Spending Too Much on Service Vendors?

3 Steps to Success

Are your service vendors charging you the correct labor rate? Was the amount you were charged the rate you had initially agreed upon a few months ago?

These are common questions facility managers struggle with when paying vendors for work performed. Typically, this involves digging up archived paperwork just to verify if a Vendors invoice charges are valid. Through the Work Order Network, facility managers can verify invoices with confidence just by implementing a few key steps:

Determine Standard Rates & Implement Price Lists

Once you have agreed upon specific labor rates and materials with your vendor, you will want to track and store these amounts as a Price List. A Price List is a standard set of labor and material rates that can be configured for a particular vendor or trade to ensure that Vendors are only submitting invoices based upon pre-negotiated work rates.
Work Order Network
When service vendors submit invoices for completed work over the Work Order Network, they will only be allowed to charge the rates established in the Price List. Additional items added to the invoice would need to be pre-approved prior to submission.

Set Not-to-Exceed (NTE) Limits

In addition to setting standard Price Lists for your vendors, the Work Order Network allows you to control the total cost of a service request by automatically placing Not-to-Exceed (NTE) limits on issued work. When your vendors submit an invoice, the total charges on the invoice must be lower than the pre-defined NTE amount. Any work that requires a vendor to exceed the NTE limit would need to be pre-approved prior to invoice submission.

Automatically Assign Warranties to Work

Automatically assign a 30 day warranty on every asset for every service repair performed. If service is requested on the same asset within the warranty period, you’ll be automatically notified. With vendor invoices clearly marked as “under warranty” upon submission, accounting can dispute invoices submitted by vendors with anything other than a $0.00 amount.

All current and past warranties associated with a specific asset are tracked in a history log, detailing who the warranty is with, the work order number associated with the warranty, and the number of days till warranty expires.

Corrigo Offers Special Incentives for Veterans Joining Work Order Network

Company joins VetFran, part of the International Franchise Association

Allen, Texas (June 12, 2013) — Corrigo, the creator of the Work Order Network, a powerful multisite facilities management solution, recently announced its support for VetFran, a program that offers training, mentoring and financial incentives to veterans interested in owning their own small businesses or franchises.

VetFran, an initiative of the International Franchise Association (IFA), is geared toward helping veterans of the U.S. armed forces establish themselves as entrepreneurs and business professionals. Corrigo is a member of the IFA and will offer special incentives specifically targeted to benefit VetFran participants.

“We applaud Corrigo for their deep commitment to IFA’s efforts to help veterans,” said Steve Caldeira, President & CEO of IFA. “We encourage all franchise businesses, including franchisors and franchisees, to answer the call to offer business ownership and career opportunities to veterans, military spouses and wounded warriors. Not only is this critical for the economic and social stability of veterans and their families, but it is an important component of the U.S. economic recovery.”

Corrigo’s Work Order Network allows its users to connect to a powerful line of communications and analytics software, which provide a higher degree of oversight and greater ease in managing facilities. It serves as a valuable financial tool when coordinating facilities management needs.

“The Work Order Network is an outstanding tool for people who need to gain control over their small businesses or franchises,” said John Dynes, a Navy veteran and Director of National Accounts at Corrigo. “America’s veterans deserve every opportunity to succeed upon reentering the job market. Those who choose to start up a small business or operate a franchise face a lot of challenges, but the Work Order Network gives them an advantage. The network helps them more effectively manage their facilities and control their costs.”

“We are proud to support American veterans through this outstanding VetFran program,” said John Phillips, President and CEO of Corrigo. “It’s no secret that our servicemen and women have the drive, determination and work ethic needed to succeed in the business world. We’re committed to giving veterans the support they need as they embark on business and franchise endeavors.”
