Small deployments, where you have some specific need for ServiceMax and absolutely need offline capabilities, and are willing to deal with the problems. Otherwise, you may be better off looking at the built-in Work Orders and field service module that
is now providing. Their app is direct competition for ServiceMax and integrates much better with cases and knowledge articles.

LIES! LIES! LIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Service Titian caused us so much grief and our company thousand's of dollars. They promised us they work well with our Quickbooks program. LIES! The amount of hours we spent on the phone with them, they should be paying me! All the issues that came about, they didn't even know how to fix themselves. We had to wait days for them to come up with solutions and call us back. So many batch's we transferred over to Quickbooks the amounts were completely wrong, doubled our transactions, or put into the wrong place. As you can see with other reviews the managed tech's price is outrageous. As well as the time cards, we always had errors we had to fix with that as well. DO NOT USE SERVICE TITIAN, IT WILL MAKE YOUR JOB 1000X HARDER!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAY TOO COMPLICATED THEN IT NEEDS TO BE AND HALF THE EMPLOYEES DON'T KNOW HOW TO HELP YOU.
Read full review Pros As it's built on Salesforce, the reporting tools are fairly robust The service flow managers can be setup to easily lead technicians to entering data in the right place Read full review Real-time tracking. The biggest problem in logistics in, my opinion, is knowing if your products are arriving on time or not especially as it pertains to food, that was huge here. Most of our managers travel constantly from corporate to distribution because of how centralized the company is they needed something flexible that allowed them to run reports whenever and however. Ease of use - I'll be honest in that our employees are not the cream of the crop as it pertains to their education, this software made the learning process simple. Read full review Cons Dispatch console seems slow and the data is more of a pull than a push into the database. It seems to be a Ferrari and takes a lot of labor hours to configure. Still does not integrate with Apple's products very well. Read full review We'd like to be able to text estimates (currently, email is the only function) We'd like to have audit trails on Customer and Location records (currently only at the job level) We'd like to be able to email/text the customer multiple options within estimates, like the techs can do on their tablet, it's just not a function that can be presented by the office.

Engaged account management. Support is based worldwide but handoffs have not been too painful.

ServiceMax has an offline capability, and also integrates with our
side of business. At the time,
did not have a field service application so we could not consider it, but if we could now, we would probably go with that instead. ServiceMax is also expensive. But at the time, ServiceMax was the only offering out there that integrated with
, had mobile offline capability, and could operate at the scale we needed.

No comparisons. Everyone tries to emulate Service Titan. Service Titan has had the best support. Service Titan also seems like they have a better development team to build out their product and listen to client feedback. Where that's helpful is that they're constantly pushing the envelope of what's possible with enhancing client experience and streamlining operations for a business owner.
Read full review Return on Investment ROI for ServiceMax is mostly dependent on how in depth the organization wants the software. Our ROI is expected within the second year of operation due to the complexity of integration and the initial training requirements for in-house programmers. Inventory control ROI is expected within year three or four due to the number of technicians and creating the foundation of information to import into ServiceMax. Expectations are the front end programming will be complete and our programmers will be better acquainted with the modules and architecture to make the inventory integration smoother than the initial integration. Our organization has been working with ServiceMax for ten months and beginning to incorporate the financials to the work orders. This process has not been as seamless as once projected and the root causes are under investigation. It appears the original fields available to track time between employees were not in depth nor segregated sufficiently for granularity. Read full review We can more effectively retain customers and send them offers if it's been a while since their last visit. Our cash flow has dramatically improved because now the technicians invoice everything. We can get estimates out the door within the hour, not days later. Read full review ScreenShots
