Managing all incoming job requests can be difficult when you have a number of field workers across the country. One of the best features of implementing WorkPal’s mobile workforce management software is having the ability to schedule future jobs based on live status updates.

Our unique drag and drop technology allows users to make changes much easier and faster, with live updates being sent to the assigned engineers.
Quotes & Invoicing
Staying on top of quotations and invoicing is an essential process of any business. Often, paperwork can be missed and jobs can be lost or unpaid due to paperwork mishandling. Using our software allows you to stay on top of budgets and provide accurate quotations by maintaining real-time cost history against particular assets and monitor performance. Invoices are automatically generated and sent to the customer based on the job information. WorkPal integrates with various financial packages including Xero, Quickbooks and Sage.
One of our best performing and most popular mobile workforce management software features is the ability for users to manage assets. From fleet maintenance to heavy industrial machinery, WorkPal allows you to monitor and track the service history and movement of business assets. Our built-in asset scanning feature enables your mobile workforce to scan a QR or bar code and identify specific assets, see a full service/works history, record any current faults and record any materials used. This streamlines the maintenance and repair process, making future works much easier for the next engineer.
