How do I invite a contractor to enroll in Highwire?


A General Contractor can easily add a new contractor to their team by inviting the contractor to enroll in Highwire and connect to them. In many cases, clients will work with Highwire’s enrollment team to manage and expedite this process, but General Contractors can also invite contractors directly from the Contractors' view. This functionality is typically used to invite one contractor at a time, as opposed to adding a larger list of contractors for a specific project or at initial onboarding.

Invite Contractor  

 1. The first step is to click on the blue “Invite Contractor” box in the upper right-hand corner of your screen:

2. Next, a window will open where you will enter company information for the new contractor:

In this first section, you'll provide essential information, including:

  • Company name (required)
  • Company address
  • Website (required)
  • Employer Identification Number (EIN) (required if no website is included)

Once you’ve filled out the required fields click "Continue".

3. The system will automatically check if the contractor already exists in Highwire. Any potentially matching companies will be presented to you for review. This prevents duplicate entries and ensures you have all the necessary information readily available.

Review the list of potentially matching companies and select the appropriate one. If your contractor is not on the list, you can add them as a new company in Highwire. Click "Continue" to proceed.

4. In the final step, you will provide the contact information for your new contractor, which is crucial for sending the connection request.

  • If you selected an existing company in Step 3, you have the option to provide new contact information or select from a list of existing contacts.
  • If you did not find any matching companies in Step 3, simply add the new contact's information.

Click the "Invite Contractor" button to complete the process. You've successfully added your new contractor to your portfolio!

An email will be sent to the new contractor notifying them of your interest in connecting. Our team of enrollment specialists will follow up with them to ensure a smooth and successful connection.
