Intellievent Lightning review

2020-03-24

Pros

They do a lot of customizing for my particular business and layouts for reports/statements.

Cons

There are a few things that it can not do that I was hoping for (mainly it can not print statement for open invoices, you must go to each individual account to print a statement).

Intellievent- Gets the job done

2020-03-31

We like using intellevent because it give us the availability to work from home during hard times.

Pros

I like the easy design of the software and that we can access it from any computer rather than a downloaded system that takes up storage space.

Cons

Just to clean up the entire look of the document.

A good option for inventory control

2020-04-07

It took us a while to get it implemented, up and running, but we’ve been happy with how it has helped move our company forward and assisted us with inventory control and logistics.

Pros

The new UI in v4.0 is great!

Cons

Lack of comprehensive user manual/ documentation is frustrating. Customer support is good depending on who you get and how quickly they respond.

Highly recommend this software for rental and inventory management

2020-04-06

For me one of the big items when looking at software was support and customer service.

Pros

Being able to write these orders and have a logistics back end that follows and helps schedule equipment between facilities has improved our efficient transfer of equipment at the order level.

Cons

The availability calendar was something to get used to, but once we wrapped our heads around it, the ability to schedule based on resource management has overall benefited our company.

intellievent

2018-10-16

I am using Intellievent express at the moment but after working with their trial program and going through an on line demo I would certainly like to upgrade to lightning

Pros

I liked it best for the rental side of the business

Cons

It did not work as well for sales and rentals to be processed on the same invoice

IntelliEvent Lightning, "it'll work" but could use fine tuning and better support.

2019-02-13

While this software will work to track your rental inventory, in my opinion there are more competitively priced options with better functions, support, and features.

Pros

-Cloud based -Numerous data fields -Quick learning curve

Cons

-"Clunky" usage all-around -No auto populate of added new inventory, all hand entered -Seems like a beta version even after a few years -Excessive need to contact support, especially to delete unused items or mistakes in entry -No ability to scan an item from one order to next without returning then re-scanning, tedious -Support could be better listeners of end product user's needs

Frustrated User,

I know this review was from a while ago but I would love to talk with you directly about how the software has transformed for you over the last year. With the 4.0 release, I feel like a lot of the items you had mentioned were addressed. Niche market specialized software can be challenging at times but we are very much devoted to making your daily life easier.

I would love to catch up with you at any time. Feel free to email me at: aehler@extreme-impact.com or 480-290-4007

Sincerely,
Andrew Ehler

Great Value, and the whole company cares

2020-09-16

Pros

Customer support is always ready to help with the answer with the current work flow, or development of it as a new feature. They have also dedicated time for weekly training as well as Customer calls to help with deployment , training, and feature enhancements

Cons

Lightning does as well, but those are overshadowed with the Customer service and willingness from the team to help resolve the issue.

Valuable features, Easy to Use and Excellent Customer Service

2020-04-06

Lighting has all the features my business needs and more. It is easy to use.

Pros

I did a market research of what type of affordable software was available to track equipment, accounts as well as sales and came across with Intellievent.

Cons

As a small business owner, I did everything and, being based on an island, it was hard to call customer service to transfer my files to my laptop every time I would spend more than a day out of the office.

IntelliEvent Lighting is the Glue that holds us together

2020-03-24

IntelliEvent's customer service is top notch!

Pros

IntelliEvent Lightning is a convenient, one stop tool that allows us to track client's contact information, orders and revenue in real time.

Cons

There are few if any Cons to IntelliEvent. The transition from previous version to the current version caused me to review and learn some new best practices for using the software. Now that I have been using the new version for a while, it has become second nature.

Meh.

2021-03-09

Pros

Customer support is great, which is important since you'll be talking to them all the time.

Cons

Consistently slow. Fixes take forever. Roll-outs are done without regard for what the end user's needs are. Cumbersome to use. There is no beta testing . . . the end users do the testing.
