Jobber was developed for professionals in field service industries, including those with landscaping, residential cleaning, commercial cleaning, pest control, electrical contracting, alarm installation, painting, plumbing, and renovation businesses. Although most Jobber users are small businesses (SMBs), the solution can also work for medium-size field service businesses, as well.
Within the businesses that use Jobber, professionals in all different areas can take advantage of the features the platform provides. For example, front office administrators may find the scheduling and calendar tools useful, back-office accountants may find the estimating and invoicing features useful, and offsite field workers may find the route optimization features useful.Read the full GetApp Analysis

It wasn’t long ago that field service professionals were completely cut off from their in-office support teams. Schedules, client information, and maps had to be printed out at the beginning of each day, and last-minute changes were incredibly difficult to make. Now, mobile technology is making it easier for field service professionals to run more productive and profitable businesses. Jobber is an example of a scheduling, invoicing, and productivity platform designed specifically for field services.
Plumbers, landscapers, electricians, and anyone else who works offsite on a regular basis can use Jobber to streamline operations and reduce technical inefficiencies. The company’s mobile platform includes features for job scheduling, invoicing, client tracking, and time tracking, all of which are valuable for professionals who spend the majority of their time working outside the traditional office.
Jobber gives field service professionals real-time access to their customers’ information, regardless of whether they’re sitting at desktop computers or using mobile devices on the road. Jobber supports both scheduled and unscheduled workflows, along with one-off and recurring contract capabilities.
By integrating a billing system with its scheduling and routing platform, Jobber has been able to decrease the number of clicks the average professional makes when sending estimates or invoices to customers. Automated invoices can be sent as soon as a job is complete, while recurring invoices are distributed at regular intervals to customers on subscription billing plans. All payment details, including check numbers and notes, are kept in a centralized location, which makes it easier for managers to keep tabs on their business data with detailed financial reports.
In-app scheduling tools allow both in-office and offsite employees to track the progress of daily schedules and make changes on the fly. Job scheduling can be made on a one-time or recurring basis. (For example, a landscaper may see Client A every Monday, while he may see Client B just once a season.) Schedulers can assign one or more employees to each job, knowing that Jobber won’t allow for double-bookings or over-assignments.
Use the drag-and-drop scheduling grid to assign your own workforce as clients call in for service. You can check each team member’s schedule to see who is available at a specific day and time. Jobber also gives you the flexibility to schedule jobs without assigning a particular employee until a later date. The system allows for real-time updates and changes, which means your field service professionals can be re-routed and their schedules adjusted if a client cancels at the last minute.
By integrating an invoicing and billing module into its field service management platform, Jobber has decreased the work involved in sending bills to customers. The solution offers a follow-up feature that ensures invoices never slip through the cracks, along with recurring billing options for companies that see certain customers on a regular basis.
Set up your invoicing system from within Jobber, including details like pricing schedules and invoice frequencies. Jobber sends invoices by email automatically, and the platform will let you know if there is ever a problem with delivery. When clients forget to send payments, Jobber sends automated reminders at the intervals you select. It also includes features for payment tracking and integrates with electronic payment partners including Paypal, Braintree, and Stripe.
Time spent on the road is time that businesses can’t bill for, which is why Jobber takes its routing features seriously. The application uses route optimization to put unscheduled jobs into the best order by location, decreasing the time that professionals spend driving from jobsite to jobsite each day.
Use the drag-and-drop job ordering feature to put unscheduled jobs into a more suitable order using a digital map. You can make changes in real-time if a client reschedules or cancels an appointment. You can also add-on GPS tracking to improve operational efficiencies for your field service technicians.
Task management is an important feature for workplace productivity. Using Jobber, field service professionals can keep tabs on what’s going on inside the office, even when they’re working on the road.
Assign tasks to your team, or yourself, making sure to include deadlines and details whenever possible. When you complete tasks in the field, your in-office staff is immediately notified. If you forget to complete a certain task, Jobber will send you an automated reminder before the task is scheduled. Calendar synchronization is another feature that ensures tasks are completed on time whenever possible.
Reports help businesses determine what they’re doing right, and what they’re doing wrong, along the path to maximizing productivity and efficiency. With Jobber, users are able to create customized reports that target virtually any aspect of their businesses.
Click on the “Management” tab to create a report for your business, making sure to select which type of report you’d like to automatically generate. Historical reports allow you to pull past data and review how your productivity or income levels have changed over time. You can also create invoicing reports, transaction reports, and even client communication logs. Reports can be exported as CSV files.
Jobber integrates with a number of external business applications, including electronic payment services such as PayPal, Braintree, and Stripe. Users can also integrate Jobber with accounting platforms from QuickBooks and Xero.
Jobber charges a flat $39 per month for everything a business needs, with no contracts, no setup fees, and no training costs. Although Jobber includes two login users and unlimited employees for that price, businesses will have to pay $9 a month per additional login user. Add-on features, such as GPS tracking, chemical tracking, and time sheets are available at an additional price, as well.

CLAY-NOR lawn care, Small Business Owner at CLAY-NOR lawn care
My name is Clayton and I have been using Jobber for only 4 months and I really like it. Even the things that I don't like usually get corrected by them constantly updating and improving the program. And when they do make these upgrades it is a very smooth transition that does NOT require much figuring out. I will say though that the customer service is like nothing else I have ever seen before. It is absolutely without a doubt 10 out 10.
Levi Koenig, Founder AllBox.Com & CleaningPros.Ca
Where I want Jobber to be at: All invoices and payment scenarios are handled in Jobber and then I sync to Quickbooks. Done! Where we are currently at with Jobber: We sync everything, but since all scenarios aren't covered in Jobber, we have to augment invoices and payments in Quickbooks to make changes. As soon as this happens it immediately puts Jobber and Quickbooks out of sync and Jobber's accounting reports and features become useless. Here are some of the main issues that we are encountering with Jobber: Invoices are not truly in sync (this is huge!) Any refunds or changes AFTER an invoice has been initially synced to QBO has to be changed by the Jobber Dev team, and even when the Jobber Dev team makes changes to an invoice, those changes aren't synced to QBO. For this scenario, I urge you to look at a similar program called ServiceCEO. The way the handle invoices and payments is very intuitive. Can’t apply a negative line item All discounts get lumped together into one bucket. As a company, I want to track which types of credits and discounts we are giving customers so that we can keep an eye on certain aspects of our business. For example: at the end of each month I want to know how much we lost on damages, and how much we gave away to customers in appointment credits. Can’t apply a discount until invoice is closed. As a user of the program, when a customer phones in and complains about their service or appointment, I want to be able to go into their next appointment and immediately add the credit to that appointment so I don't forget. We are able to apply a negative line item in QBO...so what gives? No partial payments You can’t attach 2 payments to an invoice. Customers sometimes underpay or overpay their invoices, it is common to need to apply multiple payments to one invoice. If you do attach partial payment to an invoice, and you add the other payment, there is a balance owing shown on the customers account. Client cannot prepay or apply a payment before their appointment unless we delete that initial payment and make a new one when we create an invoice.
Pros: - Great design - Good pricing - Support is very friendly
Cons: - Cumbersome processes & workflows that don't seem to be fully thought out - Accounting sync and systems within the program are severely limited - No official support for multi-location companies as of yet - Maximum recurring job is 3 years (in the scenario where a regular client stays with you for longer then 3 years, the job would expire.)

Royce Ard, Company Owner at My Right Hand Man, Inc.
Our company provides two disparate services to home owners, handyman services and residential cleaning services. Finding a scheduling software solution to handle both types of businesses was a challenge. When we finally found Jobber we were very pleased to find a solution that was both complete and yet easy to learn and use. We were able to import our customer base from Quickbooks with no problem. As a matter of fact, the import/export functionality between Quickbooks and Jobber is exceptional. Now, we are able to enter information once (at the time of an estimate) and then use that same information to populate the work order and invoice in Jobber and even export it to Quickbooks so that we have a complete record of the work done in our accounting software. The two products combine to give your business a one-two punch in the battle to manage the amount of information generated on a daily basis. The calendar/scheduling portion of Jobber is also very good. We use the "grid" view and its easy to move jobs during the day or even to reassign to another team member. One improvement that could be made is to add team functionality to the scheduler. From a systems standpoint, this is not easy to do and I'm sure that once the programmers at Jobber figure it out, it will be rolled out to the users. We have just started using the capability to attach files to our customer's profiles. Now, we are able to scan handwritten documents such as estimates and attach them to the Quote in Jobber so that we can always go back and see the original document if needed. One concern with a cloud based scheduler such as Jobber is up time. I am happy to report that up time has never been an issue. The system operates with 99.99% availability. Its ready to use when you need it. Jobber provides exceptional customer service through their chat feature. A tech is always available during business hours.
Pros: Ease of set up Ease of training - very intuitive to learn Ease of use You can go ahead and start today and use as a calendar. As you become more comfortable you can easily add more of their functionality.
Thank you so much for the kind words! We're so happy that you find Jobber easy to use – that's something we pride ourselves on.
Please do let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
Rachel Morken, Owner at Appliance Rescue Service
We are an appliance repair company and were previously using a few different methods and programs to keep track of our upcoming jobs and outstanding invoices. Using Jobber has given us a much clearer picture of our invoices, schedule, and quotes. It's freed up a lot of my time to focus on marketing and promotion strategies to grow our business. We feel more confident about growing our business in the near future, now that we know we will be able to keep track of the work flow and employees so easily. I love that Jobber helps me to properly route our jobs and it syncs everything up with Quickbooks. The only thing I that I have had any trouble with, is that Jobber will not sync invoices to Quickbooks if the customer memo is over 101 characters, which Aidan has assured me they are working on correcting (Jobber has great customer support!). Regardless, I highly recommend this program!
Pros: Easy to use Map feature helps to route jobs Reminds to collect on outstanding bills Syncs to Quickbooks Great customer support
So glad to hear that Jobber is helping you grow your business! If you need anything, don't hesitate to reach out.
Charles Ledbury, Comfort Consultant at Comfort Air Heating and Cooling
We had been using at least 4 different programs, different one for our accounting dept., sales dept, service dept, scheduling so on and so on. We found Jobber and have been able to eliminate all of the other programs and get to sync with quick books so the accounting dept. can easily stay on top of everything. While it hasn't been able to satisfy every minor thing we do the on line chat support is so helpful that we were able to set it up to handle over 90% of our things and most of the other items are in development. We couldn't be happier and the operating cost is $1000's less than what we were spending...THANK YOU
Pros: easy to see where everyone is at both customers and technicians expandable data base
Cons: many things still in developement
Hey Charles! Thanks for the review - we love hearing from such positive feedback from our customers. Reducing your workload and saving you money makes us very happy :)
Norrie Herd, Director
Running a small Landscaping Grounds Maintenance business requires a certain amount of paperwork and organisation. With paperwork and IT not being my strength I had to find a way to help me with the day to day running of a business in terms of scheduling, invoicing, quoting for work which would often take up to two to three full days accumulated each month. I started to search for an application to help in this process and came across JOBBER, I was given a free 28 day trial, well this was the best thing i have ever done, it so simple but yet genius in the first month it reminded me of over £800 of invoices i had forgot about and it is a joy to use even enjoyable for a non computer dude. It has actually made me enjoy my work more as endless mind numbing paper work is now a thing of the past. IT has also helped me to want grow my business again but never wished to before because i new paperwork wold increase equaling a headache. I cannot stress enough how great this programme is for the small to medium sized business and would always tell anyone thinking of a way to make business easier to give the JOBBER trial a try there is nothing to loose and everything to gain. I LOVE IT. well done JOBBER. OH and i am not paid for this review its from my heart and feel it should be praised for what it has done for me!!
Pros: Simple, looks extremely professional, very affordable, great to have the addition of a phone app, its like having a PA without a voice, help is always at hand should you need assistance
Cons: Honestly not found any yet and if there is any cons the pros for me would out weigh them everytime
Thanks so much for the kind words. It makes our job so rewarding to see that what we're doing is impacting business operators like yourself in such a positive way.
From day one it was a pleasure working with and supporting you in your Jobber adventure.
If you need anything in the future, don't hesitate to give me a call.
A verified reviewer
Great system, allows us to plan months ahead. Keeps track of all jobs, visits and invoices. The support you receive from jobber staff is excellent. I highly recommend using jobber.
Pros: Tells you to do an invoice once job is put on the system. Easy access to reports that contain all the vital information required for working with the public in the lawn treatment business.
Cons: Would like the option of more email templates other than quotes, client reminders and invoices. However knowing team at jobber that will come soon hopefully.
Thanks so much for the review. It's been great getting you all set up with Jobber. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
Ben Orr, Owner at Northern seasonal Services LLC.
Awesome app 1 month in and it has already simplified so much of what I do, and I'm pretty sure I have only scratched the surface of what jobber can do! Nick has been supper helpful!
Cons: Wish there was a way to route my snow removal customers... Same route- randomly occurring / on demand, instead of having to re build the routes every time...
It's been great to work with you as well. With regards to your routing question, I believe I can help with that. I'll try to connect with you in the next few days.
Arian Rolfes, General Manager at Janitorial Building Service
I manage the client interface of a In-Home Cleaning Service in San Diego, I had requested that the E-Mail list be added to the One-Off Jobs report, within 1 week Nick Fisher was able to get that up and going for me! He even gave me a courtesy call to let me know approximately when it would be up! Quick response, great customer service, and very helpful!
Pros: Small support crew, easier to communicate with and keep track of who you've spoken with.
You're going to make me blush! It was my pleasure helping you with the E-mail list addition. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to give me a call.
