Pocomos is a cloud-based field service software package for the pest control industry. We demoed the software, researched user reviews, and watched video tutorials to dive deep into Pocomos’s functionality, pricing, and user experience. 

What we found: Although Pocomos has a classic design and lacks some of the bells and whistles found in pricier packages, it includes all the features needed to manage a pest control company efficiently. Competitive customer-based price tiers provide incredible value to small companies and startups.

Pocomos Key Features 

Pocomos logo large

Pocomos provides a web application for administrators and a mobile application for field workers. Administrative features are unavailable on the mobile app, but the web app is fully responsive and will work fine on a tablet or phone’s web browser. 

It has a simple lackluster design that is intuitive and easy to use. Although it doesn’t have some of the features found in higher-end software packages, it still includes everything you need to manage your pest control company, including:

Customer Management

Pocomos has a CRM with functionality including:

  • Bulk emailing
  • Payment tracking
  • Automated communication
  • In-app customer messaging
  • E-contracts
  • Message templates

Adding a New Customer

Adding new customers is a quick and intuitive process.

Step 1: In the top-left corner, click the Add Customer button.

The Add Customer button redirects you to the add customer screen. A Pocomos representative will help you customize the input fields to fit your organizational needs.

Step 2: Fill in the customer’s service address and basic information.  Each customer must have a unique email address.

Bulk Emails

The Pocomos CRM includes a handy bulk messaging tool, allowing you to send unlimited mass emails at no extra charge. Before sending the email, you can filter customers by a cornucopia of categories, including:

  • Sales status
  • Job status
  • Last service date

When appropriately implemented, bulk messaging is a highly effective marketing strategy. Therefore, I was pleased to see no limits or extra fees related to this feature.

Automated Communication

Automated emails are customizable and included in your monthly subscription price. However, there is an extra fee to use text functionality (including automated texts and in-app messaging)—$3 per month plus 3 cents per message.

Visual Routing and Scheduling 

Save time and money using Pocomos’ visual routing and scheduling tools. These tools include:

  • Route optimization
  • Appointment reminders
  • Drag-and-drop calendar

Visual Routing

Pocomos provides visual routing tools with Google Maps integration to plan routes quickly. At a glance, you see which customers are close together, then assign the addresses to technicians. 

Visual routing tools

You can reduce daily drive time by optimizing each technician’s route.


View and modify your schedule with a user-friendly drag-and-drop calendar. Completed jobs contain a green check mark, and jobs in progress are highlighted with a green box. In addition, you can color code your calendar and apply filters to visualize appointments of interest.

Automated Reminders

Your customers will never forget you’re coming because they automatically receive appointment reminders. 

Chemical Tracking

Every pest control company must be EPA and state compliant. When choosing pest control software, chemical tracking functionality is a must! 

Create chemical usage templates that technicians can use via a mobile device to record their chemical usage.

To access chemical usage templates in the side menu, go to: 

Settings > Configuration > Chem Sheet Templates

Billing and Payments

Pocomos includes many features to facilitate billing and payments. Although the software does not integrate with QuickBooks, you can export data to use in Excel or Google Sheets.

Creating Estimates

Pocomos allows you to create and send pest control service estimates. 

Step 1: Navigate to Estimates in the right navigation panel.

First, select a service from the customized drop-down menu. Next, choose a tax rate. Then, fill in the cost and quantity to get a total price. You may add a description, estimate terms, notes, and discounts.

Continue to add as many items and services as needed.

Step 5: Click the Save Changes button.

Estimates can be created in the field or the office and are automatically added to the customer account view.

Creating Bills and Invoices

From the customer’s account page, navigate to Billing Information > Bills.

From the Bills view, you can add:

  • Jobs
  • Invoices
  • Line items


As any good field service software should, Pocomos includes an autopay feature. When customers opt into autopay, you can charge them:

  • After each job
  • Monthly
  • In installments


You can create discounts and promotions. These discounts can be a specific dollar amount or a percentage and can auto-renew with contract renewal. However, customers can’t select a discount or enter a coupon code. Instead, an administrator must manually add each discount.

Payment Processing

For payment processing, Pocomos uses a Utah-based company called Zift. Zift has very competitive processing rates, as seen in the table below.  

Payment TypeFee
Credit/Debit2.9% + 30 cents

Customer Portal

Your customers will have access to a customer portal where they can view service and billing details, including:

  • Service agreements
  • Upcoming services
  • Payment information

Customers can also:

  • Pay a bill
  • Opt into autopay
  • Change billing information

The customer portal has a sleek modern design and is very user-friendly. 

Door-to-Door Sales Tools

Pocomos has helped pest control companies with door-to-door sales for almost ten years. The developers behind the software deliver their experience to you via a door-to-door sales module that eliminates the need for clipboards, pens, and papers. Instead, sales reps only need a mobile device. The representative I spoke to said most of the field workers use iPads.

Features include:

  • Statistics dashboard
  • Scheduling
  • Bulletin board (announcements and incentives)
  • Territory management tools
  • Lead management
  • Sales rep rankings and scoreboard
  • Commission management tools

As a result, you can efficiently manage a team of door-to-door sales reps and quickly implement strategies to motivate your team.  

Training and Support

Before attending the software demo, I researched user reviews. The reviews praised Pocomos for support, training, and customer care. Thus, I walked into the demo expecting excellent support and training, and I was not disappointed. 

Your monthly subscription comes with free technical and customer support, including:

  • In-app chat (Average response time is under 10 minutes)
  • An extensive online knowledge base
  • Phone support
  • Video tutorials

The user reviews back up Pocomos’s claim to quickly and effectively help customers use the software.

Pocomos Pricing

Pocomos has a competitively priced, contract-free, customer-based model. As your company grows, so does the cost of this software. As a result, small and startup companies can get the software at a very reasonable price. Please see the pricing table below.

TierNumber of CustomersPrice
Starter0-50$59 per month
Small51-300$139 per month
Medium301-500$175 per month
Enterprise 1501-900$199 per month

Additional Fees

Your subscription price includes all features, except texting, and there is a one-time setup fee of $300. All payment processors charge a cost, and Pocomos uses a processor with very competitive rates.


There were no public promotions or discounts at the time of my software demo. However, I asked the sales rep if there were any “promotions or sales,” and he offered me the first month free (Starter Tier).

Alternatives to Pocomos

There are many options for pest control management software. Here are a few alternatives to Pocomos:

  • FieldRoutesFieldRoutes is high-end field service software made to handle recurring services. It specializes in pest control, lawn care, and pool maintenance.
  • Briostack: Briostack also caters to the pest control industry. It has a per-user pricing model, which can be much more costly than Pocomos. However, Briostack has a more modern look and offers some extra features.
  • Jobber: Jobber is an affordable field service software that works best with one-off services. You can get a free trial, a great way to test-drive the software and see if it works for your business.
  • Service Autopilot: This featured-packed software package can work for most field service companies. Although it starts at an affordable price, gaining access to all the features can get costly.    
  • GorillaDesk: GorillaDesk is known for superb customer support and specializes in the pest control industry. The software charges by features and by the number of routes. Although the starting price is relatively affordable, adding routes will increase the cost exponentially.
  • Arborgold: Arborgold is a feature-rich CRM that specializes in lawn care, tree service, pest control, and landscaping businesses.

Our Verdict
