How do Select Contractors access the specific services and features available at their level?

Most of the subscription features and services are available directly on ServiceChannel.com, so Select Contractors can access them by simply logging in to their accounts. Platinum level Select Contractors will be contacted by their new assigned account managers to assist them with additional benefits.

How are Contractor Select fees calculated?

Over 70% of contractors may use the ServiceChannel platform for free using the Green subscription level.

If a contractor submits 52 or more invoices with at least one customer relationship they receive Silver designation and pay will pay $1 per invoice or $52. After that, SCP fees are simply $1 per invoice for all relationships which have 52 or more invoices per year.

There are no fees for:

• Relationships with less than 52 invoices per year

• Work orders, acknowledgements, IVR access, reminder calls from our call

center, mobile apps and all the benefits above listed under the green

our commitment to contractor value
Our Commitment to Contractor Value

ServiceChannel offers contractors top and bottom line 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.
