You might still be on the fence regarding whether or not to switch to our estimating software. Learn more by exploring some of the most common questions about software for estimating:
When is the best time to switch to plumbing management software?
It’s not always easy to know the best time to add a web-based estimating platform. If you’re not sure whether making the switch right now is a good choice, here are some questions you can ask yourself:
Do you provide high-quality estimates?
Preparing attractive quotes that “wow” your customers is always a good idea. But estimates should be easy to draft, have a professional look and offer thorough service and pricing details. They should also be easy to convert into polished PDFs that you can quickly send to your customers. If you can’t create high-quality, professional-looking quotes in minutes, it might be a good time to make the switch.
Are spreadsheets becoming unmanageable?
If your business is expanding and spreadsheets no longer do the trick when it comes to storing customer information, job histories, scheduling details and invoice data, it might be time to upgrade. Our estimating platform provides an all-in-one solution for storing every aspect of your jobs in an easy-to-navigate system. You can retrieve important job details in seconds, convert estimates and work orders into invoices in minutes, schedule your techs with a few simple clicks and update work orders and change orders from any location via your smartphone.
Is miscommunication a problem?
Miscommunication between your management team and field crew can impact your business’s ability to complete jobs in a timely fashion. If wires get crossed and as a result, a tech arrives at a job site late, your business’s reputation could be on the line. Our platform makes it easy to streamline communication between your management and techs to minimize these mistakes. Additionally, your techs can see their schedules from anywhere with an Internet connection to ensure they get to their field service jobs on time.
Switching to a new software solution can be daunting – and we know you have questions. Here are some of the most common queries we get about our service management software:
Web-based estimating software can help services like yours reduce the amount of time and effort spent creating quotes for customers. Once you receive an inquiry, you can quickly draft and send an estimate that details the services you can provide in a professional-looking PDF.
It’s commonly believed that creating a polished estimate requires a lot of time. This could be true if you draft one from scratch for each inquiry. But our platform makes it easy for you to fill in line items for plumbing service and pricing details so that you can quickly convert your quote into a PDF and send it to your client via email in a few seconds.
We make the process of creating your own estimate simple. Gone are the days of creating separate quotes in a document editor, drafting individual quotes via email or writing them out on a slip of paper. Our web-based estimating platform lets you quickly create quotes that include customer details, services, prices, job site information and more with just a few clicks.
You’ll want to include in each estimate the details that can help your customer make the most informed decision regarding the plumbing services you’ll provide. Here are some details to include:
- Your branding information
Including your company’s name, address, online presence, contact information, logo and branding information can make your company more recognizable and trustworthy in the eyes of your customers.
- A job number
Every quote should have a unique job number. This is important for tracking your customers’ jobs, retrieving their preferences and converting estimates into invoices.
- Your customers’ details and job locations
Listing each customer’s contact and job site information can make it easier for you to retrieve for invoicing. Your management and field crews can also access this information to ensure they complete their jobs.
- A detailed listing of services and costs
You’ll want to list every service and associated cost your client can expect, including taxes. Your customer should never be surprised by any major unexpected costs when they receive their invoice. Creating detailed estimates can build trust with your customers and even help you snag new customers through word of mouth.
A thorough and accurate estimate can make a fantastic impression on your customers. Our platform ensures creating quotes is always fast and simple. The quicker you’re able to get your quote to your client, the sooner you can get started on a new job, whether you’re dealing with a pipe burst or laundry line clog.
One fantastic feature of our estimating platform is the ability to make quick adjustments if your customer is interested in an add-on or upgrade. Whether you or your techs want to cross-sell or upsell, you can get it done via our Pricebooks feature. Your new sale can be updated in a few minutes.
