What is ServiceBridge?
ServiceBridge is a complete field service management solution designed to help companies manage their work orders, scheduling, billing, and more. By utilizing cloud technology, ServiceBridge users can send, receive, and edit job information in real time, thereby eliminating the need for paperwork and return visits.
How does ServiceBridge work?
Because ServiceBridge is a complete field service management solution, it assists all levels of a field service company. For many field companies, there are three job functions that require use of field service software.
- Field Worker. The employee who goes to the worksite and completes a job
- Customer Service Representative. An employee who works at the office and is in charge of taking customer orders, scheduling jobs, and dispatching field workers
- Administrator. Usually an owner or an office manager, this is someone who is in charge of running the business.
With ServiceBridge, all members of your organization can send, receive, and edit job data. This means field workers do not have to return to the office after completing a job, customer service representatives do not have to do double entry, and an administrator can access all his or her company data at any time.
The Two Parts of ServiceBridge
To assist field service companies, ServiceBridge is made up of a web version and a mobile version, which translates to an office version and a field version, respectively.
- The web version is accessed on a desktop and/or laptop computer, and is used for scheduling, dispatching, customer records, business reports, accounting, and more. Administrators and customer service representatives usually access the web version.
- The mobile version is accessed on a mobile device, and lists job descriptions, locations, and so forth. Field technicians usually use this function
Users, License, and Price
Any employee using ServiceBridge, whether on a mobile device or a computer, is a user. For every user in your organization, you will need to purchase a ServiceBridge license. Because ServiceBridge is a subscription-based service, customers pay for one license at a time, each of which is $50. However, if:
- You have 10 or more users, the cost of each license goes down to $45.00
- You have 25 or more users, the cost of each license goes down to $40.00
- You have 100 or more users, the cost of each license goes down to $35.00
What's more, customers can choose to purchase a year's subscription of ServiceBridge and save 10% on their total cost of licenses.
