New Faster, Easier Access to Certificates

Whilst digital certificates are just one of the many benefits of using Vancert’s Job Management software, for some they are considered its key feature. And for those who manage their diaries on the go, sometimes a job many not be pre-booked and a single certificate is all that’s required from an appointment.

That’s why we’ve added a brand new feature, allowing users to generate standalone certificates directly form the app’s homepage without having to first raise a job.

At VanCert we speak to 100's of Engineers & Maintenance companies daily. We listen to their challenges and develop our software in order to help them overcome those challenges.

This Blog aims to delve into the top three concerns we are hearing lately Heating, Plumbing & Maintenance Companies with field based Engineers and provides examples of how some of our customers have overcome those challenges.

It’s a no brainer really…if you reduce your costs (and overheads) you will be able to provide a more competitive service to your customers.

If you have 5, 10, 15+ engineers out on the road, one of the key ways to immediately reduce costs would be to reduce fuel expenses.

Holdcroft Heating save Housing Association contract £60,000 using Vancert

Holdcroft Heating are a family run business based in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent. They provide gas central heating installations as well as services and breakdowns from servicing an old gas fire to repairing a broken boiler and are dedicated to delivering a superior service with superior materials for their customers.

For over 25 years, Holdcroft had relied on the traditional method of paper based gas certificates and job sheets to manage their operations. When jobs came in they would be input into an Excel spreadsheet and telephoned across to the engineers.

As the business grew, problems began to arise with internal processes including time expensive administration work for both office staff and engineers, delays in receiving job sheets & reports and low quality paperwork that was often misplaced or lost.

Whether you’re a sole trader wasting your evenings catching up on paperwork or you’re running a maintenance company with 100 engineers and large housing contracts - field based operations can be an administrative nightmare. 

That’s why, at VanCert, we offer a complete job management software solution that will save you tons of time, effort and money.
