CompanyCam is easy to use. And no, we’re not the only ones who think that:“Even our less tech-savvy and tech-opposed started using it after they saw how easily the product installation and use was.” —Josh Laica, Rick’s Custom Fencing & Decking
But there are a lot of features in the app, and it can be hard to know which are most important for you. Not to mention, a person in HVAC will probably use CoCam differently than someone working in restoration. And a foreman’s favorite features won’t be the same as an office administrator’s. But there are some constants.
So regardless of the trade you’re in or the role you have, here are five features you need to know about.
1. Project Feed
Your project feed is a real-time compilation of all the projects happening across your company. Think of your Facebook feed, but without the memes and politics. Photos are tagged by date and location, automatically filling into the corresponding project so your team never misses a beat.
The best part? You don’t need to worry about losing photos or space on your phone because everything is saved and sent to the cloud automatically. And with unlimited storage, we won’t ask you to upgrade or buy more multiple times a day. (Anybody else tired of that iCloud notification?)
2. Project Timelines
Project timelines allow you to keep coworkers and clients up to date on job progress without all the extra phone calls and emails. Simply share a link with whoever needs it, and they’ll be able to see photos roll in as soon as they’re added to a project. I bet you’re already thinking about what to do with the time you’re gonna get back.
“With CompanyCam, we’re able to bring the customer‘on top of the roof.’ We share a project link with the customer so they can see live updates of our progress, and the customer doesn’t have to worry about anything.” —Sean Drake, Arry’s Roofing Services
3. Before and After Camera
You did the work, and now it’s time to show it off. CompanyCam’s Before and After camera helps you compare projects from beginning to end. You can choose from different layouts and add your logo, making it simple to market your work on social media or your website.
4. Comments, Tags, and Drawings
Need to tell your crew where materials were dropped off? Or maybe you want to point out a sewer line to avoid. With CompanyCam, you can add comments, tags, and drawings to give your crew instructions or share necessary information. Now, everyone knows what needs to be done at every step in the process.
It’s time to say goodbye to temperamental Microsoft Word and clunky Google Docs. In CoCam, you can create photo reports that keep pictures, notes, and other project details organized in one clean, professional PDF. It’s never been easier to share photos and information with insurance adjusters, homeowners, and office admins.
There are a lot of other helpful features like document scanning, filters, voice notes, text snippets — we could go on and on. But if you’re just getting started with CoCam, the five above are a great jumping-off point.
