In a RoofersCoffeeShop® Read, Listen, Watch (RLW™), RCS President Heidi J. Ellsworth visits with Steven White, Eugene Zukowski and Scott Keith from Jobba Trade Technologies to talk about how contractors can achieve a better-running business by unifying their data and discuss why this single source of truth is so important to optimizing your business.
“Going from this paper world to adding applications has quickly grown from one application to 15 plus applications,” says Scott Keith, Jobba CEO. So many contractors spend hours purchasing and implementing new software applications and find their systems have become siloed. Rather than saving time as promised with this technology, contractors find themselves copying data across all these systems which lets errors, delays and frustration affect the bottom line.
“The Jobba story starts with what we hear from customers every day,” says Steven White, Jobba CMO. “If you look at the major frustration that roofers have, it's the amount of information, the amount of process and paperwork that they have to deal with."
Jobba’s original platform is designed to be the solution to this problem.“Jobba is bringing together all of those usually disconnected parts, helping them talk together, unifying it on one single platform,” says Steven. The software is organized to reduce the number of third-party applications and provides a bi-directional technology API (application programming interface) for the remaining third-party applications, so that all of your data to show up across platforms.
“If you really want to improve the overall workflow and make it seamless, you need to know what information resides where, when it needs to move there, and who is the master record of information,” says Scott. Jobba serves as that single piece of software to unite all third-party applications. In other words, Jobba actually lets these technologies work for you, saving you the headache of copying data or hunting down where it is by putting it in one space.
“It's about opening up possibilities to really let the contractors work the way they need to work,” says Eugene Zukowski, VP of marketing. “Really what we've done with this integration is allow contractors to take their data and let them tell a story that makes sense to help them run their business.”
