Flowfinity solved our numerous field service challenges with ease and great service

Review Source: Capterra

We deployed a cross nation field team to visit outlets and conduct in store activities, collecting data through forms and surveys.

We also needed features like gps tracking, mature data storage and extraction, cloud enabled, dashboard creation and performance tracking.

Our previous solution - built specifically for our industry - was a disaster - combination of the software and the supporting team. 5-6 months in and it never worked.

By contrast, Flowfinity created a partnership, held our hand day and night for 5 weeks, answered all queries in real time round the clock, and best of all - it worked. Took 5 weeks from start to finish.

Simply could not be more satisfied and wish we had found the solution 6 months earlier.

I highly recommend the solution and the Team.

Pros

Flowfinity is a mature solution. Our sales and on-board team were former clients, highly engaged advocates of the product, very knowledgeable, patient, and very thorough. Though we are not a big client (less than 20 licenses) we were treated with respect, as important, and received amazing round the clock responses to both strategic and technical questions.

The solution is highly intuitive and easy to use. Our development team is good, but small and stretched. With flowfinity we were able to get to a solid usage standard, and deployed, in 5 weeks. That's fully operational in 5 weeks.

In contrast we worked with previous solution for about 5 months and it never worked.

Cons

Like all solutions this one does not do everything we want. Neither does any other solution we use. What we really like about Flowfinity is that their Team takes on board our inputs, requests, and gives us honest management of our expectations around feasibility, timeframes, costs, etc.

This type of honest and transparent handling of what we want that perhaps we cannot have is difficult to find in the market - with Flowfinity we got it.

Response from Flowfinity Wireless

Hello Brett,

Thank you for your honest and enthusiastic review of Flowfinity. Thank you for highlighting our commitment to customer service, and the fact that you went from concept to deployment of your app within 5 weeks, congratulations on your success with the platform!

We acknowledge that software cannot always meet all "nice to have" requirements, and we try to manage expectations accordingly.

It's great to hear that you are reaping benefits from your custom solution over your previous off the shelf system.

We look forward to working with you going forward to help drive your success.

Best Regards,

-Team Flowfinity

Flowfinity Overview

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/07/31
Review Source: Capterra

Flowfinity has closed the gap between head office directors, our leadership team and our crews in the visibility of information and the speed with which we can communicate it.

The application provides all of us with the same information at a glance - estimate volume by regions - upcoming work at a glance, bottlenecks to meeting deadlines, in progress and final costing outcomes.

Crews use the app daily on their phones and IPADs to input real time records, checklists, signatures, safety toolbox talks and important safety initiatives.

To highlight safety specifically, the Safety portal alone is worth all we've done to customize Flowfinity for our group - and it came well after the initial design! Safety is crucial in our crew environments, and we have been able to create a platform and entire section in Flowfinity devoted to communications, training and initiatives for our teams. We don't have a company with the current safety reputation we have on large sites without a team that goes home each day safely.

Pros

Flowfinity brings our group together and creates TRANSPARENCY across the board. We need this since our team is all over the US and head office is in Canada.

Cons

Some of the user functionality is limiting - we are so used to 'back button's and split screens in other applications and systems. Reporting is also limited as Flowfinity captures information, and can provide the data for use, but it does not provide or currently have the ability to create customized, easy to view reporting.

Response from Flowfinity Wireless

Hello Angie,

Thank you for your thoughtful review of Flowfinity. It's great to hear your team is experiencing tangible benefits in transparency and communication from your apps. If you ever have any questions or concerns we're here to help.

Built a custom solution for managing a SMB - staff time tracking, client database, invoicing

-Reduced administrative overhead by about 80%

Pros

-Completely flexible to use, lets you build truly customized solution completely tailored to your business processes
-Great value, because you get offline mobile forms and apps, a built-in database, cloud hosting, unlimited forms, dashboards and workflows all included
-Easy to use and super fast to make changes, so you can always improve your solution and keep updating it based on user feedback
-Can build all the BPM apps you need without any coding
-After you build an application, you can use it on the web or on your mobile device right away as soon as you publish it
-It's easy to set up data lookups from other apps, so you can manage your customers in one app and pull the information into other apps for example
-It has nested data which lets you create lists with different levels, which we use for creating items in invoices
-You can set up custom searches so it's easy to find whatever data you're looking for
-I was able to easily set up automatic emails that alert me based on my own business rules, for example if a client doesn't come to their appointment, or is missing contact information, or if a payout rate is outside a certain threshold
-They recently added dashboards, so I can see all of my invoicing and staffing information in charts and I don't have to export any data to Excel or another system to work with it, it's all in Flowfinity

Cons

-Looking forward to new product features that will be coming out, for example being able to launch into apps and activities directly from dashboards

A great experience

We are using FlowFinity to do several different things. It is our main data capture tool. Our fleet of trucks and drivers enter all delivery and pickup metrics in it on a continual basis. We use it to schedule our work orders and ensure all goods are picked up and delivered. We also use the system to gather general information throughout our business.

Pros

FlowFinity has been a great system and has enhanced our operations. It's easy to set up and seems to be infinitely adaptable to our business. If we have a need we just add it to FlowFinity. The system is light weight and does not take a lot to run. The user interface on the mobile device and the website are great and easy to use and learn. We have had advanced users and novice users all pick it up and use it in very little time

Cons

Not many Cons it has really transformed how we work. If I had to define a least favourite item it would be the reports. I wish we could add more branding to them but that is minor to the rest of the system.

Response from Flowfinity Wireless

Hello Elliot,

Thank you, we really appreciate your insight. It's great your team is finding value in the platform. We'll take your request about branding on reports into consideration to include in a future release.

Great product with even better customer service

Used Daily for 1-5 months

Review Source: Capterra

We have had a very positive experience with Flowfinity so far. We are using it to eliminate paper being used in our plants, so data is more easily accessible and the lag time of paper getting from the field to the office is eliminated as well.

Pros

It is very customizable for our individual business needs, straightforward to learn how to build new forms, and well-organized to separate different plants/areas.

Cons

The language/syntax used in formulas for conditional questions isn't the most intuitive, but that con is totally offset by the awesome customer service they provide to help you achieve what you're trying to do.

Response from Flowfinity Wireless

Hello Megan,

Thank you for taking the time to review your experiences with Flowfinity. We appreciate your feedback and we're pleased to hear you are having success with the system.

Formulas are one of the more complex aspects of the platform, however they are such a powerful tool when used effectively. Our formula syntax is based on SQL syntax which we hoped would be a better known standard for most users. That said familiar with database structures is not a requirement to use and benefit from Flowfinity.

We're happy to hear you received the help you needed from our customer success team, here are some resources on formula calculations and text manipulation from our knowledge base:
