    Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    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

    ProContractor

    • Lots of reports available to generate
    Ben Morey | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    ProContractor

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    ProContractor

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