The million dollar problems Chalkstring solves.
Whether your focus is on interiors, facades or any other trade, many specialist subcontractors running construction projects face the same business issues.
"It’s hard to understand individuals’ tender & commercial spreadsheets."
"Our teams waste time entering the same data multiple times."
We over-order material and over-pay labour because we don't have easy-to-access audit trails.
"We just can’t find that one piece of critical project information."
"We can’t see in real-time how our projects are performing."
"We’re not sure if we’re making or losing money on our jobs until they're finished."
