In a recent Read Listen Watch™, the CEO of Cotney Consulting John Kenney spoke with RoofersCoffeeShop® President Heidi J. Ellsworth about their latest programs designed to train and certify estimators.
The development of Cotney’s new training programs came about when the Cotney team realized that estimators weren’t getting as much attention regarding training. Roofing companies will train their crew members and sales team thoroughly, but with the estimators, not so often.
“Your operation won't go anywhere unless you have the most accurate estimates possible,” John says. “You're depending on that person putting that number together to be very accurate because without it everything else falls apart. This is your foundation.”
John speaks a lot about how lack of training for estimators can negatively impact your entire company. One thing he sees a lot is a lack of accuracy in the estimating process. When a project gets an incorrect estimation, your company loses money on jobs, or you might lose the job altogether.
The great thing about Cotney’s estimating training and certification programs is that anyone can take them. Whether you’re an experienced estimator or you don’t know the first thing about the estimating process, there’s a program for you! John says that they’ve even had project managers and front desk receptionists take their programs and they all got a lot out of them.
Cotney’s programs teach estimators how to estimate correctly and communicate effectively, which ultimately leads to overall company growth. John says that when estimators do their job more efficiently, “You're going to make more money. Your operation team's happier, your foreman, your crew leaders in the field are going to be happier and you're ultimately going to have a happier client.”
