Cosential

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

MCA Suite

It is a good tool for smaller companies entering the MCA space, but doesn't scale all that well, and provides limited options for reporting customization.

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.
