Trak vs Crewtraka
AN ALTERNATIVE TO
Both Trak and Crewtraka are job management apps, with an emphasis on coordinating jobs and team members. Crewtraka has four different levels of payment plans (6 pack, Basic, Premium & Pro). As the only difference between the plans appears to be the amount of crew and managers you can add, we have decided to review the Basic plan. While Trak takes a holistic approach to job management, Crewtraka focuses more intently on scheduling of team members to jobs and either only allows for a shallow level of functionality in other areas or doesn't offer them at all. Unlike Trak, Crewtraka does boast a equipment yard feature that lets you track and schedule work equipment, however it doesn't have any ability to create quotes or invoices.
On Trak, you pay $1 per job. With that, you have access to all of the app’s base features. CrewTraka has four different plans, all with the same features but with differing numbers of staff included. The Basic plan (with 10 crew and 2 managers allowed) is $149 AUD per month.
Number of Staff
On Trak, you can add an unlimited amount of staff at no extra cost. While CrewTraka allows for an unlimited number of staff, there are higher costs involved for having more users.
Trak allows you to add an unlimited number of subcontractors who can log onto the app and see the relevant job information or their schedule. Crewtraka has a similar feature although they’re just called contractors.
Trak offers an estimating capability by showing accurate profits and allowing for margins and discounts. CrewTraka does not appear to have any estimating features at the time of writing this comparison.
Trak has an in-built job profitability tracker which takes into account all job expenses, timesheets, products expenses and more to give you a detailed overview of a job’s cost and profit margin. CrewTraka also has a similar job profitability tracker in their app.
Quoting & Invoicing
Trak allows you to easily create custom quotes and turn them into full invoices in seconds once approved. CrewTraka does not have any features that would allow you to create quotes or invoices for clients.
Trak allows you to take manual credit card, cash and cheque payments for jobs and create custom credit notes. Trak also integrates with Stripe and BPay for automatic transactions. CrewTraka does not have any payment-receiving functionality.
Trak allows you to easily schedule your jobs and non-job related items on the user calendar for events such as RDO’S or annual leave. CrewTraka also allows you to schedule employees for job and non-job related items.
Both apps allow users to sign off on SWMS in-app for jobs requiring them. However, Trak allows you to create your own SWMS in-app or buy templates from the template store, while CrewTraka only allows you to upload previously created PDF files for SWMS.
While CrewTraka has a range of editable reports available for its users, Trak has a comprehensive report builder that lets you build completely customised report templates that you can then use to complete reports in the field.
Trak allows for various types of files to be attached to jobs, quotes, invoices, clients, reports and SWMS. CrewTraka also allows you to attach files to jobs and certain reports.
