Irvine, CA (PRWEB) January 9, 2007 –-
For commercial and industrial movers, the estimating process has been fraught with perils. Should the rep performing the job walk try to generate a probably flawed estimate right then and there through the clipboard and calculator method? Or should the rep forfeit the advantage of promptness to input his hand-scrawled data into a kludgy spreadsheet back at the office and then go back to present a proposal to the client at a second appointment? A new software application, QuickQube, offers the first automated estimating tool that eliminates these dilemmas by making it possible to generate accurate commercial moving quotes on the spot (http://www.solutionsonthego.com).
“Since a typical rep’s closing ratio is twice as high when presenting the bid in person, QuickQube enables him to book more moves by eliminating the second trip,” says Dave Dunlap, Vice-president of Solutions On the Go, Inc., the Irvine, CA company that created QuickQube for Tablet PCs. “And there’s also a ‘wow factor’ in the on-the-spot quote that leads to more proposals being accepted. For the moving company, the checklists and industry savvy built into QuickQube, not to mention the guaranteed accuracy of its math, mean fewer costly errors and omissions.”
Dunlap notes that mobile applications designed for household moves can’t really handle the complications of commercial moves, such as elevators and elevator transfers, assembly and disassembly of modular furniture or racking, multiple origins and destinations and so on. QuickQube can generate quotes according to six different estimating methods: by cubes, dolly loads, truck loads, weight, cost per item or time per item.
The expertise incorporated into QuickQube will undoubtedly give many moving companies the confidence to round out the seasonality of household moves with a year-round stream of office and industrial moves, Dunlap says. It also means that a newly hired rep with little experience can create quotes that are as accurate as those of industry veterans.
