Hey guys,

 

I have no interest or experience around window cleaning, however I do with I.T and I have been asked by someone I know to develop a spreadsheet to help him manage and keep track of his window cleaning business. He has around 300 clients and they're all local but I don't know much more than that!

 

What can do to make it work perfectly for him? And what would be the things that make keeping records really easy?

 

This guy is not very confident with computers either so he needs something that will be really easy and simple to use, but I want it to be professional. So I thought I'd come to the experts for advice!

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

That road and the almost identical one next door has your name on it..will swap for the 75 quid houseclear.png

You can do the backs by car if you want but the fronts are all on the outside of the road so you need to walk itclear.png

Personally, if I was going to bother having my round on the computer, I would just use any one of the existing software. But I just like to keep it simple using index cards, as it allows me to easily move people to different rounds/days, and I can carry them in the van as I go.

 

But if I was to have a spreadsheet I'd keep it simple as possible with as few fields to fill in as possible.

 

Basic details with a 'hover over'. Name, address, phone #,

Frequency- Monthly, bi monthly, etc

Cost

Date of last clean

Paid? Tick box

 

Simples.
