Small business owners know that every minute counts. And when your business includes ever-changing routes, with multiple stops over a relatively large geographic region, those minutes add up to getting more work done. This means more income coming in, during busy times.

Such was the case with ABC Pest Management. This locally owned company provides pest control services for residential and commercial properties in the Central New York area, including Onondaga, Oswego, and Cayuga counties, which encompass approximately 2,982 square miles.

Owners Rick and Mary Ciotti began using two years ago because they wanted to save time and money by optimizing their customer routes. Like many small businesses, ABC Pest Management has both regular and new customers, and routes change often. Flexibility in route planning made an immediate difference — particularly during their busiest times.

“We utilized the program in our busy season to route jobs effectively,” Mary explained. “We are a small office, and it probably saves my husband about 3-4 hours a week for routing and planning.”

Those hours added up when business was brisk. However, also like many companies, ABC Pest Management has slow periods and busy periods. The flexibility of made it very affordable for Rick and Mary to adjust their subscription as their needs fluctuated seasonally.

Rick and Mary agreed that those savings in both time and mileage add up for their small company, helping them compete. “The program worked extremely well,” Mary said. “We’d highly recommend it to other businesses.”
