Great tool for business management, needs some tweaks on the reporting to tell the truth.

Continue listening to the customer feed back, I think the program is great overall.

Pros

The ability to stay on top of daily labor and equipment. Exporting from Estimate to Track is simple and quick. Change order Tracking seems to work well.
The program is an excellent tool to assist management.

Cons

Slow to change screens at times. We use the cost detail report most often, but it does not tell the whole story. We use the prorated action, but not all tracking accounts should be prorated, so I have had PM's think they are doing well because they are under the estimated unit cost, but the tracked unit should only be prorated to 100%. The report needs the ability to choose individual tracking accounts to prorate to 100% on some and fully prorate others.
Overall it is a great tool. We struggle with adjusting actual costs on the T&M materials. The ability to manually enter a rev and cost on the field log and have it apply a % markup may be a better option.

Save time and money!

Pros

Great way to track daily activity on the job. This software allows us to track our quantities so that we don't miss out on getting paid for items that normally would have been lost in the shuffle. Also- this software lets us print trucking and material reports so that we can verify invoices when they come in with ease. We used to have to dig thru files to verify all of the trucking and material invoices and now all of that info and more is recorded daily by the foremen and B2W allows us to customize reports and view this information easily. We save time and money. We regularly catch items from trucking and material invoices that we are billed for incorrectly and notify the suppliers. Great customer service and technical support.

Cons

We have used the status reports and thought jobs were performing well and it turned out that they were not. Between the database having some incorrect numbers and the foremen putting some quantities in the wrong column it created a bad representation of the job. You must make sure the foremen understand it and keep a handle on where the costs are pulling from.

Track Review

Pros

The capability to track projects in real time. Being able to get information out to the formans in the field in a quick manner. Using track for employee time cards ans the capability for the employees to have a secure login to be able to see their time and hours and sign off on them.

Cons

Some of the steps for creating a field log is redundant. I wish there was a way to assign an employee to different labor types with out having to go in to choose the same employee multiple times.

B2W Track Software - Review

Pros

It is an extremely user friendly program. Those with Limited Computer Skills are able to, with little guidance, navigate and utilize the program efficiently.

Cons

One thing that comes to mind is that in order to get Equipment Set up there's 2 steps. First, in one area, you enter in the equipment. Once there you then have to go to Equipment Rate Class section to enter the unit costs. This process would be simpler if there was a "One Stop Shop" where you can enter the equipment and on the same screen, add the unit costs.

Complicated data collection, disappointed in the reporting, disappointed that ONE does not really mean one software platform - it means two.

Pros

We like the concept - one platform for estimating, scheduling, forms, timesheet data. We like the SQL database.

Cons

We have been forced to turn to Power BI and in-house developed reporting in order to support Accounting review and Production reporting the way we need it. We have to manually maintain two lists of equipment, rates, etc - one in Estimate and one in Track. B2W leapfrogged HCSS with their software model. They are now themselves at risk of being leapfrogged by another system that is 100% SAAS with a no contract, per user subscription model.

Difficult set up and maintenance

Not enough training available with cost of system.

Pros

Ability to monitor projects, keep track of equipment use, labor hours for payroll and tracking pay items / production accounts.

Cons

Need a full time IT person to train and update. Integration of accounts from Estimate into Track need to be addressed with initial training to alleviate hours of trial and error.

B2W Track Review

Pros

The software is user-friendly and the support you receive is first-class.

Cons

The inability to apply security at the job level. We have security locked down by job in Viewpoint and would like the same capability in B2W.
