Setting up services

Once you have compiled a general list of services for your company and divided all the cars into categories, you can begin to configure services.

Control365 allows you to store a different set of services and prices for these services for each category. Setting up services for each category allows you to significantly optimize the interface for placing orders. For example, you can remove the services associated with cleaning the trunk for the “Minibus” category and add cleaning services for the passenger seats.

For each service, you can configure the multiplicity in several ways, which allows you to increase the price of the service by the desired number of times, depending on its value:

  • Standard display of services (without multiplicity);
  • Multiplicity selection with buttons;
  • Increasing and decreasing the multiplicity using the “+” and “-“ buttons, with setting the step.

You can also configure manual entry of the price of the service and combine the services into groups.

We illustrate these possibilities with a few examples.

Often, customers are asked not to wash all the floor mats, but only two front wheels or to clean not all the wheels, but only two front wheels, and some owners or managers go to meet them and indicate the price not per 4 pieces, but per unit. In this case, it is advisable to configure these services with a choice of multiplicity buttons (from 1 to 4), in order to issue this service with one click. The service allows you to add from 2 (often used in cases where you often need to double the price of the service) to 8 (very rarely used in car washes) multiplicity buttons.

Sometimes the price of some car wash services is set for one item or piece, and the number of such items or pieces can be a large number. An example would be the price of cleaning a bitumen from a car body element or dry cleaning a bus seat.

In this case, we recommend that you select the multiplicity selection using the “+” and “-“ buttons. This method does not allow you to select the multiplicity with one click, but it makes it possible to value it in a larger range. In addition, you can configure the step with which the multiplicity value will increase or decrease.

As mentioned above, the service allows you to configure the input of the cost of the service manually. This is useful in cases where the price for services varies or is negotiable. Thus, the services of “Dry Cleaning” and “Polishing the body” are often set up at those car washes where these services are not specialized, and the cost of work is determined individually by the master.

Sometimes a significant optimization of the administrator’s work can be obtained by combining the services in a group, a good example of using this feature is the setting of the services “Dry Cleaning” and “Polishing” for deteyling centers, where these services are “on stream” and the price is fixed for each element.

In addition, the program allows you to store separate price lists for contractors with their division of cars into categories, a set of services and their settings.
