Benefits of Fergus’s Email Ingestion Feature

Staying organised as a trades business owner can be difficult, especially when managing a million things on a day-to-day.

At Fergus, we’re big believers in helping tradies get their work done the way that works best for them. And let’s face it, no one loves admin!

Our latest feature, Email Ingestion, takes one more step towards reducing the time you spend on paperwork by automatically importing your supplier invoices for you. In fact, we’re one of the only job management platforms that do this by working closely with key trade suppliers.

 

So, what does this mean for you?

Simply put, invoices you receive from some of your favourite plumbing, electrical and trades suppliers will automatically appear in your Fergus account.

We’re officially getting rid of your manual invoice uploads from dozens of popular trades suppliers once and for all.

With this, you’ll be able to track real-time job profitability and speed up the time to invoice – without having to wait for invoices to come through to your email account, then download, upload, and reconcile. Simply put, this is a crucial tool for helping you get paid faster.

Pretty cool, right? (If only we could insert a round of applause sound into blog posts.)

 

Here’s how it works:

Getting started is really easy. Simply head to the Fergus Integration Centre, where you’ll see our list of Standard Integrations using Email Ingestion technology.

From there, Fergus creates a unique email address for each supplier to send your invoices to. You can send this email address off to the supplier from inside the App.

Once processed by the supplier, your invoices will automatically appear under [Supplier Docs] in Fergus, where they can be reconciled in two clicks. If a job reference number is visible, it’ll be even faster!

 

See 120+ more integrations

 

Ready, Set, Automate!

By leveraging our Email Ingestion integrations, you’ll eliminate another friction point in your workflow and gain more time to focus on exciting ways to grow your trades business effectively, and profitably.

You won’t have to remember to upload this or that over.

Email Ingestion 👏 will 👏 do 👏 it 👏 for 👏 you.
