Automation is not just about fancy robotics or smart systems, it begins with automating the smaller, more straight forward tasks and processes that waste tons of your time. For example, if you are spending hours every month updating records and chasing invoicing there is a much better way to do this.

Our Invoice Processor tool will automatically digitise all invoices and consolidate invoices from a variety of sources faster and with fewer errors than any manual process. You can set this up in 30 minutes and free yourself up for more productive work like interacting with customers.

Automation and digitalisation of invoice processing will save time and reduce human error.

Getting ahead of the game

Automation can help with identifying opportunities and growing your construction business. We are operating in uncertain times so anything you can do to bring in new opportunities makes good business sense. If you can automate it, all the better.

We can show you how to automate how you receive relevant procurement and tender opportunities saving tons of time. Our Social Media Listening tool automates how you monitor what people are saying about your firm, what’s is going on with competitors and be kept up to date at a wider industry level.

Greater collaboration, greater efficiency

Like many other SMEs in the construction industry, you have probably had to deal with furloughing staff and adjusting to remote working. In fact, as much as 56% of UK businesses will continue remote working so it’s time to get our automation tools working for you.

Our Productive Meetings tool can support your remote team and external partners more efficiently. You can generate meeting notes automatically and they are searchable by all, saving buckets of valuable time. This is handy for anyone who cannot make the meeting or those who simply wants to look up the actions at a later date.

56% of UK businesses will continue remote working making collaboration and meeting tools even more important.
