Our Commitment to Contractor 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.
