Trade’s Best Friend: Discovering Fergus

Trade’s Best Friend: Discovering Fergus

This is the tale of a veteran tradie named Dan Pollard, his loyal dog Fergus, and how they inspired a tool that transformed our way of managing our trade businesses.


The Birth of an Idea

Dan Pollard was no stranger to the challenges of running a trade business. After battling burnout and the constant stress of juggling multiple tasks, he knew there had to be a better way. So, he embarked on a mission to create a tool that could handle the complexities of a trade business with ease.


A Companion Named Fergus

Throughout his journey as a tradie and entrepreneur, Dan had a faithful companion – his dog Fergus. Dependable, smart, friendly, and always by his side, Fergus was more than just a pet; he was a constant source of support and companionship.

Inspired by the qualities of his four-legged friend, Dan named his software ‘Fergus’. He envisioned it as a reliable partner for tradies and their wives, helping them manage their businesses without the stress.


More Than Just a Tool

Fergus, the software, is designed to handle everything from quoting, scheduling, invoicing, job & cost tracking, reporting, health & safety, and more1. It’s like having an extra pair of hands that never tires and is always ready to help.

But what makes Fergus stand out is its origin. Born out of the real-life experiences of a tradie, it understands the unique challenges we face and offers solutions tailored to our needs.


Embracing Change

Incorporating Fergus into your daily routine will be a transformative experience. It helps streamline operations, reduce stress, and reclaim time for yourself and your family.

But what we hope you will love most about Fergus is that it feels like a friend – a dependable companion that’s with you every step of the way, just like Fergus the dog was for Dan.


Our Journey Continues

We’re excited to continue our journey with Fergus by our side, and we can’t wait to see where it takes us next.

Remember, at TradieWives, we’re not just about sharing tips and tools; we’re about sharing stories that inspire us and make our lives a little bit easier. And Fergus, with its unique blend of functionality and heart, has certainly earned a spot in our narrative.
