Net Dispatcher or Jobber??

Hi All,

I have tried to look at this before and am going round in circles! I have looked at both Jobber and Net Dispatcher and am struggling to get my head round the practicalities of both.

Landscope currently service some 400 domestic customers on a fortnightly basis for grass cutting and anything else, we have a number of commercial customers that we offer the same service to which keeps the vans on soft landscaping / maintenance very busy through the season. in addition to this we carry out one off jobs like weeding, annual hedge cutting for customers, one off grass cuts and the likes.

What I am looking for is a way of removing the carbon copy invoice system that we put through the door of every customer on each visit, then one comes back to the office and gets manually inputted onto a spreadsheet. then we download the banking details onto a spreadsheet and with the cheques etc consolidate all this to make sure that we are receiving payment. Its a complete bugger! takes ages and I would like to automate this system.

What's best, who is running a similar setup and can advise?

HELP!!

    Hi - I'm currently trialing Jobber and I'd have thought it would be ideal for your situation.It sounds as if you might need to consider getting as many of your clients as possible to pay online after sending them out a single invoice at the end of each month?

    Once you have all the info ie email addresses, job details etc,just load it all into Jobber and then it will track who owes what and prompt you to invoice. It could be your stand alone invoice system if you wish,others like myself prefer to sync it with QuickBooks and use that software for invoicing instead.

    Jobber can also be used to schedule your work and track the progress of each job through the day if you wish.

    I'm not familiar with the other system you mention so can't comment on that.

    We use Jobber for roughly 110 domestics on a fortnightly cycle but I haven't been brave enough to sync it to QuickBooks for invoicing purposes.

    We use it for scheduling and it has all client details in as well as specifics and site plans if required for each job and to facilitate that each van is issued with its own iPad.

    I will eventually sync it to QB but I don't think it is flexible enough for our needs at the moment - i.e. Billing one off extras on a job.
