Profit

A culture of profitability

Marque & tent hire companies generate hundreds and thousands, even millions in revenue, but most do not know where their profit is coming from.

Marquee Tech helps to create a culture of profitability in your business, where everyone from the sales agents to the pickers knows their role in ensuring each booking stays profitable.

And it all starts with understanding your costs per booking.

In the chart above we are tracking the difference between our estimate costs and the true costs (payroll, P/O's, cleaning) of a booking.

Costs per booking

Run each booking through a quick costing calculator to understand the cost of sale to your business.
