Then, we do the heavy lifting and set up the system, customising it to suit you and your business.

The great news? You don’t have to be a tech whiz, at Autom8 Me we don’t just set up your system and then leave you to it. We train you and your team to use the app, in real life situations.

TradiePad is a technology training organisation built by tradies, for tradies. We help business owners understand how the right mobile devices and apps can transform their operations and deliver life-changing business efficiency and personal freedom.

We work with multiple leading software solutions and focus on making sure our clients have the right “tool for the job”.  Anyone that’s started to explore the range of options knows that it can be a real minefield out there. We solve this by working with you one on one to assess your business needs, advise you on the best devices, apps and accounting software to suit your operations, then set everything up and train you and your staff on how to use these powerful new tools of the trade.

Most importantly, TradiePad is fiercely independent of all of the software partners we work with, ensuring we only provide genuine, unbiased, expert advice. We take the pain and fear out of making the move to technology.

We provide full support and ongoing education for our clients so you’ll always have someone to call when you’re ready to throw your phone out the window! We will keep you up to date with the constantly changing world of technology. Think of us as your outsourced IT department or “nerds on call”.

About Us:

TradiePad was started by two plumbers who were working long hours, drowning in admin and paperwork and weren’t even sure whether they were making money on their jobs or not! They started looking for a way to make life better, simplify and streamline the way they worked, and get more stuff done during the day, rather than after hours when they just wanted to spend time with the family.

The idea was “There has to be a better way”, and when the first iPad was released in 2010, they saw an opportunity to shake up the industry and the way that all tradies work.

TradiePad is now Australia’s leading technology training organisation for the construction industry, recognised and supported by Apple, Xero, Quickbooks Online, Telstra and a swag of major software companies. We work closely with ServiceM8, Tradify, WorkflowMax, Ascora, AroFlo, simPRO, BuilderTrend, BuildXact and many others. We’ve now proudly helped thousands of tradies worldwide embrace technology and “the cloud” to run their operations.

For decades trades businesses have lost hundreds of hours a month managing jobs the hard way. Pen and paper job sheets, spreadsheets, emails and other offline tools and so on, creating nothing but headaches. They’re not only a huge cost to your business, but take time away from you doing the things you love with the people that matter.

That’s why we built Fergus, Job Software for tradies, to take that stress away. Fergus makes it easy to manage all your jobs from quoting through to collecting payment. 

Fergus is the brainchild of Dan Pollard, a Plumber by Trade. He dreamed it up while knee-deep in the trenches of running his own trades business. After going bust once and burning out once, Dan quickly realised that a trades business needs proper systems in place to keep it running – without running its owner into the ground. From there, Dan teamed up with Jordan, an Engineer and Fergus was born. With Fergus on the job, Dan was able to grow his business from 4 employees to 24 in less than 4 years.

With Fergus, all costs are associated with a job, so nothing slips through the cracks. Fergus integrates seamlessly with popular accounting tools like Xero and MYOB, as well as some of your favourite trades suppliers like Middy’s Electrical and Reece Plumbing.

We know that managing staff is challenging, but with the Fergus calendar there’s no more calling around, texting, or waiting for staff to get back into the office. Fergus uses simple drag and drop functionality to schedule staff to jobs and automatically lets them know where and when the next job is via the Mobile App.

On-site you can access all job details, add time entries, upload files and photos, complete necessary forms and checklists and add any labour and materials costs directly to the job. Fergus keeps your team connected and on the tools, leaving you to focus on the more important matters at hand.

Our team at Fergus are committed to making tradies’ lives better. Alongside free onboarding and training, our Fergus Tradehub boasts a range of free resources including product videos, webinar recordings and blogs with tips for trades business owners.

But don’t take our word for it. This year, Fergus has been awarded the “Most Recommended” and “Front Runners” badge in our category by Software Advice, as well as ‘Category Leaders’ by GetApp, platforms used to rank job management software based on customer reviews. @fergusapp (http://facebook.com/fergusapp

DiviPay’s an Australian company, used by 1000’s of businesses like you, every single day.

It’s a virtual company card loved by tradies who want to have security and transparency on all ‘Tap n Go’ payments.

You can upload pictures of receipts so you can claim GST and lodge with your BAS each quarter.

We have four main ways to reduce your administration time.

1. Instant expense cards – No filling out forms and waiting with a bank to access business cards

You can access company cards instantly, issue cards to sub-contractors and limit their spend.

2. Expense reporting – no more receipt chasing

As soon as you pay for something whether it be petrol, coffee or supplies at Bunnings – you just take a photo of the receipt and your expense report is pretty much done.

But the next generation is here – increasingly, you can do away with the photo of the receipt all together. At places like Mitre 10 and Chemist Warehouse – you can just pay and a digital receipt is automatically attached to your expense report.

3. Accounting software integrations.

Once your have complete your expense report – nothing further is needed – the receipts and transaction information will be automatically allocated to the business’s expense report and populated into Xero.

4. Bills

Just drag and drop your bills – we extract all the information and you click pay. It really is that simple.

We also create a bill in Xero and mirror the Bill Status in Xero at the same time, meaning our DiviPay x Xero customers don’t need to double handle this transaction. DiviPay automatically handles the entire experience.
