New for members - the FlatRateNOW advantage

Business management

Members of The Master Plumbers and Gasfitters Association of WA will be the winners in our new partnership with FlatRateNOW.

The partnership means members will be eligible for a significant discount off the usual licence fee for FlatRateNOW's quoting and invoicing software. We've negotiated this deal because we are committed to helping individual plumbing contractors operate more profitably, while at the same time helping the entire plumbing industry enhance its professionalism.

It also provides our members with an opportunity to give their businesses a competitive edge at a much cheaper price than non-members. Not only that, but FlatRateNOW is a powerful addition to our existing members-only tools for accurate and profitable quoting - namely, the Pricing and Estimating Guide and Cost Calculator Guide.

Why FlatRateNOW?

After testing and reviewing FlatRateNOW, we're convinced it will deliver real benefits. Any plumbing contractor who uses it can expect to slash the time they spend on quoting, ordering and invoicing, stop losing money due to using outdated product and material costings, increase their sales and cash flow, and improve their customer satisfaction.

For those not already familiar with FlatRateNOW, it is a quoting and invoicing software product for Australian plumbers, drainers, gasfitters and electricians. The local credentials go even further, because it is entirely Australian-owned and has an Australian-based support team. This means it is fully compatible with our industry and anyone you talk to will understand the environment you are working in.

Free webinar

There will be a free webinar on Wednesday 27 April 2022 to explain FlatRateNOW’s features and benefits in detail. We highly recommend it to all members, especially those who have small or mid-sized businesses.
