I tried a number of different scheduling apps that claimed to be the all in one solution to scheduling and organising jobs but there were always so many features missing that I always moved back to my calendar on my iPhone.
Squeegee was recommended to me on a window cleaning forum when it was in the very early days of its production. Immediately from looking at the initial pictures I could see that this app finally had the potential to be the all in one service a business owner could need. I was lucky enough to be invited to use the beta version and work with the developers of this service. It was a no-brainer to move to Squeegee, mainly because the creators of this app listen to every single bit of feedback that a user makes and do their absolute best to incorporate it, and quickly! Just this alone was enough of a reason to move to this service, and because of the developers commitment to listening to their customers, they have managed to create an app that is absolutely unparalleled by its competitors.
It was pretty much instant. The only problem for me was that all my jobs were saved individually as recurring calendar entries so I had to input them manually. For people who use other services Squeegee makes it instantaneous to transfer all data over and does this very efficiently.
I would say it saves on average a minimum of half an hour a day. If not more. The scheduling feature helps me to know what jobs are due that day, the cost of the job etc. When it’s next due is another great feature as I can communicate that instantly with the customer rather than having to flick through my calendar counting how many weeks till the next appointment.
The insights have been invaluable. It’s getting better over time which is great. It’s the first time I really have an understanding of things like how many clients I have, what services are most valuable to my business, expected earnings for each month and previous earnings. I am able to work more efficiently and faster because the route planner optimises my jobs for the day.
It’s funny because it seems so basic, but the overdue section is the section I find to be so valuable. It helps me to earn much more because with my previous system it was difficult to manage which jobs were overdue. Also the work planner gives clear information making it easy to track how much I have or will earn on any given day.
