Corecon Software


 

Corecon is a construction software suite that offers organizations a complete web-based solution for estimating, project management, job costing and scheduling. Corecon Technologies' cutting-edge solution includes executive dashboards which offer complete visibility into every facet of the project, and construction firms can easily automate complex tasks to work more profitably and efficiently.

Corecon is Corecon Technologies' flagship solution in their product line, all of which are connected to a centralized database, eliminating the time-consuming and often costly task of linking disparate systems. Corecon is well-positioned to grow with the company and was developed for general contractors, custom homebuilders, engineering firms and commercial or residential design/build firms. The Web-based architecture requires no installs; it's available anytime, anywhere with Internet access.

The full suite includes modules for lead tracking, bid management, contract administration, procurement, time tracking, correspondence and documentation. Particularly beneficial in the construction industry, where staff members are often away from the office, Corecon offers Corecon Mobile, a free solution which is available for use on tablets or smartphones, making critical project data more readily available to field staff and executives on the go.

Corecon recently introduced the TeamLink Portal, which provides both Corecon subscribers and outside project team members (owners, architects, engineers, vendors, subs) a secure, collaborative self-service portal to store and share project data at no extra cost. CoreconLink is also available to those looking to integrate the solution with the company's existing accounting system or Microsoft Outlook.

Corecon is a great option to review for companies seeking a collaborative, highly accessible construction software solution.

Not satisfied at all

The program does not do what the sales told it would and what we wanted from a system. When we call for tech support, we are met with rude individuals (On every occasion not just a couple) and were NOT helpful at all. We were on our own to figure out the whole system which we were told we would have support. The system is NOT user friendly and with the upgrades and bugs not worked out before implementing it - we spent alot of time and money backtracking. We have went with another program system that works the way we want it and is user friendly.

Advice to Others

No advice to others. Each has to figure out what they want and will settle for.

Vendor offers a well thought out product that helps us manage our construction projects. Menus are easy to use and intuitive. Corecon offers us the ability to set users for full functionality or limit access to specific tasks.

Likes Least

I would like the help to be a little more accessible. For instance, some sort of tool tips associated with buttons inside the menu would help us to better understand what a particular field or parameter is asking for.

Recommendations

Find software that fits your needs and don't purchase functinality that you don't need.

This system provides and All-in-one solutions for Construction. It provides leads & bidding, estimating, project management, documentation and collaboration, and financial analysis of your project health..

Likes Least

Many part of the system needs to an overhaul such as Estimating, scheduling, bidding & ITBs. Although these features are there but they are not as effective or efficient as competing systems.

Recommendations

If you are looking for a seamless transitions of your bidding/estimating to project management/collaboration/documentation and to the financials then this a pretty good solutions.

It was comprehensive. It handled 4 major projects at the same time. My subcontractors had access to just what I wanted them to.

Likes Least

It is time consuming and challenging to learn. There has to be a daily time allotment. If you don't use on a daily basis you will lose the know how.

Recommendations

If you have multiple projects it is worth while. I would definitely look at this software. The interfaces are great and the graphics are nice looking.

We tried half a dozen vendors while searching for the best one for us. This is the most comprehensive construction management software I've tried. The Request for quote system is the best (ie simple) of all we tried. Most required every trade/vender to create an account - this sends out the email with the unique link to the job files. Almost everything we wanted to be able to do, this software does.

Likes Least

Its an ugly and awkward interface - and most of all, the app is difficult to use. This was the main reason we couldn't stick with it. Its hard enough to get site staff to use an app, this one was difficult to navigate - so the guys wouldn't use it.

Recommendations

If this vendor spent some time redesigning the interface (to look more like Construction Online and the app to be more like BuilderTREND), then this program, in my opinion, would be the best thing (in this price bracket) on the market.

I have used a few CM software and Corecon has been the easiest to navigate so far.

Likes Least

Corecon comes with several templates, which is a good thing. The difficulty has come when uploading our own templates or when editing existing templates.

Recommendations

If your budget is the main constraint when buying a CM software Corecon is your best option.

Pros

The Employee time ttracking, the project setup, basic HR setup and employee information. It is straight forward to use.

Cons

Limited ability to make the software work for your particular processes. Link to Quickbooks, US based does not work particularly well with Canadian taxes. We have to correct for rounding errors manually.

We purchased Corecon for two reasons: 1) It integrated with Quickbooks, and 2) It had over 90% of the project management features we were looking for. The wealth of reporting data that we are able to get from Corecon helps us with timely & accurate billing, scheduling, workload projections, and much more. When we find a report that isn't readily available, their custom reporting tool can typically get us the info we need within 20 minutes or so of tweaking some numbers. If we hit a dead-end, their support team is timely and extremely knowledgeable about the product. Above all of that, the project management functionality is great. It takes some time to develop a system that works for your specific company, but the program allows for a good amount of customization and has really improved our efficiency in managing jobs.

Overall, this product has improved our reporting abilities, the look of our documents, our project management abilities, and our interoffice communications. Couldn't ask for much more!

Pros

Huge amount of features to improve project management capabilities, and reporting possibilities are endless.

Cons

It's a bit clunky to use at times, but it is always improving. That said, on-boarding new employees isn't always the easiest thing.

The subscription is reasonably priced and the product itself is reliable and consistently delivers. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to improve their management process.

Clean and clear viewing platform
No downtime
Accessible from any computer, tablet and mobile device
Professional reports

Cons

I have not experienced any real "cons" to the software.

Robust estimating software

Product Quality

We use the product for project management, contacts and estimating. It is very robust and we have not yet found any limitation to what we wanted the product to do. The team workers have accepted the product after a relatively short training period. The web-based delivery makes the maintenance and update very smooth.

Pros

breadth of features
accessible pricing for a mid sized construction business
Microsoft products and QuickBooks integration

Cons

because of the breadth of functionality it takes some time to assimilate, specifically for estimators new to online estimating tools
