Objections…We Have Been There?

We Understand How to Improve You Fast!

We understand you may have objections so we compiled some of the most frequently asked objections and questions to help make certain you feel great about your new purchase! After you review the objections below, make sure to see the Frequently Asked Question Page.

Results to your frequently stated objections:

1. I Can’t Justify This Cost Right Now!

You may have just dropped $90k on the new paver or $20k on that new sealer truck because you needed it for your business. Think of all the Money & Time spent on what YOU feel is important:

  • Having nice equipment that looks nice to impress your customers
  • Uniforms on your employees
  • Clean trucks and nice barricades and signage
  • Work orders, job cost sheets and details galore on the back end of your company

Now for a minute, imagine if you examined the following, like you do equipment & field operations:

  • What has my sales team done to contribute to the bottom line?
  • The Money & Time spent on looking at work you never got?
  • The Money & Time spent on wondering what your pipeline of Open, Closed, Won, Lost or Cancelled projects is?
  • The Money & Time spent on Communicating with crews and customers, sending information back and forth and the tracking required to keep customers, crews and office team happy?
  • The Money & Time spent on HOW TO PRODUCE KICK ASSPHALT PROPOSALS that are 100% better than we do it today in less than 5 minutes!

Well, PavementLayers is a lot less money than what you spend on all your other  “TOOLS” and according to our customers, PavementLayers Tool pays for itself in less than 1-week…and in most cases the first 2 projects your propose! This tool keeps you running every day, making your life easier, customers happier and internal office staff less frustrated!

And before you say “We don’t have the time right now”…”your entire company will be up, running and using this in less than 2 hours, saving you more money that any other piece of equipment saves you today!”


2. We Have Our Own System We Built?

“We have our own software we have been building for years that does a lot more than yours and we have a lot of money & times in our system”.…90% of the time if these companies pause, and take 15 minutes to see how we have a process supported with simple to use software that instantly will make an immediate impact…they purchase and love the results of Pavement Layers & WheelitOff, and quickly realize that our cost/benefit is no contest to what they have today….as well as an ordinary person is up and using Pavement Layers in 20 minutes!

Ask us for many references who will share how we change and improve our tools constantly to keep up with the most important needs of our customers as well as property owners and managers.  We are experts in the process of improving your pavement business in a simple manner that gives you more time with your customers, crew and family.  If you have people at your company who are techies, but not seasoned, proven pavement experts….maybe you should challenge them with a call with our team?

We are not just software like you have now!  Who improves it? Who is searching and seeking ways everyday to improve the experience you, your employees and customers have.  We have a 3 year track record with top firms all over North America, with well over $2bill of completed work through our system.  Give us a try before justifying that what you already have is the best?

3. Too Busy to Consider This Now!

This is, well, very funny!

We give you more time & freedom–FAST– faster than any other tool you can imagine, other than maybe winning the lottery!

No matter what time of the year, we are sure everyone around you will say that “he/she is always busy and never has enough time”! This is the disease of a contractor that we can improve only if YOU are willing to do something about it!

You will say you have no time now because you…

  • are sooo busy right now looking at work and have tons of work to look at, so we don’t need anything new now!
  • we’re busy training and finding new people for the field and sales!
  • the weather has been bad where we are, so we are jammed with trying to schedule to work!
  • or…..the best objection, we do this in the winter!  So, suffer during the most important time to make hay….why again?

We have had success of setting up company’s in the middle of the busiest month or week.  The results are the same:

  • We immediately save you time!
  • We enable you to engage faster & better with your company, crews and customers!
  • You can focus on things you are not focusing on today like closing a higher percentage of work you look at, developing great team leaders, and managing collections before they become a problem!
  • You will save significant time & costs it take to look at and close work!

Be smarter. Work with a Company who understands more than you may realize, about what you need now to make your life significantly easier! We have hundreds of contractors, small & large, who will share how this has changed their lives for the better—and Yes, they always said they were too busy like you!  Contact Us Now

4. We Are Not Techy!

Everything you will experience with Pavement Layers is simple and easier than you do it today.  It does not matter if you are the owner, a salesperson or office personnel, if you value your time, quality of life, doing better and being your best—you can use this software very easily!

  • This is built specifically for the pavement industry — to be simple — and we are constantly adding and improving!
  • You do need some computer ability, but not much.  If you or your employees do not have the attitude to do things better and different to make life easier—sorry this is not for you.
  • If you have team members who have no computer ability—spend 1 hour and and have them trained in a simple manner.  You are a Pavement Contractor, not a trainer, let us help!
  • When you see the results of giving an ipad ($600) to someone with little or no technical ability and how they can meet with customers, create proposals that are well written and look beautiful in as little as 5-minutes closing better work—you will have happier more satisfied employees who will value themselves and the company like never before!
5. We Do The Same Thing With Quickbooks…

Sorry, but there is no comparison!

Quickbooks IS a great accounting software…We love it and use it everyday! However, no matter how much you have customized it, the proposals produced are no comparison to what you could be doing in less time today with Pavement Layers!

The first document you share with your customer/client is missing half the things you talked about and it looks like an invoice!  Your customer listened to all the details and process you shared prior to receiving their proposal and now what you sent them is missing what most differentiates you from all the other competitors.  It’s never about low price when you know what you are buying!

Present Better.

Close More Work.

Save Time & Money Today!

Pavement Layers produces proposals that tell a nice simple story that your customers/prospects will love in 90% less time with far better results!

6. Excel, Word and Other Software Does the Same…

You are currently spending a lot of time, money and frustration producing something that is complicated and challenging to share — and not so mobile! It’s all about what your customers desire, not what you want!  We have a focused understanding of what your customers desire, and we have a solution that you may never know existed!

As 30+ year experts in the industry, we used to do the same time-consuming, pain-in-the-butt activities trying to connect multiple software programs with a result that eventually worked — but wasted a lot of time and energy!

Pavement Layers is the one centralized place where you and the entire company can see all activity and advancements on all of your projects and share it in seconds!

Compared to how you create proposals today, use spreadsheets to track sales and stuff,  we guarantee our process will produce 100%+ better proposals in a fraction of the time! And your customers will love it!

7. You Don’t Have Job Costing Yet?

We do for Sealcoating, and it is amazingly simple!

We have not yet released job-costing for the paving, concrete and excavation modules — and won’t do so for at least the next 2 quarters.  We are in the testing and re-testing stage and will keep you informed.

We suggest the you keep estimating your work the way you do it now!  Combining your existing estimating process with a far better way to Present, Track and Produce proposals that win work and will make your life a lot easier!

Look at the examples of the hundreds of other successful Pavement Layers contractors, and how this will improve you today, even if it does not have job-costing, YET!

There are many great estimating tools, but they can be cumbersome, hard to work with, harder to train and produce horrible looking proposals.  Many of our existing clients may have had spreadsheets, various bidding software tools etc— we will always work with you to figure out the most efficient, easiest way for you and your company to integrate with Pavement Layers!
