Hey everyone, welcome back. A lot of you have been asking me for an update on how I went pitching the job software management system to my bosses. I didn’t realise how many of you related to how I felt when I was an apprentice. I know that being an apprentice sucks, but I assumed most people felt that way just because we were/are at the bottom of the pecking order. Being at the bottom of the pecking order means doing all the extremely average work, and any apprentice out there would know that’s the polite way of saying it.
But yeah anyway, to answer your questions, finding the best job management software for tradesmen wasn’t easy. I had to test out all these different systems on the jobs that I’ve started running before I showed my favourite to my bosses. As an A-Grade electrician, I’m now the foreman on jobs that I used to just be an apprentice on. It’s pretty cool, but obviously, it comes with a lot more responsibility and I don’t want to stuff it up. That’s why I’ve been using tradie management systems – they take a lot of stress off me and do most of the job organisation so that I can get the job done in real life.
So after about a month, I chose my favourite electrician management software. Melbourne bosses, and trade bosses in particular, really want to know that you’ve done your research before telling them anything. That’s why it was really important that I knew for a fact the software was good before I told my bosses about it. I showed them a month’s worth of reports and organisation documents, and they were impressed!
We’re going to be rolling out the management system next month for the whole company. The apprentices I’ve been working with already know the software which is going to make it easier. They’ll be able to tell the other blokes just how good it is.
