How can the cloud improve your bottom line?

The success of your business depends on its ability to make a profit. As such, cloud-based software is being used by companies of all size to help them become more lucrative. Not least, because it offers a cost-effective way to access enterprise-level technology. But, with a plethora of options to choose from, how do you pick a cloud provider that meets your needs?

Here are some of the things your software should do if you want to boost your bottom line:

Reduce your admin burden

Too many businesses spend too much of their valuable time on repetitive and mundane tasks. However, with the right software, you’ll benefit from the simplification, standardisation, and streamlining of business processes; with information converted to digital and synced with your back office systems. So you get rid of unnecessary admin and paperwork. Even better, look for software does this in real time, so everyone has the info they require and there is no need for duplication. The less time you spend on admin, the more time your team can spend on those tasks that make you money.

Complete jobs quicker

Invest in software that helps you to get the job done, invoice, and move on to the next one as quickly as possible. Look for job tracking software, route optimiser software, scheduling software and mobile worker apps. Basically, everything you need to provide a fast and seamless service.

Speed up invoicing

Deploy software that lets you generate invoices as soon as possible. For example, our software enables staff to mark jobs as complete from their mobile devices, and automatically creates invoices to be sent to your back office team for checking and issuing. So there’s no delay between completing tasks and invoicing.

Manage different types of invoices

You want software that lets you allocate different rates for each customer. At the same time, you want to be able to create and manage batch invoices all at the same time; significantly speeding up your invoicing. You should also be able to price up all completed jobs and park them until you are ready to process; saving you valuable hours every month. For ongoing contracts, look for a frequent billing feature that lets you set up a regular invoicing schedule for fixed amounts at set intervals. And, if you have customers who require consolidated invoices, choose software that lets you add, swap, and remove items and details as needed. So you always keep your customers happy while looking after your bottom line.

Integrate with your other business-critical software

Today, it’s vital that your systems talk to each other if you want to streamline processes and become more efficient. At Service Geeni we help you do this. For example, when you combine our invoicing software with our Mobile Worker app, timesheets and parts are automatically calculated against the job. And, once done, this data is then shared with your existing accounts software.

Reduce the hassle of unnecessary jobs

Choose software that helps you to become more proactive. For example, our Preventative Maintenance (PPM) module can reduce the burden of maintenance by helping you to manage this process more efficiently. In the long run, saving you both time and money.

Cost jobs more accurately

To boost your profitability, you need software that lets you quote more accurately, and keep track of costs. You want to be able to see and review the value of each customer based on their particular rates, and make informed decisions about where you need to adapt these fees. 

Provide comprehensive management information

You need smart software that provides at-a-glance reports and analytics using easy to understand dashboards. With a wide range of performance metrics, access to such insightful business data can lead to actionable insights and improved decision making.

Ultimately, by boosting efficiency and contributing to improved decision making across all levels of your business, Service Geeni software can help raise your bottom line and drive both profitability and growth.
