    I LOVE the support and quick response to our concerns and issues. The attitude of- We will make it happen! - is a BIG A++++++++++++. Keep up the great work and thank you for helping my business run smoother!!!

    Pros

    Love the fact that our team can focus on using our skills instead of PAPER TO DOCUMENT every little move!!! We looked into DESCO over 10 years ago and I am kicking myself for not making the decision to purchase back then. Moving forward, we are stoked about the product and what it is going to do for us as a team. It is slick!!!!!

    Cons

    I can't really say this is a con but it has been a struggle. The clock in clock out feature doesn't work like I thought it would. END USER ERROR!!!! I just can't get the crew to remember to clock in and out. So false times are an issue. Again, END USER ERROR. The cloud is amazing, I don't know how it works. Feeling spoiled so when there is a lag I tend to loose my POOP. (Rep talk for being impatient). Haven't seen it much, so that is a good thing.

    Pros

    This software is extremely easy to use yet so detailed and organized. As long as all pertinent data is in the system workflows become more streamlined for mobile and office users. Any time we have questions or concerns we get excellent feedback from our Customer Success Manager or the help chat located in the software. They also have an ideas portal that allows you to post an idea that you think may benefit your company where other companies can vote if its something they see as beneficial to them as well.

    Cons

    We are a strictly commercial HVAC company so sometimes we need specific features tailored to our business model. For example, some of our customers have 10+ units that we need to service but we don't have the ability to apply repair forms to all units. The system basically only allows us to have 1 repair form where we need 10+ repair forms to satisfy all units being serviced. There are other minor adjustments that we see as a con but thats to do our company being strictly commercial and needing them to be tailored to our specific model.

    Never get FE unless your residential only and a control freak who can set up everything 100% before using.

    Pros

    Residential service application, once you learn it it works great for residential service calls. Personalization of items is nice.

    Cons

    Everything is difficult to change. Work orders are not expandable, collecting equipment information makes NO sense, quotes are impossible unless you have a work order assigned to the customer, system is difficult and makes no logical sense, training is not enough, lost the owners info and constantly contact the technicians even after a month of trying to get corrected, initial set up person went on vacation the week we went live and didn't assign another person, link between quickbooks and fieldedge seems delicate and iffy because every time you shut down the computer a technician must fix sync process, FE prefers chat to fix your problems and that's a joke, and many many more, we are dropping them in month 2.

    Pros

    I really like the scheduling features, and how it works seamlessly with Quickbooks online. We have used other systems that did not work like this.

    Cons

    I wish it had a feature that would send a notification to the customer when the Tech was headed their way.

    It's pretty simple to use. It's nice having everything you need wrapped up in one software. It's also nice if someone is out sick they can still log in from home since it's web based.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can run a little slow, which can be frustrating at times. Also some updates seem to hurt more than help. Especially when it removes things.

    Overall, I'm happy we choose this program. Many of our problems are because we are learning as we go and because we live in a rural area with spotty cell phone service. The customer service has been good, but not great. Sometimes they take a while to respond. This is the first program that we have had like this, so it's difficult to compare it to anything.

    Pros

    The program has a lot of good features that took us from doing everything on paper to tablets. The dispatching to the tablets and the availability of customer information is great to have.

    Cons

    Data transfer was a little rough. We have a lot of areas that are out of cell phone service. The program is extremely limited and slow when either in the offline mode or a bad signal. When we have a full signal, the program works rather well. It takes a lot of work to get all of the information loaded into the program. Training was fast and furious.

    The more information you feed into FieldEdge the more you will get out of it. We are constantly learning what we can add, what we can track and how to help our company run a little smoother.

    Pros

    - Great Customer Service
    - FieldEdge is constantly adding new features
    - No more data entry for the office
    - Techs can see customer history and equipment info.
    - accountability of staff

    Cons

    GPS and credit card processing is still separate. And time it takes to schedule customers is taking us a little longer.

    Customer service is responsive and always ready to help

    Pros

    It puts all of our office functions into one platform. Dispatching, billing, taking payments in the office and in the field, quotes. It does it all

    Cons

    Set up took a while to perfect. Between menu pricing and the existing customer list, getting it all into the system correctly took time.

    Too many unproductive parts and not enough help with work. Too many bells & whistles.

    Pros

    Customer service was great getting started. They worked and answered questions they knew the answer to.

    Cons

    Not user friendly for techs in the field. Work orders started could not be changed. We ran into many issues that customer service and training had problems with. We wanted a program to make work easier this added more steps and more complicated. Gave us nice credit BEFORE PAYMENT...Then kept a substantial amount of my money we paid when we canceled before the 30 days was up. Not as much knowledge about Quickbooks syncing as we were lead to believe by the first salesman.

    Cons

    No users manual for future employee's, ,must use the training videos, which they talk too fast and jumps around to much.

    I love having everything in one place. I don't have to use several different programs to get the information. Also, having the profitability of each work order is amazing and easily monitored.

    Cons

    The only thing that I would like to see some improvement on is the job section. We have a lot of construction jobs and there are some items that could be added and modified that would make this section much more efficient.

    This soft ware allowed us to have everything in one program that we needed to run our business. From having client files, to dispatch with GPS, to linking to our quickbooks. Saving us time without having multiple programs.

    Pros

    I like having everything in one program. From Client files, to GPS, to linking with our Quickbooks. This software program was very easy to learn. I am not the best on computers and learned and mastered this program in a very short period of time.

    Cons

    At times this program can be slow. Which makes things a little difficult when you have customers on the phone or multiple phone lines.

    Pros

    Great idea, cloud base - don't need to worry about the server.
    Nice customer service (when they answer)

    Cons

    The list is too long.
    1. Too slow to be able to work with it, you cannot answer the phone and input the information in the system
    2. This is not accounting software so you will need the most expansive package with QuickBooks to make it to work.
    3. You cannot place any order from vendor for parts
    4. A lot of bugs in the system that will cause you spend hours of office staff to figure out that you miss a lot of money and tech support will call you in couple of days.

    And there is more and more
    They might get much better and better with time (at least 3 years from now)

    The salesman. The rest is not worthy of installation in the HVAC industry. So slow.

    Cons

    To much to list! Slow, difficult to use, no response when we needed help. Biggest complaint from techs, they could never gain access and when they did it would delete all there notes causing delays with paperwork being done over several times, most of the time they could not complete paperwork at all so it would clog up the office the next morning with techs doing paperwork in the office!! The complete opposite of what we were trying to accomplish. I felt like we stepped back 8 years in time when we installed this crap program. Cost alot of money and time huge loss to our company financially. We wound up going back to our original software field service manager faster, cheaper and much better support by far!

    Cons

    There are not many negative things to say about the software, however the learning curve with many options is a bit pronounced.

    I love the fact that it is web based. It has helped make us more time effective with our scheduling.

    Pros

    I like that it is web based. I can be away from the office and be able to login and help with scheduling and billing.

    Cons

    We switched from ESC to Field Edge and I was hoping they would have been more similar. Every aspect of this program takes about 5 extra steps to get something done. We provide maintenance agreements for our customers and this was the big draw for this software as it was supposed to help make this easy, well guess what, you can only ever have one SA per customer. We have two different SA we offer and can't use them both in this system as it only allows the one. It is a very frustrating program in general.
