Three ways ActiveCare Direct helps you give more accurate bids
- You will know how to better allocate machines. Through ActiveCare Direct monthly reporting, you can see which machines are being used most frequently on a job and which ones are underutilized and could be used to improve operations on another job site. Ultimately, removing underutilized machines from multiple job sites could mean creating the opportunity to bid more jobs overall and vastly increase your profits.
- You will more accurately project hard costs (and trim the fat). Through monthly fleet utilization reports and model statistics that provide fuel usage and machine hours for each of your machines, you will be able to more accurately project fuel costs, machine upkeep, maintenance and labor for jobs you plan to bid.
- You will be able to avoid costly underbidding. Bidding is a competitive process, and you want to be one of the lowest bids to ensure you get an initial meeting. However, underbidding and then having a job fall behind due to a machine going down can mean the job costs money instead of creating profit. With ActiveCare Direct, you will not only be able to accurately give your customers the lowest bid for the job and reduce overhead, but will also be able to provide customers more value through a guarantee that your job will stay on track. Because of machine alerts provided through ActiveCare Direct, you can predict when your machines need attention before they go down.
