Installed Mpulse 7 with the specified training in two sites. All is working perfectly. The company recently introduced Mpulse 8 but had too many bugs and switched back to 7 within several days.
Ease to use
Need better debugging of new software
Mpulse 7 is a great product and all our staff enjoys using it.

We purchased this software for our company to serve all of our building maintenance and ticketing needs. We also use the software for all IT related issues and will be expanding it's use to other departments in the near future. It is very intuitive and easy to use. Adding records and tracking maintenance and IT issues as well as future services is very easy. It has an excellent database feature to allow tracking of all assets. I would highly recommend this software.
Christine from 2506 LLC
It is easy to manage maintenance schedules and track work orders. We use to review all the maintenance for the building and scheduled contractors and vendors.
The reporting part could be a little more user friendly.
MPulse works very well with tracking maintenance and work orders. We also use to budget costs for building maintenance.
Robert from Electric Motor and Contracting
Makes organizing the work so each person involved can see what is happening
Some times the software is slow to load takes a couple of tries to submit work requests at times
very help full in tracking equipment issues and cost to maintain
Tracy from Portland French Bakery

Instructional videos and customer support product functionality.
It has a fairly long learning curve and updating the screen is a little slow.
Use the product and take notes of good and bad topics.
James from Sealtron
I do not like this system but the vendor is very supportive.
To hard to run and very time consuming. Need a secretary. I have myself and 2 maintenance guys. This system is for bigger corporations and I think you forgot the smaller guys that does need all that stuff. We had the 3.5 vision first and really liked it. Then it was no longer be supported so we moved up to the 7.0 and hate it.
Make it simple for a maintenance guy to enter info when done working on the machine and close the work orders. Be able to find that info for when the next time the machine goes back down.
I will not be renewing are contract this year. I am looking for other options.
John from Loker Student Union
I like that it trakes work orders and request and you can print out reports.
I did like version 6 a lot but like the options in version 7 and it just takes time to set it up and get used to all the functions
Go through the entire system and look at every function and what it can do.
Len from Rusnak Auto Group
Customer service and support are always helpful and patient.
Training sessions are not user focused. They should listen to you when you tell them your needs, then train you accordingly.
Make a list of your what you want to accomplish, who within the organization needs to do what, and how you want the communication process to flow
Ronald from The Bryn Mawr Trust Company
I like the work order system, and how it flows through the entire system. Our employees that need to utilize the software to generate a work order like it mush better than our old email process. It is easy to use, and has a lot of good snapshot graphical reports. I like the tracking of Preventative maintenance, and all of our building equipment.
We have a lot of buildings, and some of the graphical reports get squeezed when showing values on repair and maintenance, and are not easy to read.
Just make sure you get demonstrations on each software you are looking at. Compare ease of use, pricing, reporting capabilities, and tracking of equipment/ preventative maintenance. List all pros and cons, and choose the best one based on your own business environment. Some packages have way too many bells and whistles that you would mostly not use, and pay a premium for. MPulse met all of our requirements, and was at the right pricing point.
Milton from Eddy Packing Co., Inc.
Specialty: Food and Beverage
Ease of use, excellent support team.
The reporting options are what I like least
Ask questions about support after the sale. Most anyone can sell a software product but the most useful part of any software is the support team behind it.
Steve from Friends Church
Specialty: Religious Institutions
Besides the ease of working with the software, the initial training and support as well as the "Tips and Tricks" monthly webinars have proven invaluable to help me learn and use best practices in making a smooth transition for my staff both in inputing and responding to work orders.
The only thing that I don't like it that the program kicks me out every once in a while.
I looked at four different programs before selection Mpulse. They had the modules I needed and were the most willing to work with me to make sure it worked just like I needed.
Greg from Madison State Hospital
The company staff are extremely well versed in their product and can show you how to leverage the software to do what you need the software to do.
I prefer a user manual I can actually read away from the system. The integrated help tool will usually walk you through a lot of things, but sometimes I prefer to touch a book and read on a product without the computer in the neighborhood.
If you already have a product you are using, make note of the features and ask the perspective vendors for specific details on how their product completed the task you now perform on the current system. A good salesman will give you plenty of help in understanding their product.
Paul from WYGC
It's rare that I call with a question and can't either get help on the line immediately or within a few hours. Better yet: The persons with whom I speak are always pleasant and willing to take whatever time is needed to help us with our questions.
Will close suddenly from time to time - not certain is this could be an connectivity problem but it doesn't seem that way.
Speak to others who have used whatever software you're looking at - they will know how well the system works in their situation and will likely also be able to comment on customer support.
John from Transdev Services, Inc
Web based, I can access anywhere and any time. I can input in the field, at home or at my desk.
Data input is not always intuitive, can be a little intimidating for people who have never used a program like this.
Discuss with MPulse exactly what you want to get out of the software (what level of reporting and documentation you require). Choose the level that best suits your needs to start with.
Brian from Summit Agricultural Group
The customer service is very helpful and responds quickly. The reports are customizable, we can customize on our own.
The system currently does not communicate with our accounting system, ie purchase orders, inventory
Make sure you know what you want out of the system, basically make sure you know what you want for reports and what information you want to get out of system.
Leslie from Dish Network Manufacturing
One of the best aspects of MPulse is working with their great team. The implementation with our company has been a challenge but the resources on the MPulse side have been indispensable in ensuring our issues were all addressed individually and that a solution was found. They have never acted as though our questions or issues were a burden and they have shown immense flexibility, honesty, and transparency in working with us at every stage. Because of their help, the MPulse software has successfully remained at DISH and we continue to find new ways to use it to benefit our business.
The built in reporting that MPulse offers has never been useful to our business. We actively export data out of MPulse into a separate data manipulation/reporting software in order to get the information we need out of MPulse. While MPulse does offer customized reports but they would have to be developed at an additional cost.
We would have benefitted from being able to try MPulse prior to making a purchase. Our business needs are pretty unique and different from those of many of MPulse's existing customers and there were challenges on both sides trying to get the software where it needed to be to support our structure.
Dani from Montana Precision Products
This product is reliable and the vendor is always able for assistance.
Sometimes difficult to extract reports from. May be a user issue rather than product issue.
My recommendation would to be use the system to its full capability. We currently only use it for our preventive management system.
Ricardo from Treehouse
The product is easy to use. Also "The Nuggets" training material is top quality. The service department is quick to answer any questions.
The reports some times are not easy to set up. You need to call customer service to help you to set up any report.
My only recomendation is to make sure you "HOST" the software in your own server, if you use Mpulse server your system will be very slow and "time out". But if you host the system in your local server, the system works great. You only need to have 2 or 3 meetings with your IT group to make sure that they understand the importance of hosting the program in the local server.
Raymond from Acorn Engineering Company
Expedites the workflow easier & organized. Easier to control work orders & cut down time on job to job basis.
For some reason it kicks you out of MPulse & sends you onto Log In window when you are using software. Haven't found a solution or the reason why it kicks you out.
Quick response on support when having technical problems & user friendly
Doyle from Kice Industries
Support highly responsive. Product configurable to our needs.
Have found nothing so far that would be considered "least liked".
Make full use of support--they will help tremendously.
