When a customer reaches out and requests a quote, we usually reply with a work order. A work order is a document that includes all the details about the job, such as the number of hours needed, the price, the estimated completion date, the schedule of payments, and the like. A work order is simply a way of letting a customer know what the job will look like once the job is completed.
In an ideal world, all the details would be in a contract, but we wouldn’t be able to actually issue a work order except in cases of emergency. Instead, all we would need to do is give the customer a time-stamp that the job started and the contract is complete. Most likely, we’d email all the information out to the customer, though this might be a bit of a hassle.
Sure, its possible that the customer can be charged a fee if they do not fill out a work order. However, it would not be a new practice to charge a fee for an incomplete work order. The issue lies in the fact that a work order is a contract, meaning the customer is essentially agreeing that the job is completed. In other words, the customer is agreeing to the job before it is actually completed. This is often referred to as “pre-emptive payment.
The same can be said about a job order. In this case, a customer is agreeing to the job before it is actually done. This is also known as pre-emptive payment.
The issue with pre-emptive payment, aside from confusing a few people, is that it can cause a lack of clarity as to whether or not the customer actually agreed to the job. For example, if a job order for a piece of clothing is completed, a customer will often not know if the job order was completed or not. It’s very important for employers to make sure that the job order was actually completed by the customer.
Pre-emptive payment is the practice of accepting a job that isn’t properly completed into a job order and then completing the job when it is done. Basically, Pre-emptive payment is a way of saying, “I’m sorry, that was a mistake, we’re going to change it.” The same thing can be done with the word order.
If you find yourself in a job order that isn’t being completed, you can ask a customer to return the order with a handwritten note. It may seem like a crude technique, but it works. It’s always better to be honest and upfront with your customers, and if you’re on Pre-emptive Payment, you’re not going to find a job for your company.
It’s hard to believe that someone, somewhere has spent so much time thinking things through with precision until they come to the conclusion that they are better off with the old job order form that they did before they found their way into the digital world.
Basically, the old job order form is a way for you to write that you need a book, a magazine, a DVD, or a new TV. You can also specify that someone needs to pack up a TV or a book or whatever and you can fill out a note. Now that the Internet is such a vast place, you dont have to be so precise, because the Internet is sort of like a gigantic library and the library is a good way to find your way.
The Internet is a good place to find your way around, but sometimes you are stuck when you can’t find what you need. This is where the old job order form comes in. You can specify the exact job that needs done, like if you are going to buy a new TV, you can specify exactly what you want done. You can even specify where you want it done, like if you want to pack your TV, you can specify your room.
