ProGroup Home Service Specialists is New Zealand’s award winning and premier home service franchise group. ProGroup’s aim is to provide New Zealand home owners specialised and professional home services, performed by fully trained and qualified franchise business owners.
This application is a tool offered on their site for the registered tradespeople to calculate the amount and costing of materials for various renovation tasks, such as painting or staining a deck, carpeting a garage or painting a fence, for a quote for customers.
Each tool calculates the area per square meter and includes labour costs, and consumables, eg petrol or masking paper.
The tool has been created using a framework called Angular JS.
ProGroup also needed a way to track leads and quotes from each franchise to group data to eliminate inconsistency's to create a easy-to-manage system for both the franchisee and the franchiser. Their old paper and email method had large variability in data entry. ProGroup needed a CRM system to manage their data effectively.
VTiger is a comprehensive CRM system which allows for management and automation of business processes.
ProGroup’s usage of this system is split into two parts:
The franchisee: Is given a process to follow when creating quotes that is automated.
The best part of this is that all the calculations, quote and invoices are done automatically once the data is entered. This means it's easier for the franchisee to do their job, but also creates consistency from each franchise.
The franchiser: This makes it easy for the franchiser to overlook all activity. The franchiser is able to manage leads, quotes and usage without any concern for variability in data entry.
Xero is accounting software used to manage invoices.
Now that ProGroup’s business processes are consistent, invoicing can be automated using our VTiger to Xero integration.
ProGroup Home Service Specialists now have a fully automated business model that gives them a huge advantage over other premier home service franchise groups.
