    Pros
    The customer service is absolutely superb. Quick response; helpful, clear answers to questions; quick turnaround for customization.
    We enter all our AR and AP transactions into Knowify and it syncs beautifully with QB. Absolutely love the built in AIA billing format and the ability to email out of the application.
    I LOVE the invoicing system and contracts and having it sync with emails its great. Also the employees ability to check into a specific job.
    Cons
    Searches can be difficult to return to. They lack pagination customization.
    The guys have problems all the time with the clocking in.
    Customer service doesn't take the time to determine what is wrong.

    Absolutely the best job costing app for subcontractors and trades that integrates with QuickBooks.

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    We love sharing this software and its great features with our construction clients. To my mind there is no better job costing app on the market today for subcontractors and tradesmen in commercial construction.

    Pros

    The 2-way sync with QuickBooks; the ability to create AIA style billings directly out of the program (no duplicate entering); the integrations with great apps like ClockShark and Tsheets; the great dashboard on which you can monitor the profitability of each current job; the ease with which you can budget and bid from within the software; the wealth of available reports; and so much more.

    Cons

    Some improvements could be made to the service ticket side of the program to make it more comprehensive; if a PO is fulfilled in QuickBooks there is no way to match it in Knowify, so it has to be closed out manually on the Knowify side.

    Concerns with Knowify

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Knowify allows me to better track materials and labor. Overall, it's alright as a support tool but I feel it still has a long way to go. Knowify Support basically refers to the user manual for any questions - may as well start there before contacting them.

    Pros

    Allows me to have a front-end to Quickbooks and provides for a little better job tracking. We previously tracked jobs manually. Knowify also has some helpful reports.

    Cons

    When you first start using Knowify, it is not user friendly. There are many "quirks" in the system. We have submitted requested all through 2018 for some of these to be addressed. Our company cannot be the only user experiencing some of these issues. Using Knowify has helped but is still lacking for my purposes. Examples: adding another default phase for Subcontractors - the entry of this data now is awful. Support has not be terrific. Job numbering - if jobs are initiated in Knowify or Quickbookos, if the are communicating properly, the LAST number issued should automatically populate. This does not happen, even though Support says to mark it in preferences - it is flagged.

    As a Quickbooks desktop Beta customer, we are still ironing out some sync troubles.

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    The online-ability is great for the boss in the field, but with QBD we have had to establish work arounds.

    Pros

    Knowify has many modules that are useful, however they do not all work with QBD quite yet. Once they can get the sync figured out it will be a one-stop-shop for estimating, time-tracking, invoicing, scheduling. We do not use the Plan and Track feature, but I can see how that could be VERY helpful. Emailing customers is very easy. Purchase orders are EASY to send. Getting customer signatures is EASY.

    Cons

    1) The billing module is very detailed, so it takes a long time to enter bills. There should be a shortcut around entering an "Item" that allows choosing an expense account. And maybe allocate to the job not based on an item in contract. Also Autofill feature? Or a Copy previous bill? 2) Default accounts are confusing. For a long time they did not save after I entered them. And many of them do not...

    Run your business efficiently

    Reviewed a year ago

    I have used the demo version of the software and I can say it is great software with many features that can allow users to grow their businesses and make profits.

    Pros

    It has an organized dashboard and many features. Users can easily start a new project, add a description, divided the job into phases, and set the budget for each phase. The budget is detailed into materials, labor, and subcontractor costs. This can help users estimate the cost Vs profits for each phase. The program makes it easy to calculate materials and labor costs, just add the price per unit and...

    Cons

    Knowify is great, but it requires a high level of experience with similar apps. On the other hand, it is appreciated that newcomers can download a demo version to practice, also the software has built-in user service templates.
