Ease of Payments
Usually for billing your workers must close out a job, bring the paperwork back to your office, and leave it to you to handle all bookkeeping, job costing, and requests for payment. Even after the bill has been mailed, there’s a wait for payment.
While automating your field service business, you can eliminate the wait time for payment, you can initiate the billing process much more quickly by automatically generating invoices once a job is completed. Also you can schedule reminder mail for payments. In some cases, this can shorten the billing cycle by as much as two weeks.
By automating the process, your field service business can better serve your customers. Less trips back to the office mean your workers can squeeze more jobs into a day, which means your customers will no longer be subjected to unexpected delays or long waits for the next available appointment.
