RYTECH is strictly a water damage company. Our employees focus on perfecting one task. We are certified water damage specialists. It’s not Dry until it’s RYTECH Dry.
The Rytech concept is a niche in the recession resistant insurance restoration contracting industry. The concept is limited to residential/commercial water damage mitigation, structural drying, contents drying, sewage cleanup and mold remediation. All structural drying work is performed by IICRC ASD Certified Technicians using state-of-the-art equipment.
All “back office” work (job assignments, estimating, invoicing, collection, bookkeeping, etc.) is performed centrally at our Admin/Call Center in Kennesaw Georgia. This business model allows Rytech Franchisees to focus on local marketing and production.
All project data is collected on site with tablet PC Rytrac/MICA software and uploaded real-time to the www.micaexchange.com/rytech/ portal. Estimates are then generated in Xactimate® and summary/management reports generated each morning. Rytech franchisees are able to manage their entire business through the Rytrac Dashboard.
