HCS is a family run Window Cleaning business, based in Bolton, Lancashire. For over 40 years the business has served the local community. It has many domestic and commercial customers ranging from large housing estates to local business shops and pubs.
I explained that when he updated the customers details on the mobile, he didn't have to do it when he got home. As he had quite a few employees each was given their own log in details and password, so midas was able to distinguish between each user. Each of his employees had their own smartphones, so Chris pays them a little extra each week to cover their phone bill.
Midas sorted out all Chris's invoices; At the touch of a button he can print or email invoices or even print multiple invoices in one go. Midas allowed Chris and his employees to work on different streets and estates that are miles apart. In the evening, he logs on to midas to see how he and his employees have managed that day. Cash collecting was always an issue with his original books and Excel sheets. When it was windy, raining and really cold, the page would be flapping from back to front. It was difficult making notes that the customer had paid whilst it was raining, because sometimes the ink would run making the writing illegible. Chris uses a water proof cover for his iPhone, it protects as well as allows him to use midas in all weathers.
HCS has been using midas since its initial concept in 2006. Midas has grown up a lot since those early days, its much more easier to learn and use. A lot of the functions are self explanatory, but nothing beats using it on a daily basis. Chris has said numerous times, that he cant understand why other Window Cleaners are not using midas.
There are other products out there, some are good, but some are dated and do not have the same amount of functionality as midas. Midas wont stop working if you upgrade your computer, it runs in a browser and is based on cloud technology; so you never have to worry about uninstalling and reinstalling midas. But unfortunately, most Window Cleaners are still old school, they still prefer to use note books to store their rounds in and then they go home to a frustrated hour or two of Excel.
