Billing Apps

Billing Apps

Billing apps are a better way to bill your customers. When you get into any kind of business you’re going to need a way to bill your customers.

They say “Necessity is the Mother of Invention.” And there’s a good reason for that.

It’s usually some form of problem that results in a solution for that particular situation.

When Thomas Edison invented the Light Bulb, a large part of the reason aside from we need light to see things, was the fact that kerosene Lanterns were dangerous as many fires resulted from their use.

So this necessitated a better way to create light.

Men have always since the dawn of time been creative. From the first primitive tools to the modern day marvels that we see today.

Billing apps are no different, they take a few problems and solve them.

  1. No need for pens or paper
  2. They can be sent the electronically, saving time
  3. Locality is no longer an issue since you don’t need to be with the client for them to get their bill

I could go on and on but you get the idea. I mean we aren’t still riding around on horses are we?

The time came for the whole process of billing to go electronic and that’s exactly what happened.

As much as some of us would like to stay in the past, that’s just not possible today we must move on.

There are just too many advantages to Billing Apps that they are now here to stay.

So if this article has peaked your interest, then you might want to get of to one of the App Stores and see them for yourself.

Thanks for reading

Free Trials

Free Trials are a great Way to Experience a New App

Free? is this a way t get started? How many times have you seen “Free Trials” in an ad for an App?  They lure you in to sign up for the Free Trial. Only to find out that they are withholding the best features in the app.

So you sign up for the free trial, only to find out that you’ve got a limited version of the app, that doesn’t have the features you need to conduct your business.  These free trials are very tricky as far as usability.

Don’t be Fooled

They’re trying to get you hooked, to where you’ll need their app before the real price for the app is revealed. You’ll have to pay a lot more because they have different levels and not only that, but they’ll charge you on a monthly basis as well to use all the features. Since all of those apps require a monthly subscriptions at different levels to use their apps.

By the time they have you hooked, you’ll be spending a lot of money if you want to use all of the features in their app. This can become confusing and stressful especially when you’re trying to do business.

No Gimicks

With our app, there are no such gimmicks. Although you can have a 7 Day Free Trial, you’ll get all of the same features as if you had purchased the app long term.  When you get the app on your Smartphone or tablet you’ll have the best and least expensive Invoicing App available.

With our app The Profit Pal App you’ll be able to create job files, estimates, and send as many invoices as you like to all your clients any time you want. Since the app is full of features for you to use.

So don’t fall for the Free Trials Gimicks, get an app that you can count on and use for free for 7 Days or for as long as you like for a small price, without the gimmick’s or tricks.

So What are Good Apps Anyway?

Reports
Good Apps

So What is Considered Good Apps Anyway?

Good apps are best when doing any kind of business? They are ones that can deliver what your business needs. This article was written to give you the basics of what to look for in good apps. So you’ll know why we need good apps in the first place?

Apps are just computer code that will work on a Smartphone or on Tablet. Since the advent of Smart Devices, it was necessary that code writers get busy writing programs for these devices.

And what has happened has really been amazing as there are more apps being created every day for just about anything imaginable. Whether you just want to play games or you want something more useful for whatever business you happen to be in.

By now most people are aware of Navigation apps, such as Google Navigation, or Waze Traffic App, there really are so many others, but those are probably the two most popular navigation apps. If you’ve used either of them, then you know how useful they are.

If you can think of a need there’s probably an app out there to fit that need. Good Apps can do many different things differentiated only by the designer and the requirements.

One like the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App was designed for Tradesmen and Women to estimate jobs and invoice their clients. One thing about this app is that they will usually give you a lot of value for your money. These also have many different features built into them.

Now you may be thinking how does all of this get paid for since no one works for free, and it can’t be cheap to have these made. Well, you are correct in your assumption. What happens is you either pay a one-time price in which case you pay you download it to your device and you can use it forever; however, there is a cost to the app provider since they need

The other way is they let you download it for free, I wouldn’t recommend one of these because they place ads in the app that come up at random and you have to look at them for a few seconds. I don’t know about you but if I am using a serious business app I don’t want to be interrupted with those ads. So I would pay the price to download one on my Smart Device.

A good one is any that can help your business to succeed. So hope this article was helpful and that you now have a better understanding of what apps are all about.

The Secret to Their Success

The Secret to Their Success

Who hasn’t wondered about that man or woman that we see living the life we wish we had? I know I have! Well, why do you think we wish we were that person? Could it be that they know something we don’t and that’s the secret to their success?

Surely they must know something that makes them behave differently. The truth is they do know something, and it’s probably not what you’re thinking. What they have been able to do is to find a different way to do things and go about life than what regular people do. You see its no secret that the results that we get in life are directly a result of the way we’re doing things. It’s really that simple. If you want different results then you need to change the way you’re doing things.

The old saying goes’ if your digging a whole and can’t see the top, then stop digging. Does that make any sense to you? Now, why did I say all of that?

I’ll tell you why so many people today continue to drown in their businesses because they aren’t willing to try something new. They simply refuse, telling themselves that the new system or gadget is just a rip off of their money. Even when the cost may be so small that it wouldn’t hurt them in the least.

The truth is there aren’t lazy, they just and can’t seem to get over their fear to try something new that’s all. Even though that new thing or way of doing things, is probably exactly what they should be doing. It would get them out of their rut. Whenever you learn to do something new it hurts a little at first because you are training your brain in a new task. But that’s a good thing, and the more you do it the easier it is. With time it becomes routine.

And so it is with using our app the Profit Pal App sure the first time it will seem a little challenging, but rest assured it was designed with you in mind so it won’t be impossible. You’ll get the hang of it and soon be using it to send invoices, reports, and even sending coupons to your customers to stay in touch with them.

So don’t despair when wouldn’t now be a good time to use the Profit Pal App for Invoicing your clients. You’ll be that person that people look up to as being competent in business since you didn’t shy away from a small challenge and you learned what it took to succeed.

Use Your Customer Base

 

The Customer is King

Your customer is the most important part of your business. They definately should not be taken lightly. A great way to Increase Business is to stay in contact with your Customer Base, on at least a monthly basis. One of the things that annoy me is when I want to get in touch with a Service Tech that I used in the past, and I realize they have not even attempted to stay in touch with me. That’s like saying “I don’t need your business.” It’s just sad, and no way to run a legit business. Customers want to feel that you want their business.

Send Something of Value

If you’re not sending them something once in a while you will most likely lose that customer to someone that will take better care of them. There’s really no excuse for this when there are so many ways for you to stay relevant to them. You could send them a flyer or a letter, but today there’s actually a better way. Send them a coupon for discounts on future work, they will be happy to receive it and will know that you’re still in business. So you kill two birds with one stone.

Using an App

With an app like the Profit Pal App when you do work for your client you can capture their email addresse when you send them their Invoice. That email gets saved in the Job File for that particular job. Now it’s easy to stay in touch with them. Using the Coupon Feature you simply send them a coupon from time to time right from the app. There are three templates to choose from. You just create an offer let’s say 10% off for returning customers, send it to them via email right from your Smartphone.

Easier Than You May Think

It’s so easy, and now the customers know that you’re still in business and that you’re interested in their business and appreciate them. So don’t hesitate use this feature in the app and stop ignoring your previous customers and use them as a way to increase your business.

Vinnie a Plumber’s Story

Vinnie’s Story

Don’t know where your Parts are going? Read about Vinnie and his Plumbing Company

Vinnie owns a plumbing company that runs 10 plumbing trucks. Vinnie was constantly complaining that the crews that work for him could not account for all of the parts they were supposed to be putting into the jobs. They couldn’t tell him what parts went into which jobs. He said he needed a way to know where all of his parts were actually going.

We decided to create a solution for Vinnie and his Plumbing Company. What we came up with is simply magical, if you know what I mean. Because not only does this application show what parts went into which job, that’s just the beginning. We call this feature in the Profit Pal Application the Inventory Control Feature. With this feature the plumbing technician on each truck creates his very own inventory. He or she just enters the names of the parts and the part starting count. Now as he adds one or one hundred parts to the job the app is tracking them. The application adds the parts to the invoice for that job’s file, and automatically subtracts them from the totals. Now each week the Lead Plumber, on each of the trucks just emails his job reports to Vinnie, and Vinnie can re-order however many parts are needed to resupply the trucks.

No longer is Vinnie frustrated by not knowing where his parts went. He’s got actual data to go by.

So Vinnie’s a happy man.

We know it’s a source of frustration told by many tradesmen and woman. That’s why we put this Inventory Control Feature in the application. We know just how frustrating it can be keeping track of where all of your expensive parts are going.

So we came up with a solution. This is just the kind of help you’ve been waiting for! The Inventory Control Feature in the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing Application. Especially since another one of the most annoying situations, that just about every business comes across, at one time or another, are part shortages.

This can be very troublesome, as most likely the worker/ technician will have to stop working, and go for parts. And that’s a major time eater.

And as if that’s not bad enough, if you don’t have an Inventory Control system, then you most likely don’t have a way to track what parts went into which job either! Follow along…

This one can actually be dangerous to your business.

In this example, suppose the technician working for you, says that he put a new part at that last location, and the job fails.  And you come to find out that the new part you thought went into that job, actually went to another job. That situation could become a big problem for your business, and rather embarrassing as well. Especially when you’re confronted with an irate client.

Well guess what these problems can actually be avoided. That is if you have an application like the Profit Pal Mobile invoicing Application. This application now has an Inventory Control Feature built in it. This feature allows you to create your very own Inventory Control Form, where you’ll list all of the parts on your truck, and there cost.  And as you create the job file, and assign a part to a job, the application immediately add it to the invoice for that job, and automatically update, the cost for that part or multiple parts, and the inventory for that part is automatically updated, and also accounted for on the bill.

The application’s feature can track your inventory count, quantity’s used, and remaining parts in your bin, so you don’t have to worry, and you know where you stand on parts each and every day.

It just doesn’t get any better than this! Now with this new Inventory Control Feature, we’ve thought of everything for you, and made it easy to use.  So no more excuses! Get this application on your Smartphone or Tablet, you and your business will be covered in so many different ways. Vinnie is now a happy man and you can be too.

So don’t waist another minute, you know you need it, and since “time is money.” As they say!

Invoice Generator

Why you should be using an Invoice Generator

An Invoice Generator is an important tool to use in business today! Every business out there should have an invoice generator to generate invoices at some point in time. Many businesses send out hundreds of invoices a day.

That being the case it’s important to have the ability to invoice your clients effectively. Today that’s easier than ever to accomplish. By downloading an invoicing app on your Smartphone. Its much better than using the old fashion paper invoicing method.

The reason that it’s better is because, if the client don’t want to carry paper around, then you don’t need to. With an invoicing app you just create and send it to them via email there from your phone. That way you have the choice to read it, and if the you want a paper copy all you do is send it to a printer.

It’s a much more convenient that way to conduct business. I know that  it works for me. I probably haven’t even printed out many paper invoices and I have received many in the last year. I just like to read them at my leisure and if the’re correct then that’s good enough for me. That way I don’t need to save all of that paper.

These days we just don’t want to store excess paper unless it’s absolutely necessary. That’s why it’s good to have an invoice generator to send the bill to your clients. They will appreciate you more for considering these things beforehand. People now days want to work with businesses that know how to use the technological thats available.

If you think about it, it makes sense. Imagine yourself needing a surgery for some illness, and going to a hospital that was using equipment from the 1920’s. Not a comfortable feeling is it? Especially when you know that there’s so much good new technology to help people now days that wasn’t around back then. You would want the doctor to use the best equipment available today right?

You should really look at it from your clients perspective, don’t you think they want a Tradesman who uses the latest tools. That says a lot about you and your business. It says to them that you’re a competent Tradesman who knows how to conduct business in these modern times.

And isn’t that’s the positive impression you want to give them. So get yourself an Invoice Generator and please your clients. We recomend the Profit Pal App.

Definition of an Invoice

What actually is the Definition of an Invoice 

An Invoice is an accounting of what the transaction was about. So let’s look into it, what’s the definition of an invoice anyway? Well, this according to  Webster’s Dictionary Online an invoice is an itemized statement of money owed for goods shipped, or services rendered. A written account of the particulars of merchandise shipped or sent to a purchaser, consignee, factor, etc., with the value or prices and charges annexed.

The lot or set of goods as shipped or received; as the merchant receives a large invoice of the goods.

One area on the invoice should include, who t send a bill to; “She invoiced the company for her expenses.” To make a written list or account of, as goods to be sent to a consignee; to insert in a priced list; to write or enter in an invoice. The base verb from the following inflections: invoicing, invoiced, invoices, invoicer,  and invoiced.

The word can be used as a Noun: as in “the invoice is ready.” Or it can be used as a Verb: as in, are you invoicing the customer?

Today; however, with the advent of computers, it’s possible to send them directley to customers via email.

In the past, much of this was done on paper. Today that’s no longer the case.

Why use snail mail when It’s much easier to use your Smartphone  All you’ll need is an app on your phone that allows you to send it to customer’s right from your phone.

So how is this accomplished? When you create the job file, that data is saved and when your ready to send an invoice that information is brought over and builds the invoice that you’re sending to your customer. Then the app just uses the email account that you have set up on your phone, so it will show up as coming from you.

Most of us today receive our invoices right on our phones anyway, gone are the days when we needed to go to our home computers to receive our emails.

We recommend to people that you use an app to invoice since this creates a record for you, as well as a copy for your customer.

Please consider using the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App as it does all of the above.

Coupons are a great way to reward previous customers for their loyalty to your business. That’s one reason!

But there’s another reason as well which many businesses overlook, and people fail to understand about coupons. Coupons make great marketing tools. Let me explain, if you’re in any type of business one of your main concerns is getting more business. And there’s no better way to get more than to stay in touch with your previous customers.

Since it’s important to have a viable business that you continue to get customers. Now those customers can be new customers or returning customers. Which type of customer do you think is easier to get, new ones, or customers who already know and feel comfortable with you?

All of the data say’s that returning customer business is easier to get. And if you look at your own shopping patterns you’ll see that you go time and again to the same stores that you like and have done business with in the past. So you can see that it’s easier to get business from customers you have already serviced in the past.

Now, this is where sending coupons come in. You don’t want to appear desperate for the business so you probably don’t want to Cold Call customers, to ask for the business although that may work at times.

It’s much easier to send an email a coupon. Now they can remember you, and appreciated that you’re sending them something useful. And who doesn’t like to save money?

So by sending them a coupon you have accomplished two things.

1. You’ve renewed contact with an existing customer (which remember the data says it’s easier to get business from)

2.  You’ve sent them a reward for doing business with you in the past

Can you see how sending customer coupons can really boost your businesses numbers?

So let’s get started sending coupons to your customers today!

Now all that’s left is to get an app that can do all of this. And that brings us to the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App with this app on your Smartphone you can do everything you just read in this article.

How to Properly Estimate Your Jobs

How to Properly Estimate a Job

When you estimate your job there are many important things to consider. First what type of work will this be? Wood, Concrete, Plumbing, Electrical you get the idea.

Will there be any special considerations? Such as difficulties to overcome. The reason for taking this approach is that you can only then ensure you’ve accounted for the complexities of the actual work at hand. Once you’ve done that, and most likely determined it will be a normal job you can then put that behind you, and get on with creating a normal estimate for the work.

The job estimate needs to be comprehensive, on your end. What I mean to say by that is it’s important that you get all of your cost included in your initial estimate as much as possible because you don’t want to have to go back to your client and ask for more money right after you begin the job. That can be very annoying to clients. That’s why you need to put the thought into the estimating process beforehand!

A good way to do this is to have a company template that’s where you enter your company information that you will use when you’re creating estimates for the jobs. The template should include areas where you can account for the hours you estimate the job will take, an area where you can account for the materials that will go into the job.

Accounting for All the Work

There should even be an area where you can account for miscellaneous things and even an area where you can account for the full cost of moving your vehicle to the job site. No one area is more important than another, they should all carry the same weight in the estimate.

There are reasons for this. If you fail to get paid correctly for the job then that’s called doing charity work. And that’s OK if that’s your intention, but not OK if you in business to make a living.

Now what you may not know is that there is an app for your Smartphone that has already taken all of these areas into consideration and has a built-in Job Template you can use to estimate jobs with.

The name of the app is the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App. This app can guide you through the process of making great estimates for your jobs. When you log into the app it has a sheet that you follow to input the numbers and the app does the calculations in the background saving your numbers to go into the invoice you will send your clients.

This app can really help you to make better estimates!

It’s important to know what the hourly rates for work are in your area. This is easier than you think. You can accomplish this with a simple phone call.

One Way to Get the Job Cost

There are ways to find out what contractors in your area are charging for jobs. You can call a few of them and ask them to give you an idea as to what a particular job will cost.

If it’s a concrete laying job make sure to have the square feet that you plan on laying. You also want to know the grade of concrete you want to use. That matters as to whether you laying concrete for a patio or you’re doing a driveway where the weight of cars has to be a consideration. Doing this can greatly improve your bidding process.

Knowing the Job Details Before You Bid!

Make sure you know all of the details of the job so that you are comparing apples to apples. It’s important to know what your actual cost will be. You should know the cost of a job before you give them the estimate. People almost always do their own homework before they call you. So it’s important that you’re in the ballpark. Since your customer will most likely have a ballpark idea what the job should cost, and you may lose the job by bidding to high. There are of course areas where you can pay the bill but you don’t have a chance if you don’t win the bid first.

Mobile Invoicing Apps for Business

Mobile Invoicing Apps for Business, What Are They?

So what are Mobile Apps for Business? Mobile Invoicing Apps are used every day. They are generally apps that can be used to invoice customers from a Smart Phone or Tablet.

The purpose and reason for having mobile invoicing app’s is the convenience they provide the user. In the old traditional way of invoicing customers typically the tradesman or woman would have a pad of multiple receipts, on which they would write down what was done for that particular customer and how much was charged for the job. An invoicing app allows you to enter details of the job, and that’s and all of the cost involved with doing the job.

The problem with that method is it was hit or miss, and sometimes things were left out of the invoice. Things that could latter come to haunt the trades’ person. For example what it he trades person forgot to put on the invoice what materials cost that went into the job?

I am sure that many trades’ people didn’t even account for their fuel and travel cost to the job. These may seem like small things but in reality they can really add up over time. Think about it if a trades man or woman didn’t charge let’s say $20.00 for fuel cost to each job they did in a months’ time how much would that add up to say each year. The amount of lost revenue can really hurt that trade’s person’s bottom line. Mobile applications can really help with this.

After all aren’t you in business to make money and not to lose it? I bet you probably have areas that you can think of, areas where trades people have been losing money. And it’s not like your charging for something that’s not an actual expense. It’s just that you want to get every penny that went into the job.

These are some of the reasons many people have turned to Mobile Invoicing Apps today. It’s more of a system to help the trades’ person to get paid correctly than anything else.

Since the apps have a Template that one follows, and as you do the app is entering the data into the fields and adding it all up for you.

These Mobile Invoicing Apps can really be an advantage to any business person. If you’re in business you really owe it to yourself to get a Mobile Invoicing App today, and don’t walk run you’ll be glad you did.
