We have been using the NetFacilities for a few months and this is really proving to be a positive system for our daily operations. NetFacilities has become one of our most important vendors. We use their full suite tools within their software. Additionally, their offerings have improved our efficiency, greatly improved our communication with internally with staff and externally with customers and this makes us feel like our whole business is more streamlined.

Pros

One other aspect is the word-of-mouth compliments that we get from our technicians in the field. They love the software’s mobile capabilities. If I had to do it all over again, they would be my first pick!

Cons

Recommendations

As with anything that you would evaluate, make sure you have all of the information needed to make an educated decision. Make sure you look into multiple vendors who offer the product that you are looking for. Make sure to evaluate the company, the product and the people that are working with you throughout the evaluation process. In the case with NetFacilities, they received our business because of the CEO. All though there were several good products and companies to chose from. His knowledge, passion, excitement and confidence in his product/company as well as the fact that he cared about my companies interests and what we were trying to accomplish with the product, made the decision to go with NetFacilities an easy decision to make.

There's no tool to isolate a specific group of properties in order to see any requests that are input for any particular property (facility/office) in that group. This may be available for a high level administrator but not for a standard level property manager account.

The format is very easy to understand and easy to access. It's all done from the front page, and the operations part can be done from two pages. There's no drilling down to drill down again. Our trainer was very knowledgeable and patient.

The part that is always hard is filling out the vendor and inventory sections. This is true with all MMSs. But someone has to do it, and this one was easier than the other three that I have had experience with. If I had to do it again, I would probably pay the vendor to do that for me.

Recommendations

Compare this to other systems, and the difference is really obvious that this is the best system.

It made us think about our system flow. It also challenged us. I'm still waiting to go live due to errors.

Pros

I love the potential to streamline work flow using a phone. The guys are excited about the digital app. They want the app to include more features - as in they don't want to need a computer. I'm not sure how realistic that is as a wish. I would also love an offline option that can sync for new records only! That way the guys wouldn't have to rely on cell phone coverage which can be spotty at times.

Cons

The number of glitches we find and because we rely on work orders to invoice it's been difficult to set up a full process. Many situations of two steps forward one back. It's hard to keep staff motivated when every step has to have troubleshooting completed. I had to give low value for money because of the length of time we've taken to vet the software before we can go live.

It helps organize our work orders. I love the portability with the phone apps. The inventory system is taking some time to implement, but it will keep important stores on our shelves and our property running more efficiently when done. The PM system is also taking us some time to implement, but we will be able to get rid of our clunky paper system which isn't working that well.

Pros

Cost vs features. The user interface for submitting a work order is very easy and self explanatory. We are still finding new features that are useful to us. The company is responsive to questions and features are morphing into higher utility since the last major upgrade to the software. There are very few you can't get there from here roadblocks and those that I have found seem to be disappearing - if you let them know they are there. It is completely web based - no software to manage here. No user limits. Easy user permission changes. We control most of the setup - I don't have to upload something and wait for it to be formatted. Customer service is helpful.

Cons

The menu interface is a bit clunky and can take awhile to remember where exactly that rarely used menu is. If you are in the middle of a task and you find that you have to add something to a menu, you lose what you are currently working on - that is changing - some menus have add buttons now. The help menu could be more helpful, but it is improving with time for those of us who don't want to pick up the phone.

Netfacilities has helped organize all facility related PM's. Gone are the days of tracking my items using elaborate spreadsheets etc.

Pros

It is very robust. Once configured I've had only occassional, minor issues.

Cons

It would be so nice to have reminder emails sent to assignees when workorders are over due. Maybe somehting the assigner can configure, like send reminder once per day or once per week. Something like that.

Over the past year we have used NetFacilities to convert from our paper/voicemail requests to a structured and historical database that allows for review and a proactive way to managing requests.

For example, the preventative maintenance section has allowed us to protect our current assets while creating 55+ PMs that were never looked at until things broke or we were out of compliance. This has completely changed the dynamic of the organization and the expectations are now exceeded.

The support from the conversion team was top notch allowing for us to bring order to chaos!

Pros

Flexibility and tracking

Cons

Have had trouble with the mobile app working consistently.

Simply put, NetFacilities is great software. NetFacilities helped us to streamline our services for both our clients and vendors. The amount of visibility and organization it provides is incredibly helpful and we can keep a closer eye on the maintenance of our factories equipment. Another important fact is that each of our four users adopted and currently utilize the software. No matter how good the software is, if users don't like, it won't be cost-effective.

Additionally, the NetFacilities Support Team was extremely customer focused and helped us troubleshoot our initial concerns and adopt some custom solutions. Thank you!!

Pros

The product is very flexible.

There are several issues/features missing or incomplete with this software.
- Sort by date does not process years correctly under the Reports by Schedule
- Mobile software does not allow you to add "Labor Notes" to work orders.
- No Reports include the "Labor Notes" of work orders.
Overall the system is not intuitive at all and I have not found the "Help" tab helpful in answering any question I had.

Pros

It does combine an Inventory with facility maintenance tracking.

Cons

Not Intuitive. Hard to use.

Been using the software for a couple of years now and it really suits our needs. Fantastic customer support! If there was a module to add budgets so we could code our work orders to specific budgets it would be perfect!

Pros

PM integrated with regular break down work orders and the autopilot feature.

Cons

Missing Budget module and when we print work orders the "work order printed" should be in the audit trail of the printed copy.

While the software may technically be robust (from a database programmer's point of view), it is cumbersome and inefficient from the user's point of view. For example to add a part to inventory takes required data entry into over 15 separate data fields, most of which should be autofilled by default, or at least on a grid entry system to prevent having to jump to multiple tabs. Running reports is spotty at best, trying to find maintenance history on assets. For our second facility, we have moved to a different platform which is much more robust, yet user friendly. We are only staying with netfacilities for our first location because of the maintenance history.

Pros

It is technically robust

Cons

Difficult to use, cumbersome to add new parts or enter inventory. Reports are complicated and difficult to find required information.

Advice to Others

They need to have focus groups of users provide detailed feedback, then rewrite the software interface from the ground up. While the backend might be fine, the front end is a waste of users time.

Marginal at best. Everything was working reasonably well until their "improvement" rollout last year. As with many rollouts I have my suspicions that the programmers didn't really get a lot of feedback from the actual end users (you know like MS does). There are plenty of annoying little things that you would think intuitively would be recognized by the programmers such as: Discussion block does no good if you do not get the attention of ALL staff on how to use it. Sometimes critical additions to an email get lost in the audit trail ALL discussions should immediately process an email to at least the administrative group overseeing the work orders. Window does not fit in screen widow even though resolutions is set normally and at 100%. When going to the WO queue we always see closed work orders, Once I close them I want them gone. We will be going to a different system this year

For the most part this is a very good and reliable system. It could use more options for customizable fields and customized reporting. It would also be useful to have layers of task types, so we could drill down to the appropriate service type, without having to scroll through the full list. Being able to batch update some of the user or site data would also be useful, such as distributions. Having to edit individual distributions for each service type, since the bulk of our work goes to a single group.

Pros

Consistent uptime and performance. Visually simple and easy to navigate.

Cons

Lack of customization. Multiple steps that confuse new users and require significant training. Inability to upload data or batch edit.

Advice to Others

The software would provide an additional benefit if we could track labor hours in a timesheet format. Properly designed, we could then upload that data to our payroll system and eliminate the redundant steps of a separate payroll tracking program.

I manage everything you see at 9, soon to be 10, facilities across a 50 mile radius. The appearance of buildings, the air temperature and humidity inside all of the buildings, lighting, doors, driveways, etc. If you can see or feel it, it's my responsibility. I was doing alright at managing it all by myself and a few vendors, but at some point the "things-to-do" stopped making it onto the list because the list would never get done. I realized I had reached my limits and needed something else that could keep up with everything going on everywhere, because my brain was just maxed out.

In comes NET Facilities. I checked out a few other programs and they didn't have things set up the way I needed them to be done. I manage things and equipment and assign jobs to people. The instant help I received to get everything set up and in the system was invaluable! I was able to go at my pace for the set up and anytime I had a question or wondered how to do something it was great knowing that help was a phone call or email away and I would get to interact with 1.) A REAL LIVE AMERICAN PERSON 2.) THE SAME PERSON I TALKED TO LAST TIME. Every time I talked with my assigned set up person I referred to the system as a "monster-of-a-program" and the set up as "feeding-the-friendly-monster.

I and my staff have been using the system for almost a year now and we are all thrilled with how well the system works and the ease of use. At any one time I can see all of the things that need to be done, what is getting done, what is not getting done, who jobs are assigned to, who made the jobs, priority levels for those jobs, etc. I even have vendors who have told me they really like my system because it makes their job easier. They get a detailed email when there is service work to do telling them the following: what facility, where at that facility is the issue, what the problem is, who made the work order, and they can see past work that was done for that item in question.

Did I mention the system can create invoices, track repair costs, inventory use, ordering and reordering, track repair times for employees, and on and on it goes. I'm so glad I found NET Facilities! It has only been a year of using it, but it has already paid for itself in effectiveness. I can't believe I didn't find it sooner.

Pros

Super detailed and easy to use. You can track anything anywhere and see ALL history of repairs done to any single item. The real people support was a tremendous benefit to the system and getting it up and going. My employees love it, my vendors love it, my accounts payable department loves it. I can't say enough good about it!

Cons

There is absolutely no cons to the system. Getting set up is challenging but there is a tremendous amount of help with that and you get to put all of the set-up work on the Net Facilities staff, who does it for you.

NetFacilities is a really powerful tool for asset management. We originally signed up for this service to utilize it as a work order management tool for our company, but gradually began using the other features. With the amount of tradeshows that we handle, we began implementing the asset management functionality to keep track of our inventory and equipment and now I couldn't imagine still using our old system.

Pros

The software is really intuitive. Our staff relies on technology for nearly every facet of our business and NetFacilities fit right in to our processes.

NetFacilities is a little touch and go at first and is not totally customizable but works very well for most. I recommend it for all who want a need/want detailed information on their work orders and reports. There are many facets of the program that will pertain to and enhance one's workflow.

There are some good attributes and one of the best features is being mobile friendly! a great asset for staff who carry cell phones - the work is sent directly to them 24/7. The reports are a little quirky at first but easily navigable and output can be done several ways ie: excel, pdf, etc.

Support is good, the response is within normal time and they make it a point to keep you abreast of progress in fixing the problem you are experiencing.

Overall it is a good program and is worth the time and money to use and acclimate your staff to fast response and a better functioning department.

I've found the support crew very responsive to the glitches I've been finding and feeding to them during this test drive period. So far, most of the things I've found have been fixed. I'm especially appreciating the expanded flexibility to Edit an already created work order. One of the nicest fixes has been the increased font size. I do find myself often accidentally activating the Action field, when I only want the Work Order number sneak preview in Overview. The slow load time for new screens is aggravating, but I know the crew is working on this issue. Like anything new, it takes a little time to become comfortable navigating and I feel confident my crew will catch on within a week of using the new release once it goes 100% live and be as happy as I am. Having access to the entire Help manual would be a plus, so I'd bother the Support team less.
