Also, Skimmer makes communication a breeze, allowing you to connect easily with techs on the go, ensuring everyone is on the same page.

This includes chemical readings, service history across multiple locations and bodies of water, gate codes, and more. Having all this information at your fingertips saves you time and keeps your operations running smoothly. When it comes to onboarding, Skimmer has you covered. Techs can start using the app on day one because it's specifically designed with pool pros in mind. This means no more struggling with complicated software or wasting time on extensive training.

Skimmer's ease of use eliminates the stress and frustration often associated with managing your pool service business. Its intuitive design and features allow you to work smarter, not harder, and focus on delivering the high-quality services your customers deserve.

3. Purpose-built just for pool pros


Skimmer stands out among other software solutions because it's purpose-built just for pool pros like you. Unlike general field service software that services fields like electricians and plumbers, Skimmer is solely dedicated to the pool industry.

Our features, improvements, and user interface are all tailored to the day-to-day needs of pool business owners and technicians and no one else. This means you won't have to wade through complicated software with features and functionality you don't need. Skimmer eliminates wasted time on repetitive and time-consuming tasks, such as route scheduling, paper billing, and customer follow-up.

By removing these tedious chores, you'll have more time to focus on growing your business and doing more of what you enjoy. So, why settle for a one-size-fits-all approach when you can have a platform tailored specifically for you? By choosing Skimmer, you're choosing a software solution that truly understands your needs and works tirelessly to help you succeed. 

4. Growth without compromise


One of the primary concerns for many pool professionals is maintaining the same level of quality service as they expand their business. This is a common concern and growing pain for all service-based businesses — not being able to provide the same caliber of service and potentially harming their reputation. 

We understand this struggle and have designed Skimmer with features to help you grow without compromising the quality of your service. With Skimmer, you can expand your business and maintain exceptional service simultaneously. Our customer communications and tech accountability tools, including Service Reports, checklists for techs, and automated invoicing with Skimmer Billing, all contribute to upholding the high standards you've set for your business.

The Service Report email, for instance, enables you and your customer to monitor the work performed by your techs, ensuring they meet your expectations. This level of oversight not only helps maintain or improve the quality of service but also boosts customer satisfaction, ultimately contributing to the growth of your business.

5. Improved customer communication


Tools like the Service Report and Broadcast Emails truly set Skimmer apart by empowering pool pros to improve customer communication, reduce complaints, and enhance the quality of service. With these features, you can streamline and organize customer records all within a single app, making your operations more efficient and responsive.

The Service Report lets you keep customers informed about the work performed on their pools, giving them peace of mind and fostering trust in your services. By providing detailed, transparent communication, you can prevent misunderstandings and ensure your clients are always satisfied with the service they receive.

Broadcast Emails are another powerful tool in Skimmer's arsenal. They allow you to easily communicate important information to your customers, such as price changes, special offers, new pool tech introductions, or general marketing emails. Keeping your customers in the loop can strengthen relationships, build loyalty, and ultimately grow your business.

Skimmer's emphasis on effective customer communication fosters a strong connection between you and your clients. By using Skimmer, you'll provide exceptional service and create lasting relationships that will propel your pool business to new heights.

6. Better work-life balance


Skimmer is all about helping you achieve a better work-life balance. With features like route scheduling, easy payment options, and tech accountability, you'll spend less time in the office performing tedious manual tasks and more time doing what you love.

Our route scheduling feature saves you time and reduces wasted gas on non-optimized routes, allowing you to be more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient. Skimmer Billing streamlines your invoicing and payment processes, ensuring you get paid promptly and fairly for your services. Our tools help you spot problem pools or customers who may not be willing to pay what you deserve, so you can invest your time and energy where it matters most.

With Skimmer, you'll have more time to spend at home, work on growing your business, and focus on servicing customers who truly value your expertise.
