Exhausting the budget for your Whole Home program can cause headaches or even program failure. Unfortunately, these programs have a large number of variables that can contribute to depleted budgets, including expensive lead generation, heavy administrative duties, and uneconomical QA/QC methods. And utilizing highly manual task management systems like paper folders and Excel files only contributes to the challenges.

By streamlining processes and taking better advantage of technology, managers can ensure that their programs adhere to budgets. In the new eBook, Five Challenges for Whole Home Program Success, we list ways that successful Whole Home Program managers have maximized their program budgets that include:
