Pocket PA is the best app for a handyman. Everyone needs the services of a handyman for home repairs at some point or another, but if it’s actually you who is delivering the handyman services, it’s likely that you could also do with an ‘extra pair of hands’ to help you keep on top of your own business admin.
If you’re a mobile handyman and working by yourself, then having a system to manage your diary is crucial to maximise your efficiency and timekeeping. Pocket PA is the perfect one stop solution to keep you at the top of your game and put you ahead of your competition.
It will enable you to manage all your business bookings and bookkeeping in one place, so you don’t have to juggle multiple apps that probably don’t talk to each other. And using this one-stop, web-based app means everything is integrated for your handyman business.
It gives you access to a structured and powerful business tool, with everything you need at your fingertips, that can be used on your phone, tablet or computer.
Not everyone is great at figures but that’s not a problem with Pocket PA because using it each day allows you to understand the financial health of your business. It’s never been easier, and one-click visual dials will help you manage your cash flow like a king so your job as a home handyman can remain practical and show off the talents which you excel at.
Tracking your payments can be a headache for even the best electrical handyman but the app logs and records all money you receive against each client as you go along. And it’s never been easier to see who might still owe you money because there is one button to press to see a full list up anyone that hasn’t yet paid in full.

Apart from the great colour-coded appointment diary – so it’s easy for you to see where you should be each day – there is also an online booking tool for your clients to access. They can be filling slots in your diary even when you are driving around or in bed fast asleep. It can be integrated into your website or your social media pages so you can be working smarter and not harder with Pocket PA every single day.
As if that wasn’t enough for any handyman, the app keeps you looking totally professional because it can send automated reminders to your clients to let them know of all upcoming bookings so no more forgotten timings or last-minute cancellations.
Being a full-time or part-time handyman means you’re likely to be more focused on practical tasks but that doesn’t have to be at the expense of being professional – and letting Pocket PA take care of the admin tasks is one very smart move.
