The fact that it will produce multiple forms for me just by logging in pay items quantities and estimates.

Likes Least

Nothing specific so far. I'm still getting the hang of some things. Will hopefully learn some short cuts or tips to organize some items.

Recommendations

It is user-friendly and saves a lot of time in the long run. Makes things very consistent throughout our company.

I like the ease of use and the ability to establish links to other documentation. Most requested changes were easily incorporated. I like that it allows for electronic signatures.

Likes Least

The only issue was that once an approval was obtained and changes were made, the system would not re-establish a position for new signatures. However, there was a workaround created.

Recommendations

Don't be afraid to ask if it is possible to make a change to the system. The PM Vitals team were most always able to accommodate the changes requested.

As there is no set format format for data input, finding a document can be somewhat chaotic.

Ensure this program meets your needs. It's very finicky!

I just started using PM Vitals in January 2015, I have found that it is very user-friendly in learning how to process documentation. It seems when we make a request to the Vendor for help with something, they seem to respond quickly in getting the question answered.

Likes Least

I have not found anything that I do not like about the product.

Recommendations

It is a true review and evaluation of the software when you have the daily users of the software evaluate it, in comparison to someone that does not use the product daily.

I loved most the total adaptability of this product to the most complex of environments as applied at any point in a process and at any point of time - not just at the start of a project or process. This product leverages the best of what is already in place without any extraordinary, unexpected expenditures. Additionally, the product is simple to understand and learn where we were able to use less skilled and costly resources, dramatically reducing processing costs.

Likes Least

I believe the product is understated. That is, it is very difficult to understand the value of this product until you have implemented it yourself and are knee deep in the application. Only then do you say to yourself, "this is one powerful tool ... thank God we took the risk to use this application. Our mission would have required "total muscle" to force our way through the data." This is a very difficult product to communicate upfront in a convincing way. The vendor has not found an adequate way to fully communicate the product value and its non-risk implementation in such a way that the decision makers find it easy to say "yes" to using it.

Recommendations

Try it and experience the product! There is truth in every sense of the common expression, "There is nothing to lose and everything to gain." The ultimate deliverable of this product is a more positive financial outcome for your organization or project than if you had not used it. It might even have a positive impact on leadership's compensation. Slam Dunk!

Customer Service is friendly, professional, and timely. Importing Excel Exports into the database for quick entry. Linking documents together, integrating the work flow. The search capability is AMAZING. You can find anything in so many different ways.

Speed is dependent on WIFI, but the trade off of accessibility anywhere is worth it. Some limitations on changing setup, needing administrator.

Recommendations

The software offers a complete library of standard pay items which makes it very easy to create your cost estimates. The only thing I don't like is that I can only select multiple items if they are within my search window, I wish it would save your selections and thus be able to add everything at once.

The setup and use of this software was very intuitive. No real learning curve, had a cost estimate up and running in no time.

The ability to break up jobs into multiple areas and cost types was very handy. Some of the loss of user control versus MS Excel hampered the use of this program as a sole means of cost estimating.

In future the controls for adding, deleting and sizing rows and columns needs a bit of added flexibility. Also the ability to perform rounding rules, adding formulas, and allow text formatting to data cells would help greatly.

Overall this software works well and quickly with a very intuitive UI.

I like that I can produce multiple documents with the information I enter that is very pertinent to my job. It saves time in the long run and helps makes things very consistent within our company. I haven't been using the software very long, but I'm not sure if I can get a printout of all the streets and quantities in the "breakout items" viewport. This is something I've always used in the past when preparing my projects. Still in the beginning stages of learning the software. Will hopefully learn further benefits and short cuts to the program as time goes on. So far, I'm impressed with it though.

I like the all projects will now be standardized using the same pay item and past costs will be available.

The check boxes do not carry through from page to page when looking up pay items. Not a seamless method to export for use in a CAD file. The Local Agency, Location, and Description does not auto fill. It does not include the correct CSI specification reference.
