Our Process

How We Work


Log Client Request

Jobs (Responsive, PPM or Project) and quote requests are logged to the client and site. Once approved, quotes can be instantly converted to a job. History of work for client/site/asset may be viewed. Jobflow records if a certificate (eg NICEIC) should be issued when the work is complete and will remind you to attach a copy to the job record before the job can be closed.


Job Allocation

Easily allocate jobs to the appropriate operative or sub-contractor via a simple diary layout, notifying them via email or TomTom. Urgent jobs can be allocated to the nearest available operative, using the TomTom vehicle location map. Once a job is accepted, TomTom navigates to site, updating JobFlow with the estimated arrivale time, taking into account traffic and unscheduled stops. Each job can be assigned to a member of office staff to oversee. Daily job related tasks for office staff can be allocated and monitored too


Parts Stocks & Controlls

Use JobFlow to order hired plant and parts for jobs or general stock. Record stock at any number of locations, including vehicles. Adjustments are made via JobFlow as parts arrive, are used, or transferred between locations. Top up orders will be generated as your preferred holding levels are breached, ensuring each location has optimum stock. Never forget to return hired plant again – hired plant must be notified as returned before JobFlow will let you close the job! A list of all outstanding hired items is available on demand.


Site Visit

Digital pen and paper users complete hard copy forms to record works done. For App users, bespoke electronic forms are set up on the operative’s device. JobFlow will not allow progress unless they are completed in the order you specify (eg. Risk Assessment or Permit to Work before Worksheet). Record works done, assistant engineers, parts used, assets, photos, out of pocket expenses, lunch taken, and time-sheet information. Including the ‘all important’ Client Signature. If ‘extra works’ are required, the operative can send a survey form with full details back to JobFlow for a new quote to be prepared.


Data Capture

DMS ANDROID APPLICATION Send and Receive the most compact data input solution for JobFlow. Forms, data and photographs can be input to the system from site to populate JobFlow. Plus! job information, site drawings, plans etc. can be emailed to operatives who can also access parts stock information and view their diary to see upcoming work. DIGITAL PEN AND PAPER - Ideal for clients who need a hard copy of worksheets. The worksheet is handwritten as normal, with the data captured and sent to JobFlow.


Other Skill

If required, additional workers or sub-contractors with different skills may be allocated to a job at any time. Client Contact - Accurate and up to date information. Keeping clients up to date with job progress information is simple with JobFlow. All authorised staff can be quickly trained to navigate JobFlow screens either in the office or remotely. This enables them to answer client queries quickly with accurate, up to date information. Clients can access their own job information via the optional Client Access Module and place jobs directly on-line too!


Job Finished

Invoice immediately to improve cash-flow. All worksheets, complete with client signature, are received at head office as an operative leaves site, so the job can be costed and invoiced straight away. No torn or coffee stained worksheets arriving back from operatives weeks later for processing! Electronic worksheets or forms can be emailed instantly to the client. If you choose our digital pen and paper solution, the client gets a hard copy of the worksheet too.



Individual & Batch - The cost of parts, hired plant, sub-contractors and employees are all tied to the job record for fast job costing and invoicing, JobFlow lets you vary VAT rated for invoicing, it also handles retention’s at any rates over any period, invoicing all or part of a job as required. JobFlow also has a fast and efficient system for raising batch invoices, where multiple jobs are billed on a single invoice. ACCOUNTS COMPATIBILITY - Purchase and sales invoice transactions can be exported to most specialist accounts packages, eg. Sage 50, 100 and 200, Sage Construct, Exchequer, Xero.



How much cash is tied up with work in progress? Which are our most profitable clients / job types / operatives? Whatever it is you want to know, JobFlow can tell you.
