Trak vs Tradify



Lets see how they compare...

Trak and Tradify are both web-based trade management apps. The Tradify software only has one pricing option, which is paid per user per month. They also advertise there are no add ons or catches to this. Tradify offers its users a mobile app, which is unmatched by Trak. However, Trak offers additional features such as Report Builder, SWMS, and the ability to take automatic in-app payments.

On Trak, you pay $1 per job and get access to all of the base features on the app. Tradify is $39 per month for each user on your account.

per user per month

Number of Staff


Trak allows you to have an unlimited number of users at no extra cost. On Tradify, you’re limited by your budget for each month, as each user is an additional cost.


On Trak, you can easily add a subcontractor to your account for just the cost of one job – that’s $1. Subcontractors can be added jobs, and have limited access to details and features. On Tradify, when creating a job, you can add an email address for a subcontractor and they will receive the job number, address, customer details, site details, job description and any tasks, but they will not have access to the app.

Customisable Permissions

Both apps allow you to edit permission settings. On Tradify, you’re able to set an individual user’s permissions when setting their account up. On Trak, you can create as many user groups as you like, and set the permissions for each.

Customer Portal

Neither app currently offers a portal or equivalent for customers to access information.

Quoting & Invoicing

Both apps offer advanced quoting and invoicing options, with the ability for approval, and to add signatures, notes and attachments.

Manual Payments

Users of both apps can record manual payments made via bank deposit, cash or credit card. Companies on Trak can also add credit notes.

Automatic In-App Payments

When you connect your Stripe account or BPAY account with Trak, you’re able to take automatic in-app credit card payments. Tradify does not have any automatic payment options.


Both apps allow companies to schedule jobs and users. On Trak, the in-app scheduler can also be integrated with external calendars.


Tradify timesheets operate similarly to Trak’s. On both apps, users can enter hours and assign them to jobs, add your billing rate and add notes. On Tradify you can assign entires to tasks, and on Trak you’re able to assign them to non-job items.


Trak allows admins to create SWMS templates for users to complete when on the job-site. Tradify does not have this feature.

Report Builder

On Trak, reports that are commonly used for a company can be created from scratch to be completed when needed (e.g. job completion reports). This is not a feature that Tradify currently has.

File Attachment

Both apps allow you to attach files to quotes, invoices, jobs, etc. However, through Tradify, this can only be done by adding notes.


On Trak, you’re able to annotate any file that is uploaded, this includes adding text or drawings. Tradify does not offer this feature.


Both apps allow users to create tasks for jobs. However, Tradify is limited to that. Trak allows users to create stand-alone tasks, or create them from quotes, invoices, reports and more.


On Trak, you can select statuses from drop-down menus for all jobs, quotes and invoices. On Tradify, these features are automatically assigned statuses which can be reset, but functionality is restricted.

Customisable Statuses

Trak allows you to create statuses that are completely custom for your company, so instead of draft, approved, etc., you can have what works for you. As Tradify’s status usage is already limited, the app does not have this feature.


On Tradify, customers signatures can only be captured on the mobile app, for job sheets. On Trak, signatures can be captured for users or for customers on quotes, invoices, reports and SWMS.

Accounting Integrations

Tradify offers Xero, Quickbooks and MYOB Essentials & AccountRight for accounting integrations at no extra cost to the user. Trak offers a one way integration with Xero, where data such as clients and invoices can be pushed to the software, and also offers data exports for MYOB.

Mobile App

Tradify offers its users a native mobile app which has the same features. Alternatively, Trak offers its users a progressive web app that can be easily accessed on your mobile.

Neither app currently works offline. Trak and both of Tradify’s web and phone apps require internet connections.
