Who our clients are
Our clients are construction subcontractors. Yet there is more to the picture. They’re ambitious, smart, determined, enthusiastic, resourceful, industrious go-getters.
We understand the position many of our clients are in when they come to us. They’re splitting their time between:
- returning phone calls
- developing new products or services
- going on sales calls
- hiring or firing employees
- managing social media
- doing the bookkeeping
- answering email
- checking the jobsites
- dealing with payroll
- keeping employees motivated and happy
- and . . . well, simply putting out fires which are often left still smoldering.
This list from OSHA describes Construction Special Trade Contractors. And, it does a fair job of identifying the types of businesses our clients own.
How our clients are served
At Schulte and Schulte, we are advisers and consultants, not just bookkeepers or accounting specialists.
Why do we consider the difference important?
Bookkeeping is a component of a construction company’s financial health. Yet that is not the only component. We provide counsel and advice on financial and business issues. Advice that goes beyond the scope of entering the right numbers in the right place. It is our intention that this approach provides value to our clients in both visionary and in-the-moment ways.
It is important to us to help our clients get meaningful metrics and systems in place so they’re no longer flying blind.
We work with established construction subcontractors who have invested time and money into finding ways to grow their businesses. Subcontractors who are ready to take the next step. Subcontractors who must get familiar with and in charge of their numbers in order to grow their business and be profitable.
We partner with our clients on a long-term basis to ensure they get results from the work we do together.
