Software designed to help save plumbers time on their business admin work has been launched in the UK.
The software, Fergus, was first launched in New Zealand in 2014 by plumber Dan Pollard, who set out to solve the admin problems he had experienced in his own business.
Now serving more than 18,000 tradespeople in eight countries, the Fergus app gives heating and plumbing businesses access to tools to organise their business. The app also helps make sure engineers get paid quickly, with all aspects of a job that need to be done to get paid in the workflow. The system tracks labour and materials back to the job in real time, to help make sure each job is profitable.
James Chillman, UK country manager, said: “Most tradespeople are still using manual, often paper-based systems and processes to manage their business. This ultimately leads to poor cash flow, lower profits and significant stress on the business owner.
“Fergus is designed specifically for the trade and has all the user friendliness built in you would expect for those company owners looking to spend less time on admin and more time doing the things they enjoy.”
