This is great if only used for job costing.

TurboBid

TurboBid is well suited to serve as an on-premise estimating software solution for small and midsize contractors. The type of work associated with the project may include new residential, light commercial, remodeling, service work, flat-rate pricing, or just about any application! The software is less suited for large contractors that may wish to communicate information within a network domain.

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.
Sarah Hooley | TrustRadius Reviewer

TurboBid

  • Slight learning curve for users.
  • Navigation through the program may not appeal to all.
  • The program can be pricey.

I dealt with one individual and the owner. After making me feel stupid for not being able to get an up to date price list from my suppliers, they decided to try. There were unsuccessful as well. The right thing to do would have been to refund my money, but they refused to do that. I was lied to and basically called a liar on many occasions (including in emails). I have never had an experience like this with a company before. Most of the other companies guarantee their products and would refund your money if something was wrong, didn't work or you were unsatisfied. Not this company! They could care less once they have their money.

Alternatives Considered

Knowify

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.

TurboBid

Turbo bid is perfect for small and midsize contractor users in need of estimating projects. The software comes with excellent customer service and is easy to understand program navigation within a short period of time. The program goes into extreme detail with many capabilities for accounting and estimating. For example, the software has the ability to calculate the material installation time, which not all program competition can do.

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.

TurboBid

  • It cost me money for the software that I will never get back.
