Ever have an installation go well but the relationship gets ruined because of a miscommunication with the homeowner? Or have something go wrong on a job because sales made a verbal promise that was never communicated to the installation crew?

The reason — because this is when most contractors drop the ball, leaving the customer feeling forgotten, or even misinformed. The lack of a proven communication process with your customers hurts your bottom line with bad reviews and losses in referrals or repeat business.
