Pros

Very practical and comfortable interface and great connection with other applications and websites.
Good support, and the system is stable and dependable. We use it 24/7 from both the studio and for streaming from the field.
The analytics are nice, although not as comprehensive as I'd like, the info is fairly limited.

Pros

The software has been great and had performed as described. The integration team has been awesome as well.
The workflow in simPRO is quite comprehensive and yet logical. We love the ability to turn a lead into a quote... then track it into a job, and to an invoice and payment.
It is user friendly from both the administration and technician standpoint. My technicians are actually excited about using simPRO because it is straightforward and efficient.

Cons

The higher rate you tried to stream at the more cpu it has to use and would often crash. Uploading videos after for people to watch proved very difficult and you are limited to 3GB.
The one thing I hate about LiveStream is that you can get addicted and when that happens you find yourself watching church instead of going to church.
Menu/Dashboard jumbled up making it a little difficult to make selections.

Cons

Nothing we were sold or told would work ended up working. This has been an extremely disappointing, costly and frustrating experience with SimPro.
Everything works 60% of what you need, Eforms is constantly broken, Simpro connect crashes and looses jobs.
Sometimes can be a little sluggish. We have been kicked offline a couple of times.
