CMiC xProjects Software


 

xProjects by CMiC systems is a flexible, powerful Project Management solution that was created specifically for use in the construction industry to meet the needs of all members of a project's team, including project owners, general contractors, and other important stakeholders. By removing the centralized database, xProjects creates the flexibility for stakeholders to designate some data as private, and other data to be shared as public within the ecosystem. This also helps stakeholders feel secure in the ownership of their data.

Real-time integration is supported by XML, ensuring that there is no loss of information or the need for any type of re-entry. By allowing stakeholders to communicate with each other in real-time, CMiC xProjects helps maintain a conversation centered around the project, and provides the most up-to-date tools for organizing documents and focusing the project.

For general contractors, xProjects is a great way to dramatically reduce the amount of data entry into the project owner's system needed per job, granting each contractor more time to focus on the specifications of the job. xProjects also grants each general contractor the ability to specify to the owner of the project which applications of the system are necessary, and which ones aren't, focusing the system to accurately meet the needs of each job.

With xProjects, project owners have access to a lighter version of the full project-management system, giving them just the tools and features they need. For teams seeking an adaptable, robust solution for construction project management, we recommend xProjects as a dependable solution.

It has taken a while to get use to the software. It is a powerful took once you figure out how to use it.

Pros

The RFI, Submittal, and Meeting Minutes are great tools to use.

Cons

It has so many capabilities and it takes time to learn them.

Advice to Others

You would need a team from your company that is strictly devoted in figuring out how to use the software and how it ties in with construction.

CMiC is a really powerful tool. The product itself is really good. The data flows between all different modules without any problem. It is great to be able to run the pay for a week than being able to track our cost in real-time. CMiC also provides us a way to implement different standards in the company. Instead of having multiple ways of doing things, we now have "THE" way. CMiC does everything. It will give any construction company a clear advantage over the competitor if enough time and resources are spent to make it fits the need of the company.

Advice to Others

Enough time and resources must be spent on the implementation/management of the system to work 100%. If you do so, it is great.

The software is user friendly and very easy to configure and use. The interface is very intuitive considering the features available.The support is outstanding, from the 24 hour instant chat support to the online videos, manuals, and walk troughs. Answers are seconds away, any time you need them.

Pros

The ease of configuration and the abundance of documentation.

Cons

A few lingering bugs that support is still addressing.

Advice to Others

Get it!!! Definitely take the time to run through the courses in Next Gear University, and take advantage of the online tech support.

I haven't completed the full training as of yet, but the training that I have received has been great! I look forward to going live, having more complete and accurate reports. BUT, also remember that what you put into the system is what generates results too.

Pros

Not as difficult to learn as JD Edwards. CMiC is better then JD Edwards and Sage/Timberline by far.

Cons

I don't have any Cons yet because the things I did find are fixable. That will all be iron out and changed to our liking. Example: someone can key an invoice and go over the commitment "without" the system stopping you or red flagging you.

Advice to Others

I don't have advice but I would highly recommend this software program.

Be patient when you are first learning how it works and buy the complete package, I think that is important.

We as an organization are still building out and getting ready to deploy phase 1 of the software for the project management side of our business in the next few months.

Pros

Web based app running on standard Oracle database back end. Ability down the road to open it up to outside contractors also.

Cons

Environment required set up of at least 8 servers so far with more to come as we get ready for the load balances and possible dmz for outside access.

Advice to Others

Keep working with support on their recommended configurations.

I am using CMiC in a construction project manager role. I like that the system stacks submittals and RFIs and is easy
to enter this information and track the status. I am also using CMiC to track PCIs and write change orders. I like that
the costs can be entered as received from subcontractors, and the subcontractor costs as well as the owner costs can
both be tracked within a single process. I don't need to track subcontractor changes separate from owner changes
anymore.

We just started using the software a year ago and it is a continuous learning experience. There are so many options/opportunities for us to streamline our business. We have just begun to touch the surface of everything CMiC has to offer. I believe CMiC has already made our team more efficient in so many areas...i.e.; time management, communication, paperless and much more.

Pros

The software's ease of use is great.

Cons

PDF documents, once they are attached you have to download them to share with others. At this time we don't use collaborator or IO email.

Advice to Others

Utilize the test environment - it will come in handy.

We use CMIC for subcontract/vendor tracking on multiple levels, the more we use it the more we learn of additional information that can be input and tracked.

Pros

The ability to easily access information creates efficiency in the day-to-day. There is an ease of looking at subcontractor/vendor information.

Cons

At some points entries need to be made on multiple screens.

CMiC is a solid solution with abundant features and capabilities. We have only "unlocked" about 10% of the tool, so I hope we keep growing and learning the CMiC solution. I wish our company used more of the program - there are so many helpful tools. The CMiC team has been a pleasure, overall, to work with. We look forward to growing with CMiC in the future.

Pros

People that work at CMiC, overall, are all awesome. The Representative in sales and support are (2) especially solid individuals that come to mind. The ECM Plug-In is great! That tool alone is worth CMiC. Support staff is usually very responsive when issues arise. TONS of features and capabilities! I like that CMiC has updates often - makes you feel comfortable that they're continually trying to support their clients and improve their product.

Cons

It's hard when I am in (2) hour different time zone - my documents all have EST times on them and CMiC shuts down (2) hours before I do - makes it hard for support problems at the end of the day.

Advice to Others

Make sure your whole company is on board so you can unlock the robust features of the product and use it to its full extent. Invest lots of time into the training and try to get your complete team to attend. Be prepared for a learning curve for your team, your consultants, clients, and subcontractors. Thank you for your patience and willingness to work with The Russell Corporation. Your efforts have kept us a customer. We look forward to the continued relationship as we grow into the future.

Training was thorough and assisted me in getting my project setup and even followed up with me after I was using the program for several months. Initial learning curve is a little steep, but using the program daily helps, just like learning a foreign language -- usage creates more ease with the program. I used it mainly for communication with all of the project players and as a repository for all project documents.

Pros

It's reliability and unlimited storage capacity.

Cons

No punch list template, and in the beginning setup is a little difficult -- could be more user-friendly.

Advice to Others

Pay for extensive training upfront.
