The goal of FieldFlō is to ease the pains for as many abatement and demo companies as possible. We want to help companies focus on what’s most important and spend less time worrying about the tedious and redundant tasks that cause so many issues and heartache in our industry. For example, issues surrounding time tracking, crew tracking, safety paperwork completion and tracking, permitting, certification tracking, skill tracking, internal warehouse ordering, inventory, closeout reporting and lastly, the overall tracking of all aspect of your projects. If any of these steps or processes go overlooked during a project's life cycle, it can lead to wasted time, tremendous additional labor costs, and sometimes even regulatory fines and/or citations. We often look back and think how much more productivity the companies we've worked for would have experienced, and the money the company could have saved, had we been running off of a solution like FieldFlō. "Was it all in vain?" No! Now the question changes to, "how many people will this software help moving forward?" We hope to contribute this to the abatement and demo world and give you something that's easy and won't break the bank.
That's the second "Why" to creating FieldFlō ourselves...COST! Prior to creating FieldFlo we thought it would just be easier to go to a SaaS company and have them whip it up for us. We were quoted upwards of $100K just to start and $15K each year after and it wasn't even going to truly be our abatement processes. Essentially they were just going to digitize our forms and allow you to send them. That's when we decided to reach out to some old friends and take on the project ourselves and make something that would be affordable and easy to use for everyone!
Us abatement/demo people are a very special breed and change is not easy for anyone, but especially for us in this industry. We know that going in and that's why our focus from the beginning of development was to create something that anyone could learn to use no matter their age, language, education or technical acumen. Like we said, we are a special breed with so many hats that we have to wear on a daily basis. We don't just bid jobs and walk away. We source materials, interface with regulatory agencies, and service our clients. We manage our employees, marketing efforts, staff, production, and inventories. We deal with more variables than most. However, if all of these variables could work together in one fine-tuned system it really could be quite easy to manage. We know this because we've lived this. All the growing pains pushed us to find solutions which culminated into one system - and the only system for asbestos abatement and demolition contractors. FieldFlō is born!
Thank you for taking a look around the site and we hope that we can work together to continue to relieve the inefficiencies of our industry and get back to having fun performing exciting projects.
