A: With TidyStock, we have businesses that are distributors, people who are assembling products, and simply reselling products needing to use the stock management component.
TidyWork is about project management, job management, job costing, quoting through to taking on that job, managing it through the process when the project or job is won and passing the costs and invoices through to Xero.
We currently have a strong group of customers in the architectural, engineering consultancy (AEC) sector. We are growing this further with Joe Emanuele, an in-house specialist who brings to Tidy 25 years of experience within that sector. Between TidyWork (AEC) and TidyBuild we are making it possible for professional architects through to engineers and construction firms all to communicate and collaborate with each other during projects and increase productivity even further. Tidy embraces the Building Information Modelling (BIM) objectives and we continue to further Tidy’s capabilities in this area.
We have customers in the manufacturing industry, because a project for a manufacturer can be a very discreet one off large project or a large number of very small jobs through to quite complicated projects. For example, TidyWork is being used on one of the major refurbishments of a large New Zealand oil refinery, with literally hundreds of steel fabrication projects and hundreds of users.
We are finding in the UK that there is quite a community of large organisations doing design on large scale events, which need a lot of planning and involve a lot of costing stages. There are budgets associated with these events and these need to be managed closely through Tidy. These events last for a time, and then they have to be dismantled. From theatre and stage productions through to large scale outdoor/indoor events in London, Tidy is being used in those environments, which is quite interesting. It is quite a range, but they all have a project, stock or inventory management need. Tidy provides the process to manage these events. Control is essential to prevent costs going out of the window and avoid the event losing money.
