What service management software is everyone using?
« on: March 12, 2014, 01:09:53 PM »
FULL DISCLOSURE: I work for Mhelpdesk, the top-rated field service management software company.

What type of software is everyone using to manage their work orders, scheduling, invoices, etc? We are seeing a huge uptick in companies moving from pen and paper to software and I'm interested to see what is working and what is not working.

I use Logiserv and I bought it about 20 years ago. I just use it for record keeping and making out my invoices. Since I downsized and became a one man operation, I don't use the inventory and scheduling anymore.

ryanshank,

Thanks for the Honesty, much appreciated.

I need a better way of doing business.

Something reasonable enough for a one man operation...   :popcorn:

Quickbooks and Google calendar for scheduling.  I'm looking to improve.  I have mobilebiz on my android phone but haven't used it.  Mostly because it doesn't integrate with Quickbooks.
Why isn't there any pricing on your website?

So would this replace my quickbooks? or would I still need a finance program?
