simPRO Mobile Module Releases

2019 saw not just one, but two (!) new modules released for our innovative simPRO Mobile solution.

Designed to streamline the communication of important job and project information and maximise time in the field, simPRO Mobile is a cornerstone business application for our users.

The release of the Timesheets module at the start of the year meant that simPRO Mobile also became a key tool for ensuring accuracy and consistency in timesheets. It made for easier and more succinct timesheet management and enabled better reporting on staff hours.

Off the back of the Timesheets module came the Service module - one of our biggest and most exciting releases of 2019.

The functionality offered by the Service module is unmatched. It caters to a considerable range of in-the-field workflows, stopping just short of doing the manual labour for field staff!

With real-time sync between office and field, live schedule updates, job details and full service history, the Service module empowers field staff to deliver exceptional customer service.

In addition to the expansion of the simPRO Mobile product, simPRO also welcomed a number of partners to their suite of integrations, including Square Payments.

With faster payment, easy setup and powerful hardware, Square offers simPRO users some of the best functionality for taking and receiving payment from customers.

This integration introduced new levels of efficiency to taking payments with simPRO, and gave our users the opportunity to optimise their in the field workflows ever further - exciting!

We also introduced our integration with Zapier this year, the ultimate tool to get your different software solutions talking.

simPRO as business software is designed to grow with your enterprise. As such, we knew we needed a tool that would enable our customers to get more from their business data.

We released the BI Reporting tool for those users who are familiar with business analytics and SQL. It is an exciting advancement for those looking to do even more business reporting because of its unique and flexible functionality.

Included with a simPRO licence, BI Reporting enables our users to:

  • Question, filter and group their simPRO data to uncover deeper connections in their business operations.
  • Visualise data with graphs and charts.
  • Design business intelligence dashboards to collaborate, organise and share learnings with other members of their team.
