Are you or someone you know an educator in the service trade industry? Looking for advanced ways to engage with students on how to run a successful service business can be a challenge. Coolfront Education is one way we can give back to the industry, by equipping students with hands-on experience using a cutting edge, field service app used by thousands of full-time technicians and office administrators every day.
In one of our latest blog posts, we examined a recent report for roughly 115,000 Jobs To Fill in the HVAC industry alone by 2022. The service industry is shifting and both customers and technicians are increasing demand for mobile technology solutions. Coolfront offers a fully-managed flat rate pricing repair database students can learn in the classroom and use in the field to answer their customers’ #1 question, ‘how much?’ The web- based app is used by technicians, office staff and administrators alike. By creating digital invoices and activating integrations like QuickBooks and Google Calendar, businesses can eliminate paperwork and run themselves like a finely tuned machine. It’s tailored to help contractors price their service repairs at a consistent, profitable rate on every service call.
