WHAT DOES IT COST ME?
Actually nothing other than some time learning how your business can now thrive.
Comment: The founders of C2C PRO come from a family-based business, knowing exactly what small to medium businesses in the industry have to deal with. We know you will be bombarded with offers of so-called gurus to either generate more business or show you how to do it more efficiently, and of course, they come at a cost. We constantly hear that small to medium-sized family-based builders would love to look at adopting new ways; however, cash flow is tight even in the best times.
Also, knowing that the building industry needs change, Federal and State Governments have supported us in grants previously. This has partly enabled us to firstly inform you on the direct benefits and to your customers without any cost.
Once the education process, which involves some very straightforward processes, is complete, it's up to you whether to formalise the migration of your business under C2C PRO. Even then, there is only a software usage charge when you have won a project under the platform.
So the only cost to you is to spend some time. But rather than spending time in trying to understand all the legislation that probably keeps you awake at night, you can spend less time in knowing that the pressures on your family and your business are being greatly reduced.
ARE YOU BUILDER BROKERS?
Comment: builders brokers are traditionally simply a lead source that farm out customers plans for quotes from a number of builders, and if that builder is successful, attain a 3% marketing fee from the builder that wins the project. So they offer very little other than being a middleman.
We are not a lead source in that regard. What we do, however, is educate customers that builders who provide C2CPRO services will give them the service, savings and security that few if any builders outside the program can.
We undertake that education with social media and face to face promotions when we can, like home shows, seminars etc.
Naturally, we will obtain leads directly to us from those services and depending on the profile and location of the lead we are able to match that lead to a builder using C2CPRO with no lead cost to either the customer or builder.
IS C2CPRO A FRANCHISE OR A BUILDING COMPANY?
No on either question:
Comment: C2CPRO is the parent company that has brought to market C2C PROject Flow Software, for the benefit firstly of builders and their trades and suppliers to then provide the services that customers are now demanding. So we are simply a software company with patented processes and systems that give you a new business model.
DO YOU ONLY PROVIDE PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE?
Comment: The big difference between our software and the traditional project management software at market is that project management software is mainly around management systems to quote and then manage the job once the contract is one.
C2CPRO software also provides all the components of traditional project management software, however, there are two important additional benefits:
- C2CPRO is the first patented true concept to completion software management system that collaborates all parties from designers, builders, trades and supplies under the one platform right from the very beginning and;
- unlike traditional project management software that only promises efficiency under the current flawed model, C2CPRO also delivers security of payment, lowered asset and cash needs, increased net profits, and, most importantly, customer’s benefits not seen before.
DO YOU DO ESTIMATING FOR ME?
Comment: for you to take on the vital role of managing the project for your customer its important right from the very start that you understand exactly what the customers' needs are and ensuring that you get it right. That is why you taking control of the estimating process from the start is a good idea. Part of our patented process is enabling you to quickly qualify your potential customers and reducing the risks and time spent in endless estimates without a clue in knowing the likelihood of winning the project.
Your learning process deals with this aspect. With some exciting add on features such as customers being able to test their wish list and budget against a Concept Discovery Program and a cloud-based Shopping List Program, this quickly qualifies your customer putting them on a pathway of knowing they too are on the right track.
DOES YOU PROGRAM COMPLY WITH LEGISLATION?
Comment: one of the first things that you will discover very quickly under the education process is that everything is, as one builder called it, a "no-brainer." The power under the patented process is simplicity in the use of legislation. You will quickly realise that this is the way you should be doing business in your own mind, and why hasn't someone thought of it before. Well, that someone is us, with a wealth of experience of knowing what the industry really has to put up with, and with the support of construction lawyers, what parts of legislation can be applied to provide solutions.
ALL THIS SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, CAN IT BE TRUE?
Knowledge is the only way for you to judge that question. The fact is obtaining that knowledge comes at no cost other than some time. Far less time than learning how to deal with a claim under the BIF Act, or learning how to comply with your Minimum Financial requirements, just as a start.
The choice on keeping on going under your current model, or spending some time in at least finding out what other builders have changed to, is up to you. A change that enables a seamless transition from the old to the new, for the right reasons only.
We are committed to building better businesses for builders.
