BuildOps
BuildOps is well suited for any HVAC or commercial construction business there is no question about it. If you have teams of people in the field and you want to track them and the jobs and reduce the paperwork - think BuildOps. Their operations side functionality is strong too - quoting, invoicing, asset tracking, etc.

Harpoon
I think Harpoon works best for freelancers, consultants, self employed people and smaller companies with less client to bill. For larger enterprises with hundreds or thousands of clients, there are larger, more intricate platforms in the market that are better suited for those needs.

Cons
BuildOps
No answers on this topic
Harpoon
  • Sometimes expense reporting bring up duplicate transactions, which may be more of a fault of the API that connects my account, which is Plaid
  • Would be nice if in the future, they can offer ACH as one of the payment options for invoices
  • There are some redundancies that pop up when setting time frames for client work and the projects attached to them. If they aren't aligned, it can cause inaccurate reporting. If it just sent it once and it took care of both functions, it would be easier

The few times I've needed help or had questions about the platform, the founder got back to me. And fairly fast. The extra effort resonated well with me

I've used Less Accounting and & Quickbooks Online. After Less Accounting was acquired, its development was mostly stopped. While the tool was a simple way to manage invoices and expenses, its directional philosophy changed with the new owners. Quickbooks Online was a solid tool, but the company support was unhelpful and hard to work with at times. Harpoon provides a great tool, with a company that cares about its users.
