Frequently Asked Questions

Why is ServiceCore the best alternative to CRO Software Solutions?

ServiceCore is built specifically for portable rental, septic, grease, and roll-off rental operators. It cuts wasted time, easily manages jobs, optimizes routes, tracks inventory, and automates billing. You’re able to manage customers from a single screen (not multiple screens!), your billing and invoices are unified, and everything is easy to use by all of your departments.

Why do portable restroom businesses choose ServiceCore over CRO Software Solutions?

Our software has been developed with input from former operators who have an intimate knowledge of the portable restroom business to inform what’s most important. That’s why ServiceCore is easy to learn, offers full support, integrates with QuickBooks, and makes scheduling simple with drag-and-drop calendars. We even automatically optimize routes for drivers, and provide real-time inventory tracking.

Why do septic businesses choose ServiceCore over CRO Software Solutions?

ServiceCore makes drivers more efficient by reducing time spent on paperwork, avoiding routing issues, cutting down on wasted drive time, and tracking down overdue invoices. With a single system that manages everything in one place, you’ll save time and serve more customers.

Why do roll-off dumpster businesses choose ServiceCore over CRO Software Solutions?

Managing your roll-off business can often feel like dancing with a partner who hears different music. We make sure everyone—from the front office to drivers to billing—is dancing to the same beat. No more missed inventory. No more skipped exchanges. Just everyone being perfectly in sync.

Does ServiceCore integrate with QuickBooks?

ServiceCore is compatible with QuickBooks and offers two-way data synchronization. We are fully equipped to support data migration to ServiceCore. Our data specialists can also help you with data migration from other software platforms like CRO Software.

What types of businesses are not a good fit for ServiceCore?

ServiceCore is great for liquid waste or roll-off businesses that want to make their business more productive. If you’re in an industry outside of portable restrooms, septic, grease, or roll-off dumpsters CRO Software Solutions is a better choice.

How much does ServiceCore cost?

Our pricing structure accommodates a wide range of operators — from multi-truck companies to enterprise corporations with complex structures. ServiceCore is not the cheapest solution. Why? Because we provide the best training, support, and customer service out of any ServiceCore alternatives, and offer the best software that drives productivity for your business. The best way to get an exact price is to schedule a demo.
