Very detailed work and keeps track of all your chemical use and notes and billing. The mobile app is good too.

A little high in price. They charge for adding other things like ipm service . They have a lot of tables to fill out before using. Not for small company.

I like the professional looking invoices and selection of reports offered. The ease of adding customers and merging when entered under a different account number in error. I especially am anxious to run the material / chemical use report for my annual report to the Board of Pesticides.

Cons

Having trouble working in it the same time as my technician. It has become quite troublesome and it effects the scheduling and posting of invoices.

Pros

*HELPFUL IN YOUR DAY TO DAY SCHEDULING
*VERY HELPFUL IN INVOICING
* MAKING FOLLOW UPS
*MAINTAINING CLIENTS LIST

Cons

There is a task feature, so you can create tasks for yourself or others so you can schedule follow ups or check back in with clients. In the past, this has been very helpful, however, with the last update, they have changed the task feature. It still keeps all your tasks in one place, but it is much more difficult to navigate and you basically have to open up the task in one window and open separate windows to view customers accounts to see the history.

Really great software overall, but it is on the pricy side.

Pros

The software makes it really easy to track the progress of work that is being done. When can easily keep track of how many pests are caught/sighted in hotel rooms, apartment units, or single family homes. You can also set up to automatically schedule follow ups, that way nothing gets missed or forgotten. They have good reporting features to keep track of things. When an apartment manager wants to see one progress on one specific unit, we can pull a report just on the one apartment, instead of giving them everything, so it's easier for the managers to distinguish and read the reports.

Cons

There is a task feature, so you can create tasks for yourself or others so you can schedule follow ups or check back in with clients. In the past, this has been very helpful, however, with the last update, they have changed the task feature.

Don't waste your money or time.

Pros

nothing

Cons

Description states compatible with most tablets; this was untrue so we purchased all new tablets from recommended list. On a good day, product is extremely cumbersome & time consuming. After using successfully for a few months product experiences frequent service interruptions, everything from logging you out once job is started to gps not working to sluggish performance. Extremely frustrating for technician trying to get through the day. Support tries to blame it on user error & signal, both of which have been tested and found to be fine. This product indeed this company are not recommended.

The major hurdle for a startup company would be the pricing schedule. It's a tad high for an entry level pest control business.

What really would be nice is to have a one on one in person at my desktop training or a class in town. I have a hard time to take extra hours out of my day to study video training, where I feel I still may not quite get it. I would though make a point to take time out of my day to go to an actual class, where I feel it would be beneficial.

Pros

Reports- Keeps track of the chemical use. I like that my applicator can input information, while working in the field. I like the automated emails and how it separates the bill- to from the location of service. I like the way the invoices and statements look.

Cons

Time consuming to learn how this software works. Over the phone training is not for me. Although the one on one is very nice, but I feel Webinars would be a better way to educate.

RUN! There are software that you can customize for pest control for less money than this software. They nickel and dime you for each feature. The reports aren't accurate. There is no way to find an accurate report on attrition or growth because they don't know how to program correctly. To run a business of any size on this software is a mistake because you'll never know for certainty what your profitability is and will simply have to guess. I was accustomed for 7 years and they are terrible at addressing concerns that are their fault. Unfortunately, they are The Who's who in pest software, but save yourself some time and headache... look elsewhere and have someone program a crm from another software platform specific to your company. You will spend the same amount of money from lost revenue and customers using this software, but will have something that actually works. All they do is market to upsell features that don't work. Terrible company and terrible software.

Pros

It supposedly has lots of features. However, support guides you to set them up incorrectly because the software is designed for pest control based on 30 year old practices, not modern day business.

Cons

Everything. The reports aren't accurate. The customer support doesn't give proper guidance to fix problems with their software. They don't even understand how the software is programmed, so when there is an issue... they tell you to do something as a workaround that causes more problems. Do yourself a favor and run away! As fast as you can.

The Pest Pac software is everything in one for a start-up company or an established company. The software can grow as your company continues to grow and the customer service is ongoing and excellent.

Pros

The ease in which it helps to manage almost every aspect of a day for a pest control company.

Cons

The cost for training, once past the initial stage having the training staff either come to you or sending your people out to Pest Pac is very expensive.

Advice to Others

This software is for serious players only. It is what you need both now and in the future for growth.

I was a pest pac user from 2008 to 2016. Over the years little changed in the way of improvements. It was exciting to have a software that had the ability to invoice customers, compile great reports, schedule customers, track leads, process credit cards, process ACH, track commission, connect third party collections partners, track employees, provide up to date state forms, and had communication elements. All this sounds great and like a 1 stop shop. The only and main issue is most of the features don't function at all or as they should. Scheduling took years, the scheduling aids simply did not work at all. I went to a Pest Pac conference and found many other customers that had the same complaint.

Pest Pac lead tracking is a joke. I called to complain and the sales person agreed. He tried to sale me another add on services. The only thing worst than the lead functions are the reports. Pest Pac is very antiquated and hard to master. If you do not put information in exactly right you can make an error that cannot be corrected. The report will probably never work for any customer. You would have to be a full time data entry expert to enter information in a way that did not jack up the reports.

Finally, billing is holy hell. The service is too pricey and the add ons are a trap. You have to buy add on to use some of the basic features that apart form the package. Tech support also sucks. I ended service in August and received an email in September that said they were still working on an issue I reported in July. Don't bother with Pest Pac. Every other software provider provides the same features in a simpler way. Avoid Pest Pac at all cause.

Pros

Mature company that was a been in the service industry for a while.

Cons

Slow unresponsive tech support, too expensive, feature do not work or work well. To use basic feature you have to pay for add on services, the billing department sucks. The company does not respect the fact that they support other business and the software is vital to the operation of a business. The system goes down for hours at a time and when they do system updates

Try Pest routes or Service Pro

PestPac has a lot of thought and effort put into it and it helps get the job done. It is mostly geared toward small companies who lack the capabilities to do custom software design. It works as a basic ERP in the sense that it does field service as well as billing. It links to quickbooks if you prefer an external billing system but quite frankly I think you'd be better off saving the money and just using PestPac.

It falls short when you start to expand and require a lot more custom workflows and company specific needs. They take the "good for the goose, good for the gander" approach and system customizations (if seen as favorable) become stock in the product after a period of time. This means that the rest of the industry gets to benefit from your companies ideas. This isn't inherently bad but it can damage competitive advantage.

From a database and design perspective they are using outdated technology and their database could do with a re-write. Tables are often used for multiple situations which can led to a lot of jury-rigging of fields.

If you are a small company that needs data and needs to get the job done PestPac will perform well for you and elevate you beyond competitors who are using paper tickets.
If you are a larger company who strives to use their own secret sauce you will be better served getting a more generic service platform and customizing it to your needs.

I have been a pest pac customer since 2008. The company sales you on allnthe future that don't actually work. They charge for everything and don't train or explain. We lost money because of pest pac. We process credit card that was not actually charged. The company lost out and pest pac didn't even apologize or their faulty system. They all so have horrible billing. They are expensive and then double charge and will not return or credit unless u bring it to their attention within 30 days.

PestPac has been very instrumental in helping us organize and manage our company. The software is comprehensive, very functional and user friendly. We could not operate at the level we do, with so few employees without PestPac. We estimate we would need an additional 2-3 employees to manage our back office without the software. In addition, we estimate we get between 30-40% more production out of each field tech due to the organization and route optimization capabilities of PestPac.

Pros

Very user friendly.
Thorough and very comprehensive!

Cons

None. We have not had one negative thing to say about pest PAC in over the 10 years we have used it. It is ingrained into the culture of our company.

I started working with PestPac via handheld only as a Pest Tech. Then I worked with it for 2 years as an administrative assistant. I transferred to a company that hired me as a Department Administrator. Dealing with PestPac at a management level and an employee level are 2 very separate things. Dealing with it as a technician I was only utilizing it's minor functions with limited access to what I can and cannot do. As an administrator, I have noticed I am utilizing it some of the reports every day. The reports could definitely use some work, but I understand it's a work in progress.

Pros

Customer service. Workwave has definitely got better customer service support than other software companies. I worked with PestPac before for about 2 years. After that I dealt with Workwave and had to help start another company up. Since working with them, I'm learning to adapt to the new technology and the customer service is great. I don't understand how people can complain because all I do is call them up or email them and I get a response usually within the day. If they can't solve a problem right away, they figure it out, and then call me back and teach me how to do it.

Cons

Only issue I'm really noticing is that with the old technology (Motorolla handheld devices), most of the routing on the handhelds seem easier because they can route their day on a map. But with the new iOS (iPhone 6) it seems like there isn't a map for them to work off of. Nor does it give them directions to another property. Other then that, I'd still recommend PestPac to small and large pest control companies.

Advice to Others

Keep in mind what this software was designed for actual field work use. A lot of the reports could use a little more work to make it easier to find and organize some things, but I still prefer this software to say Salesforce when it comes to overall use. Recurring services: one time, yearly, biannually, monthly, bimonthly, alternate monthly, weekly, etc. Keep in mind that you're able to take payments through PestPac as well. Very useful to have for when you're swamped with calls to the office, you don't want to miss a payment, but the technician can easily take the payment over the handheld device. If this software could customize a report for instance to get multiple data in one report rather than have to run multiple reports for the same thing. For instance, I have to check accounts receivable to find out how much money is owed, but then I have to run another report to find out how much money was collected that day. It'd be nice to be able to combine these two reports.

Pestpac has been a great value to my company. I am able to access it from my desktop and mobile phone. With the Marathon Mobile app I no longer need to email each technician their route. They can view, update notes, and even upload photos and documents. Saving time and money.

Pros

It's software allows you to file several city and state mandatory reports seamlessly. Track technician activity to the minute and submit reports to customers instantly via email. It has saved me time and energy and provides customers more control of their account that I could have given them prior to using it.

Cons

I wish the community portal had more answers to the questions that are posted. If they did, this would significantly reduce if not eliminate many calls that come through the customer support line.

For new comers in the pest control world they may not be able to afford or even need the software if they are a 1 man show. Perhaps they can make a version just for people like that. Like a pestpac starter edition or something.

I've used several pest routing software systems, and Pest Pac is by far the best. I love the fact that all users can access the information, and the tutorials are extremely helpful. The fact that I can utilize the tutorials when I need them, on my schedule, is awesome. I recommend pest pac all the time.

Pros

It is super easy to use. It has a lot of features in house, as well as mobile functionality out in the field too.

Cons

Sometimes I have to leave a message for their support team when I have a question, but they always get back with me normally by the end of the day.

Advice to Others

Obviously not all programs are meant for all businesses, but if you understand your business needs you'll be able to insure Pest Pac meets them.

I have been using PestPac since it was in DOS form (yes before Windows). I have been through all of the growing pains and have never been so disappointed. They are so confused with their own growth that nothing is stable (they even keep changing their name). Instead of focusing on one aspect and expanding that until it works, they have so many projects going that nothing works properly. I have to log into one website to do daily work. I have to log into another website to print invoices. I then have to log into yet another website to use a route mapping program and to access my employee timesheets. Pestpac's constant answer: "We know that is an issue and hassle and we are working on it." I am so tired of hearing that phrase. Although they have made customer service more accessible and everyone is friendly, if you can't make your program run properly then don't distribute it. I realize after new releases, that there will be glitches. However, I can't believe that I have to use 3 different websites just to do my daily work. I thought their community site would be beneficial for the consumer to let PestPac know what's wrong but if you look most of the known issues have "under consideration" or "in progress" for correction. Those "in progress" issues are mostly a year or more old. Create a program that works in its entirety and quit adding new things until you have the system running smoothly to begin with. By the way, as I have been looking into other companies, PestPac's costs and extra costs are extremely high compared to their competitor's. Time for a change.

My company is 80% multi family residential service. PestPac promised me we could go mobile with their multi unit module(costs extra). We input the customer and site information as was instructed to us by their multi unit on-boarding specialist. The system immediately started to time out and give error messages. When I called support, they told me I was entering too much info into the system and was going to have to enter less areas. I needed all the areas entered as it's required by our state regulatory agency. Support told me they were going to fix it. 12 months and $7,000 later, it's still not fixed.

For our single family routes, the mobile worked great. If we were only servicing single family homes PestPac would've worked perfectly for us.

We have cancelled PestPac.

We have been using pestpac for 3 years and it hasn't changed since we started. Thats right, no meaningful updates, new technology, etc. It seems like this software code was written in the 80's when computers were pretty limited. Also, the programmers/people in charge have tried to make it so complex with multi-step processes for even small tasks. It is filled with redundancy and no intuitiveness. I think the code is so old and complicated that they can't bring themselves to trash it and build it from the ground up. I rue the day we signed an agreement with this company. Here are 3 things that pestpac will cause to happen to your business:

1. Lose money (Yes, the opposite of what good technology should do. You will lose money by hiring additional admin staff as well as very high software and add-on "module" costs.)
2. Spend hours and hours with multi-step tasks to do things that could be done with a few clicks with modern software.
3. Extreme frustration when thinking about how successful, lean and automated your company could be if pestpac provided a better technology solution.

In closing, our days with pestpac are coming to a close. We have put it off because of the time consuming process of making a switch. How sad, that's the only thing that makes companies stay with pestpac, handcuffs and the pain of switching. Marathon or "workwave" should be ashamed of their product in the modern marketplace.

My company has been a Pestpac customer since 2009. I got into this software due to it was versatile and paper free to manage all our accounts, at least this was what we were told in 2009 when there was just a few competitors for pest control software. The paperless option is not totally paperless unless you gave money to pay, besides 4 licenses $225/m we had to pay $149/m extra to have the multi unit module, everything they have is extra, classes, phone calls, support, etc.
Recently, we were at the 2015 Pest Expo in NYC and found that there was a company Fieldwork who offers basically everything they offer for less plus a few months free trial, yes free.
As of today, we are more than satisfied with Fielwork, our technicians love it and this software is straigh forward.
The juicy part is when you want to cancel Pestpac/Workwave. We always though we had a contract for the first 12months since we never heard from them, no emails, no calls. We recently contacted accounting and what a surprise is when they tell you that you are under contract after 7 years of service. The contract automatically renews, what? Yes in these days when in some states "automatic renewals" are illegal specially when there is no notification of renewal. Our surprise was when we spoke to Annamarie from accounting who told us that we had to know the date our contract expires and send a cancelation request 30 days in advance, otherwise, we had to pay for the remaining balance. Not only that, we told her how could we know when a 7 year contract automatically renews, the least thing I need from you is a notification, we were told that "we have thousands of clients and we do not send notifications, it would be an endless task" what? I wish they have the same filosophy when it comes to payments, they basically care about your monthly payment and your obbligation to stay tied to them forever.
We are so regreated of not knowing this company earlier and being so mistaken for all these years. Hopefully, you guys do not make the same mistake
