Our Commitment to Contractor Value
ServiceChannel offers contractors top and bottom line value.
Being a connected contractor makes you a
lower total-cost contractor to do business
with, which leads to increased wallet share.
SC customers also reduce rogue spend
By badges and credentialing on
Fixxbook, and references from SC
clients, the number one source of new
contractors for our clients.
ServiceChannel makes it easier for
retailers and contractors to differentiate
based on credentials and real, measured
performance, not price.
By eliminating calls, faxes, inaccurate
orders, automating the process for order
management and invoicing, SC reduces
contractor operating costs.
By automating the order and invoicing
processes you eliminate (or reduce) errors –
which are costly in terms of labor and delays.
Contractors tell us their SC clients have fewer
disputes and long delays in payment
Eliminates the headaches and
unpredictability of invoice and
payment cycles; order and change
order processes.
