Trade Chimp App Offers Support For Small Businesses

A new tech trades services company, Trade Chimp, is offering operational and administrative support to tradespeople and small trades businesses, including electrical contractors and electricians, with up to 10 staff.

The Trade Chimp job management software package can be downloaded as an app on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop. The software and app, designed by Arc Studios at Hull’s digital centre, C4DI, aims to reduce trade companies’ dependence on paper time sheets, diaries, and spreadsheets, and help deal with payroll and invoices.

Trade Chimp also aims to empower tradespeople with access to data about their suppliers, jobs, and customers through a monthly business intelligence report.

Trade Chimp is designed to be particularly suitable for businesses that pay their staff or contractors based on the time they have worked, usually by an hourly rate or fixed salary, although it can also work if businesses pay staff or contractors by fixed prices for agreed pieces of work.

“Trade Chimp is, quite simply, all about helping trades people across the country to fully develop the potential of their businesses,” said Trade Chimp managing director, Sam Overment, a former electrical contractor.

“Having run my own electrical contracting business, I know first-hand how much time and energy can go into quoting for work, sourcing suppliers and parts and tools, let alone completing the work.”
