DevSamurai
Well suited:
  • Estimation of user stories in agile team.
  • Recording the estimations and events directly to JIRA.
  • Estimations can be done without leaving JIRA.
  • Best suitable in this pandemic situation as most of the people are working remotely.
  • Different estimation scales are present to adapt as per the team norms for example Fibonacci, T-shirt sizing and custom estimations as well.
Scenarios where it is less suitable:
  • Where only inbuilt chat box from DevSamurai is used. So synchronization is an issue there.
  • And apart from that a consistent internet connectivity is required.

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).

  • It is great with balancing sites or specific areas on site.
  • Procontractor has multiple views and reports that help you to view the dirt movement on the site (grid, profile, 3D).

Cons
DevSamurai
  • Live chat box feature need to be improvised as it still not robust.
  • Integration module should be flexible enough to stick with other workflow tools.

I give Viewpoint ProContractor a 10 out of 10. This system is user friendly to help keep me organized on a daily basis. I can find everything I need daily with this system. I am able to look up our subcontactors, vendors and clients I need to find quickly. I am able to see bills that I need to pay as well as invoices that I need to send out.

When something isn't working, you can contact support who will gladly remote into your system and try and work out a solution. Though several of the issues we encountered, they were not able to fix and had to submit for further review. While some were eventually rectified in updates, it takes time for these to be addressed and implemented.

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.

DevSamurai
  • Estimation of user stories and updating the JIRA is automated and hence resulted in reduced efforts in poker planning.
  • No need to be present under same roof for estimation, and hence a flexibility which is much required in this scenario.
  • Clients can have a clear and better picture of estimation at any time with all statistics and hence customer sees more transparency.

  • The program has helped us grow in finance and accounting measures. We were limited with more basic accounting software.
  • The program has limited our ability to integrate various aspects of our business to avoid dual entry.
