As the home of Australia’s largest online tradie marketplace, hipages, and job management software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, Tradiecore, hipages Group is deepening its offerings for tradies by introducing a one-stop platform combining both functionalities through a single app. Built as a SaaS solution, the new platform will encompass everything that a tradesperson needs to run their business efficiently, save time, while providing opportunities to increase revenue and retain customers. It will include functionalities such as customer leads management, materials sourcing, scheduling, payments, and self-service options such as calls, texts and emails.
“As a business, one of our primary goals is to help more tradespeople win the right work and grow their business,” said Jeremy Burton, Chief Technology Officer at hipages Group. “Our partnership with Thoughtworks delivers a one-stop, single source of truth for tradespeople. It equips them to manage and run their business and gives them the tools to deliver the best customer experiences.”
As part of a long term partnership arrangement, one of the other initiatives that hipages Group and Thoughtworks worked together is to deliver a new and improved payments system, addressing challenges tradespeople faced collecting payments from customers and managing cash flow. Customer research conducted by hipages Group revealed many still rely on direct bank transfers which are often difficult to track or follow. As a result of this, the partnership extended to focus on a new solution to support the long-term growth and success of tradies.
“The next phase of our partnership with hipages Group cements our collective purpose of using technology to transform the way our customers do business,” said Karin Verloop, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand at Thoughtworks. “The one-stop platform is an exciting milestone for hipages Group and one we believe truly highlights the company’s vision to become a true partner for tradespeople.”
In the future, the one-stop platform will introduce other solutions such as other finance solutions, insurance, education, advice and more.
