Has Improved Over Years, But Still Has A Way To Go

I’ve used this app enough years to see that it has improved, but there is still a way to go. It’s extremely difficult to look through job notes, because the preview is so small you have to open each note to really see anything. The recently introduced tags (and already existing job alerts) are not visible in the mobile app, so making a tag like “Do Not Use Customer Restroom” doesn’t do much good, since field workers on Dash Mobile are the ones that really need to see that. I do like the ProAssist feature, but would prefer the notes created by using that were separate from the job notes, due to the aforementioned limited note view on mobile.

DASH for the win!!!

This app is great for our team. We are in a rural area and don’t have the greatest service in some places yet with the download job feature we don’t need great service to do our job. The picture uploads are fast and easy. Everything is within the reach of your thumb. The GREATEST thing about the NEXTGEAR app is that the developers listen. People made “suggestions” (really just complained) on improving functions and next thing I know BAM! the function was updated. You can’t please everyone but I feel like if it makes sense for the majority then NEXTGEAR does respond. Thank you guys for providing a resource that allows our company to document our work, communicate with customers and even market to our contacts!

No option for zero stars.

In my company I don’t work with the desktop software which I’ve heard is a MUCH better experience. I have used the mobile app daily since 2015 and it is without a doubt the most poorly written and executed excuse for an app I’ve ever had the displeasure to work with. Like clicking twice or thrice to execute a simple search? Like lost data and freezes/crashes? Are slow load times and constant password updates your thing? Then sign right up! If Next Gear has done one thing consistently it’s their seeming constant refusal to turn this app into something a field technician would be able to use without turning his/her tablet into a frisbee. Dash is trash. Avoid at all costs unless you’re stuck like me

To NGS: Please don’t tag this with the usual automated corporate response. Y’all don’t have any desire to make this thing any better. And I’ve no wish to recommend fixes you’re not going to implement.
