Whilst you might associate CleanerPlanner with window cleaners, it can do everything you need to run a carpet cleaning business.
We take a look at 7 reasons you should use CleanerPlanner as your carpet cleaning software, to not only efficiently manage your business, but also save you time, grow and offer a better service to your customers.
1) Scheduling – Get it right
CleanerPlanner can handle a high volume of jobs and gives you the ability to automate their scheduling so that you know what needs to be done and when. Whether you have jobs that need to be done every 2 weeks on a Monday or on the last Friday of every month, CleanerPlanner makes custom scheduling a breeze. We can import your customers from other software as well as from an Excel spreadsheet.
2) Invoices and Quotes – Save time
CleanerPlanner takes the manual work out of raising invoices and quotes. You can generate personalised PDF invoices and quotes which can be downloaded, printed or, by linking with your email account, emailed directly from CleanerPlanner.
3) Mobile App & Worksheets – Go paperless and eliminate unnecessary admin
CleanerPlanner allows you to go paperless. You can create and assign worksheets (to multiple users if required – more on that to come) and then access them remotely using the CleanerPlanner mobile app (available for both Apple and Android devices). You, or your employees, can then update progress on the move, marking what’s been done, missed and paid. And there’s no need to worry about having 3G signal or WiFi, the app works perfectly offline – you simply sync your changes at the end of the day. This carpet cleaning software feature eliminates admin time spent updating paper records or an Excel spreadsheet at the end of the day, and makes organising work for multiple staff and vehicles child’s play.
4) Multiple Users – Remotely organise your staff
As mentioned, CleanerPlanner allows multiple users to access the software at any given time, and as it’s cloud-based software, from anywhere with an internet connection. That means your staff can access worksheets from the mobile app, know exactly what they need to be doing and when, and can do more of their own admin, subject to your review and approval of course.
5) GoCardless and Stripe – Control your payments
CleanerPlanner integrates with GoCardless – a feature which puts you in control of your payments. You can process direct debit payments, in bulk, directly from CleanerPlanner each time the work has been completed. The system automatically updates who has paid, further reducing time spent chasing for payments, matching payments to customers and then manually updating records. The Stripe integration also allows you to take card payments, and the combination of the two allows you to not only maximise your chances of being paid when you want, but offers the most convenient payment options to your customers.
6) Bulk SMS Messaging – Communicate more easily
The bulk text messaging feature allows you to quickly communicate with your customers. You are likely to have jobs where customers need to informed you’re coming so that you can gain access. CleanerPlanner allows you to send out text message alerts in bulk and schedule them to go out at a later time and date, meaning you not only save time but you can set the alert to go at the right time – without it encroaching on your evening.
If you are a franchised business, are part of a franchised business or are looking to go franchised, CleanerPlanner has been designed to cater for you. Multiple franchisee accounts can be seamlessly linked to your master account. Your franchisees manage their own separate accounts, but you have easy access when you need to know what they are doing and review their performance.
