Let's get started!
The software offers plenty of useful features for Service Professionals: the personal business profile, task management, a calendar and reminders, accounting transactions tracking, communication with property managers, several online payment options, etc. These will help you to organize your business efficiently.
It also offers an onboarding process:
- - your landlord can send you the invitation to connect within the system.
- - you can create your ServicePro account on your own.
In the first scenario, please follow the link you have received in your mailbox, create an account, and click the "Get started" button. You successfully got connected with your landlord.
Please select your profession and specify one or more services you provide. Choose the "Other" option if you can't find your profession or service type.
After that click the "Next" button to complete the onboarding and start using the software.
If you have created an account on your own, on the first step you will be asked to select your profession and one or more services you can provide. Click "Next" to proceed further.
The next step gives you an opportunity to send the connection request to your landlord. Once the landlord is connected with you, you’ll be able to:
- receive maintenance requests;
- set up online payments and get paid online;
- communicate in the built-in messenger.
You can skip this by clicking the "I Will Do It Later" link or enter the landlord’s email and then click "Next" to move to the next step.
In the last step, you will be asked a question Would you like to set up a public Business profile? This scenario will allow you to create a free website to advertise your business. You can skip this and set it up later in your dashboard.
Otherwise, provide your Business contact information (first/last name, email, phone number, business address, etc.) and create a link to your own website.
Click the "Next" button to complete the onboarding and start using the software.
Finally, you can choose which subscription plan suits you best. A Free version is always an option. There are some great benefits with the Starter plan like Job Offers, Requests Board for managing your work orders in a more convenient way, Google Calendar Synchronizing, and some more.
Great news, your onboarding has been completed!
