Is Ascora the only Job Management to charge this cost?

No, it is common practice for any advanced software, not only job management, to charge an implementation or onboarding fee. Depending on your package, this fee covers your setup, training and support which you may otherwise have to pay for separately or may not be provided.

We’ve worked with thousands of trade businesses over the years and have put together packages that will suit your business size and needs once we understand your business workflows. We will recommend the most cost-effective package that best suits your workflow to you to get you up and running in the shortest possible time.

I have used other software and they don’t have a setup fee

This really depends on whether you’re looking for a basic job management system that covers only a fraction of your business or powerful software that truly makes a difference to the level of automation and provides your business with a platform to systemise, grow and scale.
