Keep Working Safely & Remotely – Part 2

Sales teams keep working using Beacon Sales Tools through PRO+.

In our first segment of the Keep Working Safely & Remotely series, we talked about the Beacon PRO+ ability to offer important sales tools of 3D imagery, financing and ordering online.  Pro+ connects roofing contractors with their local Beacon branches 24/7 from anywhere, enabling roofing teams to order all their building material supplies online while also tracking deliveries from any smart device. 

During this time of national crisis with COVID-19, more roofing sales professionals are looking for ways to connect with current and potential customers.  Creating a sense of security and trust with homeowners is critical.  Beacon PRO+ offers numerous sales tools to help roofing teams connect with customers digitally providing a safe and efficient means of continuing to provide essential roofing services. 

For contractors working in storm areas where response to damaged roofs is critical at any time, PRO+ offers a Storm Tracker for free.  This storm reporting tool offers customized and real-time storm reports that quickly drive action and sales after major weather events.  Contractors can get real-time storm alerts in the palm of their hand anytime and anywhere.

The powerful storm tracker offers visibility into hail, wind and tornadoes including wind and tornado reports, information on storm paths and in-motion storms and hail reports for small, medium and large hail.  With just 4 easy steps contractors can use the real-time storm tracker by simply entering the zip code, selecting the time frame, choosing the impact radius and picking the level of hail impact to be tracked.  Once the system is set up, customized storm maps are at the fingertips of the roofing sales team, all accessible through both desk top computers and smart devices.  It is a real-time lead generation tool that can help save lives and structures. 

Equally important is the ability to streamline accounting processes while working remotely.  Beacon’s online account management tool, BillTrust, is the easiest and fastest way for contractors to pay bills online and manage their account.  The program can schedule future payments, access invoice and payment history while also downloading billing information to business accounting software.  It provides important email notifications for new invoices and statements.

Along with managing accounts payable remotely, PRO+ also offers access to full order history.  This ability allows estimators, purchasing and sales to understand past order history to facilitate ongoing business while out of the office or working remotely.  The order history function eliminates the paper trail and gives roofing company management teams answers fast.  Orders are searchable and can be downloaded to enable teams access to important information for pricing and past orders.  It also allows approved employees the ability to reorder materials or check in on real-time order statuses.  It is a one-stop-shop, allowing back office personnel to work more efficiently from anywhere while gaining enhanced business insights.

Purchasing personnel can reorder faster allowing jobs and projects to move efficiently while working remotely.  Beacon PRO+ order history makes it seamless to repurchase common products with custom templates, reducing the need for crews to visit distribution branches in order to limit exposure and keep safe social distancing.  The real-time order status tracks every stage of the roofing lifecycle – ordering, delivery and invoicing. This helps manage time and production while staying on top of any changes to each job’s material purchases.
