Here’s How Upper Turned the Tables for Sunbility in a
Short Time


Can you introduce yourself and your company’s background?

Yes, I’m Jason Dudney, owner of Sunbility. We are running a solar install company in Florida and its 20 counties. So, our team travels a lot. We need to visit our customers in order to provide them with a better service. You can lose lot of money in service if you’re not doing it right. So, that’s why I looked into this.

Jason dudney sunbility

Who is your clientele?

We do residential installation so our customer base is homeowners. And you know there is a lot of home in Florida here. About 3% of the state has solar, so there is a lot of opportunity here.

Jason dudney sunbility

How long do you take to complete an installation project?

There is always a site visit where we first take initial pictures. It can be 4-5 hours job away from our home base. We assess the situation through everything and then we load the trucks. Depending upon the municipality that we are dealing with, it takes 4-6 weeks. So, the whole process can be done in 1 or up to 3 months. It includes a trip for a site visit, a trip for the installation, and a trip back for the final inspection.

What problems lead you to find the Upper Route Planner?

We became short-staffed through covid, and the number went down for us, like everybody else. When we came out of covid, a couple of years later we needed restructuring. Bringing other people in a service, particularly in sales. When you find a product like UpperInc where you guys are focused on making it easier for us, you can bring on the new software. It was daunting for a service department to check balances and expenditures, and that’s why I moved to Upper where it has been 8-10 months.

You did mention about ford software on trucks, tell us what process you followed before getting Upper?

As our team was busy implementing some other processes, there was a real tight grip on their functionality. There is GPS I can tell you where the truck is, to turn it off, you can lock the doors, so always there is good functionality.

What benefits were you looking for when signing up with Upper Route Planner?

When I first signed up for the Upperinc, I knew that we had a lot of service calls that were unattended. On Upper, I can put in the list of these addresses and find the best routes for my service team. One service at that time and we have three now, so we got the three trucks out there and they are able to cover a lot more of these service calls efficiently. Obviously, UPS and FedEx have some interesting software, but you guys fit the perfect position and I was able to do it right through Upperinc.

Jason dudney sunbility

What do you like the most about Upper Route Planner?

It impressed me initially upfront when I had an idea about scheduling service calls by picking a time frame. You know from this step to this step, and you guys responded very quickly. You saw the value in what I was saying even though I might not have been explaining it properly to you. It was an immediate response from you. That was the moment I liked so far.

Jason dudney sunbility

What made you purchase the Upper subscription plan?

It was definitely. It was just when I had questions, you guys get me the answers. The price point is good enough for me. I mean it’s a good price point. I’m getting the money out of it that I’m putting into it. So those things yeah!

Jason dudney sunbility

What is your favorite feature of the Upper Route Planner?

You know as our installation build and we take on more customers that means more services. It’s great to import your service addresses and prioritize them. And then put in the software and then have it. You are able to prioritize servicing. You can jump in the list and see the mapping of all of it within a time frame, is an impressive feature.

Jason dudney sunbility

Would you recommend Upper to others?

I would recommend Upperinc to any service department that has thought about this, maybe if they using Google maps or the standard stuff. I would take a look at the trial because you have to make your service department. It can help you in certain ways in servicing. So, I would definitely recommend a trail period with you. You get there support, don’t be afraid to ask questions that are gonna allow you to open up your ideas on how these things should work. I tell people to never limit their creativity when it comes to software like this. Because anything can be developed out for you.

Jason dudney sunbility

What if the Upper disappears tomorrow?

If Upper disappears tomorrow, then I would lose my team, I can’t go back to it. You know what it takes companies out there. They will take certain criticism on certain constructive things. But you guys are listening. You guys listen to me and if you guys are gone tomorrow, I have to go back to Google where there is no one there. Even Mapquest is not gonna do the trick. So, don’t go anywhere you guys.
