Our Ideal Clients

At Apparatus we’ve come to understand that our most successful clients share a set of mindsets and characteristics that set them apart from other contractors.

Contracting entrepreneurs who have these mindsets and characteristics are clients we can really help succeed.

Potential clients who don’t have these mindsets or characteristics simply are not a fit for Apparatus.

Here is the list of the seven mindsets and characteristics of our ideal clients:

1.) Growth Centered:You are determined to grow your construction business and you are excited by the challenge.
2.) Critical Problem:You view having an accurate set of books tailored specifically to the unique bookkeeping needs of a construction-industry company as an essential capability that you are determined to possess for your company.
3.) Coachable:You are a life-long learner who seeks out good ideas from all sources. You are excited by the prospect of learning more and adapting your company’s tools and methods to achieve success.
4.) Goal Driven:You enjoy identifying stretch goals for your contracting business that take you beyond your comfort zone. You love the challenge of creating the future roadmap for your business and striving to hit new and challenging goals.
5.) Decisive:You are decisive. You are comfortable making decisions and you love taking on new challenges to achieve your goals. You have the respect and support of your partners and your team.
6.) Collaborative:You enjoy finding team members, vendors, and collaboration partners who have expertise in areas where you have less experience. You partner with them to help you succeed.
7.) Cash Confident:While you still have aggressive goals for increasing the profitability of your company, you are confident of your ability to succeed and are well beyond day-to-day cash-flow survival mode.


We don’t expect every client to be an exact fit to this list, but we do use this list as a guide for selecting the contracting entrepreneurs we invite to enroll into the Apparatus Operations Advantage™ program.
