The electrical industry is currently dealing with numerous challenges. Besides the everyday grind of running an electrical service business — making payroll, winning bids, adhering to industry regulations — you may be experiencing a shortage of qualified electricians. Additionally, because of the current construction market, residential and commercial, fewer electrical bids are available for you to respond to, minimizing the ability to bring in new business.

They are getting the job done with less full-time employees and fewer resources. To stay competitive in your marketplace, you have to provide better customer service and manage your bids or service calls efficiently. To stay profitable in the current economy, you need to minimize overhead costs to increase your bottom line.
