Many mobile Apps that are created for service companies are based on a per user fee. These fees, of $50 or more per user per month typically, create one thought in the mind of the company owner,What employees are we going to limit this to?‚ amazing but the upfront cost of the per user model instantly creates a barrier which limits the effectiveness of the technology in your company!
I am a landscaper and a co-founder of Cappsure – a mobile field reporting App for landscapers available on both Android and iOS. Cappsure allows team members to easily create maintenance service reports, proposals and document parts used – right from the field. What makes the app simple to use is the GPS map which allows you to mark locations, draw lines, take photos, draw notes and deliver proposals ready to be approved by email in minutes. The App extends utilization and organizes the capabilities of all field employees. Owners, managers, supervisors, foreman and even laborers can all use it since it was made to be extremely user friendly.
What’s more, almost every employee in your organization have photo and GPS based Apps on their phones such as Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Google Maps etc. Your employees are more than capable of using apps like Cappsure to help you strengthen your business. This brings us to the issue of the per user per month barrier. Cappsure’s fee structure is not per-user based, so you can have as many employees in your company using he App in the field as you’d like. For example I have 110 employees and I have 62 employees using the App to help us generate revenue, write proposals and report on services. This includes Irrigation Techs, Tree Crews, Maintenance Crew Leaders/Foremen, Account Managers and Supervisors. Prior to Cappsure we had only seven employees that could create field reports and proposals.
Cappsure’s fees are based on a per property per month model. So you can have as many users as you want using the App to report, document and capture low hanging fruit.
Cappsure also has the added benefit that many of the field generated reports can be automatically emailed to clients¬¨‚Ä†or archived in your office for review prior to sending to clients – from the field, directly to your customers’ inboxes!
