Helping Contractors Grow Profitably

Tools for Contractors

Tools for Contractors

Industry software addresses major issues across a broad range of Contractors, and integrates at a very high level with other major technologies.  It is impossible for a major piece of industry software to address the specific needs of all Contractors or to fully integrate with all other technologies.

In the process of helping clients streamline their businesses, our Technology Solutions Group has built hundreds of tools to address features and integrations that do not exist in industry software.

Some of these are proprietary and designed to address a very unique need for a specific client providing a competitive advantage.  Most others address relatively generic business processes impacting multiple Contractors. 

We have built up a substantial base of knowledge, code, reporting and infrastructure tools allowing us to address most needs with minimal customization.  Some of these tools are available to the broader market through our DBM Tools website, while some of the more complex tools are available only to our Management Advisory or Agile Development Retainer clients. 

Below is a list of some of the tool categories along with our most common software integrations.
