Cosential

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

If you're working with a lot of clients and are working in one field Norada is perfect. I found it difficult to configure it to work precisely as I want to for a multi-field company that offers two very different products whose sales teams should never meet, yet know about each other.

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 have received fast answers to any questions I have ever had. The support staff knows how to work with less tech-literate people and is patient enough to explain. Even if my issue was not solvable the support staff gave me another way to get the job done.
