    Clearview InFocus

    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.

    If you are considering purchasing this (very expensive) software, there is a 100% chance you are doing so because you have been awarded a Government contract that dictates you use 4Clicks Project Estimator. There are plenty of easier to use estimating packages out in the world, but you can't use any of them if you have a contract that requires 4Clicks.

    Pros

    Clearview InFocus

    • 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.

    • The estimates it produces are simple and easy to follow. The formatting is good.
    • The tech support provided is very attentive.

    Cons

    Clearview InFocus

    • The report module can include more canned reports.

    • The software feels 20 years old. It has not kept up with modern times, and practically functions like an old DOS program.
    • Clunky interface, arcane commands.
    • Even their training info focuses on hotkeys like this is 1995. Even though I am of an age to remember computers in 1995, the younger generations of managers/estimators are not. It is time to bring the software into the new century!

    I prefer InFocus over other products.

    WinEst uses much the same database (RS Means/Gordion type) and has a similar interface. It is a bit cheaper.

    Return on Investment

    Clearview InFocus

    • Improves efficiency.
    • Increases productivity.

    • As stated before, if you are buying this software, it is because you have a contract forcing you to. While it does work, it is clunky, awkward, and very expensive.
    • The price of the software and databases has always been high, but with the fairly recent acquisition of 4Clicks by Gordion (who also bought RS Means for their databases), there is literally no competition. Prices will continue to be very high, with no check on how high they can go.
    • Again, can't fault 4Clicks tech support, as I think it is the best in the industry. They know their product and they respond to issues immediately. Considering what we spend a year for this product, however, you would expect nothing less.
