This feature is currently being rolled out to all our customers
While in this phase you may notice duplicate sites in your system. Note that all the sites you created in the past will not be visible and there was not rules that sites must be unique. This is not longer the case, but you may have some from the old sites system. Get in touch with support if you need help cleaning them up.


You can create and manage customers on the fly for upcoming jobs, and now you can do the same for the sites that these jobs take place on.

A "Sites" menu option has been added to the Fergus navigation bar and lets you manage all the sites entered in your Fergus account.

When to use it

Sites will add an additional layer of detail to jobs. You can now easily specify the correct contacts for jobs on site and manage these people. The biggest advantage with this new sites module is that you can create sites based on the actual physical location and that will allow you to keep a track record of who used to be a contact there over time. Think residential site addresses with multiple tenants across a number of years. You can see who used to be the contact for that site
Head to Sites to manage all sites created alongside jobs you've entered. You can also add new sites with contact people for upcoming jobs.
Previously, you would only be able to add sites while creating a job.

How to use it

Filter Sites

On the Sites page, click the All Sites dropdown and select the statuses you'd like to appear:

Active sites have an active job against them
