Stopping the Hidden Profit Killer

Unplanned downtime is costly, but construction equipment maintenance software can help you hold it to below 5%.

The profit killer lurking for many contractors is unplanned downtime. This is the time, outside of scheduled maintenance, when breakdowns or emergency repairs knock a machine out of service. However, contractors with best-in-class maintenance processes supported by software like B2W Maintain can change the equation by taking unplanned downtime rates to five percent or lower.

Costing Construction Equipment Accurately with B2W Software

Without accurate rates and a way to assign them, you never really know if you’re making – or losing – money on a job.

Best-in-class heavy construction contractors accurately cost their equipment. Doing this requires two things: an efficient method for tracking equipment utilization time on the job and an accurate calculation of what it costs to operate that equipment. The B2W Software ONE Platform can help with both.

For Subcontractors, Estimating Software Does More Than Help Them Win Bids

Running alternate scenarios and adapting to scope changes are areas where spreadsheets can’t keep up when it comes to writing winning bids

Think about heavy construction estimating, and putting together winning bids is probably the first thing that comes to mind. For companies that serve frequently as subcontractors, however, the ability to evaluate and present multiple alternative scenarios for general contractors can be equally important. Adapting bids to changes in the job scope is also an everyday requirement.
