Home improvement marketing specialists Quotatis has launched a new office platform aimed at supporting users from getting the work from customer enquiries to getting paid.
Smart provides Quotatis customers with enhanced review and rating functions, in addition to the tools to structure the processing of leads all the way through to final payment.
Quotatis Sales Director Teresa Gizzi said: “Smart is far more than lead generation – it is a whole new way of helping contractors of all sizes to manage the entire process as well as building their reputation from every job they do.
This is the biggest step forward we have ever taken and one which we know will bring massive benefits to every contractor using it. We are all very excited about it and the early response to trials has been fantastic.”
Quotatis has also released a Smart app for mobile access on smartphones and tablets.
The app passes across sales leads and takes contractors through the process of quoting the homeowner, invoicing for the job and taking payment.
Consumers are then invited to review the job using Smart’s advanced Quotatis ratings and review system.
Smart Reviews gives every contractor a bespoke branded web page, allowing contractors to showcase customer reviews.
Feedback can be shared on social media, with a Facebook app to help contractors get even more online exposure. Contractors can display reviews on their own website using the Quotatis trust icon, so visitors can see these independent reviews.
Smart offers tailored solutions for different sizes and styles of companies.
The three platforms include: Smart Local for the sole trader and small business, Smart Connect for companies looking to be more specific about what they need and Smart Select for those companies that want to be selective about the leads they pick.
Teresa Gizzi concluded: “It is clear that the small or medium business will have the most to gain from Smart, because it performs many functions that might otherwise be inaccessible to them, but there are benefits for companies of all sizes and this is supported by the feedback we have received so far.”
