Service Pro® FAQs
Have questions about our Service Pro® software? You’ve come to the right place. Check out our most frequently asked questions below.
Does Service Pro® run on iOS or Android devices?Yes. Service Pro runs natively and cross-platform on iOS, Android and Windows Mobile. Because it runs natively, it can also be run off-line.
How does Service Pro help my back office communicate with the field?Our visual field service scheduler is the best way to connect back-office schedulers and dispatchers with field technicians. When technicians update their job status, the back office has visibility into where they are and what jobs they’re working on without having to interrupt with a phone call. Dispatchers can see where the technicians are by locating data from their smart phone or from the GPS device in their vehicle.
Can Service Pro have recurring appointments?Yes. You have the option of making service contract recurring appointments as part of the contract. You can specify the frequency of the appointment and the system automatically generates a work order at that frequency.
What accounting systems does Service Pro work with?Service Pro partners with several accounting systems including NetSuite, Sage 100 ERP (formerly Sage ERP MAS 90), Vista by Viewpoint Construction Software and Quickbooks.
Can Service Pro help me monitor company vehicles?Yes. We currently work with several GPS, telematics, and fleet management partners including Trimble and TomTom.
