Powered Now - admin made easy

09 August 2022

To help reduce the amount of time a tradesperson spends doing paperwork, Trade Direct Insurance has partnered with Powered Now to offer exclusive support and access to their app. Powered Now is an affordable and easy-to-use app that lets you run your business on the go with quotes and invoices generated in minutes, and Trade Direct Insurance customers get two months free!

Powered Now is built for trade businesses. It has a central hub that gives access to templates for quickly creating professional invoices, quotes and certificates; a powerful diary and scheduling system; and team features that let you know where your team is and assign jobs. The platform can also submit VAT returns directly to HMRC (Making Tax Digital for VAT). With all paperwork in one place, the app supports excellent communication between the office, workforce, and customers and helps tradesmen manage their finances.

Use technology to control your finances and improve productivity

An efficient business is likely to be a more profitable one. Complete visibility of the money coming in and out of the company is critical to managing your cash flow. Powered Now has a Report and Finances feature that enables tradesmen to check their business performance by comparing sales vs costs, create charts, reports, export accounts and submit VAT returns. There are also helpful videos that show you how to use the app.

Managing your workload

Powered Now works best when you add your team. It means you can use some of the features that make Powered Now so useful, this includes:

  • Advanced Scheduling, add your teammates to jobs in the diary and keep everyone up to date.
  • Team Tracking, see all your jobs and team members on a map, perfect for routing and emergency jobs.
  • Team Chat lets you keep in touch with your team.

Notifications when customers open a quote or invoice

Powered Now has document tracking inbuilt; this means you will get an alert when your customers open your quotes or invoices.

A healthy cash flow is essential to every business, and Powered Now enables customers to accept or reject online so that you get a chance to discuss any rejected quotes quickly. You can even add work you have won to the schedule with a single click.

Invoices can also be paid instantly with our Sumup Chip and Pin integration.

Create professional, branded paperwork

Powered Now has over 20 great-looking templates for creating professional invoices, quotes and worksheets quickly. Add your own logo and send it via email and text. Everything is tracked within the app so you know when it's opened. They have more than 50 forms and certificates that include Gas Safety, Electrical, Construction, and many more.

Managing your outgoings

With many manufacturers announcing price rises, Powered Now has a budget function that makes it easier to identify where to cut back. Users can also check and cancel those products or services that they are paying for and not using.
