The basic process of repairing or replacing a roof hasn’t changed much in the last several decades. It still requires someone getting on top of a house or building and physically adding shingles or other roofing materials. While there’s an art to this process and a good roofer can get the job done in no time at all, there are other aspects of roofing that can be brought into the current century. This includes adding roofing software to your business.

Technology has touched every aspect of our lives, and the roofing industry is no different. It may not have come up with a new way of adding shingles, but it can help in other aspects of the industry. Here are some ways that roofing software can have a positive impact on your business.

Track Your Jobs and Manage Production

When it comes to your roofing company, you probably have multiple jobs going on at one time. While it’s a good thing to have a lot of business, it can be challenging to keep track of each project. When you have the right software, you’ll be able to manage and track all of your roofing jobs. With a drag and drop feature, you’ll also be able to quickly and easily organize each project so that you know where you or your employees are in the process. This can also help you follow up to get new roofing jobs or collect payment when a project is finished.

Capture and Upload Photos

Being able to take photos of the job site means knowing exactly what you are getting into when it comes to repairing or replacing the roof. If you have the right roofing software, after taking those photos, you’ll be able to upload them into the job profile or share them with others. This can be incredibly beneficial if your clients are interested in seeing the amount of damage that has impacted their roof or if you need to share the photos with insurance adjusters or subcontractors. With the right software, you’ll be able to share photos quickly and easily before you leave the jobsite.

Reduce Profit Loss and Risk of Injury

Having the right technology to bring your roofing company into the current century means having software that can quickly and accurately take aerial measurements of your roofing jobs. This can save you from having to climb onto the roof, which increases your risk of injury. It can also reduce the chances of misreading your measurements and writing down the wrong number, which can lead to ordering the wrong amount of supplies.

Getting these measurements is easy and are often only a click away. Not only will this preserve your money, but it can also help you make money. If you don’t have to spend as much time at each job location taking measurements by hand, you can measure and bid a lot more jobs. 

Impress Customers

The vast majority of customers that you will be working with will have the most current technology. If you want to impress them and look professional, sending them an estimate or invoice to their email could accomplish that task. You can even collect payments online, which means that you’ll get your money faster and make life more convenient for your customers.

It’s best to take a few sips before you spend on bottles, and this is possible with the help of wine dispensers – an apparatus which allows people to try up to five varietals of wines, enabling you to buy and pay for as little as 30ml v/s paying for a full glass which is 120 ml.

In a conversation with IANSlife, Kewadkar shares details of the benefits of dispensers and their availability, along with some wine trends.

Excerpts:

What made you introduce the concept of a wine dispenser in India?
Kewadkar: Wine dispensers have been introduced to give people the freedom to try more wines before they decide which ones they like. The dispenser allows one to try as little as 30ml and enjoy the experience of tasting various varietals in small quantities, before deciding which one they they prefer or would like to pair with which course of the meal. This gives one the chance to also learn about different vairents and understand wine in a fun way without feeling intimated by the presence of a third person.

What sort of benefits can these dispensers bring to the market and how well do you think it will be accepted in the industry?
Kewadkar: The dispenser hopefully will get even non wine’s drinkers to try a few varietal because they want to play with a new gadget. The whole “try before you buy” idea will see more people coming forward. If people feel encouraged to taste and understand wine, in the long run it will help the category grow. At present wine drinkers are the smallest segment in India. With an innovation like the dispenser, there is opportunity that this will change and give the industry a big boost.

How will customers benefit from this?
Kewadkar: The idea behind the dispenser was to make wines less intimidating. Get people in a way to interact with the machine and figure out what suits their palate. The dispenser acts like the consumers personal sommelier encouraging one to try and understand wines. So it is a great tool for educating and and creating awareness about this magnificent drink. Enabling customers to buy and pay for as little as 30ml v/s paying for a full glass which is 120 ml.

How have you seen people’s taste evolving in India when it comes to wines?
Kewadkar: The major consumption of wine in India is still as an aperitif. From the point of view of the Indian palate, the preference is still towards sweeter, less acidic wines when it comes to White wines and softer well rounded Red wines and Bold/Tannic wines. The off dry Rose is quite popular. The Cabernet Sauvignon is another varietal people have started going for. To pair with some of the Indian Cuisine, red wine is a good choice as it can take some level of spice owing to the structure of wine and make it a very enjoyable experience.
