Pros: This software offers great functionality and customization, so far has been the one that adapted the most to our requirements. New functionalities are added on weekly basis which is really nice. Price is very accessible for small business. Is easy to use once that you get the grip on it which takes time because some stuff is somehow counter intuitive, I seriously recommend getting the paid support/training sessions otherwise you will get very frustrated.
integration with QB and use of credit card payment is solid.

Cons: Customer support time is frustrating, they take at least several hours to get back to you then sometimes they will reply and stop answering for another several hours, this made us almost regret our decision when setting up our account. They offer documentation for the software but a lot of topics are mere drafts and do not contain a lot of information. Despite the fact that they answer really slow they are very helpful with the answers provided and you can be sure your problem will get solve 90% of the time or a feature request will be placed.

Sometimes the system gets really slow , specially on Monday mornings and end of the month, contacting support and letting them know seems to fix the issue most of the time...

The Android app could use some improvement although it has improve a lot in the last 6 months.

Overall: We boost productivity big time with this software!

It is a great communication software and easy to use.

Pros: What i like most about the software is the ease of the program. When i input an address it starts to give recommendations and it fills in the blanks for you. You can also view a map of the location. We use this software everyday throughout the day and is a great program for the office to communicate with people in the field without having to call them.

Cons: We have used kickserv for a few years now and i really haven't run into any major problems with the software. The few times i did, the tech helped out immediately to get my issues resolved.

Overall: Ease of use, great communication with techs, maps

Pros: Love the scheduling

Cons: Not enough instruction on how to set up invoice information (some of the fields do not seem to work). Overall documentation needs work as far as more detail information and maybe examples.Would be nice to have something to keep track of how much you charge and collecting money. Would like to click on the Work Order in the calendar view and bring the WO up. Have to exit invoice screen in order to log a payment.

Overall: Scheduling

We've used this Kickserv for years! It's a good, solid program that is continually being upgraded.

Pros: Reasonable pricing. Good set of features. Great customer service. We've used this program for at least 10 years.

Cons: It's looking better, but still a bit "clunky". Not very intuitive if you're new to the system. Screen views are stretched out and take up a lot of room. You have to scroll a lot to find things. It could be more compact and easier to maneuver. The Android version is the same way - multiple screens to find things. You have to learn all the workarounds to be productive.

Overall: Let's us keep all customer data in one place. Syncs with our bookkeeping program. Internet based lets us work from anywhere. Good value for the $$$.

Very very very Professional!

Pros: The Sync functions with google calendar, text messages, email reminders, maps and auto populate functions inside the app. Syncs with quickbooks and credit card processing, makes things very simple.

Cons: Thy have a feature to add pictures but the load time is extremely slow so I use another service provider for that function.

Overall, good experience. Not a fan of the electronic Customer support, prefer talking to a person.

Pros: Overall it was user friendly. The sync with quickbooks was satisfactory and very useful. Customer reports average to good.

Cons: Cumbersome when providing multiple services for a customer. Tracking service history of Customers. Limited with respect to multiple invoicing types to Customers. Invoicing did not fit our business model.

Indispensable. Simple to use and manage your customers and jobs from one place.

Pros: I love how easy it is as admin to add users, customize certain fields and see who has what on their calendar, emailing invoices to customers from the software, integration with QB.

Cons: I can't progress invoice, therefor I can't take advantage of really knowing the money in the pipelines. Certain custom fields for a customer's location don't carry over when you create a new job in that location, creating double entry.

Overall: The benefits are countless and far outweigh the features that we still don't have. What I love is that Kickserv is constantly adding new features and increasing the software's functionality.

Kickserv has helped us manage our schedule since the beginning. A valuable resource for business.

Pros: It's only gotten better since services sidekick. The speed and ease of use has been unparalleled with other scheduling software. You can really jump in and start using this program right away, without using tutorials.
The calendar interface is the best in the industry, we use this program for all 10 of our staff using both apple and android hardware.
Billing/invoicing is so fast and can generate customer payments seemingly instantly. Plus you can run reports so our management team can keep track of how our business is performing.
Kickserv support staff is available by chat if there are ever any issues and they are all friendly and helpful.

Cons: Sometimes kickserv does not move quickly. It has only been getting better, but when it slows to a halt it means a lot of extra work for our administrative staff to make sure all of our techs can keep moving in the field.
When kickserv works our techs can see their job description, customer information, prices and leave job notes. When kickserv doesn't work or is slow, our techs literally have to sit and wait until the next page loads to know where they are going. Our office has had to print entire days of jobs so the crews can bring paper copies of their jobs, and then submit the paper job notes to the office so they can enter the job notes once kickserv starts moving again.

Having to do this and not being able rely on the system has potentially cost Friendly Giant $1000's over the last 4 months.

Our technicians have gotten angry and frustrated when they can't do their job when the system we rely on doesn't work.

Overall: Smooth business flow is the main and best feature of kickserv. When everything is working our business flow is quick and communication between us and our customers becomes clear.

I think Kickserv is just okay!

Pros: I love that I can keep all my clients and everything in one place. Customer service is awesome to deal with.

Cons: The mobile site doesn't function as well as the desktop and we're out and about a lot!
Also, for months there have been ongoing issues of different sorts, this doesn't help me or our business, when I need client addresses and phone numbers and the site is down.
Quickbooks syncing hasn't worked right in awhile. At this point I'm not sure why I'm still using kickserv or quickbooks, i'm thinking of what else I can do at this point as it's not worth the money.

Overall: I can keep my clients and all jobs information in one place.

by Kickserv on July 17, 2017

Worked with customer today on the phone and screen share. We found that her item list needed to be updated from Quickbooks first. We cleared the item list and ran the sync again. The invoices are now sync'ing to Quickbooks successfully.

Best kept secret. Reasonably priced. Does everything a small service-based business needs for CRM

Pros: Keeps all of my office and field workers on the same page. Love that it can also sync to my QB Desktop software.

Cons: Can't edit invoices on Kickserv after they are synced with QB. A lot of steps to email the estimate after it's prepared. Downtime during the day when I'm trying to pull opportunities up and provide customers with a quote. Can't easily view line items on invoices on the Android Mobile app. Support takes a day to get a hold of you sometimes. I also don't like that the IP of the customer is not included when they sign an invoice, as my lawyer advises it may not hold up in court for the signed contract without it. I also wish I could integrate payments with my Authorize.net account. pany sets) for credit card use.

Pros: Signature from Customers.
User Friendly.
Customer can send revisions.
Syncs with quickbooks...........

Cons: I just have two comments.
1. Connecting the Software to Bank Accounts can provide several advantages. I know doing this will cost a lot of money but it will allow the administration department have a better connection with the finance department.
2. Noticed you changed background color from red to blue. Red makes people think aggressive and self confidence. Blue makes people feel safe. I think Red might go more with what you are trying to build.

I love this software and would be lost without it!

Pros: We like the syncing capabilities, customization options, reports, and task/reminder functions. This app was truly created with the intention of giving you peace of mind that you've never forgotten something. It makes us feel truly organized and gives us the ability to keep our processes working smoothly.

Cons: When Service Sidekick got switched over to the new platform, Kickserv, we were excited for the new features, but the downtime and constant account issues have been frustrating. Support is sometimes difficult to get ahold of, as well. That being said, the incident report updates that we signed up for, have been great during these circumstances and Pete is always very helpful when he's providing support.

Overall: Organization, Peace of Mind, Customization, Reports, Syncing Capabilities, Follow-Up Reminders

Pros: The software is very organized, easy to navigate through, I like that there's more than one way to search for something. I think the Dispatch View is an amazing concept! I am in the service industry and have technicians that I send all over S. OC, having a map right there and not having to switch back and forth with google maps would be wonderful! I really hope they will be able to fully incorporate it into the software. The texting concept is another wonderful idea I recently saw added. A lot of my customers ask for texts because their at work and in meetings etc, so to have this feature fully functional would be another efficient bonus!

Cons: There really isn't anything I dislike about this software. Recently, the Kickserv Team had to do a massive switch over, customers from their old software switched over to the new one and it caused problems across the board. However, our business didn't suffer too much and Kickserv's tech team was on a solution right away! I also really appreciated their update blog while they were fixing everything. We also had a problem with syncing to Quickbooks and Quickbooks locking our ability to change contact info from Kickserv. But that's been fixed as well!

Pros: I love that you can do many things with this software, but my favorite is that it keeps in contact with my customer sending out emails the day before I arrive and again on the day of my appointment. Amazing, it has cut down the to almost 0 of customers missing our appointment.

Cons: The thing that I do not like is when using from a smart phone in the field, you open the program and a number tasks close down the program and restarts. It never lets you use these tasks. Wish they would fix it so the phone can access the program. Love it if I could email their invoice from smart phone.

Overall: This software helps my business stay very well organized. My last business I used just an accounting program and had to hire 2 office personnel to run the back end of my business. With this program, I can do my back end with the help of my bookkeeper. I authorized my bookkeeper as admin personnel and from his office he keeps me organized with my quarterly's and end year.

Works very well in scheduling and communication with our technicians.

Pros: The ease of use and ability to sync with Quickbooks (although not seamlessly) are the best attributes.
The search feature and ability to use custom fields are nice to have.

Cons: The software is unreliable. I have been using it for 3 months and am surprised how many problems there are. The program encounters numerous slow downs or problems and it takes hours (sometimes longer) for the support team to fix the problem. Never had constant problems like this with Service Sidekick. It is frustrating to wonder if the program will be functional from one day to the next.
The program does sync with Quickbooks, but the data doesn't transfer completely. After the sync, we have to go in and manually input data or amend items like the customer name and terms.
The android mobile app crashes constantly and is unreliable.

Vendor Response

by Kickserv on July 17, 2017

Hello Robert - We know that our application has had downtimes in the last few months that are far beyond anyones comfort level. We have gotten our wits around a couple of issues that we inherited with our finial migration of customers from our legacy system. Now that all that is behind us we have seen much better results. See our results here: http://uptime.kickserv.com The Quickbooks sync should never be altering data. I have not heard of this issue before. I will reach out to you via our tech support lines to see what is going on with your account. Lastly, the android mobile app has been corrected and is no longer crashing due to the mapping error.

KS is the answer to our small business.

Cons: There are times I wish it was more flexible, like changing a job type from repair to estimate, I also wish it would transfer information from Kick Serv to Quick Books

Overall: it make schduling for service very easy.

Kickserv is a great asset to our company. Direct contact support (phone) would make it even better.

Pros: The features and functionality work well for us. We would like greater integration of labour values and mark up rates so the system can be more tailored towards a greater perspective of total company earnings. We think Kickserv has a very bright future under the right circumstance.

Cons: The system is going in the right direction but needs greater refinement while adding more diversity so the product can be tailored to difference business sectors.

Overall: Greater perspective over field operations.

Pros: when it works it's exactly what we need. it seems i need 100 characters to submit this form. unfortuantely I can't seem to find 100 nice words to say about your service.

Cons: there are way too many glitches for the price tag & support is never anywhere to be found. In the time it took for your tech support to get back to us we have already found another field management software and are taking the steps to transfer over. unfortunately, we are running a business and don't have the time to waste while ksa gets their act together. we would expect this of a beta test, not a paid service.

Overall: we are getting better at troubleshooting problems created by the software.

The "glitches" or downtime he is correct. They were to numerous during our migration of customers from legacy to our new Kickserv platform in April 2017. We have since corrected all those issues inherited from that one time event. We apologize very much so that we did not anticipate those issues better.

The old system service psychic was very useful and user-friendly. The new software is terrible.

Pros: The calendar is the biggest strength of this program. I like being able to use colors for different types of jobs. Also when you move something on the calendar it automatically updates. Our new software does not do that and I miss it. Service psychic used to be very easy to add people into the system and get them scheduled. Kick serve was not. The quick add was a great function when we were at tradeshows or when you're on the phone with a customer.

Cons: The reporting is near worthless. None of the reports are ever accurate, and trying to get someone to help you make them accurate was like banging your head against a wall. The system was incredibly unreliable It is constantly going down. For a web-based system, businesses rely on its functionality during business hours. We had many days of inability to use the system. They're always seem to be some reason why it crashed. The system was much much better when it was service sidekick. We had to build a salesforce software system because it was so dysfunctional. The customer service was also incredibly bad.

Overall: During the service sidekick years, many. During the kick serve years nearly 0 other than scheduling.

We migrated hundreds of our original customers from our legacy system to Kickserv starting in April 2017 through May 2017. We inherited some issues that we certainly should have anticipated or planned for. We did find a couple processing issues bringing on all those older accounts so quickly. We have since cleared those problems and added many more resources to handle much more growth. We sincerely apologize to all our loyal customers for enduring those weeks of processing delays.

Pros: Mobile app has great features, QuickBooks desktop integration is a plus, ease of reports. Overall the design of the software would be very good, if their servers could handle the volume of hits it was getting.

Cons: VERY slow at times, been a lot of downtime recently (sprint 2017), horrible customer service - can never get a human. Very passive to answer questions and help train end user. I feel as though their growth is outpacing their development. Further, quickbooks desktop integration has become very expensive.

Overall: Everything but canned notes.

Hello Ron, Thank you for your time and your comments. I wanted to see if can clarify for you and perhaps help the issue you repeated about the cursor. What type of device are you using where the cursor is sensitive? Have you tried not to use your cursor or mouse while in the Kickerv screen or forms and use the TAB key more? If you cursor is moving around fast you can adjust that speed from your laptop if that is what you are using. Here, this may help: Open Mouse Properties by clicking the Start button The Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type mouse, and then click Mouse. Click the Buttons tab, and then do any of the following: To swap the functions of the right and left mouse buttons, under Button configuration, select the Switch primary and secondary buttons check box. To change how quickly you must click the buttons to perform a double-click, under Double-click speed, move the Speed slider toward Slow or Fast.

Overall, I like Kickserv. I rely on it for my business, and the product continues to improve.

Pros: Their web site when used on a desktop computer is great for scheduling and dispatching. We use it throughout the day to line up jobs for our technicians. Previously existing customers are easy to find using their search feature. I can add a new job, and then click a button and it sends the technician a text message with the job description and address. The technician can click on the address link and get the GPS coordinates on their smart phone. The workflow is logical and consistent. When things go wrong, they are good about communicating what is happening.

Cons: We are really only able to use part of the service. While it is excellent for scheduling, it is not useful for invoicing unless your invoicing needs are very basic. The product is not compatible with Quick Books groups. I don't use their mobile app. I prefer their mobile web site, but recent changes have made their mobile site less useful. Their server sometimes gets overloaded and the software becomes unresponsive. Tech support is inconsistent. Sometimes very helpful. Sometimes condescending. If a customer has an email address, it will automatically send this customer a reminder notice. There is no way to turn this feature on or off. For recurring jobs where we go back to the customer again and again, this is a problem because we don't always schedule the customer on the same day every month. It also gives the customer a link to the customer account center, which we also do not use, since we are unable to use Kickserv's invoicing feature.

While Kickserv continues to make improvements to the service, I frequently find myself frustrated because improvements are often not fully tested, resulting in unpleasant side effects. Example - recent formatting changes have made the scrollable area of their mobile web site very small and difficult to work with. Another change awhile back formatted all of my old customer data in such a way that their addresses would fail to appear in the text messages sent to my technicians. I am having to manually change all of these.

Overall: It helps me manage four irrigation service technicians and keep them going where they need to go.

Kickserv is a great app that I have used for my Piano Service Company.

Pros: All inclusive connectivity of all the data needed to run my (Piano Service) business. I consider myself a fairly expert user of kickserv, using it from its early inception, then called ' Service Sidekick'. I am totally on board to help bring it to its fullest potential, so dont take the cons section too hard...I use the system every day, all through the day, and my entire operation depends on this most awesome application.

Cons: Software is gradually degrading. Latest update published makes KS sluggish, screen freezes constantly during scrolling. Reports have been altered to the point of useless.
Quadruple redundant data entry, creating and closing an event, then a job.
No auto fill on repeated fields.
Phone numbers require dashes be entered. Format the field for straight 10 digit entry.
Area code, city, and state are almost always the same in my service area. Why dont these fields hold and auto fill the last data entered? Internet standard these days is that the state is a 'state' field, only accepting 2 CAP characters in verified state identifiers.
No notification if email is successful, and no notice when messages fail. This has caught me with my pants down with customers...( yes customers, not contacts) emailing time sensitive invoices and opportunitys.... guys, they are ESTIMATES, Not opportunitys!!
Stripe send a payment received email notification...Awesome.
The text is the problem. First words of auto generated notification says Congratulations!.
Congratulations? We are small businesses....we take money, every day, all day. It is inapropriate, and smacks of a Condesending viewpoint.

Miss labled fields: My customers are my 'customers' , not my 'contacts'. New address verify is great on service address, Why does it not verify billing address? Getting paid is a very important aspect of small business. Makes no sense.

Hello Scott, We agree that April and May were not good months for Kickserv. We are so very sorry. We did correct the couple of issues that were inherited from the massive migration of hundreds of original customers from our legacy platform. We regret not anticipating those issues prior. I would like to clarify some points you made: 1. We do not require dashes in phone numbers fields. 2. We do indicate if an email has failed in your Dashboard > email activity page. 3. Opportunities is a way to make our program more applicable to more people. When you do send out the template it does say estimate. We can help you with how it looks if you need something custom. Let me know. 4. Regarding your comment about the billing address, typically we are not verifying the address so much as we are just indicating on the map where that service address located for routing purposes and driving instructions.

Pros: i like the fact that we can use it on multiple devices. the newest thing is entering the address. it automatically pulls up info based on web searches.

Cons: 1. i'd like to see is multiple reminder entries. there have been a few instances where a caller has called in a few times and i put in a second reminder but it doesn't always show the 1st reminder (or initial call) i have learned now to take a second step and jot it in the notes section. 2. when i do put in a second reminder on the same customer, it doesnt show up at the top of the list, so if i dont physically write it down (cause i sometimes go straight to kickserv when on a call) i sometimes forget who i just talked to. 3. ive been having issues for months now syncing with quickbooks, and all i get is we undergoing a software update.

Overall: sends reminders via text

Pros: It's easy to use and it looks very professional to customers when they view estimates, invoices, etc. The customer portal was a great selling feature for customers with multiple properties.

Cons: Frequent server downtime causes costly and frustrating downtime for office/field staff. Customer service isn't the most responsive, and one request took 4 months to get an answer. Custom templates sound like a great feature, but they don't respond very well within the program and are difficult to create. Mobile app is buggy and practically unusable.

Overall: More efficient work flow management from estimate to invoice.

Pros: Web based simplicity. Does generally most everything we need. It's mobile accessible (with apps). Has GPS but needs constant tracking. Has API.

Mobile Sync issues and workflow improvements. Can use more user feedback and contextual information in the right places. Native apps and limited api.

Overall: Fairly mobile agile job management. Online payments. Quickbooks integration.

Pros: I like the price point, I like that there is relatively little down time. And I like some of the features the software has

Cons: There are several complaints that I have had from day one. First the reporting is terrible, building a report is often a trial and error endeavor. Even after successfully building a report there are time that it just breaks. Seeing the "Ah, Nuts we'll ninja the heck out of that error" leaves me with nightmares. There are simple reports that should come standard that every business should use. Other than the reports, I find that the software was built to fit many businesses which make sense; however, it makes it harder for my specific business to work with a higher functionality. I cant attach cars to work orders instead I have to print it out and highlight it for my guys. There are other issues like this.

Overall: It has helped me keep track of customers but painfully so. The only reason I have not switched is because I do not have the time to learn a new program. If all of my complaints are resolved before I have the time to implement a new program I will stay; however, service has yet to make me someone who will recommend people or be loyal to this program.

I think you put a product out that has NOT been throughly beta tested.

Went to customer's place of business and met with him one-on-one. We spoke for a couple of hours on what the issues were. We found some issues that were certainly areas that I made a list of to get addressed by my product manage as well as fixed by the development team. We also discovered a couple processes that were being done incorrectly and I did my best to clear those steps up with the owner of this business as well as his lead field tech.

Hate this new layout. It is very confusing and seems to take too many steps.

Also, the link to stripe for the customer has also been very helpful.

Cons: The places the jobs and invoices goes needs to be cleaned up. Unless you know what you are exactly looking for they disappear sometimes. The app is not appropriate to use in the field. (no email input) Stripe is cumbersome and not easy to process in the field. The quickbooks feature should be included. The desktop fee is way to expensive.

Pros: I like that on the app you can see the entire schedule easily as an administrator

Cons: All the technical issues and awful customer support who not only take 2-4 days to get back to you but provide not helpful responses and then wait two more days to respond back to you.

Overall: I've been using Kickserv for my business for the last month and a half and it has been a nightmare. I was told directly by one of the founders that the programming is old. The customer service is AWFUL. It takes days to get answers back from support. The time on our jobs keeps changing depending on what brower we are using. Information doesn't save when you update. The way that information and control panels are set up are very confusing and obviously outdated. When two days worth of jobs come through to my employees by email, the date is SO TINY compared to the job title that you can barely tell that it's two different days of scheduling AND the times are moved around back or forward by 3 hours!! It took fumbling around with several settings before I could hide pricing from my employees after I had clearly turned off pricing for each employee. That took several days to get a solution from customer support. Now, I'm trying to fix an issue with my quickbooks and sync the old invoices with a new quickbooks account and OMG we can't do that and we have to hand recreate EVERYTHING. What a waste of time and money.

Recommendations to other buyers: Save yourself the headaches of this out dated software and go directly for Jobber

The customer is correct. Her timing could not have been worse. It is very regrettable that this happened. We are very sorry for the frustrations and downtime. We were just completing our migration of hundreds of our long time and many original customers from our legacy system to our new platform and with it brought unforeseen issues. We have since corrected all those inherited problems. We have quadrupled our memory. Reconfigured the search feature, gave custom reports a boost in processing power, and last but not least gave our Quickbooks sync its own set of processors too. All this enhanced our computing resources and brought us back to delivering 99.99% uptime and very good refresh speeds. We take our customers' data and our performance very seriously and will continue to look for ways to stay ahead.

Comments: I have been using kickserv for a few years now and about a year ago I synced my kickserv account with quickbooks online. When I did that it deleted a ton of my line items and I had to go back by hand and enter them all back in. It took me about 40 hours to do it. I also had to fix it all in quickbooks, I paid a service for that. I have now hired an accountaint and they found that my quickbooks account is still messed up. I have now started a new quickbooks account and was told by kickserv that this was the only way I could sync kickserv and quickbooks. So I hit sync and lost all of my payments and they have been working on getting them back for 3 weeks. not sure what I am going to do.

Pros: Clean and easy to use

Cons: Lost my data

Pros: drag and drop capabilities

Cons: Since switching over to the new platform, there are issues with billing and attaching. Customer support is not helpful

Overall: Our experience with this software was average until the migration from SSK to Kickserv.

1) Our migration was scheduled for the evening of 2/2/17 but instead was run during the morning.
2) This resulted in us not being able to access our entire database for the entire workday. We lost customers and business as a result.
3) The only response we have gotten from Kickserv is "Sorry about the confusion".
4) Responses to issues about the new platform are not helpful and delayed.
5) Cannot upload certain file-types as attachments (Old SSK allowed anything)
6) Editing estimates does not work correctly
7) There are problems with payment capturing in Kickserv. Kickserv seems to ignore some line items.
8) When asked how to permanently complete tasks for re-occurring jobs, the only response I got was "Let me see if I can explain how to do this one".
9) None of our questions or issues have been resolved.

The experience you had with the migration of your account was very unfortunate. Having your system not available during your working hours is a serious issue and we apologize for that error. We did work with your co-worker on the phone to handle the major issue which was mainly getting the sync working successfully again. To acknowledge some of your comments here we currently don't restrict file types. I have requested for your company to send us any file types that seem to not upload. Also, with the issues of editing estimates and capturing certain line items we are not aware of any issues and appreciate any specific feedback on these issues through the normal lines of support at any time. We will clarify with you on what occurred exactly with your earlier question via our support lines of how to complete tasks for re-occurring jobs. We very much appreciate your loyalty with us and hope we can make up for the disruption to your business as we move forward.

Pros: I like how easy it used to be to use. If I had to buy the new kickserv I would run away screaming

Cons: Terrible interface. Terrible tech support. Very slow. Incredibly convoluted. First you make a job with charges, then you have to "generate an Invoice" from that job, then you can enter a payment, then after entering that you can mark it paid, then after doing all of that you can mark the job complete. What a nightmare.

Customers are syncing to the wrong customers in Quickbooks, which has caused an accounting nightmare.

Overall: Service Sidekick was a great product, they now forced all of their customers to Kickserv. They did the changeover at 10am on a weekday when it was scheduled for 10pm. We were down all day and received no apology. The changeover broke several systems. It no longer syncs to quickbooks correctly. When a task is made for someone it no longer tells people who made it and the Kickserv team is basically AFK.

Recommendations to other buyers: Run away, they don't seem to care about their customers

As you mentioned, the upgrade process did not go as planned. Your upgrade was completed later than expected, due to an unforeseen issue with another account's upgrade. We're truly sorry this happened. After the upgrade, we discovered that you had recently changed your QuickBooks sales tax codes, which inadvertently left 97 of your 4997 customers without a proper sales tax code. We reset your sales tax code for those 97 records so that your taxes calculated properly. We worked with you extensively over phone and screen share until we resolved these and other issues to your satisfaction. It sounds like there are some things you don't like about the new interface. We would love to hear more about your concerns and also invite you to a free training session where we can discuss the changes in detail.

Pros: Able to change as needed, and easy to integrate with Quick Books. Easy to contact a real person in tech support.

Cons: Don't feel that the phone/tablet app is user friendly

Overall: We have been using the program for about a year, and it is for sure better than other programs that we have used in the past. ANd the ease of talking to a real person in tech support is WONDERFUL!
But there are still a few issues we have come across. One is that it only works properly on FireFox, and is the only program I use that actually works on that browser, so I have to have that on all the time just for Kickserv.
Next is that when there is an error, there is no clear explanation as to what the error is. The program seems to tell me that there is an error, but that's it. I literally worked for about a month with tech support because I could not sync any new customers between Kickserv and Quick Books. This made end of the year very frustrating. When it finally started working, I still don't know what was actually the problem.
The last issue I have, is that I can't make the phone/tablet app user friendly for my techs in the field. I need them to be able to adjust more things, change times, add/reschedule jobs etc, and they can't do it. I was hoping this would help so they didn't forget to tell me what needed to be done, but they can't do it from their tablet.

Recommendations to other buyers: I pretty much did in the first part. Make it easier to identify any errors and how to solve them. And allow more things to be done from the phone/tablet app.

I contacted Kickserv about this, but they were not able to offer that functionality at the time, nor offer a suitable work-around, so we had to go with another provider, which is actually based in Canada.

Pros: What I like most about the software is that it helps the company stay on the same page of what needs to be done. Being part of a lawn care company, there are vehicles and people all over the city and it helps to stay organized and be able to know what another person is doing. It really helps the secretaries also be able to schedule and keep everything organized and be able to add special notes to jobs so technicians know what exactly needs to be done if the customer isn't present at the job site.

Cons: Sometimes the product and the different features can be confusing to manipulate. Such as pricing features. It's something that is somewhat difficult to do but all in all the product is nice to use and pretty reliable.

Recommendations to other buyers: Remember that products aren't perfect and to put down the truth about what you like about this product and what you don't like. I am only a technician that goes to the job sites and use it limited time but people like secretaries who are on it all day give all the comments and suggestions you have to make this product better.

Pros: The price for this product is outstanding! For a similar product, you typically will pay 5x the price.

Cons: There are limiting aspects to this software with remote chances of changing according to customer service (due to the base coding). Reoccurring event/visits struggle when you wish to bill throughout various "job". One job = one bill in Kickserv, rather than having multiple billing periods for various reoccurring event/visits during the one job.

Recommendations to other buyers: Ensure billing matches your needs and that jobs don't fall between the cracks (when a technician doesn't mark their job complete).

I just have so many great things to say about this!

Comments: We've used Kickserv for about a year now, and are pleased with our experience. We run moving and relocation company, and have a lot of part-time workers. Our business model requires a lot from the software, and we've had to get creative to make some features fit for us, but all in all we've not found a better solution for a better price.

Some of the aspects that we appreciate include:

- Resource view - allows you to see all of your workers at a glance. This is our most crucial page, and it does what it needs to very, very well.
- API interaction allows us to push/pull information from management dashboards that are integrated with other business intelligence data streams.
- Everything is right at your fingertips - easily access jobs, estimates, customers, reports, marketing via the left-hand column. Need to search through it all? You can do that too. Very fast and easy to navigate.
- Full functionality on any device! I can manage my teams from even my phone's browser, anywhere. I can be on a call, processing a credit card, and logging charges and time-tracking all at once - on my mobile device, no less.
-Very customizeable. Change your marketing, your invoices, your estimates, your emails, user permissions, job fields, etc. etc. etc.
- Help is right there in the bottom corner of the screen, with an estimate of when someone will get back to you. I can't say enough about how professional everyone I've spoken with has been, and how personal the customer service is.

Some things we hope will continue to improve:

- The mobile app in our experience has not been as good as the web page - but you can just use the web version.
- Your workflow experience differs depending on where you start to enter your data, which is slightly confusing. Still, the process is flexible enough to allow you to schedule jobs however you prefer.
- It would be great if Kickserv had a JIRA-type bug tracker that allowed us to submit tickets and see their status, as well as provide attachments, updates and feedback.
- Interaction with third-party software, like Quickbooks or Google Calendar, could be improved.

With stellar customer service, and an ever growing feature list, give Kickserv a shot. Overall, its been a solid choice for managing teams in the field, with plenty of flexibility - even for us.

For dispatching it is very good.

Comments: I have been searching for a Field service software for at least a month. We are a small service based company using paper work orders that get signed out in the field and then are used for invoice creation when they make it to the office - we have paper everywhere! I needed to be able to sync with QuickBooks desktop, not spend a ton of money, and get rid of paper, Kickserv fit the bill. Their customer support is awesome! My emails get responses even at 12:30 in the morning. I just can't say enough about the great customer service. Their tech support has just been awesome, and their price point is great compared to other software I have investigated.

Regret Paying for the Full Year

Comments: We hoped this software would be relieve the stress of scheduling for our business. However, it has been the exact opposite. Initially when trying to sell us the product, we were told the features that we needed were already functioning or in the pipeline. We were told that there would be a follow up with that timeline. After I PAID $1,*** , that never happened. In fact, I was later told that a timeline was hard to provide as software development of certain things take time beacause of bugs. Which makes sense, however why not be HONEST when you were selling me on the program?

Secondly, support sucks. We have tried to talk to someone. None of the people we have talked to seem happy to help and act as if we are burdening them. In the last two days, we have left two messages and have not received a call back. When I messaged Josh Anderson asking him when we should expect a call. His reply was:

"I am sorry, I don't see a voicemail or message in the queue.
Did you log in to Kickserv and click the bottom right icon and send support a chat?"

If I wanted to chat, I already would have.

Some other cons:

Even in expanded view, when you click on an event on the calendar, it sometimes will move your appointment time for no reason.

The calendars don't line up (e.g. if you have given one tech 3 jobs), you have to search through the calendar to find out whos assigned to what.

When you click on a job to start time or stop time, it doesnt show the "PLAY" or "JOB COMPLETE" sign until like 15 mins later. Totally throws us off as we have to call clients to let them know team is on the way.

This is unacceptable. Biggest regret is paying for the whole year. Now I am stuck with a program that half works and have to deal with people that dont really seem to enjoy their job. BUMMER, however lesson learned. I would highly recommend trying this program first when before committing to any period of time longer than a month.

Kiran, we appreciate your feedback and regret the mix-up in communication. We take pride in putting our customers first, and are constantly working on ways to improve our customer experience. As you know by now, we responded to Brittany's call for support within 4 hours (after business hours on Thursday). Unfortunately, it seems you were not made aware of that response until late Friday. We welcome phone conversations, but we highly encourage using our in-app help system to submit support questions/tickets, as it is generally quicker and easier to track. Once we were able to talk over the phone that Saturday, I hope we were able to resolve all of your questions and concerns. Thank you for your continued business! Also, for anyone concerned about paying for a year of service up front, we do offer a monthly subscription. All our plans come with a free 14-day trial, complete with video tutorials. We even offer a 2-hour New User Boot-Camp with one-on-one instruction.

I feel like my business has been revolutionized since we began using Kickserv! Thank You!

Comments: I now have made my business mobile due to Kickserv, and my electricians out in the field are invoicing and posting payments via their ipads, which are directly linked to our office! All my techs can now see their daily schedules on their own calendar with all the customers information, via their ipads, which eliminates so much paperwork that we once had to give them each morning. We can change their schedules from the office, and everything is instantly changed on the ipads. As an owner, I am thrilled to see how many actual jobs are won and lost, along with the detailed sales reports I can run which were not available through my current Quickbooks. I have seen my sales increase due to this changeover, and I actually enjoy working again!! Thank you Kickserv, and especially thank you to all the friendly tech support guys (mainly Alex and Pete!) who are there for us whenever we need them.

To run my entire operation it costs under $100/month and that even includes the quickbooks online license. not only does it work amazingly, it's super simple to use, and even my guys who are technically challenged picked it up right away. I went from my trial at 1am to in the field by 9am. literally that easy, and no hiccups so far.

Comments: I am a small business owner with lofty aspirations. When we started our new brand, our Field Services Software was a HUGE priority. We have tried, tested, and purchased half a dozen of the other field services software applications listed on capterra. I became SO discouraged that when I came around to Kickserv I was looking for the software that, to be frank, sucked the least.
I have found THE BEST software and application available AT ANY PRICE (and theirs is nominal by comparison). Their Quickbooks integration, customer portals, and CRM rivals what three other programs were doing half as well. Kickserv is all I have been looking for and more. We needed a partner who would forge into the future with us to provide customer service to my Day 1 technician out in the field but possess the infrastructure to accommodate our ever-growing line of services and products as we take over the market and go national. I cannot say enough about them!!

Pros: The product is simple to use and meets my customer service and scheduling needs for the price of the cloud software but also allows me to customize things without major programming or fees to get somebody else to do it. I paid for the Boot Camp training and was very worth it just to get things setup and understand the software. It sync's reliably with QuickBooks which has been a problem in the past for our company with other cloud based Customer Service Programs. The vendor has been GREAT! They feel like my team as they always respond within minutes to hours of my questions or problems I do run in to. I just send them a quick email and they help. Also they are always interested in my recommendations and are also getting feed back frequently from me and making improvements to the software. One thing that is great is that they provide a portal to the customer so any changes I make to an estimate or schedule or notes can be seen by the customer (they only see notes you want them to see). They can be abreast with what is going on with their work order. They also can pay for their invoice right online as well which I love so my customers have more control over their payment needs. Also our Kickserv is linked to our website so anytime a customer wants to contact us it creates an OPPORTUNITY in Kickserv for us to follow up on and notifies us via email that we have an interest. I would and have recommended Kickserv to other businesses.

Cons: This product does not handle the purchasing side of things which I would love to see. It sounds like they are looking into expanding this software to handle tracking purchases. Right now I just use QuickBooks for this. I also don't like the HTML language which is required for the setup of the invoice, estimates and work orders templates. It is hard to work with being I am not a programmer. I have managed to figure things out on my own with their help site and calling them. Its not a major issue but something I think they can improve on more. Again the Kickserv Team has been very helpful in anything I try to do or questions I have.

Recommendations to other buyers: When looking for a Customer Service Software program I think you need to be considering any accounting/bookkeeping program you are currently using, sync needs with that program, and how it is being synced (Going from the cloud based software to QuickBooks or visa versa). This can really affect the integrity of the data. Also consider the monthly and yearly fees and contracts involved as well as the customer service availability and cost. These fees can really start racking up and lock you into a program that doesn't meet your needs or could even be over kill. I like Kickserv as they gave me a month free to try it out which gave me a chance to see if it met our needs. Also one should look at what communications needs they have from a Customer Service Software program. What level of detail, tracking, technician communication, customer communication, and marketing needs. Of course the more detail and greater needs you have usually the more you will pay for a program to do as such.

Comments: I own an Appliance Repair Business in the Sacramento Area, and we use this software for scheduling out our service calls and having the technicians manage the jobs out in the field. All i have to say is this software is awesome. We have gone through 3 other software providers in the past 5 years and just none of it compares to Kickserv. They have so many options as well as a client portal which has great features! Their tech support is on top of things and help you get your problems solved fast! Thank you!

Pros: Great features, awesome customer service, great price point, customer portal, great user interface, easy to use and understand, Quickbooks integrates seamlessly, live signature capture, also you can email an estimate over and the customer/client can view the estimate and sign online. (great feature for a mobile business or a business who has customers who would like to think on repairing or purchasing new)

Cons: Mobile app could use some work for iPhone & Android, but their mobile WEB interface is awesome and has so many great features.

Outstanding service

Comments: I've used service sidekick for a few years and LOVE it so, when my boss wanted me to nail down a program for our other company, this was my top choice. I am just beginning to see all of the new features added and can't wait to move forward with this software!
