Many business managers know how critical it is to analyze data and KPIs, or Key Performance Indicators, to see how their business is performing, but it can be difficult finding the right information. The same issue applies to roofing contractors trying to assess their data. Sorting through spreadsheets of overwhelming data can lead to roofing business owners, managers, and leaders not even attempting to analyze it. They are missing valuable insights that can help assess the overall business, make more informed decisions, optimize operations, and more.
The first step in analyzing your roofing data is to focus on KPIs or Key Performance Indicators for your business. Key Performance Indicators are quantifiable performance measures over time for a specific objective. KPIs provide targets for teams to work toward, milestones to gauge progress, and insights that help everyone in the organization make better decisions.
If you don’t know your business’ KPIs, you can start by asking basic questions like, Do you know what your projected sales are for next month, next quarter, and next year? Or, Do you know which customers have a manufacturer warranty that goes with a maintenance contract?
