Keeping customers, jobs and scheduling organized and coordinated can be difficult to maintain for many small businesses. Many start with a home-brew combination of an excel file with Google Calendar. This is hard to maintain consistently, difficult or impossible to track the information that is important to your businesses, and does not offer easy access to your team.
Our scheduling web application is designed for small businesses that need a good way to organize their customers, jobs and scheduling in a cloud-based web application. We customize each application to suit your specific business needs.
If your services are route based, where your employees are performing work at the customer's home or business, then our system would be set up to use appointments. This allows you to set an appointment date, time and time windows. Businesses that would likely use this system would include appliance repair service, carpet cleaning service, pest control service, etc.
If your services are shop based, where your customers bring jobs to you or create products in your shop, then we would use tasks. Tasks include a start date, date due. Businesses that would likely use a task-based scheduling system would include machine shop, auto mechanic, bicycle repair shop, etc.
In either case, one or multiple employees can be assigned to a task or appointment.
What is a Web Application?
A web application is not the type of "app" that you would download to your phone. This runs over the web, so you can use any modern web browser on your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. The application is "responsive," so the content will scale and adjust to properly fit any screen size.
What does it cost?
The cost depends on the amount of customization needed for your business. We can truly create just about anything to suit your business. Our base package with minimal customization starts at $450. The hosting for the application is then maintained at a cost of $40/month.

What is hosting? Why is there a monthly cost?
The scheduling application is made accessible over the web. The monthly hosting cost pays for a leased web server managed at a server farm and managed by a 24x7 support staff. Your data is kept secure by maintaing the latest software updates. Your data is backed up nightly with a two week archive of backups. The application is further protected with a web application firewall that examines every request to the application to block hacking attempts.
Begin by adding one or more employees. This is necessary to assign them to job tasks or appointments.
Adding jobs begins by adding a new customer if they 're not yet in the system. We can often import your existing customer list if you have it in an electronic format.
The job form is customized to fit your specific business needs.
After a job is added, you can add a task or appointment. This example shows the task based system.
One or more parts may be added to a job (if parts do not apply to your jobs at all, this module can be removed). Track when each part is received to not lose track of delays.
