How to PERFORM payments in the field.
  1. Once the service technician has completed a job, click on the GPS Insight app and open up the Work Order. Once you have filled in all the necessary fields as per your business operations (e.g. notes, “To Dos”, photos), click on General and change the status to Completed. This is necessary for the job to be invoiced.





  2. Click Yes to complete. You will then be prompted to capture a signature if there is no signature present on the account. If a signature is required, select no, capture the signature and then change status to complete again. If a signature is not required, select yes.
