Frequently Asked Questions

I have no computer skills, is this for me?

Yes.  This automated scheduling software was originally designed for an operator who had no computer  or typing skills.  If you can get on to the internet you have  the basic skills needed  to operate our system.

Can I stop this service at any time?

Yes, Simply email or fax us your request to cancel your subscription to our automated scheduling software and you will be immediately made inactive and we will stop charging your account. All of your files will be kept for 6 months from date of cancellation and then deleted.

I work alone and have no employees. Is there good value in this automated scheduling software system for me?

Absolutely. We have a single technician who has been using this system since 2005 and now finds it indispensable. He has chosen to operate totally mobile and can do 80% of his administration work on his lap top in his truck. Since his major clients can log into the system, he no longer wastes valuable time resending reports.

Will this system do all my paperwork?

No. This system will not take the place of your accounting system, will not control inventory and will not do payroll. It will do all your paperwork from the taking of a service request to the creating of the invoice. It can even keep track of your customer's payment history.

If I have stopped the service can I start back up again?

Yes. We hold all files dormant for 6 months. If you request installation within 6 months of stopping service we can reinstate your service. A $50 reactivation fee along with your monthly service fee will be charged on your first month's bill .

If my local internet provider is temporarily out of service can I still access my files and carry on business?
