Stewart from Northern Turf & Irrigation, Eltham, VIC
Hi to all at Service Central,
Just wanted to let you know that I am moving to Queensland, and will no longer be operating Northern Turf and Irrigation.
I was one of your original Providers; I signed up in 2005.
After just one year I stopped the very expensive local paper advertising I was doing and the even more expensive Yellow Pages marketing.
I received regular and relevant leads for jobs, and rarely suffered the "tyre-kicker" experience. I valued the fact that I was only quoting against no more than two other landscapers, and that they knew I was not doing cheap "cash" quotes.
My six year experience with Service Central was comfortable, affordable and profitable for me. You guys do a great job.

We at Pml Electrics would like to pass on to you guys at service central how happy we are with the customer service we get from you, I can honestly say that anytime we have a problem that you have always made the time to help us with the problem at hand.
Our account manager Gary is really good at working with us to help us move in the right direction and use the service to its full potential.
We find your system really works due to us being able to use the service to base our business around or use it as a backing to our main business, the opportunities are endless.
We would have no problem recommending you to other companies.

Leslie from Letac Drafting Services Pty Ltd, Mount Waverley, VIC
To Service Central & Gary Gupta,
I wish to congratulate you on the great service you have been providing me as a provider.
My current work load is approximately 90% generated by Service Central, in fact during the last few months I have had to expand my business due to the amount of work coming in from SC.
I have expanded from single room home based business to renting an office and hiring 2 draftsman and a reception.
I would certainly recommend Service Central and Gary to any new provider that may be thinking of joining, and would dearly like if SC would conduct a seminar so we could meet the originator and thanks him for his great idea.
Jackie Papa from Prolific Home Developments Pty Ltd, Viewbank, VIC
Hello, when we started setting up our business we investigated all avenues of advertising and initially were about to join a franchise until we stumbled across service central on the radio, so we looked into it further. We contacted service central, to arrange an appointment and a representative of the organisation met us, to discuss what service central is all about and what it can offer a business, compared to others out there. We were asked to take our time and think about it and went away reading all the statistics and information that was provided to us. After 1 week, we called the rep and arranged an appointment only this particular day we signed up which was back in 2007. Initially upon signing up, after a 6 month period we thought, "Oh my gosh what have we done" as we were encountering one problem after another and the rep/account manager was no longer responding to our calls. However at this point upon contacting management (Janine in head office) they were ever so humble and apologetic but most importantly so professional in the way they handled and rectified the situation with out causing interruptions to our business.
Now 4 years later we are still with service central and have found they are exactly what every business needs. The way we look at it is, it is all up to you and how much you would like your business to grow because I tell you, what service central offer, as far as ongoing support, training, affordable lead fees and the constant changes in bettering what they are able to provide is excellent.
We now have for the last 2 or so years a fantastic account manager to which we thank for his ongoing support and assistance when required but again I believe it all stems from management who have taken the time in training and educating Gary, to be an honest, helpful and supporting rep/accounts manager. As we have found, service central to be useful and to our benefit over the years and in no way a bad investment, we also believe that we will continue being a provider/member with service central and support them as long as service central keeps up the ongoing excellence that they have built up. I believe that the more people that they train to the likes of Gary, there would be no reason why more and more providers would not sign up.
Our commitment to service central is we only advertise through you and no one else and we shall continue to do so and support you.
All I can say is Service Central we thank you and keep up the good work.
To Gary we would also would like to thank you for your honesty, kind words and good spirits always willing to assist, keep up the good work.
Sergio from Deiana Build, Templestowe Lower, VIC
Deianabuild is now in its second year with using Service Central. Service Central has provided a steady flow of qualified leads which has help me grow my business. The Service Central web site also allows me to scan the open jobs list for additional leads, once I have logged on. The web site has the added benefit of helping me manage the leads I have accepted, tracking and monitoring my lead conversion performance.
Service Central has also provided me with an Account Manager, Gary Gupta. Gary is my first port of call, if I have any quires or concerns. I have found Gary to be very honest person who is easy to get along with. Whenever I have had any issues, Gary has gone the extra mile to accommodate my requests and deal with those issues professionally.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Service Central and Gary Gupta to any Company who wants to grow their business.
Philippe from Iconic Direct Pty Ltd, Middle Park, VIC
I have been an active provider with Service Central for over 3 years. It took me a little while to get the feel how the system worked and use it to maximum effect. The proportion of Service Central leads and work I do each year has grown to a point that now, 75% of all my work is through Service Central or repeat business from customers originally obtained through the group. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone considering joining the group.
John from White Dove Cleaning Service P/l, Keysborough, VIC
I've used local papers before, but this doesn't work as well as Service Central. We've experienced good growth.
Jayson from Viking Structures, Mitcham, VIC
