Flobot is software for property maintenance companies. Flobot allows you to manage your customers, your employees, your contractors and your office staff. Send quotations from the field direct to the customer, schedule your engineers for jobs or appointments, take instant payments for one-off small projects, manage your quotes and estimates to get more business.
Flobot shows you where your engineers are on a Google map and that allows you to schedule them geographically for optimum efficiency - then you won't have engineers making the kind of journeys in the image below! Of course, there's more. Scheduling the estimators and engineers, getting images and signatures back from the field to the office electronically and invoicing the customer - anything to make running your business easier.
We know that you need an all-encompassing, flexible piece of software to manage a property maintenance business - after all Flobot was designed specifically to run a property maintenance business. It is not easy, there are multiple disciplines - fitting new boilers, refurbishing bathrooms and kitchens, installing windows or even small handyman jobs like replacing a washer or hanging a picture. That might mean Plumbing, Electrical, Handyman, Heating & Boilers, Painting & Decorating, Refurbishments and Carpentry. Fear not - we've got it covered.
In property maintenance it can seem that all you ever do is quote for projects. Sometimes you have to visit, sometimes you can estimate from pictures or a spreadsheet. Now with Flobot you can do either or both. Setting up some templates for the most useful and often estimated types of projects will save you bags of time. You can even make a quote in the app while you are at the property, send it to the office or direct to the client.
Build very quick quotes for your clients at home, in the office or even at the customer's property with a nice list of exactly what you are going to do for them. This has four things going for it and they all come form one document.
Stops the client calling up then to ask what you are going to do for them - which is great. And everyone knows where they stand.
Used as the definitive legal agreement between you and the client becasue it has the terms and conditions attached.
Once the financial information is stripped out it serves as an electronic project sheet that appears in the engineer's app - no more paper
As it has all the materials on it can be used as a supplier sheet for ordering materials.
Flobot is a feature reach, configurable platform and can be used 'out of the box' - just like the hundred other Field Service Job Management SaaS companies you have looked at.
What sets us apart is our ability to customize Flobot to your scaffolding business's exact requirements with bespoke coding, allowing you to have your own 'instance' of the software - a fully tailored software package created just for you.
No-one else offers that service at a price that anyone outside a blue-chip can afford. Talk to us about it.
Flobot Field is designed to get your engineers to the right job at the right time - and to let them know what to do when they get there.
Navigate from job to job by utilizing the built in maps function then send that information to your client so they can see where your guy or gal is on the map with an estimate of the time of arrival - just like Uber.
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 (or not!) at any time.
A tickable electronic sheet that ensures every area specified has been seen to. Configurable in FLobot and if you have a very long and complicated one you can export it from Zoho forms.
Attach your 3rd party apps, pdfs, certificates to the job sheet and then get the all important signature for the office so they can bill straight away - or create an invoice in the field.
Take pictures of the before, during and after the cleaning has been done. Then export them to social media.
Seeing where your jobs are and being able to share that information with the engineers and the clients is golden. You can drag and drop appointments, meetings, projects and jobs from one time to another, one date to another or even one schedule to another. Swap teams in an instant. And send an sms message and email to your client at the same time to let them know when you will be arriving.
Our very latest feature is semi and fully automated scheduling. It is an advanced module that allows you to dramatically reduce your admin overhead by automating the diary and scheduling process. Now Flobot can help diagnose the issue your client has and allow the client to choose a time-slot for an engineer to visit - and then dispatch them automatically. This works well with domestic clients but even better for your commercial clients. Now they can book an engineer for repair, maintenance or installation 24 hours a day via PC, laptop or the Flobot client app. Wow! Think of the possibilities for customer satisfaction here. And the cost savings! Amazing! (Well we're amazed anyway!)
Just like Uber you can now allow your customer to see where your engineer is on a map and give them an estimated to time arrive. We call it Field Team Geo-location. Of course, you don't have to let them have this information but it will most likely save a call into the office and a call from the office to the engineer to explain where they are. And really empowering your customers with the information they need makes your client service look great - and saves you actually having to speak to them. That in itself can save a lot of time, especially if you have a lot of engineers and a lot of customers.
Sooner or later you are going to have to get with the program and get some software to help run your cleaning business. Either that or start employing more and more admin staff. Because Flobot works in a 10 to 1 admin to field staff capacity. Some of our customer have £1M + turnover businesses with just 2 admin staff looking after jobs, estimates and scheduling. That is really something and it makes for a very lean, efficient and most of all - profitable company.
Flobot works on any device, laptop, PC, tablet or smart phone and as it is browser based and hosted in the cloud, if you don't want to use the app or need the extra features found on the system you can always access it through a browser in any device.
And what's more Flobot is completely customizable to your own brand. In fact, Flobot is the only field service property maintenance software that you can 'white label'. So, your customers and contractors need never know that you didn't build your own bespoke field service software - you can even have your own version of the Flobot Field app in the Google Playstore.
