HighGear was a lifesaver!

Excellent! Customer support is the best of any software company I've ever dealt with.

Pros

We recently had an employee leave the company unexpectedly and without HighGear it would have been so much more difficult of a transition. Because we work in various locations, the collaboration that HighGear provides was a lifesaver! No one had to go to her desk and search through paper files to figure out what was outstanding. We could easily assign the tasks to others within the office. Updating the workflows was simple. It was also very helpful for us to understand all the various tasks that she was responsible for so we could reevaluate and streamline processes.

Cons

Assigning permissions takes some getting used to. Once you wrap your head around it, it's not a big deal though.

Game changer!

They are a well run, conscientious company that wants to truly deliver value. That's the impression I get with every interaction. If they don't know something they find out. Also, the software itself is super unique. For example, when the head of my Operations Department wanted to explore linking it with data from another program, they worked with her to find the best solution for the best cost (i.e., building an integration). Ultimately this was cost effective and allowed us to utilize the software in more of our process areas. Working with them was the bright light for us during this horrid year (2020). They allowed us to become entirely virtual, innovative, and lower costs all at once.

Pros

This software allows us to finally do what we've wanted to do for 10 years - create SMART workflows and processes that save our operations people TIME. Also, now that we know of the software's capabilities we are adding new development to our list of process improvements. This would equate to hundreds of thousands of dollars in traditional programming costs, but we are paying a very tiny fraction of any development efforts in the past. And our return on investment was immediately measurable. IT IS SO INTUITIVE AND FLEXIBLE.

Cons

In the beginning there is a learning curve, but in the grand scheme of things that is a small price to pay for what we got.

Reasons for Choosing HighGear

We wanted to control more of the development and had the staff to take on the challenge. Their platform allows this.

Customizable Solution with Great Support

I think our overall experience with HighGear has been very positive! We have been able to increase our productivity and measure performance and results. The processes that we have put in place through HighGear keep us organized and on track and with the many projects that we have. The Customer Support team at HighGear is amazing as well and always ready to help us out and talk through and suggest ways to help and improve!

Pros

What I like most about HighGear is its ability to change to meet the needs that we have as opposed to us changing to conform to the software. We are able to make changes and updates relatively quickly and with minimal fuss to make the software work better in our ever-changing workplace.

Cons

I think that there is almost too much in HighGear and that can make it overwhelming and confusing. There are a lot of built in functionalities that we do not use (i can't imaging someone using them all) and that creates some complexity in not being able to hide or remove the parts we don't use.

HighGear got our Company Organized!

Pros

HighGear took our company for very disorganized to a company that had added structure. We were dealing with a company growth spurt and needed to add structure to our growing company. We could no longer do business the way we were before. HighGear helps multiple departments communicate on day to day tasks as well as larger projects. We are currently looking into expanding our use of HighGear. Overall this product is great!

Cons

There is no answer generator. Example: If the user answers yes to a question certain fields appear or become applicable on the same form.

Highgear has automated our business logic and provided fantastic customer support.

Highgear’s software has been invaluable to our organization with regards to removing the complexity of managing projects.. We are required to capture pertinent information to provide at the State level, and the automation of that process has helped us achieve the requirements seamlessly.

Pros

The organizational structure of Highgear’s team has been a huge plus in our experience. Clearly defined roles and responsibilities on their teams have ensured that at each touch point we are able to get an answer quickly. At the onset of utilizing their services, the requirements elicitation and scope of our needs was thorough and precise and has only needed tweaking as our organization has grown. Their assistance with understanding our business model and clearly defining outcomes in workflow was impressive. Any questions to the support team are answered quickly and efficiently. At each release of new features we have found the assistance from product managers, trainers and solutions architects to be thorough, with an option for self-paced learning through their LMS that would be useful to administrators as a continued resource.

Cons

There are helpful features that might be missed without a fully engaged team or admin pushing them, and to identify the full scope of what HighGear offers requires a time commitment to attend training. In our experience, this investment of time has resulted in improved organizational project management and clean business logic process.
