  • Great App

    Very useful and quite easy to use once you figure out the features. Only gripe is that customers receive their invoice via MSM but never via email.
  • Great Contractor App

    By KWLondon
    As a General Contractor, this app is great for our use. It looks like the developers are on the right path with this, and continue to develop it in a positive and efficient manner since using it for the past 6 months. I do wish that there was a notification on the actual estimate when opening the application to view directly, vs. showing it, but then when you open the application, there is nothing to reference it. Unless, you see the notification before actually opening the app. I’d be open to help with any future developments! Keep up the good work!
  • They turn functions you have off on without notice

    By billyyd
    I received two deposits through the app in the last week. They turned payments on without my knowledge, after the first I had to refund my clients money and explain the whole process to them. I then went and turned payments off. A couple days later I received another deposit through their online payment option. I now have to explain and refund this persons money as well. Their online payments required too much personal info for my comfort so I stick to Square or a simple check.
  • Really helpful

    Really easy to work with and also fast
  • Multiple users

    By Suslapple
    I’ve been using joist for 3+ years now. We have grown to a salesforce of 6 but there is still no option for multiple users. Although it has been a good application beginning in 2019 we will be moving to QuickBooks that allows for multiple users. I do recommend for single user and hate to leave.

    I am a small general contractor and Washington DC and have been using Joist for over nine months now. I find it easy to use and throughout the time of me using it, the developers have been constantly improving it’s functionality!

    I really like the software but would like better notifications and monthly break downs of sales.

    I started using this program for simple invoicing but as I became more familiar with Joist I realized it is much more than that.
