The key for me is the partnering element between JobAdder Support and their clients; they are always there to solve a problem or listen to improvement suggestions. You would definitely not get this reactive response from the other providers.

If it’s not working for you then you’re able to get out of it, but I’m really confident that once people see it and start using it, they will never want to leave. JobAdder is our single source of truth.

I think that the reason that we were really impressed was that it was just a very simple look and feel and was aesthetically pleasing. We could tell right away that it was powerful, but just the aesthetic was clean and again simple. You guys weren’t overthinking everything. We’ve really been pleased. It’s been, overall, just a really great product for us, a great system and we are glad that’s the way we went many moons ago.

I get rave reviews about the product from the team and when they’re going out of their way to say ‘hey we finally found it’… It says everything. They’re happier and producing more and it just creates a win-win culture and a fabulous team. It’s easy to navigate your way through the JobAdder system… there is an intuitiveness to it that would lead you along the way even if you didn’t know what you were doing. There’s also a constant desire to improve the system… to create more features and benefits for those that want to participate in it.

Of all the companies we deal with we find your support team to be by far the best. Not only do they resolve every issue quickly and efficiently but they are knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with all at the same time.
