BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

BuildingConnected is a great tool for construction managers and general contractors working over a wide area that rely on collecting multiple bids. BuildingConnected does a great job at presenting new contractors that may fit the bill for who you need to look at and price a job. Its simple interface allows you to easily see who the main point of contact is at a company, and place comments for your team to review after corresponding with these companies.

CMiC Construction Platform

Whether it's in the field, or in the office, the CMiC Construction Platform is well suited for daily project management of construction projects. From a project inception, to project closeout, the tools and modules available will help keep your project running smoothly. All aspects of the construction process can be tracked and accessed for real time information. CMiC is a very robust program and we haven't explored all of the modules that are available to us at this point

Pros

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

  • Helps keep track of multiple jobs at once
  • Helps sort your bid invites into won/lost/pending/archived etc.
  • It is a central location where general contractors can put all their updated files and addendum
  • Lets you see which contractors are bidding the same job so you can coordinate your estimating

CMiC Construction Platform

  • It integrates many aspects of project management into one location.
  • It produces easy to understand reports that incorporate financial aspects of the project so that costs and profit can be calculated in real-time rather than as a lagging indicator.
  • Document management is housed within the project, reducing the number of locations and the need for additional cloud storage to maintain project documentation.
  • CMiC customer assistance is prompt and helpful.

Cons

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

  • There was a previous glitch where bid forms have been updated by subcontractors that have accessed a former version are not able to access the updated/new bid form.
  • I would like to see the ability for BuildingConnected to automatically send a bid reminder to bidders at a set amount of time prior to the bid date.
Melanie Dodson | TrustRadius Reviewer

CMiC Construction Platform

  • Entering a code of the vendor instead of the company name while recording an invoice takes time and seems counter intuitive
  • Editing an invoice created through Image Management on the AP side is limited to description and address field. When changing the rest (invoice# or a date or an amount) - the whole trace of who entered/submitted/approved disappears. The way it works now is: deleting an invoice from the batch, locating it through Registry/invoice search, unsubmitting it, making changes, submitting, adding back to batch - time consuming
  • In Multiple distribution pop up window, when entering a new invoice, I'd make the field "Company" to be autofilled once "Job" is entered. It takes time to memorize what job number belongs to what company.
  • There is only web version available and it is limited compare to a desktop client. For instance I can only make one change at a time and save it. Multiple changes don't get saved in one click

They are constantly reaching out to see if there is anything they can teach us. It can be a bit aggravating when it is constant, but I know that they have our best interest at heart. They also had all of us do multiple Skype meetings with a support rep to make sure we understood the software.

They are quick to respond to tickets. Once problems are identified, it takes too long for solutions to be implemented unless the mission is critical. It seems that issues on the enterprise side get all the attention because they have to deal with money but solutions for the Field and Document management side are slow to come.This past Thursday we noticed a flurry of tickets being closed with incomplete answers or non-answer answers like the techs were being pressured to reduce the number of open tickets

Lots of confusion between sales and implementation regarding what was included and not included...the security encountered a "bug" and made it extremely difficult to set up roles and individual responsibilities

Alternatives Considered

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

Have used BlueBook Construction, which has a smooth, quick search for local contractors. Still, they don't allow us the client project creation. I even had issues with them displaying proper project descriptions based upon was receiving inadequate and or erroneous bid proposals, and the engagement manager was not flexible in resolving the problem!
Marcel Cicort | TrustRadius Reviewer

CMiC Construction Platform

It has been many years since we evaluated something else. Feature wise, CMiC [Construction Platform] is robust. Smaller user base, but is a solid platform. As mentioned, their testing on new releases could be greatly improved upon. It doesn't feel as polished as some more widely used system.

Return on Investment

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

  • Allows our company to accurately estimate the cost of a project.
  • Helps us to reach out to qualified subcontractors based on past experience and history with our company.
  • Contains bid leveling capabilities to ensure that all proposals cover a full scope of work.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

CMiC Construction Platform

  • Better project visibility, surely. I can step into a former project and see how well/poorly it was run.
  • Forecasting underway - nearly complete with year 2.
  • Cost status tracking - this has been valuable, especially when figuring out how much of a liquid budget is left over.
