1. Can I try the software before purchasing it?
This is the most important question to ask, as trying the field management software for plumbers before buying will allow you to decide whether the system is too complicated before you pay a large amount.

2. Can I continue to use my current accounting software?
If you are already using a tried and trusted accounting system, it can be extremely difficult to transfer all your employees, customer and other pertinent information over to a new system, so it is important to find a solution that allows for integration.
3. Can I assign multiple employees to one project?
You might need a team of plumbers working on one project, so it is important to find a field management software
that allows you to assign more than one employee to a job and allow for the client's input on the assigned job.
4. Does the software allow for hourly payment?
If you have an hourly payment structure, it would be best to find a software that has a time-tracking feature. Some software has this feature built-in, but it is important to find out how user-friendly it is, as it also allows for the ability to calculate accurate costs of projects for customers.
5. Can I store all my files and documents in one place?
Storing everything in one place will make it easier to access this information when you need it the most. Some field management software for plumbers will allow for this, but some will require you to use a product such as DropBox or Google Drive.
