Snowfall causes 24 million lost workdays and losses can amount to up to $30,000 for businesses annually in the US alone. Despite being seasonal the snow removal business holds colossal importance in the country. And, snow removal businesses can earn up to $1,000,000 in revenue from snow and ice removal.
Being a labor-intensive business, the industry is estimated to employ over 260,000 snow plowing professionals. And, the workforce is growing constantly now that snowfall has increased owing to climate change. So, how are snow removal companies managing this massive workforce that is mostly on the road? With the help of Cloud-based Field Service Management platforms.
Automate scheduling and dispatching: Field Promax streamlines and automates the scheduling and dispatching process by auto-generating a work order when a customer requests your services. Once a work order is created it can be monitored and managed by managers till the completion of the job. It not only improves efficiency dramatically but also improves organizational communication.
Team tracking: our advanced GPS technology furnishes managers and owners with the real-time location of their employees. And, the convenience of our mobile app aids your employees with Map view of their work orders.
Keep employees on track: an organized dashboard, that displays their “Job Status”, helps them stay on track and plan their workday better.
Eliminate revenue leak: our time-keeping feature tracks the exact time spent by your snow plowers on the job spot. In case the job requires extra time to finish, it gets added to the billable hours in the invoice. So, your business doesn’t pay for it due to erroneous billing.
Automate invoicing: generate error-free invoices within minutes, employees can get them signed from the customer at the spot, and payment can be completed very quickly. Once payment is complete, our intelligent snow removal software updates it in QuickBooks automatically.
We changed our accounting system and required a work order system to keep track of our multiple daily service calls with multiple technicians. We looked at a number of systems and found that Field Promax fits the bill. Just a great app with exemplary service!
Field Promax is great for work order management for 3 reasons: all the necessary information is available at a glance, it has enough features to cover our needs, but not to make it difficult to use and they have an extremely helpful support.
What I like about Field Promax is that all the information I need to access is on one screen. I can easily track the job progress and an invoice is just one click away.
