Hindsite is a great company with a great product

Pros

I really like the functionality and how it syncs with QuickBooks and have a staff of amazing helpful people!

Cons

as a growing company, its harder now to get ahold of someone to help with any kind of error that may come up (response is not as fast as it used to be), which is expected as they are growing

User friendly and makes scheduling very easy. You cannot go wrong using this software.

Great product for service companies. People are very nice and they are responsive.

Pros

Having contracts in the system and knowing that once they are completed they will get billed properly.

Cons

Anytime you need to make a change to a contract it seems like it is easier to delete the current one and add a new one.

Quite frankly, I couldn't imagine doing my job without this software. It is a must have for service

Overall my experience has been great. The staff and HindSite really support their product to the best of their abilities, and their attitude makes the small nuances in the software easy to overlook.

Pros

The support staff is phenomenal, they are always helpful and informative, and are never afraid to admit if they need help from a superior. I have had great experiences with every level of personnel they have. The software itself is very thorough, almost overwhelming, without a little direction. The ease of scheduling and ability to customize to your own specific requirements is great, and the integration with QuickBooks makes invoicing mostly a breeze. The contracts and marketing aspects which tie everything together really make it a must have for any service based company, especially in their industry-specific niche. Keeping track of parts & products for billing and inventory is SO easy.

Cons

Not cloud or web-based: lose power at the office, and the mobile techs can be at a loss. So many options and features make development a little slow, and tweaking existing products to perfection is can be hampered by new feature additions. Sometimes contract labor conversions to QuickBooks invoicing can be glitchy.

Great at dispatching and service.

Great product for service companies. People are very nice and they are responsive.

Pros

Great product for dispatching and service work. The routing functionality is easy. There are tools for setting up recurring service tasks.

Cons

Statistics are slim, I wish the features to track salesmen was more robust and functional - they are working on it, but it has been a long time coming.

Pros

Stores a lot of information and is great for billing. Also helps keep reoccurring jobs lined up and easy to look up

Almost has too many options and also the field Ap doesn't always work. Also adding materials on a job isn't always easy

Good but has limitations

We use it to run our irrigation company. It works great for what it does. We would like to see more features.

Pros

Very good at scheduling service trucks with as little windshield time as possible. Also very good at tracking work orders and time for billing.

Cons

Reports are on the weak side and marketing aspects could be stronger.

This product has every bell and whistle with no user manual or searchable help center

This product has every bell and whistle with no user manual or searchable help center. It is not for the company that doesn't have a dedicated office person who only schedules and bills. If you have many crews and dedicated full time office staff, it may be for you. The one on one support comes from very nice, helpful staff, but that is really the only help you can get, as long as it is during business hours through a call back system. If it is after hours and you can't find the solution sitting through an outdated video, too bad. And with a program this immense and intense, that is pretty pathetic. I believe the program has great capabilities, but it is not user friendly

Saves time for both technicians and office staff.

This software has the ability for technicians to web sync while in the field. This means if the office changes the schedule they can see the changes. Also if the tech is running ahead or behind of schedule there is real time updates and then can be adjusted saving tons of time and definitely money. The developers are constantly improving the software by updating reporting features or adding programs such as Hindsite Connect. Having the ability to email customers confirmations and marketing material directly from the software will save time since we will not have to export and sort the information in another program.

Should've started with Hindsite in hind sight!

Hindsite Software is an amazing tool for any company in the service industry. I recommend this to any business owner looking to streamline their operations. It is truly a complete solution for project management. The product also comes with excellent customer support and a free training session. There isn't anything else you can ask for from this software.

Hindsite made life easy

Our landscaping company was restricted from growing due to our systems. With hindsite not only could we grow, but we could leave the office to one or 2 people while everyone else was out taking care of customers, finding new leads, etc.

Long Time HindSite User

Pros

They are normally very good about personal service. You talk to real people and get help for your problems instead of google searching or hunting through an online manual. This is all included in their price.

Cons

The company has made the mistake a few times of releasing updates that have a ton of bugs and have caused a lot of grief and cost us money. They are always good about helping, but I stay away from their cutting edge at this point.

The HindSite Solution has been a wonderful addition to our company. With the ease of invoicing and scheduling, it has made an overwhelming improvement to our bottom line. Instead of printing multiple work orders for each crew we can now click a button and the work orders are sent out to each crew foreman's net book. We have been using HindSite for three years now, the first year we only used it with our irrigation department. After seeing how the program worked we added three of our other crews to the system. This year we will have the entire company using HindSite, from our install crews to our mowing/maintenance crews.
