Title: Does anyone know of any field service mobile app low cost for appliance Repair?
Post by: Tony Hobbs on December 20, 2018, 11:11:23 PM
I've tried InvoiceASAP and the others seem way to expensive for me. I have limited budget. I saw one at www.serviceprog.com  that seems to do everything very reasonable. Has anyone used it? Or know anything about it?

Do you have any employees? I use almost all free products, but it's just me. I use Google Keep to keep track of all the minutia. I use several labels, the ones I use the most are Call List, Message Left, Scheduled and Parts Ordered. I also have a Limbo label where notes usually go to die. I also have To-do label but rarely use it, those notes usually end up on my call list. You could have an Invoice label but I use my calendar to remind me to invoice.  I use Google Calendar for scheduling. Even though Keep and Calendar are both Google products, they don't integrate well. I use a free app called Business Calendar as a go-between. When I'm ready to schedule, I'll send the note to Business Calendar which updates my Google calendar almost instantly. I use desktop Quickbooks to keep track of invoicing, it is not free. There is a free option called Waveapps which I haven't used. It is completely free, the only cost is from an optional added payroll service and the 2.9% + .30 transaction fee if you use them to accept credit card payments. The only reason I haven't used them is my wife uses Quickbooks at her work and I would lose her help with bookkeeping and taxes if I switched.

Wow! That is confusing.  :embarassed: Intuit has a program but I don't want to pay $100 plus a month to track customers, schedule, map and billing Invoiceasap is ok for billing but doesn't have model number serial number and parts lookup by model number. I am not the best at organization, I need something to keep me in line just one dropped bill can be expensive. I am going to checkout Serviceprog for awhile and see how it works.
Thank you

It's probably the way I explained it, it actually works really well for me. Keep is like Evernote or Microsoft Onenote with less features.

I tried mpengo Service call and liked it but my customers preferred a paper receipt and it was too much trouble to carry a portable printer(and remember to charge it) so I went back to paper. Did my inventory,tax rate and even labor rates and more like notes and such.It was Free. Ran it on my ipad.

I tried Mpengo too, but I didn't like it. It was fine for after a call was scheduled but that's not where I needed the help. I needed to keep track of my communications; voicemails, emails and texts. I still give hand written paper receipts but that makes more work for me back at the office. I working out of a Sprinter now, I going to set up a laptop and printer powered with an inverter.

I know this is an old thread, but I've been very happy with InvoiceNinja.

It's actually free if the free version is enough for you, but it's still really cheap even if you go with the "more expensive" versions.

Just got MPENGO and am very happy with it. Would pay more to get a few more features but not going to fuss about a $20.00 software. You can add the scheduling part for not much more.
