Test a fully functional and available sample of the Web Enabled Service Request form here. Have your clients submit detailed requests via the web, and do without the hassle of playing phone tag for the missing information common to call in requests.  Use of the functional online Service Request form requires that your website be hosted on the most common type of web server, a Unix/Linux server.  Your host must support CGI/PERL and the common PERL sendmail function.   The 2 files included (the submit request form, and the resulting emailed request form) can be easily edited to customize the form with your business name and information using a text editor like notepad. The customizations are numbered in the file with specific directions to help you along, and shouldn't take more than 10-20 minutes to fully customize. Your host will have more information on how to upload the files onto your host server, so that you can have them functional within minutes.  We'll even do the work of minor customizations and uploading for you if you get stuck!
