A simple and elegant layout for displaying the field appointments in the app. Colour coded so you can easily see whether it's a job or a quote, orange for a job, blue for a quote and the size of the block gives you an idea of how long they will take - just like the system.
From here it's easy to communicate with your customers while you are in the field. Press one button to call them and another to send a text message.
Press the 'en-route' button to send an sms text message to the customer with your exact location and estimated time of arrival - just like Uber!
It means you have a simple, easy to use schedule that tells you just which appointments you have in the day, how long they last for and where they are - and it has a nice built in navigation feature so you can get guided straight to the door.
Can't get a connection? Don't panic. Flobot stores the information on your phone so you will be able to use the app even if you can't get a 3G or 4G signal. And when you do get one, it will sync with the server automatically and get any new data that you should have received or send any information back to the office.
The Flobot app is for those who work outside the office 'in the field' - but most likely in a van. So if that's you, it gives you everything you need to do you job - the customer's address - which it will navigate you to, the details of the job, the telephone numbers and email address. Press a button and it will send an sms to your customer to tell them when you will arrive.
In combination with Android's voice recognition capabilities, Flobot allows you to speak directly into your smart phone or tablet to update job notes. It's great for slow typers and you'll be amazed at how quick and accurate it is. The notes will be added to the client's record. You can even add pictures and video to upload directly to Flobot so that your office team can see exactly what's happening on site.
You'll know that in business, getting your customer to sign-off work that's been completed is an important way of protecting revenue and avoiding disputes. Flobot app allows you to capture these signatures electronically and transmit them alongside the job data safely and securely.
Thanks to Floot app's built in, secure GPS functionality, you can see where all of your field team members are in real time on a map. The 'En-route' button lets client know that your field team member is on their way by sending an SMS, and it will even calculate their ETA. Every check in and check out is geo-location stamped so you'll always be sure that your engineer is at the right place at the right time.
Many service industry sectors require completion of certificates, such as Gas Safety Certificates or Waste Transfer Documents and these have historically been paper based and cumbersome. If you have an app for them just attach them to Flobot and send them into the office. It means you can ditch the triplicate pad and complete your certificates and documents electronically. Simple, efficient and quick.
Flobot is so simple to use that you can have your business up and running on it in 10 minutes. What are you waiting for?
