Best Customer Success Manager

I have had a wonderful experience with everyone that I have talked to and worked with.

Pros

The software is easy to customize to your companies needs. If you take the time to set up your data fields in the beginning, the system flows smoothly. Saving you from double entry in the office and in the field.

Cons

In some areas there is a need for double entry. However FieldEdge is constantly updating the platform, taking advice from its users on a daily basis.

Unstable Company Killer

STAY AWAY!

Pros

THEY KILLED MY BUSINESS AND MY EMPLOYEES WALKED OUT. NOW MY VENDORS KNOW THERE IS BLOOD IN THE WATER AND HAVE STOPPED PAYING. NEED I SAY MORE

Cons

This will put you out of business. Crashes at the worst possible time and locks you out of your business completely, leaving you with pissed off customers. Also when this happens you can not invoice or schedule anything.

New Customer

Our Company really enjoys using Fieldedge

Pros

We started using Fieldedge in May 2018. Since then we have clear procise reports of collections. The entire office and Technicians can see what is going on with each account. Easy to use and manage.

Cons

Not really sure we have any issues that customer service has not helped with. Any issues they have immediatley jumped in to help us with.

Great concept when it works

So if you are still thinking to go with Field Edge, GOOD LUCK

Pros

The App is easy to use to some level, For the technicians it is easy to find items and they can even see the picture of the items.
Techs can add pictures from the field and attach it to the customers profile.
Incoming calls, we can see the existing customer information before we answer the call.

Cons

VERY SLOW, to maneuver from page to page takes time. we found ourselves putting customers on hold for a simple task.

Software updates

When Field Edge are trying to make some updates WHOLE software crash. so imagine for a second what would happen when your software is down:

Good morning you start your day.
* No incoming calls (your phone line are integrated with the software), no new customers
* Your technicians are at the office (12 of them) and have no idea where do they need to go
* Customers that are waiting for their tech to show are calling the office to check what happen, you guessed right - phones are down.
* Now you are sitting around (18 people) and have no idea what to do

WOW! Who would have thought?!

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.

Maximum Day to Day Efficiency!

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.

Not good for commercial work.

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.

HVAC company using Fieldedge

The best part of Fieldedge is the customer support. Everyone is always helpful and friendly!

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.

Not too bad

Pros

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.

FieldEdge has helped us with dispatching and keeping up with customer data. The transition and support have been not as good as I expected.

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.

Very happy with FieldEdge

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.

Very easy to use

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.

Very expensive lesson!

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.

The ease of transition was very nice. All teams involved were very helpful. I would recommend this software anytime.

Pros

The entire process was made easy to start using the product, for current employee's, in all departments

Cons

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

FieldEdge has been absolutely wonderful. The process from start to finish was made very easy!!

Pros

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.

Good experience learning the FieldEdge software. We use it every day.

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

I like the ease of invoicing, and having my customers more organized and being able to see the previous work we have done.

Cons

The financial side of things, discounts, adding percentage, wishing it would all be in one, instead of going back and forth between Fieldedge and Quickbooks
