Telephone, Email, Morse Code, or Smoke Signal

I’m a pretty organized person, and when I worked at a sign shop, having my ducks in a row leading up to Black Friday was the key to surviving the signage holiday rush! I’ve seen people lose important information and customer surveys, forcing them to go back and remeasure or contact the customer for details they’ve already been given. This causes the shop to lose money on a second survey, or worse still, appear unprofessional to the customer, thus losing the job altogether.
Don’t fall victim to disorganized chaos this busy season. Spike not only helps you save time and money on your surveys but can also help you to keep your projects on track.
I’ve seen sign shops use a variety of techniques to stay organized on projects, from clipboards hung on the wall for each job, to digital tools like KeyedIn and Casper. Spike supports your project management technique of choice, by allowing you to categorize projects into folders and rename individual photos.
Separating your site surveys into individual Spike folders within the mobile app and Cloud makes them easy to locate and share, and ensures you’ll never let a key survey suddenly disappear. Additionally, if multiple people are using one Cloud account, it’s easy for them to identify the project and pick up where you left off.
We’re in the thick of the busy season, so here are my top tips for organizing your Spike photos and measurements into folders:
