Bacon, OJ, pancakes… PestWeb?

How PestWeb helps PMPs kick off their workdays


On the 20th anniversary of PestWeb®, we’ve spent a lot of time reflecting on what this website means to us. But more importantly, we’ve also been thinking about what PestWeb means to PMPs in real terms. Because ultimately, it’s our customers who use the website as an industry hub and as a tool to drive their business.

On the 20th anniversary of PestWeb®, we’ve spent a lot of time reflecting on what this website means to us. But more importantly, we’ve also been thinking about what PestWeb means to PMPs in real terms. Because ultimately, it’s our customers who use the website as an industry hub and as a tool to drive their business.

And we keep coming back to the idea of breakfast.

No, you can’t order a short stack on PestWeb – the shipping implications would be messy – but we like to think PestWeb gives our customers the structure and resources they need to make time for, say, the most important meal of the day. And that throughout the day, whether they’re being fueled by oatmeal or something at the local drive-thru, PestWeb continues to make it easy to work efficiently, ultimately giving PMPs more time to get important work done.

Bring on the Batches

Workplace studies and basic psychology have shown, time and time again, that people are most efficient when they can get similar tasks accomplished at one time, in one place, with as few distractions as possible. If you can ‘batch’ your work and knock it out, it’s far more efficient than spreading it out throughout the day.

PestWeb has always enabled this kind of batching, by giving PMPs tools that help them blaze through work that might otherwise drag on for hours. For instance, managers can review all of their technicians’ educational progress from one dashboard on PestWeb Plus. Quick search functionality means anyone can find and print off dozens of product labels & SDS in one go. And with Univar purchase history and the Online Store, checking on and re-buying old orders is also a breeze.

Digital Advantage

Sometimes, it’s the little things that save you time. That’s why we’ve moved as many resources as possible online, even popular one-off documents. When you can get what you’re looking for without having to take a drive, make a call, or root through stacks of papers in the office, you can move on with the rest of your day that much earlier.

Digital also means an advantage in the where and when of your daily tasks. That office we just mentioned? Why get things done there if you’d rather do it from the comfort of your home, or the warmth of your favorite coffee shop? And it’s not just about ambiance, but also about scheduling. Want to finish up a ProTraining course after the kids are asleep? No problem. Prefer to read the latest Ask Mr. Pest Control first thing in the morning? It’s easy to get it done with plenty of time for French toast to follow.

Easy, Efficient, Early

We know PestWeb isn’t something PMPs normally associate with breakfast, but that’s kind of the point. With the flexibility of our site, customers can fit PestWeb into any schedule, no matter how busy, and make time for whatever matters most to them. And if it also means they have a few extra minutes to enjoy another cup of joe, that just means we’ve accomplished one of our goals.
