Tradies do a lot of paperwork in the field, only to enter information again on their pc back at the office. It’s time better spent servicing customers and generating new business.
Using a Tablet with Telstra Mobile Broadband® powered by the Next G® network, staff in the field can:
- get real-time access to inventory/parts availability
- order new stock online whilst away from the office
There are applications that allow on-the-job forms to be completed electronically and signed off by clients/builders. This reduces the amount of time spent handling documents as well as increasing productivity in the field. And with the Telstra Next G® network, which covers 99% of Australia’s population, you could fix your customers’ problems in more places.
- Less paperwork with Canvas
Tablets and applications such as Canvas are becoming the most important tool in the tradesman’s toolbox. All paper-based forms could be replaced with mobile forms, with data sent electronically to back office systems, meaning fewer trips back to the office. With Canvas, you can:
- complete electronic job sheets in the field by obtaining signatures from clients and other tradesmen
- get field staff to capture parts used, complete time sheets and submit invoices on location so you may get paid sooner
- Submit invoices on location
- capture photos and attach to forms to verify job completion, while getting clients and other tradesmen to sign as proof
- Get the best person to the job fast
With GeoOp Mobile application, you can easily track the location of all your tradesmen with a GPS-enabled Tablet and send the closest one to the next job. You can also send a map with driving directions and job details for faster and better service. Once on the job, staff can take notes, attach photos or documents on their Tablet so everything can be stored in one place.
