Meet our director, Dan Pollard. He’s been in the plumbing business for over 20 years now. Apart for his obvious passions in life - his loving family, his dog Fergus, being in business, building things — he has an insatiable desire to solve puzzles and invent things.

Dan’s brain is wired in a way that means he’s always thinking about how to maximise efficiency, in whatever he’s doing. So when it came to running his plumbing business, he was pretty dissatisfied with every system he looked at, because nobody else had given it more thought than Dan. In all his years of working as a plumber and managing his business, he’d thought in great detail about the workflow of a job — from the moment it came through to when it was paid. What he wanted was a system that could eliminate all double–handling, automate as much of the workflow as possible, highlight where attention was needed, and fully maximise efficiency.

So Dan began his journey to develop Fergus. He combined forces with Jordan Clist, the brilliant lead developer, and Andrew Poh, a tech whizz, talented interface designer and product manager. What originally started out as a small project has evolved into something with a life of its own.

As more and more people discover Fergus, the community expands and word keeps spreading. Development is driven by customer feedback and is constantly being pushed and improved. 

Dan’s plumbing business 'Your Local Plumber' now has sixteen staff. He runs YLP alongside the Fergus team, which means that every new feature in Fergus is tested by a real company which truly relies on the best possible software. Fergus allows him to know exactly how his plumbing business is tracking, even when he’s busy with other business. Improvements in Fergus don’t get released until they've proven to have improved the efficiency and workflow at YLP, which means you can depend on the best possible software for your business too.

Fergus encourages businesses to run professionally and Dan can’t wait to see the impact the system has on the industry a whole.
