PaySimple Embeds Payments, Cash Management Tools For In-Field Technicians

Payments and commerce company PaySimple announced its latest integration into a third-party service provider.

The firm announced it is integrating its payments processing capabilities, PaySimple AppConnect, into Profit Rhino, a mobile sales tool and pricing service platform for in-the-field service providers like home services and repairs.

While the integration means Profit Rhino users will be able to accept payments on-site, PaySimple is also providing additional back-office features to the portal, including cash flow management and forecasting, and service agreement billing.

“The integration addresses key pain points experienced by business owners and service technicians in the field: techs collecting and keeping track of paper checks, techs writing down or reporting back credit card information, customers forgetting to pay or paying late, employees having to follow up or track down payments from customers, and employees manually entering payment records into multiple systems,” PaySimple said in its announcement.

According to Profit Rhino CEO Jose Moreira, the integration will “improve overall customer experience” for both end-customers as well as the businesses and technicians working in the field.

“We are pleased to partner with Profit Rhino to launch the PaySimple AppConnect platform, helping contractors improve their workflow in the home," said PaySimple president David Sharp in another statement. "Our integration allows contractors to get paid on-the-spot, enjoying vastly accelerated cash flow and improving the experience for the homeowner."

The partnership with Profit Rhino follows last year's launch by PaySimple of its point-of-sale software designed for services businesses. Described as a “virtual cash register,” the Service Point of Sale (sPOS) solution includes customer relationship management, reporting, and other back-office capabilities while offering payment acceptance for card and ACH payments.

Earlier this year another company, Insynq, introduced another solution for in-field service providers. The company revealed a partnership with Service Fusion in January to support the adoption of cloud technologies for in-the-field service management companies.
