Manhattan Beach, CA (PressExposure) October 04, 2012 -- Managing a business was never so easy for plumbers. Grow Plumbing- the internet marketing company dedicated to help plumbers generate leads and land plumbing projects has now introduced the Plumbing Manager.
This web based, iPhone and Android app is designed to automate a plumber's business and takes care of everything including tracking the workflow of a phone call, managing plumbing estimates, jobs, and handling payments.
Some of the features of the app include:
- It gives a consolidated view of the company- across branches and offices
- LIVE MAP view of the entire team
- View and manage team schedules in real time
- Assign jobs directly to teams via phone
- Send invoices to customers and collect payment
- Prepare real time reports
The way it works is pretty simple. When a customer calls, the attendant who answers the call puts it in the attendant dashboard and enters the ZIP code of the person calling. And if the customer is an existing one, the dashboard is pre-populated with the required information. Using a geo locator the attendant is able to locate the area of the person and identify the technicians closest to the customer. He then fixes an appointment with the customer and enters this into the technician's schedule. This schedule goes to the plumber through an iPhone or Android device and the confirmation of this is sent to the customer. The technician gets direction to the location through Google Maps, completes the job, works out the invoice and sends an email (and the receipt) to the customer. Once the job's done, the technician becomes available for his next assignment and this is indicated by color codes. The management can track performance of technicians, track resources that generate returns, check inventory and invoice etc.
"Even with its sophisticated mechanism, the app is easy to use and does not need a software or training. You don't have to customize- it's a one click download and install," says the spokesperson at Grow Plumbing.
