Phase 1 and 2 WorkCenter Implementation Complete-Check!!

With the exception of one (or two) franchises, our trainership has been trained and fully converted onto WorkCenter!!  Let the weather events begin!!  Now, that’s not to say it has all been smooth sailing.  For the most part it has been, but as in life, bumps in the road appear once in a while.  Most ...

See you tomorrow!!

Tomorrow and Saturday are shaping up to be full of interesting information for all franchises!  We have great vendors, terrific speakers and new applications on the verge of being launched!  Plus, it is always great to be around your peers and maybe gain new insight and breathe new energy into your franchise.

DryBook Mobile for all of the water jobs you are getting.  A streamlined audit needs to include the use of DBM.  This is directly from Servpro Industries.  The Servpronet website initially has left room for interpretation, but our official interpreter(Fred) has gotten the word directly from Gallatin that DryBook Mobile must be used for water ...

Oh boy!  We now have the second coming of the Polar Vortex!

She started it over ...

Here’s wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Please be safe in the snow!  Hope to see you all back here next week.

Moving Equipment

A number of franchises have been experiencing trouble moving equipment between rooms.  Unless you do it the correct way, you will lose the day of monitoring and the day of revenue for the equipment.  I have been speaking with IS and Tech Support in order to get the details down on the right way to ...

To all the doubters……..

I heard something very interesting, if not exciting, this afternoon!  Sometime in the next month, there will be a WorkCenter Training database made available to any franchise that is interested!!!!  This database will be available to those franchises wishing to dip their toes into the new web based Office and Marketing Center software.  You will ...
