With the online appointment booking feature, customers can easily schedule appointments at their preferred time, eliminating the hassle of making phone calls or sending emails.
Your customers can view their historic and upcoming appointments in one location. This provides a clear overview of their scheduled visits, allowing them to plan their time effectively and see who's going to be attending their appointments with visible credentials of that employee.
Improve your team management and communications
With our in-built HR system, you can assign jobs to engineers, in-built chat, project/job updates, time tracking, store documents safely and more! With our HR system you can:
Store important documents safely in the cloud:
You can record names and addresses and contact details for all of your staff, but there’s much more. You can upload documents proving their right to work such as passports and also add records of qualifications, driving licences etc. The information that you gathered when you recruited them can be stored safely along with any notes relating to appraisals or disciplinary matters. All of this can become paperless so things are much easier to find when they’re needed.
Employees' leave and absence tracking:
When these are recorded they will appear in the diary, preventing scheduling conflicts. In addition, there are reports which enable a view of any particular employee or all employees.
You can see all of these absences in the current year, the last year and the next year. Individual employees are able to look at their own records.
The most comprehensive and up-to-date certificates
