While established processes can improve workplace productivity, an electronic workflow, designed for electrical businesses, will further streamline your operations, improve communication, boost efficiency and help you save money.

How an Electronic Workflow for Electricians Saves Time and Money
360e is a simple-to-use software program developed for electricians. It combines all the tools necessary to manage your business into a robust, intuitive program that your staff can access from almost any device that connects to the with an Internet connection, including tablets and smartphones. 360e is customized for your business, supporting your efforts to improve customer service, reduce errors, boost productivity, simplify data entry and retrieval, and generate reports to identify your strengths, areas of improvement and company progress. Here’s how it works:
- Reduce paperwork: Consider the time required to complete paperwork, file it, send copies and retrieve the files. Then consider the cost to purchase paper products and organizational supplies. The average office employee uses up to 10,000 sheets of copy paper annually. Of this paper, 45 percent of it ends up in the recycle bin at the end of the day. In addition to these expenses, locating or recreating lost documents can cost an average of $122.
With 360e, paperless is not only possible, it’s simple. In a matter of minutes, 360e creates accurate estimates and invoices that you can be shared with a client via email. Rather than tediously log activities and re-file the paperwork, users can simply enter information into 360e while in the field. Document management features also allow you to upload photos and scanned documents, make job-related changes, manage permits, and log notes without ever stepping foot in an office. The stored information can be viewed in real-time, allowing both big picture and detailed analyses at any moment.
- Improved communication: Crafting emails, searching for client contact information, and requesting job status updates can take time. 360e simplifies communication by storing all contact details within one database, making it easy to call or email with the simple tap of the screen. In addition, the app allows you to send and receive messages and reminder alerts to employees.
- Eliminate double entry: Traditionally, workers fill out a service request or invoice in the field before entering the data into an office computer. Double entries take time and increase the potential for human error.
With 360e, a field worker enters necessary information into the app just one time. The program instantly applies that information to all the relevant documents in the respective account.
- Simplify scheduling and time tracking: 360e eliminates error-prone scheduling calendars and employee timecards, enabling you to avoid double-booking an employee or fret over payroll and billing inconsistencies. Employees clock in and out using the application, while 360e uses the information to produce client invoices and time management-related reports.
