Tell us a bit about your company
We are a road marking company
who like to keep at the forefront of developments, and ensure our clients get the best possible service. Our electronic presence is important to us and to our demanding clients in public and private sectors.
Please tell us a little about your position in the company
I’m the business manager and as such am tasked with ensuring our systems work smoothly, and keeping up to date with latest developments and innovative ways of ensuring efficient, effective work practices. I also hold a personal commitment to promoting environmental issues within the workplace and as such am interested in any innovations which allow us to reduce our organisational footprint.
What problems were you having that FieldMotion was brought in to fix?
We had far too many sheets of paper to be filled in, transcribed onto our online systems, filed, and revised. Fieldmotion was adopted as a means of bringing these paper sheets together electronically in a straightforward, intuitive manner which would allow all members of staff to carry out the required tasks and minimise task repetition. Incidentally the system has helped to eliminate lost paperwork and mislaid measurements, saving us a great deal of time and trouble.
How has FieldMotion affected your business since you've started using it?
Fieldmotion has allowed us to work in a more effective and efficient manner. We can now easily access past records in a matter of seconds, check job details and amend jobcards with a click of a mouse, and send updated information and drawings to our workers out on the road. They can file reports at the click of a button on their phone, which allows instant invoicing and troubleshooting where required. Simple transformation of jobcards into job reports for the customer and invoices save many hours of paper collation and handwritten invoice drafts. Photographs taken on site allow instant understanding of any issues arising. Signature facility allows sign-off of work by the customer, and the system creates an excellent impression of smooth operational function.
If you could put a number on it, how many hours/person/week have you saved by switching to FieldMotion?
We have saved at least one person half their time per week by bringing in Fieldmtion. As we didn’t have that time to spare, this means that we have freed up valuable time for doing other more productive tasks than routine paper pushing.
Do you think that FieldMotion software will help your company take on more work?
Absolutely. More time to advertise, deal with enquiries, organise and schedule additional work, as well as the increased number of enquiries we get from referral, by people impressed with our FIELDMOTION system in operation. Request A Demo
