There are several companies providing software for maid services. Check out each one carefully. It;s important to ask about the features of the software, and about the company itself. How long have they been in business? Do they simply provide software to you and then forget about you? Or do they take an active interest in helping you implement the software in your business, making your business more efficient?
Get the names of some other people who are using their software and find out how they have found the software. Was it easy to learn and get started with? Did the software company help you in importing your customer data from other sources? Does the software include the functions you'll need?
Also ask about interfacing with other software programs you use, or plan to use. Also, find out how well the intended software program works in interfacing with other software -- QuickBooks, for example. Some companies say they interface with QuickBooks, but then you find, after you've purchased the software, that the interface is a manual one: you have to manually export information form the software every day, and then go through the laborious task of importing it into QuickBooks. Similarly with other software programs.
You are buying specialized software for your residential cleaning business to help save you time, not make things time-consuming.
