Reviews of PENTA

An PENTA user says…

PENTA is a good fit for mid-sized to large commercial and industrial contractors, including Electrical Contractors, Mechanical / HVAC Contractors, Fire Protection Contractors, Heavy Civil Contractors and EPCs– particularly those who manage a lot of labor – but not typically for those who are focused on residential construction.

The good: PENTA was built to meet the demands of commercial and industrial field service organizations that manage equipment, maintenance agreements, inspections and more.

PENTA makes field techs, crew foremen, service managers and support staff more efficient with a complete system designed to manage: • dispatching, work orders, customer service history, maintenance contracts and more • mobile field service using an iPad app • recording and transmitting of job labor, equipment, and production data from the field • inspections • info flows into core financials.

With PENTA, you can even give your customers self-service access to service history via a Customer Portal, reducing your support costs, building stronger customer relationships, and enhancing revenue.

The bad: PENTA isn’t an estimating package, but it does allow you to use an estimating tool you prefer.
