In recent weeks, as concern over the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grow, more and more companies are asking their employees to start working from home. Even before the outbreak, the business world today is embracing and shifting towards more remote-work positions. While roofing is a physical-labor job that requires you to show up to your job site, there is still a lot of behind-the-scenes work that can be accomplished off-site.
While some roofing businesses choose to postpone their work, others still have work that needs to get done. It’s a great time to take advantage of strategies for working remotely and being as productive as you would be while working out in the field. The nice thing is, JobNimbus allows you to work effectively from wherever you are and provides multiple features that will make working from home much easier and convenient for you.
Here are a few JobNimbus integrations that are definitely worth looking into:
With the EagleView integration in JobNimbus, you no longer need to measure roofs manually. EagleView lets you measure roofs from a distance. EagleView lets you take aerial roof measurements for your jobs and easily order measurement reports in just a few clicks. It also ties your measurements into your job folder in JobNimbus.
If you don’t have an account with EagleView, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help get you set up. If you already have an EagleView account, you can easily connect it following these instructions.
Tired of waiting to collect paper checks? JobNimbus Payments feature lets you collect payments quickly. It gets you paid faster and in a way that is easier for both you and your customers. This feature is as simple as sending an invoice. Customers will see a “Make a Payment” button on their invoice that they can click on and submit payments with either a credit/debit card or e-check. This will help create more efficiency in your workplace in the comfort of your own home.
If you’re not set up to take payments in JobNimbus, send us an email and we’ll help walk you through setup and payment training.
