Protecting the Tradie way of life.
It's widely recognised through the trades and services industry that late and non payments have a huge financial and personal impact on small business owners, their families, friends and inevitably, the Tradies themselves.
The impact from the stress and anxiety caused by this, can be felt in the form of long weekends spent completing admin, and late nights making awkward money chasing-calls, all instead of spending time with the kids at the beach or having beers at the Pub with mates on days off.
It was through these types of frustrations that Cradle was born.
Our goal is to ensure trade and service providers are paid on time and in full for the works they complete. It's that simple.
Our solution is a custom payment management system designed specifically for trade and service projects which protects both the Tradie and their customer.
This is a new, innovative way of managing business and we understand it involves changing the way things have always been done, but we believe it's a battle worth taking on in order to move forward and provide a fairer and simple way of doing business.
We firmly believe that chasing late payments should be a thing of the past.
Cradle was born out of our own personal frustration and longing for "a better way" to do business. We were constantly bogged down in chasing late payments for our landscaping business and felt like we never had time to grow the business or focus on anything but late customer payments.
We set out to find a product that could help us and we found nothing. And with that, we designed Cradle; a payments system for Tradies that is fair.
Technology and a sleek design has allowed us to bring our dream of Cradle to life and we hope it helps you to continue to run and ultimately grow a successful business, for you and your family.
