Business management cloud solutions simPRO announced that it is partnering with Square to provide payment processing options to field service professionals, according to a press release.

The integration provides field service businesses with a mobile payment solution to accept card payments at the time of service, receive funds as early as the next business day, and issue invoices from the field. And the intuitive functionality of Square’s features will enable businesses to cut down on paper work, administrative tasks and billing errors.

“Processing payments and managing transactions is an important part of the field service workflow,” Jonathan Eastgate, simPRO chief technology officer, said in the release. “By partnering with Square’s trusted payment platform, we are simplifying the billing and invoicing process for our customers.”

Founded in 2002, simPRO secured $31 million in growth capital in 2016 as part of an aggressive product innovation and expansion strategy. Headquartered in Brisbane, Australia, the company also has regional headquarters in the United States, United Kingdom and New Zealand, allowing it to provide global leadership for trade and specialty contractors. simPRO currently has more than 5,500 clients and 150,000 active users worldwide.

The company is now the first field service management software partner for Square. Square’s Global Head of Partnerships Pankaj Bengani said the partnership will give his company the chance to serve more field service businesses as it strives to expand globally.

“Square has seen strong growth among sellers in the field service industry who enjoy the ability to have a mobile and simple payments solution that they can carry in their pocket to get paid no matter where they are,” he said. “We are excited to partner with simPRO, who can help us better support businesses across this industry. Together we can equip them with all the tools they need to grow and thrive.”
