Garage door installers do much more than installing, maintaining, and fixing garage doors. These professionals communicate with homeowners. They source spare parts. They travel to new destinations every day. The latest iOS and Android apps, therefore, make their life so much easier. Here are five apps for garage door installers that we love.
Evernote is an app that lets garage door installers take notes and make lists. Field service professionals use this app to jot down measurements for garage doors and any equipment they need. The app is available on both iOS and Android, Evernote lets garage door installers create notes and share information with clients with a swipe of a finger.
2. The Weather Channel
Garage door technicians often spend a lot of time outdoors when they install and fix garage doors, and adverse weather conditions can impact their work. The Weather Channel app provides contractors with live maps to track the sun and train and the latest weather forecasts and interactive radar alerts in real-time. The app is available on both iOS and Android.
3. DEWALT Mobile Pro
Garage door installers need to make quick calculations on the go when measuring up. Sure, a regular calculator might do the job but, sometimes, these professionals need something a little more advanced. This is where DEWALT Mobile Pro comes in. It includes 10 customizable calculators and users can save and share important calculations. The app is available on both iOS and Android.
mHelpDesk is an app that improves productivity for garage door installers. Contractors can use this app to manage schedules, optimize billing, communicate with customers, along with office and field staff and access job information quickly. It automates many of the manual tasks associated with garage door installation and streamlines field service management. mHelpDesk, available on iOS and Android devices, even comes with advanced offline features, so installers can continue to access information even if they have no internet connection.
5. Tayasui Sketches
Tayasui Sketches, available on iOS and Android, is a revolutionary app that makes it easier to sketch drawings and diagrams on the job. Garage door technicians can use this app to draw floor plans of garages for later reference, and this is an essential tool for estimates.
