Which tech tools can save tradies the most time and money?

Take our time and cost savings questionnaire to discover a tech solution suited to solving your trade business’s administrative dramas.

As you’re probably aware, running a small trades business isn’t all on-site, physical labour – there’s a lot of administrative paperwork in there too. And, if your business is still in its early stages, it’s likely you’re the one responsible for getting it done. 

14-hour days and a limited social life don’t need to be the reward for running a small trade business, in fact there are loads of affordable tech solutions designed to help you manage your admin work onsite during billable hours – so you don’t have to burn the midnight oil. 

As the old saying goes, “time is money” and the key to business success in today’s hectic world is to outsource and automate. If you struggle with the following admin tasks week in week out, there are affordable solutions available that can help you out.

1. Invoicing 

If you’re struggling to stay on top of creating and sending quotes, creating and sending invoices and progress claims, an invoicing software designed for tradies could be the additional tech tool you need. 

2. Accounting 

If you’re finding your long admin hours revolve around chasing staff for timesheets, doing payroll calculations and chasing client payments, you might find value in an accounting software system.  

3. Project Management 

If project and operation management is your Achilles heel, you could benefit from job management or operation software, there are specific systems designed for tradies that can help you manage:  

  • Tracking down customer and job details
  • Collating information from job cards
  • Reporting – tracking job costs and job pricing
  • Scheduling jobs and communicating job details to field staff and clients
  • Chasing material invoices
  • Getting job photos and notes off staff phones

While tradies and power tools go hand in hand, technology is something new for the industry. Tradies are keen to adapt and take on these new tech tools but are generally at a loss of where to start. That’s where TradiePad comes in! Our mission is to help tradies like you implement ALL of the right tools so you can get the most out of your business without having to work over-time. 

But we also understand that not every tech tool will suit your business’s needs. So, to help you get a clear picture of what those long nights are being spent on and what solutions you need to save and make money we developed this Time and Cost Savings Questionnaire. The questionnaire is fully interactive – meaning the answers are truly personalised to you and your trade business.
