The arboriculture industry is more complex than you might think; there is a lot of knowledge, planning and natural hazards that can derail an otherwise simple job. There are also many risks involved in the arbour industry, especially when dealing with height-risk work on tall trees and climbing botanicals.
Running an arbour business can be very complex and time-consuming, and a good arborist must have a lot of skill sets and good business nous, including:
- Extensive knowledge of different trees, plants and other botanicals
- Well-structured OH&S and operation protocols
- The ability to observe and isolate hazards in multiple directions
- Effective job quoting skills
- Time management skills
- Job and staff management organisation
- Equipment tracking and maintenance protocols
- Bookkeeping skills and much more
For a job that sounds simple in nature, it is quite the undertaking and not for the fainthearted.
If only there were an all-in-one job management software program designed for high-risk industries like arboriculture. Well, thanks to JGID, there is. Read on to learn more about JGID.
Custom job management software
JGID, short for just get it done, is a complete job management software program for high-risk industries such as height safety work like arborists. Before JGID, many arborists and high-risk workers, like rope access technicians, required multiple business management programs to run their businesses.
These software programs could include systems for :
- Quoting for arborists
- Scheduling for arborists
- Invoicing for arborists
- Timesheets and staff payments for arborists
- Equipment management for arborists
- Bookkeeping and more for arborists
Often, these software systems could not be integrated or linked, costing hours of extra time for business owners and making it difficult to keep track of all business parameters.
JGID has been designed and developed with research and liaising with members of the high-risk work community, creating an all-in-one job and equipment management software that can be tailored to the needs of high-risk business operators like arborists.
JGID job management software: Just Get It Done
JGID is a front-to-back job management program that can take care of every aspect of your high-risk businesses, like arborists, whether you are a pair of garden clean-up professionals or a team of 100-arboriculture rope access specialists taking down giants.
From initial quoting to tenders, on-site approvals, to equipment management software, JGID has all the business management tools necessary to just get it done.
Arborist job management software
Arborists spend much of their time on-site, making JGID the perfect job management software program to easily manage your whole business remotely.
The JGID dashboard gives you a helicopter view of your entire business, with intuitive controls and an easy-to-follow graphic user interface (GUI). As a remote arborist, you can access every part of your business from any remote smart device, including smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Examples of operations you can make from the JGID dashboard include: :
- Active jobs and staff activities
- Active quotes and opportunities
- Completed and outstanding invoices
- Completed current and future tasks
- Incoming and outgoing equipment
- Stock levels
- Staff hours and wages
- Scheduled audits and more
This program can be accessed by all authorised team members and updates in real-time, giving you unprecedented remote control of your daily operations with one program.
On-site and remote quoting has never been more accurate, reliable or streamlined with JGID job management software features. Estimators can quote accurately every time, with all data funnelled into one system working in sync with your inventory and equipment, ensuring no misquotes and no customer guarantees that get overlooked.
The ability for JGID to receive online approvals means you can quote and have the customer sign off on-site. Once the quote is finalised, a copy of the invoice with detailed job descriptions is sent to all concerned parties.
If the tender is accepted, the foremost authority can sign either on your staff’s device on-site or remotely via a smart device, and work can begin on schedule.
JGID’s scheduling system features a drag and drop system that makes it easy to plan your daily operations, with real-time updates of your staff’s daily movements and workload.
Our scheduling program gives you a bird’s-eye view of your daily business operations, such as:
- The scope of work
- Equipment checks and pick lists
- Job hazard analysis reports
- On-site contacts and job information
- The allocated job times and more
This comprehensive and easy-to-understand scheduling system can save hours of lost time and stress by streamlining your daily workflow.
If you are self-employed and running a small arborist business, then staff management may be as easy as just getting to the job punctually. However, if you manage a crew of arboriculture experts, you may need to be a little more systematic.
The JGID staff management software feature simplifies staff hours, making timesheets, wages and payments stress-free.
JGID features a GPS-stamped clock in and out function, allowing your staff to check in and out remotely from their mobile device. This can avoid unnecessary commute times to the office, and less need for staff briefings, as all job information is attached to the job file, allowing your staff to get to the job and start work independently.
Accounts, invoices and payments
An arborist’s work is heavily affected by seasonal weather changes. As a result, work can get extremely busy at certain times of the year, making keeping track of accounts, invoices and payments more hectic than usual.
JGID allows you to automate the entire process, with customers receiving emailed invoices as soon as the job has been signed off, allowing clients to pay online via BPAY or credit card. Payments can also be made on-site via smartphone or tablet without needing a device like an EFTPOS machine or chip reading device.
No more chasing clients at the EOM and EOFY, no more losing track of outstanding payments during busy periods, just automated, easy payments and account management.
Equipment management software
Arbory requires a lot of high-risk equipment, such as:
- Hand saws
- Wood chippers
- Trailers and more
This equipment puts in some hard-working hours and requires regular maintenance and safety checks.
JGID’s RFID equipment management software Allows you to keep track of all tools and equipment, pre-assigning equipment to jobs in the system on pick lists, and keep track of maintenance schedules.
Not only does this system allow you to track and maintain your equipment, but JGID RFID equipment management software can also:
- Store all equipment details
- Assign PDF photos & manuals to track tags
- Send notification when equipment audits are due
- Manage and track equipment loans and returns
- pre-assign equipment and stock to gear list ahead of schedule and more
JGID equipment management software improves your workflow, provides safer equipment to your staff and ensures your assets are safe and secure.
Customer relationship management
JGID allows you to scale your business and maintain customer service levels by providing full CRM capabilities and all the data you need to drive your business forward.
This critical business data allows you to:
- Scale business development
- Maintain and improve customer service
- Increase profitability
- Streamline productivity
- Collect and generate data analytics and more
JGIDS’s effective CRM allows you to maintain positive relationships with regular clients while providing you with information that helps you transcend your business development expectation, with less stress and time spent guessing your way through your future marketing.
Suppose you have a marketing provider or a business development team. In that case, this data can also be isolated and emailed to concerned parties, ensuring your collected CRM information is working for you, rather than just getting lost in a sea of other business figures and paperwork.
