You know what really gets under my skin? When software companies decide to hike up their prices without any good reason.
I run a small business, and times are tough. It seems like everyone's tightening their belts and watching their expenses closely. I've had to cut down on subscriptions across the board and start searching for more affordable alternatives.
That's why I was thrilled to come across the Manifold App, an alternative to CompanyCam for job-site photo documentation. Let me tell you, it's hands down the best alternative for a few key reasons.
First off, let's talk about price. CompanyCam starts at $24 per person, which is just outrageous for a photo documentation app. Meanwhile, Manifold is a steal at only $12 per person. CompanyCam's pricing feels like a punishment for trying to grow my business.
And don't even get me started on their aggressive marketing tactics. CompanyCam's salespeople are relentless. They bombard you with calls, emails, and ads everywhere you turn. In contrast, Manifold's team is a breath of fresh air. Sure, they might not be as flashy, but they're polite and they don't hound you. When I had an issue, the founder, Erik, personally reached out to help me troubleshoot.
Then there's the onboarding process. I've got a team member who's not exactly tech-savvy, and the Manifold team went above and beyond to assist him. They held three onboarding calls and patiently walked him through everything. Plus, they even transferred all my data from CompanyCam. It's clear they genuinely care about their customers. And just between you and me, I'd much rather support a small company that celebrates and cares about my $12 instead of a 300 person CORPORATION who doesn't care about my bottom line. Just my two cents.
Sure, CompanyCam is a solid product, but I can't justify the cost anymore. And I'd much rather support small teams with heart, like my own. If you're in the same boat, give the Manifold app a try at scanmanifold.com. Tell them Joe sent you!
