So far so good, new the software!

I will check back in after a full 6 months with the program but I bet our estimates are going to be more robust and decrease misses in the bids.

Pros

So we just switched to doing our estimates in Pro-contractor and there are some great abilities like building assemblies for line items. This has allow us to minimize the amount of information that can possible confuse someone looking at it. We also like that everything can be tied to a SOV items easily.

Cons

This software is a lot more complex that what we typically use so in that training time is a little more intense to understand. The terms used in this software also cause a little confusion as now what we use as cost codes are refereed to as phase codes which can get confused with phases.

Capable of tracking finances in great detail.

Cost tracking. Document tracking and creation.

Pros

All tabs are linked based on job and contract number. Once your templates are uploaded, it is easy to autofill information and formalize documents.

Cons

There are many function keys that need to be used to input information. These can sometimes be difficult to remember and find within the program.

Great potential but still needs work.

This software has some great potential. It has the goal of almost complete coverage of a construction business process for day to day use, but it has some serious issues the limit this ability. I do believe these issues can be fixed, but at the moment they seem to be working on them. Additionally, it is not always as intuitive as their presentation makes it seem. People with lower level computer skills will have a tougher time getting proficient.

Pros

1. Great potential. With some bug fixes and some changes, this product could be so much more. 2. Covers (can cover) from estimating to collection of payments. 3. Very flexible estimating system. 4. Form and report flexibility 5. Document management 6. Above average costing ability

Cons

1. Cloud service is slow at peak times 2. Estimating flexibility could mean a user affects estimating catalog. 3. The mobile app was almost completely unusable until very recently. (I am still wary). 4. Technical support is sometimes unable to solve problems. 5. Some key documents are not in project document package. 6. State specific certified payroll not in the system. 7. Consultants do not follow through during training sometimes. 8. Expensive for a product that is not fully at its capability.

Timberline is Much Better

Pros

Honestly, not much. We switched over from Expedition and were promised the moon. What we actually got was a non-intuitive, non-cross module replacement that made me actually miss the old program

Cons

Where to start? It's totally disconnected...if you do something in one module it doesn't carry over to another; you have to enter the info again. There are character limits in places that can't be changed and many other non-user friendly characteristics.

Still Prefer Timberline

I use this for purchase orders and subcontracts as well as their compliance. While I like there is a report that can be run to show what is out of date I would also like a reminder email so I know weekly what is falling out of compliance. It works fine overall but I have many tweaks I could suggest.

Pros

It has many customizable modules and holds most of the information I would like it to record

Cons

modules don't talk to each other leading to having to duplicate work
