Part of scheduling well is ensuring that the right jobs go to the right technicians. With Freshdesk, you will be able to schedule all the appropriate tasks and jobs to the technicians best suited for them by skill set and availability.

Communicate with technicians

As important as it is to communicate with your customers, it's equally vital that you have the tools to communicate with the technicians doing the work in real-time. Freshdesk allows you to communicate with handymen on the field and share context with them about the job.

Manage customer communication

While the quality of service you provide to your customers will build much of your customer loyalty, leading with effective and professional communication can be a competitive advantage.

 Freshdesk’s handyman software incorporates omnichannel capabilities to enable 360-degree communication with customers. Built-in omnichannel support makes it easy for service teams and techs to communicate with customers through a channel of their choice. Some typical customer support channels that handyman businesses choose are:

  • Email

  • Phone

  • Livechat

  • Social media

You can see live feeds from each of these channels directly within Freshdesk, making them easy to manage and plan for through the day.

With Freshdesk’s handyman software, your workforce can quickly view and update the details about service tasks, such as problem description, location details, and the appointment date so that errors due to miscommunication are mitigated.

Create custom properties

Allow your managers to create custom fields for your task forms with Freshdesk. This gives you the flexibility to tailor fit customer requests into your service task and makes it easier for handymen to understand job requirements.

View customer history

Freshdesk allows you to see the historical context for any other repairs or services that you've worked on for a particular customer, so your handymen can bring the right equipment or tools necessary, based on previous service visits.

Handyman estimates and invoicing

You need to be able to provide a line-item invoice for your customers. Your invoices can often include information about parts, but most frequently, you also need to break down the number of hours that your handymen worked during the assignment.

Freshdesk's handyman estimating software can help keep track of the individual hours that each of your repairmen worked on each project. By integrating with Quickbooks, your team can also create estimates and invoices based on timesheet reports stored in Freshdesk
