Successfully managing external contractors
When it comes to managing your internal team, there are new challenges every day, let alone managing your external team such as contractors – it adds a whole new layer of complexity. To successfully manage external contractors, you need to have a strong system in place that allows for you to easily manage them for a smooth workflow at your property.
It’s absolutely essential that you ensure you have an efficient database with all of the contractor’s information including contact information, permits, insurances, and other related documents all in one place. It’s also worthwhile to categorise the contractors by their industry to make it easy to find the right contractor for the job. By having all your contractors in one place with all their contact information, makes contacting the contractor a whole lot easier and will save you time in the long run. Essentially, the sooner you can get onto your contractor, the sooner the problem will be resolved which results in a high performing property.
To effectively communicate with your contractors, it’s important to give them as much information as possible so they can complete the job to a high standard. By having an online contractor portal, you can easily assign contractors new jobs with all the information they require. Forget having to go back and forth between multiple emails or phone calls, by having an online portal with a form with the required information, makes it much easier for both parties. The easier you are to work with, the more likely the contractor will say yes to more jobs at your property and complete the job to a higher standard.
