IFS has a lot of capabilities. Whatever ideas we come up with that could better help our needs, it's possible to create. Not only are we able to configure the system as necessary for our needs, the IFS team is always considering our ideas for new updates. This most recent update, 5.7 has a great new look and efficiency. Our support team at IFS has also been so helpful and a joy to work with. I think that is one of the most important things when working with any company--that you get the support you need when you need it.
The only thing I dislike is the struggle it can be to install the mobile app. It's not a very hard process, but it's not intuitive to users who are not tech comfortable/savvy--it's not as easy as many are used to with just going to the App Store or Playstore. We are looking to combat that but using program where we can push updates and install the apps from a central location.
We're able to easily manage our technicians' schedule, where they're at, communication, and their data for invoicing. With lobbies we're able to easily visualize anything that has fallen through the cracks or needs attention, i.e., unbilled charges, old tasks needing to be completed, open quotes, etc. A couple new features we're able to use with this update, 5.7, is a follow-up task screen on the mobile app that allows users to create a follow-up task for them or someone else to go back out there and finish the job another day, a view of all unassigned tasks under their team, which they can pull from when they need additional work, as well as a geo-fence that can trigger status changes when a tech enters the vicinity. These are just a few of the new features that are going to improve our efficiencies and make our folks job better.
