simPRO integrates with BGW Group
simPRO’s link with BGW Group will allow for the automatic importing of business information directly into simPRO’s system, meaning tradespeople working with BGW Group and using simPRO software in Australia will have no need to manually transfer important pricing and invoicing.
The integration will also provide automatic and continuous catalogue updates, ensuring the most up-to-date information on prices are available.
simPRO chief technology officer Jonathan Eastgate says the integration is another move towards making the trade service industry as streamlined as possible for its members.
“Time spent on administrative tasks, especially data transfer and electronic filing, is time taken from a business’ ability to service clients and obtain new projects,” Jonathan says.
“Trade service contractors affiliated with our new partner, BGW Group, who use simPRO Service and Enterprise in Australia, will be able to log into their online account and see that their invoices and price lists will always be up to date.”
BGW Group is a major supplier of goods and services to trade service industries across Australia, and will begin its integration with simPRO software through its businesses, Sherriff Electrical Wholesalers, CNW Electrical Wholesale and Samios Plumbing Supplies.
BGW Group chief information officer David Dean says the integration will help establish a new framework for efficiency, which will produce a ripple effect for the whole industry.
“In this business, it is vital that things are done as efficiently as possible. It is a tale all too familiar where a job has been held up by logistical issues caused by administration delays,” David says.
“We are excited to be integrating with simPRO because it means we are ironing out the bumps in the job process and making everything that little bit more convenient, and when the process is easier for one, then the positive effects are felt by everyone.”
