P.A.P. Construction Video Testimonial - OST & QB

Video Transcript:

PP: My name is Paul Peltier. I work with PAP contracting and my job title is owner. Under that title, I do it all.

OCS: What type of work does your company specialize in?

PP: We specialize in caulking and waterproofing.

OCS: What type of building does your company specialize in? Hospitals, etc.?

PP: Commercial projects; hospitals would be one. Schools, churches, retail office buildings, warehouses, the whole spectrum except we don’t get into utilities nor residentials.

OCS: What software from OCS do you use?

PP: We use OST to do our quantitative surveys and we use QB to price it out.

OCS: How long have you been using those 2 products?

PP: I want to say in excess of 2 years.

OCS: Prior to that what did you use?

PP: We were using a digitizer & importing into excel using a basic spreadsheet.

OCS: What made you change from that process to our software?

PP: Basically when the industry moved to digital documents, where there is less and less paper, we figured we’d move the whole process to be digital. It definitely keeps the clutter down in the office.

OCS: What did you think about yesterdays and todays training?

PP: Very good. We’ve been using the program for 2 years and I wanted to be able to use it to its maximum.
