Copper Project

Copper Project is one of the best online project management and communication tools are available for businesses of all types. Creating and assigning the task to other team members becomes easy as it does on its own easily.

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

Copper Project

  • It has been a great find for me as it reduces my work and make me more productive at other work which I usually neglect them because of excessive work.
  • The platform is trending on top of list worldwide because of its stand out feature task structure.
  • It comprises all the best tools and strategies that involve a successful activity development system.

Cons

Copper Project

  • The biggest drawback that Copper Project has that it becomes slow at times [in my experience].
  • Secondly, to manage anything in the platform I have to make a ticket every time to make any changes which are frustrating for me a lot.
  • [In my experience] it usually becomes clunky and slow while dealing with large requests which need to be change and functionality needs to improve more.

  • 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!

Alternatives Considered

Copper Project

Integration of the Copper Project is amazing. It is designed on such a great module that it can easily integrate with any other software. I have a lot of software already in my organization which we are using to handle different processes in the organization, Copper Project easily integrated with them and gives me all in one platform to manage all of my activities on one platform which is a great help for me.

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

Return on Investment

Copper Project

  • This feature is also helping me a lot in making project structure and prioritizing things according to the flow of work, which is great as it gives clear path what to do next.
  • Customer support of Copper Project is very professional.
  • I recently had some problems while using the platform, they listened to the problem carefully and responded with a more feasible and workable solution within the limited time frame, which gives me the confidence to use the platform more in-depth.

  • 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.
