When hail starts to fall from the sky in the spring, roofing contractors get excited.
We aren’t talking about your run of the mill hail here. These things could hold their own in a fight with a softball and they can put on a great fireworks show with car windows in open-air parking lots.
Midwest hailstorms can hit with such speed and force that they have been known to punch holes in metal roofs. It is really a sight to see.
This video to give you an idea of what kind of force Mother Nature can be.
It is after these events that it can be easy for a roofing contractor to get behind, lost in his/her work, or even overwhelmed with the processes. This is a good chance to start to look at roofing software.
Hail doesn’t strike the same places every year. It sometimes shows up in some rather unexpected places. Heck, just a few years ago Phoenix was hit by a rather substantial amount of hail. Who would’ve thought?
When roofing contractors jump into action, they need a great way to track the sudden increase in business. That is where roofing software comes in. It allows you to track a mobile workforce.
Another great benefit is that you are better able to track your customers. Not that you will be replacing their roof again in a year, but a few years down the road, it could be a great opportunity to do some maintenance.
All of the things traditionally done on a job board in the office are now able to be done with a CRM that is simple and designed specifically for service oriented companies.
Now is the time to find out if roofing software is right for you. It makes it a little more challenging to figure out in the middle of a storm that is dropping huge balls of ice on your head.
