What is a Service Type?

Service Types are used to group services and tie them to your divisions. They can be thought of as Sub Divisions. They are the link between divisions and services to break down the pricing mark ups on your opportunities.

Examples of Service Types, like for a Maintenance Division, could be General Maintenance, Chemical Applications, Commercial or Residential.


⚠️ To create or edit Service Types, the user must have System Admin access.

⚠️ If you are currently in Implementation, it's recommended to start simple with your Service Types. You can always add complexity as you continue using your system!
