Alternatives to mHelpDesk

GetApp Analysis

Mhelpdesk is an advanced field service solution that allows service teams to work more productively by avoiding redundant paperwork, tracking their orders with great efficiency and issuing invoices on the fly. The workforce is monitored and managed more effectively through the field agents’ mobile devices.

This helpful tool can be utilized with great success in all industries such as plumbers, hvac, appliance repair, IT and computer repair, pest control, electricians, landscaping, handymen, carpet cleaning and other kinds of service crews.

The top features of the application include an intuitive home screen that helps users get started right away, seamless integration with Google Maps for monitoring the location of the on-field technicians, a status tracking screen that keeps users constantly updated on the progress of a task, service request online forms for clients and instant billing and invoicing abilities.

What is mHelpDesk?

Mhelpdesk aims at modernizing the way field service teams work and interact with their customers both in terms of billing and the submission of feedback, while also raising the quality of the offered services. This can be achieved through better customer request handling and management of jobs.

The software allows companies to process and address their customer requests fast, thus directly increasing the revenue and providing the basis for further development of their business. Moreover, it provides companies with intuitive customer data that helps speed up invoicing processes.

Main Features

Simple Scheduling

Jobs can be filled-in by the office manager who can use the corresponding tab on the main screen. Details like customer contact and location information, job name and notes that would help service teams prepare accordingly can be added.

Mhelpdesk is beneficial even from the customer’s perspective. Customers themselves can also schedule a service call by filling a simple online calendar with all the aforementioned details. This online calendar can be integrated with the company's website and users can log-in to schedule a service. This way, the need for more customer service employees is significantly lessened.

Job Tracking

After a job is submitted and approved, it gets transformed into a job item with a distinct tracking number. Using the Job Tracking feature, administrators can quickly overview all job statuses with live updates from the field agents’ mobile devices, check the customer’s location and get instantly informed when a job is completed.

This decisively decreases the communication costs for a company, as it renders calls pointless. It also helps achieve better time management and planning ahead. In addition to that, field agents will no longer be able to take advantage of the nature of their work and take unscheduled breaks that undermine the overall efficiency and organizational efforts of a company.

Billing and Invoicing

Billing customers for field services is one of the most time-consuming processes. With Mhelpdesk’s billing and invoicing features, users can pre-fill invoices with the customer's data before the service team even reaches the customer’s location.

Templates can be used to personalize invoices and a company logo can be freely added for a more individualized result. Customers can fill the remaining information of the invoice right on the agent's mobile device screen, while virtual signatures are fully supported by the platform as well as instant payment.

Workforce Management

As administrators know exactly where their field service teams are located at any given moment, they can efficiently manage them to meet the ever-changing demands and requirements of their customers. With Mhelpdesk, no agents are left inactive and no customers are waiting for extended periods of time to receive the ordered service.

Through the easy to use user interface, administrators can provide critical data and help when such is needed by the agents, while keeping their teams flexible and adaptable to any changes that may be submitted by clients later on.

Location Awareness

With Mhelpdesk, administrators can locate all field technicians in real-time and assign them with the nearest jobs based on their geographic map location. This way, fuel expenses and customer waiting time are dramatically decreased, while customer satisfaction is elevated to a higher level.

This is possible by using the agent's mobile device GPS sensors and Mhelpdesk's abilities to fully integrate with Google Maps from where it can retract European, UK, US, Australian and Canadian maps. Both agents and customers appear on the map, and jobs are conveniently named so that admins can assign them to the right personnel without having to recourse elsewhere.

Integrations

Mhelpdesk is very interoperable as it boasts an API that can be used to integrate the application with the software tools a company may be using. One important example is the ability to integrate the customers' online service order with any existing website.

Other integrations include the Google Calendar that admins can utilize to schedule jobs and tasks for their field agents, Google Maps that is used to locate customers and agents, and Quickbooks that can receive exported data from Mhelpdesk to be used by accountants.

Pricing

Mhelpdesk comes in four versions that offer a different set of features and abilities. The starter package comes at the price of $30 per month and allows users to manage unlimited number of customers, 25 jobs/month, 25 invoices/month, 1 administrator and $30 for each additional user. The next step is the Pro package that costs $75/month and offers unlimited jobs and invoices, 1 admin and $25 for each new user.

For more advanced needs there is the Business package that costs $149/month and can accommodate up to 5 administrators and charges $20 for each new user. The Enterprise package price ranges based on the actual needs and requirements. There is also a free trial version that lasts 14 days.

Bottom Line

  • Job Tracking
  • Agent Location
  • Customer Online Ordering
  • Billing and Invoicing
  • Better Workforce Management

Pros

Mhelpdesk is a simple to use software that is a one stop shop to take jobs from creation to completion. Support is second to none.

Cons

The mobile application is a bit slow and could be more user friendly. But our guys have laptops so it hasn't effected us all that much.

Inexpensive little software that gives bang for the buck

20/07/2017

Very happy with the software! We are not paying for a Mercedes nor are we getting one. But this is a well made little Honda that very nicely us from point A to point B.

Pros

Unlimited users for flat fee Many ways to adapt and use this software to suit unique company needs Updates have been improved the product, especially like "timesheets". Many modules which allow us to roll out new functionality as team gets used to existing functionality. Easy for field staff to us Easy for managers to use

Cons

Would like to be able to hide more fields/functionality for field staff including assigning jobs. Would like to be able to customize invoices , estimates etc based on job type Would be nice to be able to update customer info in job tab

Limited Software/Constant Crashes Interface Issues & Mobile App Crashes/Not very compatible with QB

Only Great SRS , They seemed very aware of the limitations, everything was being turned over to product development/review.

Pros

Great customer support..... Other than that they know they need to go back to the drawing board, as I've been told countless times my CRS reps.

Cons

Limited Software/Constant Crashes Interface Issues & Mobile App Crashes/Not very compatible with QB. As per headline

Best option we found for a Professional Services Automation (PSA) platform.

11/07/2017

It does the job we need it to do: a Help Desk for internal and external use and Service management.

Pros

For what it does and the price, it was the best deal we found after having looked at other a dozen alternatives. We hardly use half of what it advertises it can do, but all we needed was a Help Desk and Service Ticket platform for our use as a security systems integrator and MSP provider. Their salesperson was extremely patient and helpful, and hosted multiple webinars for stakeholders who could not all attend at the same time. It's still rough around the edges that we need to tweak, but it's 10 times better than trying to use our CRM to do service tickets like we had been doing.

Cons

The interface has that odd feeling, take-up-the-entire-screen-realestate look that supposedly a websites that have to be "Google search friendly" are forced to contend with. Reporting is weak. Some info on screen like service ticket numbers can't be selected with the mouse for copying and pasting, strangely, and not all information detailed areas are easy to get to. No Salesforce integration, but supposedly that is coming someday soon.

Response from mHelpDesk


Hi Randy--thank you for the feedback. It appears you tried to contact us over the July 4th holiday, when our staffing was limited due to the holiday. We try our best to communicate holiday hours to our customers well in advance via email and other means. We're sorry that you didn't feel mHelpDesk met your expectations in this aspect, but please reach out if we can help in any way in the future.

MhelpDesk talks a big game but fails to back it up

25/06/2017

A headache

Pros

Customer service department is located in the USA and they have great hours of operation that cater to both West and East Coast

Cons

Fails in every aspect of execution, from set up to customer satisfaction. MhelpDesk was built on empty promises. Ill summarize my experience in a very brief manner to save everyone time. Signed up with MhelpDesk and paid a premium for the premium set-up team to assist in customizing our workflow. Was promised it would be no longer than two weeks but we would strive for 1 week set up time. 1 month later, we are no where. No familiarity with the software. Set up rep, talks too much doesn't listen. 2nd month, new service rep. Great guy, listens very well. Initially make great progress. However we ran into many issues which were supposed to be resolved, some issues would take 4-5 reminders to actually fix. He would say the issue is fixed and it was not, so they must conduct no testing at all. 3rd month. Out of pure frustration we set up 8 hours for our own employees to run through the software and try to figure out our own set up. which we did. Everything is customized to our specs and we completed the set up process from 50 to 100% on our own. 4th month: Customers not receiving email notifications, Customer service has been contacted 4-5 times and offers no solutions, they cannot find the problem so they dismiss it. This has been one one of the worst businesses we've ever dealt with. A huge waste of time and money. They will tell you everything you want to hear with a great attitude but when something goes wrong, and it will. You are on your own. Good luck

Outstanding

22/06/2017

Pros

The product is efficient for both the work field and office staff. The notifications are immediate and helpful to project managers

Cons

We have to forward some notes because mHelpDesk only notifies 2 contacts. It would be helpful to have the option of notifying more than 2 people in our case.

Ok.

19/06/2017

For the amount of money we spent it does a basic job. Wish there could be more ways to make custom forms look good in a printed and pdf display.

Pros

Quick and easy set up . We paid for the premium set up and we got it. Program is great for service work. Great for organizing a small or large crew of workers.

Cons

Doesnt auto save so you loose some information of your not careful. Have troubles sending items to Quickbooks. Wish that process was easier. Not good for New construction when you have multiple steps to a job and need multiple job types and multiple forms for the same location. Custom forms not really customization unless you know coding. The templates are great but wish I could organize the sheet to print out nicely. No ability to make contracts.

I've enjoyed how user friendly it is!

16/06/2017

Overall really happy with the outstanding customer service which lots of companies have lost sight of these days and the software itself.

Pros

The icons as menu options and the easy to use mobile app. That one can also use the app on the tablet for the sales reps that are out with the customer.

Cons

I cannot edit the tax manually or override the amount that is totaling up and the editing/cropping feature of the logo.
