mHelpDesk does what I need it to do. It is affordable for a small shop. It's the only software that allowed my, not-so-computer-literal, technicians to create detailed invoices in the field AND HAND IT TO THE CUSTOMER, and record payment.
I would recommend it.
Most of my frustrations come from having such a very functional software package and my techs have to fill out paper timesheets. All the data needed to create a timesheet exists in the Price List including Items or fields called Labor-Travel, Labor-Tech or Labor-Apprentice. The time they signed in and signed out exists in the items list of the invoice. All we need is a report that can filter this data and voila we have timesheets.
Support is very good.
Works great if you make many invoices in the field, print them and hand them to customers. Must have internet signal.
Email Invoice with Payment Button. Customer clicks the button and pays with credit card.
Easily convert Estimates to Service Call to Invoice.
Customer Info with multiple jobsites easily managable.
Great mobile app., fluid, very functional, easy to use.
Intuitive desktop platform.
Works great with QuickBooks Desktop.
You will have to pay to retrive YOUR DATA when you leave mHelpDesk.
No inventory. Don't let them fool you. You cannot create PO's and have to go to a price list, select and item, delete the quantity, and enter the new quantity everytime you want to add inventory. No inventory history.
No Time sheets. Again, don't let them fool you. Technicians can sign in in the morning and sign out in the afternoon and you can print a report. That's it. No phase codes. Cannot label time entries. No way to associate payroll to billable hours/ServiceCalls/Jobs.
Custom Reports? Never could create one that was usefull and I have 20 yrs experience in MS Access.
Tim--thank you so much for this detailed and very helpful feedback! We will share it with the product team so they can explore some of the ideas that you've raised.
- great customer service availability by phone and online chat.
- easy scheduling.
- mobile app for technicians on the road.
With the help of the support team I was able to filter out a list of customers that live in a certain region. Our out of town customers are grouped by areas. In order to send those customers a reminder email or reminder cards we need to filter them from mHelp. The report feature is too restricted and didn't help us. Then finally I had someone on the phone that told me to create a new selection under Customers. I selected the cities that are on that route and listed all of them separately. And voila, I had a list of customers that I was able to export to excel.
I don't like the way the reports are set up. There should be at least one report available that we can select/ search for all the fields that we need included. At the moment the customer custom fields can NOT be selected. Although this is a database that we're working on and theoretically all fields can be searched. I think it is not only us that ran into this problem. I need to be able to select fields that are important to our business to filter out e.g. the customer, their address, email, phone number in a certain region.
Another problem that came up from the solution above is that those lists can not be edited and therefore always need to be deleted and re-entered. It would be great if that could be editable. If that function would be editable it would eliminate possible mistakes while re-entering the whole list of e.g. cities that were entered before.
Hi Sigrid--thank you so much for this review and feedback on our reporting. We're always looking at ways to improve so this is very helpful, and will be shared with our product team. We appreciate it!
mHelpDesk has been a welcomed addition to our operations. In vetting the product it was challenging getting accurate information about how we wished to use the tool. We integrate it with QB and use QB Advanced Inventory for our inventory mgmt. It has been challenging getting the functionality we desire from the inventory module through the mHD UI. Since rolling it out, the core functionality is working well. The enhancements specific to our operations have been less successful. The fact that the mHD team is constantly gathering feedback and augmenting functionality makes me more confident that we will eventually be able to use it as we intended to use it from the onset. The forthcoming API is a big part of this.
Easy association of work orders with easy to produce estimates & invoicing.
Customizations are easily achievable via a user facing settings interface which is quite intuitive.
Support has been very responsive to our requests. We may not always get the answers we wish we would get but support is quite robust.
mHD is always gathering info from the users and adding functionality. We are greatly anticipating the API.
the user defined fields are just free text fields. You must export a CSV to use the data.
It would be much more helpful if when I enter the mileage from the field techs I could then run a mileage report.
The customized report interface is lacking. You cannot query the DB directly.
I researched quite a few different comparable products and this is by far the best. I have a very small business with a staff that HATES technology and change and they are even capable of using this system.
It's Crazy Easy to use!
You can manage your "people" in one spot. I can see my customers and staff's profile in the click of a button.
I can organize my techs work by "Jobs" that connect right to their schedules.
The estimates are professional and accurate.
I can hide details that I don't want to share with my customers on any "template" I need to.
It is very easy to customize your templates.
You can search by any piece of info you have (name, phone number, email, address etc.).
The reports are extremely easy to run and very detailed.
The app Has a functioning offline mode for when there is no service.
The app and online version give you the option to see other peoples schedule (if they have permission).
The app used google maps so it is always up to date.
I can hide confidential info from my techs based on permission.
My people can clock in and out right from their phones.
It is compatible with quick books.
I can easily calculate my markups right from the estimate screen.
The customer service is absolutely unbeatable. They are always there during business hours. Everyone I speak with fixes my problems right away no matter if it is in a chat screen or over the phone.
Lastly everyone I speak with is clear and concise. I am speaking to people that know what they are doing.
I wish i could see a real time map view of where my techs are and have been from the online version. They have the option on the app to view a map of where an employee has been that day but I don't think there is a real time map of my people right from the online version.
This product is a little expensive for a small business if you have a lot of employees that need to have an account.
We were much happier with the original version and while we continue to use the software, I still and looking for a new option to try.
It is fairly easy to use. We mainly use it to create invoices and work orders that we print and send to customers. The customization of forms was great when they helped us initially set it up.
We acutally loved this product when we first started using it. We used it on a desktop in the office. We were on the original version until they kicked us off and told us it was not longer available. The do not truly think of the people who have to use it on a desktop at all. The font is so light that I literally get a headache each day trying to read it on my 20inch monitor. I have already enlarged the magnification and then when I try to create new customers or other things, you cannot see the save button on the enlarged screen.
We have tried to tell them this, but to no avail. Why would you not think there are people working in offices on desktops and laptops still??? Since they have Home Advisor, Mhelp seems to be the step child and they no longer allow you to make suggestions. I guess they do not care anymore what their customers think.

Win more jobs, stay more organized and grow your business with our industry leading field service software.
mHelpDesk allows you to access your customer information from any computer or any device. Our software is easy to use for estimates, scheduling, jobs, invoicing and so much more.
mHelpDesk is perfect for HVAC, Plumbers, Electricians, Pest Control, Computer Repair, Carpet Cleaners, Maid Service, and many more!
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
