“Control Board was a Godsend ”

OverallOverall it's been great. We have only been using it for about 3 months but it's been great, and the customer service goes above and beyond when you have any issues at all.
ProsExcellent and very patient customer service who are every responsive, helpful, and eager to please. We don't necessarily use or know how to use all of the features but this has certainly brought us into a whole new league and we no longer run into scheduling conflicts as we used to do. It has been a Godsend to us, and I don't know how we managed without it.
ConsI cannot think of any negatives to the software. It has all of the features we need, and the ones we don't need we simply do not use them.

“Easy to use and adaptable to any business”

OverallMy 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.

“It is a great product that is easy to form to our company needs”

OverallPros: Customer Service is always there for you and gets back to you by the end of the day if not sooner. They have adapoted the program to work best for our company. They are willing to show me different things available on their program that they feel will help our company. The app is very easy to use and I love how it updates in conjunction to what I update in the program. They check in every few months to see how it is going and to see if there are any updates that they can make it make it easier for us. Cons: I really can not think of any

“The best software you will find for dispatching PERIOD.”

OverallAfter 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 .

“Excellent program for scheduling and managing resources. ”

OverallControl 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.

“Well designed for the construction industry”

ProsThe vendor is extremely responsive and flexible. The product is also flexible, easy to use and easy to customize to your own circumstances.
ConsI 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 buyersMap 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.

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

OverallEasier 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”

OverallMark with control board is fantastic for customer service and he is technically outstanding. He really knows his stuff. This has made implementation so much easier. Cons: very very few, a couple minor technical items that we wish the software could do. Again, overall, we are extremely pleased with the product.

“Easy to use and gets the required information out to the resources in the field. ”

OverallA 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.

“SAVED SO MANY HOURS IN SCHEDULING AND JUGGLING MANPOWER”
