      Frequently asked questions:

      Q. What is Sweeten Insights?

      Your Company Performance page is a section on your Sweeten Dashboard that tracks all your performance statistics. You can view it any time here.

      Q. Why are performance statistics valuable?

      Your performance statistics give you a clear and objective window on your strengths and weaknesses regarding winning new jobs. They allow you to pinpoint the areas where changes would make the biggest improvement.

      They also give your Account Manager information they can use to help you improve your profile and client communications.

      Q. What time period will I see statistics for?

      You can view performance statistics for the previous month, the previous 3 months, or the previous 12 months. If you are newer to Sweeten, the longer timeframes may not yet be populated.

      Q. How can I best use this information?

      You’ll get answers to questions like:

      • Of the jobs you bid on, how many do you win?
      • Of the clients we introduce to you, how many request a site visit?
      • Of the prospective clients who see your profile, how many ask for an introduction?
      • How do you compare against the top-performing GCs in the Sweeten network nationally? Or in your market?
      • How close are you to earning All-star status?

      Tracking these numbers will help you and your Sweeten Account Manager improve your strategy.

      *All-star requirements: You must have won at least 3 awarded projects total. You must win 3 awards or $250k in contracts in the last 2 years, on a rolling basis. This will switch to 1 year on January 1, 2022.

      Currently, 10-15% of our GCs are all-stars.

      Working backwards like this will show you what numbers you need, as well as where you might want to improve your performance. Tracking these numbers will also help your Sweeten Account Manager make valuable strategy suggestions.
