Labor accounting is so important to your business profits, it can’t be understated. That’s because if you think about it, why are you out there working in the first place. The good news is there is something that can help and it’s in the way of an app. When it’s time to account for the labor the Profit Pal App can help.
There comes a time for every business when there is a need to account for the labor performed on jobs. Invoicing apps are great but not all are created like the Profit Pal App. This app has the ability to track the hours performed on each job. Since this is one of the areas featured in the app.
The app actually calculates your labor hours times your hourly rate. This information along with much more is used to calculate your job totals. Apps are great for this purpose since they can save the information about the job and even send reports to you.
This ability is a great time saver when it comes time to account for the labor hours performed on any task. Whatever business you are engaged in this app can track that information for you.
This kind of data is essential to businesses since it allows you to see how well you are being compensated for your work. Some jobs that you do may require a higher or a lower rate of pay depending on the type of work involved.
Some of the invoicing apps out there don’t do this calculation for you, but Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App does!
Free Invoicing Apps Can There Really Be Something for Nothing?
So what are these free apps all about? Well, there are no free apps, in reality, they will get paid somehow!
It seems that in this day and age everyone wants to get something for nothing. Thus that’s why the pervasive amount of free stuff out there.
Can anything really be free? How would the code writers of those apps get paid?
This article is about all of the free apps out there.
Yes, I’ll admit it is tempting even for me to download some of the free apps out there. That is until I think about it. Common sense will tell you these apps have to get paid for somehow.
I can remember what my dad once told me when I was a little guy, he said, ”Son, you get what you pay for.” How true that is.
So I quickly came to my senses and realized that there has to be a gimmick since no one is going to do all of that work of creating those apps to give them away for free.
How Do They Get Paid?
So let’s take a look at just one of the ways they get paid. And if you’re still interested in downloading them, then that’s OK, because at least you’ll know what you’re getting into.
It’s important for you to know that one of the ways they pay for the apps, is to place banner ads in them.
These are the ads that you see on the screen they are usually at the bottom of the screen so as to not to be too intrusive. Sometimes they may be at the top of the screen as well.
Remember, I don’t know about you, but I do know that popup adds can really annoy me. Since I am always being careful not to hit that banner since it will take me somewhere else.
And cause me to waist a lot of my time. And since it’s not so easy to get back to what I was doing.
And in business, as they say,” time is money” and I can’t afford to be wasting mine.
Now you should have a better understanding of the subject and you can make an informed decision. So if it’s worth it for you to download free apps, at least you know what you are up against.
I don’t know about you’ but for me, I would want a professional business app, one like the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App. I would rather pay a little and have an app that’s not trying to get me to click on banner ads.
Wouldn’t you rather have a one-time price and be done with it! And you would be able to use it without those pesky ads in it that can be so annoying.
This is why we put in the pricing structure that we did. It’s not a lot of money just enough to make it profitable enough to support the app. That’s why priced our app the way we did.
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.
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!
