Tracking productivity is so important in a residential painting business. There are many ways to track productivity. There is excellent software that can help you do this but it all begins and ends with training your painting crew leaders properly and making sure your team communicates effectively. There should be daily check ins, checklists and measuring of what is actually being accomplished on the job site. If you don’t have systems to measure and evaluate what is happening, then you are really just running your business blindly. So measuring and tracking your productivity are really the most important things here. It’s the first step in being able to improve your teams’ productivity.
