“We have been using LiteningFast since 1997 and I can tell you that it paid for itself on the first job. I am not great on computers yet this is so easy to use.
The two best things this program has offered us is to help our customers gain trust and confidence in us and to also protect ourselves from having to give our customers any extras without getting paid for them.
With the easy to generate detailed estimate we now incorporate our estimate with our contract so it takes all the guessing and assuming out of the equation. If it’s not on the detailed estimate then we didn’t charge you for it therefore we need to generate a change order.
The second thing is our customers love it. When we bid against other contractors who come in with this lump sum price that sometimes leaves them sticker shocked we come in with this estimate that’s broken down in every aspect of construction and they can see how we arrived at this lump sum price rather than something we just pulled out of the air.
Our customers are impressed and feel like they can actually see what they are getting for their money before we even start.
The best thing is they thank me for spending so much time to give them such a detailed estimate when it has really only taken me an hour to put together a 150k addition.
