This is great if only used for job costing.

PRO Unlimited
When working with a VMS or MSP I must say PRO is one of the best to use. You are able to manage multiple clients within the same portal, very user-friendly, able to go to one location for all recruitment needs, management needs, sales and accounting needs. It helps organize recruitment needs and make sure that candidates are within budget. With this program, I do not have to worry about aging reports or outstanding invoices

  • As compared to other VMSs out there, Wand does allow for more information to be entered. In particular, I don't like when there are little to no free-form fields in a VMS, as you cannot truly explain a candidate's experiences without free-form entry.
  • Notifications actually explain what is happening. Some VMSs send notifications that require you to login to see the activity. It's nice to see the info come directly to me in an email.

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.

  • It would be helpful in the beginning to see if the opportunity is exempt or non-exempt
  • The timing out of session could be extended a few more minutes longer
  • When adding a candidates email
  • Easier way to update a candidates profile and updated resume

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.

Again, I didn't specifically select the Wand system; our client selected it, and I work with it. However, I have used several VMSs as well, so I feel as though I can compare from a user perspective. Wand isn't great - I prefer Fieldglass for sure, mostly for it's simplicity. IQNavigator, Beeline, and PeopleFluent are all similar to Wand in that they tend to be over-complicated, with a lot of steps involved in the submittal process that aren't relevant to the hiring process. And none are all that intuitive. However, in my experience, the people at PRO are top-notch, and more helpful than almost any others from other VMSs with whom I have worked. I'm not sure if that is strictly a function of the client environment, or PRO itself, but it's worth remarking on.

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.

PRO Unlimited
  • Saves time on all aspects of organization
  • Only negative is that there is not a real connection with the managers from a Recruitment or Sales point of view - but understand they are prob bombarded by sales calls
  • Very helpful tool to keep process and procedures in place
