Job management software – a competitive edge for expanding electrical contracting businesses

Successful electrical contracting businesses that have progressed from start-ups to regional/national level outfits describe job management software as ‘indispensable’, ‘tender-winning’ and ‘transformative’.

Whether you’re looking to grow at scale or keep one step ahead of the competition, job management software is a necessity for growing electrical contracting firms.

But what does job management software do?

A best-in-class job management platform takes the pain out of job scheduling, gets you paid on time, and lets you deliver more jobs consistently against your customers’ expected SLA’s and KPI’s.

A job management platform can boost your customer service whilst streamlining your entire operation at every stage:

1. Bookings
Using an online booking portal, customers can book jobs at their own convenience. Smart scheduling can optimise your diary, making time for more jobs – adding to your profits. Moving away from paper-based and manual processes into a single online system improves operational efficiency and customer experience.

2. On the way to jobs
A job management platform optimises every route for your electricians and ensures they have the correct access details, so they can attend more jobs and keep service standards high. They can check out stock and equipment from your digital inventory, so they have everything they need to complete the job first time.

3. Attending jobs
Real-time job updates, ETA texts and GPS tracking on a job management platform mean your customers will never miss their electrician again. Compliance is simple to manage: risk assessments and H&S guidelines are all accessible from the palm of your electrician’s hand.

4. After the job
Book follow-up jobs seamlessly, saving back-office staff time. Integrated accounting platforms, such as Xero and Sage, mean that invoices can be easily managed on one platform. Instant payment options offer faster and more convenient ways to get paid.
