Bigwave an advantage

Several years ago we were looking for a platform to manage our ongoing work across our company's national spread. We looked at many solutions but found that they would all require us to adjust our business models slightly to fit into their structure. When we found Bigwave, we recognized an inherent flexibility that would accommodate not only our national business practices but also the nuances found in each of our various regions and our varied customer base. The flexibility of the system allows us to make adjustments within the system based on project and customer specifics without making time consuming program changes or leaving the platform to work within a parallel spreadsheet/ system.

Pros

Bigwave's user interface is extremely easy to use and their multi-level approach allows users to see all the pertinent information and use all of the tools required for each specific role in a simple, easy to understand way. We are continually surprised at how fast our customers and technicians grasp the concepts. With everyone working within the same system communication is accurate and streamlined. Bigwave allows us to consistently provide a professional product and maintain a high service level across our portfolio. In most cases our competition relies on spreadsheets and scratchpads to stay organized while we rely on a system that is available at any time, from anywhere giving us a distinct advantage.

Flexible, functional platform

We have been using Bigwave as our comprehensive service delivery platform for two years now and truly can't say enough about it. Centralised web based dispatch prevents double booking because I know that my techs and dispatch staff are working off of the same real-time schedule. I can track the status of any work order with ease, searching by customer, site, technician, accounting info, etc.. The asset management provides versatile functionality for my larger customers. My tech's shine when they attend site with the right parts in hand every time, as they can dig into the all the necessary maintenance information for the equipment they are working on. Flow-through from the work order to the invoicing allows us to invoice virtually on the spot. Transparent billing practice leads to satisfied, repeat customers. Big wave itself has proven to be everything we could hope for in a service delivery platform, but it's the service on the back end that has set them apart. They genuinely care about our business, how our office runs, providing insight and solutions that exceed our expectations. I would recommend them in a heart-beat. Thank you for helping us deliver top-shelf service Bigwave!

Pros

Flexibility. All in one platform. Web based. Exceptional functionality!

Excellent Managemnt Application

We managed the Major Deployment of several Major computer systems roll outs across the country with this platform managing hundreds of installers and dozens of project managers all being completed on time and at budget.

Pros

We used this to manage the deployment of several major systems across the country. This application flawlessly performed its functions well. The customization was great and the customer support was impeccable. We had a large number of people accessing the system and with a wide range of skill sets and it took very little training to get them up to speed on the application flow .

Cons

I don't really have any complaints about the system. It did it's job and it did it well. We did not have to bend our processes to accommodate the software too much and that was nice.

I have a fairly easy time when creating work orders. The reporting really helps in tracking my work

Pros

Reporting is awesome when your looking for specific project details. Providing the ability to view the Standard Metrics and billing information. I would like to understand why we need to put in the minutes as opposed to hours in the Standard metrics. Is this due to the way we requested to have it set up or is it the standard?

Cons

It can be a little cumbersome when adding multiple images. When adding multiple images at times it freezes and does not take all of the images and I will need to add them in portions. This happens while dragging and dropping the files into Big Wave.

Has come a LONG way from when we first started using it. It was NOT user friendly back then, much ea

Pros

This software is much more user friendly now. When we first started using it back in '05 (I think) many refused to use it because it was not at all user friendly and consumed entirely too much time for what should have been simple tasks. This product is night and day different now. We use it on a daily basis now for everything project related.

Cons

Still a bit tedious at times due to the numerous data entry points required when having to assign numerous resources during a session
