    Pros

    The system allows for a wide range of data entry and custom reporting that aligns with the requirements of an engineering firm.
    Customer service is by far the best I have dealt with for a software company.
    New features are regularly being integrated into the system based on the needs and wants of the customer base.

    Cons

    Regular addition of new features can lead to momentary bugs in the system.
    Additional learning resources could be added or updated more frequently to limit the amount of correspondence with Customer Service.

    Easy to do expediting reports and to include all possible details needed

    Cons

    As much as I have used this system, there has been nothing wrong with this program. I have heard form my coworkers that sometimes there is a coding issue but I am not sure if this is something else

    4castplus is a very comprehensive and impressive piece of software, regularly integrating new features and enhancements to existing features. Product management team is responsive and open to suggestions - 4castplus is on track to be a world-class leader in project management solutions.

    Pros

    -comprehensive solution, capable of moving a project from opportunity to closeout.
    -field data entry exposed to most aspects of the project, reducing PM/Admin involvement in routine project management tasks.
    -multiple industries served integrates many and varied views on project management and multiple paths to the same outcome.

    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.

    Pros

    The team at 4castplus is extremely responsive and clearly dedicated to solid partnerships with their clients. This is a refreshing change since my past experience with software vendors hasn’t been great. Their software is fast, easy-to-use and you can see they are committed to top quality in every module. This is a very well built system that I’d highly recommend.

    Cons

    Any cons I might have are small tweaks that are pretty minor. And the 4castplus team has been very responsive about implementing my suggestions in their regular releases, so those cons don’t usually last long.

    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.

    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.

    The company has great support staff. Implementation was smooth and training post go-live was very thorough for what we are utilizing the software for.

    Pros

    The UI is intuitive and easy to use for our field staff. You can access the tool anywhere, even offline. Reporting functions are great, especially for the diversity of divisions we work with.

    Cons

    4castplus has a TON of features and we do not use all of them due to the nature of our business. You would need to complete the training in its entirety to utilize the whole system.

    4castplus' team is excellent. Support (when needed) has been great, no complaints about this product.

    Pros

    Very powerful tool that has been locally developed here in Alberta. Great user interface which makes recording your billable time incredibly easy.

    Cons

    Very robust solution and I only use it to record billable time. A little overkill for what I need but you can't beat the price.
