A relatively new company, Pat and Matthew Garvey took the advice of their accountant to increase productivity and efficiency when they acquired the former stainless steel fabrication division of Tenix. To keep overheads down they decided on low-cost pay-by-month cloud-based software systems, and signed up with TidyWork job tracking and project planning for operations and Xero for the company’s accounts.
FNE now do all quotes on TidyWork as well. Matthew Garvey appreciates the simplicity and commercial benefits of quoting with TidyWork: “I’ve done half a dozen quotes using TidyWork and we have won all of them. I can’t believe how long it used to take before. And we get a better breakdown on our projects – nothing is hidden. Our biggest dairy client Fonterra (the world’s biggest dairy products exporter) says our quotes are leading the way amongst their contractors. Everything is up-front and honest, which is good for us and for our clients.”
