ATLANTA, GA, April 16, 2024 – FieldEdge by Xplor, a powerful all-in-one software platform for home contracting businesses, has today announced it has teamed up with leading software consultants for the trades, Powerhouse Consulting Group. The new initiative is designed to help customers maximize the value of their software investment and grow their business through individualized support, custom training, and turn-key solutions.

In today’s high inflation environment, small businesses are operating in a challenging market, making it increasingly important to secure a return on investment for business software. Although 43% of organizations plan to spend more on software in 20241, 23% of small business owners reported that inflation was their single most important business problem in February, up three percentage points from the previous month2. This emphasizes how critical it is for small businesses to increase their ROI for operations solutions.

Powerhouse Consulting Group specializes in streamlining HVAC, plumbing, electrical, locksmith, and appliance repair businesses by helping their owners to drive operational efficiencies. Its expert industry veteran consultants provide tailored support to trade businesses, identifying areas of improvement and training teams to optimize their business workflows.

Terence Cummings, General Manager, Field Services at Xplor Technologies confirms, “FieldEdge has everything a field services business needs to operate efficiently and grow successfully, but some businesses haven’t realized its full potential yet. For companies that lack the time or know-how, Powerhouse Consulting Group can help – by upskilling teams and enabling them to grow their business in the way they have always wanted to.”

Under the arrangement, HVAC, plumbing, electrical and appliance repair contractors can undergo an in-depth company audit, and access one-on-one training in workflow development, process documentation, customized price books, accounting planning, analytics support, and more.

Jenny Benbrook, Co-founder and CEO, Powerhouse Consulting Group adds, “FieldEdge is intuitive and easy to use, but many busy trade businesses aren’t using all its robust features. Whether large or small, we help ambitious HVAC companies level up by focusing on contractor processes and how these work with FieldEdge. With our expertise and tailored support, these companies can grow at scale.”
