In ServiceM8 4.0 we have simplified menu structures making it much easier to navigate and find what you’re looking for. In this video we cover the basics of what has changed from ServiceM8 3.0 to help you hit the ground running.
If you missed the event you can watch a recording of it here. We talked about the huge release of ServiceM8 4.0, a beautiful new design and simpler than ever.
And we launched a new platform for business to business communication, which we believe will change the way that businesses communicate and work together forever.
Both will be available on October 9.

When it comes to managing the finances, a lot of small businesses are using dated accounting software, a system of spreadsheets, or relying heavily on their bookkeeper.
Cloud accounting has well and truly arrived, and if you haven’t already, you should be looking into how this simple and easy-to-use technology can help you and your business.
Integrating your ServiceM8 setup with one of our supported cloud accounting solutions, like QuickBooks Online, further streamlines the management of your business, covering jobs from the moment they’re created all the way through to tax time, and providing great visibility across your operations.
So, what is cloud accounting? And why is it so great for small business?
People judge books by their covers, particularly in a business context, so don’t underestimate the power of professional conduct and presentation – it’s part of your brand, and it might sometimes be the only thing separating you from your competitors. Professional written and verbal communication, branded vehicles, company uniforms with logos, a motto that reflects what you stand for, business email addresses, a good website (and great service!) all form part of a professional business image.
Cashflow is the lifeblood of every small business. Small business operators need to be paid as close to the completion of a job as possible.
Chasing unpaid invoices can end up costing more than a job is worth in labour. For many businesses, chasing payments is put off until cash is needed to pay bills or staff wages, as they are too snowed under with current work. Generally, the owner cries “How can we not have enough money? We’re so busy!”
One of the new features of ServiceM8 3.0 is the support of Apple Dynamic Type. What this means is when you increase the size of text for your Apple device the text size in ServiceM8 will increase too. Great if you’re having difficulty reading small or thin font without your glasses.
