Great Document Control Program

Pros

We use this for all of our accounting needs and services. Our company relies on this program more that Vista knows. It's the underrated program that keeps our train moving forward.

Cons

At times this can be a little buggy and opening certain modules can take a bit. Some features are intuitive where as other they aren't.

Viewpoint software use

Pros

Easy to navigate around the software. Data Entry is easy to use. The import module gets the data into the forms faster than data entry.

Cons

Issues reported to be cleared up quicker would be of great help. Software suggestions to improve the product faster in implementing.

Efficient for skilled users.

Once you learn how to use it, it is great software. The program works efficiently, and though there have been bugs, they get them fixed in a timely manner.

Pros

Quick sort and navigation through the information. Good function for maintaining equipment, managing parts, and tracking maintenance history. Great integration with Excel through MS Query.

Cons

Not good for planning and scheduling equipment maintenance tasks. The function is there, but it is not integrated with the equipment management module.

Great Construction Software

Great Software, it you want to customize it they can do it or have a third party vendor that can do it.

Pros

Extensive Import Module - Saves tons of data entry time
Allow tons of 3rd party vendors to create great supplemental products
Great customization so it can be set up to what is important to your company

Cons

I wish every form had a grid tab view available
In Material Sales, I wish you could enter multiple products on 1 ticket

In with Vista, out with the old

Pros

Vista by Viewpoint is so much more user friendly that Timberline. We are able to integrate with Procore for seamless transfer of data between the programs

Cons

It's a brand new accounting and project management software so there is a learning curve and will take a while to get up to speed

Better Value Than the Competition

Pros

Importing & exporting works better than in other products and the customizability of the software is appealing

Cons

Character limits and margins are not easily changed and the modules don't do a good job of sharing information between them

As user unfriendly as it gets.

Pros

There seem to be cool things this software is capable of doing, but it's so user unfriendly that it's impossible to access.

Cons

I don't know where to start. I have never experienced a software with so many bugs. It constantly has to be restarted because it crashes if there is too much information inputted in one go. Importing is nearly impossible and there doesn't appear to be anyone who can help. When you call they tell you "that's just how it works."
I wish this frustration on no one.

Complete package!!!

Pros

Vista by Viewpoint is very helpful to us for it has a lot of functionalities that saves our time. We were able to customized field if we want, depending on our need...very useful indeed.

Cons

Well, at first I admit that it gets a little it harder for me to become familiarize with Vista.. But as I continue using it, I learned its different modules and uses.

Good for a broad range of companies

Pros

They have modules for most aspects of any construction business. There are tools to allow adding custom fields, validations, lookups, and even complete custom tables for those who want to go beyond the canned software. We built an extensive safety program on their custom tables. Being a standard SQL database has allowed us to integrate with other software as well.

Cons

They are playing catch-up on the mobile side. They've got several components they are working to get integrated into the back end that should provide the needed mobile access.

Vista has changed the way we do business

Great company to do business with. They have been with us every step of the way from implementation to upgrades.

Pros

From a small construction company getting by with Excel spreadsheets for everything we did to a fully functioning, paperless enterprise. Viewpoint has brought our company into the future,

Cons

There are almost too many options with the program. Go into the reports menu and it's like going down a rabbit hole.

Viewpoint is as good or as bad as you make it

Great software for programers

Pros

Viewpoint allows you to customize the user experience as much as you want. Things like custom fields, triggers causing updates to tables and custom look ups allow you to customize it.

Cons

Not a friendly user interface, looks like it was made in Windows 98. The tables between SM and JC on the back end are confusing if working in SQL

So easy to learn

Pros

This program was easy to learn and flows seamlessly once it's set up. I have been able to cut my process time by a third since switching to this software. When I have questions I can usually find the answer to a problem in the Viewpoint Knowledge Base under the Help menu.

Cons

Some updates change different modules so occasionally I'll have to adjust to a new way of entering information or retrieving information.

All encompassing system

Pros

All aspects of Business functions from AP to Project Management are within one system and integrated together. Very powerful system.

Cons

Cumbersome to set up and expensive when having to use the product team to assist in the setup. Knowledge base doesn't have enough Canadian content when looking for specifics.

Vista Payroll

Pros

I like that you can easily keep track of everything by simply clicking on the different tabs. The deduction management feature is a very worth it.

Cons

I hate it that I can not fully integrate it with the Kenyan government systems. It would be great if they made it more global friendly.

Vista, Field Time Console Product Review

Pros

The best thing about Vista is the "one-stop-shop" vision they have been striving for. Everything Accounting (AP, AR, Cash Management, GL, Job Billing, Payroll), Document Management (RFIs, Submittals, Purchase Orders, Subcontracts, etc.), Project Management (PM, Job Cost, Service Management, etc.) including a host of other options including Equipment Management, Inventory management, a Business Analytics & reporting feature. It is also highly customizable.

Cons

The only downside I would say is that some of the training for customization is considered billable or is outsourced to a third-party developer / partner

Payroll Module

My only disappointment is it would be nice to be able to call support and get a resolution immediately instead of creating a case and waiting for a recall. The knowledge base system is good, but sometimes when you put in a topic it will show over 100 results related to your request and who has time to review that many articles to find an answer.

Pros

The ease of making corrections to payroll. The ability to view from the grid and sort information quickly.

Cons

There are a lot of boxes within the setup phase that you need to be sure to mark in order for the action to be performed correctly. It is easy to miss sometimes marking them all.

Construction Engineer Using Viewpoint Regularly

Pros

After getting familiar with the software it is user friendly and great for the construction industry. The reports that can be run are professional.

Cons

It can take a few times to get familiar with the quirks of each module but after you are familiar it is user friendly.

Viewpoint is a great tool for Construction Companies

Pros

The availability of reports. To see data input in various ways to help benefit the company. Clearview is an extremely useful tool to search for frequently encountered problems/error messages. I resolve so many issues by referring to Clearview.

Cons

Time waiting on a call back from Customer Support. It generally takes 4-5 days to get a response. Most times it is for a non-critical issue, but would like to be able to move on from the problem more quickly. Especially if not found in Clearview.
