Strong potential but still growing.

2017-04-18

I was placed in charge of the programs setup and roll out and once I learned the software, the options and customizability are pretty incredible.

Pros

Automates some of our processes.

Cons

iPads crash frequently and any time we make admin changes in the system, the system has a fairly large mishap of some kind.

Recommendations to others considering Bolt

BOLT needs to develop a customer service team dedicated to customers calling in with issues for a faster response. I have called our account rep. and never had a return call. Usually, if he does it'll be a text at the end of the day stating that he'll reach me tomorrow. It feels like I have to follow up with him most of the time.

Just not the right fit for us

2016-10-03

We wanted it to be easy to use and highly functional. Just based on the appearance and basic functionality of Bolt, this was not the product we were looking for.

It's all OK.

2017-04-24

As a purchasing agent, there very little advantage to the software. Calendar is what I use he most,but not much advantage to the calendar on Outlook, except i can let the installers know the material is ready, but they can see that in the warehouse.

Pros

Nice for scheduling and capability of getting feedback from employees.
