Set up your business for success

Over the years we have had countless tradie clients approach us to help them decide what job management software will suit them best. Then assist with the setup of the best system for the unique needs of their trades or services business. Sometimes we are approached to help fix issues within their current job management platform after paying expensive software integrators thousands of dollars to set up their software.

Office Shed not only holds a huge amount of knowledge around job management systems management we also delver our set up and migration work at a fraction of the cost of traditional software integrators, though still to exacting standards.

If you have more complex job management software requirements, we will deliver work on a project basis. This could be for more complex set ups that require migration of data from legacy systems. Or you may require integration of other applications with your job management app. Or your exiting system might need further enhancements. A typical project-based engagement will include:

· Initial discussion or enquiry.
· Free scooping call minutes.
· Proposal / Project estimate received.
· Discovery session.
· Detailed quote with full deliverables.
· Project accepted.
· Project completed.

Retainers are best suited for trades clients that have already set up and have a variety of needs around improving their job management application and further training. Typical services delivered via retainer include:

· Staff training.
· Form creation.
· Ad hoc support.
· Troubleshooting.

As part of our admin support services, we manage the daily usage of job management apps for our tradie clients. We are inputting new customer details, managing job statuses, scheduling, upload work orders, creating quotes, invoices and much more. We will often perform smaller enhancements or upgrades of job management apps within our admin support packages.

I’ve been using officeshed for 5 years now and can not fault them. Jay and her team are fantastic answering all my calls and getting all my admin sorted. Tash is a great manager on my account and a pleasure to chat to everyday. My business wouldn’t run without them!

I have been with office shed for over 2 years. Before I used their service I was a typical tradie/ small business owner working until 11pm each night. When I took on their service, they slowly took away all the little admin jobs that eat away at your day. I now finish at 5pm, I am less stressed, I have more time with my family. I can’t recommend their admin and support services highly enough. Dan
