Plumbers, like all tradespeople, rely on their tools to get the job done. While traditional plumbing tools like wrenches and pipes are essential, modern technology has given rise to new tools that can make the plumber's life easier. One of the most important of these tools is a cell phone. In this blog, we'll discuss the top 5 ways plumbers can use their cell phones to make their work easier, more efficient and more profitable.
1) Access to Information
One of the most important ways plumbers can use their cell phones is to access information. There are countless plumbing-related apps available that can help plumbers diagnose problems, find solutions, and order parts. Some of these apps even offer instructional videos that can help plumbers get up to speed on the latest techniques and technologies.
2) Communicate with Customers
A plumber's job often involves traveling to different job sites and communicating with customers. With a cell phone, plumbers can easily keep in touch with customers and keep them updated on the status of their repair or installation. This can help to build trust and foster better relationships with customers.
Another key benefit of having a cell phone as a plumber is navigation. Many smartphones come with GPS and map applications that can help plumbers find their way to job sites and keep track of their travels. This can help to reduce the amount of time spent on the road and increase the amount of time spent on actual work.
4) Take Photos and Videos
Plumbers often need to document their work for insurance and liability reasons. With a cell phone, plumbers can easily take photos and videos of their work, which can serve as evidence in the event of a dispute. Photos and videos can also be used to showcase their work to potential customers.
5) Manage Invoices and Payments
Finally, plumbers can use their cell phones to manage their finances. There are many invoicing and payment processing apps available that can help plumbers keep track of their earnings and expenses. These apps can also help plumbers create and send invoices to customers, making the billing process much simpler and more streamlined.
If you are a plumber and you use your phone consistently throughout your day as mentioned above, consider using a Prox PRD® phone reminder device and never forget your phone again. The PRD will reliably alert you at about 50 feet to 150 feet before you drive off without your phone. And as a bonus, the PRD comes with a selfie clicker so you can take those hard to take pictures behind the kitchen sink with ease. As a plumber, you may find the Prox PRD is a valuable asset
and another tool to keep you productive each and every day.
A cell phone can be a valuable tool for plumbers. Whether it's for accessing information, communicating with customers, navigation, documenting work or managing finances, a cell phone can make a plumber's work easier, more efficient, and more profitable. So, if you're a plumber and don't already have a smartphone, now might be the time to invest in one… and a Prox PRD.
