Tradesoft

Requirements


We were initially approached by a construction firm looking to get some software to help run their business.

they were looking for a solution that would manage their customer contact data, estimation, scheduling, invoicing, health & safety, take client sign off, collect testimonials, keep track of job costs, manage materials, track location of tools, integrate with accounting software and track their staff locations.

After detailing the full specification we first did a whole of market review to see if there was any software on the market already that would deliver what they required without any investment, there is no point in building a solution that has already been done. But unfortunately there was nothing available that did everything they required and so their only alternative was to build it.

They were so blown away by what we designed and delivered they retained us to further develop the software into a SAAS solution that they could then make available for any construction business to use.

 

 

Project Overview


We started the project with a full, in-depth design phase which looked at all the required functionality and how it needed to interconnect to get the best possible flow when in use. Once this was done we then looked at the user interface (How the system actually looks) and we designed every screen that the system would use when complete. Went through numerous revisions at this stage until we had all of the required features blended into a sleek and modern looking interface that would be easy to use. We also put a lot of thought into how it would look and function on mobile devices as we believed they would make up a sizeable part of the overall users of the platform.

Functionality


The software is packed full of functionality, including; CRM, business intelligence dashboards, internal messaging system, calendars, stock and materials management, equipment and plant management, media library, project management tools, estimation tools, scheduling system, invoicing, time sheet management, GPS staff and job location tracking and financial reporting.

We built the Tradesoft solution using the modern PHP framework Laravel, that along with other popular web technologies allows the users to access the software from any internet enabled device anywhere in the world. By using this framework and in addition to using industry leading fast and secure cloud servers from Amazon Web Services the system will be capable of coping with hundreds of thousands of concurrent users.

We are currently working on iOS and Android app’s for workers using the system which should be completed and launched by the end of Q2 2018

 

Launch


Tradesoft launched version 1 to fantastic reviews in September 2016 and has continued development since then to continually release more features, new functionality and improve the overall user experience for its customers.

We all really enjoy working on Tradesoft and we look forward to all the future developments we have in the pipeline to keep this a world class, industry leading solution.
