    Hi everyone,

    We have officialy started development on a brand new service that supports you regarding your rounds planning, payments organisation and anything else regarding your window cleaning business.

    it will be a website with an app attached, meaning you can use this service anywhere, anytime!

    whilst we're in production we would really like to get everyone's ideas on what you would want if you we're to use this service.
    the more ideas we get the better this will be!

    also if you think you would consider signing up (you get a two week trial period to see if you like it)
    please let us know so we can see how many people would be interested in joining.

    thanks again for all your support whilst we're doing this, stick with us! :)

    Send me a personal message if you can guy's, we don't want to share too much info with any competition out there ;)

    You will need to give people more than 2 weeks trial especially at the beginning to find bugs etc .
    You should be looking to give a minimum trial of at least 6 weeks to maybe 8 weeks .

    Also I reckon you could build a texting part of the app to let your customers know when your due as I find it a ball ache
    Texting them all and having o go through my phone book so if you choose what day and the customers you need to txt just click a button that says send txt and jobs a good en .

    I like arc idea of texting people, this would be great if an app on the phone!

    I think I would be intrested

    Where is the data kept tho, on the phone or online in a cloud, am quite skeptical about keeping data like that online...

    there is already a progrram called Textmagic messanger that you download to you pc, fill in all the customers numbers, you can put them into groups, like week 1 day 1 etc, and then you can type a template, i think 6 clicks and you can send a message to all the people you want, then when they text back to it, it goes straight to your phone!

    the texting idea is one of the big features we will be implementing into the software, among others :)
    the app wont need to be online for you to use it, you will be able to edit things on the go and then when you reach a signal it will automatically (optional) upload to your account online :)

    some great ideas guys, keep them coming!
