A comparison of two of the leading companies you should be considering for your Maid Service.
You’re a Maid Service owner who is considering between ZenMaid and Jobber. We’ve written a quick article on why you should use ZenMaid.
Before anyone gets the idea this is some sort of “hate” article, please know Jobber is a great software that helped pioneer our industry, and for that we are grateful. It simply isn’t the best option for residential cleaning companies in the 21st century.
Fortunately for Maid Service owners, where Jobber falls short and isn’t specialized, ZenMaid is.
Check it out:
ZenMaid – Built by maid service owners for maid service owners
ZenMaid was created by Amar Ghose, who previously ran Fast Friendly Spotless in Orange County, CA. Since starting ZenMaid Amar has personally spoken with over 2000 maid service owners like you, and does so daily on the ZenMaid Mastermind (a free community for Maid Service owners like you).
Jobber was not created for Maid Service owners specifically, and just as importantly, it was not built BY Maid Service owners. We’re the first to point out their tool used to be the industry standard but ZenMaid’s specialized software just makes more sense for home cleaning businesses.
ZenMaid vs Jobber – Whose recommended by the Best in the Cleaning Industry?
There’s a reason that ZenMaid has been consistently endorsed by virtually every well known cleaning consultant. Whereas they have not been able to do the same for Jobber.
You may have heard about ZenMaid from Debbie Sardone, Sharon Tinberg, Steve & Jean Hanson, Pam Washington, Mike Campion, Katie Pearse, or Martha Woodward.
We’re regularly mentioned by the top cleaning minds in the industry because we’re specialized to help owners succeed.
But wait there’s more!
Free concierge onboarding so you don’t waste time getting started – Not offered by Jobber
ZenMaid is the only software for Maid Services that offers true concierge onboarding. If you’re using Jobber or another online system, you can send us your login information and we’ll move as much information over as we can.
We understand that getting setup on Jobber was probably a nightmare but it’s no problem with ZenMaid. Make your move today and we’ll have you up and running very, very quickly.
No outside investors, meaning 100% focus on YOU
ZenMaid has taken on 0 (zero) outside investment since starting in 2013. The only people we answer to is you, our customers. Jobber has been taken over and no longer is accountable to only their customers. They have to answer to investors, analysts, and consultants, where ZenMaid makes decisions based solely on what’s best for our clients, the 200+ cleaning companies that use us across the Globe.
Automated Communication with customers
No matter how you run your Maid Service business, you have to finalize your schedule somewhere or you’d quickly go out of business. And if you do it in the ZenMaid calendar we’ll automatically confirm appointments, remind your customers of their cleanings, follow up after, and reach out automatically if they leave you.
Jobber might help with one of those, ZenMaid does them all. Automatically.
Your employees will love the new communication clarity
At ZenMaid we consistently hear that both cleaners and customers love when a Maid Service switches from Jobber. The convenience the system adds for ALL parties involved is second to none.
Your employees can choose to receive text updates, detailed email work orders, or can login to see their schedules. It’s fully customizable so they only see what you want!
Jobber might be helpful when it comes to managing your cleaning business but ZenMaid is designed to do even more, including to help you market and grow.
The ZenMaid Instant Booking form is designed beautifully for your business so you can turn your website visitors into paying, recurring customers.
While Jobber offers reporting, it’s not as specialized for your Maid Service as ZenMaid’s provided metrics. On the ZenMaid platform you’ll find out first where your leads are coming from and where to invest your marketing dollars.
Our specialized reporting breaks down the exact numbers you need to pay attention to DAILY to keep a running, healthy Maid Service business.
After that we’ll show you how many recurring customers you’re getting, how much they’re paying you, and if they’re leaving you, all built in automatically to ZenMaid. If Jobber isn’t easy enough for you to find the information you’ll need then you’ll love our solution.
Work with experts
ZenMaid is run by cleaning industry experts. You know Amar, our CEO, who has run a cleaning business and consulted with hundreds of Maid Service owners. Additionally, each of our employees goes through Maid Service owner trainings from the industry consultants mentioned above.
When you need help with ZenMaid or your business, our team knows your details in and out so you get truly personalized advice and support that designed to maximize your success.
Jobber can’t say the same.
