When the air conditioning goes down in an office in the middle of summer, who will you call? No, it’s not the Ghostbusters. 

There’s actually a company committed to fixing that kind of problem. We are going to take a look at an HVAC company that is a full-service contractor that focuses on providing MEP services, Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing. They provide services for the industrial and commercial sectors, in addition to professional engineering services. 

So if you have any problems of the sort, they can work on fixing them for you. If you need it, they can send a service technician to inspect the unit and make repairs if necessary. It all seems relatively simple for the HVAC company. 

But how can they manage it all? How does a technician know where to go and at what time? How can they see if a job is urgent or if they can schedule it for later if they’re already going to be in that area? After all, if you’re going back and forth that can be a waste of time and resources.

They have Sage 100 to manage items like operations, finance, invoicing, payroll, inventory management, etc. They thought that was enough. They could use a variety of apps and paper invoices to manage their field service. But the thing with paper is that it can get confusing quite quickly, and you can lose track of important information or customers.

What if the company had a client that needed multiple repairs or installations across different buildings or homes? How would they check to see which one had been done and which still needed work? Not to mention a way to properly track hours, parts used, etc. 

That’s where Salesforce Field Service Management (FSM) comes in, but what exactly is it, and what does it do? It is a tool designed to make your job so much simpler because it allows you a way to get technicians to fix your services. It’s a truly fascinating and effective system. The HVAC company can do everything in FSM, and it keeps their service technicians from getting confused about which work order is which. 

When you are working long hours in the middle of a burning summer, your greatest ally is the air conditioner. But what happens if it breaks? There’s no way any work would actually get done. Because if your employees are annoyed and overheated, it’s just not a good combination. Plus there are computers, servers, and more that could suffer in the heat. So not only does tech need to fix the A/C for the employees and managers, but also the technology that could run hot and potentially break down. So the customer will contact the HVAC company, who will then check the Salesforce FSM calendar to see who is available. 

The dispatcher at Somatic can create a work order in Field Service Management and send one of their technicians to the building. While at the building’s HVAC systems, she can create a Work Order and identify the problem. While fixing the issue, she could keep track of the time and parts used with the TimeSheet feature on her mobile device. This is a great feature of Field Service Management — you can check everything from your phone, something that is extremely useful while you are on the road.

And there’s also the option of TimeSheet, which is a way to log in how much time you worked, which task you did, what parts you used, etc. You no longer have to rely on the use of paper and your own memory. Something that can fail us when we need it the most — not to mention that the paper can get lost. 

Before she leaves, the office management company asks if the technician can visit two other buildings they manage to check on their respective air conditioning systems; then the technician can create a new Work Order for each location and drive over to both buildings to see how things are running. She will use a new TimeSheet in each Work Order to track her time and any parts needed.

And with the help of Commercient’s SYNC the data can be automatically sent to Sage 100 from FSM to generate payrolls for the technicians, so they can be paid for their services. 

The way it works is that Commercient SYNCs the data from Salesforce Field Service Management to Sage 100, so the HVAC company can properly invoice the office management company for the labor and parts used for each of the three buildings. There is no need to be confused about which building is which, since an ID will be created to identify the correct building, with the correct job and parts.

The techs can also look at their schedule in the morning and throughout the day to see when and where they’re going to do a service. There’s even a map, so they don’t have to leave the Salesforce Field Service Management app. Because everything they need is already there. They can know if it’s urgent or not, what parts are needed, and which were used, and most importantly they can put in the hours they worked so they can get paid, all of which can be easily found on their phone in the app.

Salesforce Field Service Management and Sage 100 have the information, Commercient SYNCS them together. It’s truly a smart match to have your company flow as it should.

Hotsy is North America’s number one name in cleaning equipment. Based in Des Moines, Iowa, they specialize in distributing and manufacturing high-quality industrial pressure washers. The company has over 40 years of experience in providing its customers with insight, training, support, and service for their particular cleaning requirements.

As leaders in their field, Hotsy Cleaning Systems sales required a powerful CRM. Therefore, they upgraded their sales system to Salesforce and Sage 100 in addition to barcoding from Gimbal Barcoding to better track inventory.


Hotsy Cleaning Systems began using Act! CRM for their tasks, but as they grew they noticed that it wasn’t a clear way for it to communicate with their Sage 100 ERP. So they moved to a superior sales system: they chose Salesforce, the #1 Customer Relationship Management software.

Sage held all of their accounting data and Act! was their CRM software. Prior to moving to Salesforce and SYNC, it would take time if a field rep was trying to log into either system to find the data, and would have to call back into the home office for assistance.

The teams at Hotsy sought a more effective CRM that could meet their needs. Then, the sales and service needed to be able to easily access information in Sage 100 ERP and Salesforce.

Hotsy required a sales system solution that could integrate their ERP and Salesforce and that would help them access real-time data along with parts that have been barcoded, to help track inventory, warranties, sales, service, and more. They needed to be more efficient on keeping track of parts both sold and used for service. 

Besides, Hotsy knew that in order to remain leaders in their field they needed to take the company to the next step. The team also wanted a powerful system that could successfully lead them into phase 2 of their sales strategy: securely accept payments at the time of service. 

Hotsy would have to invoice, and payment could take days or even weeks and that was not acceptable in order to provide efficient customer service. This was a step back that no leader company wants to take. 


To help enhance sales and customer service, Hotsy implemented Salesforce CRM and found out it was the superior system they needed to boost their sales.

They also relied on Commercient SYNC, the #1 data integration platform for sales, to connect their Sage 100 ERP with Salesforce to easily access information between the two systems.

“With the Sage 100 information being pulled into Salesforce [via SYNC], I was able to give a little more structure to it, a little more definition, and make it easier for people to have access to data on the go, as well as being able to find what they need,” explained Patrick Foy, Technical Architect at Hotsy.

As a leader company, Foy and his team also decided to work with Commercient and Gimbal Barcoding to barcode their devices and parts. They were sure that this was the right solution to become more efficient when reps are in the field making sales, in addition to being able to track parts better from both the sales and service side.

Commercient also became the solution the Hotsy team was seeking for their phase 2: take payments more efficiently at the time of service without wasting time.

That’s why Hotsy’s next step was using Commercient’s Sync2Pay solution to take immediate and secure payment in the field and become more productive. By making the software choices that suited their needs, Hotsy’s objective was to save critical time by having their systems integrated.

“It will be saving approximately, I would say, five business days from time paperwork is inputted, to the time it’s turned over and going out as an invoice. Which is making a net 30, technically a net 35 in some cases, or longer. So now we’re actually going to be within our nets.”, as Foy estimated.

Commercient and Gimbal Barcoding helped to barcode all their parts and pressure washing systems, with a connection to their ERP and CRM.

Hotsy now has a more efficient sales team on the field. Now they save a lot of time when selling something. “They’ll be able to scan it, import it into an order or work order, sync it up through Commercient, and into our Sage system and we’ll have the sales order in the system. They can take payment on it and everything.”, according to Foy.

Commercient SYNC did also wonders for inventory being synced into Salesforce

“We have people out in the field that will be able to look up a part number, see if they have it on their vehicle. Also what other warehouse [that part] is in. There is no more of that need to, ‘Okay what’s the part number?’ And take the time to look it up, saving, minutes, which didn’t seem like a lot, but minutes over a day, over a week, over a month, over a year…” 

As a result of choosing Commercient SYNC for their data sales integration, Hotsy is more productive and customer-centered mainly because of the benefits of ERP and CRM integration. 

Now the employees have more access to real-time data such as orders, invoicing and more.

With SYNC integration, Hotsy Cleaning Systems has all the right tools to invest in their customers, make them a priority and save valuable time. The company has already spent 40 years providing its clients, both individuals, and businesses, with the insight and training for their cleaning requirements. And now Hotsy is on the right path to stellar customer service.

There are over 85 systems integrated by Commercient, including Sage, Acumatica, SYSPRO, Epicor, SAP. The systems “talk” to each other resulting in an increase in productivity, just as Hotsy found out.

Sage 100 is an industry-leading ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software that helps you manage your manufacturing, distribution, and service industry processes, from beginning to end. It helps run your company’s operations, so you can grow revenues, reduce costs, and increase profitability.

This ERP is feature-rich, dependable, and highly customizable. With purpose-built modules designed to meet the needs of manufacturing and distribution.

Salesforce is a cloud-based customer relationship management platform for supercharging every part of your company that interacts with customers. This includes marketing, sales, commerce, service, and more. Salesforce connects all your teams around one platform, with apps such as Sales Cloud, Marketing Cloud, Service Cloud, etc. This ensures every employee can interact with your customers like a single company, not a series of disconnected departments.

However, having multiple databases, such as your ERP and CRM, can result in a cluttered view of business processes and disjointed operations. Data within Sage 100 and Salesforce systems remains siloed, and your teams may miss vital information needed to make critical decisions.

In this day and age, integrating you business systems, data, processes, and functions is becoming commonplace and advantageous. When your systems all work together seamlessly, everyone in your business can be on the same page, become more efficient, and have time to do more meaningful work. If you’re leveraging Sage and Zoho CRM as your ERP and CRM systems, we’ll show you how to get the best of both with the Commercient SYNC Integration Platform.

Spend Less Time Entering Data

With Zoho CRM, you can easily track sales, client data, and more, while Sage reduces your reliance on spreadsheets, simplifies reporting and streamlines your core accounting activities. Commercient SYNC connects the two systems and gives you a way to integrate important customer data between your ERP and CRM, so your sales team can consistently provide your clients with custom, valued experiences.

Rather than entering duplicate information into each system, SYNC allows you to enter it just once for it to populate in both Zoho CRM and Sage. This allows you to save time each day, run operations more efficiently, and focus on more meaningful tasks. It also reduces the possibility of human error.

Connect Your Business

Not only will you spend half the time entering data, but by integrating your Sage and Zoho CRM with SYNC, customers, contacts, inventory items, sales orders, invoice history, customer sales history, and much more, are all automatically synchronized. And with one connected system based in the cloud, all members of your company can enter data at a single-entry point which can be accessed from any employee device, at any time and from anywhere. This eliminates the problem of possible duplicate entries, and the time it can take to correct.

Delight Your Customers With Quicker Response Times and Accurate Quotes

Integrating Sage with Zoho CRM will also provide your salespeople with a 360-degree view of your customers from within Zoho. Additionally, your sales team will have the visibility from within Zoho CRM to see each customer’s sales history information without having to access Sage.

In the back office, your Sage system streamlines your processes, helping you with inventory control, warehouse management, financial consolidation, and monitoring overall performance, while your sales and customer service teams are able to give intelligent feedback through their Zoho CRM screens.

Additionally with SYNC Integration for Sage and Zoho CRM, your sales reps can enter orders themselves both anytime and anywhere on their laptops, iPads or mobile phones, which means that the speed at which orders get into the system is dramatically increased.
