BigChange Lifts the Weight of Job Management for Upholstery2u
Gym equipment repair specialist Upholstery2u, is using the latest technology to streamline workflows and boost customer service levels. Supplied by BigChange, the complete job management platform dynamically schedules work for a nationwide team of upholsterers which is shared, via an app, to mobile phones that synchronise in real time with the back-office solution. Since implementing BigChange, Upholstery2u has seen a marked improvement in its SLA reporting and customer feedback, and has also reduced the administrative resource required to manage the mobile operation.
“We chose BigChange as it was relevant to our industry with many features that suit our specific needs,” commented Daniel Boyle, Managing Director of Upholstery2u. “Having said that, it is also extremely user friendly and flexible which means we can make changes and tweaks if we need to.
“Since implementing BigChange we have noticed a difference in every aspect of the business,” he continued. “BigChange takes care of the routine, time consuming tasks, which allows us to focus on what we do best – getting the job done and keeping our customers happy.
“Using BigChange we can automatically schedule and track our team. In turn, they have more control over their workload with job completion reporting, photo sharing and stock requests, all available through the app on their phone. Our SLA monitoring and customer service is better, and customers can self-serve with live tracking and completion reports.”
