  • Glitches and Unresponsive Customer Support

    By Xk796
    The app functions moderately well but has a couple glitches. One major glitch is invoices I sent my clients were not being delivered. In one instance I didn’t realize this until weeks had past and I still hadn’t received payment. I have reached out to customer support twice to resolve what I consider to be very important issues. Once involving security, where I was continually notified that my invoices were being open over and over at all hours of the night. The second time was to resolve the issue mentioned above. Customer support was completely unhelpful. Nothing was resolved and they seemed ok with that, meanwhile I’m seriously questioning the app security and dependability. Many apps provide excellent, caring customer service like Hurdlr and PayPal. They work for my subscription. Joist does not. I’m exploring an alternative app to do business because I need dependable support and security
  • It’s the best.

    Once you get your items input, you’re on the way to a fast and easy estimate and sending invoices.
  • Amazing

    By Dave.1043
    This app was great when it first became online. We started using it shortly after it was introduced. I am CEO of Ultra Exteriors, Inc. I can’t rate the app highly enough. Every home improvement contractor should use it except my competitors. Our estimates look so professional Compared to theirs and that get me the job many times even if we are are charging more. It makes us look like we are more professional. The new features allows us to turn the estimate to an invoice is about 5 seconds and get a signature on the IPad. We can get our clients financed and collect the job all from the app. The money transferred directly into our bank. Thank you Joist team! Your are making it better every day!

    I can’t say enough good things about the Joist app! I started out using it occasionally for estimates and invoices. Because of the amazing support team and the incredibly user-friendly interface, I have moved to using it exclusively for all of my estimates and billing. The app has been updated regularly, and each time they have added valuable services that only make it better for my business. I recently signed up for their credit card processing service, and I’ve been thrilled with the speed of payments. Customers can pay online with a credit card or electronic check as soon as they receive my invoice, and the money is quickly deposited directly to my account. **Please don’t tell the developers this, but I would have gladly paid for this app once I saw how insanely helpful it is.** It’s a must for any business, small or large. Thanks Joist!!! Keep up the great work!

    This app, has made my job easier as a Handyman! I am not a large company, so I don't have the resources to pay someone, to do this for me. It has made my life easier, as a result of the simplicity of the app. Gary
