What is the best routing, billing, and maintenance software?
Does anyone have any hands on experience of a good software system in this category that will handle routing, billing, maintenance etc. for a small construction debris clean up company.
I have had clients who used Summit Service System from Rittam Technologies (I think that is the vendor) and who liked it, but I do not have any direct experience with the product.
Bottomline Technologies makes modules that will leverage your current solutions and bring them together to make one comprehensive solution. I would look into the modules they offer when your taking different softwares and trying to get them to communicate together. IT's cheper and easier than buying new softwares.
In my opinion you would need a small ERP system or just some ERP modules.
If you are ok with them and everyone is handling them while the company grows, you can later add more modules. SME shouldn't get complex solutions. They need small starter systems they can build on later
Hi Stephen, you can have a look at MyYard (http://www.myyardsoftware.com/). It is an ERP software designed for the waste and scrap industry. It is aimed at skip companies for managing the pick up and drop off of skips and also for keeping track the value of the materials they transfer.
We are not in the construction business or debris cleanup. We are a IT asset disposition and recycling managing de-installs, transportation, resale and end of life recycling nationally.
Our company has worked with all different types of companies on their core infrastructure that your stuff will run on. There are a bunch of packages large and small for companies like yours; just make sure you have a good foundational server to run them on. One I have heard of is TruckMaster (http://www.truckmaster.com/trucking-software/) - not sure about pricing or feature comparisons, but it's a place to start. Good luck!
While there are some ready made solutions available, from our experience it is always efficient to build a custom solution meeting your business needs. Considering the third party tools available for like google maps, it should not take more than 3-4 months to build a MVP.
Hope this helps.
You should certainly look into the low-cost / no-cost AceRoute that leverage's Google's mapping technology. Find it here: http://www.aceroute.com/
