Trade Trak vs AroFlo

An alternative to AroFlo

Let's see how they compare...

Overview

Trade Trak and AroFlo are both web-based trade management apps. AroFlo offers two different plans with different prices and levels of access, which are AroFlo Go and AroFlo. For this comparison, we have decided to test AroFlo, which gives the largest level of access, with the option of add-ons.

AroFlo's main point of competition is their Client Portal, which allows customers to make payments in their own time. Trade Trak, however, offers the addition of subcontractors to your team at no extra cost, the SWMS template builder, and full use of documents and files, including annotations.
