How Plumbing Software Can Help You Find and Keep Clients

Great software can have a profound effect on your company. In fact, many business owners find that it replaces at least one full-time administrative team member, eliminates the need for many routine tasks, and saves the business time and money.

What's more, software will help you improve your online presence and improve communication between your employees, so they can offer your customers a better service. Additionally, many of your customers will appreciate the modern features, such as simple online payments via an email link.

Generating More Leads On Your Website 

No matter how good your service is, you won't find new customers if you're not putting yourself out there. Nowadays, a well-designed website that shows up when people search for plumbing services in your area is a must. But how do you get started, and how can you know whether your site is performing well? Home service software can help because it includes a "website audit" feature.

With this tool, you can see whether your site is optimized and, if not, what you still need to improve. You can then either make the necessary changes yourself, or you can ask us at ServiceBox to help. We have many years of experience designing intuitive websites that are easy to navigate and search engine optimized, so we can help you become visible to local customers searching for plumbers online.

Building Up an Online Network 

Aside from your website, your social media profiles can draw a lot of attention to your company. Unfortunately, most small business owners don't know how to best use sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok. To make the most of these networks, you have to post new, engaging content every day and interact with your followers and others in your industry.

This can take up a lot of time, especially if you're on more than one platform. Good home service software helps you automate your profiles. For example, you can write out all the weekly posts in advance and schedule them, so they are posted at strategic times. This means you don't have to interrupt your day to post on social media, saving you time and allowing you to focus on the important things.

Providing a Higher Level of Customer Service 

Once you have a great website and a lot of engaged social media followers, you'll frequently get new leads. The goal then shifts to turning them into recurring customers and getting them to refer their friends. This will only happen if you and your team provide people with a superior experience every time you visit. Home service software can help you because it stores all your customers' data on one easy-to-use platform.

Whenever one of your employees speaks to the customer, they can write a note about what was discussed. That way, everyone in your team remains up to date, and even if someone different visits the customer the next time, they'll know exactly what work has been performed and what the person needs. As a result, your customers will be delighted with the high level of service you provide, and they will be happy to use you again in the future.

Providing Modern and Advanced Features 

In the past, people were used to speaking to businesses on the phone and paying in cash, but more and more customers now demand online services, such as an easy booking system, text message reminders, and a platform where they can pay online. If you want to attract a wide range of people, including those from younger generations, you can use software to provide these modern technological features.

For example, ServiceBox allows you to send your customers invoices via email. These messages include an easy payment link, which takes customers directly to a page where they can pay you. Such features facilitate communication and make rapid payment more likely.

Reducing Your Operation Costs and Focusing on What's Important 

When you use software, you can stop doing various admin tasks, which were previously taking time away from what you're good at: providing your customers with excellent plumbing services. This makes your business more efficient and reduces your operating costs.

Because you'll be advertising more effectively and spending less time on unnecessary tasks, your profits will skyrocket, which means that you can expand your business and hire new employees. Over time, this will benefit your customers because you'll be able to provide them with a more comprehensive service. For example, you might hire specialists who can service boilers or HVAC systems, or you can expand your emergency repair services.
