Mastering chaos is a critical success factor of entrepreneurs. In construction, chaos comes along in form of “waste": i.e. service provision without order, lack of motivation, walking/transport, rework, waiting, and so on.
Waste consumes up to two-thirds of the time spent on the construction site. And 99% of the construction industry consists of small businesses, organized in a highly decentralized manner, so that major developments or investments are simply not possible — a vicious circle.The root cause of chaos lies in the field of organization and communication, namely: media discontinuity, time-offset and time-wasting. This is where zip.app comes into play.
I need your help!
OK. What's the problem?
I won a new important project containing parts of your professional discipline. Are you available within next month?
And no worries! I have time left. Just send me all tasks and deadlines.
As communication is at the very heart of a successful business, our messenger function is of particular importance. In order to support and foster communication among all parties involved, we equipped zip.app with an automated translation service in order to get a better understanding of each other.
Beside this, our solution contains all further features of a modern messenger, like group chats, sending text or audio/video messages in a secure environment, sharing any kind of document, cross-device synchronisation and cloud backups.
We consider task status the single most important piece of information a business owner can ever call his own, because it allows him to ask meaningful questions, to base reasonable estimations upon, to interlink neighboring services, and to create solid invoices that ultimately generate revenue and money.
Tasks can be described in multiple ways. As we focus on the absolute basics, we consider textual description, technical quantity and monetary value the most important task attributes. A stepper guides you through the process of create such tasks.
Once your tasks are evaluated, it is easy to convert them into invoices: simply choose which tasks to account, make sure your client is already selected, and add the payment method of your choice.
Invoices are sent in the name of the sender; therefore, you can customize the invoice design. If you want, you can order digitally that an invoice is sent directly by post — it only costs you about the price of a stamp. Once your invoice is published, it is auditably stored in the project file and can be tranferred to your accounting software using standard interfaces like DATEV.
Within zip.app you can create documents within seconds. Starting with a quote for your client, it turns automatically into an order confirmation and finally into an invoice at the end of your project.
All within one single application.
zip.app is the office in your pocket. Even more, an interactive assistant who provides information at any time. Just go ahead and ask for a compilation of figures across all projects — the assistent is going to get them for you.
