What are Service Plans?
Service plans, also commonly referred to as maintenance plans or service agreements, are contracts that define an ongoing service arrangement between your business and your customers. Customers make payments to ensure preventative maintenance, or as a form of insurance should an issue arise, and your business performs dedicated visits and services detailed within the agreement.
