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.

Jobber - Field Service Software
When you have a lot of techs out in the field, Jobber helps to keep track of who is assigned to which job. This lessens the likelihood of miscommunication or having jobs "fall through the cracks." Techs do not need to physically come to the office for their assignments each day which saves time and money since they can access their Jobber assignments through their phones.

  • Time Details on Billing

Jobber - Field Service Software
  • The recurring job feature was key to our decision in selecting Jobber. There's a lot of flexibility in how you schedule recurring work. I especially like that you can select the frequency (weekly, monthly) coupled with either a specific date or day of the week/month.
  • Client email reminders help our clients know when we're coming and provide an important point of contact. Customizing the email was easy.
  • Client overview. It's extremely helpful to be able to view a client's record and see the upcoming visits along with the completed work.

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.

  • Pricey. They should consider some more affordable options.
  • Design. As we ramped up our visual identity we were looking for a more modern design.
  • To include visible discounting options on quotes, for example.

Jobber - Field Service Software
It is usable in multiple settings, but in my opinion preferably for small to medium-sized organizations. It covers the process as a whole and can be used in any segment (from creating a quote to client communication). The mobile app is very usable, intuitive, and especially useful for people working in the field

Jobber - Field Service Software
There is hardly an app that covers it all while staying simple and wrapping up the process. From the filing of the request, everything goes smoothly following a natural progression. Reports are insightful, give you an instant overview and easy to understand. In addition, you can easily track any information from those on clients to expense tracking.

We have also used BidClips. I find that Advantage gave us more flexibility with custom estimates & report tracking.

  • This has helped us keep costs down by routing our jobs more efficiently. Specifically, it saves tons of time in routing the jobs, but also saves time/fuel for our drivers.
