    Compared to other accounting software, I think InFocus offers more functionalities and it's very user friendly. It's a cloud based solution you can easily access remotely, and the connection speed is quite fast. It integrates project management data and financial data, which is important for an engineering company like us.

    Well suited for the owner's side of managing multiple projects as it allows for all aspects of a project from development to closeout to be managed on one platform. Not as appropriate for a general contractor as there is better software out there. e-Builder's app is not as effective as others.

    Pros

    Clearview Software

    • Functionality - compared to some other software, it's a breeze to make modifications in InFocus.
    • Integration - it's a pretty smooth implementation from our legacy system Deltek.
    • User friendly - it's cloud based, easy to access from anywhere, connection speed is fast.

    • Provide a document structure that is easy to navigate. All documents, even within a process, are stored in the document structure and easily accessed by those with the correct permissions.
    • Scheduling, especially with the new module is easy. It is helpful with a large organization where many hands touch projects to be able to forecast workloads (we have an in house engineering team who reviews all projects during their design phase)
    • Allows for easy interface with contractors and makes the submittal process more straightforward.

    Cons

    Clearview Software

    • The report module can include more canned reports.

    • The restrictions in formatting, and sorting of information rendered, in a way, affects the reporting output.
    • At certain times of day, e-Builder traffic causes the loading of filtered searches to take a while. This is probably common regardless of the site or software used.
    • More complicated reporting has some limitation, though the program is highly efficient in assisting with simple format reports.

        Because again, one of our biggest clients entrusts E-builder to work with their systems. And its functions work for us as well.

        Again, because our technical support is great. He doesn't always answer the phone but he definitely responds to emails fairly quickly. In addition, I like that he actually resolves an issue and I have yet to encounter the same issue twice. Actually, I haven't encountered many issues at all in the two years I have used the software.

        1. Set up the time to get training on the sytem before you go all in.
        2. Listen, ask questions and actually practice using the tools and features while in class. It helps tremendously with becoming comfortable and remembering how things work.
        3. Don't be afraid to mess up. They are helpful and will help resolve your issue in a timely manner

        We have not compared other plans since the boss prefers this program from personal experience. But from using this program for 2 years I can see why we don't need to compare. Why fix something that isn't broken? It gets the job done, yes we might run into some issues but I feel like with all companies that can happen

        • Has more than cut in half the time it takes to generate reports about project status
        • Has made project management more efficient
