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

ProContractor

ProContractor is a great fit if you are looking to make the jump to an ERP (accounting) system that offers a higher level of complexity and controls than what QuickBooks or Xero have to offer. However, some of those increased features of accounting controls, vendor compliance management, project contracting and documentation, come at the cost of lost integrations. ProContractor is completely siloed and does not openly communicate with other platforms (project management, bank accounts, etc).

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.

  • Lots of reports available to generate

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.

  • More of a project management "vibe".
  • Less spreadsheet and complex processes to do things.

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.

ProContractor support has gone through good times and bad times. However, now that ViewPoint is owned by Trimble the support has been great and stable. Support is good to respond on average urgency tickets. The only complaint is that for urgent tickets communication can be slow even though the support team is working on the 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.
Tony Ricca | TrustRadius Reviewer

ProContractor

Procore beats Viewpoint hands down but can integrate well with Viewpoint Vista accounting software. I think that if the Viewpoint software was more flexible if they were more interested in patches, updates, and hearing customer feedback in the way the Procore does, that they would actually have the opportunity to corner the market.

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.

  • Procontractor allows our company to visualize the site and figure out the problematic areas that can't be seen just from plans.
