How Accolent ERP for Service Companies Can Help Your Business
Accolent ERP Software for Services companies ties together your sales, service delivery, and accounting needs into one simple Cloud-based solution that can be used in the field. It has the friendliness of tablet-compatible quoting software and the power of a fully integrated business management solution. Here’s how the quote-to-billing cycle, consisting of Quoting > Sales > Service > Purchasing > Billing > Accounting > Reporting, works for a typical customer-site services provider:
- Use a tablet or laptop to create a job quote at the customer’s home or business
- Add freehand descriptions of the proposed services and optionally add inventory items
- Estimate time and materials
- Depending on your business processes, the quote may be reviewed with main office first or directly shared with customer
- Print the quote at customer’s site or email it to your customer
- Collect your customer’s approval signature on your tablet
Up-Selling and Change Orders
- Anytime during the sales process, suggest add-on services or products, adjusting the quote as needed
- For any items supplied from your inventory, the system automatically checks availability and reports when it is time to re-order
- At time of service delivery, track progress and keep extensive internal notes that are always available to service team members and head office directly from the job quote record
- Update the Internal Notes with details of an unexpected problem that can be commented on by the main office
- Update the record to reflect unexpected delays that can be seen by the service dispatch
- Create change orders directly from a tablet or laptop, to reflect any revisions to the job scope
- Change orders can be billed separately or added to the original quote
- Enter additional time or correct actual quantities of inventory products that may be different than quoted
Re-Stocking (Can Be Automated)

- Optionally manage inventory items carried on each truck, and replenish using warehouse transfers
- Create a customer invoice automatically upon completion of the job directly from the customer site
