How Our Technology Helps Boost Franchise Partners’ Bottom Lines

When you’re building a business – even if it’s with an established brand like Dryer Vent Wizard – every second counts. Whenever you’re able to optimize operations and make your work more efficient, you’re putting money back in your pocket.

Although the Dryer Vent Wizard business model is inherently structured and cost-effective, we’re always looking for ways to make things even easier for our franchise partners. By leveraging user-friendly, impactful technology, we help further streamline operations for franchise partners and give them a sharp edge over the competition.

Here are just a few ways we use technology to foster smooth-running operations – minimizing franchise partners’ time and labor investment, while also maximizing customer satisfaction:

Diagnostic Inspections with Specialized Equipment

For a technical profession like dryer vent inspection, repair, and cleaning, some of our most important pieces of technology are our maintenance equipment, tools, and processes. While finding the best supplies and perfecting inspection and cleaning processes can be a substantial undertaking for an independent operator, Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees have access to all of these tools as soon as they sign the franchise agreement.

For a much lower initial investment than most franchise brands, Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees receive a protected territory, training, and a branded, fully-equipped van. Not only do they have access to years of expertise and comprehensively outlined operations, franchisees also have all the tools and equipment they’ll need for efficient dryer vent maintenance and successful business management, including tools and best practices for:

  • Full diagnostic inspections
  • Airflow measurement
  • Static pressure measurement
  • Debris and clog removal
  • Line sanitizing
  • Booster fan cleaning
  • Lint screen and trap cleaning

The Dryer Vent Wizard franchise opportunity provides franchise owners a turnkey business solution – minimizing startup time and giving them a significant competitive edge. With every technical aspect of the profession covered for you, all you have to worry about is getting your business up and running.

Efficient and Easy-to-Operate Mobile App

Our technology doesn’t just begin and end with the technical aspects of the job. Since there’s more to running an efficient business than just high-quality products and services, we also continually implement new technologies to optimize other business management operations.ScreenshotsOur mobile app is one of the most effective ways we accomplish this – providing our franchisees and their technicians with an easy-to-use, all-inclusive resource for organizing appointments. The app provides a breakdown of each day’s appointments, directions to job sites, and customer contact information. Technicians can even use the app offline, so they don’t need constant Internet access to keep track of everything.

In addition to keeping technicians organized, the app also helps franchise owners maximize sales. By providing easy access to the Dryer Vent Wizard “Check 10” service checklist, owner-operators or technicians can examine customers’ dryer vent systems and recommend add-on services onsite. The app also keeps track of past services, so owners can follow up with previous customers if they’re due for a recleaning.

Automatic Scheduling and Billing Sent Right to Your Phone

Dryer Vent Wizard’s mobile app also makes things much easier on customers, greatly improving satisfaction and retention.

Instead of having to wait for business hours to schedule an appointment, customers can simply call the Dryer Vent Wizard scheduling center from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST Monday through Friday and 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST on Saturday. Our scheduling center then forwards the contact information and appointment directly to the customer’s nearest Dryer Vent Wizard location. This quick and efficient process simplifies the scheduling process for customers, while also generating new business for franchisees.

Throughout each appointment, the app logs which services customers receive and bills accordingly. Technicians can then forward service requests to the scheduling center, send receipts to customers, and upload invoices to QuickBooks for a time and cost-efficient billing process for both franchisee and customer. And, since the process is automated, franchise partners don’t have to worry about tediously scouring pages of invoices or making costly billing errors.

From comprehensive, best-in-class technical tools and processes to our user-friendly app that streamlines business operations, Dryer Vent Wizard provides our franchise partners a cost, time, and labor-efficient business opportunity. This turnkey solution allows aspiring entrepreneurs – from any and all career backgrounds – to break into the booming home services industry.
