Why Contractors Can’t Stop Talking About CompanyCam
The secret is out and people can’t stop buzzing about how easy and reliable photo documentation is on CompanyCam. From GAF to Roofer’s Coffee Shop to your buddy that does roofing and restoration, these folks have seen the light — and the value of organizing photos in a quality app for contractors.
What the Blogs and Magazines are Buzzing About
Capterra.com said CompanyCam “encourages communication without phone calls and facilitates context without driving to the job sites. CompanyCam was built to save your entire team time and money.” Customers who left reviews said the best part of the software is “The best part of the software is the ability to see what all of my guys are up to out in the field and communicate with photos.” In the office or in the field, we couldn’t agree more.
HomeProSuccess said CompanyCam“seems to solve all [of our] problems.” The writer, Corey Philip, said previously, “With photos being taken by dozens of service techs, and seldom ending up into any time of useable organization, I constantly find myself wasting hours trying to digging through our photos for marketing content, and also sending out group texts and pulling my guys aside to dig up pictures when we need to defend a client damage claim.”
Silicon Praire News said, “CompanyCam solves contractors’ problems with project management app.” CompanyCam tapped Art of the Supplement’s resident supplement expert, John Dye for advice on how contractors can make the most out of their use of the app. Check it out for the best advice on how CompanyCam can grow your business, even when you’re already expecting a great financial year.
Joe L. named CompanyCam, “The best photo app on the market.” He went on to say, “If you’re in the service industry restoration, roofing, plumbing, heating and cooling it doesn’t matter. If you’re not using CompanyCam and your competition is, then you’re losing opportunities. Having the ability to do a detailed photo report upon inspection has helped us secure more work than anything else we’ve ever done. If you think you don’t need another app or better way to take photos you’re sadly mistaken show me one job flow that doesn’t start with taking photos. Documentation is key.”
What Y’all Are Adding to the Conversation: You Love it Too!
Here’s what some of the fine folk on the Internet had to say about CompanyCam’s documentation and organization. You can find all of CompanyCam’s customer reviews on their site, but here’s a sample:
Josh K. says, “Best app/company for storing multiple pictures of each individual clients property.”
Jacob H. says, “This app has proven itself time and again for me. Sending homeowners pictures of deteriorated plywood, proving unforeseen layers of shingles, and even getting me out of some gutter repairs that we didn’t damage.”
Matt B. from Burke Construction says, “After our free trial we were hooked! We’ve been using CompanyCam for a few months here. Over the years we have tried many different ways to get pictures from sales & estimating to the installers, over to marketing and back to customers. It’s never worked out the way we wanted it to. This app has become a key part of our daily operations.”
“CompanyCam has definitely helped our communication, without a doubt. Everything in this business is urgent; it’s about how fast you can put your eyeballs on a situation and come up with a solution.”
“This is the coolest flipping thing since sliced bread. My guys are constantly emailing/texting me pictures. Then I have to print them, save them etc. It’s always been a royal pain. This is so great that all of them go to one place.”
“CompanyCam pays for itself in just a couple incidents where a customer says, ‘No, I don’t want to pay for that’ and it’s a thousand dollars. The app just paid for itself three times over. It’s a no brainer!”
“I used to make hundreds of phone calls every day just to keep up to speed with the progress of our jobs. Now I’ve cut that in half and know twice as much!”
“The ease of use, the instant photo sharing and labeling makes our work a lot easier to communicate with homeowners, property management and crews.”
“Our technicians were sending job site photos to each other’s phones, my phone and various computers. We missed photos, we would lose them, it went to the wrong computer, people were calling and saying ‘I sent it’ and it wasn’t there. It was a mess.”
“CompanyCam solves the need to store the photos. That was our initial thing: where to store the photos? We were having so much trouble with storage space with iCloud and all these different things. Now, no one has to worry about storage — they can just take photos!”
“We are definitely taking more photos now… for one because we have more people able to do it and have it all in the same place and it’s just more convenient.”
“CompanyCam is saving me money in the first two weeks of using it, and I’m saving a ridiculous amount of paper!”
“I absolutely love this app. It is awesome.”
“CompanyCam makes it so simple to collaborate.”
“I’m really liking having access to the photos in real time as opposed to my techs uploading into Google Drive.”
“We’re pumped. CompanyCam is simple to use and it’s saving us money.”
“Now that I’m using CompanyCam, I don’t have to rely on Dropbox to store my photos. CompanyCam takes care of everything instantly and stores every photo in the cloud— not on my phone!”
“At the risk of sounding unprofessional, I think I love you man! CompanyCam is everything I would want if I could design it myself!”
“What I like is that as the GM, I can see what my team is looking at in the field. It helps to have a second set of eyes on projects because items do get missed. It also can be used as quality control from your desk!”
“Lo que me gusta es que como gerente general puedo ver lo que mi equipo está mirando en el campo. Es útil tener un segundo par de ojos en los proyectos porque los elementos se pierden. ¡También se puede utilizar como control de calidad desde su escritorio!”
“This program is amazing…I mean the thing is everyone has a cell phone and can be taking pictures but there’s no real easy to get them. Being able to have this hub…well it’s pretty incredible!”
“Man I love it. It’s real easy to use and very intuitive. Set me free to do what I need to help my company prosper. Thanks for the great app. Changed my life, seriously!”
“Any time everybody is on the same page, you’re going to grow your business. CompanyCam makes that way easier for us in every respect.”
“It is very helpful getting pictures..with ORGANIZATION back to the home office. It’s a 10 on a 1 to 5 scale.”
“We love this, its exactly what we needed. Trying to teach people how to upload to Dropbox, and having to have them know how to create a new folder is incredibly hard for them, this is by far easier for them and us in the office. Thank you guys a lot!”
“I’m not a picture guy but this app is sick and so easy to use. I’ve been roofing for 16 years and hated taking pictures. Now I love it.”
“My bosses are happy with me cause it’s so easy for me to get them the pictures they want.”
“Before everyone was taking and storing photos their own way and not consistent. This helped us be more consistent and centralized making it very easy to search, find, and share images.”
“I have three of my techs using the app now and myself. I can’t say enough about how it has saved our field techs and our office staff so much time compared to our old methods. I’m extremely happy with CompanyCam!”
“With CompanyCam, we’re able to bring the customer “on top of the roof”. We share a project link with the customer so they can see live updates of our progress and the customer doesn’t have to worry about anything.”
“CompanyCam helps us get the right information to the right person, fast! It’s an invaluable communication tool for our business.”
“I literally go home at least an hour earlier than I used to because of CompanyCam and being able to get more done during the day. CompanyCam is so easy, my dad could use it!”
“It’s liability, it’s marketing, it’s really a lot of tools in a really simple program.”
“I use this for my roofing company and it’s well worth the money! GAME CHANGER!”
“It was always a problem getting our guys to send pictures back to the office. This app makes it very easy. Also everyone can see every picture right from their phones.”
“Something we struggle with is accountability. So when you’re in the field and you’re required to take pictures of your work, there’s going to be a lot of pride behind that and a lot of accountability behind that.”
“We love CompanyCam. It’s the best thing we’ve done for our business yet.”
“CompanyCam helps us solve problems because we can interact with people in the field in real-time and track the progress of jobs throughout the day.”
“It’s awesome that if an insurance company asks me to send photos for a supplement, I can quickly search an address and find everything I need, even if it’s 6 months later. I was tired of looking through 3,000 photos on my phone.”
“Our techs say it saves them 30 minutes to 1 hour per project handling photos. We ran 1000+ calls last year and every job we evaluate we set up a CompanyCam project and save assessment photos. It’s a tool we can’t image not having as a resource now.”
“We’ve had to take pictures of everything. We’ve gone from traditional cameras to dropbox to CompanyCam. The ease of use is tremendous. If you can use a cell phone, you can use CompanyCam.”
“We are finding different ways we can become more efficient. CompanyCam gives us better visibility to the managers in the office. We are able to get instant access to our information out in the field.”
“Having CompanyCam allows us a platform to say “we did what was needed,” which helps us and all of our customers have some accountability.”
“I’ve seen similar things, but nothing quite like CompanyCam.”
“We just did a $4.3mil claim where I copy and pasted the timeline link on the back of my claims package shared over 700 photos to the carrier in one click. Before CompanyCam I would have had to manually send a bunch of emails and attach 20 photos per email.”
“Puede supervisar proyectos sin tener que estarallí todo el tiempo, lo que nos libera de tiempo para tener un mayor volumen de proyectos. El tiempo es dinero.”
“CompanyCam is more than just an app for us. It is our way for us to communicate internally and externally. It is a visual piece that is going to be just as important for us from a communication standpoint as email. So for us, it’s more than an app. It’s how we’re going to hold our people accountable, it’s how we’re going to show our pride, and ultimately communicate in a way that’s cutting edge and above and beyond what everyone in our field and industry are doing.”
“Most of all it saves error because we can all communicate with a photo. Communication is crystal clear.”
“We did a bid a year ago, just a basic mulch job, and the homeowner decided she’d wait a while longer. Well, this season she called us up again and because we had all the photos from the last time we went out there we were able to get her a quote without making a trip back to the property.”
“We save hours each week, just in communicating back and forth about jobs.”
“One of my customers, Jill, could see her dining room shades getting installed from work — before she even got home — then sent the link to the photos to her husband . It took her 30 seconds and she was blown away.”
“Before CompanyCam, a designer would have to find us back at the gallery and ask us questions then get back to the client the following day. With CompanyCam, we can solve problems and answer questions live, while they’re still at the clients house.”
“CompanyCam just protects you. Especially if you’re in the construction business, you need to document and you need that transparency.”
Company Cam is essential. We are a very visual industry and we have to have it.
Use the app and I love it. Makes my life easy and improves communication with my teams.
“CompanyCam saves us at least one trip to the home per install which means the time, the gas, the payroll. All of that efficiency makes CompanyCam worth it.”
I use it for my landscaping company. Organization and clear communication are very important to me, with this app it allows us to be extremely on point. Highly recommend!
We use CompanyCam at Adventures Outback and AO Services in Austin, TX. Makes our job WAY easier.
Excellent app for customer accountability. My crew doesn’t love technology or being told they have to take pictures, but the ease of the app helped me roll this out! Thank you for helping us keep customers honest with photo documentation!
Life before CompanyCam sucked. As a contractor, the #1 app you should be spending money on every month for all your project managers and sales teams that are out on sites is CompanyCam.
Great app! I am a landscape architect and contractor, this helps me communicate my design intent to the guys in the field.
My company has been using this app for about 3 months now. I’ve been roofing for 15 years and having to take pictures and get pictures printed was a pain in the ass, but this is so much easier to use. Especially when you travel in the roofing industry love this app
Using CompanyCam, we can be assured our painters and clients know exactly what is going on.
“Since we’re taking photos during the initial measure, I can go back in before the install and I know what I’m walking into without having to call back to the office.”
Fantastic program and great customer service. CompanyCam has greatly improved the way our business shares project information. Highly recommend!
CompanyCam has increased our productivity dramatically and we’ve easily saved over $100,000.
They are very useful, and with COVID-19 the inspectors aren’t going out to the houses, so we’re sending our [CompanyCam] pictures to the inspectors and they’re using them for inspections — very helpful.
Son muy útiles y, con COVID-19, los inspectores no van a las casas, por lo que enviamos nuestras fotografías de [CompanyCam] a los inspectores y las utilizan para las inspecciones, muy útiles.
“My team and I absolutely love this app. My sales team can take a picture while standing on a roof and I can see it instantly on my desktop in the office. We like that the photos don’t stay on your phone, but go immediately to the cloud. I highly recommend this to every contractor.”
“Company Cam is one of the most important tools to have in your box. There are many great uses for this inexpensive and industry-changing app. One is to allow customers access to the punch list. The customer and the company management can see the completed work without ever having to walk the property again.”
“This is hands down the best photo app on the market. It has saved our team hundreds of man-hours sorting, downloading, transferring, and/or uploading photos to our CRM. The best thing is their support is second to none. You can call, text, email, or chat and they answer within a few moments.”
“I don’t know how we ever lived without it. As a production manager, I live on this app. All my job photos are organized in one place. It allows me to give detailed instructions to the crews on exactly what needs to be done. The more you use and learn about the app, the more useful it becomes!”
“Easy to use and understand. The ability to capture data in real-time, date-stamped, geo-targeted, and archived in the cloud for our office to instantly manage, comment, & use for business decisions is priceless. The CompanyCam team is dedicated to being the best in-the-field data capture platform. I highly recommend trying it… You won’t be disappointed!”
“CompanyCam is a very well-conceived aid to my business. CompanyCam provided a one source application to better manage our business, especially on the service side. By offering the real-time ability to see issues in the field, I am much more informed and able to assist in any decision making. I recommend this application to any company that wants a simple and effective means to better manage their personnel in the field.”
“I am the office manager of a rapidly growing roofing company and this app has changed my life! To have all of our photos in one place AND be able to invite clients to see their job being done in real-time has been a complete game-changer! I can not recommend this app enough.”
“One of my favorite apps to utilize when I meet up with potential clients. CompanyCam is easy to use & take time-stamped notes. CompanyCam allows us over at @trulinepainting to keep track of the projects. Our CompanyCam daily photo updates are a great way to keep everyone on the same page, as well as allowing the client access to the photos we would like to share. Be About it!!”
“It is the best tool we use for protecting our company from damage claims that we would have had to payed out. With CompanyCam, we have before and after pictures of our work that are easy to find and clearly show damages that were there before our work started. Very easy to use.”
“Service or construction industry? Look no further! This is the app for you! CompanyCam has saved me countless hours. And “hours” translates into $$$. CompanyCam makes your photo storage seamless. There are sooo many uses for CompanyCam! As a bonus customer service is ABOVE and BEYOND!”
“La facilidad de uso, el intercambio instantáneo de fotos y las etiquetas hacen que nuestro trabajo sea mucho más fácil de comunicar con los propietarios, la administración de propiedades y el personal.”
CampanyCam is easy to use and gives me eyes in the field over multiple projects instantaneously. It is also helps me communicate to my customer by showing them what our crews completed and when.
Simple, organized, time-saving, huge value-added app. This is a phenomenal tool that helps earn a prospective customer’s trust right off the bat when we send them PDF reports with comments right from the truck/field after inspecting their roof. Homeowners/customers love the ability to check in on jobs when we share the project timeline link to see the progress made when we are replacing their roofs, providing them confidence that we are doing as we promise. I highly recommend this app for ALL contractors.
Technology has not saved me any time as a contractor. Honestly, not once. Until CompanyCam came along. It saves me so much time it’s hard to imagine all the ways CompanyCam has positively impacted our company.
I love this app and it makes life so easy in the landscape industry! I recommend it to everyone. I even used it when selling my pop-up camper on Facebook Marketplace. I love that CompanyCam also keeps updating and integrating. If I have had any questions in the past the help desk is quick and intelligent.
We find it to be very useful when collaborating about landscaping projects.
CompanyCam is the best photo documentation product that I’ve used in my 13-year career. Simple, Intuitive, and Productive.
Great company! Being the marketing director for an HVAC company, I often use some of our CompanyCam photos for our marketing efforts.
