Great customer support when I got stuck utilizing this software, they helped me out while I was on 14 day trial license, and even after that their monthly plan starts at just 29 a month providing tons of features and support.

Cons

They still can improve at customer support and quality assurance by providing consistent software as this one crashes frequent.

I have recommended this system to a friend of mine who needed a simple scheduling software and a way to keep track of construction based limited touch business.

Pros

This system is very user friendly right off the box. It is easy to schedule and input data as well. It is very helpful in allowing you to view your schedule on multiple devices at any time you need to check it.

Cons

I feel like it lacked in depth tools no tear sheets no followup scheduling. It was very simple which worked but you could say it had a limited reach.

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

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.

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.

Kickserve works great for small businesses who are managing schedules for a variety of people! We are a garage door company and we use Kickserve to schedule where and when our technicians need to go.

We are able to create estimates and work through an ongoing job without it effecting our bookkeeping within Quickbooks Online. Kickserv has allowed us to track our time records in records within the job record, but then only enter one final labor charge within the invoice itself. We are able to keep greater detailed notes about the piece of equipment without them being accessible to the customer.

Pros

Synchronization with Quickbooks Online.
Basic functions are easy to use.
Adaptable to your companies needs with custom fields and reports.
Directions/maps are integrated into each customer location for quickly planning your days journey.

Cons

You are unable to print report/search results from Kickserv, you are required to export to CSV format.
It does not contain an inventory feature within the software.

It has been almost 1 ½ years since we last heard from your company. I collaborated with Rene and Dylan at your shop. With approximately 1,000 companies using the Quickbooks and Xero sync, we are experts at resolving sync issues. We are never satisfied until our customers are successfully using all the features of our product. We have made some major steps in enhancing our program. I encourage you to sign-up for a new trial and ask for me personally. I¿ll assist you with integrating your Quickbooks and resolving any customer-flow-line questions.

Hello Diana,
We are sorry that Kickserv did not work out for your office. As most field service businesses have a common "customer-flow-line" there still can be a significant paradigm shift for any organization when implementing a new enterprise wide tool. We would encourage any business curious how Kickserv could improve their productivity and profits to request a phone consultation. We were once the largest family run plumbing service organization in the nation. We love talking about field service.

sync to quickbooks online

Pros

calendar scheduling, sync quickbooks online, customer database, being able to see on the smartphone, being able to have iCalendar to add to the phone's calendar

Cons

the item can't move up and down, for example, when you are doing the invoice, if you want to put a new item, you have to remove all other iteam and start all over

Hello Darren,
You have a been a very loyal customer for almost 8 years! Thank you.

Good news! The feature to organize your invoice or estimate's list of charges is at the top of our list. I should not be to long.

We can keep track of all the customers/estimates/invoices.

Pros

The software is easy to use. It tells you whether a customer saw or not the invoice/estimate. It allows you to see unpaid invoices.

Cons

-quick book sync doesn't work right, it makes duplicates of all the customers.
-you can not enter different job locations for the same customer, a new customer needs to be created every time there is a new job location

Hello Jessica,
Thank you for all the stars and confidence you put into using Kickserv for your business.

Creating a new service location for a property manager should be easy. Once you have the main property company in your database, it will just a matter of pressing the "new contact" button, filling in the new service address, and checking the box to associate it with the parent company.

I'll reach out to you via our in-app chat to assist you with this feature and help with the customer-flow-line.

Pros

It's simplicity and easy to use. Allows you to keep a lot of information for each customer. Especially like be able to search for a contact not only by name but also by house address or phone number.

Cons

Whenever you want to eliminate tags of one sort or another the software will eliminate those tags in existing completed jobs. Why can't the old tags stay in place when we no longer have use for them and want to change or eliminate?

We are happy that Kickserv is assisting your business be more successful.
We do have on the workbench some ideas to make the tagging feature more useful such as creating an active vs inactive element to tags.
Thank you for your feedback.

Pros

The calendar has been easy to use. We do not use it for our installers at this time but use it daily for our sales appointments. For the most part kickserv has been user friendly.

Cons

There are times when we have issues syncing with QuickBooks. It seems this happens when we have one customer with multiple locations. We created our own invoice and estimate template. It would be helpful if this was easier to do and we did not need an HTML guru or it would be helpful if kickserv was more helpful with this. Reports can be confusing to create to pull the information needed. The reports probably took us the longest to figure out how to use. When uploading pictures it is very slow for the sales people when using their ipad in the field.

Hello Debbie,
We really appreciate your time and the feedback you and your team have provided us.

You should always use our chat feature in the program whenever you have a sync issue that you are not able to resolve.
We do have plans to make both reporting and possible custom template modifications easier.

From an admin position this product has been very easy to set up and use. Most of all we have been able to customize to fit our needs. Our clients often remark on how simple and easy to read our estimates are. We have it synced with Quickbooks to track payments.

Cons

Other than the server issue a few months back we have not had any real complaints. Tech support usually responds within a few minutes or contacting them.

The times that we have lag issues really make it hard to some days almost impossible to run our business. Customer support is great, but sometimes when we point out problems they are not always addressed right away.
