How WorkBuddy powered First Choice Fencing to enhance visibility across all business units
The Story of First Choice Fencing
First Choice Fencing Pty Ltd was established in 2003 to provide reliable and competitively priced options for fabrication and fencing related products in the residential, commercial, civil, and maintenance sectors. Their scope of works includes construction, renovation, consulting, architecture, and electrical services. Since its inception as a fencing company, the business has grown substantially to an organisation with subsidiary companies in metal works and fabrication trades.

Separate companies, united by one system

- Manage multiple business entities without the need for separate logins.
- Share job information between business entities.
- Filter information related to an individual company.
- Run reports on an individual business entity or the group of businesses as a whole.

WorkBuddy made it easy for First Choice fencing to grant or restrict user access. We set up user permission groups based on employee roles or responsibilities to limit the visibility of those users to specific areas and fields in WorkBuddy.
It’s now easy for First Choice Fencing to create, complete and track work orders. The WorkBuddy operations board provides a full view of employee workload where they can drag and drop jobs into their schedules, and assign users to a job. They can also send alerts to employees by email or mobile notification when a work order is triggered that belongs to them.
A cloud-based time-tracking system to quickly enter time on any job
