Wintac Features In Depth

Access to Customer Information

Field service technicians have 24/7 access to vital customer information with Wintac. This includes job histories and installed equipment. With customer and lead management tools, Wintac users may enter unlimited amounts of searchable notes for each customer, job site, and job.

Take better care of your current customers and prospects by adopting Wintac’s tools. You can instantly view complete job and billing histories for any customer, and attach things like photos, documents, and spreadsheets to any record. Automatic pop-up notices can be setup to remind you of critical information, as well.

Update Schedules From the Field

Service contractors who work offsite can view their daily schedules and update those schedules remotely while working in the field. Wintac’s scheduling, dispatching, and work order management tools feature daily, weekly, and monthly dispatch views, along with drag-and-drop, color-coded dispatching.

Get your schedule in order by adding the details of each day’s assignments to Wintac. Through the Job Control Center, you can schedule, dispatch, route, search, and sort jobs. Re-assign field technicians by dragging-and-dropping various jobs into place on the virtual schedule. Wintac’s boards come with modifiable layouts and color-coded statuses.

Complete Jobs Remotely

Using Wintac’s mobile tools, field technicians are able to select items from price lists, capture signatures, and attach photos and documents to customer histories while they work in the field.

Once you arrive on a jobsite, you can use a tablet computer to electronically capture the signatures you need on work orders, proposals, and invoices. Using a tablet, you also have the ability to generate job schedules, site directions, and routing sheets at any time.

Email Invoices & Apply Payments

Using Wintac, field technicians are able to create invoices for clients, email those invoices, and even apply payments all while working outside the office. Wintac’s software includes credit card processing integration.

Create professional proposals, quotes, and estimates using Wintac’s tools, and then convert those accepted documents into invoices with just one click. You also have the option to use task lists to generate invoices, work orders, and proposals.

Online/Offline Functionality

Offline capabilities allow technicians to work in areas with no or limited service, without needing to call their offices for information or updates. With the Wintac Web Portal and app, service techs have the information they need to enter and complete emergency jobs after hours, including viewing the customer history including any installed equipment with warranty information.

In the event that your service network becomes unavailable during the workday, you can continue using the Wintac app without an Internet connection. When your service network is re-connected, the data you entered offline will update and sync back to the office to eliminate double entries.

Long time Wintac users

Program integrates several modules inlcuding customers, jobs, employees, A/P and a contact manager.

Pros

Wintac's design has developed over the years to serve the needs of our plumbing and air conditioning business.

Cons

Program could benefit by improving its import/export capabilities and integration with external data.

Not able to meet the needs

2016-12-20

They are very responsive to our issues, however, the team is unable to fix the issues, sitting the next version addresses them. Inventory was the selling feature for our small company, and we are still not able to figure out why when posting purchases, they mysteriously remove inventory, change pricing (revert to previous costs).

Pros

Ability to manage work orders, dispatch board, and customer job manager.

Cons

., employee payroll has limited ability to provide what is required to report to state and federal, inventory management is a complete nightmare, with changes that cannot be explained, but some are a result of system design with many areas for error.

Wintac Delivers on Promises - Excellent Customer Service!

2016-11-14

As a previous Sage 50 user, we were growing extremely frustrated with lack of inventory management and mobile field service options.

Pros

Functionality is clean and simple. Much easier than Sage.

No hyperlinks within the report function to open related data.

Good program, but could use some work.

2011-08-17

I would hope to see improvements on the inventory section of the program and make it harder to accidently add a new item to the inventory and harder to duplicate an item.

Pros

- Easy scheduling

Cons

- Poor design on inventory management (2007 version) - Bad design on installation, having to install the program on every desktop rather than having it being accessed via the server.

Wintac Green - Great for the small landscape companies

2012-01-04

Wintac has been great!

2017-04-24

We have been using Wintac since 2012 and highly recommend it. It works very similar to Microsoft Office and my team caught on really quick. It has been a great change from previous software packages that we had prior to Wintac that required tons of training.

Pros

The Web Portal is also a favorite feature.

Cons

Easier way to work with Inventory Items when updating warehouses after a physical inventory count.

Helpful tech support.

2017-11-20

I would like to see all report in Wintac available in excel format or at least be able to easily convert with Adobe converter.

Pros

Company information is on your server and not on a third party held by a monthly fee.

Cons

With every update there seems to be an issue with an existing feature of Wintac.

Not a fan of Wintac

2020-01-07

I can pay bills and keeps track of accounts payable but sometimes it pulls up ancient data and includes it in the accounts which is just weird.

Pros

You can put in individual information and also add tags and alerts to pop up when you pull up an individual account.

Cons

I wonder how accurate the reports are that are generated because it includes things that shouldn't be included and doesn't allow you to categorize things in specific ways.

Great Software

2012-01-18

being in the HVAC industry for over 11+ years, I have used many software programs to dispatch, track equipment, cost jobs, etc...Wintac has, by far, been the most user friendly.

Pros

Easy customer search, reports are comprehensive, costing at-a-glance, dispatch board easy to view.

Cons

Needs better maintenance module and a better billing system for "one-time billing"

Wintac - not for large companies or companies with maintenance contracts

2018-05-18

Wintac may work well for a small company with little or no maintenance contacts to manage, otherwise I don't recommend it.

There are no good reports for tracking technician performance.

Great inventory record keeping

2012-04-13

Wintac has come a long way since first introduced into the market. We at Able Air Inc have been a loyal customer since about 1995. Since Rev 14.x the speed of program has increased dramatically and having 25 users simultaneously using the wintac database is no longer a problem. It is the only program out there that fits all of our needs.

Pros

Great inventory record keeping.

Cons

The database needs to have house keeping ran on it about every 2 weeks during medium use, and once a week with high use. Access database makes for slower transaction than SQL would.

Wintac let me down

2021-01-23

wintac was good until the competition went web based and wintac stayed behind. if wintac could be web based and have everything it already had and be a decent price i would probably go back to wintac.

Pros

Great desktop software it literally had everything you needed to run a business without the new fancy stuff. reporting was great, equipment tracking, dispatching, work orders, customer database, pop up windows

Cons

Did not keep up with the competition. mobile software is junk, cannot run a business via mobile with wintac.

Fear of Updates

2018-10-31

A much better program then our last, but when an update is made we generally have to change the way we do things on our end. The updates do not fix an issue we have had and brought to supports attention, but generally end up causing more reason for us to need support. Fear of updates! We want CHAT support to make a comeback. We are a busy office and can't be on the phone with support when the phones are ringing.

Pros

Dispatch board is very helpful. Reporting features are good, but not great.

Cons

A few times my inventory asset number ended up changing and engineering was unable to find the cause, if they even looked at my data.
