OLD SCHOOL TOOLS
NEW SCHOOL TOOLS
|Notepad||Use the basic notes app on your phone or dedicated note-taking tools like Evernote / Google Keep / Onenote.
These modern notebooks can sync across devices, be searched, and never get put through the washing machine (unless you leave your phone in your pocket)
|Diary||Diaries are great until you lose them (or leave them on the roof of your truck).
Don't risk it, use the calendar app on your phone / iPad/ tablet - and get your calendar event synced across all devices with a Google / Outlook / iCloud calendar account.
Job / Project scheduling is a bit of a different story, most systems will include some scheduling as part of their platform to keep all your job info in one place.
|Filing Cabinet||Those big boxy friends in the corner are pretty much useless now (but you can convert them into a really cool smoker!)
Replace them with cloud storage tools like Google Drive / Dropbox / Box.com. This makes your files accessible on all of your devices, automatically backed up, collaborative, and secure.
|Timesheets||So many options here! Most job management systems will have timesheeting built into the app where time gets logged against a job.
Or there are dedicated scheduling and timesheet tools like Deputy with amazing payroll automation that can save mountains of time.
|Invoice/Quote Book||Again, lots of options.
Entry level invoicing and quoting like Invoice2Go or Zoho Invoice.
Dedicated accounting software like Xero, MYOB AccountRight Live, or Quickbooks Online.
And of course, nearly every job/project management system will have built-in Quoting / Invoicing that creates the documents against the job, then all we need is an integration to the accounting software.
|Paper Safety Forms||We've built simple PDF smart forms that can be used on phones / iPads / Tablets, through to implementation of comprehensive WHS Management platforms like DoneSafe|
|Sets of Plans||Forget carrying around rolls of useless paper, use Google Drive / Dropbox / Box.com for file storage and collaboration or specific plan management tools like Plangrid or Bullclip|
