Customized Software Simplifies Blue Kangaroo Packoutz Operations
Blue Kangaroo Packoutz franchisees have the tools they need, including customized software, to operate efficiently
One of the many benefits of partnering with BELFOR Franchise Group is a long history of knowing what franchise owners need, when they need it — and going the extra mile to help them thrive. That’s definitely the case with operations, where the BELFOR Franchise Group team works with every Blue Kangaroo Packoutz franchise owner to make sure they are well positioned to operate a growing business from day one.
A prime example is the operational software every Blue Kangaroo Packoutz franchise uses to run the business. From back-office functions, such as scheduling and payroll, to tracking elements that keep tabs on every item and every job, the various software elements allow the franchise owner and their team to focus on supporting customers, says Mike Case general manager of the first Blue Kangaroo Packoutz location.
Contents inventory program meets many needs
“The software we use for contents inventory is a very robust program,” Case explains. “There’s some great benefits, including the ability to go in and inventory a product, to photograph that product from multiple angles and to categorize that product. So, you know it’s more than a sofa. You know where it came from in the house, and where it’ll need to go back to when we have finished the restoration. It also allows us to tag the items properly.”
When items come to the Blue Kangaroo Packoutz contents restoration franchise storage area, the software also allows for scanning, meaning that the item can be identified and tracked through every stage of restoration. And when it’s time to go back, Case adds, “We can look up that item and say ‘that came from the china hutch, fourth shelf to the far left side and we can put it right back there. When the customer moves back into their house, it’s right where they left it.”
Just one aspect of industry-leading support
There’s so much more that every Blue Kangaroo Packoutz franchise owners tap into as part of the BELFOR Franchise Group, one of the nation’s largest networks of cleaning and restoration brands, Case says.
“You have relationships with the other franchise owners, so you can all learn from and support each other,” he says. “You get world-class training, intensive training not only on the contents industry, but also all the software packages, the vaulting process and the packing process — every aspect you can think of involved in the contents industry, from how to provide that initial estimate, scoping the work, packing the product back and forth, everything in between.”
