The job estimation tool

 

The job estimation tool

Allowing you to build a very good-looking quote with as much or as little detail displayed to the client as you wish. Build up quantities and line items in a logical, linear format. Break out totals into materials and labour or define them yourself. The totals are added up as you go along and the sales tax added automatically.

Add a template with your logo and contact details and your quote is ready to send to your client in no time at all. And as making quotes and estimates are the number one time-consuming gripe for all field service companies - the faster they are done - the better.

A list of every quote you ever sent

Once you've built those quotes it is very useful to have a record of them. And that is what's great about Flobot. It keeps a record of every single one of them - and that's useful because you can now chase them up to see if they are going to buy anything from you.

With Flobot's unique visual stage system you can easily and quickly see whether they have indeed puchased or whether you need to make a sales call.

Total revenue, total profit, whe it was sent, who sent and eve if it has been opened and looked at. All this at your fingertips.

The estimate sent to the customer

Rendered beautifully of course, but there is more to this quote than meets the eye. Look carefully and you will see the options for the client to reply straight back to you electronically. And then you will get a message telling you that (hopefully) your customer has accepted the quote.

Even better, it means they can electronically accept your terms and conditions - very useful in the unlikely event that there is a dispute beween the parties.
