Service contractors need comprehensive, powerful accounting that’s integrated with their dispatch and customer files to provide informed, excellent service that can help you build your business better.
Can your accounting software handle the complexities of tracking regular maintenance calls for your customers and billing for one off or emergency calls? What about managing costs for inventory you hold, or tracking warranty data for installed equipment?
Explorer Shafers is an alternative to QuickBooks that was designed for HVAC and other service businesses. It’s everything your service business needs in a single platform. Instead of bolting on an accounting program to your dispatch board, Shafers is one system to run your entire business.
It can be complicated maintaining separate systems for job dispatch, customer details, and accounts receivable. For a lot of HVAC contractors and other service businesses, it’s simpler to add all the job details to the customer file so you can easily track service calls, equipment used, warranties, and the status of invoices and maintenance contracts using a single platform.
