Reunion 2014 went above and beyond, and we are so pleased with the outcome of our time with our franchisees. This was an exciting time to teach our franchisees about some of the coming technology updates, changes in marketing, and even share leadership and shop tips among franchisees.
This year’s Reunion included lots of informative sessions and fun events for everyone to enjoy! Major highlights include:
Google and Yodle- Representatives from Yodle, Mr. Rooter’s new SEO and online vendor, presented with Heather McLeod, national marketing manager. With the launch of our new websites, Yodle showed us how their expertise will maintain the placement and growth of our websites. Our surprise guests, Google, supported their expertise!
#MrRooterHunt- Our franchisees competed in a photo scavenger hunt during their time at Reunion. With their lists and cameras, franchisees found the most entertaining and important aspects of the week and shared them with the social world. To see their findings and fun, search #MrRooterHunt and #MrRooter on Instagram and Twitter.
Service Titan- Our technology team is constantly researching and enhancing the best support systems for our franchisees. We officially announced our use of Service Titan to assist scheduling our technicians and customers. We are excited for the future with Service Titan!
