Last week's survey results...
 
 
  • We have tried some purpose made sign quoting software packages you see at the expo's, but found them expensive, problematic, slow service and hard to use. We were put onto a Software package called SmartTrade.
    Which does all you job tracking, costing, staff scheduling, invoicing etc. It is totally compatible with MYOB. It is New Zealand made and they respond straight away with any issues, updates every year and is cheaper then others we have tried. Been using it 4 years now, very stable programme, not long until its cloud ready. Would recommend it any day.
     
  • In relation to quoting software i can recommend M-Power fully adaptable quoting and production management program which can be customized to specific needs if required has customer login facility and real time tracking of all production and admin processes file attachment CRM right the way through to invoicing and compatible with curtain accounting software you can contact Nigel Davies at M-Power 0419673265
  • We use a basic Excel spreadsheet for all our estimating - it works well. Anybody with a basic knowledge of Excel. can put one of these together. Once done, save the file and just change the variables every time you use it. With Excel on the iPad, it is completely portable now too.
  • Excel spreadsheet - simple, free. You need to know the cost of your overheads and the estimated costs of the specific job you are costing, so just add the margin you wish to make and hey presto you have your quote.It has served us well for many years.
  • There are many options for the person who provided this survey. Some sophisticated solutions that can carry quite a price tag and there are also some basic ones - suggest you just ask Dr Google - he will be able to list some options for you.

Smile: It's only Monday!

Graeme is on his death bed and knows the end is near.
 His nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons are with him at his home in London.
 He asks for 2 independent witnesses to be present and a camcorder be in place to record his last wishes.
 When all is ready he begins to speak:
 "My son, Bernie, I want you to take the Mayfair houses."
 "My daughter, Sybil, you take the apartments over in the East end."
 "My son, Jamie, I want you to take the offices over in the City."
 "Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the banks of the Thames ."
 The nurse and witnesses are blown away. They did not realize the extent of his holdings.
 Graeme slips away, the nurse says to his wife,
 "Mrs Smith, my deepest condolences.Your husband must have been such a hard-working and wonderful man to have accumulated all this property..............
 "Property be buggered?" his wife replies......................
 "He had a bloody window cleaning and mowing round."
