November 22, 2010 // Franchising.com // ProTect Painters franchise owners are benefiting from their state-of-the-art, fully integrated, web-based technology system.
"We have created a mobile office for our franchisees," said ProTect Painters Founder, Wayne Scherger. "No matter where they are our owners can track leads that come through our Call Center all the way through to completed jobs."
The Protect Painters national Call Center answers owners' phones and schedules appointments. A real time lead source and estimate tracking system is available to franchise owners.
"When I'm out in the community networking, marketing the business, and meeting with customers, I have all my data at my fingertips," said Jamie Cox, ProTect Painters franchise owner in Boston, MA. "For example, if a customer has a question about a specific cost on the job estimate, I don't have to say, 'I'll get that for you when I get back to the office.' I have access to the information online right from my smartphone."
"The computing and interconnectivity of our technology system has made our franchise owners more productive, helped to convert more leads into painting jobs, and enhanced our customer service," added Scherger.
The ProTect Painters franchise opportunity is a home-based business with a modest initial investment and low overhead. Franchise owners manage the business and their crews do the painting. Franchisees provide interior and exterior painting serving both the residential and light commercial markets. ProTect Painters owners enjoy a flexible workweek schedule.
