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

Trimble Accubid is incredible for when you need to take your time and get a bid out for a job. It allows you to create templates and reuse a lot of information for future work. However, sometimes for a smaller job, it can be a lot of information to enter, which becomes time-consuming when on short time frames.

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.

  • Provides accurate NECA labor units for materials.
  • Keeps accurate costs of materials through regular updates.

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.

  • While the tools provided are great, there could be more to allow more imaginative users to build their own.
  • The user interface is old and clunky.

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

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.

The training packets are thorough and they are easy to understand. Live support is harder to come by, however, I haven't had any major problems that I have needed to overcome. The best support is not needing to have support in the first place. Ease of use makes this mostly not an issue.

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.

McCormick is an accurate estimating solution, but is far too bulky too compete with Accubid. Pricing reports and breakout options in Accubid are far superior to McCormick. McCormick's on-screen take off may be a benefit to some, but not worth the trade off of Accubid's robust suite.ViewPoint is a small contractor solution that cannot compete on the scale of Accubid.

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.

  • Helps produce more accurate estimates.
  • Allows us to break scopes out without having to re-perform an estimate.
