About Knowify

Know­ify is a mobile contractor management solution for small to medium contracting businesses and construction professionals who want to streamline their workflow for managing projects, scheduling, contracts, invoices, change orders, purchasing, and more. Users are able to track time, submit expenses, and check work orders from any mobile device, as well as sync data in real time.

Knowify provides built-in job costing and project management tools that enable users to estimate jobs and track performance. Project management features are fully integrated with purchasing and timekeeping for real-time monitoring against labor and materials budgets. The platform enables users to prepare bids for commercial GC jobs and contracts for property owners with e-signature capabilities. The built-in change order feature allows users to send change orders out for acceptance while on the go.

Dispatch management features allow users to create service tickets to send to technicians in the field. The platform supports both time and materials, as well as fixed price service tickets. Notifications are sent to on-site workers via mobile app, including additional photos, notes, and more. Users are able to view work orders, clock in and out, as well as add materials while on the go. Maintenance contract management tools enable users to schedule, track and bill service appointments with clients. Users can also get real-time cost and revenue data while jobs are in progress.

Knowify’s invoicing tools help users with billing time and materials, including progress billing, and milestone billing, as well as percentage completion, line-item-based, and more. Users can create AIA-style g702/g703 applications for payments to be submitted to commercial general contractors. Knowify’s mobile app for Android and iOS comes with features for GPS-verified clock in / clock out, timekeeping for on-site crew, and classic timecards. Users can integrate with QuickBooks to sync their list of vendors, classes, purchases, and employees for increased accountant productivity.

    We love sharing this software and its great features with our construction clients. To my mind there is no better job costing app on the market today for subcontractors and tradesmen in commercial construction.

    Pros

    The 2-way sync with QuickBooks; the ability to create AIA style billings directly out of the program (no duplicate entering); the integrations with great apps like ClockShark and Tsheets; the great dashboard on which you can monitor the profitability of each current job; the ease with which you can budget and bid from within the software; the wealth of available reports; and so much more.

    Cons

    Some improvements could be made to the service ticket side of the program to make it more comprehensive; if a PO is fulfilled in QuickBooks there is no way to match it in Knowify, so it has to be closed out manually on the Knowify side.

    Knowify allows me to better track materials and labor. Overall, it's alright as a support tool but I feel it still has a long way to go.

    Knowify Support basically refers to the user manual for any questions - may as well start there before contacting them.

    Pros

    Allows me to have a front-end to Quickbooks and provides for a little better job tracking. We previously tracked jobs manually. Knowify also has some helpful reports.

    Cons

    When you first start using Knowify, it is not user friendly. There are many "quirks" in the system. We have submitted requested all through 2018 for some of these to be addressed. Our company cannot be the only user experiencing some of these issues. Using Knowify has helped but is still lacking for my purposes. Examples: adding another default phase for Subcontractors - the entry of this data now is awful. Support has not be terrific. Job numbering - if jobs are initiated in Knowify or Quickbookos, if the are communicating properly, the LAST number issued should automatically populate. This does not happen, even though Support says to mark it in preferences - it is flagged.

    Quick billing, detailed job tracking, and flexibility.

    Pros

    It's easy to use. The layout of menus makes it incredibly easy to navigate. The importing into Quickbooks happens lightning fast. There's a myriad of ways to handle POs making billing incredibly convenient. And the reports are useful.

    Cons

    Searches can be difficult to return to. They lack pagination customization. Sometimes I'd like to see 100+ results per screen!

    Very happy with Knowify, it's continuously improving and great customer service. I highly recommend!!!

    Pros

    Great for creating and sending quotes, invoicing (syncs with QB), managing time entries from crew

    Cons

    It would be great if there was a pipeline for a project and if tasks could be created for project managers based on the stage in the pipeline. CRM could have touch points created for follow up with leads.
