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.

I think that anyone who tracks, sends or collects lien waivers needs to use this software. One scenario where it is extremely helpful is creating one-off documents with their documents tool that allows you to create certain documents as needed.

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 don't particularly like the layout of the software when viewing subs and the waivers they have turned in

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

Return on Investment
HomeTech Information Systems
  • Advantage has everything to do with our company's ability to run an effective back office.
  • When you have a company that does a wide variety of concurrent projects, you need a great tool to manage it all. Advantage does that for us.
  • As I am unfamiliar with the pricing model (I'm not a member of the team that negotiates this particular product), I can't provide any true ROI from an overall business perspective.
