I have been a customer with their desktop version ESC for 10 years and was very happy with it, but now that I moved over to their cloud based system I absolutely love it!!! I can run my operations from any location because it is in the cloud and I can pull up my company from any browser. This is what I have been waiting for for years and the girls in the office love it. No more hosting it on our own servers and slow connection. FieldEdge knocked it out of the park!

Pros

Pros: It is cloud based and readily available from any browser and location. Up sell is a snap for the technicians because you are able to input up-gradable items and recommended items too take the pressure of selling off the tech and puts it in their viewable iPad for the customer to see. Up-selling to the next level is here.

Cons

Software transfer and customer history takes some time and when transferring be sure to save your old software or paperwork for exact details to look up later.
Remember that you are going to a new platform but its well worth it.

I HAVE USED SEVERAL DIFFERENT DISPATCHING PRODUCTS THROUGHOUT THE YEARS AND THIS ONE HANDS DOWN IS THE BEST. EVERYTHING FROM CREATING THE WORK ORDERS TO SYNCING INFORMATION TO QUICKBOOKS IS AS SIMPLE AS IT GETS. IF I DO HAVE ANY ISSUES, FIELD EDGE SUPPORT IS ALWAYS ON HAND TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND WALK ME THROUGH ANY ISSUE I MAY HAVE. THIS PROGRAM HAS ALSO BEEN EASY FOR MY TECHS TO USE OUT IN THE FIELD. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR SIMPLICITY AND TO CUT DOWN ON HAVING TO USE MORE THAN 1 PROGRAM TO RUN THEIR SERVICE DEPARTMENT.

Our company had been looking for a cloud based software for dispatching Service Techs for our HVAC company-a few years back we thought we had found one. We had NOT-overall experience could not have been any worse. We have now been using Field Edge and a complete turn around-sync's seamlessly to
Quickbooks in live time-Techs pleased with it, Admin staff pleased with it, owner pleased with it. Updates according to our requests are met in a timely fashion.
The Tech Support Team are amazing-they suggest that all levels of our company's staff contact them-they respond QUICKLY and have the answers we are looking for and stay with us to be certain that we understand.

Pros

The support they give

Cons

Really do not have any, maybe that they did not deveop it sooner............

Advice to Others

Do not hesitate to get onboard-these folks are the "real deal"

Field Edge is continually adding special features that improves the ease of use. One of the features that is particularly helpful is the "suggested customer". When creating a new customer, it will pick up any similarities in existing customers which helps cut back on the annoyance of a duplicated customer. The Field Edge support staff is always there with a quick response whenever we need them.

Pros

Very user friendly. The dispatch board is very simple to view and easy to use, and the Integrated phone system is proving to be a very helpful feature.

Cons

Hardly a con, however, the updates which are every couple of months come out with new features which sometimes take a moment to get used to.

Advice to Others

Trust the change.

Without a doubt, Field Edge has been the solution our company has been seeking for many years. A cloud-based software that integrates with quickbooks is what we were looking for. This isn't 90's anymore and our company likes to be ahead of the curve so the "DOS" based dispatching software wasn't even an option. We were looking for a dispatching program that would allow for the technicians to invoice in the field in real time and streamlines the billing process. Field Edge has given that to our company and so much more. We no longer have to decipher handwriting, or manually enter in work orders. The office finalizes the invoices or follows up with getting it completed if a return visit is necessary. Quotes are given to our customers while onsite which lowers the chance of the customer getting another quote and lowers the chance of them changing their mind. We also can keep track of customers with agreements, and dispatch routine routes and bill all in a timely manner. There are also GPS and CC Processing integrations which are helpful.

Pros

Quickbooks Integration, Cloud Based, All Inclusive CSR Software, TIME SAVER (at least 1 Hour a Day), Real Time invoicing in the field, Agreement fields, Phone Line integration for marketing tracking, Works on Andriod and I Phone.

Cons

The onboarding process is lengthy if your company is organized the process will be smoother than that of a disorganized company. But let's face it if you're looking for a CSR program you know you have to be organized or get organized to be a successful business. The database has to be set up in an organized fashion and even though onboarding is a process it's for a good reason and in the end, you will be thankful all the work you put into it. The system you build will only function as well as you build it. The onboarding team will build it for you, you just have to get them the information they need!

Advice to Others

I highly recommend a demo from when of the amazing customer service technicians, ask questions, give details of what you want the system to do for your company, and I bet they have an answer hope FieldEdge can help steam line your specific needs.
