SKIMMER QUARTERLY RELEASE REVIEW

Skimmer Product Release Summary - 2024 Q1

We're excited to share a recap of all the amazing features and enhancements we've rolled out in the past few months. These updates were designed to simplify your workflow, enhance customer communication, and empower you to focus on what matters most - delivering exceptional pool service.

What’s New?

Save time with the QBO integration in Skimmer Billing:

Skimmer Billing is an invoicing and payment management feature in Skimmer designed specifically for pool service businesses. It uses the data in your Skimmer account and lets you easily generate invoices to quickly bill for service, repairs, parts, and materials. The new QBO integration in Skimmer Billing allows a seamless sync between Skimmer and QuickBooks Online, eliminating manual data entry and ensuring real-time financial updates.

Benefits:

  • Save time: Customers who use Skimmer Billing save on average two hours a day, freeing them up to focus on growing their business.
  • Grow revenue: Flexible payment options improve cash flow, and automated workflows and recurring payments mean you’ll never forget to send an invoice or bill for a part.
  • Increase efficiency: Stop using two systems! Skimmer Billing makes managing all parts of your pool service business a breeze from scheduling and invoicing to payment collection and reporting. 
  • Deliver a seamless customer experience: Skimmer’s all-in-one solution creates a seamless, digital experience your customers will love.

Additional Enhancements

Quotes
  • Previously, accessing a customer's quotes meant navigating to the dedicated "Quotes" section. We've streamlined this process by adding quotes directly to the customer profile. This means you now have a more comprehensive view of your customer's activity without switching between sections, saving you valuable time and effort.

  • You can now easily add products and work orders directly into quotes for a smoother workflow Invoices

Invoices

We are excited to announce a significant improvement to invoice generation. You can now directly add products and work orders to manually created invoices or when generating invoices in bulk, ensuring consistency across your billing process and minimizing the risk of errors.

…and much more!

  • Improved payment settings UI: Managing your online payments and processing transactions has never been easier! We've completely redesigned the payment settings page within Skimmer to prioritize clarity and user friendliness.

  • Improved data synchronization: In the pool service business, every minute counts! That's why we've optimized data synchronization within the Skimmer app, resulting in faster login times.

Mobile app update reminder

If you’re still using version 11.4 of our mobile app, you’d need to move to 11.5 to enable service texts and experience our new and improved fast first-time sync/
