What Sign Management Software is right for me??


Recommended Posts

I am way out of my depths here looking for the right job management software for our company. I've looked at Casper on the Cloud, Cyrious Control, and ShopVOX and there are pros and cons with each but I'd like to hear from people who actually use these and see what you think...features, pricing, support, etc.

A little background: we are a medium sized, full service sign company. We do national and local service and installs, manufacturing, vinyl and wide format printing, vehicle wraps, and lots more. We have about 15 full time employees. Could use some help!

I purchased Casper in 2004 at isa in Vegas. Hands down great decision. The team I met in 2004 (Eric and Linda) still answer the phone and reply to inquiries most time within minutes to this day. I am honestly not familiar with the other programs but Everyone who I’ve talked to about Casper has had the same experience. You can’t go wrong. Also, when we have a new employee we request online one on one training and it is scheduled fast and we don’t have to spend hours on training.

I hope this is helpful.

Probably 8 to 10 years ago we purchased Cyrious software. Explained that we are custom fabricators and not your typical sign company by any means.  Big waste of money, they never could get things figured out. That was for their estimating and tracking software.  Virtually no help from their HQ.  Can not recommend.

I've been using Cyrious for 9 years.  We are a small shop, 6 employees, full service shop, everything from vinyl to hi-rise signs.  Much better than what we had before, price books that we made with a spreadsheet, electric and custom projects all estimated by me figuring everything by hand.  It takes a great deal of time to input everything into the system, but the accuracy of what you get out is a reflection of the effort and thoroughness of what you put into it.  I also customized some of the pricing forms to work better for us.  Makes you much more consistent on pricing, no matter who is doing it.  Also lets you know your margin at the press of a key.  Also like the fact that I can set pricing levels, so for those customers that are slow to pay (and that is easy to see with this software) you can automatically set their pricing higher and they don't even know you did it.  There is a learning curve and I implemented it back in 2009 when things were slow for a reason.  I didn't want my people to be swamped and reverting back to the way we had always done it.  Although I heard a lot of grumbling when we started, no one here would go back to the way we did it before.  Good luck with whatever you choose.

They’re a stylish and fun method for drawing consideration and brightening up a plain dull wall. A neon sign doesn’t generally need to be something that shows your organization’s name or logo. Truth be told, it doesn’t need to be a text by any means. Perhaps you have a particular picture at the top of the priority list that addresses your business, like a mascot, an item, a product, or even a spot. You can make a unique LED neon sign for nearly anything you conjure up. Customize a neon sign of your food or beauty product for successful marketing. If your organization is a privately-run company, and you need to give recognition to that, you can add a neon country map as a stylistic theme to your wall to add an individual touch to your office interior décor.

Whether you have a new, limited, or best-selling product or service in-store, using custom neon signs to advise your customers about it, is multiple times more compelling than customary promoting.
