Using business software that’s been designed for pest management businesses takes the strain out of everyday operational tasks.
With fuel costs soaring and labour shortages continuing, maintaining a healthy profit margin can seem like a difficult task. For many pest management business owners, generating top-line growth has become a challenge over the last year. For those not yet using pest control software, keeping operations efficient has become increasingly burdensome. Acquiring the right technology can make a difference. For example, introducing automation can help you successfully manage services, routing, scheduling, and invoicing.
If your technicians are not already equipped with mobile devices, you are losing money; it’s as simple as that. Nowadays, customers expect real-time service updates and clear communication with your staff. Using a mobile app that is specially designed to manage pest control services adds many benefits. Among them are the ability to record detailed information about pest activity, manage work orders remotely, scan barcoded stations, and even take payments on the spot. Not only does this make managing services more efficient, but it also gives a more professional impression to your customers and increases their satisfaction with your business.
With fuel prices on the rise, vehicle costs can impact your bottom line. There are significant changes you can make right now to ensure you keep your profits healthy. Routing technology can help you optimise routes, increase the number of services carried out in one area and reduce time spent behind the wheel, and even increase productivity. Software is undoubtedly the most cost-effective way to build intelligent routes. Not only can it do the job in a matter of minutes, compared to the hours of manual labour it would require, but it also allows you to eliminate costly human error.
Managing technicians’ schedules can be a nightmare, especially when business starts to pick up in the spring months. When you factor in the current labour shortage, this can turn into a catastrophe. Making sure you can easily make changes to schedules on the fly will save you a lot of hassle and will make things easier for your office staff. ServSuite by FieldRoutes has drag-and-drop technology that enables users to make changes to technicians’ appointments easily, ensuring your customers get their service whatever happens.
Does your business spend hours invoicing customers each month? This task doesn’t need to be arduous. Customising bills and invoices to meet your customers’ needs without adding hours of labour for your office staff is more straightforward than it sounds. When you use software to run your business, you can quickly generate, manage, and track invoices from one place. Not only does this save you time, but it also helps ensure you get paid on time, every time.
