ServiceM8 is a cloud-based field service management solution with landscaping business management capabilities which enables service businesses to schedule, deploy and manage all their field activities from a single solution.

ServiceM8 enables users to schedule field staff automatically based on their availability and required skillset. Once a job is scheduled, the solution automatically routes the staff to the site. The crew can then view their routes from any location using the mobile application.  

Once the service request is completed, the crew can take and upload pictures directly from the mobile application. Users can also capture customers' signatures digitally using the app. The field crew can accept on-site payments using different payment modes such as credit cards, debit cards and online payments.

ServiceM8 also offers integration with popular accounting solutions such as QuickBooks Online, Xero and MYOB, which enables users to directly upload payment data into the accounting solution and generate financial reports on accounts payable, receivables and general ledger.

Poor Customer Service

Pros

Great product. Some great features and helps create a good impression with our customers
The scheduling of jobs is good, being able to track employees and their clocking in, travel etc easy for timesheets.

Cons

Latest update 7.0.1 is volatile, a few of our colleagues have experienced problems with it and have raised an urgent ticket but the customer support and feedback from them is very very poor.

Easy Yet Powerful Job Management Software

After 5 years on another software program, I spent 6 months wanting to find a more advanced program that will take my business to the next level. I overlooked servicem8 at first thinking it was a bit simple, but after a terrible experience with another program, I went over to servicem8 and found all of the supposed advanced features I had been searching for where there, and what's more they were much simpler to use. If you're in a service based business, doesn't matter your field, you should check out this program.

Pros

It is extremely easy to use by both office and field staff.
It has many powerful additional features
Nothing about this software is complicated and yet it is as powerful as most other programs on the market.

Cons

Other than a few very minor changes that is not worth listing, I honestly cant think of any cons.

Works well for contruction companies

Pros

The ability to deploy tasks and bobs to your agents on the field. One of our customers uses this as a field management tool and it works beautifully.

Cons

The mobile app drastically reduces battery life on the phone and requires constant power which can be a disadvantage if you are away from your vehicle or use a lower grade mobile phone.

Small Service Business Gold

I have ServiceM8 open right now, and do most days. This is simply the best deal for the money. Period.

Pros

I've tried multiple platforms for my small handyman/remodeling company. ServiceM8 is by far the best value for the money. Easy to use, Easy to setup and it integrates with QuickBooks. I use it every day and could not imagine keeping up with clients, contractors and jobs without it.

Cons

Only con -- it only works on Mac/IOs platforms. I completely understand why they've made this decision, but it is limiting. It's also feature-lite, if you need something beefy this may not be for you, but for a small business that only needs the basics, it's without equal.

ServiceM8 is job management system of choice given its functionality and value for money.

Pros

It is not a difficult system to setup and ease of use enables clients to pick up the system quickly. We love that integrates with XERO and ServiceM8 staff are supportive and always willing to help.
It has a selection of add-ons, syncs well and found it to be reliable. Clients enjoy using it.

Cons

I understand reasoning of building to one platform but ashame it only works with Apple products as we have clients with andriod devices. I would also like to see it integrated with more online payment providers.

Seems like a decent product, only supports iOS therefore useless to us

Pros

ServiceM8 is very reasonably priced and has a good feature list with a nice clean, user-friendly UI.

Cons

With hybrid apps that now rival native apps, I cannot believe there is still no support for Android devices. How is it that almost every other platform can support both? Why would you thumb your nose at literally 50% of the smartphone/tablet market!?

Very easy to use job management software. Easy to pick up on the fly and get new staff up to speed.

The ability to streamline a small business with this software ensure that small business that implement Servicem8 will see an uptick in productivity and also regain time they previously spent on managing their business using paper/older systems.

Pros

It provides small/medium size business an affordable job management solution. The software is constantly evolving and new features are being added and expanded upon. For people who are after an easy to use quoting, invoicing and job management software, it's hard to look past Servicem8.

Cons

Some of the features such as badges are a bit basic and feel like they could be fleshed out more. I've no doubt this will happen over time though.
iOS only for the phone apps leaves the android market out in the cold. Would love to see the software expand onto the android platform as well.

Extremely smooth implementation.

It saves us a tremendous amount of administrative time, virtually eliminates the paper in the paperwork, keeps admin in the loop with what is going on at the job site in real time, and allows us to keep track of our service techs' whereabouts.

Pros

Intuitive but very powerful but when you do need help their support team is ready and able. There are so many options it is best to just click on everything.

Cons

So far, I can't think of anything. With all the free add-ons, this software does everything that we want it to do.

Great product for people working in the field!

Pros

This software has allowed quick turnaround times and the ability to give efficient and timely services to those customers in need. The invoice tool with ServiceM8 has been a great help as well.

Cons

Android users are out of look, so this should be updated somehow - the software would definitely get more users if it could apply to both iPhone and Android users.

Saves us lots of time and stress

Pros

Being able to keep track of your workers in the filed and get constant updates on their job status eliminates a lot of unnecessary phone calls. Love the fact it is cloud based. Being able to customize quotes and invoices is great.

Cons

Still not able to create shortcuts, which would save lots of time. Not available for android, which is what has stopped friends of mine from diving into this.

We use this software for maintenance at the studio

This platform helped me to plan and keep control of any maintenance works at the office.

Pros

It's a great tool to schedule and manage any maintenance works that need to be done in a small business, also to keep control of safety issues and instructions accordingly.

Cons

They could improve the current platform to operate for big businesses as well, like factories, big buildings, entertainment venues etc.

The ServiceM8 support team, are really prompt with their responses.

An organized structure to the information utilized.

Pros

It has an incredibly easy user interface. It is a great piece of programming with a simple layout, that compliments the user experience.

Cons

Like all programs, the other applications you have running, may cause conflict. That cannot be avoided though.

With so many customers ServiceM8 ensures my company is always professional and technology superior.

Pros

When customers call me I can answer them by name. This is such a powerful tool and it builds customer loyalty through the roof, as they are just amazed that I remember them. Customers miss this personal contact that other companies fail so bad on. Taking credit card payment on your phone is a close 2nd but IOS contact hits the home run.

Cons

Can't create short cuts. I have a lot of repeat business and wish I could just click one button to create a new job that replicates everything from the old job. I could then adjust pricing and book it in for the next service. At the moment there are too many key strokes and you need to be careful not to forget anything. Please look into this as I'm sure I can't be the only one out there who would love this to happen.

easy to use

Ease of job schedule and proper monitoring of clients' records & communication.

Pros

The software environment, the layout and appearance, fast transition of pages and I appreciate your customer service too.

Cons

Some other functionality - as some can be very limited like when I wanted to have a calendar schedule for our internal team - I still have to use Job#s.

The most versatile and customisable scheduling software

Love this software, and the help desk is very helpful. There is a great library of help information too.

Pros

The forms add in with the ability to create forms that generate PDFs that attach to individual jobs - perfect for SWMS / pre-start checklists and other compliance documents. Very fast and responsive. The app is great and invoicing is a lot more versatile than with other systems since you are able to set up templates for emails, SMSs, invoice/ payment claims, quotes - anything can be customised.

Cons

Slightly clunky client input system, that allows only two contacts to be visible on any given job. It also inverts the name of clients rather than just storing it the way you entered it into the system. So John Smith will be stored as Smith, John. This is problematic with company names, but it's not a big deal in the end because you can go in and change it back, it's just a little inconvenient.

Only good for a small company of 1-10 employees

Pros

Nice UX/UI on website and app
Quick and responsive
Their iOS app comes in handy for GPS tracking and forms submission.

Cons

Unreliable customer support, they actually never respond, and when they do they are clueless.
Don't count on integrations, 90% of what I've tried didn't work properly or didn't work at all.
Don't count on partners

I love this product. I am a daily user and use it for all of my online invoicing for my business.

A real time-saver and great for monitoring all invoice statuses -

Pros

My favorite feature is the way you can send via email, a past due notice for your invoices and how easy it is to customize all email templates. Customize your quotes, estimates, invoices, past due invoices, and schedule the past due invoice notice date

Cons

Only that you can only schedule one follow-up past due invoice. I would like to send past due notices every 15, 30, 45 days and send demand for payment emails at 60 and 90 days and then a notice for collections notice at 112 days stating past due account goes into collection at 120 days - Then it is out of our hands -
