Transform your Ideas into Reality with QicWorks

We love receiving feedback about how we can provide an easy-to-use job management platform with the flexibility you need to manage your engineering, construction, fabrication or site installation business.

 

You may even have heard the team talk about our Product Wish List.

 

For those of you who are unaware, our Product Wish Board is our running list of customer ideas and improvements that the QicWorks development team use to identify, manage and prioritise our product roadmap for new releases and updates.

 

Your input counts!

The QicWorks team is driven by delivering exciting innovation that improves our user’s experiences and increases productivity for small businesses owners, their financial advisors and key stakeholders. We know your time is precious and we love being able to implement tech solutions to help to alleviate the stress of running a business.

 

So how exactly does the team prioritise the Product Wish List. First off, we hold a number of brainstorming sessions to ascertain the following criteria:

  

  1.   Does the idea help the majority of our community
  2. Does it drive productivity and promote scale of business
  3. Is there a statutory requirement or deadline for this feature
  4. Can the code be implemented without causing detriment to the rest of the program
  5. Does it improve and strengthen the QicWorks application and our delivery, ensuring future prosperity for all

 

A lot of our releases have come about due to an identified gap in market (like the ability to create customised document prefixes.) While others are what we call quick wins (such as removing touchpoints in our processes or creating new reports to display existing data.)

 

While we love receiving your feedback, we are mindful that some changes cannot be made due to coding restrictions or legislative requirements. One such example of this a suggestion to remove the start time field on timesheets to reduce the about of data entry required. This field is not only required in accordance to Fairwork Commission Australia rulings and subsequent awards, but also poses a problem within QicWorks code structure. When no start time has been entered, the system assumes the worker was actually working on two (2) jobs at the same time and his/her shift commenced at midnight.

 

Have your say!

What you might not know is contained within our Help Centre is a ticketing system whereby you can submit and vote on upcoming features.

 Sometimes it may not feel like your suggestion is getting the attention it deserves, and this is simply not true. A delay in development might be caused by competing priorities, statutory deadlines, complex product testing or our development team being assigned to what we call ‘behind the scenes’ coding. (Behind the scenes coding examples include such things as server updates, better storage and security management, major coding language changes or improvements to loading speeds, all of which are essential functions to ensure longevity of the program for everyone.)

 

Digital innovation is constantly changing, and we acknowledge that as business needs change, so to must our software.

 

We are extremely grateful for your feedback, insights and ideas!


So please keep them coming, as they drive us to continually improve QicWorks functionality and user experience for everyone.
