Everything in one central place

Pros

As a mid-sized contractor, we run a lot of fixed price contracts so we have to watch our costs and margins very closely. 4castplus has given us amazing visibility into everything that’s going on all the time. It’s all real-time too which is a great plus; and the fact that it’s all on one centralised platform with great reporting is an astounding improvement on the mess of spreadsheets we used to use. We also like the fact that we can run all our subcontracts along with our self-performed in the same system, which is a huge help for contractors like us.

Cons

We run a lot of mid-sized projects, so there is some functionality in 4castplus designed for mega projects that we can’t take advantage of (like some of the project controls and forecasting), but everything else is excellent.

Pros

Cons

-Procurement workflow is robust but complex. -Flexible, however some business workflows must follow the software's assumption of process. -User licence tiers are somewhat confusing and overlap slightly and could benefit from some simplification. -multiple industries served can introduce complexity to workflows.

Alberta based company

Would highly recommend this product as a Procurement tool

Reporting features are excellent. I would highly recommend 4castplus.

Pros

I use 4castplus strictly as a Procurement tool. It is very easy to use and very flexible. I do not require any of the PM features so it is nice I can use only what is required in 4castplus. Support team is responsive and I have been able to get help when I need it.

Cons

I only use it for Procurement and the project management features are of no use to me as I do not need to track project related data.
