A professional tool to manage a pest control service business. It helps with scheduling pest control service appointments and calculating costs for individual customers.
Features: Pest control service enables a user or manager to keep track of individual schedules for a number of individual employees OR the schedules according to different pest service types (cockroach control, bed bugs control, rat control, termite control etc.). Thus schedules can be displayed according to individual employees or by employee roles. The left pane lists out each of these employees or roles and clicking on a tick mark shows / hides their daily schedule on the right pane in the scheduler tab. The schedule tab also makes it easy for the manager to find a best fit according to availability of employees and it enables an individual employee to manage his / her schedule accordingly. The system can be programmed to generate automated reminders to alert a given employee about an upcoming appointment. Schedules can also be exported to Outlook as well as to a number of different formats including HTML, Excel, TXT, and XML for use with other utilities (say a web-based system).
In the customers tab, the information about each and every customer can be added (customers are then identified by name on the schedule tab as individual appointments). The history of each and every customer (when and what type of pest control service had been done before) is readily available by simply clicking on the required customer from within the customers tab. The Work-Order tab is where work orders are created. These show up as appointments on the schedule tab.
Finally, there is an interface that helps with the calculation of fees to be charged and the printing of invoices. Automatic backup and restore features protect against crashes.
Overall: This is an ideal tool for those who are in the pest control business. It features an easy and intuitive interface that does not require too much computer knowledge on the part of the user. Most things are readily available on the interface as tabs, including backup and restore features. Not much to complain about.
