Overall very happy user. Thank you!

Pros
I used ArboStar for over three years. Basically it was backbone of our business. We did everything there from payroll and accounting to estimating and invoicing. Features that I loved the most was communication, inbuily IP phone. All the communication with clients was done through computer ArboStar chrome extension. Incoming calls, outgoing calls, sms, followups, everything was Smooth and I could do the work from home or on mobile. Very convenient. Man hour return tracking function was great as I could easily see who's bringing there most money to the company. ArboStar was basically the only soft we used to manage multimillion business and it was very impressive.

Cons
Nothing really, If there were some bugs I could just call the support and they would be fixed ASAP. Never lost even one production day on ArboStar. Only thing I can think of for improvement is checks printing. Would be cool to be able to print checks for paying subcontractors invoices right from the system.

It has been overall a great experience, has really facilitated my job, not only it is easier now but I am been more effective and efficient since I can send my estimates faster than my competitors without sacrificing quality and details on my estimates, with a map and photos of the service explaining everything. I have noticed these details on my estimates set the correct expectations both for the client and the crew members having almost no complaints from customers and really complete instruction for the crew that will perform the service.

Pros
It is tough to say since there are many features I like about it. The scheme map would be on the top of the list, also the ability to choose to customize every single detail on my estimates while still on the property (Crew members, equipment, hours, expenses.. everything). the fact that I can send estimates with really detailed info, take photos and upload them into my estimate on site. I guess there are many features I like about it.

Cons
I would like to see in the future a voice recording so I can keep a record of all the details the client tells me on site. I guess that's coming in the future.

My personal review for Arbostar

I've been using Arbostar for a little over four months now and it's helped my business streamline some of the areas that used to be a hassle to deal with. I like to stick to my methods of doing things, but since I pulled the trigger and got the software, I can't see myself going back to my old way of doing things.

Pros
Arbostar has a ton of useful modules and features, and they seem to be constantly adding more. I love the real-time lead display that shows up instantly on my phone. The app connects to my phone's GPS, meaning if I'm in the area I can easily check out potential job sites the moment the customer needs something. The software also keeps track of basically every piece of information I could possibly need, so everything I need to know about my business operations is sitting right in my pocket at all times.

Cons
Everything is quite intuitively placed, but I would have liked some type of tutorial that walked me through every feature. There were some features, like the ability to listen to recorded phone conversations, that I didn't know existed until I stumbled upon them a month after getting the app. There's a lot of helpful features, and I want to make sure I'm aware of all of them and know how to use them.

The bottom line is that Arbostar has helped my business take on more clients. I have a small team and do a lot of the heavy lifting myself (in more ways than one!) but now that I have one app that can track jobs automatically, handle payroll, communicate with customers, etc. I can be much more efficient with every spare minute I have. I've toyed with the idea of using a CRM for my business before, but always thought we were too small for one. But when you're wrong, you're wrong!

Pros
I love how the app makes my team so much more effective. Just about every mundane task I do is made quicker in some way. It pins jobs to my map automatically, allowing me to quickly email or call customers based on their map location, making customer communication a breeze. This has made each day much more productive, as I can plan my jobs in the most efficient way possible by zipping between leads, jobs, and estimates in the most efficient way possible.

Cons
Really not much to complain about. There's been a couple of minor bugs here and there, but each one's been quickly fixed with an update. The support team is really responsive and helpful when anything does come up, so everythings been smooth sailing so far.
