Accounts Receivable Specialist

Chicago, IL 60611

Job ID: 21043 Industry: Accounts Receivable

SMS Assist is revolutionizing the facility services industry through its remarkable technology. Most large, multi-location chains rely heavily on local subcontractors to provide their facility maintenance services, like electrical, plumbing, mechanical repairs, floor and window cleaning, landscaping, snow removal, parking lot maintenance, and dozens of other services. Management responsibility for these services is often delegated to the operating units. As a result, significant opportunities to leverage technology, economies of scale, and subject matter expertise are lost. As a national integrator of cleaning and maintenance services with over 40, 000 unique customer sites under contract, SMS Assist helps customers reduce spending on facilities services an average of 20 percent, while maintaining or improving quality and providing radical transparency.

While our cutting-edge technology is unmatched in the industry, we recognize that our success depends upon the vision, creativity and passion of our employees. We are looking for talented individuals to join our team!
