As a solar professional, your time is precious, and providing renewable energy solutions to happy customers likely leaves you with very little of it to spend growing your business. If everyday tasks like managing your employees and keeping on top of paperwork leave you feeling like you’re always playing catchup, we recommend our job management software, AroFlo.
Built for the specifics of trade businesses, AroFlo packs in all the features a savvy trade or service business owner needs to streamline their operations and automate their workflows. Better yet, AroFlo is a complete software package, meaning you’ll have access to every feature from day one, including all the training and support you need to get started quickly.
But don’t take it from us. Here are three features that solar professionals like yourself say they now rely on every day after getting on board with AroFlo.
1. STC quote templates
As a solar professional, you likely work with STCs every day. But putting together an STC inclusive quote with the same required information over and over can cost you time and ultimately affect your bottom line.
AroFlo’s robust set of quoting tools lets you quote on a job instantly by drawing from a pre-constructed template stored within your job management system. Simply pull a relevant STC quote from your list of stored templates, fill in the information, and you’re ready to go.
Our standard layouts are also available for various other tasks, including invoicing, task sheets, purchase orders and even compliance and safety. Instead of wasting time creating documents from scratch, let AroFlo do the heavy lifting instead.
Part of what makes AroFlo such a good fit for our solar clients is that it automates the tasks that would usually take you hours better spent growing your business success.
Take listing all the parts and labour you require for a specific installation job as an example. Using AroFlo’s Assemblies feature, instead of adding these items manually, simply load a prebuilt list of everything you require to complete the install, and you’re ready to go.
There’s no wasted time manually putting together the paperwork for a job you’ve done a million times before. Just let AroFlo do all the heavy lifting and watch as your entire custom assembly process is replaced by the tap of a button or the click of a mouse.
3. Subcontractor management
Running a successful solar business likely means you engage with subcontractors on a regular basis. Part of what makes our job management software so appealing for solar companies is that it includes special contractor access as a standard feature.
Instead of giving your subcontractors full access to your system, AroFlo lets you set specific users as ‘Contractors’, with their own special set of restrictions that you decide. This still provides them with a means to access the jobs you’ve assigned them and view the tasks they need to complete but limits them to see only what you’ve approved.
Contractors can then also be scheduled to jobs using AroFlo’s calendar system. This gives you even more business oversight and the ability to roster subcontractors from the same interface as you would your other employees..
But what we’ve covered here only scratches the surface of what AroFlo can do for your solar business.
