Saves time for both technicians and office staff.

This software has the ability for technicians to web sync while in the field. This means if the office changes the schedule they can see the changes. Also if the tech is running ahead or behind of schedule there is real time updates and then can be adjusted saving tons of time and definitely money. The developers are constantly improving the software by updating reporting features or adding programs such as Hindsite Connect. Having the ability to email customers confirmations and marketing material directly from the software will save time since we will not have to export and sort the information in another program.

Hindsite Great for Service Related Industries

We contiue to be grateful for all the details that Hindsite has allowed us to manage for our business. Our customers also find GREAT value in the fact that they can call the office and get highly detailed answers from office staff very quickly and efficiently (thanks to the HISTORY feature). As an office administrator, scheduling multiple technicians for multiple services (estimates, repairs, installations etc.) has become MUCH easier with HindSite Software. Using HindSite software in conjunction with a mapping software allows us to schedule appointments much more efficiently by location, eliminating a great deal of drive time. Many service related industries can benefit from HindSite. If you're IN to details, HindSite is the program for your business. There are many ways to track time records for employees and several mapping features that are sure to be helpful.

Pros

The biggest PRO I think HindSite offers is the CUSTOM REPORTS - you can pull just about any report needed for about any situation for any data captured. Another favorite feature is ADD-A-NOTE. This lets you attach a note to the customer (ie. calls made to or received from) and keeps it with that contact. SPECIAL NEEDS is an amazing feature for the office personnel to allow them quick information about a customer such as "HIS name is Kelly, HERS is Jean" or "Must pay past due balance prior to scheduling next service". Then there's PDA SPECIAL NEEDS is great for service technicians. It's a special 'pop-up message' that appears as they time in to a job and allows us to warn technicians for items such as Dogs, warranty void, or other items that only pertain to that particular customer. REMINDERS is another one of my favorite features for tasks you don't want to forget for the future. HISTORY keeps all data at your fingertips for all services rendered. There are MANY more benefits too!

Cons

If you want to review work schedules from a past dates, you will only be able to view the data that exists with current employees who are licensed. All of the data for each customer still exists in the HISTORY, its just that you cannot expect all the appointments to be in a screen where you can view the schedule as it was from a past date. The exception to this would be if you retain the same staff/licenses. Moving appointments or changing from one date to another is very easy - sometimes too easy. If you're not careful it's possible to accidently relocate a scheduled appointment to a date or time that wasn't intended.

overall ok

The product overall is not bad but is missing key features compared to what the leading competitors offer for the same price. Customer service however is horrible. Cannot reach ANYONE when you call sales or service. Even after multiple voicemails it is impossible to get a call back within the same day.

Pros

I like the ease of scheduling and all the features/notes in the clients data.

Cons

Not being able to take payment directly from the mobile app is a big issue. The only way to take payment was to go back to the web browser and sync the program to quickbooks for my invoice to show. This is a huge waste of time and extra steps. Would also like to create invoice without scheduling and attending an appointment for clients.

Good product idea just not easy to make changes

Don’t use apple devices with this software because it won’t work properly

Pros

Having contracts in the system and knowing that once they are completed they will get billed properly.

Cons

Anytime you need to make a change to a contract it seems like it is easier to delete the current one and add a new one.

Quite frankly, I couldn't imagine doing my job without this software. It is a must have for...

Overall my experience has been great. The staff and HindSite really support their product to the best of their abilities, and their attitude makes the small nuances in the software easy to overlook.

Pros

The support staff is phenomenal, they are always helpful and informative, and are never afraid to admit if they need help from a superior. I have had great experiences with every level of personnel they have. The software itself is very thorough, almost overwhelming, without a little direction. The ease of scheduling and ability to customize to your own specific requirements is great, and the integration with QuickBooks makes invoicing mostly a breeze. The contracts and marketing aspects which tie everything together really make it a must have for any service based company, especially in their industry-specific niche. Keeping track of parts & products for billing and inventory is SO easy.

Cons

Not cloud or web-based: lose power at the office, and the mobile techs can be at a loss. So many options and features make development a little slow, and tweaking existing products to perfection is can be hampered by new feature additions. Sometimes contract labor conversions to QuickBooks invoicing can be glitchy.
