As a trade professional, it’s important to equip yourself with the right tools and use them to push for the success you deserve. For a facilities maintenance specialist like yourself, it’s often the tools you use to run your business that help you stay ahead of the game and leave your competitors struggling to keep up.
But investing time and money in a system that helps you run your business can be daunting, and you want to make sure that you get it right the first time.
That’s why we recommend our job management software AroFlo, as it’s a solution built by a trade professional, specifically for the needs and requirements of trade business owners.
But don’t take our word for it. We took the time to reach out to our facilities maintenance clients, all of whom run busy trade businesses just like yours.
Here’s what they had to say when we asked them which three features of AroFlo have made the biggest difference to their operational success:
1. Periodic Tasks
What would a good job management software be without the ability to generate and schedule recurring tasks at set intervals? It’s certainly not one that fits the needs of facilities maintenance experts, but luckily AroFlo makes recurring work easy to manage with our Periodic Tasks feature.
With our periodic tasks, you can:
- Automate the creation of recurring tasks
- Add materials, assign assets, attach forms and link schedules to templated periodics
- Adjust date ranges to account for seasonal variations
- Use variable service templates to manage complex service schedules
It all sounds complicated, but the beauty of AroFlo is that our software does the hard work of scheduling periodic maintenance for you. Once you’ve inputted the correct information into our Periodic Tasks feature, our system runs silently in the background, notifying you automatically when scheduled work comes due.
2. Asset Management
Keeping track of your assets in the field can be tough, especially when your gear is spread across multiple technicians, each working independently. But that’s the nature of the job, and as a facilities maintenance business owner, you need complete oversight when it comes to where your assets are and who has them.
Our Asset Management software gives you the flexibility to assign one or multiple assets to periodic or routine maintenance jobs.
Case Study : iWILL Building Management
For the team at iWILL Building Management, the need to hit the ground running lead them to AroFlo.
Now instead of calling around to find out who has an asset that you need later in the day, your integrated job management system can tell you in a matter of seconds.
Servicing and repairs are also covered when using AroFlo, as each asset added to your system can be pulled in and out of field usage as needed. Now, if something breaks down during the day, you’ll be able to recall it and get to work on a fix in no time at all.
Once work is done for the day, AroFlo’s reporting tools let you run detailed reports on assets, allowing you to map everything from daily usage to depreciation in a flash.
3. SMS & Email notifications
As a facilities maintenance expert, you’re in and out of homes and offices every single day of the week. With AroFlo’s SMS and Email Alerts, you’ll always have clear lines of communication with both your clients and your employees.
Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing job details will be dispatched to workers in the field via instant messaging the second you commence a job back at the office. Or set a custom event that sends notifications to clients informing them that a technician is on the way and when they should expect them to arrive.
You can even send reminders of due payments or scheduled maintenance that automatically dispatch at a certain date and time, a real timesaver for even the busiest facilities maintenance business.
It’s that easy and just the beginning of what AroFlo can do for your facilities maintenance business.
We’d love to show you how AroFlo can help grow your success and give you the quality of life you deserve while running your trade business.
