ComputerEase Construction Software


 

ComputerEase was founded in 1983. Since then, the vendor has built a large customer base of over 6,000 contractors. It offers a fully integrated construction management suite with accounting, project management and service management applications.

ComputerEase is fully featured with plenty of construction-specific accounting and project management features. For example, it offers job costing, materials management, equipment tracking and prevailing wage reports in their accounting system.

The project management application has punch list, LEED tracking, document control and equipment and resource management capabilities.

ComputerEase recently released a mobile system for tablet devices called FieldEase. This allows contractors to automate many field processes that previously had to be tracked using pen and paper.

ComputerEase can be used by nearly any type of contractor from, earthwork to mechanical to plumbing. It is suitable for midsized companies doing between $1 and $100 million in annual revenue.

This software would be complete if it contained the HRIS component.

Pros

Job set up, tracking, tax reports, AP & AR systems ease of use, GL accounting system, contract/subcontract/p.o. templates and ease of payroll.

Cons

Lacking the HRIS component - Had to purchase a separate HRIS (Human Resource Information System) through BambooHR that our employees could log into to track their time off, for benefit enrollment and tracking and for supervisors/foreman to perform performance evaluations and post job openings.

We have been on this system for about 7 years or more now and are VERY happy with it.

Pros

This is TRULY a fully integrated product that combines Project Management, Submittals, Accounting and Change Orders. Very user friendly with a very well thought out Graphical User Interface. My wife and I are both Engineers with my wife being a Master Degreed Software Engineer. We studied many products and settled on Computerease. We are extremely happy with our decision and I believe the product is very scaleable and will meet all of our demands as our company grows.

Cons

Scheduling tool is weak. We just use MS Project instead. The product does offer a scheduling module but it is not robust. Also, certain fields are limited to 10 characters which is very cumbersome when naming job names and customer names.

Pros

The ease of the process from purchasing to setup to use. This software offers a solution to having all your information in one place. From HR to Accounting this is the easiest way to keep track of your business. The variety of reports allows you to produce information to meet preferred formats for coworkers. Customer support responds in a timely, courteous fashion and always works with you to resolve any issues or suggestions to assist your company to be the best it can be. The continual updates to the software insure that your information remains current for the industry to allow you to focus on growing your business. Call and talk to someone about how ComputerEase can make things simple for you, you will not be disappointed.

Cons

The only thing I can say is a "con" to this software was getting the Project Managers to stop using multiple programs and start using ComputerEase. Once they saw how easy it was to use and the information that was available to them, they were on board with the software.

It's format is still DOS - like in the late 80's before we all switched to the windows format. All this software did was remove the use of the F1-10 keys and replace it with a double click. It shuts our printer down and locks it into an internal loop at which point we have to turn off the computer and the printer, wait - repower everything and try again. Ever so often it decides to print the payroll checks backwards and other inconvient things like that. I suppose it is better than no software and is also cheaper than the better written programs for this industry. I guess you get what you pay for.

We’re sorry you’ve been experiencing problems, Margaret. As for the problems you’ve been experiencing, they certainly sound unique. It appears to be a problem with the printer rather than your software. Either way, we are always eager to help in any way we can. Let’s get in touch and see if we can figure out what’s causing that issue.

We have to disagree with the assessment that our system is still in DOS format. We haven’t used anything close to DOS in decades. In fact, in the last couple of years we released a complete overhaul of our system’s user interface, adding custom workflow functionality with a lean, modern design. If you’d like, we can get show you some of the newer features. Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do for you.

So far the software seems to do the job. Trainer is good, need more training time and it should be included

Pros

Like that it is integrated with field service

Cons

Do not include enough training time and you have to pay for additional time, for the price it should be included, a least a significant portion

Advice to Others

Get more training time and tree to negotiate a smaller fee

This product is being used by 2 companies we acquired. It is great at linking equipment and labor into job costs using simple tools like a dispatch board to assign resources.
Multiple labor rates can be sued for wage rated projects or negotiated T&M rate schedules .
Job costing can track each project for profitability.
The programming team is very responsive to request for customization especially reporting and user interfaces.

Pros

Job costing

integrated imaging storage for work acceptance forms, inventory receivers, Change orders

Cons

Reporting can be slow as history and users are added

Good ERP software for those smaller construction companies looking to get off of Quickbooks or other accounting packages. Many good features out of the box, including scheduling, field time reporting, etc.

Pros

Good fit for smaller to midsized construction company. Many upgraded features for the price.

Cons

FoxPro Database, not good for multi-entity

Thank you for your comments, Joe, but we feel the need to correct you: we do not, nor have we ever, used a FoxPro database. We’re not sure where you got that information, and in fact we weren’t able to find your company in our database of customers and users. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us!

I have been in the construction field for over 20 years and this is by far the best software I have used.

Pros

Ease! Also the reporting ability is so robust!
My WIP takes me 2 hours at the most! (8mil in revenue.)

Cons

I don't believe there is any!

Advice to Others

Talk to another same liked company...

My ComputerEase is hosted in the Cloud by CSS (Common Sense Solutions). They are the distributor / reseller and trainers. The transition from Sage50 to ComputerEase was so easy with their instructions. Changes with software or hardware is NEVER easy and causes so much stress for me. They trained me and walked me through every step. The trainer KNOWS accounting, job costing and she knows the software. Most software trainers only know the software!!

The only thing I'm not real thrilled with is the Cloud system. I get knocked off with a lost connection at least twice a day. When I am in the middle of something, it is not fun. When I have had to call support they open a ticket right away, but sometimes there is not a fix or solution for 24 hours.

Recommendations

Watch the demo. Ask questions. Be informed. The best thing I did was talk to a couple of local companies that have used ComputerEase for 10-20 years. Come to find out, one of our best customers uses ComputerEase and that is all they have ever used. Stable for sure.

ComputerEase had the unique blend of functionality at a great price. We are a growing construction company who quickly outgrew QuickBooks so we needed to move to a software made for construction. We researched a number of packages but ultimately selected ComputerEase for their integration with estimating and fully integrated modules. We were also very pleased with the price and ease of implementation. The implementation specialist was very helpful and we implemented on our schedule and at the agreed budget.

Likes Least

I wish it was browser based, we deploy with a terminal server.

Recommendations

Do your homework and make sure the product functions like your business processes since flexibility is not as robust as the more expensive options, the positive is the ease of implementation.
