FREMONT, CA: Foundation Software, developer of America's construction accounting software, has introduced a new feature exclusive to their Service Dispatch mobile application: SD Mobile Billings. Purposed to help technicians create and process invoices quickly by capturing customer payment information right from their mobile devices, the new feature also enables both parties to review as well as sign invoices on the spot.
"Payment details can now be entered directly into the app. This lets the customer review and approve the work at the time of completion, eliminating discrepancies down the road. And it's very easy to use," stated Mike Basil, vice president of operations at Foundation Software.
Elaborating on how SD Mobile Billings completes the billing process for technicians, Basil stated, "The app has always done a good job at tracking labor, materials, and completing the call, but it would stop at the billing part. Now, not only can service techs clock-in and clock-out, but they can bill directly and immediately from mobile devices."
When preparing a payment from a mobile device, SD Mobile Billings creates an invoice in the app, complete with a detailed line item as well as labor breakdown for the job. Once customers confirm their payment information by signing the invoice, both parties instantly receive a copy through email.
Even though SD Mobile Billings is expected to improve the billing process for all clients, Foundation noted these new features are especially helpful for service contractors who require quick-billing options directly from the field, such as those who work in the electrical, mechanical, or HVAC industries.
