SME resellers sought by Software Associates

Local software and hardware solutions developer Software Associates has already signed up four resellers in its quest to establish a national network for JobPro, its job scheduling, tracking and invoicing tool.

JobPro project manager Chris Main says he is looking for a maximum of 30 resellers with experience in the small to medium business market and knowledge of packages such as MYOB.

“We did some market research and there are 137,000 businesses with one to 19 employees in New Zealand. And 42 percent of them are in the industry sector, so there is a reasonable target market for JobPro.”

JobPro is designed for small to medium businesses in the service industry to help company owners keep track of job progress and billable hours more effectively.

Main says resellers who sign up will make a significant margin from software sales.

“We’re also offering full support, training and implementation fees. Resellers will also have the chance to go to JobPro Systems training programmes.”

He adds that Software Associates won’t be charging any sign-up or annual fees.

As well, Main says resellers will have to work hard for commission.

“It takes three to four days to properly implement JobPro. But the benefit is that the package is fully scalable to any business and can be grown to include more features.”

The software can be installed on anything from a PDA to a desktop computer, meaning that business owners have access to the information wherever they are.

“If you have a worker in Invercargill who has to come up to Auckland for the day, then he can access the same information from the Invercargill office and not have to change his working pattern,” says Main.

Another benefit is that if the job is not completed on the same day, then the order rolls over to the next day.

“This is a great time saver as the information doesn’t need to be re-entered in the system,” says Main.

The four resellers who have signed up are from places such as Rotorua, Tauranga and Whangarei.

“We’re concentrating on the northern half of the North Island as we want to establish that area first and settle things down before targeting Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin in a few months time."
