Comments: Better management of our service department.

Pros: First and foremost, it is integrated with our Dynamics GP software which is a must for us. It also does very well all parts of service management : Service calls, Service contracts, ...

Cons: Some components (such as mobile workers) can become very expensive. With the Dynamics GP integration, it is a complex solution which takes knowledgeable people to deploy and maintain.

Integration of job cost module and MS Great Plains.

Pros: Tightly integrates job modules to Great Plains as well as mobile products that are not part of the Microsoft GP package. Service packs, hot fixes and tiered support levels are fast and effective. This vendor works well with their client base.

Cons: This vendor has went through a few organizational changes in the past several years.

Pros: The software is fairly intuitive and easy to use. We have had this product for over 8 years now and the employees at KEY2ACT are like family.

Cons: In most recent years, the software releases seemed to be rushed and while adding features, seemed to be to the detriment of other features. They have since been purchased by a company that has helped them to refocus the product - a major plus!
