Fergus Software - Our Story
Fergus is the brainchild of Dan Pollard, a veteran Tradie. He dreamed it up a few years ago, while he was knee deep in the trenches of running his own trades business.
After going bust once and burning out once, Dan figured out that a trades business needs proper systems in place to keep it running – without running its owner into the ground.
In his search for great systems he developed Fergus, and it was so good he was able to grow his business from 4 vans to 24 vans in less than 4 years. In fact, he even worked himself out of a job.
Fergus Software - Our Promise
Dan and the rest of the team at Fergus have made it their mission to build truly successful trade and service businesses that stand up on their own, without the owner.
How are we achieving our promise? By giving businesses the right tools at the right time to get the job done without wasting any time.
We’re the operational backbone, taking care of the day-to-day and providing complete clarity and control. We’re giving business owners the time and smart insight they need to grow and succeed.
