This is great if only used for job costing.

Pipeline Suite
Pipeline Suite is a very niche product, but for anyone who has ever dealt with the construction bidding process, you can understand the need for it. With Pipeline Suite, it is so easy to request bids, share documents and plans, and coordinate schedules for submittals. We are able to prequalify sub contractors and vendors at a faster pace as well with the product

Cons
Knowify
  • Syncing with QuickBooks could be a little better, only syncs to main customer and not projects.
  • Does not have the ability to be used in the field.
  • Cannot collect payment or invoice from the field, only office staff can do this which makes for a lot of missed money collection.

  • The onboarding process was difficult for us just because we had some pretty disorganized databases.
  • The product is pricey for small to medium sized firms.

I have found that the customer support team has an understanding of the construction bidding process. They have been able to see issues through our eyes, so to speak, not just through the eyes of a software company. They have always been very timely in their responses and seem to go above and beyond to solve issues

Knowify does job costing which HouseCall Pro does not, it syncs with QuickBooks a little better than HouseCall Pro but does not allow our technicians to invoice from the field which is crucial.

I don't have a lot of personal experience with SmartBid, but from what I hear from other colleagues, Pipeline Suite makes it easier for subcontractors to access documents/plans and to respond to bids. The interface and design of Pipeline Suite is more modern and the user experience is a major upgrade from SmartBid

Return on Investment
Knowify
  • Keeps good track of all bills and expenses.
  • It would be nice to be able to see a list of all bills and not have to look under each project/job.
  • Allows us to see if a job is headed south and quickly correct it.
