About BlueFolder

Flexible. Customizable. Easy. BlueFolder checks all the boxes. BlueFolder was built for field maintenance teams, by real field service professionals.

Customized (and automated) to fit your business processes. Every business is different, and many out-of-the box solutions just don’t cut it (ditch the square peg with round holes). With BlueFolder, you can customize your work orders to function exactly as you expect them to (saving you a ton of time). You will be in control: change work order status colors, generate automated status changes, use defaults when completing assignments and specify how work orders behave based on technician permissions. Speed up how work is managed and completed.

Work Order Management - track job details, status, assignments, billable items, notes, comments, change history, equipment installed/serviced, files/photos, and more. BlueFolder’s unique assignment capabilities can easily handle complex jobs that require multiple tasks and multiple assignees. You can even enable assignment completion tracking so you’ll know when each job sub-task has been completed by your team. Custom fields allow you to track the critical data that is unique to your business, and you can subsequently search and report on that data. Customizable default settings save time and reduce human error when creating work orders. Track all billable job activities like labor hours worked, materials used, and expenses incurred, and export to your accounting system for accurate invoicing. A full log of every work order action ensures that your team is fully informed and accountable. Robust notification capabilities keep your teams in sync with job status and with each other, while customer notifications with full back-and-forth email capabilities helps your team and your customers easily communicate right from within the system.

Field Service CRM – imagine all your critical customer information in one secure place, enabling fast retrieval and accurate reporting. Quick access to a customer’s full job service history makes it easier to deliver a great customer experience and saves time when booking new jobs or answering customer questions. Easily track complex commercial customers who have multiple contacts and locations, and even assign team members to act as the default tech, service manager, or account manager for specific customers. Flexible settings and custom fields enable highly customized tracking of the information you need for each customer. You can also attach files, photos, and even links to external websites to a customer record.

Equipment/Asset Tracking - keep track of the equipment/assets you install/service for your customers. Accurate service history records and tracking of maintenance schedules helps your team maintain and increase equipment uptime and customer satisfaction. Track serial numbers, warranties, custom fields, and attached files/photos or external links per equipment item. Stay on top of equipment/asset maintenance with recurring jobs that automatically generate work orders at scheduled intervals.

Billing – accurate invoices get paid faster and with less friction. BlueFolder helps your team log every billable job activity which prevents billable work from being lost and increases your revenue. Billable job activities like labor hours worked, materials used, expenses incurred are tracked in detail and include the ability to add public or private comments to each activity. Customizable permissions allow you to keep your profit margins private from your techs while enabling more visibility for your more senior staff. Billable work can also be billed to a service contract and non-billable activities are also supported. Each work order can be exported to your accounting system for invoicing and payment. BlueFolder integrates with QuickBooks, QuickBooks Online, Xero, and others (via our API). The ability to invoice and collect payment right from within BlueFolder is planned for release in Q1 2022.

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.

Overall, we are very happy with the program. We are hoping for some future integration with our documentation.

Pros

I really like the ease of use and the implementation of the system was virtually seamless with the tech team from BlueFolder. The reports are very good for our needs. The technicians really like to use the desktop program and that what's most important.

Cons

The mobile app needs a lot of work. There is limited ability to print out equipment reports for single units.

Good tool but expensive

Reviewed on 2022-08-31

Overall it serves us well, but the increasing costs might drive us to look at other options.

Overall it serves us well, but the increasing costs might drive us to look at other options.

Pros

Work order management works well both in the office and in the field. Automated recurring work orders help keep preventative maintenance organized. Work history is easily located, it's easy to add attachements etc.

Customer support is excellent, always a quick response, always quick to address any issues we have.

Cons

Sold in US dollars only makes it quite expensive for Canadian companies. Overall cost has become quite high.

For our setup we have to do a lot of manual setup for preventative maintenance. Easier than on paper and automatically triggers work orders in the months we need though.

EXCEPTIONAL!
service and support have always been spot on, helped when i had issues, helped on the new update. Responsive in a quick time period.
Sale team has been helpful when I have had cusotmers that could benifit they helped me to setup a demo system.
There are very few companies (especially software) that i like as much as this system.

Pros

We have been with BlueFolder for many many years, and have watched it improve. We use it to run nearly every aspect of our business. Before I started this company, I ran a software development company in LA, this software is simple to use, powerful and would be the highest rated software systems that I use for my company.
Without this system I would have to link together several solutions and doubt they would give me the tools and ease of use that this one system has.
Steve Drake

Cons

The calendar has issues with time zones. But this is common in most calendar systems. I live in Arizona and during half the year my appointments are set to the wrong time, even though my sales team puts them in correctly for the class. It adjusts to what it thinks is my local time, but the class is scheduled for a time in spite of the zone. This is an issue because I travel to those times, and it does not update when i am there.
