Pros: Never loose a customer

Cons: Can be a little restrictive with some information.

Overall: We have been using commusoft for a good few years now. It has changed how we run our business. We no longer forget to invoice or loose customers because we have forgotten to get back to them. Commusoft helps us keep track of our engineers and proved a fluid service for our customers.

Comments: Commusoft helps collate all aspects of our business in 1 molding pot. It allows all aspects to be controlled from one central access point, meaning we don't need to use several different software packages.

Pros: Customer data base, quick to find out what you have done at a property,

Cons: need more training on how to use the software, now ive been using it a while, I'm sure there is plenty of bits I'm not using that I could be using

Overall: When you first start you should be given more one to one help, then mistakes wouldn't happen.
Bit disappointed with the diary and other features, cant understand why I've not been set up on the new system yet which looks a lot better.
Seem to be having lots of problems with the two systems together quick books and commusoft.

Recommendations to other buyers: need more one to one training, for the amount people are paying for the package

Hi Martin, we appreciate users have different roles/skills within a business, so we provide users access to our knowledge base which contains videos/guides about how to use the system. We have training programmes for 1-2-1 training, walking clients through the system and provide consultation on how to adhere to best practises when using the system. Let me know if you want more details. I've checked with the technical team regarding QB and cannot see open tickets with you on this, please email support@commusoft.co.uk who will be happy to help. As much as we would love to have all our clients on the new version, the process is not a simple software upgrade and much more like moving from one software to another. This means the process is longer and more complex. We┬┐ve already started migrating clients as part of the beta program so we can make sure we are ticking all the boxes as your data is important to us, as it is to you.

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: Some actions are not obvious, and I end up going round in circles

Overall: We have been using Commusoft software for a year now. the initial training over the telephone was in-depth and lots of support was given. The system is very user friendly and any problems are quickly sorted by the using the Help guides or via e-mail from Commusoft Support. The customer support team respond quickly and generally have an answer straight away.

The synchronisation between the main PC and the iPad is excellent (as long as there is a GPS signal!) and the engineers generally find it easy to use.

I would recommend this software, and I am looking forward to being transferred to the new updated version.

Could not live without it now.

Pros: Ease of use
Features
Service reminders
Job information is easy to find
Saves a lot of man hours.

Cons: Maybe a simpler to use mobile app - also some sort of small safety check form when signing off jobs
The system can be a bit slow from time to time but nothing serious.

Overall: After using other programs and services for a long while and finding that there were mistakes and errors causing many man hours wasted this was a breath of fresh air.

Once you have set this up and used it for the first year it begins to make you money. Services that you would have once missed or jobs that you mislaid are a thing of the past. The system takes a little to get used to but the support is very good and fast to respond. There are a few features that could improve it further but it is tailor made for the industry so has great features already.

Overall a fantastic piece of software which is currently undergoing an overhaul to improve it further. Would highly recommend for a single man to a large company.

Recommendations to other buyers: Would like to see google maps attached to customers addresses to show engineers. That could be very handy.

Pros: I like booking in jobs.

Cons: I don't like that you have to click boxes to see information about a job, ie, diary events.

Overall: Entering new customers onto the system works well and booking in estimates onto the calendar.
I like the ease of booking jobs on the system and the fact that our workmen have access to information about the job and the customer, including the make and the model of appliance they are going to repair/service/replace.
The sending out of service reminders is extremely helpful, but it would be helpful if there was the option to send a reminder to just one customer, not the whole group for that month.
Creating invoices works very well, being able to email them out to the customer upon completion of the work.
This system is being improved and we are happy to be part of trialing the new software, which hopefully with fix some of the things that we have asked for.

Recommendations to other buyers: Hopefully with the upgrade, some of the screens will link together better.

Pros: The dairy is easy to use and easy to drag and drop jobs if and when things change. Its also good in sending texts and emails to customers for service reminders and aftercare with out having to think about it

Cons: The importing of a current database and the uploading of parts can be long winded. but once done its very good

Overall: As a Company we had some good paper based systems in place. We were a bit unsure if going paperless was the right thing to do. The New Commusoft system has streamlined parts of the business that has now helped us be more efficient and thorough with certain aspects.

Recommendations to other buyers: My advice would be for anyone considering this as an option to spend the time at the start with a demo account really understanding the system and what it can do and then spend the time upfront to get your new system set up correctly. it can take a long time to set up but once done it does things automatically for you without you having to think. E.G service reminders by text or email and aftercare emails sent after jobs are complete plus other benefits

This has been exactly what we've been looking for to help streamline our business.

Comments:
The software is easy to use and has helped our business become more efficient.
We are portraying a much more professional image to our customers and we are saving time on our processes.
The level of service provided by the CommuSoft support team, especially NIsha who dealt with our on-boarding calls and integration, has been exemplary.
I have not come across any cons, so far!

Comments: Pros:
Easy to use, easy to book in jobs and send them to engineers. Feedback, certificates and parts make invoicing quick. Nisha was fantastic with our on-boarding. She was patient and explained everything in detail so me and the team were able to get setup and organising our jobs in under a week. Really friendly bunch that helped us get off a paper diary system!

Cons:
Looking forward to the new PAT test and electrical certificates which Nisha in their team informs me is due sometime over the summer. Can't wait.
