Choosing the right job management app for tradies is critical to your business success. The wrong job management software risks wasting time, losing jobs and information, losing track of staff and costs, or worse, you risk losing face with your customers. Office Shed will advise you on all the benefits and pricing of each. You can compare all solutions, including Servicem8 vs Tradify, while selecting the most suitable for you. You’ll have up-to-date information, accurate customer details, work orders and quote requests updated as they come in, whilst work can be scheduled and allocated to the appropriate staff. Most importantly, labour, materials and other costs will be recorded at the time and billed on the day of completion. All top apps for tradies sync with Xero, so there’s no double entry. Our advantage is we continuously use these programs on a daily basis, so we understand what the user experience is actually like for tradies. The daily maintenance of job management software is included in our admin support packages.

I’ve employed the services of Office shed for over a year now and it’s one of the best business decisions I made!Tamzin has been an integral part of my businesses growth, from scheduling jobs, answering the phone, replying to emails and even setting up fool proof systems using service m8, I’m no longer trapped in the office every night doing admin and can concentrate on what I’m good at, being on the tools!I would highly recommend office shed to any trade business in the service industry.Matt Bice - Owner of Bice electrical

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
