Does it work on your phone? Absolutely. Do you have to download something from an app store? No. Thrive is designed to work on your browser across all different device form factors, and without sacrificing functionality as you move from one device to another. Upload pictures, complete tasks, open reports, all on your mobile device.
Thrive is fully mobile responsive. Thrive is web-based and accessible on all mobile devices and tablets. When you get your personal Thrive account, your company will tell you where your Thrive application can be found on any internet browser where you will find your company login screen.
This is a deep question that people want a simple answer for. We can share numbers, but it goes back to our philosophy that software is not your solution. It is a tool for the right people who have a process they are wanting to improve. So, depending the amount of current waste in your process your opportunity may be great, or you might just track a bunch of data and do nothing with it. We have seen companies improve line efficiency by 40% in 3 months, but the software alone didn’t do that. We are happy to visit about the details of your process and goals during a demo to help build an ROI with you. A visit with some current Thrive users will also help you nail down your cost justification.
Thrive is installed as an on-premise (behind your firewall) solution for some companies and a software as a service (SAAS – hosted site) for other companies. Whether we host Thrive for you in the cloud, or we install it on-premise, Thrive will be identical in its features, tools, and functionality. You pick the option that is best for your operations and pricing structure. Hosting pricing will be an monthly subscription which includes technical support and forever updates and upgrades. The on-premise installation is a one-time purchase with annual maintenance for technical support and forever updates and upgrades. Please see pricing table on our Homepage to see our Thrive pricing.
No. Most companies do not use all modules, nor would we say they should. Thrive should fit into your plans within operations. So, if your priority is to better manage your maintenance program, then start with that module in Thrive. When the time comes that a safety software is priority, then leverage that area of Thrive. If you like what you are doing within your quality team and your systems are working, do not change it. Many companies will start with 2 or 3 areas of Thrive they want to implement in the first year. The goal is not to use all of Thrive, the goal is to use the parts of Thrive that makes sense for your company.
First off, we believe software alone is not going to solve your problems. Our philosophy is you need to have the right leadership in place and a process before you buy software. If you have the first two, software should help drive efficiency and provide value to drive change. Thrive does this through its ease of use in data entry, real time reporting and dashboards, escalations, and because it is easy to manage without involving IT. Some characteristics of the companies that will get the most value out of Thrive:
- Want to control their process destiny
- Own the process and change
- Value their team members
- High expectations for results, not just talk

Implementation of Thrive at your operations varies based on your particular operations needs and what portions of Thrive that you wish to implement. We have had companies get Thrive going in a matter of days and operators using Thrive the day they log into their new account. Once you decide that Thrive will provide value for your operations, we will develop a custom implementation plan with your company that will roll out Thrive with success and ease.
Check out this video where Jamie breaks down the basics on our implementation process.
