How did you hear about NextMinute?
I started working with NextMinute in the early days of Free Up and I think I was NextMinute’s first official partner. I can’t remember exactly how I found NextMinute – it would have either been through a client or the power of Google.
Tell us about how your trade clients worked before NextMinute?
Before NextMinute, in general my clients tried their best to have control over their business but this was often extremely manual. They would switch between a timesheet app, spreadsheets, Word documents and other systems, trying to piece together sensible ways of working.
Whilst they were making do with what they had, they weren’t working in the best possible way.
My clients always want to work better and smarter, but often they just do not know where to start or how to make it a reality. They see it as a chaotic mess, and I help them to break it down into priority areas that we can improve.
Was there a particular problem NextMinute helped solve for you or your client?
Every client is different. Sometimes they are very frustrated with their quoting processes, for others their back-office processes might be in a mess and for others it may be scheduling multiple small jobs that is causing a huge amount of frustration for them.
The beauty of NextMinute is that the system covers lots of different areas of the business and I can help them choose where we focus initially so we get the biggest bang for our buck.
