Solutions360 is the Supporting Sponsor of this fall’s NSCA Best Practices Conferences to be held in October and November 2013.

As a technology partner of the NSCA, Solutions360 looks to support integrators by helping them to improve efficiency and introduce best practices to enable growth. Solutions360 will be on hand exhibiting key growth strategies as well as leading a session on Job Costing for the Operations Department; what is it and how do you use it to run more profitable projects.

During this session Brad Dempsey CEO of Solutions360 will talk about how Job costing is critical for service companies providing new installation services and project management. Detailed instruction on tracking all the costs, comparing to estimates and altering course when elements of a project changes will be covered.  Tracking job costs accurately and timely allows you to quickly discern your most and least profitable areas of your business.  This allows you to focus on the profitable elements and try to make the less profitable job types more efficient.  Having this information as it happens allows you to adjust existing projects and to alter your quoting practices to have them more accurately reflect the reality of the service or product delivery. In this session, Brad Dempsey, CEO of Solutions360 Inc. will discuss fundamental concepts behind using a job cost system including:

  • Common errors and misconceptions
  • Managing the 4 GP’s
  • Managing and projecting backlog
  • Over and Under billing
  • Red flags – predicting cost overruns
  • The evolving role of the PMO

“We are very excited to be a part of this fall’s regional events,” says Executive Vice President John Graham. “Many of our NSCA member customers have seen significant improvements in profitability and control over their businesses using these concepts and practices, so it’s existing to be able to share them with a broad number of members. Having events across the country will allow more NSCA members to have a better chance to attend and reap the benefits of the entire Best Practices Conference.  I’m look forward to seeing and meeting more members at each event.”
