CEDIA Expo Preview: simPRO to Dispel Myths Surrounding Cloud-Based Software

Software provider simPRO to spell out realities of using cloud-based software in Tech Talk panel discussion at CEDIA Expo.

Software company simPRO is aiming to dispel all the myths surrounding cloud-based software. Indeed, the Australia-based company, which has already had great success among electricians, plumbers, HVAC, solar and security contractors, will be at CEDIA Expo 2019 in Denver ready to answer questions from integrators.

Glenn Nott, president of simPRO U.S., along with integrator Tim Orr of Blue Wave Communications in Miramar, Florida, will be on hand Saturday, September 14 from 9:30 a.m. top 10:00 a.m. at the Smart Stage at CEDIA Expo to discuss how software can improve efficiency.

“We are going to be addressing some of the common concerns around integrating cloud-based software,” says Nott.

“Dealers need to understand the positive impact that software… particularly field service management software like simPRO’s… can have on running their business. We are going to be able to demonstrate how simPRO solutions can help them improve their business operations with our features for workflow automation, reports that increase visibility into their business, and finally connecting the office with the field using our new simPRO mobile app.”

simPRO’s cloud-based, software as a service (SaaS) was first developed 17 years ago by Steve Bradshaw, who at the time was an electrician himself struggling to find efficiencies in his own business.

Seventeen years later, simPRO is a global company with more than 4,000 customers worldwide with over 100,000 users.

The company has offices in Australia, New Zealand and the UK, and opened its U.S. office in Broomfield, Colo., in between Boulder and Denver, about 2 years ago.

Among the features available in the software are the ability to keep office and field workforces connected, assistance in winning more jobs with quick quoting and estimating, and the ability to schedule and dispatch jobs efficiently.

In all, more than 60 different reports are available. The software integrates with QuickBooks or Xero accounting packages. As simPRO is cloud-based, dealers can access their data from anywhere, any time.
