It's easy to take down notes in the field directly into the job that you are undertaking. And built into Android is a very useful speech to text converter with a very high degree of accuracy, so those field team members and contractors with banana fingers need not type anymore.
Once you have left your notes about the task you have undertaken - or maybe even the reasons you couldn't, they will appear in the jobsheet which can be shared with the office and the client.
There is a separate section for follow on work. Fill this in and the office can see that they may very well need to book another appointment or take some further action based on the notes from this visit.
Leaving a note now along with some pictures of the task will save a hundred questions from the office ot the client after you have got home after a long day at work.
Can't get a connection? Don't panic. Flobot stores the job description and notes on your phone so you will be able get the notes done even when you can't get a 3G or 4G signal. And when you do get one, it will sync with the server automatically and send the jobsheet 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 Flobot 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?
