Posted by Andrew Greess on Jun 21, 2021
Would you like to reduce downtime, reduce repair expenses, reduce ticked off customers, reduce problems and headaches? If so, then we have 4 words for you Pest Control Equipment Standardization.
Standardizing equipment has enabled Southwest Airlines to be successful every year. Southwest only uses one type of airline - a 737 - and because of this they are able to ensure that they have ample backup.
If a pilot, attendant, plane or other issue arises, they have backups that they can call and do not need training. If a Maintenance issue comes up, they have the parts and everyone knows how to fix it because everyone is trained on that plane.
Everyone knows the standard operating procedures and is trained on one type of plane so everyone knows what to do and how to respond to any issues or problems. This saves Southwest Airlines time and money, is more efficient and offers better service to their customers.
This can do the same for your pest control company. Things to standardize can be Power sprayers/Vehicles, Backpack Sprayers, Hand Sprayers
How should you start standardizing equipment? We suggest starting small with a few key components that can have a big impact such as filters. Another idea is Quick Disconnects. By standardizing these across your trucks then spray guns are interchangeable and a leaking gun doesn’t disrupt schedules.
Another important thing to do is create clear equipment standards for hand sprayers, backpack sprayers, tool boxes, power sprayers, etc. This way as obsolete equipment is replaced, the fleet becomes standardized.
Start today by examining equipment to find opportunities. Even a little standardization can go a long way toward improved service and profitability.
