Software for trades people should be easy to use, save you money, time and make you more efficient.

Alex Gibbons, a master builder and Julian Salmon the owner of a software development company founded the company after they came together to discuss solutions to help Alex manage his rapidly growing construction business.

Alex was spending too much time on paperwork and administration and he knew he was working inefficiently. He asked Julian to find him a system that would make running his business easier and automate the key functions. Julian reviewed the market and revealed that there were no complete software solutions available to the construction industry.

There were plenty of solutions on the market that did bits and pieces such as estimation, scheduling and diary systems, some did invoicing and basic accounts but in order to give Alex all the features he wanted, the pair realised they would have to build it.

That’s how Tradesoft was born.

Alex Gibbons said:

"I can’t believe how much more efficient the business runs, now we are using the software. We’ve saved 30% of our time on estimating and administration. My staff love it and the feedback from customers about how quickly and accurately we estimate jobs has been overwhelming. It’s also made life easier for our suppliers.

More interesting though have been the unexpected benefits. When one of our vans was broken into and tools stolen, it only took minutes to print off the inventory for the vehicle and check it against what was left getting an accurate list of what had been taken.

When the insurance loss adjuster saw the pictures of the items stored in Tradesoft, he was amazed, so much so he told his bosses about the system. Shortly after they asked us for a demonstration. That led to a strategic partnership with a specialist international insurance company who are developing an insurance scheme for our customers that will be linked to our system so that they are always perfectly insured for their stock and equipment.

Needless to say the insurance pay-out was extremely fast allowing us to get back to work in double quick time."
