Square features QuickContractors as an early adopter of their technology

image

BUILDING ON TECHNOLOGY

Founder & CEO Trevor Bouchard began Quick Contractors 12 years ago as a college student and house painter. During that time, he helped develop a website that organized appointments for other contractors, and ultimately found he was getting a lot more work doing that. Bouchard saw an opportunity to capitalize on his niche and decided to start his own business. With the help of one initial employee, the company quickly grew to become one of Canada’s largest networks of independent contractors, employing 90 staff members and creating upwards of 3000 jobs. Today, Quick Contractors handles contractor bookings for product installations at the majority of Canada’s big box retailers, including Canadian Tire, Home Depot, Rona, Lowes and Ikea. Now, with $30 million a year in sales, the business relies heavily on technology, which is where Square comes in as a valuable partner.

Because of Square, Quick Contractors is saving an amount roughly equal to 2 or 3 full-time salaries in transaction fees.

BRIDGING THE GAP

Anyone who has ever hired a contractor knows that things don’t always go according to plan. For Quick Contractors, that means there is often a need to collect additional charges from clients in the home. Traditionally, the method had been to go through a call centre for credit card approvals, a long and sometimes arduous process, or alternatively, an antiquated procedure which involved writing a credit card number on a tri-copy invoice and mailing it to head office. To make matters worse, under the old methods, payments were not always guaranteed, as transactions sometimes failed. With the help of Square however, the payment process has come a long way to bridge that gap. Now contractors can simply swipe credit cards with the magstripe reader, tap debit cards, or insert or tap credit cards using the Square Contactless and Chip Reader to complete transactions on the spot. That saves an average 10-20 minutes per customer compared to the old phone system, and that in itself has proven to be significantly valuable for workers in the field. It has also been extremely beneficial for the company. “This shift from having to involve our internal support team in the collections process has helped us save over 13% and enabled us to reallocate internal headcount to more value-add functions.”

PROFITING FROM EFFICIENCY

Efficiency of time and money is important for any business, and in dealing with things like inventory management and the costs associated with devices for each individual contractor, Bouchard knew there had to be a better way. So, he did his research and found that compared to other platforms and hardware solutions, Square was the most cost-efficient for managing the 3000- plus contractors associated with Quick Contractors. “It was just more economical for us to go with the Square model as there was no cost upfront.” And with seven figures worth of revenue coming through Square in a year, Bouchard estimates that Quick Contractors is saving an amount roughly equal to 2 or 3 full-time salaries in transaction fees. That’s not to mention all of the extra jobs we can complete in a day because the contractors aren’t spending as much time in the home.”

The efficiency of Square in saving time and cutting costs has translated into a 12.5% increase in job output.

ON THE MOVE

Quick Contractors has been using Square for over five years, and in that time, Bouchard has been impressed with how reliably and consistently the platform has updated to grow with the business. Having a remarkable capacity for customization, Square’s nimble application-programming interface allows for quick solutions in keeping up with the changing needs of both customers and contractors. One key innovation that stands out is the auto-login capability which ensures all payments are going directly through Quick Contractors, avoiding confusion with other contractors’ accounts. In addition, the app ensures that each field worker receives his or her profit from individual sales. The simplicity of Square keeps things moving smoothly for contractors, which means they are taking up less of the customers’ time, and ultimately helps to improve the overall customer experience.

SEEING CLEARLY

For Bouchard, Square has allowed him much more visibility in managing staff and individual sales, and in the end, that means better customer relations. Using Square, he can easily access the customer directory and address feedback around transactions where they may not be happy with charges. “It’s been an amazing sales tracking tool for us and definitely saves us in cost on the reconciliation side.” The company keeps a record of all invoices on Square and uses the invoice feature to generate receipts for customers so that all parties can see clearly.

AHEAD OF THE CURVE

For workers in the field, Square is a life saver; steadily evolving with technology to make any preferred method of payment easy and accessible for all customers. In particular, the options to tap for debit or swipe for credit have proven to be valuable functions that customers gravitate towards, and Bouchard believes it’s down to the great job Square has done of making customers aware of it. It is that continued evolution and sustainability of Square that matches Quick Contractors’ definition of success — a company that describes itself as a disruptor of industry, and of the space in which it works. “Square has been a tool that’s enabled us to achieve those goals and kind of stay ahead of the curve from a competitors’ perspective.”

QC Launches New Mobile App & Recognizes Top Performing Contractors at Annual Contractor Summit

QuickContractors.com recently unveiled their plans to launch their new mobile platform

QuickContractors.com recently unveiled their plans to launch their new mobile platform at their annual contractor summit in Niagara Falls Ontario in April 2015 in front of a crowd of 100 of their top contractors and clients from across the country. The new platform named “QUICKTASK” is slated to be launch on the Android mobile platform on June 10th 2015 and beta tested within their contractor network until September 2015. The full solution will be available for purchase on Android and IOS by the 4th quarter of 2015 to the general public.

We anticipate the new mobile app will revoluationize the way our network and contractors in general are able to interact with customers and clients. The industry historically has been somewhat anequated in their approach to customer transparency as it pertains to appointment windows. The new app will provide greater flexibility, cost reduction and transparency into the entire in home experience. “The “Uber Effect” as QuickContractors.com Inc’s CEO Trevor referred to it as, is changing the landscape of customer expectations in a multiptide of different industry and the home service industry wil be no different. We are confident our software will help our contractor network and eventually contractors in general stay competitive in this changing landscape.

See full opening address here:

The summit event also provided an opprotunity to recognize a cross section of our contractor network that have been at the forefront of helping us lead this revolution. While we recognize the categorize do not capture all of the hard work and effort of everyone within the organization we do feel it’s a starting point. We are hopeful that with the impelemtation of more transparent and meaningful statistics in the coming year that our annual awards event will become a key annual milestone that everyone competes for top honours at in years to come.

QuickContractors Featured in Profit Magazine

QuickContractors.com Inc CEO Trevor Bouchard featured in Profit Magazine article on Employee training.
Trevor Bouchard also spotted a failing in his firm’s customer service while in the trenches—or, more accurately, a consumer’s living room. On behalf of a retailer, Bouchard’s firm QuickContractors.com had hired a contractor to install a home appliance. Bouchard, president and CEO of his Cambridge, Ont.-based firm, watched as the installer called QuickContractors to get a routine extra charge okayed—only to be left languishing on hold looking apologetically at the homeowner while the call-centre agent polled her coworkers on how to handle this request. This incident spurred Bouchard to take steps to improve internal knowledge-sharing. ((See Yes, This Will Be on the Test! )

A Contractor you Can Bring Home to Mom

Hamilton, Ontario., ( March 17th 2009)… Extreme Home Makeovers and Renovation Rescue shows dominate today’s media landscape, everywhere we turn “Home Reno” is the topic at the forefront of our conversations. Residential renovations represent a twenty-one billion dollar a year industry in Canada, yet still there is an unprecedented amount of ambiguity surrounding the process of undertaking a home renovation project. As of late with our economy in turmoil, a New Breed of contractors is emerging who are learning how to leverage this changing landscape. The book “A Contractor You Can Bring Home to Mom” is designed to assist home owners in staying current with the rules, regulations and contractors who service this ever changing market. The book provides a unique and invaluable perspective combined with new home renovation tricks straight from the trades!

The book is co authored by award winning Young Entrepreneur of the Year Trevor Bouchard and renowned home renovation specialist and columnist Bobby Assadourian. All proceeds from the book are being donated to the charitable organization March of Dimes Canada (www.marchofdimes.ca ) in support of Barrier-Free Design Service to create a society inclusive of people with disabilities.

“Now more than ever, as the economy struggles to stay above board, homeowners want to make sure their investments are secure.” said Bobby Assadourian, co author of the book. “A home is typically the most valuable investment people own and home owners need to stay current to ensure that the “professionals” that they hire have their best interests at heart.”

The book puts a primary emphasis on understanding the renovation life cycle from all angles, including that of the contractors who service the industry and regulators who police it.

“Many times the finger of blame is pointed solely at the contractor, and the media has painted all but a select few companies with the same brush.” said Trevor Bouchard co author of the book. “The irony of the situation is many times homeowners are reluctant to invest a great deal of time prior to choosing a contractor and renovations are approached with the mindset of an everyday retail transaction, which means people often chose the biggest ad or the best looking vehicle sign”.

The book represents a major step in uncovering some of the industries most protected secrets and creates a paradigm shift in how we view trades professionals and the renovation process in general.

“The end goal is better communication between contractors and homeowners and the only way we can accomplish this is through a mutual understanding” says Bouchard.

A Contractor You Can Bring Home to Mom is available at most major book stores as well as online at lulu.com and amazon.com.

Mr. Bouchard is the current President and CEO of QuickContractors.com Inc. Canada’s leading source to find high quality prescreened contractors, an organization founded in 2004, which puts a primary emphasis on creating positive, beneficial and constructive relationships with both consumers and contractors. Mr. Bouchard has been featured in various Interviews as a home renovation industry expert on City TV’s Breakfast Television, CHCH, and CTV as well as various other radio, TV, and print mediums. Currently, he is a member of the Hamilton and Cambridge Chamber of Commerce and was awarded the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for 2007, the March of Dimes Canada Community Partnership Award in 2008 presented by the Honourable David C. Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario and QuickContractors.com Inc. was the recipient of New Venture of the Year award 2006 for the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, among various other awards.
