What do you do when the season is in full swing? When hailstones the size of grapefruit are coming out of the sky, or when hurricanes are combining to rain down their angry winds and weather, what is the best course of action?
Pack your bags, load up the truck… and go to the beach.
No, it’s not insane, it’s possible! All that concern about how you don’t know what’s going on in your business can be solved with technology. With the progress in technology, the way we run our business is changing.
There are newer, smarter CRM roofing solutions thanks to tech advances
It really isn’t all that long ago, that if someone wanted to know what was going on at the office, there were two choices. You could either call on a payphone, or drive back to the office.
Those were the choices, take ’em or leave ’em.
Remember pagers? The kids called them “beepers.” You ran around, and if there was something important going on, the office dialed your number and left a phone number to call. If it was really important, they would follow the phone number with “911”.
It got a little better when we started carrying around bag phones and brick phones. People could get in touch almost any time. It was a double edged sword. That was the beginning of “the leash.”
Now, we have the advent of smartphones. Much like the advancement in office communication and talking on phones, we have the ability to move from simple filing cabinets, to full service software. Your phone, while a useful way to keep in touch, doesn’t have to be “a leash” to the office anymore. It isn’t your lifeline to understanding your business.
With a CRM roofing solution, like JobNimbus, you are able to keep an eye on what is happening in sales and production while seeing what is closing and billed.
You can literally watch the money come in, in real time. Your entire office, is now in the palm of your hands.
You can ask and immediately get answers to the important questions with software. You can see a 500 ft view. For instance, “how many jobs are in the queue?” or, “how many tasks do I have on my list today?”
You also have the option to get as granular as you’d like. You can run reports on how many residential flat roofs are scheduled to start next week. There are powerful tools embedded in a full-featured CRM roofing solution to help you get things done faster, easier, and better than ever.
It is time to take back your life and enjoy the free time that advances in technology have given us. Use your phone to call friends or family, and go enjoy some of your summer. Make bigger plans this year. You can manage it, really you can.
