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.

We have utilized the full extent of Vista system capabilities through every iteration of its evolution since 1986. Over the years we have reviewed other systems to see if there is a better fit out there to support our various areas of operation in vertical construction, heavy civil construction, construction management, mosular fabrication and specialty subcontracting, and to date we have not found a better fit for our business. The system is not perfect but it is constantly evolving and being enhanced to meet customer requests and remain in alignment with the current technologies available. The areas where Vista is lacking are very limited; estimate imports for new projects and financial analytics are two areas which are currently being developed and we look forward to seeing what Viewpoint will bring forward in these areas.

Pros

B2W Estimate

  • B2W helps with organizations.
  • Very user-friendly.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vista by Viewpoint

  • Being on a Microsoft SQL platform enables easier development and integration with 3rd party software.
  • It has a very flexible User Defined fields and tables system to allow customizing to the user's needs without breaking standard features.
  • Security management is very granular.

Cons

B2W Estimate

  • Better integration.
  • Crashes here and there.

  • My only complaint and its nothing big. When entering vendor invoices it automatically goes to the invoice date which is the second line instead of defaulting to the first line (G/L date) so while entering invoices its not as smooth because I am backing up one with every invoice entry. Again not a big deal.
  • I really don't dislike anything about it. At times it can be a little slow which could be our server and not the system. There have been times when I have entered faster than it could upload and it causes me some errors. More of an issue of my impatience than anything else
  • Trying to get the correct report, or get a report that fits my needs can be a little trying at time.

It's very customizable and accessible outside of Vista itself (SQL, Excel, home grown programs, etc.), but Viewpoint is very slow at fixing bugs and adding suggestions from their suggestion box. If this last area was better, I would have given this a 9 or 10.

Vista is a very easy product to learn and use. It is extremely customizable. If you need additional fields or even complete tables, this product allows for it. It helps to have someone on your team that understands SQL databases, but if you have that you can accomplish just about anything you need this product to do.

Though I have not interfaced with Vista by Viewpoint's support team, I know my office has, and it seems like changes or issues are addressed or resolved in a timely manner. It also seems like the program has the flexibility to integrate or be changed to become a custom solution for our company.

The trainer Viewpoint sent did not understand the processes, he only knew where the modules were located. He had no understanding of the actual process itself.

I personally have used Timberline by Sage, Sage Master Builder, and American Contractor by Maxwell (before it was purchased by Viewpoint). Neither of those solutions provided the depth of flexibility that Vista by Viewpoint does. With each, there were several aspects (such as a WIP schedule) that were easier to do in Excel, outside of the software.Vista also has the commonality of Crystal Reports, rather than a proprietary reporting system.

  • HR Management product is great and has made on boarding to time off requests and everything in between very easy, functional and efficient
  • Very scaleable product that has easily handled a 30% increase in employee headcount
  • Sometimes hard to be a specialty contractor with a product that tries to appeal to general contractors as well.
