Pros

A price book has now been loaded to allow for ease of quotations and invoicing, great that it links into MYOB.

MB

Mark B.

From when we first started using the product, excellent training, great customer service throughout, does exactly what we need in this product.

DC

Debbie C.

Tracking the progress of a job is made easy through the creation of custom categories that suit our business and the ease with which our tradesmen can access and add to Notes for each job.

MC

Pros

The support staff have been great, love the calendar that enables us to allocate work. What I would like to see improved.

BH

Brett H.

We have tried 3 other management tool's and by far Fergus stands out as the winner. If you want something quick and easy to use on a phone it works great.

AG

Amelia G.

Operational efficiency and purchase accuracy has increased exponentially. We purchased the product at the perfect time as we have been growing and evolving with Fergus.

Cons

The only thing that I would change if you are midway through a quote and you have to restart it and loose photos due to a mobile device updating etc.

I've looked at so many similar kinds of apps it's ridiculous. I've passed on so many for so many different reasons.

AT

Adam T.

I can't think of any features that are really missing. Personally I don't make much use of the scheduling system.

RT

Ryan T.

Cons

Email platform being used ends up in spam too much by clients, told by Fergus that this is because the platform used by Fergus is the same as many spammer's.

BH

Brett H.

The inability to customise a health and safety form for staff to access on site and link to the client file. The inability to attach any general files/photos to the client rather than a specific job.

DG

Debbie G.

I sorry, but I am really struggling to find one.

Fergus logo

Fergus

Fergus just works incredibly well. Reliable floorless syncing with Xero, Best I have seen.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Time sheet Tracking for me and staff, organised and nice looking quotes, quote acceptance via email, Mobile invoicing if needed, a way of back costing jobs fast and easily.

Pros

Upto a few years ago a big part of my business was running blind so I went hunting for a software management program to get us sorted. I tried nearly every program on the market from Tradify, Workflo Max, Service m8, GeOp and many more, I even doubled back and trialed some of them again. I ran through several jobs in each software program but just couldn't find a program that would do what I needed. They all had helpful features but none of them were as fitting as Fergus. Fergus just works well, and is getting better all the time. Quotes are a breeze and invoicing takes me about 30 mins a day. I love using fergus and recommend to any business as a must have.

Cons

The software does everything I need to run my business so cant see any cons. Would be nice if the software had a faster GPS tracking system but I am sure this will come in time.
