Bulwarkâ€™s new smartphone software will help technicians save costly resources.
Bulwark Exterminating bought all its technicians iPhone and Droid smartphones for Christmas in preparation for its nationwide launch of new proprietary software that will save both gas and paper.
All 11 service branches are scheduled one by one to be operating on the new system by spring of 2011, and getting smart phones in to the hands of the technicians is the next vital step. The branches in Phoenix and Mesa, Ariz., are already operating with the new software. Las Vegas and St. George, UT are scheduled to begin the first week in January.
â€œItâ€™s our way of saying â€˜thank youâ€™ to our technicians, as well as making our company more resourceful,â€ said Adam Seever, Owner of Bulwark. â€œThese phones belong to our technicians.Â We know they will be used for company purposes, but weâ€™re excited about giving our technicians the new phones that they will be able to keep as their own.â€
Bulwark technicians currently make an average of one trip per day to their assigned branch office to drop off the invoices from that dayâ€™s route.Â Since they will be able to upload their invoices to the main servers via their smartphones, they will only need to stop by their branch office about once a week.
â€œWeâ€™ll be saving thousands of sheets of paper and hundreds of gallons of gas on daily basis,â€ said Seever. â€œThis isnâ€™t just a faster way of doing business. Itâ€™s a cleaner and more resourceful way to provide pest control services to our customers.â€
