Our operation uses several pieces of what we call specialty equipment (not used every day on every job). The foreman when finished will give a location of where this equipment is left, this many times can be very vague and lead to a lowboy driver trying to block around to find the piece or driving down a street he cannot get turned around in. With the GPS devices, the driver can pinpoint exactly where the unit is and if he has room to turn around at that location.

In creative teams such as marketing, design, video, social media I think it's well suited. Even a small start up / small business / freelancers to keep track on projects. It's great for collaboration and as a tool for yourself to organise your workload. I'm not sure if it would be suited for other roles that perhaps a more detailed tool.

Pros

HCSS

  • #1 is support! HCSS is by far the best software support of any product we have ever used. Unlike most software companies HCSS utilizes their support calls to help upgrade their software. When you here them tell you that they will write down a particular issue you come across during a support call if they can't help you then and there they will research and get an answer to you extremely fast. If the software will not do it, you can bet there is a good chance it will be on the list of enhancements you will see come out in the near future.
  • Estimating software is very extensive. Their software is capable of handling the smallest estimate all the way to the largest joint venture estimate. It has advanced features that make it extremely useful for analyzing job materials, subcontractors etc.
  • HeavyJob is an extremely useful tool for the field to keep the office up to date with job costs. Everything is at the Foreman's fingertips on Tablets to allow the information from the field to get uploaded to HeavyJob manager which then can export to accounting. We are also able to give our Foreman the ability to deal with the Daily and weekly safety needs (Tailgate Meetings, incident Investigation, observations etc.) right on the Tablets thru HeavyJob.

  • Visualization - We are able to see views of areas in a snap, with project and order status available to everyone immediately.
  • Collaboration - Global team has access to comment on tasks, with audit history downloadable to Excel.
  • Automation - keeping our teams and customer informed using automations saves hours of manual emails and phone calls to departments.

Cons

HCSS

  • All their apps are on mobile devices. Although there is not a clear company policy on Android versus iPhone. Updates for features lag behind on Android. Some apps are exclusive to one platform making it hard to fully interconnect all programs.

  • I would like an option to create spreadsheets similar to how a spreadsheet looks on Excel. There are some spreadsheets that I would like created on monday.com, but monday.com will not adapt to what we want the spreadsheet to look like.

It solves all our needs the exact way we imagined it. coming across monday gave us the feeling that we designed the program ourselves to work for the use cases we had in mind.

As mentioned, user interface appears messy and complicated at initial onset. Training is necessary but becomes easy to maneuver through after solid daily use.

Monday.com is very easy to use. Creating new project boards is fast and onboarding team members to use the tool is very simple. You don't really need a lot of training to use the tool. The automations ability is the key differentiator where you can take away some of the repetitive mundane tasks to save time. It gives good visibility and accountability while managing a project board.

I have never had a bad experience or heard of one in 4 years of doing business with HCSS. That is unheard of even with the hurricanes and flooding in Houston area it feels like HCSS was always there and willing to help in every way.

I've had very little experience with the Customer Success Manager, so I can't give it an accurate rating. I also have little experience with the 24/7 customer support. I've never had to use them before, since I've never had a technical issue with the program. Typically, any issue I come across is easily resolvable by communicating with the owner of the particular board I'm working on at the time.

I was not employed with PPI upon implementation. I would prefer to reference my previous statement, that each company needs to evaluate its culture and address your implementation accordingly. The purchasing company should assign an employee as point person and really take charge of not just the technical side of the implementation (HCSS pretty much handles that), but focus on company culture and training.

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

Alternatives Considered

HCSS

Other estimating products I have used consist of ICE/MC2 and MS Excel. ICE was not a good fit for our company, as they have awful technical support and offer very poor training. MS Excel is great for simple estimates where there is not a lot of data being compiled. However neither hold a candle to the power of HCSS Heavybid

We used an excel spreadsheet to track our month end close process previously which created a lot of issues around only one person being able to be in the checklist at any given time. Additionally, we were unable to have excel notify us when a task we need to have completed was done, but Monday.com has completely changed that for us!

Return on Investment

HCSS

  • The biggest ROI for us was the ease of adoption by field personnel.

  • Saves time by allowing us to put all the information and updates for certain projects in their own space.
  • Increased productivity by laying out tasks in a more readable and manageable area.
  • Provides easy set up for production because we use it to schedule our screen printing projects so we know which screens need to be ready on which day.
