Pros: Great support. Willing to work through any problem. Pricing is excellent. Support is always right there. Software is very intuitive. Piggy back's with our accounting software and technicians in the field extremely well.

Cons: There have been some speed issues that we are fighting to get through. They have been very easy to work with in trying to solve the problem. They have made every effort. However the issue still has not been buttoned down.

Great program, excellent customer service

Pros: How easy it is to navigate through the work orders and customers. I like that you can post multiple invoices at one time if needed, or even skip multiple invoices at one time, simply by checking a box and then posting the first. I like that it connects so easily with our QuickBooks program.

Cons: I wish it would automatically reset a customer's price information for the following month. We have to change the amount of rooms serviced each month in various hotels. Our previous program would set the amount of rooms back to the base amount of rooms, but this program leaves it at the amount you post each month, so the following month it will show the amount of rooms and price from the previous month. Sometimes our customers get confused.

Overall: Linking it to our accounting program allows us to not have to log in customer information twice. Our old program we had to create a customer in the pest control program and then use that information to create them again in our accounting program. I like that we can post the work order and it automatically shows up in our QuickBooks.

Been a long time user and on my second version. Great program for small to mid-size businesses.

Pros: It's a great value and does so much of what other more expensive and complicated softwares do plus even more in some cases. Service System is so user friendly and very easy to learn as well as teach to new employees as the company grows. We highly recommend it to anyone who asks.

Cons: The support at My Service Depot for SmartService is great. The biggest complication and downfall, which is a big one, is that you can never get support except during standard working business hours Monday through Friday during the day. Being a small company, you can't afford to spend the time down and on the phone with tech support and failing to answer your phones for paying customers looking for service when you are in the trades like plumbing.

Overall: Very easy to learn, and provides all the functions I need running a mid-sized Plumbing Service Company, and is very easy to teach as the staff grows.

Mobile to office efficiency!!

Pros: I love that I can see in real time what's going on in the field with my techs.
I also like it ability to seamlessly sync with Quickbooks to avoid double entry.

Cons: Wish it had a feature to mass text clients to remind them of their service scheduled.
It also runs slow and lags quite often.

The process to move one of our data base to another QB company went well.

Pros: The service scheduling with ifleet for our technicians. It gives the tech an overview of his work for the day. The completion of their work the next morning is also a great and straightforward process into QB.

Cons: The only con was when going through the migration to another data base with several calls I talked to more than one tech. As all are versed in their knowledge of the product they do have different approaches. I would recommend when something like a migration takes place the same tech is available through the entire thing.

Work in this product daily.

Pros: Easy to read visually. Searching by name & address is easy to do & setting up new customers are easier.

Cons: Inability to easily change customers name once it has been set-up. This is a huge drawback. Reporting needs to be more user friendly

Overall: I was not on the implementation team so I'm not sure what benefits they received.

As with anything there are pros and cons, but the pros out weigh the cons by far.

Pros: I like the ease of scheduling and tracking where my driver is. I also like the fact that my driver can take a picture for future reference when needed. Especially if we are waiting to do a repair at a later date and need to know which part is needed when we return.

Cons: I wish in the instruction section you could use bold and highlights when you want to make sure something stands out. I would like to be able to schedule a repeating phone call, for example, We have customers that we have repeating jobs every month but need to call the day before to remind them to put up animals or leave a gate unlocked. I would like for the reverse route the schedule when needed.

Overall: That it links to QuickBooks is a big plus.

So easy and extremely useful!

Pros: We love the fact that it is simple to use and holds a lot of our customers information. Searching for customers is what we use on a daily basis anytime our phone rings.

Cons: We really don't have much of anything to complain about. sometimes there are glitches but nothing major.

Overall: All the of the necessary information is printed out on the daily workorders as needed. Again, this program is very easy to use as well as teach to new employees.

The software is easy to use and maintain.

Pros: Being paperless! Real-time! Helping us all get on the same page, (despite those who do things they're own way!) Use of IFleet!

Cons: Still more complicated, than necessary, in that some things are not clearly defined as to how to go about getting things set-up as needed, with-out customer support. Does not have all the aspects needed to get the reports we need, such as demographics.

Overall: No more paper! Real-time, helps free up more time. IFleet, nice!

Easy to use, seamless communication with ifleet, absolutely love it!

Cons: Suggestion would be that I would love an option to send email follow ups directly from the service with customer satisfaction surveys with results that would link to jobs and customers!

Overall: Ease of scheduling, fast syncing for technicians, easy access customer records, ability to opperate paperless.

Cons: When you get up there in customers, like 10,000 plus, its a hog so you need a fast computer and network.

Comments: This is a great program, they could fix a few things, but other than that I have been satisfied.

Pros: Scheduling is easy and organized.

Cons: They don't tell you when it has been updated and their mapping system does not allow you to "optimize" more than 100 jobs at a time. My techs tell when their system is acting up and then I have to contact them to find out why and usually it is due to an update.

Cons: I can't really give you an honest opinion on this, as it was not set up properly or being used that way when I started here.

Overall: Customer support is amazing! Always available and very helpful!! I have never had to wait long to get the help that I needed.

Comments: If you have existing software and want to use this as an interface don't do it, it may work fine on standalone but not integration. They will tell you it will work and then when it doesn't they will try and have you change your ways to make it work. Once you realize it's not going to work it will be too late to get your money back then you will not hear from them again.

Pros: Associates were nice.

Cons: Would not work as expected and they didn't care .

Recommendations to other buyers: Be very careful making this decision, I spent several years looking and spent almost a year before purchasing this system and it was a complete failure. It may work fine if you are starting from scratch but not when doing the integration .

Overall: We evaluated all the software in the market for document shredding companies and narrowed it down to Smart Service. It enables us to easily track our customer's jobs, our assets, and our drivers throughout the day. iFleet revolutionized our business when it came out. We figure it saves us about 10 hours a week.

Recommendations to other buyers: Check it out. If you're looking at dropping $10-$20k on a software package to run your business, Smart Service may be able to accomplish the same things at a fraction of the cost.

Pros: I've been using Smart Service and iFleet for nearly 4 years and I really couldn't imaging operating our service company without it. I've seen quite a few changes and feature upgrades throughout over the years which shows that the product has great support. When ever I have questions, they are answered right away. The only "complaint" I have if I had to make one would be that I would like to see the front facing camera be fixed within the iFleet app. I have been requesting this to be fix for the entire time that we have been using this product but it seems to go unnoticed. It must be a simple fix as every other camera app on iOS seems to work as intended. The pictures come in reversed which make reading numbers and words impossible. We use the front camera to take picture of product tags that are hard to reach. It would also be nice if the pictures were tagged with the job name and number so that we can easily locate and identify it. Thanks for a great product and all the support that goes into it. Looking forward to using this product for many years to come.

Pros: scheduling and real time info to the guys

Cons: issues with Quickbooks and the transfer of info, does not always come threw correct

Overall: overall a good experience. there are many times it takes hours to get a call back for support, this some time takes us totally of line and then we are back to handwritten tickets, adding obviously more work in the office

Recommendations to other buyers: customer service to be more reactive. Everybody we deal with is great, just sometimes it takes way too long to get a call back

Comments: Although the system is a little complicated and not very user friendly costumer service is always there to help with any kind of questions or issues. I love that they jump on your screen and show you exactly how something is to be done. Overall the software is great and I am sure it has way more features than what our company uses, which hopefully we will come to master as time goes.

Pros: That is provides precise information for my technicians.

Overall: We have been using smart service and ifleet for two years now and could not be happier. They are both very easy to get started and very easy to use. We have had no trouble integrating it with our technicians. No more double data entry into QuickBooks. I would highly recommend this software for any small to medium service type business. We do HVAC in Colorado Springs and I can see how this would work for many different types of companies.

Pros: User Friendly; broad functionality in scheduling for tri-State area

Cons: Cannot to job times in timeframe needed-- our technicians work at night -- we can't show job times past 11:55pm

Overall: I have used Smart Service for 4 years now and it is a terrific software. It is very user friendly and easily navigated. We service 3 states - California / Arizona / Nevada - and our technicians have handsets that are in the field. Their feedback is that they like the software and ease of I-pad use when sending the documentation. The only downside is that I do not have enough time to navigate and learn and use all of its functionality. I am not using SmartService to its fullest capacity -- every day I learn a new function that I didn't realize existed. SmartService can fit all of your scheduling needs as it can be set up and programmed to suit your company's particular needs.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take the time needed to learn to the fullest extent all of the features and functionality of this software

Overall: We have been using Smart Service for the last few years in our HVAC business and it is a game changer.

Comments: We thought this was what we had been looking for. They system is not very user friendly. It must me stored on a computer making working from home not possible. The service center NEVER answers their phone. They always all you back that day but it's maddening when you need to figure something out that you have to leave a message. However, if you call sales they pick up right away. It's an ok service but I would look elsewhere. For a few grand more you could have a custom system built.

Pros: It does store pictures and routes the jobs, however, many times it can't find the house so that is just omitted from the route.

Cons: Can be very slow, especially syncing. Integration with maps would be better with Google maps verse apple maps. Customer service is the biggest con

Recommendations to other buyers: Be careful, the sales guys tell you it does anything you ask and there is NO trial period. I think because if people tried it and saw the limitations they wouldn't buy it.

We compared SmartService to even software that was specifically designed for my business (document shredding) and even though SmartService is more generic, it had all the features and benefits we were looking for at a fraction of the cost. Their support people have always been very helpful. We will continue to use SmartService and iFleet in our operation.

Pros: Customizable reports, works with QuickBooks, Marketing Tracking, Scheduling

Cons: Speed, although it is a bit faster than the old version was.

Overall: SmartService offers many features we need in a software program lumped into one and it communicates with Quickbooks. It's a database of your customers and jobs that offers a scheduling and dispatching board, field employee/job time tracking, reports that are customizable, Invoice/payment entry that flows to Quickbooks, and more. Many other software programs only offer some of the features of SmartService, and still others that offer similar features are extremely overpriced. Been happily using SmartService since 2004.

Pros: The integration with QuickBooks - Eliminates double entry.

Cons: The inability to handle larger customers - ability to see previous work within those customers is not functional. Forms created in the program are not very good

Overall: We purchased the software over a year ago. The product only functions with Quick Books. As we grew the software presented some challenges for us. If you have multiple locations and Jobs under one customer the software slows way down when working/scheduling anything to do with that larger customer. We experienced a lot of errors when adding new jobs/or locations. The help desk worked hard to fix the issues, and for the most part they did. It still very slow when working in our largest customer. For dispatching is it great - the I fleet portion is user friendly for the guys in the field. The finished forms are not great I would like the option to create your own without an extra charge or edit the ones they have. Yes we are happy with the product, but there are some glitches that need to be addressed. 1. Notifying customers when updates are available - via email with needed password. 2. Forms - ability to edit them. 3. size restricting issues. 4. use without QuickBooks for scheduling.

Of course like very new program that you are not used to I have encountered some challenges, but costumer service has been beyond helpful!

There are customizable fields built in that allow us to tailor the program to our needs. If we cannot find what we want, their amazing customer support staff is always available to find a solution.

Comments: Smart Service has a great customer support team, they are always extremely helpful. We find the system to be a bit complicated and "touchy". For instance, if you need to change appointment notes - it doesn't automatically update on iFleet side. And our technician entered an amount on a form as "1." instead of "1.0" and that messed up our iFleet and SmartService communication (way too touchy!) There are so many functions to learn. Overall it works, but learning how to correctly operate this system is quite the task....

Overall: Smart Service is a good program. Not much for hiding things from your invoices. We purchased it and when through the data conversion. It was a pain, As everything new. It is a good software but it is based around their mobile tech software which does not work for us because of the attention to detail we require on our invoices.

As we realized, it was not ready for windows 10, They promised to do refund, and they did all they could to not to honor our agreement. They suddenly become nasty and unreachable. We had to go through the credit card dispute to get refund. They managed to keep 2K for their useless mobile application.

Overall: Good value for the dollar, somewhat user friendly, but does not always work with QuickBooks, but neither do the other programs, and you need to be a computer programmer to use the other programs. good for scheduling, not to user friendly on the mobile side with items.

Pros: The scheduling page that shows the number of trucks and color activated during time stamps

Cons: Not flexible for our industry, we keep hoping it will be more appealing to other options, but no luck after many years with the company.

Overall: There are certain fields in the moving industry that do not line up with other services. The mapper system seems to be extremely slow and locks up the computer at times when we attempt to use it. Some of the auto populated fields can not be turned off, so our secretaries are having to do double work to get the results we need. We are unable to add items in the field that carry over to smart service that will translate equally into quick books, so again the secretaries are having to go back and double work. At this time this is the program we use, but are in the process of looking at other programs that may be more flexible and less work for the office personal. We have spoken with our sales person and tech support on the issues noted above the I-fleet app that works with smart service the workers are consistantly telling us how slow the app is to respond!

Recommendations to other buyers: The mapping system is useless or at least it has been for us. It locks the computer up the normal pop up location when we open it is a foreign country, NOT GOOD , and items put into I-fleets in the field can not translate to quick books unless it is done through smart service, it double work....JUST LIKE THE INDUSTRY QUESTION BELOW -MOVING INDUSTRY IS NOT AN OPTION---NOT GOOD

Pros: The layout and client fields and custom features

Cons: syncing can be an issue not being able.
That when re activating job it does not have a easy close option that does not re send invoice to QB and or it fills ifleet with all the past jobs

Overall: We do enjoys the layout the seamless communication to be able to share from office to field tech. The information does not always sync up.. Causing issues slowing things down in the field. However there are some great features. Would like to be notified when updates are available done. Maybe via email that would be great. Would also be great if a update video to share the following new update features are now available. As is i called in other day with issue found I was five versions behind that there had been so many updates done that I was missing out on when you think I should have been made aware of this via email. Been dealing with so many glitches and set backs that could have been avoid. Disappoints now updated there are way more things to see I'm not even sure how that all work yet can you email me a break down of the newer features and how to... I also think that the fees to add an additional work stations seems high.... Thank you WRP Office

Recommendations to other buyers: Updates should be sent via email with feature videos

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Micro soft access crashes a lot.

Overall: After years of researching dispatching systems. I finally decided to go with Smart Service and so glad I did. Very easy to use. Love the Tech Support system. They are very knowledgeable and friendly. There is always a learning curve with a new system. But they were always willing to help me with my issues. Once I learned the system, I am so glad I choose Smart Service! The only thing we have problems with is the 8:30 open time. Our techs get on the road at 8:00 and when the server is down and the I pads can't sync for whatever reason. The guys can't get there jobs on tablet and get their day started.

Pros: the scheduler, the ability to post multiple invoices at a time, the ease of adding a new customer

Cons: if I have to change the price on a regular customer service for one service that is the price that remains for the next months service. A previous program we used would automatically reset the price back to it's basic price for the following month when it was a recurring customer.

Overall: I have used Smart Service for the last 9 years. The customer support is excellent. They are very knowledgeable and are quick to get back to you if they are not available right away. The updates that you receive are good about fixing any program issues that may arise and they are always adding new things to help the program stay current with the times. I have even asked for certain aspects to be included in the past and they worked to make that happen for me. It's a great program and a great company. I highly recommend Smart Service.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not hesitate to call customer support if you ever have any issues. They are quick to help and have always solved our problems.

Smart Service for a smarter more efficient business. Manager's paradise.

Pros: Ifleet with the ability to sync pictures and notes back to home base. Tons of features, options, etc.

Cons: SLOW

Overall: We use SmartService and Ifleet. It has dramatically cut back on our paperwork. Aside from that it has given us tools to ensure that the technicians out in the field are estimating the work appropriately. It's a very large and diverse program with lots of features/functions that we haven't even tapped into just yet. It's a little heavy and slow but it packs a punch.

Pros: the ease of being to track my guys

Cons: when your server is down , Not getting an email telling us that. So, we dont spend alot of time trying to figure out what is going on. Thinking it is on our end

Overall: Their is some small function that I would like to see changes on
1: the customer signature box is to small for older customers
2: have to have your team do updates, it doesnt come up and tell us it is time for an update
3: some of the items do not roll into quickbooks right all the time does some time
4: does not seem to take change in customer address or name, I have to start another customer

Pros: I like that it's easy to use and the techs can add notes to it while out in the field.

Cons: I dislike that it is very slow. It takes a long time to go through each call and switch from screen to screen.

Overall: Smart Service is a pretty good software product, but its slow when maneuvering through it. It has great information and we utilize a good majority of its uses. It just takes a while to go from screen to screen.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you utilize every aspect of the software, to get the most out of it. It can do many things for you if you input the information correctly.

Pros: The ease of entering customers, service tickets, time keeping and the GPS tracking are great benefits of this system. For the most part our technicians have been easily trained on the process and it has cut down on a lot of their processing time in the field.

Cons: We have used the "Get Customer" or "Sync Customer" functions many times and since some of our office employees enter data directly into QuickBooks, we've lost a lot of email address and contact information on our customers. This information is critical to our database and it's very frustrating to try to rebuild.
We have several labor descriptions for our business and the work tickets can be set up correctly for the type of labor on a service call, the information transfers to the invoice in QB correctly, but defaults to ONE labor description on the time cards. So I end up having to revise nearly ever time card entry to correct the labor code. Also have to change the service or installation name from the sales rep's name to the actual technician that did the work. This has made the payroll processing a lot more time consuming than it used to be when it was entered directly through the time card entry in QB.

Overall: We have been using Smart Service with the IFleet portion for our technicians in the field for about 4 years now. Overall it is a very good system.

Recommendations to other buyers: We have suggested and even requested a couple of enhancements through customer service. Some of them have been used and some are just too custom to our line of business for a change to be made on the part of Smart Service. The customer support is very helpful when we do have an issue they respond quickly and are very knowledgeable about the system.

Pros: Being able to schedule the field guys is fantastic. I can look at the screen and immediately know if I have a worker available or not. If a person takes the time to learn it the scheduler can be your new best friend. Some of the men really LOVE that they can take photos of the job site, the work, parts that need to be replaced and it stays with that job forever. I love that too. It is very handy.

Cons: Since Smart Service makes a new, unique job in Quick Books every single time you make a job, it makes more sense to have QB in single user mode all the time so a job can be deleted if necessary but my employer uses QB in his office to do his bids and the invoicing so it can be a pain in the neck. There is no way to tell Smart Service to print ONE work order if the jobs are assigned to the department and to the person (indicates who is doing the job) it automatically spits out one for the office that I don't need, one for the job, and one for the human. Once a person's name is entered as a customer there is no way to change it. It is wrong forever. Once it is used in QB it can only be made inactive not deleted. It might be a Quick Books interface problem which is not really Smart Service's problem but if Quick Books runs into a problem and has to close (but they always apologize for the inconvenience ;) ) then I have to close Smart Service, re open QB, start Smart Service, wait for it to go through it's acrobatics (gathering data) before I can use it.

Overall: My employer was quite hopeful that Smart Service would be the answer to our scheduling & invoicing headaches as he invested a great deal of money into the software, the iPads, man hours, time away from our regular business days to learn the system, etc. The idea of the system is really good. The implementation in daily business is not so good as it takes real dedication and compliance on everyone's part. He had to rework the inventory on Quick Books so items would be easier for the field guys to find, invent ways to charge mileage as we live in a rural area and Wyoming is huge, rework the labor hours so the men knew how to charge a customer in the field. With all the work we both put into it, the extra training I requested from My Service Depot, you would think that it would run smoothly. Smart Service is only as good as the people's efforts entering the data from a job. If they forget something it can cost the company a lot of money. Since we started Smart Service we have returned to paper as it can be tracked. Having a paper trail is very useful. My employer has returned to invoicing duties as he will know if the men forgot something on the invoice and won't have to eat the cost any more.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be cautious about what Smart Service "can" do for you as some of their cool sounding features are add ons to the basic program. With the correct and willing compliance and field workers that care about whether their employer makes money or not, this could be a God-send to some companies. It is just the same as any other computer program. GIGO Garbage In, Garbage Out. The ONE field guy who admits he is computer illiterate was the leader in using the iPads and Smart Service, the photographs, he immediately saw the possibilities and became our Champion.

Pros: It's easy to work with, easily adjustable to what I want to see, the new copy function is a huge time saver. iFleet is a tremendous aid for increasing productivity and reducing the amount of paperwork with our service techs.

Cons: The wait time when it's communicating with QB. I get "not responding" and it slows me down.

Overall: Smart Service listens to their customers and updates the software accordingly. Tech support is easy to work with and are very knowledgeable about their product.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking to increase productivity, efficiency, and reduce paperwork then this software is for you. The technical support is the best I have come across when dealing with software. I would highly recommend this product.
