CMiC Construction Platform

Whether it's in the field, or in the office, the CMiC Construction Platform is well suited for daily project management of construction projects. From a project inception, to project closeout, the tools and modules available will help keep your project running smoothly. All aspects of the construction process can be tracked and accessed for real time information. CMiC is a very robust program and we haven't explored all of the modules that are available to us at this point

Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate

Sage is not at all well suited for small companies who want an agile, nimble setup for quick moving situations and mobile use. These type of companies should look elsewhere such as a SaaS offering from another vendor. In addition Sage is very expensive both in its initial outlay and ongoing support.Medium and larger sized companies benefit from a Sage install much more than the smaller constructor. Having the modules all work in unison is important when a company is of a certain size as is having the long tenured support structure. In addition Sage requires the terminals services setup to use it remotely and the larger companies are more likely to have the infrastructure and support for that type of setup

Pros

CMiC Construction Platform

  • It integrates many aspects of project management into one location.
  • It produces easy to understand reports that incorporate financial aspects of the project so that costs and profit can be calculated in real-time rather than as a lagging indicator.
  • Document management is housed within the project, reducing the number of locations and the need for additional cloud storage to maintain project documentation.
  • CMiC customer assistance is prompt and helpful.
Amanda Leffler | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate

  • There are a lot of ways to drill down into information. The ability to run inquiries that can be easily exported into Excel is incredibly useful.
  • The help desk is very helpful. There are multiple ways to get a hold of someone and it is extremely useful.
  • The knowledgebase articles are very helpful and provide a lot of great detail.

Cons

CMiC Construction Platform

  • Missing functionality on the drawing management side. See previous question.
  • Submittal module changes in R12 took away key functionality from the user. Specifically the Fabrication and Delivery fields. CMiC promises to bring this back but the process is too slow. Users have waited months to bring back functionality that was taken away.
  • Submittal module interface via collaborator and I/O email is not updating status correctly.
  • The mobile app does not allow users to change auto-generated checklist names. We have a checklist that is supposed to be used per room but the program auto-generates list names as ###-001, ###-002, etc. In the mobile app, there is no way to see a unique identifier in the list view so users have to open and close each record to find unique identifiers. There is a workaround with the web client but our field employees say its too cumbersome. They are abandoning using the web client checklists and going back to paper copies.
  • Specification extraction does not work.

  • Although Sage is much easier to use with the new upgrade, it still could use improvement with load times with invoice searches.
  • Sage 300 could also include drone uploads to view inventory snapshots.
  • Upgrades can also be less complicated and not require higher-level support to implement.

I like the functionality of CMiC; however, there are always going to be "opportunities" that we encounter to get corrected

Sage is somewhat easy to use as far as its simplicity, however, when I first started using it I really wished there were more training materials available. As I did research to figure out what resources were there to learn how to use the paid software, all I found were courses you have to pay for. In my personal opinion, I don't think you should have to pay to learn how to use a software you bought.

It's a cumbersome platform that doesn't support plans and specs in a way utilized by most construction companies. There is no way to download a specific set (or specifically selected number) of individual drawings sheets, it doesn't package drawings in sets, the Specs function (at least as far as we've been set up for) isn't a function as much as it is a documents folder, uploading is a tedious process that gains no benefit.

I would rate the overall support for Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate as a seven (7). I selected a seven (7) because it is difficult to get a hold of the support for Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate. Once you do reach the Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate support, the support is pretty good. Sometimes they can resolve the issue right away but sometimes it takes a day or more to resolve the issue. It needs some work but it's getting better every day.

Lots of confusion between sales and implementation regarding what was included and not included...the security encountered a "bug" and made it extremely difficult to set up roles and individual responsibilities

Alternatives Considered

CMiC Construction Platform

CMiC was the software currently in use when I joined Pence. I've used Prolog, Constructware, and Procore. All seem to have their advantages and disadvantages. If CMiC was able to mirror the user interface of Procore then this software could be amazing. A program should be very intuitive. CMiC has improved greatly over the years from the last time I used it but it's still very esoteric.

We currently have Sage in place which handles the majority of our business needs on the back end, but compared to some others that are on the market like Builder Trend, it does lack the client facing side of the house. To make it a better product, a client facing portal would be best so they can be up to date.

Return on Investment

CMiC Construction Platform

  • Better project visibility, surely. I can step into a former project and see how well/poorly it was run.
  • Forecasting underway - nearly complete with year 2.
  • Cost status tracking - this has been valuable, especially when figuring out how much of a liquid budget is left over.

Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate

  • The accounting functions (AP, AR, GL) are mature so it does a great job with core financials. The reports are flexible so it does a good job of providing flexibility in report writing. The application is written for a workgroup so multiple people can use it at the same time. The transaction detail is strong so that a transaction can be rolled back if necessary.
