How To Use The Map Pins

If you have gotten familiar with the Profit Pal App by now you will have noticed these funny looking rectangular boxes with a what looks like a pinpointing downward in them. Those are the Map Pins, and they are used by the app to calculate distance. They are an interesting and very useful feature of the app.

How they work is the uppermost pin is for your job location. So you tap on the pin it opens the map, and you move the map until you see the general location of the new job. You don’t need to be exact just close enough.  A Red Star will come up at that location marking it. Next, you hit done left-hand top of the screen. The location map pin is set. Next, you tap the map pin identified as Current Location. Each time you tap the map pin it will show your current location. So leave that one as is, since its snowing where you are currently located. That’s it the app now has both your new job location and your current location.  The app will use both to calculate the distance from your current location to the new job location.

Can you begin to see how the Profit Pal App was designed to help you get paid more for your travel expenses to and from your jobs? This is why the Map Pins were put into the app.To help you to account for this expense. Now when you enter some of the other items such as Price of Fuel, and if you chose to also add the Mileage Expense, the app will use the calculated distance from the Map Pins to calculate the expense.

Profit Pal App was designed with all of these things in mind, so you don’t need to bust your head calculating them each time you go out to a new job location, the app does it for you!

Job Changes in the Field

imagesACYDD59M

When the Job Changes in the Field

Whenever the job changes in the field it’s no problem with the Profit Pal App. Many of you Tradespeople out there know that many times when you arrive at a job it is much different than what the customer told you on the phone.

When it becomes necessary to modify the estimate you gave the customer. This is no problem with Profit Pal, all you do is tap the Pencil on that particular job and make the changes and recalculate. If it was additional materials, which is usually the case then Profit Pal will even automatically add the tax based on the percentage tax you originally entered for the job.

This is how the Profit Pal App makes your job easier. How many trade’s people forget to add the tax that they will have to pay for the new items that are being added to the job.

This is what the app was designed to help with. When you enter the job data into the appropriate fields the app takes care of the rest.

These changes are required quite often since it’s difficult to accurately estimate the job until you have actually seen it. And there will be many additions as well as subtractions when you arrive at the job location.

Things like travel distance and fuel may not change much but surely adding additional materials will be an issue. Just know that you can change any of these numbers just by taping the pencil and entering the new values. Profit Pal App Tutorial Click Here!

So why am I suggesting you get my app? There’s a simple answer “because I made it for you and your business to succeed.” It’s really that simple no need to elaborate anymore.

If I didn’t think this app was the best app for you I wouldn’t be promoting it!

Travel Expenses

 

Get Paid When You Roll Your Vehicle!
Get Paid When You Roll Your Vehicle!

Travel Expenses and getting to the Job

It’s important to get paid for your Vehicle.

Your vehicle is an important part of getting the job done.

If you really want to be the best at making the most money for your company, you really should be using the Profit Pal App for every job that you bill.

The Profit Pal App helps you to maximize the amount of money you make on every job because it allows you to account for things.

Stop assuming that you know your numbers and get the actuals every time. That’s an advantage that you get when you use the Profit Pal App to bill your jobs.

Your competition will undoubtedly be missing many of the areas that you will have accounted for. It’s very important that when you roll your service truck to that new job that you were actually compensated correctly.

In time you will need to purchase a new truck and since you included a reasonable amount to help compensate for the wear and tear on your current vehicle, you will be in a better position to get the new one when the time comes.

Many tradesmen fail to account for these types of cost, and so doing do themselves a disservice. Profit Pal was designed to help you receive the compensation you deserve when billing the jobs.

Another area that gets neglected is to charge a surcharge or overrides on the materials that you include in the job. Many tradesmen can add an additional amount in this area. This is above the cost of the materials and is usually charged for securing the materials. Profit Pal allows you to account for this as well.

Hopefully, you are starting to understand Profit Pal and how it can work for you! Profit Pal App Tutorial Click Here!

Profit Pal App and the next Recession

Profit Pal App and the next Recession

In a recession, it’s important to make the most you can. And the next one is no exception, it will be important for you to have an app like the Profit Pal App. What you may not know is this, the Profit Pal App was created to help Tradesmen & Women in small businesses by helping them to earn more on the work they are already doing. It’s important in these tough economic times to accountant for and gets paid for everything that goes into a job.

Many economists out there are saying that another recession is around the corner for many different reasons, of which I will not get into here.  Understanding that the creator of the Profit Pal App wanted to create something that would help tradespeople out there to be more competitive, while still achieving their income goals.  As this will be imperative in tough economic times ahead.

How Profit Pal does this is a secret, but the creator of the app knows this.  I will let you in on part of it, to start with, the app has calculations built in which all but guarantee you’ll get it right. In the New Jobs Screen, the user enters.

Now having said that, this does not mean that you should pad the bill, but that you need this information, it’s very important since you need a target to shoot for.

How about padding the bill. You need to be cognizant that if you do pad the bill too high you may not be competitive with other tradesmen & women in your same area. This may make it more difficult for you to get the job if you are bidding on the work.

Having said that, the app helps you to understand all of your real cost for that particular job so that you don’t underbid the job and end up with a loss.

It’s important to account for all of the numbers, and the app will help you do that.  If you look at the fields as a guide and fill in the most accurate numbers that you think it will take to do the job.

If you decide that you can actually do the job for less, then you just adjust your numbers down a little, and now you are more competitive while still taking into account all of the issues for that particular job.

Profit Pal App Title Field


Profit Pal App Title Field

One of the great features the Profit Pal App has is the Title Field if you prefer to call it a box, that’s OK too. I do, I generally just call them boxes to be filled in.

When you open the app you start at the Goal screen. About halfway down the page there is a Green Dot with a + sign in it. When you tap that Plus sign you will be taken to the new jobs page. This is where you enter all of the job.

You start with the Title field. It can be really useful when used correctly.  If you are an electrician or a plumber, or refrigerator repairman or… for example: you most likely went to a physical address to do the job.

You can enter that address into the title field.  Or you can enter what ever data in the title field that you want,  its just to help you if you ever need to look it up again in the future. Since you followed the Profit Pal instructions “ha hum,” and ‘Saved’ the job as it says to do.  Then what happened is that the Profit Pal App sent you an email from your phone ( that is’ if you have your email account set up on your phone as most people do) to the email address you used when you purchased the app in the Google Play Store or the Apple I-tunes store.

And in that email was a lot of information and the information entered in the title field is just one of them.  Now not only will you have the property address, if that is what you wrote in there, you will also have copies of the maps if you used the map pins located in the app, which I am sure you did if you followed the instructions in the app.

The maps will show you the location you were at when you did the job.  This information should be a big help to you should you need to go back for more work to the same location, at some time in the future.

Can you begin to see the power of the Profit Pal App. Each field or box’ was deeply thought about, and how it would help small business person. The creator of the app comes from a family of trade’s people, and has owned several businesses, so he knew what data was important to capture. The data you entered is that data, and it fits into the overall job picture so as to be comprehensive in nature.

By the time you finish a job the last thing you want is to realize you were not paid for some portion of the job i.e. travel, fuel cost, or taxes you had to pay on the materials that went into the job. These are a few of the areas that Trade’s men and women can get short changed in. Profit Pal was designed to stop that from happening.

Download the app at the app stores just follow the link that applies to your smartphone.
