Benefits of Using Scheduling Manager for Your Handyman Business
Manage your time effectively
Efficient and flexible scheduling
We know that handyman business software needs to have flexible scheduling options. Some customers may need a one-time service while others may want regularly scheduled maintenance services. For example, a home owner may need some exterior work done before selling the house, while another owner may want someone to come seasonally to maintain the house.
There are over 9 different calendars you can view, edit, and complete your jobs from. Simply drag-and-drop on the calendar screen to change a job schedule or assign a different employee to a job.
Effective employee management
Our SM-Mobile App tracks your employees and keep records of arrival and departure times for every job site. SM-Mobile’s GPS feature records the location of each employee every few minutes. An employee checks in for the job with the mobile app and the time and GPS location is recorded automatically. This way you can verify the times your employees are actually on-site and bill your customers accordingly.
Scheduling Manager’s Mapping and Route Optimization feature displays the best directions and routes for all your scheduled jobs and automatically reorders jobs to minimize driving distance. This helps you to save time and money and ensures that your employees are always on time, leading to more satisfied customers.
