COLUMBUS, Ohio — Service industry software company, My Service Depot, has announced the launch of Google Calendar integration in its Smart Service software. The company said Smart Service’s Google Calendar integration will allow service industry professionals to view their schedules and job information on the go, from any Internet-enabled device.

Smart Service is a desktop-based scheduling and routing application. My Service Depot said that, for more than 10 years, Smart Service has been helping HVAC service contractors, plumbers, electricians, and others streamline and optimize their job processes. This new feature aims to bring the efficiency of Smart Service out of the office and into the field. Any device that can run Google can now access Smart Service.

“In the service industry, field workers spend too much of their time calling the office for directions or basic job information,” said Skip Stringfield, My Service Depot founder. “With Smart Service and Google Calendar, we’ve put the answers in the palm of their hands — literally. As soon as they check their phones, workers will know exactly where to go, when to be there, and what to do when they arrive.”

The company said Smart Service’s Google Calendar integration provides service businesses with advanced scheduling tools without the need for additional hardware. “Your workers are already using something to call the office for instructions,” said Stringfield. “With Google Calendar integration, they can use that ‘something’ to pull up their schedule and answer their own questions instead.”
