"All-in-one" refers to the fact that Wintac is a single, all-inclusive program for managing your entire business. While other service management programs may claim to be all-inclusive, none that we are aware of integrate all of the following components in one program:

  • Field Service Management
  • Field Installation Management
  • Customer Relationship Management
  • Contact Management
  • Property Management
  • Vendor Management
  • Employee Management
  • Office Management
  • Sales/Marketing Management
  • Purchase Management
  • Inventory Management
  • Payroll Management
  • Financial/Accounting Management
  • Vehicle Management

Moreover, all of Wintac's components are seamlessly integrated with the same intuitive look and feel. While many programs are built around a jumble of separate, poorly-integrated modules, Wintac was designed from the ground up as a single all-inclusive system. The result is a faster, more stable program that is far easier to learn and use than products with comparable features.
