The days when people opted for off-the-shelf, all-in-one software solutions are gone. As people become more technologically savvy, they are driving the demand for specialized software apps that meet their unique challenges.

One of the added benefits of niche apps (besides being able to solve specific problems) is that they are often cheaper than all-in-one software solutions. Instead of paying for a range of features and functionalities that the user doesn’t need, the user can simply integrate the add-ons and features they need without having to pay for costly development solutions.

As a roofing contractor, you are probably familiar with a range of apps that promise to be a one-stop solution for all your needs. After buying and installing the software, however, it’s easy to see that you will only be using one or two of the features (and that you will have trouble integrating the application with other systems and programmes that you are using).

RoofSnap, which pioneered mobile roof measurement software, is a prime example of software that is offering specialized roofing technology features. Our technical specialists are from the roofing industry and we understand the challenges and obstacles that roofers face. It is for this reason that we have launched a range of new features and functionalities. Some of the recent developments include the following:

API Integration

RoofSnap has launched a Zapier integration that allows users to easily connect multiple apps through their API’s. This integration will allow users to automate the creation of a project in RoofSnap, eliminating the need for double entry of customer data. Instead of trying to find one software that touches on a number of solutions, a business can now connect RoofSnap to the applications they use to ensure better workflow.

Zapier has over 1000 apps and some of the apps that are commonly used by RoofSnap users include the following:

  • Industry apps: JobNimbus, SalesRabbit, CompanyCam, Repsly
  • CRMs: SalesForce, Trello, HubSpot, Zoho CRM, OnePage CRM, Act! Essentials, Google Contacts
  • Customer Support: Zendesk, Freshdesk
  • Accounting: Quickbooks (Online), Freshbooks, Zoho Books
  • SMS & Email: Gmail, ActiveCampaign, Infusionsoft, ClickSend SMS
  • Card Processing: Square
  • Calendar: Google Calendars
  • Random: Dropbox, Google Sheets

So, a business or roofing contractor that creates a contact in JobNimbus can have that project created automatically in RoofSnap to include all contact details, Additionally, when a prospect in SalesRabbit is created, a project in RoofSnap can be created to include the prospects contact information automatically.

These are only some of the exciting developments at RoofSnap. For more information about our specialized roof measurement software, contact us today.
