Excellent app for CRM, and Production Workflow

Too many to list.

PROS

We are a small business manufacturing and installing signs in Berkshire. ShopVOX is exactly what we need for our business. ShopVOX allows us to log and track all our customer interactions, manage their accounts and manage our internal workflows to ensure signage is manufactured and delivered on time and on spec. Our busy team are able to quickly and easily log sales leads, create and revise quotes, convert approved quotes to sales orders, create production workflows and raise sales invoices. Invoices can be exported from ShopVOX into our accounts at the click of a button. The team at ShopVOX are very helpful and the most impressive and valuable asset this company has is their ability to listen to customers and upgrade their software quickly to suit customers ever-changing needs. There have been numerous occasions when we have suggested a improvement and we've seen it go live within weeks. Keep up the good work ShopVOX!

CONS

Nothing at present, and whatever we don't like about the software is usually changed within weeks when we put a reasonable case to ShopVOX.

Game Changer

PROS

So many things to like and big upgrades from our current software. - Estimating is a great feature. Takes a good bit of work to setup initially, but the long term benefits will be totally worth the effort. - Love the job board and the way jobs are tracked through each step of the process. Gives us the ability to see exactly where jobs are which results in fewer status update phone calls from our PMs. They can get the info they need in a few clicks. - The analytics are great. We use Quickbooks and have never been able to look at this much info about the status of our shop. How many quotes are out there, how many have gone to production this week (or this month), how many quotes have converted to orders and much more. Makes my job easier when looking at sales. - Just the fact that basically our whole shop is in one piece of software. Accounting, estimating, purchasing, production management in one browser window.

CONS

- Would like to see more options in the estimating area for custom signage. The ability to price signs with multiple pieces, such as "faceplate" and "backplate" will be huge for us. I think this is being developed. - This is picky, but just some general UI tweaks would be nice. When you bring up the job page everything gets a bit squished and hard to read.

Reason for choosing shopVOX

The feature set and flow of production seemed to fit our shop the best.

Vendor Response

Gary, thanks for the detailed review! We are so happy that you are benefiting from shopVOX's estimating feature, Quickbooks integration and many other features!

ShopVox is a good solution that still needs a lot of work

Overall, we like ShopVox because it allows us an easy way to put together a Sales Order and Invoice. But we do not like it for any pricing, margins, or any of the other "features" they offer. It feels like it was built by a programmer who has never learned any UI/UX. And I suspect that is exactly what happened.

PROS

I love how easy it is to start a new order and enter all the order information. ShopVox makes it very easy to create a new job, fill in what is being ordered, and it allows us to send the quote/sales order/invoice directly to the client through ShopVox. That is great, and we are very happy with that!

CONS

We are not happy with the backend of ShopVox. It is extremely difficult to figure out how to price items correctly. The backend system is not user-friendly at all. I highly recommend they hire some quality UI/UX designers to do a complete overhaul because it is very painful to use as it. We have been using ShopVox for almost two years, and we still haven't been able to get our pricing entered correctly, or have the correct options for different products. The system also is built on certain assumptions that we're definitely going to do it the one specific way that they imagined every sign shop should operate. But we don't do it that way, so many of the options/features/settings don't work for us. As a result, we use ShopVox to create our invoices, but we enter all of the information in manually - everything including the product name, fabrication instructions, and pricing. ShopVox serves us well as far as having a place to build an invoice and bill the customer. But it does not make it easy to enter our product information in or figure out the pricing. The backend is WAY too confusing and would require a full-time employee to be immersed in the system for a very long time in order to get it up and running the way the ShopVox team envisions. We even hired someone who does ShopVox backend work exclusively to help us get the backend up and running, and he said it would take him many months to get it done - and he already knows what to do! This is ridiculous.

Signage CRM system second to none

ShopVOX takes over the day to day administration of running the company, from managing sales leads, quotes, sales orders, projects, invoicing, automatically sending statements, product pricing with profit margins, materials, artwork approval, email sync, email templates, online support, monitor the team in real time, ability for customers to have their own login portal to view jobs, invoicing, artwork & order online... the list goes on! I've used a number of CRM systems and trained people on CRM systems for previous roles in the past and always the blown away with how good Shopvox works. 100% recommend to anyone, its a no brainier!

PROS

The ease of use. They have thought of everything you need and put it in a simple interface that's user friendly and easy to follow, its a powerful bit of kit they simplifies running a team of people / company.

CONS

There is not much not to like to be honest, I guess initially its a lot to get your head wrapped around, i.e setting up materials and products, but I think they have an on boarding option for this. But after that its plain sailing.

Reasons for switching to shopVOX

The Clarity Software is very dated, cumbersome and full of glitches, lost count of the number of times I've been in contact with support, some of the glitches you just have to live with as there is nothing they can do. Plus its an expensive set up, you have to buy standalone computer to run it (its not an online system so cant access it on the go) and all the features are modules so you you pay a MASSIVE about for all the features, don't get me wrong its a powerful system, but ShopVox offers so much more.

Vendor Response

Thanks Karl for the awesome review. We are so glad that you are blown away by shopVOX and are using so many of its features. We value you!
