Got back one day per week in admin time – Our business was purely paper based, we wanted a way to not only put our business online but to simplify our daily operations. Iseka meet our challenge by creating us an online booking system that allowed us to significantly reduce our administration time. We now spend a lot more time on building our business and a lot less on paper work.
For years we managed our business with a book which meant we had to enter information many times before we got paid. i-Bin has simplified our entire business. We enter the order once, delivery the bin, pick up the bin. change the status and its all done. It has reduced our office work by 75% as we don’t have to recreate everything. Whats more it means we can hire additional drivers given they just have to access the system to manage jobs.
