  • Awesome!

    I own a handyman business so I do a lot of estimates and invoices every month. I have been using joist for about three months now. I don’t know what I would do without it. Joist makes it so easy to create a estimate and send a invoice it’s a huge time saver. The estimates look very professional and the nice thing is it only takes me 5 minutes to write an estimate. This app costs me a little more than $100 per year I feel like that is fairly inexpensive for the amount of time it saves me every month. Joist syncs nice with QuickBooks a feature I love. I like how I get a notification every time one of my customers opens or views my estimate. My costumers have the option to pay online which is very convenient. There are many more features I like about joist. The one thing I would like to see change is the 3% charge for every credit card payment it would be nice if it could be closer to 1 1/2%. I feel like this app will continue to get better as new features are added. Keep up the good work joist teem!!

  • Pros and cons

    The app fir the invoicing is great but do yourself a favor and don’t use the credit card pay or check. Everything was going great and getting paid faster and they wanted me to update my info, so I did. A couple weeks go by and they refund 5 payment. I had to ask my clients for money again, how embarrassing!!! I tried to talk to joist help and they would respond once and then nothing. I’m on the look out for a new invoicing app so long to joist ASAP

    I find joist to be helpful for in the field estimates and billing. Joist help has been efficient when issues have occurred and resolutions were quick and positive.
  • Joist is Great!

    By trumatthvac
    Our company has enjoyed Joist since we first found it. The service was free at that time and was a no-brainer. They started charging a monthly fee...and rightfully so! It is still a great product that we use for estimates and we will continue to use it with shared success. Thank you for creating a simplistic approach to estimating. We love it and so do our customers.
  • Unsatisfactory and very disappointed

    By happy builders
    I have been using joist for close to a year with great success! The app worked well with my business needs. Now with the extra pro charges they have introduced I am going to look else where to produce my estimates and invoices. I am very disappointed and feel like I have been mislead as they promised it would be free for the use. The fees with paying thru the app are high enough now the pro fees? It’s too much and I will be looking else where. I am not wanting to uproot as I enjoy the app but I’m not willing to pay this much for the services that use to be free!
  • Great app

    By karina_lm
    I’m been using this up for more than a year and I just thinks it’s great! It helped my business look more professional and on top of that I could sync it to my accounting system for an extra fee a year, not bad. I like all the features it has and I utilize them as much as possible but now there’s a fee for that. It is a small fee but now I have move away from this appt due to my business growing and now needing a CRM system. I’m glad joist is growing and I can see they will eventually evolved into a CRM and I look forward to that.
