A long time ago we used to be one. And that gives us a unique insight and an appreciation for the complexity of running a property maintenance business. It's not just about work flow and scheduling. You will probably have a mix of employees and sub-contractors in the field teams - and so Flobot deals with payment allocations for both.
There is more! It has a HR system for keeping the certficates, cv, skillset and details of the contractors. It has a portal so they can check their payments and alter the areas they work. They can build quotes in too. And there are lots of features to help you manage multi-skilled - sometimes undisciplined field teams.
There is no other field service software company like Fresh Milk Software - and there is no other product like Flobot.
Of all the companies that provide services at their customer's location, property maintenance is the industry that needs good field service software the most. And that's because you are supplying multiple trades across several disciplines often to regular clients with hundreds of different properties and locations - an estate agency for example.
So, you need to take details of the individual jobs, badge them to the correct client, inform the tenants or landlord and organize the contractor to arrive at the right time. Then you need to get a jobsheet signed, send and invoice and get paid.
All rather complicated - and that is why you need a property maintenance system like Flobot. The system wll sort your office out and the app will sort your contractors.
The Flobot app is designed to get your field team members, agents, engineers and tradespeople out in the field to the right job and on time.
Navigate from job to job by utilizing the built in maps function. Send that information to your client and they can see where your guy is on the map with an estimate of the time of arrival - just like Uber.
Take notes, add certificates, attach before and after pictures to create an e-sheet that can be sent straight to the office from the customer's property instantly..
And now get the client and the engineer to sign it. It wll be time and geo-location stamped, no more paper and a lot more evidence when it comes to a dispute.
Flobot app sends all the field data back to the office so you can see where all your field teams are and what they are doing at any time.
Flobot works on any device, laptop, pc, tablet or smart phone. That means you can access your customers, contractors and data anywhere at any time.
Flobot is scalable from 1 user to 1000 and becomes even more useful the more employees and field teams that use it.
Impressive. It means that any sized property maintennace company can run their entire business from a smart phone, controlling payments, invoices, field teams and customers from anywhere. Download the Flobot field app in the Google Playstore.
