Service Autopilot

For those of you using service autopilot:

Can you tell me what you like and don't like.

How far are you using it. Do you have devices in each truck they use for their daily lists?

What else?

We like it very much. Integrates well with Quickbooks.

The one thing that I do not like is that we cannot customize the work order / route sheets. I have been using Qxpress for years and have very detailed, customized route sheets.

best software for time tracking. it is unbeatable in that sense. it also allows you to automatically see how much you making per job/minute working. either by day or job site over time.

the bad. to track on a device it needs a data connection.
there is no real marketing section of the software.


they are putting out a release october 8
it is suppose to have maintenance tracking of equipment.

one of there next updates will be a app based time tracking/routing and not a data based one

Were you able to transfer your Qxpress data into Service Autopilot? I'm currently using Qxpress but just feel like it's losing advancement in the software field. Looking around but very nervous to switch and lose all my customer data.

Do you not do backups? I have my customer data in more than one place for this very reason.

Yes, I back everything up, but the last time I switched software my old customer data could not be imported into my new software, therefore, I lost 7 years worth of customer history. I still had it in a different location but I want it in only one location so I'm not switching back and forth.

That would be a nice update to have an app based routing system. It would save from having the data connection in each truck.

What else guys? Do you feel like the time it saves is worth the 140 bucks a month?

there not saying when the phone app will be out.
hopefully soon but who knows.

it does save you time when invoicing, it totals up the whole month automatically, as well as weekly invoices on Saturday night it also adds what they did not pay yet.

i love there system for charging the credit cards. i send invoices on sunday every week, then charge the cards on tuseday. in my bank on thursday.

that alone is worth it for me. it really speeds up cash flow.

That is more than the pricing on their website states. Are you including a website too?
