As a fire service professional, you likely spend every day helping to keep homes and businesses safe. But have you ever taken a moment to consider whether your business might be the one that needs some extra help to thrive? With jobs piling up and thousands of client assets to manage, it can sometimes feel like you spend every waking moment running your business, and no matter how much personal time you spend trying to improve efficiency, it never seems like enough.
The fact is that thousands of professionals working in the fire services industry often feel like their work is consuming their lives, and if you share this feeling, you’re not alone. Add to this that any chance of finding new ways of operating or tools that can assist you in working better is often made impossible by how little free time you have to explore your options.
If this sounds like your situation, then we think we might have a solution that can help you take back control of your working life and give your business a new pathway to efficiency and success. Our job management software AroFlo is the best friend of fire service professionals, and it packs in all the tools you need to run your business faster and better than you ever thought possible.
But don’t take our word for it; here are three features of AroFlo that our fire service users say has changed the way they operate forever.
1. Task Asset Quoting
Running client assets is a core part of your job, but when they number in the hundreds or even thousands, it can quickly turn into a logistical nightmare, which is why we’ve made sure that our Task Asset feature is powerful enough to fit any job.
AroFlo’s Task Assets feature streamlines the entire process by allowing you to store every client asset within one system and retrieve them on demand to be assessed in seconds. Within the Task Asset interface, you can quickly pass or fail items at the tap of a button, adding efficiency to every job you do throughout the day.
But the real power behind AroFlo’s Task Asset functionality begins when a failed item needs repairs or replacing. Our Task Asset interface includes a handy ‘generate quote’ button that lets you pull items directly from the inventory stored in AroFlo and create an applicable quote in just a few moments.
You can probably already see why this is such a gamechanger for jobs of any size, and it’s one of the many reasons why fire service professionals love using AroFlo in their everyday work.
2. Periodic Tasks
Periodic maintenance is a core component of your work as a fire service professional, which is why we’ve made sure AroFlo’s suite of tools fully accounts for the need to schedule jobs that repeat at regular intervals.
Simply set up recurring work or preventative maintenance jobs within our system, then rest easy knowing that AroFlo will automatically schedule this work for as long as you indicated. You can even take this a step further by adding materials, assets, forms or employee schedules to periodic tasks, allowing you to add every detail you need to a recurring job and ensure that you and your team are ready each time it rolls around.
You can even manage seasonal variations or other concerns using our dynamic frequencies system, which ensures that every recurring task falls within a date range that you indicate.
AroFlo is an end-to-end system, which means it pulls details right from the jobs you’ve just completed, and lets you input that information directly onto a digital invoice. Not only does this save time, but it also ensures that mistakes are kept to a minimum, and your cost tracking capabilities are foolproof.
You can even create detailed reports about your invoices at any time, giving you complete financial transparency on demand.
3. Custom Forms
Your documentation is unique to the needs of your business, and we’ve made sure that AroFlo can fully account for that with our custom forms feature, which covers everything from compliance to risk assessment at the tap of a button.
Creating a custom form is quick and easy. Our fire service users love that they can have professional documentation ready without spending time and money on expensive design software. If you need a form even quicker, though, AroFlo also offers pre-built templates that are fully customisable, so you can skip the creation process entirely and just add the information you require to make the form work for your needs in seconds.
Once a form is built, you can even add it to a task or job within AroFlo, letting you keep your documents neatly arranged and easy to reference.
Fire service professionals love AroFlo, and we think you will too.
