As a self employed electrician I have used Powered now for my quotes/invoicing and its a must have

Pros: Powered Now is very simple and straight forward to use, very flexible and covers all aspects required by a tradesman or small business

Before I used Powered Now I was lost in a pile of scraps of paper which ultimately some customers got forgotten and did not get charged. Powered now brought everything into line it helped me manage the money and provide a more professional approach. Certainly my income went up when using it so it makes economical sense, on that one reason it made Powered now a no brainer. You enter a job when it comes in, send out quote, customer accepts on line, choose a date in the calendar for completion, raise invoice and send, customer opens (you get a message to say they have) they pay you direct into your account you send a receipt. Not a pen or paper needed or in sight

Searching for unpaid invoices is there at a glance, I send a reminder and generally they are then paid. No files, folders cabinets or piles of papers what's not to like. Help desk team are very effective always prompt with their help and service and in the few times I have needed them they have never failed. (Embarrassingly it was usually my fault)

I love the way you can personalise your invoices and quotes. My customers also love it. One letting agency said they thought I had employed someone to do my admin

Cons: There is nothing to dislike as it's a very flexible package, you tailor it to suit yourself, it's has many options. Love the report facility

Help desk team are very effective always prompt with their help and service and in the few times I have needed them they have never failed. (Embarrassingly it was usually my fault)

Feel let down by this company . They changed there prices even though they promised they wouldn't

Pros: The software is very good it. It does save time especially when you are on site.

I enjoy using the program

Cons: I have no complaints about the software

The software is good.

The issue lies on untrained staff.

I like the idea of the software. It makes my life easier.

Now if you know this company, they have the ability to tell you when a client has opened your quotation, and can inform you when a client has opened up quotes ,this has always been a useful tool , however I have tried to locate an email , that I received detailing how my subscription would never go up, that for some reason or another has mysteriously disappeared from my inbox ...

Not only this, they didn't even let me know this would be happening.

BE VERY CAREFUL with this company or any offers they try give you

Powered now: There is no letter I in team. You would do well to remember that. Try working with your tradesmen, maybe call them to discuss your plan to up payments as you have made a mistake, work with them to build your company not against them.

Like you have admitted on a recent telephone call that I was on that package but it's changed.

My company will only ever tell the truth, I'm not out to cause any grievance to powered now.

Brilliant, the most user friendly software and best support I've come across.

Pros: It's just so easy to use! I see any form of tech as a tool not a hobby like some. It just works very easily so intuitive. Support staff are amazing through my own ignorance I'm realising I'm probably only using about half of what is available to me, but support staff have kindly pointed this out and booked me in a refresher session on features etc. Thing I like most is they add features based on feed back of people like me (electrician) so your getting additions you actually want not what a tech guy thinks you want.

Cons: None brilliant all round couldn't recommend more, don't hesitate, support is great, software is great.

Overall: It's great pretty much all I need day to day as electrical contractor

Powerednow has been part of my business for the last two years and I would be lost without it now!

Pros: I love the user interface for this software. Everything works seamlessly within its self, the transition from customer to the dairy, then from quote to invoice is nothing but smooth.

The support team behind the scenes always go out of their way to help, even if it means working out of hours.

Cons: It is very hard to find something to dislike about the software. These are more points of what features I would like to see in the future:

The ability to create gas safety certificates (which is soon to come)

To also be able to view my personal diary with business.

More integrations with third-party apps such as free agent and todoist.

Pros: I run a training company and I have been using Powered Now for about two months. The software is awesome and has saved me countless hours of paperwork. The support is EXEMPLARY.... even before I was a customer, I messaged a question at 8pm on a Friday night and got a live response from a REAL person (Liam) in seconds. Nothing is a problem for them. Graham gave me a live demo and spent over a hour with me showing how Powered Now could help my business, at this stage I wasn't even a customer. I was so impressed, I signed up. So how much for this level of service? You'd expect it to cost a fortune wouldn't you. If I said stop drinking that high street coffee for a month.... and here's the best part if you opt for the two year deal it's even less money...

Cons: NONE

Overall: The software is awesome and has saved me countless hours of paperwork. The support is EXEMPLARY.....

Recommendations to other buyers: You can even down load a free version to try - a total win win..... I love it..... Why not try it now? I promise you won't be disappointed.

Pros: Very helpful support staff. Very easy to use for our team members. It saves me a great deal of time when producing my quotations and invoices.

Cons: Minor cons are the diary could be more like a google calendar etc. Page break option on the quote and invoice documents would be useful.

Slight learning curve but after that, works amazing!

Comments: Setup is a breeze. You enter the name of the company, chose a profession and company size and country plus the currency. I mean, the setup really isn't rocketscience. I've seen apps that do less than Powered Now that make it much harder to apply for an account. Plus it keeps with their own UI making the setup look nice as well.

After filling in your VAT info you get to choose a snazzy layout. You have 15 versions for your invoice so enough to pick from. Adding a logo is easy as well, just put it on your dropbox, tablet, google drive or take a photo of it (why would you even do that???).

After setup you will be mailed a copy of test invoice, if it looks good, continue.

Making appointments or invoices has the same ease as setting up the software. Choose the customer (either add them now, or choose a repeat customer) and fill in all the information. Customer will get a text and an e-mail with the invoice.

Now stop reading and get invoicing!

Comments: Powered Now is brilliant! It allows me to create quotes for jobs while I'm on the go and work on multiple projects at once, all in one place. Its multi-platform usability is great as I have both Mac OS and an Android device, so whether I'm at home or out and about, I can reply to my customers quickly and efficiently. I once wrote out an invoice while on a ferry between jobs.

The schedule facility has made it so much easier to organise my diary and look up the quotes and invoices that have been sent out, without having to trawl through emails or a paper-calendar.

I often get comments from customers about how professional my quotes and invoices look in comparison to other traders they've used, which helps me improve my brand and reputation.

Superb app - so simple even my 70 year old father uses it to store estimates & create invoices

Comments: From day 1 we found this app a perfect fit for our small gardening services business. Either of us can pick it up, find out what estimate a customer has been given, email off an invoice or schedule in appointments...or simply know what job the other one is on.

We've even recently teamed this up with a Paypal chip & pin device so we can take card payments there and then as often our customers don't have cash around and we used to have to make additional visits to collect money...or wait 2 weeks until we were next due back at the property. Was a total hassle that we no longer have!

Love this little Genius

Pros: Very user friendly - Finally a reliable software and App that keeps everything in place. I also love the fresh look of Powered now. I will highly recommend it!

Cons: I would have loved to have had the template full customisable. but I can understand that if you are not into graphic design that could be a pain. I would still love to see that in future

Comments: As the owner of a technology company myself, I'm often building websites and facebook pages for trades clients and PoweredNow is a staple 'go-to' software application for all of my clients. The ability to handle quotes, right through to invoicing means the client never has to worry about missing finances and it's scheduling capabilities means that my clients always know where they're going and what they're doing.
