Estimates, Invoicing, and Secure Payments in One Cleaning Business Software

When it comes to getting paid, FreshBooks is here to help you every step of the way. Our cloud-based service software allows you to create custom estimates and proposals – with your branding front and center – and easily send them to customers, so that you can properly set expectations about how much your cleaning service will cost.

And once the cleaning job is complete, it’s easy to send invoices with one of FreshBooks’ sleek invoice templates for cleaning businesses. Simply pick the template that you want to use, add your business details, list the cleaning services provided, and send it to the customer. All without ever leaving the dashboard.

Using our service software isn’t just easier for you, either. It’s easier for your customers as well. Through FreshBooks, you can accept credit card and ACH (US Only) payments online. Whenever you send an invoice, the customer is also sent a link to a secure payment gateway, allowing them to pay off their balance in the same amount of time it takes to open their email. Alternatively, you can set up a recurring billing schedule for regular customers, eliminating this issue altogether.

Another thing that the FreshBooks software allows you to do is to stay on top of overdue payments. You don’t have to waste time following up with customers who haven’t paid – FreshBooks software sends automated late payment reminders for you. And if late payments are a huge problem for your cleaning business, you can automatically add late payment fees to any invoice.

Real-Time Field Service Management for Cleaning Companies

The bigger your maid service business gets, the harder it is to stay on top of your operations. That’s why we developed FreshBooks, a field service management software that scales with your business without sacrificing its ease-of-use. 

We take care of the small details of your day-to-day operations so that you don’t have to – even if you’re away from your desk. FreshBooks cleaning service software is completely cloud-based, which means that you get real-time notifications whenever there’s a change to your books, no matter where you are in the world.

Even better, your maid service team can collaborate with you. Instead of submitting their hours and expenses to you at the end of the day, they can update the field service management system on their own, instantly, and from their own mobile device.

This makes simultaneously managing multiple customers and employees a breeze. At a glance, you’ll be able to see client accounts, services rendered, unfinished tasks, and business expenses. And you never have to question if the numbers are updated or not, which can help you make more informed business decisions on the spot.

Maid Service Scheduling

If you charge by the hour, it’s important that you know how long your maid service takes. FreshBooks has a built-in task timer that your cleaning team can use when they start a job. Just run the clock, and the software will do the rest. 

This hits two birds with one stone. You can then add the time tracked to an invoice so you can accurately bill customers for your services, and use the same information to pay your workers fairly for the work they’ve done.

Inventory Management

Customers aren’t just paying for your cleaning services, they’re also paying for the supplies your team uses on every job. While that may be packaged into their final bill, you (as the business owner) need to keep track of your inventory to make sure that you always have cleaning supplies on hand. 

FreshBooks, combined with its many app integrations, allows you to monitor your supplies and charge customers for the resources they use. 

Accounts & Financial Records

FreshBooks software provides in-depth data analysis and cross-platform integration, allowing you to see the bigger picture surrounding your business. From profit & loss statements to sales tax summaries to expense reports, each record is only a few clicks away. Best of all, our reports are presented in an easy-to-understand format – you don’t need a degree in accounting to know where your business stands financially.

Choosing a Reliable Service Software for Your Cleaning or Maid Service Business

If you’re ready to lighten your load as a business owner, it’s time to work smart and let FreshBooks do all the heavy lifting. Whether you need invoicing, cloud-based data storage, or field service management software, our team can help you keep up with the everyday tasks of running a maid service business.

One of the things you should look for is a user-friendly interface. There are many management platforms out there, but beware, some are much more difficult to learn than others. You’ll want to hit the right balance between functionality and usability – something that does everything you need it to without it being too complicated to pick up.

Another thing you need to consider is security. Online payments have come a long way in recent years, but a single fraudulent charge can do irreparable damage to your business’ reputation. You have to make sure that the software you work with guarantees data privacy and security, especially when it comes to credit card information.

Lastly, you should always factor in price. Many cleaning software providers charge hundreds or even thousands of dollars a month, but it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. You can still get budget-friendly business software without compromising on quality or customer support.

The Top Choice for Cleaning Service Management

If you’re ready to experience hassle-free bookkeeping and invoicing, why not put FreshBooks to the test? Help your cleaning business reach its fullest potential by choosing the right service software for sustainable success. 

FreshBooks comes with plenty of features that we’re sure you’ll love. Send custom, professional invoices to customers in a snap. Track expenses easily by taking a photo of your receipts and uploading them to the software. Respond to client feedback right in the app. And if you need even more capabilities, integrate more than 100+ platforms to your dashboard.
