Starting out, many contracting businesses use QuickBooks®. It’s fairly easy to use and is a simple program. But, the problem many run into is that they wish it could do a little more. They wish it had a powerful dispatch and schedule board or the ability to track service history on customer equipment, serial numbers, inventory, etc.)
Often times this leads business owners to purchase more software or ‘bolt-on’ programs that work alongside QuickBooks®. Sooner or later you end up having over 3 software programs all managing your business – from accounting, inventory, sales management, scheduling, and more. You shouldn’t have to manage multiple software programs. The programs should be helping manage your business.
This exact scenario happened to James Leichter, Founder and President of Aptora. He started out as helper for an HVAC, electrical, and plumbing contractor and eventually went out on his own and launched two very successful mechanical contracting companies. He was tired of not being able to find one software program to run his entire contracting business so he decided to create it. The hope was to create a program like QuickBooks® but with a dozen or more must-have features designed specifically for the service industry. (Quickbooks is a registered trademark of Intuit Inc.)
He assembled a “dream team” of individuals that understood the industry and consisted of QuickBooks® experts, accountants, service technicians, owners of contracting businesses, electrical engineers and a noted tax attorney to create Total Office Manager®. For years he used the revolutionary program to run his own business. After fine tuning it, it was released to the industry in 2004.
