Uptick vs FireMate

Uptick charges a simple monthly fee based on the number of technicians and office staff using the system. Your customers and subcontractors gets access for free.
FireMate uses a simple pricing model that charges a single fee per month based on the number of users in the system.
Fire industry specific
Built for the needs of the Australian, New Zealand and UK fire protection industry.
Customer data encrypted (at rest and in transit), secure protocols used, and data protection policies in place.
The FireMate desktop software connects directly to their database, rather than a modern approach where data is secured through an API. This leaves your confidential customer data vulnerable to exposure or theft.
Interactive PDFs and unlimited photos
Customer reporting (programme maintenance reports, service reports, and defect quotes) can contain an unlimited number of photos, and PDFs are interactive allowing customers to click to see full size photos from their PDF.
FireMate cannot handle large quantities of photos, does not automatically flow photos from test to quote, and does not produce interactive PDFs.
Email integration
Integrate with your email provider (Outlook, Gmail, etc) to capture and inbound and outbound emails against a site, customer, or task.
Realtime syncing and work offline
Automatically sync changes from the technician to the office, and vice versa, without manual intervention and work in fully offline mode in basements or rural areas without coverage.
FireMate requires technicians to manually "sync" to push changes live, and does not allow technicians to work offline for long periods.
Fully in-the-cloud
Modern desktop software is exclusively delivered through your browser allowing high security and instant updates.
To use FireMate on your desktop you must install software and update it every time you open the program.

FireMate does not have a subcontractor portal: subcontractors must pay a license fee and install an app.
Customer portal

Floor plans

Firemate does not have floorplans or geospatial asset registers.

Custom data capture and forms

FireMate limits you to 6 custom fields on an asset, and does not have a form builder for custom forms for technicians or office staff.
