Before you buy HVAC service software, identify what goals you set and challenges your business faces. This will aid you in matching the best software for your needs.
Do you need help with dispatching your techs or deciding the ideal service price for a job? Having a good handle on your business’s strengths and weaknesses before you start researching software is important.
Here are a few questions to consider when identifying your goals and current challenges:
- Are you happy with your current profit margin?
- Do you need to increase it to achieve goals?”
- How many hours is your team spending on weekly operations?
Do you want to decrease that time?
You’ve identified your business needs and now it’s time to compare and contrast HVAC software features. Some of the typical software features HVAC companies look for are dispatch board abilities, mobile/app capability and third party tool integration.
Use the goals and challenges you identified in the first step – then research different software options and their features that may help.
You probably have it narrowed down to a few choices at this point. Now it’s time to decide which features are the most important to your business.
Where are your pain points in your day-to-today processes? Which feature(s) could help with this challenge?
