Simple Invoice Template

Invoicing With an App

Simple Invoice Template

A Simple Invoice Template is a template where you enter the information that’s pertinent. This is the information that shows up on the invoice.  A simple to use invoice template is a template that is self explanatory, one that’s easy to follow.

What you’ll need is what has been created here.  The Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App is designed to be simple.  The template allows you to create your very own simple invoices.

Let’s look at what’s involved within a computer program. What the form does is to put things into a logical format and with a flow that makes sense.

Normally what you’ll see, are these empty boxes. They’re there for you to enter the information that’s needed to make sense of the work or service that you’re doing.

What the Best Templates Provide

What you’ll want to see in this form is what will work best for the type of business you are actually in. This is why you should look a little deeper into whatever app you decide to purchase. And find the one which was designed in a way that makes sense for your type of business.

Its not a one size fits all situation. Some of the apps out there are trying to be a one size fits all’, but that’s not necessarily what you want to have.

The Profit Pal App for Specific Users

Our app was designed with specific users in mind. So those boxes that I described earlier are related to what you’ll need if you’re in a service business. They are there because they are useful to people in the Trades’. People who work as Plumbers, Electricians and Landscapers, and many more trades. You see we are not trying to be for everyone!

It has to be among the easiest templates to use. All you do is tap the create company template icon in the menu to start. There you’ll enter the company name, address, phone number, etcetera, and the app will save that information, and put it on all your invoices.

So whenever you enter the data for a new job and save the job, that data will be saved into a job file. And it will be used to fill in the invoices you create.

Those boxes that I mentioned earlier, have titles like Hourly Rate, Number of Hours, once entered the app will calculate those.

In this app there are boxes for travel expenses should you decide to use them. If you don’t charge for travel, then just enter a “0” into those boxes. They were put there so that you don’t lose any money on your travel to the new jobs.

The Materials used are Important

One area that is very important to Tradesmen out there is keeping track of the materials that go into a job. We know this to be true because we had a Licensed Plumbing company approach us and ask for this feature to be included in the app.

Because the materials used on a job are very important to you we added the feature. With it, you’ll create a list of all of the parts you carry on your work truck. Now when you add those items to the job file the app saves them and automatically adds them to the invoice of that job.

Since a Plumbing contractor told us that he needed this feature because he didn’t know where all of his parts were going.

So things like that have been thought of and put into our app.

Easy to Use App

It’s just that simple! A simple invoice template can make your working life much easier.

We didn’t take things for granted. So you can rest assured that we have already given thought into what you’ll need to conduct business.  And we didn’t put in unnecessary things that you don’t need.  I am sure you can appreciate that! So why not take the app for a test drive today!

Just follow the link below for whichever device you happen to own!

Want to Control your Inventory

service_van truck_inventory_2_jpg

Want to Control Your Inventory

Inventory is such an important issue with many small companies. If you want to control your inventory, it can actually be easy. That is if you have an app like the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App on your Smartphone or Tablet.

That’s because the Profit Pal App now has the new inventory feature. With this feature, you create your own inventory list, based on the parts you’re carrying on your truck. It’s very easy to use, you just enter the names of your items and the starting counts for each of the items. You also can enter the price you charge the customer for each item.

Once you’ve done that, the app will keep track of them. Whenever you add a part to a job and put it in the job file, the app will automatically subtract those items from the inventory count for each of the items. This feature is the answer for many of you out there who have been struggling to keep up with your parts.

Why controlling your Inventory is so important!

Controlling your inventory is big when considering the cost of doing business, and it’s important to know where your parts are going. The beauty of this feature in the app is that you now know in real time exactly what your part counts are. And when it’s time to replenish them and once you’ve purchased the new ones you simply hit the + button and add the new amount you just added and the app updated the part count for that particular part.  And it’s just as easy to add new parts whenever you load something new into your truck.

The problem of tracking parts has long been an annoyance to many trades’ people, for Plumbers, Electricians, Contractors, and many more tradespeople out there.

This’s why we added this feature to the app. We heard your complaints and responded with this great feature, so don’t delay. If you only use this part of the app you’ll definitely be getting your money’s worth. So enjoy using the Inventory Control Feature. And the rest of the app is on us.

The Smartphone is Your New Office

16472077-Female-electrician-Stock-Photo-electrician-construction-woman hands-man-smart-phone-carpenter-holding-workbench-58037234

The smartphone is Your New Office App

 

Smartphone, so what’s a Smartphone Anyway? And how can it be your new office?

I’ll explain that here! Let’s say for practical purposes that your job takes you on the road or out in the field, as it’s called by Mobile workers.

The Smartphone Welcome to Your New Office!

Your Office in the Field

As you go out to do jobs and find yourself away from the normal office environment. What I mean to say by that is that you’ll generally not have available to you all of the tools you’d normally find in a business office.

Finding yourself working in the field you may feel at a slight disadvantage, not having the office tools you’re accustomed to at your disposal. Things like a copier, a Scanner, or a printer. These are just a few of the office tools you may not have access to when working in the field.

However; today that doesn’t need to be the case, since there are actually quite a few Mobile Office replacements for the traditional office tools. For example, there are Mobile Printers. These printers have their own rechargeable battery so you don’t even need to be where there’s power. And many have a cord that you just plug into the vehicle cigarette lighter port.

So this takes care of the problem of printing in the field. Now you may be thinking, that’s fine but I don’t have a P.C. in my vehicle to use to view the invoice before I print it!

The Smartphone is your P.C.

But you’d be wrong because you actually do! And it’s on your Smartphone. You see your Smartphone is a computer, if you’ve ever looked inside one you would see that it’s just a miniature version of your P.C.

That Smartphone you’re carrying can do just about everything that you would previously do on your P.C. You know how you will send emails to your clients from your P.C. Well, you can do the same thing with your Smartphone.

Having said that, the truth is all you need to accomplish this are programs, the same way your P.C. came loaded with programs to do your Word Processing, and your Excel spreadsheets.

Now when it comes to your Smartphone, they just call them something a little different, they are called Apps, which is just a short way of saying applications.

When you have the correct App downloaded to your Smartphone, you can do all of the same things you’re used to doing at the office, right there where you are.

You no longer need to put things off until you reach your office. Don’t shy away from trying your new office tools out there. They were actually made to make your life easier and better.

Of course, I would like to recommend our app! The Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App whyy not try it today, I am sure it will fit the bill.
