Stacks of paper, lost information, and inefficiencies are a drag on your business. Time is money, so every hour you spend on paperwork and outdated billing processes equals revenue lost. For instance, not utilizing credit card payments on-site can result in cash or check payments being lost or stolen or invoices going unpaid for weeks, months, or even longer.

On-site payment processing with a two-way QuickBooks Online sync streamlines billing, reduces time chasing customers for payment and ensures payment in your account before your tech leaves the job site. It also eliminates the time you waste manually entering payment information in multiple places, as well as the time spent finding and correcting errors that can occur with manual data entry.

Effective FSM software also provides a holistic customer data management system that goes far beyond general contact information and the most recent service call currently stored in a spreadsheet or taped to your file cabinet. At the push of a button and on any device, you can access a customer’s full record, including contact and billing information, job locations, activity notes, full job history, installed assets, and previous and outstanding invoices and payments. It also ensures a more efficient, integrated process for employees, with electronic work orders that connect office and technicians in real-time and providing field teams the information they need to get the job done right the first time.

Field service software also creates a better customer experience and increases retention. Replacing that clipboard and stack of papers with a mobile device that contains a clean, electronic work order with paperless receipts demonstrates modernization that builds trust and confidence. Customers get the full story of the work you perform with easily accessible customer portals that include all previous work orders, invoices, documents, and photos, as well as the ability to easily request future service.
