Sorting through estimates, invoices, and other business paperwork is a time drain for tradespeople. Unfortunately, letting that paperwork fall by the wayside isn’t an option for business owners, either. YourTradeBase is a web-based application that provides tools for tradespeople who are looking for ways to simplify their business paperwork and spend more time actually growing their companies.
YourTradeBase claims it can save tradespeople between four and eight hours a week on paperwork. Rather than manually generating estimates and invoices from scratch in Excel or Word, you can use YourTradeBase’s templates to automate your billing processes. Just enter your business information once, and YourTradeBase will include it on all future invoices and estimates. Financial totals are calculated automatically, and invoices can quickly be emailed or printed and sent to clients. YourTradeBase will notify you when a client’s payment is overdue or when an estimate hasn’t been confirmed, cutting down on the time it takes you to manually manage these tasks by hand.
A list of overdue tasks is always provided to show what paperwork needs your immediate attention, and job status updates make it easy to see where you’re at with each client on your roster. YourTradeBase’s complete application is available to use on any laptop, desktop, tablet, or smartphone, which means that in many cases you’re able to generate and send bills to clients before you’ve even left the job site.
