Long Term Commercial Scheduling

Just seeing how everyone schedules commercial contract work. We have having a hard time taking the work that we are contracted to do then getting it on to a calendar 6 months later. (Ex. we forgot to apply grub control to a commercial property that is contracted work that the property paid us to do. There was supposed to be 3 applications spring, summer, fall.) If it were just one property it would not be too hard but we have 250+ Commercial properties. Just trying to get an idea of what everyone else does.

I use a production hard card system. Everythings in Quickbooks and has a file in the drawer but they each get a hard card with all applications listed in order. Then they go into a box separated by zip code or area, and get done, marked on the card, billed and put in the back of the box.

When I am done with a round, I re separate all the cards and we start again.

I do this with 400 accounts.

I also keep a hard list of all clients and all work sold for the year in a binder.

Takes very little time and is triple redundant.

You lose a computer program and you've lost everything plus these things cost thousands of dollars and the learning curve blows.
