How Squeegee messaging has affected our customers

save time and money like these businesses

Squeegee assists our day to day running of our small busy team.

I like the fact [Squeegee] is an intelligent, practical system enabling me to be reactive to the many issues that occur during the daily routes. The re-planning toggle has been invaluable to quickly be responsive during the day as the target is forever moving.

Squeegee has been a fantastic addition to our business

Squeegee has been a fantastic addition to our business. The system allows us to send an automatic invoice to customers as soon as the job is marked as complete. Not only this, with the integration of GoCardless and Stripe, it also allows automatic payments to be collected directly from the customer at the time of invoicing. This has significantly reduced the time needed to collect and chase payments and substantially reduced late payments within the business.

Squeegee app has saved us hours of admin, and has helped me personally achieve more of a work/life balance.

For us, the Squeegee app has helped our business to become automated. Previous software we used relied on us sending endless text messages and emails manually to each individual customer every single day, along with hand posting our invoices following each completed service. With the Squeegee app all of our notifications are sent at once at the touch of a button, and Invoices are sent automatically via the customers preferred method. On top of that, the majority of our customers payments are paid and ticked off automatically. The Squeegee app has saved us hours of admin, and has helped me personally achieve more of a work/life balance.
