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.

Great app for small business

We've used ServiceM8 for about a year now. It has been instrumental in helping us grow from a team of 3 to to a team of 10. Easy to use, extremely helpful service team!

the instrument to my success

ServiceM8 has revolutionized how I run my business. As the owner of a small appliance repair and property maintenance company, finding the right software was crucial, and ServiceM8 has proven to be perfect for my industry, as well as any field service business. I've experimented with other options like Fergus and Tradify, but none compare to the power and capabilities that ServiceM8 offers. I owe a significant part of my business's success to ServiceM8. It levels the playing field for individuals like me who haven't formally studied business or gained experience running one. The intuitive interface and comprehensive features make it possible for anyone to manage their operations efficiently and effectively. The pricing is reasonable, and the support is unparalleled. I've reached out for assistance late at night and still received immediate responses from real humans. In one instance, I had trouble with an invoice template, and the live chat support not only diagnosed the issue but also fixed the code for me, ensuring it worked flawlessly. The mobile app is a game-changer, allowing me to take photos on-site, make phone calls, and seamlessly convert them into jobs with just one click. Communication is streamlined through the platform, with emails and texts tied to specific job numbers, making follow-ups effortless. While it may take some time to set up ServiceM8 for optimal efficiency, the investment is undoubtedly worth it. Additionally, they offer external IT advisors for those who prefer assistance, though I found the setup process relatively straightforward to do myself. In conclusion, I highly recommend ServiceM8 to any tradesperson looking to venture out on their own. With a free trial period available, there's truly nothing to lose, and everything to gain in terms of efficiency and business success.
