Dig into your training budget

The best way to pay for BuildWitt Training is with money you’ve already set aside for training. Ask yourself these questions to make room in your training budget.

Do I have a training budget? If not, can I get one?

Setting aside a designated training budget can be tough, especially for small companies. But it’s necessary if you want your crews to be productive and profitable.

Now’s the time to talk to leadership about creating a training budget. And because you know how much BuildWitt Training costs, you can tell them what your starting budget should be!

If you don’t have a training budget and can’t start one just yet, skip to the next section.

Can I reduce other training expenses?

Your training budget may already be allocated to other programs. So, how can you make room? 

Maybe there’s a more cost-effective way to host your training seminar. Maybe you can cancel subscriptions to software your team no longer uses or needs.

Can I reallocate some money to get more value?

Sometimes, you don’t need to cut costs—you just need to move some money around to get a better value. Here’s an example:


Daily cost

per employee

Number of employees

Total cost to train

Classroom training (avg: twice a year) $408* 8 $6,528 for two days
BuildWitt Training (every day for a year) $0.34  40 $5,000 for one year
*This includes the cost of lost productivity while those employees are out of the field.1

Now, that does not mean you should completely nix classroom training. Your crews need it! But you can take some of that money and put it toward BuildWitt Training. 

Take a look at how far your $6,528 will go when you split it between the two:


What you get


Classroom training One full-day classroom session $3,264
BuildWitt Training

Implementation fee + partial towards

annual base price



See how much further your money went? Plus, you get the best of both worlds: classroom training that brings your crew together and an app they can use in the field right when they need it. 

So, what other ways can you reallocate training funds to get a better value?

Raise your prices

Okay, so you don’t have a training budget, and you need a quick, easy way to afford BuildWitt Training for your crews. The simplest solution is to raise your prices. 

For some business owners, that’s a worrisome thought. You may wonder, Will I still win bids if my prices are higher? 


Each project is worth thousands or millions of dollars, so raising your prices across multiple projects will easily cover the costs of BuildWitt Training—with minimal increases on your bids. 

In fact, you’ll likely win more bids, because word will get around that your newly trained crews are more productive and efficient. Customers will want to work with you because they know your crews will do the job right and on time.

Save up

There’s nothing like good ol’ fashioned savings! Our grandparents’ generation knew a thing or two about saving up for what they wanted. So, how can we apply that to business? 

You can save money to pay for BuildWitt Training when you: 

How you save—and how fast you do it—is up to you. You can get creative with this. The important thing is that by saving money, you can afford the training your team needs (whether that's BuildWitt Training or not).

Start with a small group of users

The ultimate goal is to train your whole team. That’s why the more users you have, the more you'll save.1

However, there is something to be said for starting small. Generally, fewer users equal fewer costs.

  1-40 users 41-100 users
Annual cost  $5,000 $8,500
Implementation fee $2,000 $3,500
Total cost $7,000 $12,000

So, you may find that it’s better for your budget to start with a small group of users. 

This strategy can also help you get the most value out of the software. You can get the pilot group's feedback. Then, when you introduce BuildWitt Training to the rest of the team, you’ll have a better idea of how to help them make the most of it.

The key is to make a plan to set your pilot group up for success. Ask questions like, 

  • How long will it last?
  • Who will be in it?
  • What feedback do I need?
  • What does success look like?

The cool thing is that once you’re a BuildWitt Training customer, you can add more users at any time. So you can start using BuildWitt Training now and get it into more team members' hands later.
