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.

Using ServiceM8 has been the best move for our small family owned and operated business. It's user friendly and streamlines all aspects, such as scheduling jobs, drafting quotes, sending invoices, staff annual leave etc. Is also very easy to integrate with Xero. Highly recommend.

Just for Apple

Best app I've tried so far, but after I saw that it's only for Apple. I thought it was absurd, am I going to force my employees to have an Apple? It doesn't make any sense.

Response from ServiceM8

Hey there Ana. We understand that not having an Android app is unusual and can seem like a showstopper, but our focus on iPhone/iPad is actually one of the major reasons ServiceM8 is a market leader, such a powerful solution for our customers, and like you said, the “best app i’ve tried so far”. We explain our reasons in full (and dispel the myths) in our video at: If you or some of your team don’t have an iPhone, we have a great initiative to help you save thousands and upgrade your business with brand new iPhones at the same time. You can check out all the details here:
