Every plumber knows that their operations need to be water-tight to keep profitability at a maximum and unforeseen costs at a minimum. By streamlining your workflows and increasing your administrative efficiency with this in mind, you can get any plumbing business operating like a dream. But eventually, your manual operations will start to let you down, and the search for an automated system that can take your business to the next level begins.
For some plumbing professionals, that search led them to our job management software, AroFlo. Our cloud-based solutions are built for tradespeople, by tradespeople, and our plumbing clients love how our system revolutionises their businesses.
But don’t take our word for it. We asked them what they love most about Aroflo.
Here are their top three favourite features:
1. Inventory management
Our clients love AroFlo’s inventory and stock management software, and it’s easy to see why. Keeping track of the inventory you have on hand and what you have back at home base is critical when running a successful plumbing business. By tracking every part and material you use in real-time, AroFlo helps you keep on top of what material you need to complete every job and whether you have the stock necessary to fill each order successfully.
Our inventory and stock management system also links seamlessly with our purchase order software, letting you dispatch urgent purchase orders from within the same interface, using supplier information stored in your AroFlo system.
2. Integrated timesheets
No trade business wants to deal with payroll disputes, and our integrated timesheet system gives plumbers the flexibility to run complex field technician arrangements with no fear of timesheet disagreements.
Our plumbing clients love AroFlo’s timesheets due to how adaptable they are to their plumbing business’s specific needs. Simply adjust your labour rates accordingly, and you can easily record billable hours on normal time, double time or even apprentice rates if you’re sending the 3rd year out on their own.
Offer an emergency plumbing service? No problem. Just add overtime rates and overheads specific to the types of work, and you’re ready to help clients without worrying about completing paperwork afterwards.
3. Document management
There’s nothing worse than digging through old jobs files looking for a photo you took on-site two years ago. Ask any plumber using AroFlo, and they’ll tell you that our document management software is an absolute gamechanger when it comes to saving time on business administration.
Rather than carrying around USBs filled with assorted job photos, AroFlo lets you store every piece of documentation in the cloud. This includes technical diagrams, blueprints, even safety and compliance forms. It’s all stored remotely and accessible from anywhere.
Because every piece of documentation stored in AroFlo is tied to a specific job, you’ll find that retrieving images now takes seconds rather than minutes or hours. The best part, though, is that our document management system works across both the Office and Field portions of AroFlo. This means your plumbers on-site can raise documents without wasting your admin staff’s time, and your admin staff can finally focus on running the business.
