Challenges and Aspirations:
Before the Ontraccr era, Bath Boys faced the complexities of manually tracking hours, managing project budgets, and ensuring a delightful client experience. "We were spending a lot of time on data entry and administrative work, diverting our focus from what truly matters in the business," adds Arian.
The Onboarding Journey:
The onboarding process with Ontraccr marked a pivotal shift for Bath Boys. While there was initial hesitation from the team accustomed to traditional methods, Arian notes, "After a hands-on onsite meeting and a thorough walkthrough, the team was excited to have a piece of technology that made their lives easier."
Post-implementation, Ontraccr proved to be more than just a tool; it became an operational ally. Bath Boys experienced a notable reduction in administrative time, freeing up resources that were redirected towards core business activities. Arian estimates a 30% decrease in the time dedicated to payroll processing, allowing him to focus on client interactions and strategic decision-making. "It's helped me streamline my approach, and I'm able to spend more time on client-facing activities," confirms Arian.
Attempting to quantify the impact, Arian highlighted a significant improvement in closing rates, potentially doubling from the pre-Ontraccr era. "With the help of Ontraccr, we're probably closing two out of 10 jobs that we're seeing, which is very good in this economy," mentions Arian.

Features like receipt tracking and expense management are on the radar to enhance financial transparency. The scheduling feature is anticipated to be a game-changer as the company envisions managing multiple projects simultaneously.
