With 2019’s relatively quiet hurricane season reaching it’s peak this month, we’d like to talk about how a remote measuring solution, and roofing software in general, can help restoration companies manage the unpredictable workload that comes with a storm environment.
One of the big unknowns going into a storm environment is how many projects you’ll be taking on. Depending on the extent of the damage, the competition’s presence, and your sales acumen, your company may be selling more jobs than you’d expect. Finding software that allows for the creation of multiple projects, and keeps your data, documents, contracts, etc. organized is key.
RoofSnap customers enjoy unlimited project creation at all subscription levels, and that flexibility is perfect when tackling the unknown workload you’ll find in storm response. When you find a neighborhood that needs your help, you can quickly create projects with the addresses of affected homes while on-site, and sketch their measurements later. You can also include notes on the project right in the app, and save yourself some scribbling!
A software solution keeps notes and other information organized.

Storm response and hurricane response especially is an all-hands-on-deck situation. You want your best sales team on the streets, with the support they need from the rest of your company. You’ll want a cloud-based solution so that your team can share information and follow up with customers as quickly as possible. Depending on the damage to local infrastructure, this may require your team to bring portable hot-spots for internet access, make sure they’re well-equipped before they head into the affected area.
If you’d rather concentrate on your conversations with homeowners, you can always hand off the measuring to our Sketch Ordering Service. SketchOS supports multi-pin orders so you can order several homes at once, and our pricing makes measuring a honey-hole the least of your worries. To top it off, our lightning-fast turnaround time means you’ll receive your measurements faster than competitors using slower services.
Save time for important conversations
With the chaos and confusion that normally follows a large-scale storm event, the affected homeowners will be understandably distraught. Their lives have been upended, and they’re likely being contacted by multiple salespersons, adjusters, and contractors. Making sure to spend adequate time explaining the restoration process, with clear timelines, and assurances of quality are important. Find the time to have these conversations, and make it clear your team is working with them to get their lives back on track.
