Running a handy-man franchise is hard work. Fortunately, software has been developed with franchise systems in mind…
And yet, despite the proven value this software has for service-based franchises’ operational efficiency, some owners are still reluctant to embrace virtual franchise solutions for a company whose work is done in the real world.
In today’s post, the FranchiseSoft team describes four ways that franchise management software benefits handy-man franchises. Read on to explore the value our scheduling, invoicing, communications, and reporting software holds for your franchise, and find out how to book a free consultation.
Save Enormous Blocks Of Time On Scheduling
If your handy-man franchise is large enough to employ a number of technicians, you’re probably familiar with the hassle involved in small-business HR management. Without the right franchise solutions, scheduling can be a nightmare – how much time do you spend cross-referencing staff calendars and double-checking with employees about their availability? More importantly, how much of that time is profitable?
FranchiseSoft allows handy-many franchise owners to focus on growing their business, rather than spending their limited time on this kind of administrative busywork. Cloud-based and mobile-friendly, our software allows you to create and assign new jobs on the go, from any device. From there, you can easily notify franchisees, customers, employees, and field reps about changes to the job or location via text or email. Moreover, instead of racing back and forth to the office or getting caught in a web of confirmation calls, you can see your entire roster’s availability at a glance with our calendar tool.
Increase The Productivity Of Your Handymen (And The Quality Of Their Work!)
Handy-man companies that implement our franchise solutions generally notice an uptick in productivity as a direct result of the time their staff can save in the field with streamlined invoicing, scheduling, and work confirmation.
But FranchiseSoft also creates an element of accountability via detailed customer service reporting, which helps motivate your team to do their best. Furthermore, our software gives workers the ability to upload pictures of repairs and other jobs-well-done to improve quality control, which lets fellow employees double-check the work of new employees from any device.
Boost The Communications And Morale Of Your Team
Every great handy-man franchise owes at least part of its success to the strength of the team dynamic, and this depends on high morale and open communication. Our franchise solutions enable both of these organizational characteristics, giving your workforce unprecedented levels of connectivity to eliminate stress and improve job performances. Whether you need to wish a coworker well, inform them of a change of location, or ask for advice on a particularly tricky repair, our messaging system allows easy communications between all parties. Our system also helps to avoid miscommunications by compiling all customer communications in a single place.
Improve Your Franchise’s Legal Compliance
Operating a successful handy-man franchise also means complying with any labor laws that apply in your area. As an owner, you will be responsible for protecting employees against over-scheduling. Moreover, some states have minimum age requirements for certain tools, machinery, or equipment that may be required in your work. FranchiseSoft allows you to track your hiring and scheduling activities to protect against any potential problems.
