It is hard to pin point but if I had to pick 1 I would say: The database is awesome in so many ways. We can instantly pull up a customer and all the info that was attached to his job so it can be duplicted (art specs, what type of product was ordered ect) and the work order design detail is simply great.

Invoice and Quoting, It takes a few minutes to put together a quote but once it is their the whole process is done! One more mouse click and I have an invoice ready for the customer. That portion alone is what killed us in the pre- fast manager days.

My front desk sales person, is very non computer literate, and in a weeks time she is doing everything she needs to and more and has confidence now.

Why would you recommend FastManager?

For us it moves us from point "A" to point "M" (for money) and eliminated all the ones in between, getting invoices and getting paid was always the downside of my business and after 19 years I don't have to worry about it anymore. At last from the billing stand point. I can't expect a customer to pay if they don't have a bill, now once the order is placed the bill is ready when I am. Thanks Fast Manager.

No, we use about 60% of the features.

Which feature in FastManager do you think is saving you the most money and why ? 

We find the simple features are the biggest time savers. Our favorites are the full price catalogs imported from most all distributers, the ability to send email directly from the program, and the ability to clearly and accurately put multiple decoration methods on the same invoice without loss of clarity.

The great thing about Fast Manager is you only have to use as much of the program as your comfortable with. If you don't want to track inventory, you don't have to. But if you do, that feature is available to you at any time. Plus, the people at Fast Manager really listen to the requests of their customers. If you'd like a new feature added, your comments are seriously considered when the new updates are released.

User friendly and very quick from screen to screen.

Why would you recommend FastManager?

The speed of order entry and the features that are being added are making this the program for all employees. Training is simplified - reporting is easier than ever and the ability to email quotes, artwork approval forms, sales quotes, financial reports and invoices make this very impressive for my customers to see. Even my small 4 person shop has the look of the big corporations. Fast Manger is taking my sporting goods store paperwork and trimmed down the wasted time to allow more production.

Within one week all of our staff were able to competently use Fast Manager

Why would you recommend FastManager?

Until we discovered Fast Manager our business was managing us. We now have total control over all aspects of our business. We are happy and so is our accountant. We have saved countless hours not having to double entry everything and are now able to see the progression of a job from initial order through every stage of ordering, production and customer payments. How the hell we managed before I don't know. Thank you Chris.

New task screen, imputting garments - quoting, and art work so production can visualize the job. Ordering is simpler and correct, with the print outs. The ability to communicate with all departments without everyone running around and spending half of their day talking and not working.

It is very customizable and fits our business perfectly

Why would you recommend FastManager?

Departments didn't know what and when each segment of a job was going to be done. For example, an order comes in it needed to be ordered (someone then needed to inventory it and needed paperwork), art work as needed, so information needed to get from sales to the art dept. From the art dept., screen printing or embroidery needed to know what art work went on what garments. Fast Manager is allowing us to communicate with other departments without missing a beat.

The sales screen because we are able to produce many quotes very quickly. My sales people are the highest paid employees so anything that can accomodate them to do things faster and more accurately the more it adds to the company's bottom line. I especially like the fact that MY PRICES are what is generated in FM and my staff must sell at these.

it is so easy to use that even my production people who never used a computer before learned what they needed in the program in less than an hour!

Why would you recommend FastManager?

I can't imagine running the business without it! I don't know how we did things before this program. There were so many "loopholes" in the old paper system that managing people was nearly impossible. We lost $$$MILLIONS$$$ over the years in our paper system from employee mistakes. Invoices not getting created, production not being repeatable and sales staff "making up prices" all lead to this HUGE depletion on the company's monies. FastManager COMPLETELY ELIMINATED those loopholes!

PO Wizard - Order accuracy is dead on, also saving the time to compile an order list Re-order feature - Historical orders are repeated correct avoiding wrong design detail or product items, therefore scrap and remakes. The best link between items/designs on previous orders protecting order accuracy.

FastManager shouldn't only be looked at as a pricing program, or a scheduling program, but an overall usable archive of the companies customer base. From design quality protection, previously ordered products, customer information, vendor database of products to an interface with QuickBooks Pro that we rely on heavily each day. Chris has done an excellent job it putting this program together and strives to continue accomodate the needs of the industry.

Why would you recommend FastManager?

This system has improved drastically from when I looked at it a few years ago. I hope my local competition doesn't read my testimonial, and I hope they never get this program!!!! We are at an advantage with this system. I paid thousands trying to get a program created only to purchase this in the end.

The scheduling feature! It saves us a lot of time. We have one women who puts in all of our orders and she put in 45 orders in one 7 hr. day. She made a comment the other day, "If it gets any easier I will be out of a job". LOL!

All the screens are self explanatory. If you do have a question....you can move your cursor over the button and it will tell you what the button does.

We have been using Fast Manager since the beginning of time. We looked around before we got the "New" Fast Manager and we couldn't find anything that compared to it. We love all the updates. Everytime we think we have it all, you guys come up with new update to make it faster and easier. WE LOVE IT!

Quotations for sure. It is so simple and saves a ton of time with double entry. Customers love leaving with a copy of the quote. #2 is the Quickbooks Integration tool. This is very powerful and will prove very important in the future when I need to pull reports.

The interface is its greatest asset. Very friendly and easy to train on.

Why would you recommend FastManager?

Chris and the crew really care about their customers and they make sure that every feature that is added is easy to use and that it will save you time and money. There is no better software out there at any price level and I know this first hand as I have used much more expensive software.
