We've been working hard the past few months, and the time is finally right to open up WorkWeek to service businesses everywhere. We've been sharing some posts over the last few months about business, our thoughts on making things better, and why we're building WorkWeek.
Today, we want to give you a quick look at what we're doing, and where we're going next.
Batteries now included
There are a lot of businesses out there who frequently learn valuable lessons by making costly mistakes, or are pulled in a dozen different directions using a different app or service to manage different parts of their business. Our mission is to serve these people and, with the support of a platform of purpose-built, all-in-one, easy-to-use tools, help them learn how to successfully start, run, and grow a healthy business.
We believe day-to-day management of small service businesses shouldn't last longer than a cup of coffee. Or a beer, if that's your thing. We're set on making that happen for small businesses everywhere.
Here's a look at what's available for you now when you join WorkWeek.
Zero-effort website, instantly
WorkWeek instantly builds and maintains a professional website that grows with your business. No need to hire a web designer or developer to get a great website. We build a site specifically designed for your business in minutes. Best of all, we keep it updated for you, so you never even have to think about it. It's even available right away during your free trial!
More importantly, when your trial is up and you add your credit card to your WorkWeek account, we'll work with you to get a custom domain name specifically for your business—at no additional charge. We'll handle all the domain registration and setup necessary to point it to your website so you won't have to worry about a thing.
Here's a glimpse of what your site could look like:
The most important thing in running your business day-to-day is knowing exactly what's going on today. For that, there's nothing quite as easy as WorkWeek's Today view.
Today is the hub of your business activity. Here we bring together a look at what your day is looking like with appointments listed & plotted on a map. Sometimes weather can impact your ability to get a job done, so we always let you know what the weather is looking like in your service area.
Beyond the day's events, Today also gives you a quick look at some important business information in the Open Jobs Summary. This provides you with instant insight into how many jobs are open, total value of invoices you have due in the next week, total value of estimated jobs that are pending, as well as total amount of past due invoices.
Jobs are the core of any service business, and WorkWeek is built entirely around your jobs. Having trouble keeping up with what jobs are in progress, paid for, or overdue? WorkWeek keeps your jobs under control. Our tools make it easy to schedule your work, keep client information at your fingertips, provide quick and painless estimates and invoices, and more—all the things you need to manage your jobs all the way to completion.
Ready to ditch your day planner? WorkWeek keeps your schedule straight. In addition to the Today view, our scheduling and calendar tools make managing your appointments easier than they've ever been. With simple month and week views, you'll always be on top of what's next.
Estimates & Invoices
WorkWeek helps you get paid for your work. We make pricing and billing jobs simple and easy. You'll be able to create and send professional estimates and invoices to customers in no time. Keep tabs on that invoice until it's paid—we'll show you when the customer viewed it, and we'll even remind them to pay you.
Good customer relationships are the lifeblood of your business. With WorkWeek, you’ll be able to see each customer’s past jobs, any appointments, notes, as well as estimates and invoices. We’ll show you how much you’ve made from each customer, and even help you send out emails to notify customers of special deals going on. Need to drum up some work in a slow season? We can help with that, too.
What's coming next?
This is just the start of where WorkWeek is going. There are quite a number of new things that we're currently working through to make available to our users.
We know everyone relies on their phones and tablets, and we're committed to bringing the best parts of WorkWeek's easy-to-use tools to your pockets. We're working with our early users to identify the most important tools and workflows that can help service businesses like you get things done—without getting in your way. If you'd like to be part of helping define what WorkWeek does on your mobile devices, you should join WorkWeek today and become part of the conversation.
We believe that even the smallest businesses need to know just how well their business is doing. And we're working on some great insight & reporting tools that are going to help you keep a better eye on jobs, customers, estimates & invoices, miles traveled, income earned, and more. We'll be using these tools to help you always stay on top of when slow seasons are approaching, when you're overbooked, and a number of other key insights that can help you know exactly how successful your business is.
Get paid online
Getting paid online consistently proves to be a huge help to businesses of all sizes because, at the end of the day, cash flow matters. No more waiting for a check in the mail or need to deposit cash in the bank—we can handle it all for you, and make paying you more convenient for your customers. Your customers will be able to view your invoices, and enter their credit card to pay you. Best of all, their payments will be automatically deposited into your bank account a couple days later.
Early users are loving WorkWeek.
We think you will, too. We'd love to help your service business reach new heights in 2017. To learn more, click here to visit WorkWeek.
