We have simple, in-depth, and deep-dive answers to that question. Here’s what all those answers have in common: painting software. It’s a low-cost way to differentiate yourself by streamlining both internal and customer-facing tasks.
We produce JobNimbus, a popular option for residential and commercial painters, so let us give you the answer you’re looking for: whether that’s a quick push in the right direction, a more comprehensive list of features to look for in a painting software tool, or the in-depth usability features a power-user wants to know about.
Looking for Painting Software? Let Us Paint You a Picture…
You probably parse out your big painting jobs according to room size and other factors, so let’s put this in terms of a few different rooms: the small entryway, the enormous family room, and the intricate kitchen.

The Mid-sized Family Room Answer

The Intricate Kitchen Answer
If you’re still reading this, you’re in it for that room people are going to spend a lot of time in, where the paint job needs to be precise if not perfect. To put this another way, you want to know what really makes JobNimbus sing, what takes it from a convenient tool to a solution your business can’t thrive without.
We feel this comes down to customization. When poorly designed, software customization can become a potential hindrance. But we built JobNimbus much more intelligently than that. By scaling everything back to its simplest form and putting you in the driver’s seat, all customizations become manageable. You won’t have to wait on us to make changes for you since it’s all there in your administrative settings. You also won’t find yourself without a roadmap for how to grow your JobNimbus use over time.
Because you can scale up features whenever you decide to without needing a new account or service level, JobNimbus truly grows with you. That’s a long-term painting software solution you can feel confident committing to!
