If you listen to Contractor Evolution, there’s a good chance you’re not only an entrepreneur, but you are smart enough to understand that you’ll have big opportunities to cut your costs using software in the next few years.

However, understanding what a software service does vs implementing it are two COMPLETELY different things.

In fact, if you’ve tried getting your team to adopt new tech at some point already, it can easily lead to you wanting to fire everyone, quit the trades, and start a simpler business like building space stations.

All joking aside, it’s not easy to embrace change, especially when it comes to tech.

My guest on the show today is Brett Jones, a Key Account Executive of Data Solutions at BuilderTrend.  

Over the last 3 years, Brett has done over 150 On Site Consultations helping builders, GC, and Remodelers implement BuilderTrend so that it functions at its fullest and delivers the highest possible ROI for the Entrepreneur and their team.

To learn what Brett has observed about the builders that succeed in this area, vs those that don’t, listen to this episode.

Episode Highlights:


Why so much of the contracting industry hold their cards close and why that isn't working as a competitive advantage anymore
The Profile of a strong tech implementer vs poor tech implementer (after implementation consulting with 150 Contractors)
How the contracting industry has changed as a result of tech adoption and the big picture trends that will shape the industry in the next 10 years
The impact of venture capital in the contracting market and how it’s changing the way contracting companies are being run
Where Buildertrend is innovating in the contracting space and the big value they will be bringing builders in fintech
Advice to young entrepreneurs for the next decade - where they should focus their attention for maximum results
