Review of Flowfinity Products

2019-07-31

Data collection from the field is easy and it is able to be audited to suit our clients' needs.

Pros

The apps are very easy to design and provide our customer with the data that is needed through importing

Cons

The ability to be able to designate view/actions are only allowed to be assigned to Admin/Power user/regular user etc. If you could assign each user with permissions per app or tab, it would provide a great benefit

Pros

The solution is highly intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

What we really like about Flowfinity is that their Team takes on board our inputs, requests, and gives us honest management of our expectations around feasibility, timeframes, costs, etc.

Hello Brett,

Thank you for your honest and enthusiastic review of Flowfinity. Thank you for highlighting our commitment to customer service, and the fact that you went from concept to deployment of your app within 5 weeks, congratulations on your success with the platform!

We acknowledge that software cannot always meet all "nice to have" requirements, and we try to manage expectations accordingly.

It's great to hear that you are reaping benefits from your custom solution over your previous off the shelf system.

We look forward to working with you going forward to help drive your success.

Best Regards,

-Team Flowfinity

Flexible reliable system, easy to adapt and very good value for money.

2018-04-18

Flowfinity has drastically reduced our paperwork and allowed us to have a live view of activities across several sites showing the status of jobs and issues found.

Pros

The offline storage of data sets Flowfinity apart from its competitors and permits usage in low signal areas.

Cons

But anybody can design and publish a basic application to users in less than a hour.

Sarah Ro

Built a custom solution for managing a SMB - staff time tracking, client database, invoicing

2018-01-31

-Reduced administrative overhead by about 80%

Pros

-Completely flexible to use, lets you build truly customized solution completely tailored to your business processes -Great value, because you get offline mobile forms and apps, a built-in database, cloud hosting, unlimited forms, dashboards and workflows all included -Easy to use and super fast to make changes, so you can always improve your solution and keep updating it based on user feedback -Can build all the BPM apps you need without any coding -After you build an application, you can use it on the web or on your mobile device right away as soon as you publish it -It's easy to set up data lookups from other apps, so you can manage your customers in one app and pull the information into other apps for example -It has nested data which lets you create lists with different levels, which we use for creating items in invoices -You can set up custom searches so it's easy to find whatever data you're looking for -I was able to easily set up automatic emails that alert me based on my own business rules, for example if a client doesn't come to their appointment, or is missing contact information, or if a payout rate is outside a certain threshold -They recently added dashboards, so I can see all of my invoicing and staffing information in charts and I don't have to export any data to Excel or another system to work with it, it's all in Flowfinity

Cons

-Looking forward to new product features that will be coming out, for example being able to launch into apps and activities directly from dashboards

This is the best field technician data collection and management system available!

2018-04-07

Complete field technician management and measurement of KPIs.

Pros

The fact that it is completely customizable. Any time we come up with a new idea, we can have it implemented within hours.

Cons

That we didn't start using it sooner! We tried other competitors and failed, but this deployment hit the mark.

Excellent customer service and enterprise-quality product.

2018-05-20

Pros

Data is stored in MSSQL and is easy to push/pull for 3rd party integrations with legacy, reporting, or custom apps.

Cons

No cons really, maybe a few wishlist items like support for Azure websites and Azure SQL instead requiring a vm.

Flowfinity Overview

2019-07-31

Crews use the app daily on their phones and IPADs to input real time records, checklists, signatures, safety toolbox talks and important safety initiatives.

Pros

Flowfinity brings our group together and creates TRANSPARENCY across the board. We need this since our team is all over the US and head office is in Canada.

Cons

Reporting is also limited as Flowfinity captures information, and can provide the data for use, but it does not provide or currently have the ability to create customized, easy to view reporting.

Steep learning curve, but unparalleled flexibility

2019-09-25

Although designing apps can at times be a little complicated, our users have reported zero issues picking up a corporate device and going straight into the field.

Pros

As such, we frequently need to hit the ground running with a rough first draft of our data gathering plan and then refine it over time.

Cons

No individual component is particularly confusing, but there are many different workflows and processes involved if you want to be able to get the most out of the platform.

A great experience

2019-07-18

It is our main data capture tool.

Pros

The user interface on the mobile device and the website are great and easy to use and learn.

Cons

If I had to define a least favourite item it would be the reports. I wish we could add more branding to them but that is minor to the rest of the system.

Great product with even better customer service

2019-08-05

We are using it to eliminate paper being used in our plants, so data is more easily accessible and the lag time of paper getting from the field to the office is eliminated as well.

Pros

It is very customizable for our individual business needs, straightforward to learn how to build new forms, and well-organized to separate different plants/areas.

Cons

The language/syntax used in formulas for conditional questions isn't the most intuitive, but that con is totally offset by the awesome customer service they provide to help you achieve what you're trying to do.

Hello Megan,

Thank you for taking the time to review your experiences with Flowfinity. We appreciate your feedback and we're pleased to hear you are having success with the system.

Formulas are one of the more complex aspects of the platform, however they are such a powerful tool when used effectively. Our formula syntax is based on SQL syntax which we hoped would be a better known standard for most users. That said familiar with database structures is not a requirement to use and benefit from Flowfinity.

We're happy to hear you received the help you needed from our customer success team, here are some resources on formula calculations and text manipulation from our knowledge base:

Hello Dev,

Thanks for your review of Flowfinity, many of our clients appreciate that mobile field data can still be collected while in out of coverage areas and then transmitted and processed once a connection is reestablished.

We do also offer shared and private cloud hosting options if your are interested in moving away from an on-premises installation.

Here is some more info on deployment options:

Go paperless!

2019-07-31

We will soon be able to get rid of all our paper forms in our facility. We’re so glad we found flowfinity and it really pales in comparison to similar products.

Pros

Flowfinity is easy to use and is very customizable. Our goal was to eliminate paper forms in our manufacturing plant and we’re well on our way to doing just that!

Cons

There’s really nothing we don’t like about flowfinity yet. So far it has perfectly met all of our needs.
