Contractor in Charge: A True Companion in Field Service

Lynn Wise, Founder & CEO
The journey of Contractor in Charge goes back to 1989, when Lynn Wise, Founder and CEO of the company, worked for a plumbing and a heating company as a part-owner and general manager. During this period, she witnessed the struggle that the industry was undergoing to hire the right people to perform a specific task. They also lacked the right skills or funds to train appropriate people to execute various business operations effectively. When she left her job after 15 years, she worked in several companies like Yellow Pages and IBM to advance her knowledge of technology and how to implement for the service industry.

At this time, she had an idea of decentralizing operational and financial services for contractors, but she couldn’t bring it to reality because there was a dearth of advanced technologies. However, in 2014, with the help of cloud-based software, she wrote a business case and built a business model, which helped her to hire and assign resources to the clients based-on not where they’re located, but what skills they had. This was the genesis of Contractor in Charge.

Fast forward to 2020, the company is at the forefront of empowering plumbing, HVAC, and other service trades business owners through a complete virtual office solution. Contractor in Charge’s solution is offered in such a way that it can be supplemental to their existing staff, or it can be a complete replacement solution for their staff.

The company’s wide range of services includes customer care, bookkeeping and accounting, and other office administrative services. The company is also skilled and certified in cash flow coaching, dispatch, payroll, and more, which help business owners to run their business better while dedicating time in training and improving their field technicians to deliver quality projects and services to customers. “Our ultimate aim is to allow clients to do what they do the best. Meanwhile, at the backend, we are actively helping them run their daily operations and grow their business through regular profits,” remarks Lynn.

As the company’s team of experts has a vast experience in the field of plumbing and HVAC business, they do not need prior training on client’s software or on how to handle their customer calls, leads situations, nor their outbound calls.

“We can also create tailor-made resources for our clients and equip their business completely with our services within a matter of two weeks to a month,” says Lynn.

Contractor in Charge has proven to be a game-changer to numerous global organizations with its robust, skilled, and trained business resources. For instance, one of Contractor In Charge’s clients felt helpless, and hostage to the people managing bookkeeping and customer care services and could not comprehend that they had an alternative to handle these operations. The client then approached Contractor in Charge and sought help in performing their bookkeeping process. Contractor in Charge not only helped them in bookkeeping and accounting but also managed their every office operation from answering phone calls, doing outbound calls to assisting in cash flow management. With this partnership, the client was able to triple their sales in three years and increase their cash flow management to 3,000 percent.

Scripting similar success stories, over the last 35 years, Lynn has owned five successful small businesses, including plumbing, heating repair, and remodelling company. Currently, Contractor in Charge is exploring opportunities to incorporate innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning into their services to enable their clients to have 24/7 transparency on their business. Additionally, the company is looking forward to creating a call-a-service solution that would be handling the inbound and outbound client call in a single software package versus the client having separate field service management software.
