Nicholas Hurd & Litening Software

nickwithABCNEW-180I’ve been working with contractors since 1977 when I got my first construction client. They were a large plastering and drywall company in San Jose, California.

The software I sold them and 352 other contractors over the next few years was a complete contractors package including estimating, job cost and all the accounting functions a contractor needed. I sold that company in 1993.

In 1994 I started Litening Software. One of the things I’d found when talking with many contractors is that many of them were using QuickBooks® for their accounting. I figured out how to integrate an estimating system into QuickBooks job cost function. The rest, as they say, is history.

I have 3 books you can find on Amazon:

  • Secrets to Making Money On Every Job
  • Estimating With Excel
  • Reputation Marketing

Many years later, as I’m writing this, we have over 4,200 users. You can read and listen to testimonials here.
