I have been using kickserv for a few years now and about a year ago I synced my kickserv account with quickbooks online. When I did that it deleted a ton of my line items and I had to go back by hand and enter them all back in. It took me about 40 hours to do it. I also had to fix it all in quickbooks, I paid a service for that.
I have now hired an accountaint and they found that my quickbooks account is still messed up. I have now started a new quickbooks account and was told by kickserv that this was the only way I could sync kickserv and quickbooks. So I hit sync and lost all of my payments and they have been working on getting them back for 3 weeks. not sure what I am going to do.

Pros

Clean and easy to use

Cons

Lost my data

What I like most about the software is that it helps the company stay on the same page of what needs to be done. Being part of a lawn care company, there are vehicles and people all over the city and it helps to stay organized and be able to know what another person is doing. It really helps the secretaries also be able to schedule and keep everything organized and be able to add special notes to jobs so technicians know what exactly needs to be done if the customer isn't present at the job site.

Likes Least

Sometimes the product and the different features can be confusing to manipulate. Such as pricing features. It's something that is somewhat difficult to do but all in all the product is nice to use and pretty reliable.

Recommendations

Remember that products aren't perfect and to put down the truth about what you like about this product and what you don't like. I am only a technician that goes to the job sites and use it limited time but people like secretaries who are on it all day give all the comments and suggestions you have to make this product better.

The price for this product is outstanding! For a similar product, you typically will pay 5x the price.

Likes Least

There are limiting aspects to this software with remote chances of changing according to customer service (due to the base coding). Reoccurring event/visits struggle when you wish to bill throughout various "job". One job = one bill in Kickserv, rather than having multiple billing periods for various reoccurring event/visits during the one job.

Recommendations

Ensure billing matches your needs and that jobs don't fall between the cracks (when a technician doesn't mark their job complete).

The product is simple to use and meets my customer service and scheduling needs for the price of the cloud software but also allows me to customize things without major programming or fees to get somebody else to do it. I paid for the Boot Camp training and was very worth it just to get things setup and understand the software. It sync's reliably with QuickBooks which has been a problem in the past for our company with other cloud based Customer Service Programs. The vendor has been GREAT! They feel like my team as they always respond within minutes to hours of my questions or problems I do run in to. I just send them a quick email and they help. Also they are always interested in my recommendations and are also getting feed back frequently from me and making improvements to the software. One thing that is great is that they provide a portal to the customer so any changes I make to an estimate or schedule or notes can be seen by the customer (they only see notes you want them to see). They can be abreast with what is going on with their work order. They also can pay for their invoice right online as well which I love so my customers have more control over their payment needs. Also our Kickserv is linked to our website so anytime a customer wants to contact us it creates an OPPORTUNITY in Kickserv for us to follow up on and notifies us via email that we have an interest. I would and have recommended Kickserv to other businesses.

Likes Least

This product does not handle the purchasing side of things which I would love to see. It sounds like they are looking into expanding this software to handle tracking purchases. Right now I just use QuickBooks for this. I also don't like the HTML language which is required for the setup of the invoice, estimates and work orders templates. It is hard to work with being I am not a programmer. I have managed to figure things out on my own with their help site and calling them. Its not a major issue but something I think they can improve on more. Again the Kickserv Team has been very helpful in anything I try to do or questions I have.

Recommendations

When looking for a Customer Service Software program I think you need to be considering any accounting/bookkeeping program you are currently using, sync needs with that program, and how it is being synced (Going from the cloud based software to QuickBooks or visa versa). This can really affect the integrity of the data. Also consider the monthly and yearly fees and contracts involved as well as the customer service availability and cost. These fees can really start racking up and lock you into a program that doesn't meet your needs or could even be over kill. I like Kickserv as they gave me a month free to try it out which gave me a chance to see if it met our needs. Also one should look at what communications needs they have from a Customer Service Software program. What level of detail, tracking, technician communication, customer communication, and marketing needs. Of course the more detail and greater needs you have usually the more you will pay for a program to do as such.

Pick out your most important requirements and make sure the software does that well. In my experience, no software is going to offer 100% of everything you want/need but some do certain things much better than others.

It was really easy to use. I was able to take my business from 3 employees up to 15 before I started feeling any pain.
The estimates were customization with HTML. We were able to add some very cool code that would add offer banners depending on what was in the estimate.
It tracks every time your customer opens your estimates. Great for know who to call.
The software works well with quickbooks online. The work flow is logical.

Likes Least

It was week on CRM functions like phone and email integration. The mobile app never worked for us but to be fair our account may have outgrown the design.

There was no ability to group several jobs in to a project. This hurts when trying to find sale conversion rates because we often wrote several optional estimate to win 1 project.

Not having enough features to take my business for 20 to 50 employees. I would still be using it if they had developed a few more features or integrated tightly with a office CRM.

Kickservs has a really nice integration with QBO at the invoices level but none at the prospect or estimate level. If KS's contacts and estimates would of synced and mirrored QBO I Would of found a CRM to layer over KS to get the features I needed.

Recommendations

For a 2 to 5 truck contracting business this is a no brainer. Just sign up and give it a go for a month or two. The cost is really set right for the amount of feature it has and works well.

More efficient work flow management from estimate to invoice.

Pros

It's easy to use and it looks very professional to customers when they view estimates, invoices, etc. The customer portal was a great selling feature for customers with multiple properties.

Cons

Frequent server downtime causes costly and frustrating downtime for office/field staff. Customer service isn't the most responsive, and one request took 4 months to get an answer. Custom templates sound like a great feature, but they don't respond very well within the program and are difficult to create. Mobile app is buggy and practically unusable.

It has helped me keep track of customers but painfully so. The only reason I have not switched is because I do not have the time to learn a new program. If all of my complaints are resolved before I have the time to implement a new program I will stay; however, service has yet to make me someone who will recommend people or be loyal to this program.

Pros

I like the price point, I like that there is relatively little down time. And I like some of the features the software has

Cons

There are several complaints that I have had from day one. First the reporting is terrible, building a report is often a trial and error endeavor. Even after successfully building a report there are time that it just breaks. Seeing the "Ah, Nuts we'll ninja the heck out of that error" leaves me with nightmares. There are simple reports that should come standard that every business should use. Other than the reports, I find that the software was built to fit many businesses which make sense; however, it makes it harder for my specific business to work with a higher functionality. I cant attach cars to work orders instead I have to print it out and highlight it for my guys. There are other issues like this.

Internet based being able to get it on my phone when out of office. I use my tablet and phone from home and this is very important to me.

Cons

I get frustrated with the frequent slow load times lateley. I know that is being worked on and I apprecaite that because it is crippling when we cannot get to the information when speaking with a customer. I ALSO WOULD LOVE IT IF YOU COULD HAVE A PHOTO ON THE CUSTOMER PAGE THAT PULLS UP IN THE FIRST CLICK OF THE ACCOUNT. SMALL PHOTO LIKE WHAT IS IN NOTES BUT IN THE MAIN VIEW. DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS POSSIBLE. JUST A SUGGESTION

it is the best we've used so far. But can be improved. The tweaks look to be minor to make it a much better product.

Pros

I like the ability to link photos to the jobs. Seeing where all the jobs are on a map is nice. Being able to send a nice invoice to the customers and track it has been great
Also, the link to stripe for the customer has also been very helpful.

Cons

The places the jobs and invoices goes needs to be cleaned up. Unless you know what you are exactly looking for they disappear sometimes. The app is not appropriate to use in the field. (no email input) Stripe is cumbersome and not easy to process in the field. The quickbooks feature should be included. The desktop fee is way to expensive.

I'm able to manage my customers accounts.

Pros

What stood out to me the most was I was able to notify my customers with a text message upon my arrival.

Cons

No way to send broadcast emails. If they were able to integrate and autoresponder and I way to broadcast emails this will be the perfect program for any business.

Pros

It is easy to use, especially online and its very functional for us to see read emails, reports, along with history.

Cons

The APP has always been very poor and its so hard to use, we've never been able to use it the past 2-3 years because of how poor it is.

I've been using Kickserv for my business for the last month and a half and it has been a nightmare. I was told directly by one of the founders that the programming is old. The customer service is AWFUL. It takes days to get answers back from support. The time on our jobs keeps changing depending on what brower we are using. Information doesn't save when you update. The way that information and control panels are set up are very confusing and obviously outdated. When two days worth of jobs come through to my employees by email, the date is SO TINY compared to the job title that you can barely tell that it's two different days of scheduling AND the times are moved around back or forward by 3 hours!! It took fumbling around with several settings before I could hide pricing from my employees after I had clearly turned off pricing for each employee. That took several days to get a solution from customer support. Now, I'm trying to fix an issue with my quickbooks and sync the old invoices with a new quickbooks account and OMG we can't do that and we have to hand recreate EVERYTHING. What a waste of time and money.

Pros

I like that on the app you can see the entire schedule easily as an administrator

Cons

All the technical issues and awful customer support who not only take 2-4 days to get back to you but provide not helpful responses and then wait two more days to respond back to you.

Advice to Others

Save yourself the headaches of this out dated software and go directly for Jobber
