HVAC Service Agreement Setting – Change Start and End Dates
A subtle feature that most companies may have missed is the ability to change the start and end dates on a service agreement for a particular customer. This feature is particularly handy today where “the norm” has been completely thrown out the window and HVAC companies need as much flexibility as possible.
When the feature is activated, any service agreement can be changed, even expired service agreements. This gives HVAC companies the ultimate flexibility when it comes to managing your service agreement customers.
Changing the service agreement start or end date has no impact on the service agreement tune ups themselves. Shortening the end date will not remove any tune ups and likewise, extending the end date will not increase any tune ups. Any updates to the tune ups, as a result of the start or end date change, must be addressed separately.
Please note, this feature is a company-wide setting, not a user-specific setting and it only applies to the Command Center. Regardless of the setting, the technicians will not be able to change the dates out in the field.
