2018 was an exciting year for WorkWave – from a transformational acquisition to a new CEO who is leading the charge into WorkWave’s next phase of growth, the events of 2018 have positioned WorkWave for another year of company success, innovative solutions and an exciting culture. Let’s take a look back at 2018’s company-wide highlights. First Quarter One of the major highlights of 2018 was WorkWave’s acquisition of Cube Six, Inc., the provider of ServMan…

WorkWave PestPac is currently used by a majority of the PCT Top 100 list of pest control companies – some valued in the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. After working with many of these large, enterprise-level pest control companies, WorkWave understood that these companies require a different support approach than a single license owner operator. With this in mind, our company recently developed new teams and initiatives to provide additional layers of support, like many…

You’ve heard of speed dating but what about a “speed interview?” The concept is simple – it’s a quick, 10 – 15 minute on-the-spot job interview, where our hiring managers can get to know the “you” beyond your resume. It’s what makes our seasonal career fairs unique – every registered attendee is guaranteed to meet with a member of our team! So, you’ve landed the interview but how can you nail it? We’ve compiled our…

When I joined WorkWave back in 2008 (which was at that time called Marathon Data Systems), I had a vision of building a next-generation cloud-based, end-to-end suite of business management software solutions tailored by vertical, that would help pest control, cleaning, lawn care, HVAC and other field service and logistics companies of all needs, sizes, industries and geographies transform the way that they operate – in order to improve back office efficiencies, increase field productivity…

In any business, regardless of industry, the team you hire is the face of your company and controls the customer experience. Therefore, it’s important to hire and develop great employees.

Nowadays, internships are not only a necessity for an undergraduate desiring a job upon graduation, but they are also difficult to solidify because of the high demand. And, if you’re lucky…

What’s worse – being stuck at work an extra hour to finish a project, or heading home only to find your train has a 60+ minute delay, causing your 1 hour commute to become a 2+ hour commute? I’d go with the former…rather put extra time in at the office to finish a project than be prepared to head home only to find out I’m stranded for an hour AT LEAST. This is all too…

The world has become a very busy place. We find ourselves in the constant struggle to balance our time and productivity throughout the day. The use of technology, whether mobile, tablet or wearables, has allowed us the freedom to remain connected and productive as we are on the go. We use an expanding list of applications on our devices to help facilitate everything we do from scheduling, using GPS to get around or connecting with…

Fighting the good fight against bugs, mice and other unwanted creatures isn’t glamorous work. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t be a hero to your customers while leaving competitors in the dust. Looking good (even better than those better-known guys who offer similar services) doesn’t have to leave you frazzled or create extra work around your offices. In reality, implementing just a few changes will make you more attractive to customers and prospects—while also…

Online reviews are today’s “word of mouth”. In fact, a 2015 BrightLocal consumer study found that an overwhelming 92% of consumers read online reviews.
