Likelihood to Recommend

Kickserv

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.

ServiceTitan

ServiceTitan is excellent for a medium-sized to large-sized company, but I would not recommend it for organizations with smaller field staff and customer base. ServiceTitan has a lot of strengths and is getting better in the areas that they lack. I will say that their customer service and account managers are improving, but at the beginning of the year, it was impossible to get answers to questions. ServiceTitan can easily become the lifeline of your organization because of how powerful that is. I can say that that is such a disaster when the site goes down, which doesn't happen often but does happen. It brings the entire business to a grinding halt. Additionally, their phone software still has a lot of room for growth and is where I am least satisfied as we consistently have calls dropping.

Pros

Kickserv

  • 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.

  • Track technician's sales and performance.
  • Good client database.
  • Campaign tracking and call recording tied to customers file.
  • Job history.
  • Equipment history.
  • Paperless invoices.
  • Integrations and API with other products.
  • Track technicians with GPS.

Cons

Kickserv

  • The templates that they have for invoices are not intuitive and need improvement/updating.
  • The way that multiple payments (down payment, then balance upon completion) are logged is NOT intuitive. We had to find a few workarounds to ensure the Quickbooks upload didn't mark the client as paid in full, even though they had only paid their down payment.

ServiceTitan

  • I only have one piece of advice per our managers. One of their biggest frustrations when it comes to logistics software is that it doesn't always speak well with other systems be it with an HRIS system or an LMS. As a training manager, I consider the LMS component huge. So really what we think would be an improvement would be an open source ideology that allows your platform to integrate with others easily.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Kickserv

It was pretty good. I think just the simplicity would make me choose this over something else that I have seen and used in the industry. I wish they would just address the issues noted.

ServiceTitan

We used ESC for over 20 years. When they released FieldEdge, we gave it a try, but it fell short from our expectations. The software had a slow loading time and was not reliable. They were features in FieldEdge that I wish ServiceTitan had for sure, but the overall reliability of ServiceTitan overshadowed.

Return on Investment

Kickserv

  • 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.

ServiceTitan

  • Significant increase in customers remembering their appointments thanks to our automated job notifications!
  • Tracking a job from the booking to dispatch to completion has never been easier for our team.
