In-House Payments
What does that mean?

Jobber’s online payments feature is built in house, and supported in house. When you have an issue with payments, you speak to us directly. No need to wait in a third-party vendor’s call queue.

You won’t get that payment support with Kickserv.

Kickserv also has fees as high as 4.2% on Discover and Amex. When you choose Jobber, you get a flat fee of 2.9% on all cards, regardless of which credit card your customers use.

ROuting
What does that mean?

Jobber’s route optimization software lets you visualize the day’s work and determine the quickest, most cost and fuel-effective route for every job. You can’t say the same about Kickserv.

Service business resource hub
What does that mean?

Kickserv’s blog isn’t regularly updated. So, customers don’t have the opportunity to learn and grow through this additional business resource.

Every week Jobber Academy publishes industry expert advice, success stories, best practices, and tools for entrepreneurs who want to grow their service business.

Jobber was part of the reason why we were able to grow from three to 35 in less than five years.
Without it, our growth wouldn’t have been entirely possible, or as easy as it has been. It’s been a missing puzzle piece that allowed our growth to happen.
