Dog Sledding in the Yukon

Brad Halcrow   16 May, 2017

When Paul Harty and wife Jenni started out in electrical business in 1987, during the day Paul would be on the tools while Jenni worked at the supermarket. At night, they’d get together to do the invoicing. Over time, the couple's hard work has paid off.

Time to go after the big projects

In the past Dan Ogden, owner of DB Electrical Services, struggled to effectively manage high volumes of orders from suppliers. This then affected his ability to effectively manage projects by making it difficult for him to organise and assign resources to them.

Cruise ship bliss thanks to simPRO

The last time we spoke to John Libroaperto he was planning a holiday. It seems to be a popular goal. In fact, the majority of Journey-goers seem to have travel set in their sights once they’ve got the business running as it should.

Meet Michelle. She and her husband have had multiple businesses over the years. Their two current businesses are housed under the one roof. One of which, ABC Embroidery, is running on simPRO. It’s a small operation that may otherwise be deemed too small for a beast like simPRO Enterprise but Michelle has found the software to be a perfect fit for her workflow.

Life is very good for Lindsay & Peter Coulter

Brad Halcrow   22 June, 2016

Lindsay Coulter began his journey as an electrician. After years in the trade, Lindsay decided he was ready for his next challenge and, in 1983, launched his own security business in Timaru, New Zealand: Allied Alarms.

The company, which specialises in a wide range of security-related services, is now one of the longest running security firms in the country.

Now, directors Lindsay and his brother Peter lead a team of 16.

Adam continues his path to fitness

Remember our friend Adam Bell?

Before simPRO he was getting into the office at 5:30am to dish out job cards to his field staff. Next thing we know, once simPRO is up and running, he’s rolling in at 7:30 on his pushbike. The pushbike led to a run, a swim, then next thing we know he’s a triathlete!

Adam is getting back on the tools, and you'd never guess why

Too much work is always a nice problem to have but having no-one to do the work isn't exactly what you want at a time when you could be making hay while the sun is shining.

Manage the system not the people

Brad Halcrow   10 December, 2014

This Journey is somewhat special for us here at simPRO. Andrew and Prue of Mr A Electrics joined us wayyy back in 2002. In fact, they were the fourth company to begin using Enterprise (back before it was even known by that name). So while we were busy building software to systemise business processes, they were busy systemising.

Away from the office and into triathlons

Brad Halcrow   9 November, 2014

Remember Adam Bell?

The first milestone in Adam's journey was being able to leave the office for a fishing trip and know that everything was taken care of back in the office. If something had been missed, he knew he could track what happened.

Adam Bell. Life away from the office

Brad Halcrow   14 August, 2014

Meet Adam Bell. Adam bought his plumbing business from his father. He’s seen both the benefit of hard work and the drawback of the old way of doing things.
