A good idea....maybe it should a PRO benefit though?
Since mid January we have been using Re-flow. They are focusing on green space industries and seem very helpful in assisting with software adjustments to suit our business. Very comprehensive software in most areas.
Canadian in origin but geared for the UK too. I've been a user for 7 years now.
I Know jobber has advanced a lot since I first tried it about seven years ago, but has it caught up with Service Autopilot yet?
Does it have auto pricing of estimates, two way texting, two way emailing, automations that we can build, measure grounds around property etc?
Adrian, this thread is probably not the place to start debating features, rather it will be just a directory - probably best to add your Post elsewhere, but I was in conversation with Service Autopilot a short while ago and received this response;
"Currently our system is not optimized for use in the U.K. I am very sorry about that.
I know we are hoping to expand our client base to be more international. Frankly, I don't think there is a plan on implementing the smart maps feature for the U.K. for the foreseeable future, however we are growing extremely fast and it is something that I would imagine will be implemented at some point down the road as we continue to grow and try to cater to those international members. I want to be as honest as possible with you because I don't want you to waste time trying to setup the software if certain aspects will not be functional for you.
Kindest regards, "
I think the key is Jobber is fit for purpose for UK along with its Support, something SAP acknowledge they struggle with (their words, not mine).
Many years ago we used to use Lawn Pro which is out of the US, apparently this has developed into a very good software and could be worth looking at. If you have less than 50 customer's it is free
There is another reason why SA probably don't want to come into the UK yet, and that SA has now partly owned by an American Credit Card company who only operate in the US, and SA now insist that all their US customers move over to the new credit card company via the SA software. Which means you can't use a UK card based system.
Because we only do recurring maintenance this has not proved to be a problem for us and we have devised another method of collections.
As they say, it is not optimised or recommended for use in the U.K. 🤷♂️ But glad to hear you've gone ahead ....
We have been using it for the last seven years. The chap who is the co owner Johnathan Potashnick is the person who signed me up. https://www.lawncaremillionaire.com/
