businesses who use workguru, love it

A lot of apps do one thing really well but could never do everything we needed. WorkGuru is just different. Things are just where you'd expect them to be, the whole platform is super intuitive. We've always felt that WorkGuru has our back. I'd happily give them a 10/10 for customer service.

We love the ability to customise many of the features to suit our business and it has definitely had a positive impact on our understanding of what jobs make us money and what jobs don’t.

Before WorkGuru, we might not have realised we already had $50,000 worth of stock on hand and ordered more unnecessarily. Thanks to WorkGuru, our operations are smoother, our team is better equipped, and our clients are happier. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
