What is diary management software?

For busy small business owners, keeping track of their diaries is not an easy task. It can mean the difference between being prepared and missing important opportunities. Even if you are organised, you may end up losing precious time if you aren't planning your days well. Diary management software makes the job a lot easier for a field service business, as it automatically backs up your data so that you can access it anywhere in real-time. Here are some of the benefits of diary management software:


Team tracking & route scheduling

Powered Now’s team tracking software is a location tracker which lets you know where your team should be as well as where they actually are, using our GPS tracker app built right into the standard Powered Now software.

You can see all your team and appointments on a map and use our chat feature to stay in touch.

You can also use time tracking software to check when your team has logged in and out of jobs.

For any growing business, it is essential to know where your team are, in that way, you can be sure when they are on the job. Existing vehicle tracking solutions tend to be both expensive and overkill for many small businesses. Using Powered Now will allow you to see your team’s movements including a track of where they have been, their speed, the date and more. The same map also shows appointments. 

If you use team tracking software you will be able to:

  • Know where your team are at all times with the location tracker
  • Dispatch the nearest team member to emergency appointments
  • Team members can explicitly check-in and out of appointments
  • See the location of team members and the location of appointments on one map
  • Identify any abuse of vans from the speed and track that they take

Send reminders and confirmations to customers

There are many benefits to sending automatic reminders to your customers when using diary management software. Automated appointment reminders are important for many trade businesses. They help customers remember their appointments and are a time-saving feature. Providing customers with this service can save you time and frustration while also increasing revenue. These reminders can be sent to your customers in various ways. Some systems send a message through email to your customers, which can be tailored to your preferences. Others use SMS reminders. With Powered Now, you can use both, auto texts and emails. 

Whatever the method you choose, these reminders can be highly effective for reducing no-shows and wrong time arrivals that can affect your engineers’ work schedules. Most people are guilty of forgetting about their appointments. Unfortunately, this is quite common in the modern world. This can make a world of difference for your trade business.
