Backbone Of My Small Business

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: So far, so amazing!!! 10 steps ahead over the train-wreck that I had, so literally anything is better that what I was experiencing...

Pros:

I have needed a CRM for my photography business that actually works. I had invested in an absolutely TERRIBLE software that had caused me nothing but problems ever since it was launched. A friend had told me about Tave and how amazing it was. A bit hard to set up and fairly complicated, but great nonetheless. I am not scared of complicated. Once it's set up, it's incredible. It has EVERYTHING I need to run all workflows needed for Wedding, Commercial, Event and Photo Booth, everything I do in my photography business!! It handles contracts with ease, it can set up automations for emails to go out at certain hours, it's just flawless. I can't rave about it enough.

Cons:

It's not easy to set up, you have to have patience and reach out to support. But that's not a bad thing. Once you set it up, it's a well oiled machine. Trust the process and it will work!!!

Robust Software, A little too robust.

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: Overall, Tave served my studio well. As we streamline, grow and have a very niche market now, it's just not the right fit for us.

Pros:

Tave is extremely robust and offers an exceptional experience when needing to detail all items of a client and the interactions with clients. The ability to follow breadcrumbs of issues back to the source is great as everything is time stamped and offers detail on actions taken.

Cons:

Tave is difficult to navigate. It make even the smallest tasks take time and is very detailed down to what relationship the person has to the event or project. The mobile features are useless. It's such a large database and so robust, there is no app and trying to make the smallest of changes or updates on the go is completely too cumbersome. As a software aimed at photographers, this software was built for a corporation and is not ideal for Studios that range from 2-20 employees. It takes entirely too long to learn, train, use and update. I have been using it daily for years, so I became very proficient, but when compared to other options, this is a not the most pleasant user interface.

Great for photographers running a single person business

3.0 4 years ago

Comments: Ive been using it for years... my business has grown and I am looking at how to better use Tave to support my business growth.

Pros:

Tave offers a clean interface and has useful automations for eliminating manual tasks. I has a solid lead capture and CRM aspect.

Cons:

The accounting features are not compliant with GAAP - no way to do line item expenses etc... There is also very little way to relabel all the photographer oriented fields, making it a bit less relevant to other industries. There is also little ways to customize the looks unless you know CSS coding by hand.

Easy to use, affordable CRM software

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: All in one solution for the on the go production company.

Pros:

This software is focused around small businesses and the ability to manage their day to day operations. Tave does a great job making it easy to use, plenty of integration of billing, tracking and presenting sales to clients. I used to use multiple companies for aspects of my company (billing, contracts, and sales), Tave allows me to have everything in a one stop shop that makes it easy for both myself and my clients.

Cons:

The only con with this software, and its with any software for CRM software is I needed to commit to using it and transferring my existing clients to this system, which was fairly seamless compared to larger companies out there who either charge a larger annual cost or make it difficult to input existing data.

TAVE!!

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: The benefits far outweigh the beginning frustration with setting up.

Pros:

It practically runs my business for me compared to anything else i've tried. I'm more of a creative and loath anything business wise. Once I learned how everything worked it became easier and more streamlined.

Cons:

starting off was TOUGH....but i was admittedly lazy as far as watching tutorials and reading from the forums. I just wanted it all done for me. I still struggle.
