Tradies across Australia can now enjoy the of flexibility the new Trades Services Management app has to offer in getting their jobs done on the go
Melbourne, Australia, January 18, 2018 – (Press Release) – An increasing number of Aussie Tradies are adding a new arsenal to their tool box, and it’s none other than their favorite Field Service Management app, i4Tradies.
Designed specifically for Trades Services Business Owners, solo Tradies and large Facility Management companies, in short span of time, i4Tradies has been able to position itself as a smart tool of the Trade for Tradies seeking to enhance customer service and streamline their everyday jobs.
"With i4Tradies, you can ditch the office and run your business on the go," says Jerome Beekmans, the Master Franchisor for Mr. Electric.
"Our growing network of franchise owners have also started to see the benefits. Now they can be in a meeting with their employees, on the way to a service request or simply enjoying some work/life balance with the family and still be able to respond to new job requests or assign jobs to our team with a few taps on the smartphone. We now have the ability to manage our network of franchisees as they do their work, where ever they are. This technology, coupled with our globally proven systems are making life easier for our network to run their business" added Beekmans.
The i4Tradies app is being continuously upgraded and improved through feedback from our valued clients like Mr. Electric for some time now. It was only in March, 2017 that the app was officially rolled out to the Australian market, yet it has gained the attention of a number of Trades Services businesses, due to the potential it promises.
Founder, Logan Nathan believes i4Tradies will soon digitally transform how Tradies run their businesses, not just in Australia, but across the globe.
“A typical Tradie spends so much time delivering the service and commuting from one job to the next, that there is hardly anytime left to manage their business or handle the customer-satisfaction aspect of it. Our aim is to help Tradies make a shift from working harder to working smarter,” says Logan. “i4Tradies cuts down the paper trail, tracks profit in real-time and helps retrieve all customer information wherever and whenever they want.”
From Sparkies to Plumbers, Chippies, Painters, Landscapers and Cleaners, Tradies from nearly every industry are now adopting i4Tradies to better engage with their customers and build relationships based on trust.
PAD Plumbing, one of the early adopters of i4Tradies, believes that’s exactly what the app is helping them achieve.
“With i4Tradies, there is no room for mistakes, missing deadlines or miscommunication between employees, customers and the main office”, says owner Paul Dorian. “The app lets our customers share photos of actual jobs, helping us quote them more precisely. With simple drag and drop scheduling, all jobs are assigned to the employees with a single touch, saving commute time and increasing customer satisfaction.”
With the decline of the cash economy and serious implications for tax evasion, i4Tradies seems to have hit the market just in time to introduce a paperless invoicing and payment system backed by smart reporting in real-time.
i4Tradies is an innovative SaaS platform that seamlessly integrates Trades Business Owners, On-the-road Workers with their Facilitators/Managers & Consumers to Manage their respective Trades Business Needs.
