How Did They Do It? Roper Electrical


In an exclusive interview with Syscon, Rob Roper, the owner of Roper Electrical, shared insights into his company’s journey and the factors driving its success.

His venture into the electrical business began with his acceptance into the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) after high school. Following a decade of experience working for other contractors, he took the bold step to establish his own venture, Roper Electrical.

He attributes his company’s success to his dedicated team. By recruiting individuals who share his vision and values, he ensures that the right people are in the right roles, contributing to the company’s growth and reputation.

Financial challenges, particularly in managing cash flow while awaiting payments, were significant hurdles for Roper Electrical. Implementing better financial tracking systems, such as Sage 100 Contractor, has allowed the company to navigate these challenges more effectively, paving the way for future success.

Transitioning from traditional pen-and-paper methods to utilizing technology was a significant shift for Roper Electrical. However, he recognized the transformative potential of technology, especially after integrating Syscon’s products and services into his business operations. The Syscon FIT System, in particular, has streamlined processes, enhancing efficiency and productivity.

The highlight of his day is any moment spent with his family, underscoring the importance of work-life balance and personal fulfillment beyond business success.

As Roper Electrical continues to grow and evolve, he remains committed to delivering excellence in electrical services while prioritizing the well-being of his team and customers. With a keen eye on innovation and a solid foundation built on integrity and expertise, Roper Electrical is poised for even greater achievements in the future. -RB
