Keeping an HVAC company running smoothly involves many moving parts. As well as the administration and “desk work” like finances and management, there is also the practical aspect to take care of, from labourers, equipment and logistics to the actual work being done itself. If you are in the HVAC industry, you may be looking for easier ways to boost productivity and efficiency, in one or more areas of function within your company. Many (if not all) of the processes involved in an HVAC business can be streamlined using the right technology.
HVAC software has been specially designed to help companies increase efficiency overall. Whether it is appointment scheduling, project organisation, finances, HR, paperwork or labour, HVAC software such as Eworks Manager can organise, prioritise and optimise your workflow. Here’s just some of the ways your company can benefit from using this type of software:
HVAC software such as Eworks Manager offers management tools like inventory management. Inventory management allows you to track stock from the warehouse, during delivery, all the way to installation. This will enable you to automate stock control, track deliveries and oversee the sale of goods.
In addition to this, you can easily establish the best sellers and the stock that just depreciates in the warehouse or storage facility, this will help you avoid overstocking an item that is not being ordered. You can also avoid running out of stock by placing orders with suppliers when you see an item is running low.
For your on-the-go staff, Eworks Manager’s GPS tracking capabilities can help in a variety of ways. In combination with other features, you will be able to better schedule appointments, choose the best routes and projects for your technicians, streamline your dispatching process, improve accounting and invoice related tasks, better manage your employees and customers, and better process your team’s payment.
The GPS tracking itself can help pinpoint the exact location of your field team, and dispatch them to the nearest job using the optimal route. This can help tremendously with emergency projects and schedule adjustments which can pop up several times a day. When combined with the inventory management feature, the GPS can help keep track of which team possesses the right tools and equipment for the right project. If you’ve ever sent an ill-equipped technician to a job site, you know the delays and headaches that may occur. With Eworks Manager, these problems are eliminated.
Eworks Manager also allows you to track the performance of your technicians. This works optimally when in tandem with Eworks Manager’s Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software. By combining database information regarding both your employees and customers, you are able to track which team performs best, has the most positive customer satisfaction reviews and rehires, and performs best on other metrics such as fuel usage, driver behaviour (tickets, fast driving, rough braking), and more.
HVAC software can help take your business to the next level by streamlining essential operations, reducing resource wastage, and improving the performance of your field staff. It can also improve other areas of your business such as accounting, sales, invoicing and other administrative tasks. Eworks Manager is a modular software that can be customised to fit your particular business needs, allowing you to pick and choose the features you want. We offer a free 14 day trial for our software, with full support included. Our sales team will be happy to answer any of your questions.
