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.

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.

  • Constant emails regarding projects that do not apply to our trade
  • Constant emails regarding projects are not in our area of work

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

PlanHub offers great free access as well as a multitude of benefits for paid subscriptions. Other software requires an invitation to bid, but PlanHub has a library of projects that can fit any company's needs.
