Cosential

Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.

Vincere

This has been such a fantastic experience for our company, I'd recommend Vincere in a heartbeat. Fantastic service with a team who seem like they genuinely just want to help - they really seemed to care about getting us happy with their product, especially when helping us finish the data import from our old system.

I'd say it would be a good fit for a large recruitment company as the dashboards and reporting is very good. However, the low price also makes it a good option for start-ups or cost conscious firms.

Pros

Cosential

  • Inputting of companies and leads who may become prospects.
  • Creating specific opportunities for construction projects.
  • Tracking opportunities through the entire sales cycle.
  • Inputting detailed notes and activity by the Sales team.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vincere

  • Alex (on the help desk) is amazing when it comes to helping me when I don't know how to process things on the system; she knows exactly what I need to understand what she is trying to explain and even does a quick video for me which helps a lot and saves me time.
  • CV integration is great and saves me a lot on having to write a candidate's CV from scratch or copying and pasting.
  • The live list to clients and how it allows the client to interact with you and inside their own organization. It also looks more professional, the way it is sent to the client, than just a generic email.
  • I love the reporting system and how it keeps you on your toes, as you can see where you are as in stats and how much you need to bring in still. For managers and owners, the reporting functions are great. As long as your staff are capturing all the info into the system your reports will pretty much be 100% accurate. The best thing is you can pull a report to let you know exactly which data isn't being put into they system by which staff and you can then follow up with them.

Cons

Cosential

  • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
  • Report writing could be more intuitive.
  • The company seems to cater to larger users.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vincere

  • Full of bugs.
  • The same data points are quoted differently across the product.
  • Removing data when you wish to leave has been a real challenge. Limited capability in the product itself and a slow to respond support team.
  • Support is poor in general.
  • Every new release provides more complexity that adds no value and compounds the many bugs in the product further.
  • Even as part of a GDPR request we found it difficult to get our data from the company, we were also charged for the privilege.
  • Support is slow and unwilling to admit where fundamental problems exist in the product. If they respond it's with a workaround rather than a fix.
  • Lots of corny comments about billing, making money, "license to Bill" are communicated from the company and in the product. Not everyone in this sector is driven by money some of us want to provide a quality service, the money is an outcome of a good job not the starting point.
  • The sales process consisted of basically lots of window dressing about the product, we were tied to 3 years and then found out most of the features we purchased the product for don't work and many still don't work nearly 3 years later.

Cosential is very intuitive for the AEC industry and has the ability to be customized for your specific needs. The reports are especially helpful, with good visual dashboards.

My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

I mostly got Alex, and she was absolutely amazing and sometimes I would request for her to help me. The support at Vincere that I have received so far has been great!

Alternatives Considered

Cosential

Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vincere

The interface and the bulk-activities. Even though the others are more customizable, Vincere.io definitely gives you plenty of freedom when doing other tasks.
