B2W Estimate

For larger-scale projects, using estimating software like B2W is perfect. The way you can break down your bid into multiple WBS levels helps organize everything in a structural way. You can see where the money is going to in certain buckets, and make adjustments accordingly to that specific line item.

Viewpoint Spectrum

Viewpoint Spectrum is well suited for accounting, job costing, project management, service department. It is less appropriate for estimating, payroll on-boarding, time collection in the field for construction jobs and document imaging for the entire company. The scenarios where Viewpoint Spectrum is not appropriate for what we are trying to accomplish, we outsource and import into our Viewpoint Spectrum software

  • The ability to create a custom info link reports enable you to create virtually any report using the data you have in Spectrum that will auto-refresh with just one click of a button.
  • They have a fantastic support network and I the few times I have had to contact support, I was directed to someone very knowledgeable that was able to find a solution.

  • It's sometimes hard to control the document imaging window. It doesn't stop when you release the cursor. Have to go to top of screen and click in one of the bars to lock it in place.
  • In AP invoice entry, you have to slow down when entering job and phase number. Doesn't keep up with the speed of the person entering.

Support has not been great since merging with Viewpoint. I've sent several letters up the chain about this. It has made me want to leave the software altogether on more than one occasion. I spend a lot of time on hold, and on numerous occasions now we've sat around for days waiting for a response only to be told the person on the phone never actually made a ticket for that, or that the online system didn't alert them of our case. We used to be able to call and get someone immediately and have the problem solved by a knowledgeable person. Now it's hit or miss and you could be on hold forever. The online training academy is nice but it's still not in-depth enough for me to not have to sit and babysit someone through a training period.

I have previously used Sage Masterbuilder, another construction industry software. This has been a number of years ago. The company I am working for already had Spectrum and have been using it for as long as it has been around when it was known as Forefront. Based on conversations I've had with the personnel that were here at the time of purchase, Spectrum clicked off all the boxes they were looking for.

Return on Investment

B2W Estimate

  • Used company-wide.
  • User-friendly.

  • We do not use Viewpoint Spectrum for estimating or project tracking. There has not been any incentive to do so. The results achieved using the methods already in place are at a level that it was deemed unnecessary to invest the time and money required to change.
  • We do not use the Human Resources module. It is not necessary for only around 45 permanent employees. The functionality of just the payroll module covers the data we want to capture electronically. The other 400 - 500 employees we have each year are non-permanent union workers that come and go and are also sufficiently recorded and tracked with the payroll module.
