Need new rubber? We have a deal for you

· · Posted in Partnerships

Jonathan from here at head office was on his way to work recently when he realised he needed a new car tyre. Wondering if there might be some kind of mobile tyre service, he arrived at work, and with a quick search of the interweb found Road Runner Mobile Tyres.

A short while later their ‘Pit Crew’ arrived here at the office to replace the tyre and realised it was the very same company that builds the software they use on the road every day.

Oh you’re ‘that’ simPRO – mate, we love Connect!

Technology: now you see it, soon you won’t

· · Posted in Business

Wearable technology is upon us. Hardware such as Google Glass appears to be leading the way but while the industry is in full swing it is still in fact early days. The late Mark Weiser’s predictions of Ubiquitous computing are particularly pertinent to the current state of things. While there’s no denying Glass is a digital milestone, it is but one step toward a more transparent computing experience.

Ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) is an advanced computing concept where computing is made to appear everywhere and anywhere. In contrast to desktop computing, ubiquitous computing can occur using any device, in any location, and in any format.

All of our workers go to each job with an iPad and are able to access everything they need. The software ensures no leads are lost, job progression is monitored and each job is invoiced on time.
