Movista

Mobile solution for managing field reps, task teams & fleets

About Movista

Movista is a cloud-based field management solution for mobile workforces in retail which is designed to help improve the execution of in-store merchandising. The software offers tools for managing tasks, scheduling, item ordering, time tracking, file sharing, expense reporting, location tracking, and more.

Movista provides managers with access to a real-time map of employee locations, allowing them to monitor attendance and performance. Locations can be geo-fenced to ensure that reps can only clock in and out from the correct location, with GPS verification and time stamping of time records. Employees can also be required to submit real-time photos to verify task completion. Movista’s native apps for Android and iOS provide employees with access to all important information from anywhere, and enable clocking in/out, task completion recording, route management, mileage and expense reporting, and the delivery of exception alerts for incorrect locations.

Key benefits of Movista

  • The map gives users a color-coded view of all reps and stores in real-time, enabling real-time monitoring of attendance and performance.

  • Geo-fencing technology ensures that reps are completing tasks in the correct location, and GPS verification for clock-in and clock-out aims to improve the accuracy of timesheets and mileage records.

  • Employees are given centralized access to project information, task assignments, and suggested routes with GPS, and can provide photographs of completed tasks in real time to verify that tasks have been executed.

  • Exception reports and alerts notify users to any reps who may not be in the correct location.

  • Real-time store data and centralized planning and scheduling tools help users manage demand forecasting, resource planning, and product stocking.

    Overall experience is great once you get the system customized the exact way you need it, almost everything can be done that a business would need done and then some. Tracking employees time in and time out, employees can track their own information for ease of use and transparency, and our REP [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been absolutely fabulous helping us with getting this off the ground and so much more.

    Pros

    It can track a lot of different information that also lets you customize reports in a lot of different ways to present to clients while also helping you understand your own business to be more efficient personally.

    Cons

    Somethings out of the box were missing that needed to be customized for a cost, like prices on invoicing or line totals weren't able to be done without customization.

    Response from Movista

    Your review demonstrates our intent with the Movista product suite - thank you for sharing. All leaders are building their retail business strategy based on metrics via reporting and we're glad Movista is providing you with that data. Movista continues to be an innovative leader in this space as we we will be releasing new analytics functionality very soon!

    We have better visibility of our reps activity because of Movista. Our Movista account manager is very responsive and has been a great support to us, but we feel a disconnect as it does not seem that she is in-tune with how we specifically are using the platform. We have begun to gain valuable data from the system but the reporting functionality needs improvement.

    Pros

    I like being able to monitor rep activity using the Work Log and Breadcrumb Trail. I find it easy to manage a large number of locations (8,000+) and reps (300+) in this system and updates are made quickly when I request them. The custom fields within Movista allow us to truly customize the platform to our needs and we can set-up a wide variety of projects and narrow down which retailers/reps are assigned to them.

    Cons

    The payroll aspect of Movista was a large selling point for us but ultimately was not functional for our needs and was a source of confusion for our reps and managers. We ended up reverting back to our former payroll management platform. Also, the format in which data exports from Movista is often difficult to manipulate or use effectively for internal reports. We have voiced suggestions to improve the functionality of Movista but have learned that the development request process is very slow.

    Response from Movista

    Thank you for the compliments on the platform and the customer support we provide. We take pride in our work and love to hear comments about the rep activity and the work log. Your ability to manage locations and reps is important in today's ever-changing world, and we're honored to play a role.

    We're committed to continuous improvement and we value your partnership greatly. We're rapidly adding talent to our team which allows us to develop and improve faster for our clients. All of our development and testing is done in house, and until something is 100% ready, we don't release a new build.

    We appreciate our relationship and look forward to continuing to build our partnership. We're particularly excited about the improvements you mention regarding reporting and we're always here to capture other improvements you'd like to see prioritized in our product road map.

    I continue to learn new things abut NI all the time. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has always been very helpful with my questions, especially in the beginning. NI has made my life much easier since the IVR days so I'd have to say my experience has been a good one!

    Pros

    The visibility of visits and how we're progressing with a project is a big plus for me. We were using an IVR system prior to NI so this was a huge jump for us. The ability for a rep to schedule his/her visits or the fact that we can schedule their visits is so important. Loading visits, updating visits and deleting visits in bulk is very easy.

    I was part of the team that interviewed different platforms as well as transitioned our move to NI. It was a long and tedious process. There was lots of testing and we ran two systems simultaneously for a while but was definitely worth it.

    Cons

    There was a lot to learn when we first started using NI. It was such a different environment than what we were all used to. It was slow at first to learn all that NI could do for us. I think it would have helped if someone from NI learned more about our company so they could have helped us better utilize NI from the beginning.

    Now that we know what NI is capable of, we want more. More automation, less data pulls into an excel files. Making it easier for reps to identify their assigned visits would be a big plus. Communication between us and our reps could be better. I would be nice to get updates implemented quicker but understand there is a process.

    Response from Movista

    Elaine,

    Thank you for sharing your journey with Natural Insight/Movista and the positive impact it has had on your store execution. Also appreciate the shout out for the customer success team, specifically Jon.
