Change is always difficult. Most people are hesitant to change their normal processes because “that’s the way it’s always been done” or “it works for me.” Trust me, every time Google or Microsoft makes a change or my phone needs an update and something changes, I wait as long as I can and then moan and groan when it ultimately happens. Taking the leap is the hardest part, but more often than not, you end up better off than when you started.
Take a business owner for example. Every business owner wants to increase his or her efficiency and increase profits. There are many software programs and apps that can help you reach your end goal.
Let’s look at a few reasons why you should embrace HVAC software and lose the pencil and paper for good. That is a great starting point. Losing the pencil and especially the paper. No more paper invoices, trying to decipher people's hand writing or discrepancies. Since invoices are created electronically, documents never come up missing. Also, when your invoices are integrated with your business platform, all orders and details are captured in real time. You can also collect payments in the field and not have to wait 90 days to get paid.
Time is money. HVAC software can help you save both. Field service technicians no longer have to spend time fumbling through paperwork and notes that they have spilled coffee on in their van. Your office team will receive invoices in real time.
HVAC software also allows you to schedule appointments more efficiently. Your techs also have information on the history of your customers in one location. You can glance back and previous repairs and service calls. This saves you more time and as a result, money.
In today’s world of analytics, you can also access reports for yourself and staff which help you see how your business is trending and you can analyze your company’s strengths and weaknesses. It also helps you identify training needs and track individual employee contributions to your company.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to HVAC software. If you have been resisting it, it might be time to try it out. Sign up for a free trial. You have nothing to lose.
