You could have a digital business card. Nothing for crew members to carry around. You get a text alert anytime someone requests a digital business card plus you instantly have the customers contact info.

It also gives the impression that your business is organized and larger than it really is which will help with gaining more customers.

Yes! We have cards in all the trucks in the event a customer or passer byer asks for one.

It's worked GREAT for me this last year. Got tons of calls from it. Plans start at $14.95/month with no contracts

That's what I do now, but I was thinking it would give him a little more of a manager feeling without the manager pay.
