MCS mobile integration

Just saw that MCS is coming out with their own mobile app as well as using REOphoto. I signed up for the new release of REOphoto and it's working really good. Anyone else using it yet?

I think We may try it next month after we get our cell phone upgrades. We currently have iphone 3s with no flash so can't use them for our pictures.

What are the big differences between the free and paid versions? Are you able to do everything you need with the free version, or did you buy the upgraded program? I also looked into Pruvan but that's more than we want to pay right now.

The free version lets you get orders and do date/time stamped photos. The paid versions have several other cool features such as renaming photos, custom forms and mapping features. We started with the free to try it out then upgraded. It's been a god send for our crews.

As far as any bait and switch that wasn't the case. They give you the levels and you pick what you want.

I guess when I was referring to bait and switch I thought you were referring to the company that owns REOphoto. I've been with MCS for a year and their ok, got their good and bad just like every other national in this industry.

How is the system on data transfer fees???
I remember when FAS did the Pruvan thing our phone bill skyrocketed from 15 a month to over 500 because of the data transfer fees....
Does any carrier really have UNLIMITED data transfer plans??????

We have unlimited data through AT&T but my guys usually wait until the get to a free wifi spots throughout the day. One cool thing is they don't have hidden extra charges. One flat fee per month per device.

I'm a Pruvan user and would never go back to doing this business without it .... last I checked REO Photo was more expensive and didn't offer a free version or even a free trial. This could have changed ... or maybe you need to be an MCS vedor to get that?
I personally have an unlimited data plan, but I also haven't had any complaints from my subs about their data bills so I'm assuming it's not been a problem.
