National Swimming Pool Foundation launches app for service pros

The new Pool Service Manager app from the National Swimming Pool Foundation allows service professionals with an iPhone or iPad to more efficiently manage their business.

The app will allow service pros to schedule and record services, repairs and chemical test results; calculate and record water balance, chemical dosage, volume and flow rates; create and email shopping lists to make supply pick ups more efficient; share work history and billing information with their main office and schedule recurring visits.

Pool Service Manager app purchasers also receive "NSPF Digital News" keeping them abreast of emerging issues and solutions.

"Running a service business is hard work," said Alex Antoniou, NSPF director of education. "Our new Pool Service Manager app is the perfect tool to make their jobs easier and more profitable."

Service companies can download a free trial version to devices that have upgraded to the free iOS 5.0 or later operating system. To unlock all the app features and tools, the Pool Service Manager app is subscription-based for just $15.99 a month or $159.99 for a yearly subscription and includes all the premium tools pool pros expect from the National Swimming Pool Foundation.

"One subscription allows use of the app on multiple devices in the same iTunes account. iCloud can synchronize the App between devices," Antoniou said. The data collected on the app can be simply exported as a comma separated file (CSV) to programs such as Excel and Access.
