Business activities app gives voice to self-employed


A Midlands-based software developer has introduced a new voice-to-text function that allows users of its business management app, jobmate, to action their daily business activities without the need to manually enter text.

Responding to calls from small business owners, who currently rely on the jobmate app to manage their daily admin and book-keeping tasks, jobmate Ltd developed the new function to make it possible for hands-on business managers to go hands-free.

“We are always listening to our customers and now our app is listening to them too!” Says jobmate founder and CEO Chris Dalton. “It became clear that for jobmate users who perform a number of manual tasks, they would greatly benefit from a voice-to-text function. Now they can do a quick quote, make out an invoice or simply enter a diary note without needing to stop and type everything in.”

This, says Dalton, means that jobmate users everywhere can continue to capture their costs and activities while literally ‘on the go’.

Which is certainly true for Stuart Larmer, whose specialist cleaning firm Supreme Clean is supported by the pay-as-you go app. “The new hands-free function is a real bonus. I already use jobmate for my ‘office work’ such as diary planning, quotes, stock control and a number of other things but now, being able to do it all just by talking into the phone, makes life even easier – especially when I’m in the middle of a busy job.”

Recently named, The Best Software Company in Wolverhampton by independent business analyst, jobmate is designed to help small business owners and the self-employed easily manage their daily business tasks without the usual paperwork, which say jobmate, can rob them of much-needed free time after a hard day’s work.

The company adds that for anyone wanting to take advantage of their ‘lifestyle-changing app’ a free 30-day trial is currently on offer at
