10 Benefits of Web Based Pest Control Software

mobile pest control technology by Pocomos / October 2, 2015

Any highly specialized field requires highly specialized software that understands the nature of the business. The benefits of web based pest control software may exceed what you might expect from a typical business management software. Pest control software focuses specifically on the desires and demands of your individual company to ensure you are meeting your potential and exceeding customer expectations.

1. Complete Business Automation

Perhaps the number one benefit of web-based pest control is complete business automation. While other systems may offer basic business automation for invoicing and appointments, only a specific pest control software is designed with features just for pest control, such as pesticide use and pest activity tracking.

2. Appointment Scheduling

Eliminate customers waiting on hold to schedule an appointment. Web-based software allows customers to schedule their own appointments, and then automatically plan a technician's route, and crosscheck employee schedules and availability.

3. Eliminate IT Problems

When running a business, IT is part of the package, but it does not have to be a sore spot anymore. Web-based software does not require any internal resources to manage, no hardware maintenance, no manual backups, server space issues, or upgrades to deal with. The software company deals with all of that. All you have to do is login and use the service and your IT staff (if you still have one) can focus on other projects like marketing, social media, and positioning your company to be successful.

4. Tracking Capabilities

Pest control software will track anything and everything used in the pest control industry. Keep track of your equipment and technicians while tracking your biggest revenue sources, use of chemicals and track targeted pests in the area.

5. Mobile Accessibility

Having all your vital company data available anywhere you are is invaluable to a business owner. Web-based software allows you to work from a tablets or smartphone in the office or on the go.

6. Rules and Regulations

In some areas, it is required that pest control companies monitor pesticide usage or chemical levels, web-based pest control software is the best way to follow these legal requirements and have the information up-to-date and on hand at all times.

7. No Downloads

Using web-based pest control software means you no longer need to download a space-hogging software on every computer in the office, nor do your computers have to be networked to a main server. Just open your browser on any desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone and get to work instantly.

8. Billing & Invoicing

Pest control software can automate customer payments, bills, and invoices in order to cut costs, minimize human error, and make sure you are paid promptly without having to call customers about their bills each month.

9. Security

The firmware, firewalls, and internet security built up around your cloud-based software is likely more stable and secure than the anti-virus software on your desktop computer. Keep customer information and business financials safe and secure online. This is also the best way to protect your most vital information from being destroyed in a flood, fire, or other disaster.

10. Space

As your business grows, so will the information you have. Web-based software keeps up with your demand for more space. No more purchasing servers or a backup hard drive. Enjoy the convenience of customer information, store information, and account histories in one place.
