We use KickServ for nearly every aspect of our operation and cannot think of a scenario when it is "inappropriate" or "less appropriate". It is the backbone of our operation and is used for everything from data gathering to estimates to invoices to payments and accounts receivables to reports to tracking to storage of photos and past invoices. Better searching abilities would be good instead of having to create tags for things we don't know we are going to need later.

Service Fusion is a fantastic application for any business conducting fieldwork. Any instance in which you need to schedule and route agents for services (ie onsite repair services, contractors, construction, project management firms). Additionally, it could be applied to field sales representatives. As Service Fusion does have a CRM function, a structured sales organization could apply the features to track and follow up on lead generation and/or sales visits!
Read full review Pros Organization - keeps everything organized nicely and has several different filters that you can use to view only the information you need. Simple website - this was important because you want it to load quickly when you are in the office and on the road. Database - keeps track of the things that you enter. This is nice when trying to get information on a product or a price when requested by the customer. Read full review GPS Integration for routing agents/technicians to job sites. Reporting, especially post-ticket completion. Customer Management - containing all pertinent files and information for a given customer.

It's perfect for our company. We rely on it. Tech support is great. We're very happy.

It is intuitive enough, but there is some training that will be necessary because of a perceived redundancy within their workflow. It can be hard to distinguish which stage a customer is in (thus what the most important thing to be working on, if you are in sales, for instance) without some training.

Very good technical help. The team is well-versed in their product and what to look for, particularly when interacting with other software platforms. You nearly always get a live person when you call, and if you don't, they will return your call promptly. This is another factor in my client's decision to move forward with their solution.

Read full review Return on Investment We are essentially paper free. No paper work orders. We've been able to avoid a layer of middle management by supplementing this layer with technology. KickServ is a part of that layer. Negatively speaking, like all technology, it has created a void of human level connection. Because we know that we can deliver work orders to our foremen remotely, we are less likely to drive up to the shop and shake a hand or see someone face to face. We had to learn that lesson the hard way, that both technology and human connection are necessary to maintain our culture. Read full review Postive ROI. Streamlined scheduling process for field service calls. Reporting has generated a traceable trail for long-term customers, to help better serve their needs. Read full review ScreenShots
