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.

If all of your data is entered 100% correctly (per WorkWave PestPac standards) and you only need basic functionality, then WorkWave PestPac is great. The more functionality you need, the more they charge (EVERY module is an additional per-user cost, which can get very expensive very quickly). If you are bringing your data from another system, then be prepared to have heartburn (or hire someone to go through and fix all the data). If data is not 100% accurate, then many features don't work as smoothly as you'd like.

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.

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.
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.

It allows us to map and easily move appointments which makes our techs more efficient Having all documentation stored digitally and be locked to the correct account helps us stay compliant Read full review ScreenShots
