Designed for How Tradesmen Work
Onsite 7 is designed for how tradesmen work.
Let’s start with the app. This is available on iPhone and Android and can be linked to your Gallery so that photos and videos can be uploaded fast. The same goes for iPad and Android tablets. The app is super-smooth and logically laid out.
The desktop client is just as good. This provides a clear view of your jobs with a main dashboard that can contain a Calendar View of jobs or the Jobs Dashboard. You can edit, add and amend jobs within both dashboards.
The Jobs Dashboard has a colour-coded job view which lets you see all jobs in progress at a glance, while the Calendar View lets you view jobs by day, week and month, view job details and monitor where your team is and who is assigned.
Your Onsite 7 users (workers) can add their own information to jobs, including documents, photos, comments and progress updates. Everything is recorded and stored in the cloud, enabling collaboration and easy job management from central control.
Job Management and Scheduling
The beauty of Onsite 7 is it rolls job management and team management up into a single software platform. You can add as many users as you like, assign them to jobs, and let them record job information.
If you are a tradesman operating your own business, you can assign yourself jobs. Onsite 7 is ideal for sole traders and large companies alike.
With Onsite 7, you can:
- Create a job in minutes
- Switch between commercial or domestic jobs
- Allocate to a customer/client
- Add notes / attachments / job descriptions + much more
- Add bespoke onsite checklists / tasks in seconds
- Select stage of a job EG. Sales, Survey, Installation, Service
- Allocate job to an onsite contractor / engineer and submit

When jobs are created, you can:
- Review job notes / images / photos / videos
- Instantly see if a job has been delayed / changed, and why
- Understand if a job is complete or not complete
- View every stage, visit, team member comment & entire job detail
- Put your business in control from start to finish
Now, if you only wanted to create jobs with assigned dates, you could do this without job management software using nothing more than a calendar app.
Onsite 7 does so much more. It is a complete solution for managing your jobs, from the sales and invoice stage to installation and maintenance stages.
