GeoOp helped Fiedler Brothers Plumbing streamline their team and reduce paper-based processes.

No matter the trade you’re in, paperwork and filing is a necessary chore. And for Fiedler Brothers Plumbing, it was no different: Admin was piling up yet there was no time to do it. They needed a solution – something that was easy to implement without breaking the bank.

Fiedler Brothers Plumbing invested in a set of connected tablets that their team could use while onsite. Each tablet can be controlled by management at head office creating a network of communication. Tradesmen can also take photos of jobs, helping show progress, issues and the finished product.

Get the job done

Todd Fiedler fitted each tablet with GeoOp™– a mobile app which simplifies staff and management jobs thanks to a shared mobile data plan.

GeoOp allows business owners who work with mobile workforces to manage their team centrally. Staff members can also choose new jobs based on location, and get directions to help them get there on time.

To save time, GeoOp tracks parts and invoices, meaning staff can make decisions and site to keep work flowing.

More work, less stress

Actioning quotes, attending plumbing emergencies and accepting new jobs is easier with GeoOp. It tracks incoming jobs and outgoing costs, so the distribution of work is simple and efficient. As a new job comes in, it can be assigned to any one of the offsite tradesmen – it helps the employees work autonomously and productively.

Integral to any business, GeoOp helps keep the boss connected to the wider team. And for Todd Fiedler, he needs to be kept in the loop. His tradesmen can check in as jobs progress, plus they can take photos and attach them to jobs in the app.

From parts to tools, every job is different. GeoOp helps tradesmen communicate with head office to check supplies and costs of materials.

With more time to manage the business, and less time sorting through invoices, contracts and receipts, Todd Fiedler is now able to spend more time growing his business.
