In terms of accounting, our current accounting software Exchequer does not talk to BigChange, therefore there should be customized reports created to support it. The most complicated option is testing the report and understanding what is needed. The best job BigChange does is job related as described in previous questions.

Fullbay has been a game changer for our organization. The the ability to sent approval amount for each service order, causing a red flag if the total goes over that amount and requires you to contact customer for re-approval. Using the customer portal allows the customer to monitor repairs and to also book in a unit for repairs, allowing for fewer phone calls inquiring on status of unit.

  • Fullbay provides communication between departments exceptionally well. Each Department can tell what the other department is doing or needs to do. The flow of the communication is very natural too.
  • Fullbay's technical support is top-notch. I have had several instances where I didn't either understand something or couldn't figure out how I needed to accomplish a certain task. I would search their extensive knowledge base which is well laid out. If I couldn't find my answer there, I would just give them a ring. There readily available phone support either had the knowledge on hand or was willing to find out.
  • The work flow that Fullbay provides is very natural. We struggled as a shop of 4 techs to find organization & efficiency. Once we started using Fullbay, we found that paperwork became very minimal. We also understood some organizational processes that we had needed were missing. It forced us to start rethinking how our shop was laid out and how we did things. As changes were implemented because of the process FullBay used, we found ourselves becoming more efficient which in turn led to us hiring more techs to turn out more work using the same amount of office personal.

  • The notification feature inside Fullbay is about the only thing I would say needs improving. There is not an option to set up a text or email notification if a customer leaves a note on a service order. You have to watch the notification area. If you don't look at it regularly you could miss a note from the customer. Not a pitfall, but something that could use improving.

Fullbay support is excellent. Front end training was well presented and organized well. As we started using Fullbay support was a phone call or email away. Once training was completed the support team was ready to help with any challenges. If we found a glitch or issue using the program, one email and someone was on it to fix our issues.

  • Our shop had 4 tech producing 100 ttl hours / week. After implementing and understanding how to use Fullbay, we have been able to increase those numbers to 7 techs producing 250 ttl hours / week. All the while we are still using the same amount of office personal.
