How long is the learning curve?
Minutes! GiddyUp is truly Software so simple, it's used! ® Most of the time, we'll have you up and running that same day. Once your company is set-up, you simply begin making quotes and communicating with your customers. You can do a quick training session with a GiddyUp Personal Sales Assistant who can help you begin making quotes on the spot while learning the system – your business doesn’t have to stop!
How is GiddyUp better than Excel?
Excel wasn't designed to help you run your business and it can't be used anytime and at anyplace. Why invest all of the time in a tool that is difficult to set-up, hard to maintain, difficult to standardize/centralize, lacks security and back-up, lacks reporting capability, and relies totally on the responsibility and discipline of users that could walk-out with no notice and cannot be accessed anytime from anywhere.
GiddyUp is customized to fit your business and does the work for you. Your information is located on multiple servers with companies that specialize in information backup and security to ensure that your data will never be lost and will always be secure. If you lose an office manager that handles sending out your quotes and communicating with customers will Excel help you out? No, but a GiddyUp Personal Sales Assistant can.
Is my information secure?
Yes, more secure than in your office. Our servers (with your data) are located in a secure environment with back -up electricity, security, and air conditioned space. As your Information Technology team, we ensure that the latest upgrades, patches, and anti-virus are protecting your business data inside GiddyUp. We also ensure that your data is backed-up and contingencies are in place to continue your business in the event of a major disaster.
Will I be able to access my information and generate quotes anywhere and anytime?
Yes, all you need is access to a personal computer tied to a high-speed internet connection. GiddyUp allows you to work from anywhere and at anytime, like your life demands.
Do I start from scratch and have to build or purchase databases?
No. We have already built a database for your specific trade. This includes labor, equipment, materials, scope as well as basic terms and conditions. You can simply add those items that are unique to your company. At anytime you can ask your GiddyUp Personal Sales Assistant to update or setup your bid database with your company information.
Can quotes be adjusted according to the project types, locations, etc.?
Absolutely! GiddyUp has the unique ability to war-gaming pricing. This feature allows you to increase or decrease pricing where you think it makes sense to win the business or maximize profitability. You can revert back to the original pricing anytime by a simple click of the mouse.
Will I still be able to use automated pricing from trade groups or other businesses I work with?
Definitely! GiddyUp is built in .NET and SQL allowing it to easily tie to other systems and databases. GiddyUp will save you a lot of time in updating and maintaining materials lists. We'll even provide most trade or business groups the ability to automate their pricing through an Application Programming Interface (API).
Will GiddyUp save me time? Yes. All of your business can be viewed from a simple pipeline view on the first page. Organize all of your quotes your way by using the folders features. And the rest is point-and-click. You have control of the pricing and it is easy to update to ensure that everyone is using the correct prices. GiddyUp holds your important data and bids in one secure place. No time is wasted on training new employees that could walk out or quit at anytime. It's Software so simple, it's used! ®
Will GiddyUp force me to change the way I do estimating now?
No. GiddyUp standardizes the way you want your business to run; without making you learn a new way, new language or new formulas. It helps to ensure that quotes are done quickly, accurately, communicated to customers and most importantly, the way you want it done.
Are there any hidden costs?
No. There is no maintenance or hidden fees in GiddyUp and never any termination fees. GiddyUp is also affordable with costs starting at only $99/month. That amounts to only $3 a day! That's about as much as your cell phone or cable bill costs.
