“Compared to where we were when we first made the decision to implement FIELDFIX, we’re worlds apart. It’s just magic!” says Roger Austin, MD Austin Asphalt.
Having initially investigated building his own bespoke app, once Roger Austin saw what FIELDFIX could do, he knew immediately it would provide his business with what it needed.
For Austin Asphalt this meant critical information, such as variations, could now be recorded, priced and dealt with from the field as they arose. Accurate, real-time analysis enabled up-to-the-minute profitability reporting and quick rate adjustments if needed on the fly. The ability to track all costs 100 percent accurately or to measure a variety of other aspects through the vast array of reports meant important decisions could be made quickly and easily as information was readily to hand. Graphics tracking of each job would also expose good and bad methodologies in the business, allowing the streamlining of all job operations over time.
Another key factor for Austin Asphalt was the ability to integrate the mobile software seamlessly with its existing systems. As Roger Austin puts it, “Mobile timesheet capture makes the wages from the field to bank payment seamless.”
There’s no going back now… we can’t live without it!
Since implementing FIELDFIX we have seen significant improvements in our administration workflows and processes including payroll handling with FIELDFIX Timesheets, tracking working time and materials used through FIELDFIX Job Cards and also much more consistent, professional looking as-built diagrams generated using FIELDFIX. We have also seen a great reduction in the time taken to submit documentation to our clients and missing paperwork is now a thing of the past!
The FIELDFIX support team are always responsive to our questions and have resolved the few technical problems that we have encountered very quickly indeed. Our suggestions and requests have even on several occasions been included in subsequent updates to the web-based interface and/or mobile apps.
