How Electrician Invoicing Software Streamlines Your Invoicing Process

Good invoicing software allows you to automate many processes that previously took several hours per week. With a program like ServiceBox, you can quickly create work orders and invoices from your quotes. You can also improve your timekeeping process, replicate and edit past invoices, speed up the payment process, and manage each invoice's status.

From Quote to Work Order to Invoice

In the past, electricians had to spend a significant amount of time creating quotes, work orders, and invoices. Each of these documents had to be created separately because it comes in a different format. Good invoicing software eliminates the need for this complex process because it automatically generates work orders and invoices from quotes.When your customer accepts your quote, you can create a work order with the click of a button. This gets sent to your employees, who can then perform the necessary service. They can make notes and amend the work order to reflect the number of hours they've worked. Once they're done, the work order automatically gets converted to an invoice for your customer. You can include your workers' notes and signatures to increase transparency and clarity.

Accurate Timekeeping

Have you ever struggled to verify the number of hours your employees worked? Have you had complaints or questions from customers about the extent of the work completed? If so, you'll benefit greatly from electrician software. ServiceBox has a built-in feature that allows your employees to track the time they spend at each customer's home or business.That way, you can easily prove how much work was completed. Additionally, the program comes with GPS tracking, so you can see where your employees are throughout the day. This helps you to avoid mistakes, create accurate invoices, and give your customers an exact breakdown of the time your staff has spent on their projects.

Save and Replicate Past Invoices

Although some jobs are unique or complex, many others are routine. Consistent and transparent billing is a big part of providing a professional service. That's why ServiceBox allows you to save and replicate past invoices. If you're not sure what you charged your customer the last time, you can simply check their previous invoices.The duplication feature helps you to save time because you don't have to start from scratch each time. Every invoice is fully customizable, so you can change the customer's personal details, the price, and the elements listed. You can also decide whether you'd like to send your customer a simple invoice or include an accurate price breakdown.

Manage Invoice Status

In the beginning, you might find tracking the status of all your invoices easy. However, this becomes more complicated as you build up a larger customer base and hire other people to work for you. Not having a transparent system makes it tough for you to manage the financial aspect of your company and increases the chance of errors.When you get ServiceBox, you no longer have to worry about the status of each invoice because it's managed automatically. You'll receive an alert if one of your customers hasn't paid on time. ServiceBox also prompts you to send your customers regular reminders, so they are more likely to pay promptly.

Getting Paid More Quickly and Conveniently

Good electrician software helps you to take payment in various ways. If your customers would like to pay right away, you can provide your employees with hand-point devices that allow them to take payment in person. We partner with PayRoc, a company that offers advantageous rates. Unless your customers pay with American Express, you'll always pay 2.75% plus 25 cents, so you don't have to worry about variable credit card charges.Another convenient feature is the email invoice. Each message contains a link. When your customers click on it, they are taken directly to a payment page, so they don't have to log into their bank accounts to transfer the money to you. This increases the likelihood of a fast payment and therefore improves your cash flow.
