I wouldn't suggest this ERP for small organizations, especially if there is no IT staff. While they do offer support packages, they can be costly as certain packages limit the number of times you can call in. Hiring an outside consulting firm to support is another route, however that could become costly as well. Medium to large businesses with savvy tech staff would be a good fit for this ERP.

Viewpoint, a Trimble company

Vista by Viewpoint is surely a accounting-based program. It is more aimed at the financial health and wellness reporting on a project rather than a day-to-day operations system. This is great for internal office employees that understand the accounting behind a construction project and how it affects the success of the build. This is not a program used for field employees to know where the project stands.

Cons

Sage

  • Complications in configuration. Had to use a third party vendor to help us customize the system so we could better use it within the organization. This added additional expense
  • Some error messages are in French. If you aren't French, or can't speak French, this makes it pretty hard to troubleshoot
  • If you want to customize reports, you need to know Crystal Reporting (at least for the version I am using)

Viewpoint, a Trimble company

  • Its history is that most entries are transaction-based, requiring batch processing. Some of these could be moved to background batch processing so the batching would be more transparent to the user.
  • More data needs to be available on mobile devices. They are making a move in this direction, which is good.
  • Some screens allow flexibility of viewing data in grid views, but the export of this data to Excel could be improved. This is mostly seen in Workcenters.

      It's very customizable and accessible outside of Vista itself (SQL, Excel, home grown programs, etc.), but Viewpoint is very slow at fixing bugs and adding suggestions from their suggestion box. If this last area was better, I would have given this a 9 or 10.

      I find Viewpoint Customer Portal not great for help and support. Answers are from other users who use the product specifically for their organization and there is a TON of information that is irrelevant to other users. I also find that online support tends to be geared more toward organizations that have their own departments just handling Viewpoint with dedicated IT staff vs smaller firms where the administration is responsible (among many other duties) for Viewpoint functionality. The product itself is pretty powerful but easy to get stuck just using the same functionality without support on new products developments.

      The support is good for the most part, but [we] have had delays in getting certain issues resolved. We have had a third-party company come in to assist us with some learning skills and issues, and then we have had the same company, later on, help with training on certain areas, such as reports.

      The trainer Viewpoint sent did not understand the processes, he only knew where the modules were located. He had no understanding of the actual process itself.

      Unfortunately, the product was purchased before I began working at the organization. I am unsure what other products they may have reviewed before purchasing Sage ERP X3.

      Both are very similar software. I really like Vista by Viewpoint. If it were my job to choose, but it is not. I would most likely go with Vista because It is completely user friendly, easily trainable and easily mobile. I am sure there is even more difference but I am not sure of any huge differences

      Return on Investment

      Viewpoint, a Trimble company

      • HR Management product is great and has made on boarding to time off requests and everything in between very easy, functional and efficient
      • Very scaleable product that has easily handled a 30% increase in employee headcount
      • Sometimes hard to be a specialty contractor with a product that tries to appeal to general contractors as well.
