B2W Software

We are long-term users of the B2W system. We believe it is the best choice for paving contractors. It is easy to learn and continues to offer even deeper ability as estimating prowess grows. The system allows us to update quotes that were given in the past and to stay on top of our costs as changes occur, so our data is up to date and accurate. Know your costs and you can make money!

Viewpoint, a Trimble company

ProContractor is a great fit if you are looking to make the jump to an ERP (accounting) system that offers a higher level of complexity and controls than what QuickBooks or Xero have to offer. However, some of those increased features of accounting controls, vendor compliance management, project contracting and documentation, come at the cost of lost integrations. ProContractor is completely siloed and does not openly communicate with other platforms (project management, bank accounts, etc).

Pros

B2W Software

  • Allows management to update costs for each individual item, equipment, labor, PR taxes, benefits, materials, etc.
  • Allows management to see how aggressive estimators have built an estimate to evaluate risk.
  • Allows monthly changes in fuel prices and liquid asphalt to quickly update the system for all.
  • Allows management to override margins for overhead and profit to match backlog and need for work versus budget.

Cons

B2W Software

  • We request changes to the software as issues crop up and the B2W process changes as needed.
  • A time-out function should be added to knock dormant users offline and allow other users access to the limited number of licenses the company owns.

  • More of a project management "vibe".
  • Less spreadsheet and complex processes to do things.

      Viewpoint, a Trimble company

      ProContractor support has gone through good times and bad times. However, now that ViewPoint is owned by Trimble the support has been great and stable. Support is good to respond on average urgency tickets. The only complaint is that for urgent tickets communication can be slow even though the support team is working on the issue.

      Viewpoint, a Trimble company

      Procore beats Viewpoint hands down but can integrate well with Viewpoint Vista accounting software. I think that if the Viewpoint software was more flexible if they were more interested in patches, updates, and hearing customer feedback in the way the Procore does, that they would actually have the opportunity to corner the market.
