ServiceM8 is a smart job management app which empowers trades & service business owners to run a better business & improve their lifestyle.

It’s cloud-based software for trade contractors & service businesses like plumbers, electricians, locksmiths & cleaners — any kind of business that manages jobs & staff in the field, ranging in size from sole operators up to 20 staff.

ServiceM8 streamlines the front-end job management, from a client’s first call through to scheduling, customer communication, quoting, job documentation, invoicing & payment. From there, it integrates with Xero to form an end-to-end field service package.

powerful tradie tool

Subscribed to serviceM8 a years ago and have not looked back! We are a small business and it has streamlined all our processes effortlessly. Our tradies have more control over their projects and spend less time on paperwork and more time on the job! Its a very powerful tool and I highly recommend it to anyone needing to keep track of their jobs. The help support team are fantastic and always open to new ideas and solutions.

Thank you ServiceM8

As the owner of a small Building, Pool & Pest Inspection company, finding the right software was crucial, and ServiceM8 has proven to be perfect for my industry. I owe a significant part of my business's success to ServiceM8. I am not sitting in the office each day, ServiceM8 allows me to run our business in any environment on any device professionally, efficiently and effectively. Communication is streamlined through the platform, with emails and texts tied to specific job numbers, I have all correspondence at my fingertips (game changer) Templates are life changing – I have saved so much time, each and every email / text is accurate & professional – take your time to set this up – get support – best money you will spend I've reached out for assistance many times with quick response each time – you are given your own IT human – mine is next level smart – I only deal with her and I’m not going around in circles with a call-centre I must brag about my IT support – I simply put my ideas of what I would like ServiceM8 to do for me –she has blown my mind each time ServiceM8 has revolutionized how I run my business. Thank you

Seemless communication

My life has changed now that 75% of my office work is done automatically between Service M8 and Xero. Even if I do something twice they both know and don’t have to worry about mistakes. My apprentice can even collect payments and send the invoice straight into Xero. So very happy to have more free time…Cheers!
