We have been using Fergus for almost 12 months now and are very happy with the program.

The benefits to our business using this software is ultimately less time processing paperwork and data and simplicity for our users. The other great feature of the software is being able to store job specific data like photos that are easily accessable

Pros

We went from a single person operation to 4 people on the road and one office based team member. The old program we were using didn't have enough quite do every thing we wanted and was quite clunky on site. The way in which Fergus flows and easily displays information regarding jobs means there is no confusion on site and when used correctly office staff can collate the data to create invoices easily, meaning we can get invoices out faster and hopefully paid faster. Now with the additional benefit of Fergus offering our customers credit card payment, we have found even less reason for customer not to pay. The schedulling calander on Fergus gives us the best forsite we have ever had to see potential lead times and alsogives us a better look at keeping things ahead of jobs wth regards to ordering materials and organising other important parts to any given job. Our guys on site love it as it is super simple to use for them and realistically cuts down there paperwork too. Time sheets created off all there job data is done automatically meaning the office is not trying to get times off them each week to do payroll. In general Fergus has made our business run smoother and less things get forgotten about, missed or overlooked.

Cons

The biggest thing that we find as a downfall would only be it is not that simple to see what price you have sold a product for previously. (Well not that we are aware of). In saying that Fergus seem to be very dedicated to listening to what their customers want and make updates regularly, I''m sure that it will only be a matter of time until they create a tool to help with this.

There are lots of benefits that outlay the cons. Have used Nimbus & Simpro in the past. Simpro I believe is one of the best systems however is rather expensive.

Pros

- Easy - Very visual - custom emails responses & templates - supplier invoice downloads (JA Russell) - field staff find easy to complete COC's and job cards - forms is easy to use for internal audits and tailgates

Cons

- WIP doesn't download very well would be great if PDF Option - unable to custom status's - unable to create credits for invoices have to void then recharge - quoting reporting would be great if we could filter to groups - hazards need to be mitigated by all staff however not all staff are scheduled on works?

Reasons for switching to Fergus

This was while opting with another company. When creating our company we started with Xero Projects but this was very limited in features.

Fergus simplifies the Scheduling of our Field Technicians and tracking time for Contract Management

Easy Software to implement and use. And Simple!!

Pros

Amazing Scheduling, Map functions and Job tracking for field staff and Finance Division

Cons

The reporting functins for quoteing especially is lacking. We want to know how succesful our sales team is and this software needs to elevate to make it function in the CRM department.

Who let the Dog out

We could not organize our business day to day without Fergus

Pros

Great technical back up in layman's terms and we feel that we are being listened to. Your people who answer questions do a great job. I also like the information in "Notifications" about any problems that Fergus may be experiencing.

Cons

There is a lot of information and procedures that are a bit daunting at the start

Reasons for switching to Fergus

Fergus partnered with Xero, which my accountant uses.
