Does what it does well

I would recommend Trail to any company that wants asset management and maintenance software first and some sales / rental pricing features second. Trail is an asset management platform and as such does this better than the quoting part. Would recommend it over other rental software

Pros

Trail is easy to implement and easy to use. As it is browser/cloud based it is easy to work with on all platforms and therefore the uptake by our employees was good.
The trail team in the 3 department I deal with are all good at keeping their answers concise and referred to others if appropriate but the answers are always swift in coming.
Having Trail relationship manager for our company means are questions are answered or items followed up in context to other discussions.

Cons

Reporting and print out formatting is the one down side of this software. This is handled well by the team writing custom reports so is not a big drawback and the Trail team are open to discussions about why the standard reporting is not applicable.

Response from Trail Systems

Hi Tiny, Thank you so much for taking the time to review Trail! We really appreciate the feedback and happy to hear that Trail is doing well!

Really nicely developed system to suit our needs. We don't use all of the functions but this gives us room to improve our own work methods to increase for example the service info and interval of our equipment.

Pros

System has brought us control over our equipment management we know exactly where anything is at any given moment. Also the ease of use since it is web based you can access it easily from anywhere and the system is very flexible and customizable to suit our needs. And of course the system is Finnish which is a big plus for us.

Cons

Sometimes we get bugs for example the system returns devices by it self for example if an device has been read out the system returns it immediately after reading it out. And since we have multiple categories that are shared to different departments that causes everyone to see all of reservations and would not be necessary, it is not a big issue and we are sure it could be resolved.

Response from Trail Systems

Hi Juha, Thank you for taking the time to review Trail! We're glad to hear that Trail suits your needs and more. We really appreciate all the feedback and regarding reservations, we will work on improving the user experience.

Sibelius Academy has used Trail since 2011. It has evolved quite a bit during that time and we're very happy with the product and support we're receiving.

Pros

Ease of use, new users learn to use Trail very fast. Customer support answers quickly solving most of the cases very fast. Trail Systems is always open to new things like "AV equipment loan equipment locker" that we built together a couple of years ago.

Cons

Implementing custom features is time consuming and expensive. Customers don't always get information about new features delivered for all Trail users for free.

Response from Trail Systems

Hi Marko, thank you for taking the time to review Trail! And happy to hear that You are happy with Trail and the support! We've also recognized the need to inform all users about product improvements better. We'll contact all customers about it shortly!

Keeping track of your gear

When you get used to the restrictions and learn some work-arounds it´s quite helpful

Pros

Borrowing out gear for students is quite straight forward.

Cons

The way locations, where the specific piece of gear is situated and where it has been borrowed to is a bit messy to read. You get a list of everything in a specific room at that moment. The next user does not know what is there only temporarily.

Response from Trail Systems

Hi Kaj, Thank you very much for taking the time to review Trail! We're very interested to hear about user experience and based on this, the clarity regarding locations is something that we'll take a close look at. Glad to hear that Trail is being helpful!
