In 2022, more than 50 million workers quit their jobs. Companies like yours have felt the impact of that “great resignation” ever since: Attracting and keeping great employees is more challenging than ever, especially in field service industries. But your business is still full speed ahead, and you can’t afford to fall behind. So how can you do more with the staff you have now?

By leaning into solutions that show up to work. If you’re already using a CRM software like Service Assistant, you’re halfway there. But when you power up with automated marketing, customer self-service, call center solutions and AI chatbot sales, it’s like having an entire additional office staff at your disposal – without having to hire anyone else.

CAW AMACAW and AMA: Always Stay in Touch

Good customer communication is essential – it helps build trust, loyalty and lasting relationships. But it’s also time-consuming. Answering the phones, writing and sending marketing communications, and responding to customer requests in a timely manner can be full time jobs in and of themselves! With Customer Assistant Websites (CAW) and Automated Marketing Assistant (AMA), the software does the heavy lifting for you.

With a Customer Assistant Website, your virtual office is open all day, every day. Customers can access account information whenever they want to, reducing incoming phone calls and messages, saving you time and money, and improving their overall experience.

    With a CAW your customers can:

    • Safely and securely pay their bills and check their account information
    • Sign up for and manage auto- and pre-pay agreements
    • Make service requests, changes, and cancellations
    • Add new services to their account
    • Reach out with questions

    Like all of RealGreen’s solutions, CAW integrates seamlessly with SA5 so it will always reflect the most up-to-date information. It’s like adding another administrator to your office staff.

    CAW also works hand-in-hand with Automated Marketing Assistant, making customer outreach and prospect marketing easier than ever. AMA takes over the task of communicating with leads, customers, and lost customers by automatically sending timely, personalized, and effective marketing messages. After one simple setup, you have access to an entire library of customizable “set it and forget it” auto-generated communications. 

    Working seamlessly with SA5 and your CAW, AMA creates and sends communications personalized with information specific to each customer that is sent out based on triggers from daily data input from your production, office, and sales teams. It works in the background to effectively communicate in a way that you don’t always have time to, so you can focus on sales and service.

    ServiceBot: Always Selling

    ServiceBotWhen potential customers are ready to purchase, they want instant answers. And they’ll often go with the company that provides them with what they’re looking for the fastest. If you’re the first to respond, you’re more likely to land them as a customer.

    With ServiceBot, an AI-enabled chatbot that lives on your company’s website, you can close sales around the clock. Optimized for mobile users, ServiceBot meets customers where they are and guides them from estimation through payment. When customers click on your ServiceBot, it guides them through the quote and sales process with a brief text-based chat, asking them questions about their property and what they’re looking for, providing them with accurate estimates, customized program recommendations, and fast, seamless checkout. It’s fully branded to your company, using your logo, your photos, and your service categories. Customers don’t see “ServiceBot,” they see your business.

    By automating many of the difficult, time-consuming parts of sales, ServiceBot streamlines the sales process. It ensures quick response to inbound leads, makes sure there’s a standard set of probing questions for each prospect, records information for every lead, sends an instant proposal, and makes it easy for customers to buy and pay instantly. Think of ServiceBot as your virtual salesperson who never sleeps or takes a day off!

    Slingshot: Always Available

    slingshotWhen you’re literally in the weeds, answering the phone is the last thing on your mind — but it shouldn’t be. Every time you ignore a phone call or push it to voicemail, you could be losing business. Did you know:

    • 74% of customers go with whichever provider responds first 
    • 60% of customers will hang up after waiting just 60 seconds on hold 
    • 25% of sales calls come in after-hours and on weekends

    When you don’t have the staff – or the time – to answer incoming calls yourself, it’s time to outsource. That’s where Slingshot comes in. But Slingshot is not your average answering service. Not only can they answer calls around the clock to measure, qualify, sell, and schedule your customers, but they’re also integrated with RealGreen. The RealGreen + Slingshot integration saves you time and money by allowing Slingshot agents to push information directly into Service Assistant 5 including new leads, quotable, and no-sale leads.
