No more nights in the office catching up on paperwork.  Invoices can now be created on the move, coupled with the ability to take payment through the system, this is a real game changer for field management businesses.

Filter and file every customer report as it happens.  This was a much requested feature and our customers are loving it.  Another nail in the coffin for long nights of paperwork..

 

9. Send customer reminders - repeat business sorted

We all know it takes 10 times the effort to win a new client as keep an existing one.  Customer reminders keep your pipe-line full yet are so easy to forget when there are so many other tasks to complete - no longer is this the case!
