What is painting business software?

Painting contractor software like Jobber helps business owners estimate jobs, schedule painters, organize job details, and get paid—all on one platform. 

Plus, Jobber syncs with QuickBooks Online accounting software so you can monitor your inventory, track time on the job, and keep your data up to date without double entry.

Here’s how Jobber’s software with CRM helps your painting business run more smoothly for you and your customers:

  • Manage client information and job details in one place 
  • Send automated updates before, during, and after the work that keep customers informed while you stay focused on the job at hand
  • Create a job and assign it to a crew member or yourself with only a few clicks
  • Track time and expenses to see exactly how much was spent on each job
