These days it’s getting harder and harder to find a tradie willing and able to come out quickly and quote for a job let alone find the time to be available to let them in. Now a revolutionary new app resolves this issue, and it’s proving to be a win/win for property owners and tradies alike.
Whether you have a problem that needs fixing (and DIY just won’t cut it) or you’re renovating, as so many seem to be doing right now, it’s getting increasingly difficult to find a tradesperson who is available to come out and quote when you need them to. Add to this the challenge of someone having to be on the premises during business hours and the safety concerns while the threat of COVID-19 still lingers and it’s easy to see why this is becoming such a challenge.
Tradespeople are struggling with their own challenges when it comes to quoting. One of the most time-consuming tasks for any trade professional is the quoting process. According to recent research, one in four tradies knocked back work in the last twelve months due to the time spent working on quotes and administrative tasks. There is no question that quoting is enormously time-consuming, especially driving to and from a customer’s property and the time it takes to accurately assess the job and write up the quote.
An Australian company has come to the rescue. They have developed an app that uses cutting edge technology to help trade professionals provide an accurate quote quickly without having to visit the property. This means you don’t have to take time off work as the quoting process can be done at a time that suits you, including after hours. It also prevents strangers from entering your property, including concerns about touching surfaces etc., and no need to wait for days or even weeks to receive the quote!
Called ‘RemoteQuote’, the app uses live high definition video streaming technology, digital and AR measuring devices, and an automated quote builder to assess, measure and price the job. This can include anything from plumbing and non-urgent electrical issues to painting, wall and ceiling repair and landscaping, to name just a few. The technology is so powerful that the tradie sees exactly what you see and take photos, instruct the customer to measure and check what they need to without physically being onsite.
How RemoteQuote works
Activating and using RemoteQuote couldn’t be easier.
- The tradesperson sends RemoteQuote as an SMS and Email link to your mobile phone.
- Clicking on the secure link begins the live streaming session.
- The tradesperson guides you to measure and take photos where necessary.
- End the session.
- The platform helps the tradesperson automatically generate and send a detailed quote.
- Receive the quote, accept it and book in a date for the work to be done.
With RemoteQuote, there’s no need to take time off or wait ages for a quote. So next time you need a tradie to quote on a job, ask them if they use RemoteQuote, the fastest, most efficient and accurate way to connect, measure and quote.
