Hi Manoj Thank you for leaving us a review! We have taken your feedback on board regarding the extra cost and will discuss it with the team. The extra cost (10 credits) is for the embedded eSignatures, which we have seen increase conversion rates significantly. Please let us know if you have any further feedback. It is great to have you as a Pylon user.

Shading Analysis

5 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: Good

Vorteile:

Shading analysis helped me identify the outputs from where it was most appropriate to install panels

Nachteile:

Couldn't see the effect of Power Optimisers/Micro inverters on a shaded panel - I think there should be an option where while adding panels on the roof we can choose which panels or sections we would like optimise and the effect on the total output. There also needs to be a clear way to include roof height - I am sure there currently is but its not very clear how to do so

Hi Neel Thank you for leaving us a review! You are correct, we don't yet take that into account, but please if you can create a feature request for that here: https://app.getpylon.com/feedback/features I will upvote it so it gets done faster. As a note, we recommend users to bring the overall system efficiency up to 92% to account for the increase in performance. It is great having you as a Pylon user :) Please reach out to us if we can help you with anything else.

Great starter product

5 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: Simple and very easy to navigate

Vorteile:

The ease of use and being able to set pricing up so easy for small business that design and install the systems.

Nachteile:

It would be great if on the design page you could indicate where the inverter will be located, possibly same as the cabling run to assist with the manual you are required to give here in Australia. Also (I haven’t fully looked into it yet) having the ability to upload a manual template and then when the panels and inverter are selected the documents required are automatically uploaded and possibly the same for other components used as well. Needs more training videos etc on how to work through every little aspect

Antwort von Pylon

vor 6 Monaten

Hi Shane - thank you for leaving us a detailed review! You CAN specify the Inverter location. In the design studio, select the Annotations Tool (second up from bottom), then drag the inverter location to your design. Regarding your idea for a manual template - you're right, we haven't yet added this as a feature, but please if you can create a feature request we may work on it and release it for you! :) https://app.getpylon.com/feedback/features We are always working to create more help resources. Thank you for highlighting that need for us. It's great having you as a Pylon user :)

pricing is expensive compare what’s in the market .

Antwort von Pylon

vor 6 Monaten

Hi Ranim Thank you for your review. Pylon is priced far below market competitors to reduce overheads for solar installers such as yourself and increase your profit margin. For most installers, the cost of using Pylon is far below the cost of buying the imagery itself. We also charge per project instead of per month so you only pay for what you use. If you have any suggestions for us, please feel free to reach out to us in-app. Thank you for being a Pylon user!

Pylon Review

5 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: Has been very positive. Feedback from my recent customer was they information provide from the pylon quote and subsequent owners pack was great.

Vorteile:

One stop solution. I’ve only just started using the system and found it very easy to use. Information and support readily available and the option to pay per use suits a smaller operator like myself perfectly compared to others.

Nachteile:

I haven’t had any issues at all other than having to request some features be turned on or some site/map arrangement Lis be made available. Those request were dealt with by online help within minutes.

Kommentare: I have found the software a great help in selling to the customer . Very happy with outcomes

Vorteile:

As a small company I love the fact you can pay per job and it is not charged out at a monthly amount.

Nachteile:

The lay out changes when you down load the proposal and attach to our quotation software but this could be a operator error as I am a better Electrician than computer operator. I quite often need to add the solar upgrade to my quotation to combine with switchboard upgrades ect .
