Contractors might spend most of their days in the real world rather than the virtual, examining materials, overseeing construction, and performing other duties for clients. However, many effective and useful online tools exist to help contractors do their jobs better, faster, and more effectively. The iRoofing app is just one of them.
If you want to take advantage of the iRoofing app for your benefit and for your customers’, follow these tips to get the most out of this technology.
Keep Your Directory Listing Up To Date
Although the app itself offers plenty of advantages, membership with iRoofing comes with other perks, too. You get a listing in the iRoofing directory, for instance, so customers can find your business when they conduct a search.
Keep your listing up to date and accurate so you get as much benefit from this feature as possible. It’s also important to customize your app dashboard. Add your logo and contact information so the entire dashboard is branded for your business.
Give Your Customers a Sneak Peak
Your clients don’t have to imagine how a particular roofing material will look on their homes. You can take a photograph, upload it to the iRoofing app, and show your clients simulations of how their homes will appear. They can then make informed, educated decisions — and you can get to work.
With the iRoofing roof simulator, you don’t even have to meet with your customers in person. If a client tells you he or she is having second thoughts about a chosen material, you can send him or her alternative images to choose from without taking a chunk of time out of your day.
Gain Accurate (But Less Dangerous) Measurements
iRoofing comes with a measurement module that uses powerful satellite imagery to measure a roof’s dimensions, pitch, and other features. That way, you don’t have to get on the roof physically to prepare and issue estimates. Plus, if the weather doesn’t cooperate during this phase, you can still get the measurements.
Carry Your Contract With You
Paperwork can prove frustrating and limiting for contractors. With the iRoofing app, you can get rid of actual paper for good. Just load your contracts, releases, and other documents into the dashboard, then have your clients sign them on the tablet itself. You’ll always be ready to close the sale even if you don’t have your briefcase full of paper contracts at hand.
Create a Catalog
Potential customers want references and evidence from previous jobs you’ve completed. With iRoofing, you don’t have to carry around a bulky portfolio. Just create a professional, polished catalog within the app so you can show off your work at a moment’s notice.
The iRoofing app is one of the most powerful tools a roofing contractor can keep in his or her arsenal. Of course, you still need to stay up to date with your continuing education courses. If you’re behind, start your course now with PDH Contractors Academy.
