Blue collar technology. What do you think of when you hear the phrase “blue collar”? Do you picture a tradesman with dirty, rough fingers, wrench in hand? Or perhaps you picture a man with a lunch pale, construction boots and hard hat. Sweat trickling down the man’s grimy face, ready to tackle the next project. Perhaps, he has a clipboard stacked with papers ready for a client to sign. You might think of him calling you to confirm “the job” on a muffled cell phone line.

Whatever kind of man (or woman) you picture when thinking “blue collar,” it undoubtedly does not include words such as technology or software in the picture.

Trade Jobs and the Future

Blue collar software is making a positive impact on the blue collar industry in 2020. And instead of taking jobs from the trade, it’s increasing the value of the worker and their most treasured component … time.

Trade jobs are in high demand. Construction, along with healthcare and personal care, will account for one-third of all new jobs in 2022. With already 80% of these jobs vacant, the field is in desperate need for both workers and software that will help in getting the job done. And getting it done right, fast, and 100% accuracy.

Blue collar software is just the instrument that the tradesman’s toolbox is missing.

What is Blue Collar Software and how can it help?

Blue collar software is a cloud-based solution made specially for the service industry. Meant to better manage daily needs more effectively, it’s basically a mobile administrative assistant. And YouTube, book keeper, scheduler and file system in one.

With this innovative technology, a tradesman can view new jobs, set and create appointments based on location and navigate best routes between. In addition, tradesman can look up best practices for fixes and also bill customers from the comfort of his truck.

Only 30% of a workman’s day is spent doing wrench time. The remainder is completing paperwork, data entry, etc. So why not let technology save him time and money to get the job done.

On the road, on the site, from one job to the next, blue collar software will be just as essential fro the hard hat for the 2020 tradesman.
