About ControlBoard

ControlBoard is engineered from the ground up to solve the problem of resource scheduling, tracking and dispatching in the commercial construction industry. Unlike project planning in which activities are simply planned, ControlBoard directly addresses the need to allocate resources to a job for a specific period of time. Within 30 minutes you'll be scheduling resources more productively than with your current system.

Comments: A great software. The support is always a call away and responds fast with any issues or questions we have. A auto update would be a great addition. I would like to see a more complete report with minor change requirements in Excel. We come across glitches on occasion.

I have nothing but great things to say about this Company and this product

Comments: My experience with congistics' Control Board has been overwhelmingly positive. The software is incredibly functional and meets all of our needs. The only problem with congistics is that it takes some time to figure out which features benefit you and which do not. In the beginning, I attempted to use as many features as possible. I soon realized that i was spending too much time on scheduling (which is not my only task at work). Once I simplified my method of scheduling, I was able to make changes and updates much more quickly.

Formerly, we scheduled our jobs & equipment w/ excel spreadsheets. Congistics' Control Board was the only product I found that met my needs for a reasonable price.

We are a Sanitary & Storm water Pipeline evaluation firm with 115 employees and about 60 pieces of equipment moving around the Southeastern US.

Comments: After reviewing software for a dispatching solution for almost a year, 20 or 30 of them . This is by far the BEST. I've done the 'I'll hire a programmer to do custom software' and none of them stack-up to ControlBoard. I can't complain about one thing. If you need anything changed in the software pickup the phone and in less then 3 days I have an update and problem solved. Very reasonably priced, compared to the competition .

Great for scheduling manpower, equipment, crews to particular jobsites or projects.

Comments: Easier than a white board and it keeps history of what happened. Allows you to see what resources are available in the future and where all resources are at any time. You can do better planning which makes better use of resources and saves you money. Keeps track of rental equipment so you know when rental period is coming due.

great software for the right company fit

Comments: WE have saved so much time by allowing the manpower to review there own schedule. With the fast pace today schedules are changing all the way to the end of the day. This makes the communication so easy.

Excellent program for scheduling and managing resources.

Comments: Control Board is in a league of its own, after several years of research we finally found a product to meet our resource scheduling needs. Fast set up, easy to implement and crews can remotely view information without fear of accidentally changing or deleting something. Multi user access with real time changes while viewing is ideal for multi office/location use.

Powerful, easy to use and a great value

Comments: We researched several different platforms before choosing congistics. No one else we could find addresses the needs of heavy equipment and job scheduling as well as they do. The software is simple, adaptable and the support is great.

Pros: The vendor is extremely responsive and flexible. The product is also flexible, easy to use and easy to customize to your own circumstances.

Cons: I have very little bad to say about this product. For the money you spend you are getting a good value. The GUI is not as impressive as some if its more expensive competitors though.

Recommendations to other buyers: Map out your business process first before you launch Control Board. If you are in the construction industry this product will very likely be a good fit for you but it is only as good as your planning before implementation.
