Briostack overview

What is Briostack?

Briostack is a provider of pest control software that automates common business operations and the management of service provision with a view on greater efficiency. Offering centralized cloud-based deployment with multi-device compatibility, Briostack's features include the booking of service appointments via a color-coded scheduling calendar. Enabling back-office controllers or dispatchers to manage time slots, the system's dynamic approach to technician staff schedule management also allows different work units or branches to be created. Geo-based tracking monitors employees as they travel between appointments, InRoutes tools optimize service routes, while barcode scanning conveniently logs equipment, and task management underpins successful workflows. Aside from the provision of staff training content including video tutorials, Briostack also gives customers portal access for settling account billing with credit card payment processing, and its tech app similarly gives field workers remote accessibility to system features even when offline.

In addition, the Brio Sales app for iPad promises an all-in-one, native mobile companion that connects back to the main Briostack management system. Intended to support the duties of the door-to-door pest control salesman in the field, notable features include a geographic map view for marking the location of current customers and new leads along with the ability to submit electronic service agreements remotely. Pest Explorer offers reference guides on local pest threats with images and descriptions, while users can also view company sales or service statistics, along with accessing an About Us section with price sheets and sales / training videos.

Great Software

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Notification options are fantastic. Billing, appointment reminders, past due bills and card expiration are all things Brio does automatically once set up, it take a lot off accounting and customer service notification.

Cons
Brio is not difficult to use at all, I would like to see appointment blocks added but i know they are working on that.

Pros
The software is feature rich without making the software so complicated that you have to attend a multi-day seminar to understand it. Briostack assigns you an on-boarding team that walks you through the entire set up process, the help desk is available for troubleshooting, and your account representative is there for ideas, changes, and support. Their pricing is simple and easy to understand (no hidden vault fees, customer support fees, etc.) I love the automatic notification process that can occur by phone (robo- or personal recorded message) by text or by email. If you are a company that offers many different services, then your notifications can be personalized to each service type! The automatic payment features, payment plan features, and ease of billing are fantastic. Did I mention, how simple and streamlined the technician app is??? It is so simple to use, that even the technicians that are "not so tech-savvy" will love it! The star rating communication that has poured in from our customers after the appointments are completed have really motivated the team to stay on their "A" game. Our customers and team members have given us a thumbs up on this software change!!

Cons
1. Monochromatic screen coloration (would love to see color coded tabs/ sections.) 2. Would love to see a "find customer" box on the web page no matter which tab you are in. Please note that my account rep. asked me for my "cons" and is submitting them. The 2 items listed above may be used in the software update. (That's the kind of company they are.... they want your feedback)

We tried to cancel this company but month after month they continue to bill our credit card. We went with a different company BTW the new company who we LOVE is more expensive. All I can say is these folks do not know pest control they do not understand functionality they do not understand customer service.

Pros
We decided to use this company based on their sales presentation. The functions looked great and they were very friendly. They indicated to us that a pest control technician had designed it which made sense to us. Bad Choice

Cons
Horribly heavy and difficult to use! Nothing is intuitive! Worse program we have ever used quite frankly. My office manager was literally crying one day because she thought she was too dumb to operate this program. The help desk is always friendly but they are too techy they speak a completely different language.

Response from Briostack


We are sorry to hear about your experience, Allen. We are constantly making our program better based on requests from our customers like you and appreciate your feedback. We are sorry to hear about your office manager and wanted to let you know that our support team is always available for assistance, & assure you she isn't "too dumb" to operate our program. There's no one that understands pest control more than our CEO and owner who has been in pest control for the past 23 years. If you have questions about your contract, or ways to get out of your contract please contact our support line at 801-623-5200

Review Source: Capterra

The reason that we started looking for a new software provider was specifically to find a better solution for our food handling facility reporting. We are happy that Brio worked with us to provide exactly what we were looking for in station scanning and reporting.

Pros
What I like most about this software are the awesome people that back up the software. Customer service is friendly, thoughtful, responsive, and helpful. Also, there are so many reports at my fingertips. I feel like I have a much better grasp of how our company is doing at any given point in the year and in the month. Both our clients and service technicians like it, too.

Cons
It was very different than we were used to using, so for us, the learning curve was a little steep, but we all seem to have it mastered at this point. Briostack was super-helpful to us in getting everything set up properly and they worked hard to provide us with a solution to our every request.

Overall we are happy, we switched from PestPac and haven’t looked back since.

Pros
I enjoy being able to access the leads platform. I really enjoy the forums and online newsletter we get informing us of any new changes and giving us an opportunity to ask questions.

Cons
You have to clear the online cache or the app starts acting funny.

Benefits

Briostack's web-based pest control software utilizes process automation to streamline business operations and manage more effectively back-office, doorstep sales and field technicians while also supporting self service customer account access via online portal.

Automation includes options for sending out marketing campaigns, general communications, plus billing / renewal reminders via SMS text, email, pre-recorded phone calls and even hard copy letters or postcards with click to mail capabilities.

A tech app allows field technicians to work paperlessly, viewing appointment schedules, receiving turn-by-turn travel directions for optimized driving routes, managing tasks, scanning equipment via bar code and even accessing training materials.

A public-facing online portal encourages customers to view and update their service accounts, with the ability to view billing and service histories, settle account balances with credit cards and also configure notification preferences etc.

Brio Sales for iOS remotely supports the work of pest control sales staff with a map-based view for tagging the location of current and potential customer leads, localized pest reference guides and more.
