Successful builders recognize and reap the benefits of a well-organized Purchase Order System. It starts with a defined and complete estimate or budget that lists all the materials and work needed for a project. In our webinar Purchase Orders for Profit participants will learn how to successfully implement and optimize a Purchase Order System to create efficiency, accountability and ultimately increase profits.
Builders who optimize their Purchase Order Systems know that by assigning each item a cost code they can create significant business efficiencies, effectively track change orders and account for site conditions.
Participants in this webinar will learn:
- How to setup a complete Purchase Order System.
- Effective uses of Variance Purchase Orders.
- Estimating improvements through Purchase Orders.
- How to capture Change Orders with Purchase Orders.
