From a Successful Carpet Care Business

We looked at 22 products, deeply evaluated 4 (including custom built SQL database), and chose Scheduling Manager 4 years ago. They made substantial modifications for us and continue to fine tune it as our needs dictate. The application saves us time and money by automating a plethora of processes – they are quite adept at developing innovative solutions that have driven changes to our internal protocols. We really like the electronic communication of job schedules, reports and feedback. It is truly effortless for our clients to rate and comment on us. We use the SMS capability to send daily job schedule information to our technicians. The client and employee reporting gives us great information to price future jobs, ferret out an issue or review employees.A truly outstanding application.”
