During high school, Mike Leone worked for a neighbor’s service
company in Cleveland, Ohio, riding along with a senior technician. He started
his own service company in 2011, and when an established company in the area
went out of business, Leone’s business grew rapidly. “Overwhelmed with customers and employees,
I began searching for a software to help save me time,” Leone says. It was
2014, and he wasn’t happy with the options he found — so he recruited some
software developers and began creating Pool Office Manager.
Leone still owns his service company but now focuses on the
distribution of the software, which is in more than 30 states with more than
600 technician users. “Now I
can assist other companies in removing the inefficiencies from their business
while continuously improving Pool Office Manager for our users,” Leone says.
In addition to exhibiting his software, Leone also teaches
seminars at industry trade shows on improving business efficiency and
streamlining operations. “I
believe increasing efficiency and business capacity will lead to improving the
life and profits for fellow pool company owners and operators,” he says, adding
that he wants to enable hard working companies to get through seasonal swings
while maintaining their sanity and relationships.
