Company Profile: Contracting Kings

Over the coming months, we will be interviewing companies to discuss how MoneyPen has changed the way they do business.

This month, we're chatting with Contracting Kings, which is run by Kevin King, my nephew. Kevin has worked closely with me in the creation and expansion of the MoneyPen system, so he is uniquely qualified to discuss MoneyPen, and how it has become the perfect solution for his specific business issues.

Contracting Kings

About Contracting Kings:

Contracting Kings (www.contractingkings.com.au) has been in business for 25 years, and has 12 employees.  They are an electrical contracting company servicing domestic, industrial and commercial clients in Gippsland. 

Why Contracting Kings needed MoneyPen:

Mr. King was finding that he had two central business challenges:  The first was the amount of time his team lost doing paperwork.  The second was invoicing - getting invoices out and money in was a constant headache.

How MoneyPen helped Mr. King overcome his mountain of paperwork and invoicing difficulties:

MoneyPen streamlined invoicing, providing automated solutions for Kevin's team to choose their materials and create an invoice quickly and easily.  All prices for materials are digitally stored, so you know you're charging the correct rates, every time.

The other big change that MoneyPen made to Mr. King's business was in job organisation: with MoneyPen's job automation features, the entire process become more efficient, and less time consuming.

Contracting Kings on the main benefits of MoneyPen:

When we asked Mr. King what the main benefits of MoneyPen were for his company, he answered the following:

  • Improved job communication with employees and clients

  • Increased work through providing clients with online access to my business

  • Improved invoicing - "we now often get invoices out the same day"!

How Mr. King would describe MoneyPen:

"Awesome!  It's like night and day. When we started, we were running a 'paper factory' to now I'm able to run the business from anywhere I can get to a PC."

Tips & Tricks: 5 Ways to Create a Work Request

Here at MoneyPen, we realise a lot of your time gets eaten up dealing with work requests: scheduling jobs, calling back and forth with clients, confirming, rescheduling, etc.  Work requests pay the bills, but think of how much time you could spend on billable work if you didn't have to spend so much time organising!

That's why MoneyPen makes it as easy as possible to manage work requests.  MoneyPen takes on all of the automated scheduling tasks, so you don't have to.  In addition to scheduling, it has the ability to keep everyone in the loop at all times. 

We are therefore proud to present five ways that MoneyPen can help streamline work requests for you.

1. Registered Users:

  Any registered user can create a work request in the MoneyPen system.

This work request will automatically inform everyone that has been specified of the nature of the request, and the scheduled time of the job - it can even notify "the boss", or any employee, of urgent jobs.  This method is primarily aimed at your office staff - they can organise jobs in a single mouse click. 

2. Digital Paper:

  On the road, and without a PC?  Our Digital Paper gives you the ability to quickly record a work request no matter where you are.  Click 'send' on the form and your pen strokes are sent to your MoneyPen account via your mobile phone.


3. Setup an Email Address:

  With MoneyPen, you can set up a dedicated email address to 'catch' any emailed work request.  Clients automatically receive a confirmation, and the job is automatically created.

4. Client Request Form on your Website:

  With MoneyPen, you get a free custom form to link to your website, where your client can enter the details of their job themselves.  Just tell callers to visit your website and ensure you get the exact contact and work details every time.  

5. Personal Client MoneyPen Login:

  Any client can have their own personal "client portal" for your business.  This lets your preferred clients create their own work requests, check the status of work in progress, and see their invoices and payment status.  Best of all - it keeps you out of the process!
