Customer database and service contracts
Clear communication between customers and businesses is a foundation of the pest control industry. Commusoft’s customer database for pest control organizes all of your customer data, job histories, and contacts in one place. Your team will never again feel the sting of being unprepared. Technicians will walk into jobs knowledgeable about the issue, what has been done in the past, and ready to provide helpful solutions. Plus, you can modify the database to accommodate unique pest control needs, such as whether or not certain chemicals may be used on a property or if the customer is comfortable with technicians cutting into drywall to remove critters.
When it comes to safety, it’s important to have a hive mind-set. Traveling with dangerous chemicals means your technicians need to be extra safe on the road. With real-time vehicle tracking, you’ll always know where your technicians are, where they’ve been, and how they’re driving. Our GPS leaderboard and driver detail reports will further emphasize safe driving practices, elongating the life of your company’s fleet. With this combination of real time data and historical driver trip records, you'll never again wonder where any of your technicians are in the field.
Parts and inventory management
Many pest control businesses deal with a wide variety of vermin; from rats to termites, ensuring that the right parts for the right job are on hand is essential. Commusoft’s pest control software streamlines and organizes parts ordering and management for both your office and technicians. With real-time inventory and automatic reordering for regularly-used parts, you can stay on top of, and avoid, missing items or excessive stockpiling. This robust system reduces the risk of your technicians arriving without the specific wand sprayer or chemicals for the job.
On-site questionnaires for technicians and applicators
Accountability and making sure that safety measures are being met are critical for providing world-class customer service. By tailoring required questions for your field staff to complete, both when they arrive on the job, and before they leave, your pest control business can maximize compliance and ensure proper record taking. Commusoft’s field questionnaires are entirely customizable. They can support a variety of questions such as whether technicians or applicators have the right personal protective equipment (PPE), can prompt them to double check that pets, children, and customers are away from the area when working with chemicals, and can ask if residents and property managers have been informed of the location of any traps.
Booking and scheduling
In a highly reactive industry, a stress free booking process, and an easy-to-read schedule saves valuable time. When your business is teeming with new jobs and last-minute cancellations, you can seamlessly pivot and keep operations running smoothly without burdening your office team. Commusoft’s intelligent scheduling, service windows, job status updates, and automated communications all ensure that the right technicians or applicators are being sent to the right jobs, and that customers are always in the loop.
