What Others Say About CS2

I quoted two projects this week with your software. The clients had their number within 10 minutes of looking at their project. I landed both jobs, because we were right on top of it. The first customer told me they had other prices that were 40% less than mine but they had trouble with follow up. I told them that we weren't flexible with our number because we know what it takes to satisfy our client and are willing to charge for that satisfaction. And I mean it was seamless. Looked at their job, quoted it in my truck, brought it back in so they could see it, emailed it to them, was asked to make a revision, and then asked to schedule. Sweet! Thanks a ton James!

CS2 is like no other Flat Rate System for Electricians That I have seen. This is for Electricians from an Electrician. The Tasks and Times are very accurate; it comes with an Overhead Calculator, which makes it very easy to create your selling price. I would recommend this product for any home Electrical Service Company.

Since my start with Contractor Success Systems,  job closure has tripled. The highly professional service this software system has, is why my confidence in this system is so great. Not only the program,  but also the vast amount of practical on the job experience, that shines through every part of it.  It is easy to forget the amount of work that goes into a task and running a business,  but with CS2,  all of that is built in.  The thought that went into each task extends into the back office.  With direct input into quickbooks online,  it more than pays for itself in the time saved from double entry. Great job James and crew!

New member here. I went into business in 89 and have been flat rating for about 15 years. I was trying to find one program to get rid of 6 that I was using.
I found it!

There is so much great information in the forum, and the contributions by everyone is nothing like I've ever seen. Tight group in here. The forums are worth the monthly fee alone.

On the 18th of December 2012, I joined CS2. I spent more than two years reading about the program on the forums, I Private Messaged James with questions many times and he took the time to answer every one of them in short order. He made no attempt to sell me the program and that is the number one reason I felt I could trust him in business. His customer service is second to none. If there is an issue, he will get on it and do what it takes to fix the issue.

We have a forum for the members to learn all about Flat Rate pricing. How to sell the work, and also talk about what we see in the field, along with finding ways to solve problems we run into every day. As a business owner----this is one of the best tools in my tool belt. All the members are business owners and we pull all we know together to learn what we don't know.

Also, we have Billy from Contractor Revolution Media. He builds web sites, and can help get your best advertising available on the market. For example, tell him what you want on your business card and he will design it. I did exactly that, and now I have a big box of Business cards. My clients always ask----"where did you have them made?"

Indeed On the 18th of December 2012 I opened a door that made my business life so much better. A system that creates the proper calculations so you WILL make a good profit. You will be able to grow your business as big as you wish.

James's Customer service cannot be beaten in my opinion. He will help you get to the next level in your business and he has a great forum that you can learn so much from other business owners. James is down to earth and is one of the men, you can talk to him strait, and he will give you the same respect.

Again James made no attempt to sell me the program, He simply told me how it worked and asked me to feel free to ask any questions on how the system works.

After many years of pricing the old fashioned way and not making any real money to speak of, I started searching for a better and more modern way to do business without paper invoices and having to spend family time to work up the estimates and not sending them by snail mail.

Now when I arrive I already have my customers data in the customer list , I just pull up the work to be done by touching it on the iPad click on their name and have them sign the estimate on the iPad screen with the set pricing already there and your done !! The its emailed on the spot.

My income jumped into the black very quickly and I've never looked back with regret for joining CS2.

We have been using “Contractors Success Systems” software for a number of years now. It allowed us to get rid of the paper, lost notes, and confusion that plagues most all of us. We have been able to streamline the quoting process, keep track of invoicing, and make changes to the business to bring better service to our customers. The staff is excellent at helping you out and answering your questions and concerns, and that is not just about the software but the business side of things too. Ultimately it has helped our shop to become extremely competitive at a higher level, all the while maintaining a healthy profit margin. I highly recommend utilizing the software and all the company has to offer!

I have been using the system for nearly two years now.  To call this anything less than essential would be doing a disservice to what it has done for me.  The amount of time it saves me from office paperwork is priceless.  I no longer need to come home after a long day and type up handwritten notes into spreadsheet and mail out an invoice or quote.  Everything is done onsite. My customers receive quotes nearly instantaneously, and I'm no longer trying to estimate on the fly. 

The team at CS2 is very  attentive and constantly striving to help advance my business as a whole.  I'm glad I can count of them being in my corner when I need them. 

I have been a member of CS2 since 2010. I started when they offered just a book.
I believe James created the first flat rate pricing app on the market. It was a rough start at first but with time, it just got better and better.
This new version of the software is by far the best and one of the best pieces of software I have seen, and I have seen and used a lot.

I am very pleased with the products I have purchased. The Precision Pricing Flat Rate program is for every electrical contractor no matter the size.
I can't say about the plumbing and HVAC but if he spent the time on those trades like he did with the electrical, they will have and awesome program to use too.

I love the ability to customize it to my company. It's simple and easy to use, perfect for all contractors to start with and/or service contractors no matter how long you have been in business. Great to give to all service tech's.

Customers will always try to sway pricing, which it's hard to change prices in writing.
It's great to have a ""menu"" of services so the customers can see that the prices didn't just come out of the air. Then sell them on becoming a service member and the saving prices are there too. I will recommend it to any electrical contractor."

Keep up the good work!

I am part owner of an electrical service company in the San Francisco bay area and we have been serving our clients since 1999.
We started using the CS2 system in 2011 and have been very happy with the program and with the support staff. 
In the past we used paper and pen to give the customer a number that we thought would be profitable for us. And sometimes we would get the job and sometimes we would not. 
Ever since we signed up with CS2 we have closed more business, gained more clients, clients love to see that we give them an "up front honest price”, they love the professional look (using a portable device iPad or Samsung pad) and most important we make a good ethical profit. 
The system comes with a cost calculator. That opened up our eyes as to what we REALLY need to charge in order to stay in business and make a profit.
If you are a service contractor doing plumbing, electrical or HVAC systems, you owe it to your self and to your family to at least try the system for 6 months. You have nothing to lose except the profit that is rightfully yours if you don’t sign up.
