Executive Summary

In today’s fast-paced business environment, efficient and transparent work order management is crucial for companies like Truesource that serve clients with extensive service contracts. TrueSource, in collaboration with FocustApps, recognized the need for a modern solution to streamline work order tracking, replace outdated paper methods, and enhance communication between affiliate admins and technicians. The result of this collaboration is Affiliate Connect, a comprehensive web and mobile-based application designed to optimize the entire work order cycle. This case study explores the implementation, benefits, and outcomes of Affiliate Connect in revolutionizing TrueSource’s work order management processes.


TrueSource, a leading service provider with clients such as Target, Home Depot, and Starbucks, faced a significant challenge in efficiently managing work orders related to facility maintenance, repairs, general handyman tasks, material handling, and emergency services. The existing paper-based method for work order tracking led to inefficiencies, delays, and a lack of real-time visibility into the status of work orders. To address these issues, TrueSource collaborated with FocustApps to develop Affiliate Connect, a modern and user-friendly application for managing work orders.

Problem Statement

TrueSource’s existing work order management process relied heavily on manual paperwork and lacked integration between clients, affiliate admins, and technicians. This led to several critical issues:

  1. Inefficiency: Manual paperwork and phone calls resulted in delays and data entry errors, impacting the speed of service delivery.
  2. Lack of Transparency: Clients had limited visibility into the status of their work orders, causing frustration and uncertainty.
  3. Ineffective Communication: Communication between affiliate admins and technicians was often cumbersome, leading to misinterpretation and incomplete information sharing.
  4. Budget Management: Admins struggled to handle technician requests for budget  increases efficiently.
  5. Resource Allocation: Assigning the right technician to each work order was challenging  and often based on incomplete information.
