The Pest Pac software is everything in one for a start-up company or an established company. The software can grow as your company continues to grow and the customer service is ongoing and excellent.

Pros

The ease in which it helps to manage almost every aspect of a day for a pest control company.

Cons

The cost for training, once past the initial stage having the training staff either come to you or sending your people out to Pest Pac is very expensive.

Advice to Others

This software is for serious players only. It is what you need both now and in the future for growth.

I find the software to be very user-friendly. The variety of reports makes it easy to find out the information you want. As with any software, you get out what you put in. When I do need support, I find a friendly rep on the other end that seems engaged with and knowledgeable about the software.

Advice to Others

Do yourself a favor and go with PestPac. Its the last software you'll purchase.

I was a pest pac user from 2008 to 2016. Over the years little changed in the way of improvements. It was exciting to have a software that had the ability to invoice customers, compile great reports, schedule customers, track leads, process credit cards, process ACH, track commission, connect third party collections partners, track employees, provide up to date state forms, and had communication elements. All this sounds great and like a 1 stop shop. The only and main issue is most of the features don't function at all or as they should. Scheduling took years, the scheduling aids simply did not work at all. I went to a Pest Pac conference and found many other customers that had the same complaint.

Pest Pac lead tracking is a joke. I called to complain and the sales person agreed. He tried to sale me another add on services. The only thing worst than the lead functions are the reports. Pest Pac is very antiquated and hard to master. If you do not put information in exactly right you can make an error that cannot be corrected. The report will probably never work for any customer. You would have to be a full time data entry expert to enter information in a way that did not jack up the reports.

Finally, billing is holy hell. The service is too pricey and the add ons are a trap. You have to buy add on to use some of the basic features that apart form the package. Tech support also sucks. I ended service in August and received an email in September that said they were still working on an issue I reported in July. Don't bother with Pest Pac. Every other software provider provides the same features in a simpler way. Avoid Pest Pac at all cause.

Pros

Mature company that was a been in the service industry for a while.

Cons

Slow unresponsive tech support, too expensive, feature do not work or work well. To use basic feature you have to pay for add on services, the billing department sucks. The company does not respect the fact that they support other business and the software is vital to the operation of a business. The system goes down for hours at a time and when they do system updates

Advice to Others

Try Pest routes or Service Pro

It sends invoices to customers as soon as invoices are released. Customers receive invoices that htey have paid at service time but credit cards post second and are not applied at time of release and emails going out. We get a lot of customers telling us they paid already, why are we getting this email etc. saying we owe?? frustrating!!!
their route opt feature is not user friendly and very expensive

Without Pest Pac, there would be no way we could manage our current Workforce. Our small office staff of 3 people would never be able to route new services, dispatch emergency calls and handle our $1.5M+ business. It is easily scale-able; so as we grow, so does our Pest Pac software.

Likes Least

I feel they are a bit behind in the native app development. Not in comparison to other pest control software....just in general. The current version is only 2 years in the making and I think that this is about 5 years behind the curve. It's great as is, but I wish they were farther along.

Recommendations

Pest Pac is great for smaller companies or larger organizations.

"I've been using PestPac since 2004 and have experienced many many changes and upgrades. Marathon Data and Work Wave do an excellent job of keeping PestPac efficient in maintaining industry specific records and reporting with continuous upgrades and listening to the suggestions of their customers who have used the program long term."

Likes Least

I feel like at times I know the program better than the customer service agents but that has come from many years of experience with PestPac.

Recommendations

I have not ever used another pest control software so I have no basis of comparison but PestPac has so far done everything that we need it to do for scheduling and maintaining records.

All has been good. Supports after the initial start up period has been a little laxkibf.

Recommendations

Software works best in conjunction with someone in the office delegating work, if everybody is in the field all day and only in the office in the evenings things are a bit more difficult. Entering new customers in the field is kinda difficult as you are not allowed to enter all info from the mobile app.

It takes a lot of time to setup. It requires a lot of detail. However the details are of great benefit when the product is use.

Recommendations

When evaluating this software, I would recommend that they start the evaluation right away. This software has long term benefits. So the faster the setup is done the faster the benefits. Also start using the software with one tech to see if you like it.

I like that you can grow as big as you want to with them. Although I have heard stories that they make you pay big dollars for your own customer list if you choose to go somewhere else.

Likes Least

The customer support is really bad. If you have questions that are not covered in the videos, good luck getting an answer. Also, unlimited customer support in the first month was actually about four 10 minute sessions that I had to schedule out days in advance.....not unlimited support.

Recommendations

Expect it to be up and running after 2 or 3 months and a whole lot of money. Unless you have an in-house IT person, you don't need the sophistication. If you are a small company like me, it's not worth it.

First, a form of shorthand set up by the user in the wood-destroying organism report function facilitates writing repetitious findings and recommendations. Second, it is the industry (sub)standard and required by our franchisor, although neither speaks to our wretched experience with it. Third, there is the probably groundless hope that it can eventually be less counterproductive and perhaps even useful.

Likes Least

Endorsement by our parent company, and industry-wide use, promise more than Pestpac itself delivers. Pestpac is a cumbersome program (and needlessly so) that favors computer code writers more than users, is counter-intuitive to those who have used a product that works, and seems to have become the industry "standard" because the market settled too early for too little.

Recommendations

Compare, then use virtually anything else, and direct to your business and health the valuable resources that would otherwise have been devoured by Pestpac.

I do not like this product...I have lost business due to its non-functioinality of the software numerous times over the 3 months that I have had it. The software has had issues every 1-2 weeks and it has taken more than a day to resolve which has resulted in lost business. The customer support staff has been helpful on occasion. The training staff is great.

Constant software problems and the downtime of not being able to operate your business with the product.

Until this company gets all the bugs worked out of the system where you can rely on its functionality instead of having weekly breakdowns.....dont utilize this software.

The product pretty much has everything you need on the main screen, such as the customer history, open service orders, future service orders and also cancellations. The e-mail capability actually works for sending notices or reports. The customer service so far has been great. I also like the map location being right on the main screen when you bring up the address which is very helpful. There is a very quick response for any questions or help needed.

Likes Least

I am a fairly new customer to the program, but so far I am very pleased with their customer support, which I think is a very important factor, so therefore there is nothing negative I can say about the vendor. There is a lot of back end entry that you need to enter, but I find that I enter it as needed. For example county codes that need to populate, or chemicals tied into a particular service. Other than that I cannot really cannot find anything I don't like about the program.

Recommendations

All I can say is when you are going to choose a program for your business, base it on other customers who have used the program. Also take into consideration their years in the industry. The program might not look fancy on your computer screen for today's standards, to me it is more important to have confidence in the product that you are using and that it does the job.
