This is great if only used for job costing.

Advanced Electrical Technologies, Inc.
It is very adaptable to our business plan. Also, it is very cost-effective than any other software I used while working with previous companies. Also, as previously mentioned it helps a lot with our takeoffs, customers know what the job consists of, and what our costs are, and make it easy to pass on job management items to others.

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.

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.

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.

We selected TurboBid because it was very cost-effective. The adaptability to use this program is also very easy and guidable. The database has a very large capacity. Along with the accuracy of the program as well. As you can see there are many reasons to go with TurboBid as it delivers to the contractors with ease.

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.
