Getting paid faster: meet Sean K.

February 9, 2019


A longtime technician with Field Nation, Sean K. has been on the platform since the beginning, when he had two offices and six techs on the road and relied on the app to keep them all busy. Having since scaled back for more work-life balance, he uses the app even more now as a one-man-show. As a matter of fact, he’s completed nearly 700 work orders across more than 100 clients while maintaining a perfect 5-star rating.

Roughly half of Sean’s business comes from Field Nation, and he loves the flexibility it gives him to pick and choose jobs that fit his schedule.

“If there’s an issue or project I’m working on, I won’t take any new jobs. The biggest bonus is the flexibility.”

A specialist in networking, Sean manages everything from complex business networks all the way down to basic networking. A master of routers, switches, and firewalls, he’s also become adept at using the platform to grow his business and build strong client relationships. 

“I find that an extra touch pays off big time. A little thank you note for the work, for example, can make a huge difference. I’ve developed so many relationships with buyers that I work for some of them regularly.” 

When Sean heard about Field Nation Pro, the premium tier for technicians that offers faster payment and better access to opportunities, the biggest attraction for him was the On-Demand Pay feature. 

“I like to have a little boost in my pocket over the weekend. And sometimes an unexpected expense comes up, and I don’t have to wait till Friday.” 

With the option to get paid when a work order is approved, Sean has faster, more consistent cash flow that lets him plan for business expenses and manage his money in the way that’s best for his overall finances. This has given him more space and energy to focus on delivering his best work and building his client relationships.

“I’ve always been about the relationships. Personality and relationships help me skip a lot of the formalities with work orders and routing — they just send the jobs right to me. And I’ll tell you what, I love On-Demand Pay with Pro, it’s just huge.”
