The world has changed. Today’s businesses must adapt by embracing technology and new ways of working to not only survive but gain a competitive advantage. However, one thing that has not changed is how precious your time is. Driving to and from a client’s home or premises to assess a job for quoting or to check out a problem to better understand an issue is not a smart way to do business, especially when you can now do it quickly, accurately and efficiently from home or the car.
Building a pipeline of work is vital for sustainable success in any business, trades being no exception. The more quotes you do, the greater your chances of securing the work. The saying, ‘time is money’ has never been more applicable. For business success in 2020 and beyond the key is to work smarter by making the best possible use of your time using technology to your advantage.
New app allows you to assess, triage & quote jobs without physical inspections
RemoteQuote is a new video streaming service with built-in smart technology that allows you to remotely view, record, take HD pictures as well as crucial measurements (length, area), via AR (Augmented Reality) technology and at the end creates impressive quotes in just a few clicks. So now you can assess, triage and quote on repairs and maintenance work with accuracy from home, the car or wherever you are 24/7, ensuring you never miss an opportunity to quote and secure work. No more having to physically inspect the problem, whether it be in the client’s home, office or vehicle, saving you time and money in travel and overheads. It allows you to provide a rapid turnaround service, giving you the ability to secure more work, with the added flexibility to quote or address issues outside normal business hours.
How does RemoteQuote work?
RemoteQuote is the ideal remote triage and quoting solution for any trade professional, from carpenters, electricians and plumbers to handymen and motor vehicle repairers.
The live video streaming service could not be easier to use. Simply use the RemoteQuote Web Portal through your web browser on your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone and your client will need the app which runs on 4G, 5G and wi-fi networks.Importantly, you see what they see!
Here’s how it works…
- You receive a quote or issue request, either directly from a client or from an external party, such as a property manager.
- Simply contact the client/tenant to start or schedule a session.
- They will receive the RemoteQuote App link in an SMS when you are ready to begin the session.
- The client/tenant opens the link from their device to begin the live video streaming session.
- They show you the problem at hand, whether it be in their home, commercial premises or in their motor vehicle (car, boat, caravan etc.) and then you guide them to film what you need to see. You can help guide them to take measurements and photos where necessary.
- Immediately after the session, the video, measurements, and photos are securely stored in your portal for 48 hours, giving you ample time to quote.
- Collate all your photos and measurements into an impressive itemised quote that can include multiple options for the work. Send to your client in just a few clicks.
Gain the edge over your competition – do more quotes, win more business!
With no need to attend the site, you can complete the quote on the day it is received, giving you a significant advantage over your competitors. After all, the difference between winning and losing a job often comes down to speed and efficiency.
World-class built-in features for outstanding functionality
RemoteQuote functions similarly to existing live-streaming systems, except that it has been purpose-built with tradies in mind. It offers easy scheduling, HD vision and the option to take photos. The amazing AR measurement tools that enable distances and areas to be calculated with accuracy are game-changers on their own. The AR tools allow you to capture all dimensions in a room or of an object (no tape measure required). Best of all the inbuilt quoting tool collates all the information you have collected from the session so that you can easily prepare and send the quote in just a few clicks. With everything securely saved on our server for you to access later, not only can you carefully prepare quotes but you also have the peace of mind knowing the recorded information will protect you should there ever be a dispute in the future.
