Any integrated agency (more than just a single-discipline agency) that's looking for a one-stop shop to manage all aspects of running the business would do well to consider Advantage as the single-source tool to do it all. Single-discipline agencies could probably find a less robust tool that's equally as effective for tracking and reporting.

Fieldwire
We used Fieldwire to increase our overall productivity for our engineers and for our installers and techs in the field, so our techs could have everything in front of them when needed. Sometimes the software can be dependent on cell service and when in a remote construction area it becomes hard to pull the information.

Cons
HomeTech Information Systems
  • Advantage is hugely cumbersome. There are hundreds of functions I will never use, and that I'm not sure anyone else in the organization uses.
  • The user interface could be better. Every time there's an update, there's a small but definitive learning curve.

  • I wish more trades used it.
  • If it was cheaper, I would have more users.

Fieldwire customer service is exceptional. They are always looking to grow, learn and take feedback from users to make their software the best it can be. They have taken feedback from us, worked with us on how to best implement and incorporate our ideas and work quickly with their software engineers to implement the feedback into the software. They are willing to make changes quickly and are not shy in asking your opinion. If there are ever issues with your subscription, software or data, they are very quick to make sure everything is taken care of to the best of their ability.
