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.

Good Apps

 

Good Apps

This article was written to give you the basics of what to look for in good apps. So why do we need good apps in the first place?

Well good apps are just computer code that generally work on Smartphones or on Tablets. 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 today for just about anything you can imagine. Weather you just want to play games or you want something more useful for whatever business you happen to be in.

For sure by now you’re 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 should have and idea of just how useful apps can rerally be.

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

So you’re probably thinking where do I find these apps? Well that’s where the App Stores come in. The two biggest app stores are Google Play and Apple iTunes Play Stores. When you go there the App Store will have many Categories ranging from games for children all the way to serious business apps.

An app like the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App is an app designed for Tradesmen and Women to estimate jobs and invoice their clients. One thing about these apps, is that they will usually give you a lot of value for your money. These apps 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.

The other way is they let you download it for free, but 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 download the app and own it on my Smart Device.

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.

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 the’re aren’t lazy, they just and can’t seem to get over their fear to try something new thats 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.

Use Your Customer Base

A great way to Increase Business is to make contact with your Customer Base. One of the things that annoys me is when I want to get in touch with a Service Tech that I used in the past, and I realize that 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.

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 actuallya better way. All you will need is an App like our App the Profit Pal App it has a Coupon Feature.

When you do work for your client you get their email address to send them the Invoice. That email gets saved in the Job File for that particular job. Now it’s easy to stay in touch with them. Now using the Coupon Feature you simply send them a coupon 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.

It's so easy, and now the customers knows 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!
