Pros

What is also super awesome is I can share these timelines on an individual client level so they can see their project and what is scheduled as well as the project progress.
What I really appreciate with using Toggl Plan is that I can have a great overview of all the things I've done along the timeline - which is pretty motivating.
The tool shows a clear timeline with all my projects. It's a super nice interface with all projects visualized on the calendar.

Pros

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

I had trouble finding all functionalities on app that are on the web. Gganted I was using it before their newest app version.
It can be a pain to create several of the same task. The big issue for me, however, is the lack of synergy between Toggl Plan and Toggl Track.
When I first started in my current position I was a bit lost on how to organize everything and keep my team on track.

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

Trade software

Reviewed 4 years ago

Awesome on the go software for keeping track of materials and expenses on multiple jobs. Being able to invoice quickly and change any margins in the field. This increases cash flow and reduces time waiting for invoices to be paid!

Pros

Easy of use. Multi platform. Invoicing in the field!

Cons

Reconciling paid invoices manually. Add on costs on top of the professional plan

Pros

A great tool for mid-size startups as it makes working in a team an easy task. Also, it helps you to coordinate and plan.

Cons

Getting everybody onboard is a hectic task. Also, making everyone familiar on ground level is difficult.

Comprehensive, easy to use, great Support

Reviewed 4 years ago

Fantastic Fergus team and support, especially for someone who thought he was not savvy when it came to accounting and planning. This has made my life so easy which in turn has helped my business succeed, in my 'perceived' areas of weakness as well as helping me grow in those areas. Thank you Fergus

Pros

I use this on every aspect of my day to day month to month job plan. It syncs with my accounting package and I never have to go to any other software package.

Cons

To be honest I have yet to find anything I would call cons. You dream of great software to help you, well here it is. people who understand and have created exactly what we need

Scheduling of jobs Helps determine work flow

Pros

The customer support The scheduling The look of the quote/invoicing Credit card payment option Automatic reminders

Cons

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. For example a subdivision site plan for multisite developers.
