Compare ServiceM8 to NextMinute

Like Tradify, ServiceM8 is great for the smaller tradie that doesn’t run complex projects and is a sole trader or has 1 or 2 staff.

Great for managing small ‘van teams’ across many different job sites, with great scheduling and alerts. Got an iPhone? Then you’re good but if you have anything Android there’s no ServiceM8 app for you we're afraid.

Nextminute is built from the ground up to organise, plan and manage more complex projects such as renovation projects, new home builds, landscaping jobs or shop fitouts. NextMinute job planning and back costing are purpose built for more complex building and renovation projects and stands head and shoulders above ServiceM8.
