Tip #5: The Right Questions to Ask
Aerial technology has been in place since 2008 and it just keeps getting better. Gathering roof measurements traditionally was a time-consuming process prone to mistakes such as mathematical errors or simple human error, but has now become a quick, easy and reliable technology. Many contractors now rely on the service for accurate measurements, professional presentations and efficient production planning.
Sales and marketing efforts have also benefited greatly from aerial imagery and measurements. In fact, many sales processes have changed substantially as contractors can now share aerial photos, drawings and measurements of almost any structure with home and building owners. Consumers see this as a clear differentiator. When they can see their property, and use the drawings and measurements for reference, it brings a whole new level of professionalism to your company’s sales process.
Questions to Ask About Aerial Measurements:
- Does the software integrate aerial imagery and measurements?
- Are aerial imagery and measurements easily stored and accessed within the software?
- Does the software provide do-it-yourself measuring tools?
