Pros/Cons
  • Pros

  • It is capable of doing a large variety of things and helps with keeping all the jobs straight.
  • The integration with Planswift works awesome. Phone support is always great too.
  • Cons

  • Some of the accounting package link-up can be frustrating and we lost a function recently which was not particularly helpful for us and was driven by other contractors needs who use the software.
  • They are very poor and make it hard to deal with large data sets. Their filters are missing exact matches between items in the same category.
  • Pros

  • The features are useful and helpful to the bottom line. I can track the health of my project much easier and it helps add structure to our company organization.
  • We send out the weekly reports (updates) on all of our jobs on Tuesdays. Clients love this interaction and ability to stay informed.
  • Cons

  • We updated our cost codes this year and making those changes on the back end and then the front end was difficult to do. Some setting changes are also hard to find in the administrator.
  • This is exacerbated by weak FAQs/video tutorials and lack of proactive hints/suggestions as to how to get the most out of the software.
