BlueFolder overview

What is BlueFolder?

BlueFolder's service management solution offers a unique blend of ease-of-use and functionality. Think of BlueFolder as CRM + Work Orders + Scheduling + Billing.

BlueFolder's CRM functionality allows users to track all service-related information for their customers – contacts, locations, service history, contracts, and equipment/assets that are serviced at their site.

Work Orders are where the work gets done, and we give you the ability to customize the fields that you use and add attachments as needed for your business. The work orders track all of the labor, materials, and expenses and you can easily push these details to your accounting system for accurate and timely billing. We support integration with QuickBooks, QuickBooks Online and Xero.

Customer interaction is a critical part of effective service. Customers can request service not just by calling, but by sending an email to the system or using the customer portal. With BlueFolder, customers can log-in to their accounts, open new work orders, see the status of existing ones, or provide additional information. They can also be notified automatically via an email of updates or changes, if this option is selected.

BlueFolder has been reliably providing a service management solution to businesses for over 10 years, and have customers who have used the system to run their service business from the beginning.

Additionally, BlueFolder's customer service was top-notch. Anytime we had a question, they had an immediate answer.

Pros
We were burdened with heavy software that required a million clicks to get the simplest things done. Then, we found BlueFolder. It gave us everything we needed to store customer information, schedule service tickets for our employees and most importantly, close tickets and get paid quickly. The software's simplicity allowed us to put our focus on growing the company.

Cons
We found no cons with the BlueFolder software.

This program keeps my operations organized in an easy way. I am sure I don't even use half the features in which I would like to be able to learn more about the options to see if it will help my operation even more.

Pros
The flow of a work order, from quote, to executed work order an scheduling, to completion of work order with a signature feature, to batching work orders to Quickbooks

Cons
Lacking a Drag and Drop feature and project management

I am very pleased with the overall experience with Bluefolder.

Pros
Bluefolder has been an essential tool to my service business. We use it to dispatch service techs, collect time, add material, generate work description, communicate drawings, track job progress and more.

Cons
We would like to customize the ticket number feature. We also would like to be able to create a private comment where the lead tech can not see it. Only the service manager.

Review Source: Capterra

We have been using BlueFolder for five years to schedule and manage a very, busy elevator service department. Without BlueFolder we would not have been able to grow our company by 50%, It allows us to provide the type of information that the technicians need in the field to do their job and the home office to manage all of the customers and equipment. The System has a lot of ways to customize the information specific to your company's needs. Their customer support is extremely helpful and always accessible when needed. This was the single most effective decision we have every made and I highly recommend this system.

Pros
The ease of data entry. The ability to manage technician's in the field and provide them with the information to do their job. The ability to integrate with QuickBooks for billing. This system has enabled our company's department to grow by 50%...

Cons
Would love to be able to link multiple data sets for custom reports.
