Probably not cost-effective for very small companies. It seems to fit mid-market very well. We have 3 companies with very different needs, and it was flexible enough to work well for us in each scenario. This included a company with 20 different unions and a non-union company. Payroll supported both. Consolidation of multiple companies was easily done as the data all resided in the same database.

Pros

Vista by Viewpoint

  • Time management for the foreman. They enter who is on job and what time. All on their iPad and we upload. It saves everyone time and its correct every time.
  • Receipts can be sent via phone or iPad and we can upload them to the system and attach them to their PO with no issues and makes it so easy to track and keep the budget under control not to mention hold everyone accountable for their spending.
  • Surveys and updated info requests can be emailed out, completed and returned via the cloud. Makes updates so much easier.

Cons

Vista by Viewpoint

  • In the payroll arena, occasionally some combination of actions will cause a Payroll Timecard Entry batch to become stuck in a Status 4 - Posting in Progress. Vista by Viewpoint requires that Customer Support be contacted whenever a batch is stuck in Status 4, as it is unclear what parts of the batch have posted to the other modules, especially General Ledger. Support is a whiz at untangling these situations.
  • However, a Payroll Timecard Entry batch does not post anywhere except its' own table - Payroll only posts to GL and other modules when the PR Ledger Update process is run. Support could conceivably allow customers to change the Status of only these batches, as no other modules would be affected. Then the customer could fix their problem and move on without further delaying the payroll process.
  • The User Interface in the Payroll and Accounts Payable modules have traditionally been clunky for non-accounting personnel to use. The increase in non-accounting people using some aspects of the system - for instance, remote payroll entry or project staff reviewing AP invoices - used to cause some angst. This has been greatly alleviated by the advent of the KeyStyle modifications in these two areas.
  • The functionality of the Service Management module continues to be added with each new update. It would be even better if Service could function more like Job Cost in the way of tracking costs. There seems to be a lack of commonality between the two modules - though it is getting better.

Though I have not interfaced with Vista by Viewpoint's support team, I know my office has, and it seems like changes or issues are addressed or resolved in a timely manner. It also seems like the program has the flexibility to integrate or be changed to become a custom solution for our company.

ComputerEase was pretty old technology. Input screens were clunky. Application customization required consulting to get involved as well as report modifications. Utilizing some kind of proprietary database put all the maintenance back on the software manufacturer. Promises of porting the application to SQL Server database went on and on for multiple years with no progress evident.

Return on Investment

Vista by Viewpoint

  • Monthly WIP meetings with Vista reporting have been a lifesaver for our company, we know immediately if something on a project needs to be fixed.
  • Time-saving imports have let us use that time somewhere more productive.
  • With custom reporting that we can do ourselves, audits are not a huge deal anymore.
