CMIC Review

Used across all of our construction management and field departments. Ties financials into all project management functions.
  • Helps keep track of financials in real-time.
  • One database for most of the functions we use daily.
  • Forecasting provides a very good tool to see financial the health of a project.
  • Not user-friendly at all!
  • Drawing/document management is terrible.
  • RFI/submittal tools are awkward and (again) not user-friendly.
  • Many glitches and lags while using.
  • Half of training consists of "work arounds" of the CMIC system to fit our needs.
CMIC has great potential with the financial aspect. If the user interface could be more intuitive/friendly, I think it would be a really great product. Drawing/document/communication/RFI/Submittal management is archaic. I am used to a Bim-360 or Procore type tool for this. Much more user-friendly.

The entire organization is using it. No complaints about the program. In the field, everything I need is readily accessible due to CMIC. Due to the type of construction MARANT performs (Tenant interior), I currently complete my own daily reports in a separate bound book. It would be too time-consuming to complete on CMIC. No complaint on the program, just something MARANT would have to assess if we are ever forced to complete these on CMIC.
  • Organization: ability to house all site docs in a central location to extract.
  • Daily journals can be done and uploaded so there is always a copy accessible to anyone requiring it.
  • Date stamps showing when documents were uploaded to confirm the most recent.
  • Timesheets are always a few pay periods behind and not the current week. Perhaps this is an internal item and not due to CMIC.
  • My sidebar to call up certain projects, and open documents could be a little easier to navigate. The idea of being able to shortcut jobs and pin them for easy access would be nice.
  • Are there any free videos that can be watched for training purposes on the basic functions of the app? Perhaps, I am missing easy stuff because I have not been fully trained and just figured it out over the years.
CMIC is well designed and structured for a construction management company. I have no reason to believe that MARANT should not be using this program. CMIC has the ability to house all site docs, and project documents in a central location and have everything accessible to people that require access.

CMiC is a company-wide tool used by Marant to streamline information transfer from client to a consultant to Marant PM/PC to me, on-site. It allows site personnel to access all relevant documents at a moment's notice, allowing for quick decision making on-site. All documented information relevant to the project is available with a few clicks of a mouse. This can be then easily shared with others on-site or off-site via email. Looking forward to the mobile version being tested by Marant and how it will further improve our productivity.
  • Shop drawings
  • Contract change requests (CCR)
  • Submittals from suppliers for approval
  • Ease of request for information (RFI) access
  • Mobile version usable on my smart phone.
The type of projects Marant is involved in, mainly tenant fit-out, is ideal for this platform. Having multiple sites to oversee, the access to each project's relevant documentation is essential to the smooth operation and schedule adherence. Having all levels of the operation doing their part to keep the information up to date is very important. If there is a break in the data input to the platform. The CMiC app will only operate as good as those inputting the information.

It is being used as a project management software. It addresses communication between field and office, and producing necessary documents for signature with subcontractors.
  • Manages subcontracts well.
  • Manages PCI's well, keeps an accurate log and cuts down time in managing.
  • Manages RFI's well, keeps an accurate log and cuts down time in managing.
  • Bid management is archaic and needs to be reviewed and rewritten.
  • Punch list has been in beta for 18+ months, and still has issues that have not been resolved.
  • Security is a monster for a mid-sized company such as ours. Simplifying the security issues would be helpful.
CMiC appears to be geared toward the larger construction companies, that can afford to have full-time IT support staff. Mid sized companies may struggle with it, for lack of full-time support. We have not had good luck inviting collaborators to the platform and it seems to struggle when we try. There are other more intuitive platforms that may be better fit for the small customers.

Financial tracking: purchase orders, subcontracts, cost tracking, etc.

Field use: drawing management, daily journals, submittals, RFIs, project timesheet entry, etc.

As a turnkey software, it’s helpful to have everything in one place. The processes for each can be unnecessarily cumbersome though. Approving timesheets is a long process. Cost tracking in two different screens is a long process. Printing reports is tough at times. The entire process can be much more user friendly.
  • Live cost tracking.
  • Use with many different devices through the use of the apps.
  • All in one software.
  • Cost tracking can be easier.
  • Document management can be more user friendly.
  • Search features within project.
CMiC has many pros, but a few cons due to usability.

Exploring a Service Module Capacity

Score 6 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source
We use it across our project delivery service teams, as well as our accounting and site teams. It allows us to combine the necessity of tracking larger projects in regards to the necessary submittal bios, change costs, RFIs, as well as integrate forward thinking progress in terms of forecasting and cost statuses. It also allows us to start creating a growing database of historical knowledge to draw from.
  • Consistent formatting of categorical needs over every project.
  • Divisional cost formatting to track actual vs. estimated.
  • If you have the time, it can draw up timely documents by pulling info from non-linear formats.
  • Customizable, pre-loaded divisions to be repeated to suit the particular business, without asking for a programming ticket.
  • Service Module - getting feedback from service groups to create a better tracking platform; right now, it is only in the estimating screen where that option even makes a difference.
  • Quicker way to add divisions during a budget upload. Service deals in quantity, and that extra time is costly.
It is well suited to tracking larger jobs, spanning 4 weeks or longer. We find interior construction and CMiC work quite well together, as long as you have a fresh mind to take a few months of learning the integrated platforms and nuances. There could be a quicker, reduced format for service projects. Right now, we have to use the same system as our capital deliveries, and aside from that, our operations are totally separate.

So far so good

It is being used across the whole organization. It helps with keeping things on record and to receive and send documents to different parties. It is also used to keep track of different projects in terms of both the Management and Accounting Departments.
  • Facilitate communication
  • Uniform template across whole organization
  • Store document
  • More linear way of how different things are related.
  • Better chance to undo "errors" like an undo button or something.
Good scenarios: Managing different projects at once, as it is easy to access different projects within CMIC.
Less appropriate: Not very user -riendly. Some site people have trouble adapting to the concept and therefore tend to avoid using CMIC if they are not used to the program or not very knowledgeable about how to use it.

Good Product, Could Use Improvements

Vetted Review

CMiC is being used by everyone in our organization. It's used in accounting, on the field, and in the project delivery service department. It helps us collaborate with internal staff, and provides a place for us to store and manage all our files. It is also very helpful in project tracking and invoicing. The largest business problem it addresses is having one place to store and manage all files.
  • Information management
  • Invoicing
  • Reports
  • Interface/Display: Not very user friendly. Should reference programs like Bim360 to get a feel for a really easy to navigate, and good-looking display.
  • Lagging/Downloads: Not very efficient to use, doesn't make me want to upload documents to the system based on lagging and downloads times.
  • Platform integration: Why don't contacts sync up with my phone? Should have a feature to integrate better with currently used technologies. Would be cool to have storage folders on your desktop that are cloud-based to import and store files.
I think it's a good platform, but I feel that there are other programs doing document management better. I really was impressed with Bim360's document management software based on the compatibility with the programs we already use, as well as the interface was a lot cleaner and user-friendly. CMiC seems very outdated although it functions in a similar way.

We use CMIC for accounting and document control.
  • Shop drawing tracking
  • RFI tracking
  • Changes
  • Billing
  • User interface
  • Reporting
The shop drawings module works well and is easy to track. The import feature saves time when adding larger amounts of data into the system. One item I would change is to be able to bulk delete items. Right now, if an import is entered incorrectly it becomes time-consuming to delete everything.

I would not repurchase this software for a company of our size

Phase 1 was implemented for Field & PM users. Phase 2 (which we haven't finalized) is for Accounting and the rest of the employees. The hopes were that this software would streamline everything from opportunities to estimating, to active projects, and closeout. We wanted an ERP so everyone would be trained on the same software, using the same steps, and managers & ownership would have a high-level view of what was going on.
  • Providing one place for collab contacts: instead of each PM/Superintendent having their own lists; CMiC allows for a centralized database.
  • Change order screen: the lady that does accounting said that the change order screen is super easy to use and to run reports out of.
  • Daily journal: on the mobile app Daily Journals are super easy.
  • Submittal process is overly complicated; I can't get my PMs to use it.
  • Meeting minutes: again overly complicated.
  • Folder structure: It is painful that I can't pick and choose which folders get used on which project. This confuses the PMs, superintendents & collab users.
  • Mobile app: Doesn't consistently work. Freezes, doesn't log in, doesn't download stuff, when trying to unfreeze the software it deletes whatever wasn't saved. Doesn't work well on HotSpots
  • Estimating: this system does not handle estimating as we know it. It allows the PM to go out for additional pricing; not the initial estimating process
  • Billings are unbelievably difficult. This is one reason we haven't implemented phase 2.
  • Reports: most of the canned reports are quite bland. There's no way to manipulate the canned reports either.
  • Training is NOT easy on this system; even with how much I've trimmed down for Clients & internal employees. I have clients refusing to use this system.
I think this may be well suited for much larger companies that could invest in the costs to make the system much more custom. We are a small-medium size company and this is much more than what we needed.

CMiC is a no-frills construction management software

CMiC is used as a construction management software across the entire company. Company-wide. It handles most of our contract management, insurance management, and accounting. Specifically, our project cost management, our incoming invoices and tracks our outgoing (billings) invoices as well as payroll management. On the project level it manages our budget and change management as well as tracking RFIs, submittals and cost forecasting.
  • Cost management
  • Cost forecasting
  • Payroll management
  • Any collaborative feature
  • Plan management
  • RFI/submittal correspondence
Works well enough to get the job done but other management products are more advanced (and more expensive) and allow better collaboration within the company and with outside parties.

We currently use CMiC to manage contracts, budgets, submittals, RFIs, daily reports, and internal and external change orders between our subcontractors and owner. It is only being used by our construction department, not company wide. It does a decent job managing documents and costs, but it would be more beneficial if it could integrate with our accounting department's software. The organization of the platform is also not very user friendly. We don't have as much control as we would like.
  • Maintain submittals and RFI.
  • Updated ball-in-court reports.
  • Maintaining vendors.
  • Creating reports with selected change items.
  • Grouping certain changes into categories.
  • Integrating the budget with accounting software.
It is well suited for the project management role, updating vendors and keeping track of the budget. It is great with keeping a log of daily activities and contract documents (RFIs, Submittals). However, it is not that great when you when to track real costs against the budget and determine how much money was actually spent.

Focus on the User Interface and Customer's Experience

Being used across the whole organization. Project budget tracking, compliance tracking, financials.
  • The import function for invoices is the only function that saves me time in CMiC.
  • The entire user interface needs to be overhauled. Why do I have to click in five different screens to get one invoice completed? e.g. one screen to choose bill type, another screen to update contracts, another screen to update employees billing rates, another screen to finally create bill.
  • Time tracking for employees. You offer a space for employees to write down their daily tasks but there is no way to export that data after the fact. Why?
  • The manipulation of invoices after they have been posted is impossible. Let the user make manual adjustments/revisions to invoices more easily. This is too cumbersome.
CMiC is the worst user interface experience I've ever had experiencing any software. I have been using it for three years and still click on incorrect drop downs because they are so poorly put together. I suggest you put more first-time users in front of the software and see how confused they are by it.

Streamlines Project Management but Slightly Glitchy

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

CMiC is being used by the company as a whole. Field, Enterprise, and ETime are used company-wide. Field is used in the management of construction projects. I have experience with the submittals, RFIs, budget management, contracts, project set up, and forecasting modules. The problem that it solves is to get all projects on the same platform and create similarity and unity on how projects are run.
  • Forecasting
  • Submittals & Submittal History
  • Budgeting
  • RFIs - Doesn't process a good-looking report with the information displayed well.
  • Occasionally, the Field module is glitchy and won't log on.
  • Occasionally, will glitch in subcontract change orders/PCIs and lose all information.
CMiC Construction Platform is best when dealing with dollars and cents. Contract Forecasting and budgets are reliable and easy to use. I tend to go around the system when processing RFIs as the report provided from the construction platform is less than satisfactory. There are occasional glitches, but for the most part, it solves more issues than it creates.

Our entire organization utilizes CMiC Project Management to collaborate and share data. It is very important to us that we have a program with excellent reporting capabilities. Furthermore, this needs to be done in a timely fashion with a finished product that can be easily understood by whoever might need to access the material.
  • Reporting capabilities
  • Storing data
  • Business process integration
  • Innovation
  • Performance/speed is overall a bit slow
  • User needs profiecient excel knowledge to get desired data from system
  • Environment management
It is a great tool for anyone in an operations-oriented firm. It is also the best commercial construction ERP system for the most reasonable price. It is not particularly suited for environment management such as patch testing, hot fixes, bugs, etc.

CMIC PM is the way to go!

We use CMIC PM for our management processes. I write contracts and change orders through it. We update our owner change orders or issue change orders through it. We manage our RFI's and Submittals through CMIC PM. We send transmittals through it. We use the meeting minutes module to record our meeting minutes. Our superintendents use it for their daily reports.
  • It does contracts really well. You upload your templates once and then you fill in the information that is job specific.
  • The change order process is easy with CMIC PM. We keep track in the PCI (potential change item) module. You can assign it any letter/number combo.
  • You can add attachments to the PCI, so you can keep all your documentation in CMIC PM.
  • We also use it for managing our drawing list. It has a great feature to update drawings where you just click a box next to the ones you want to mark as revised.
  • I wish we could print all the RFI's together. You have to manually go into each one and print it. At the end of the job, we turn them over to the owner and doing each one is time consuming.
  • I would like to see the subcontractors being able to upload their daily's in CMIC PM without seeing sensitive information.
  • Printing all the submittals like the RFI's would be nice.
I came from using Prolog and this software is so much better. The tabs are similar to any Microsoft program so it's user friendly. I cannot ever imagine going back to Prolog. It's sort of like a cassette tape vs. CD. The only thing I can think of where it's not as user friendly is its Daily Reports. We have superintendents that like to talk into a program and have it integrated. With CMIC PM you have to have another program like NoteVault or Hammertech that will load it into CMIC PM.

Some efficiency, but cumbersome and hard to use.

Score 6 out of 10

It's being used to track financials for construction projects. It's used by everyone in the company from managers, to accountants, to admin staff, to risk management. It solves any disconnect issues since it keeps all the information in one place. It also tracks the issues happening on site with the financials.
  • It creates more efficiency by not having to go into several programs for the same information.
  • It ensures accuracy by making everyone work in the same program.
  • You can easily drill down into different locations to access the history of things throughout a project no matter what your role is.
  • The program is very cumbersome and not user friendly. The interface isn't like other interfaces and takes a lot of training to understand.
  • There are many many many categories in some of the financials which can create confusion for different roles on the project.
  • It's hard to use. You can't flip between different screens or you'll lose your place and have to start from the beginning again.
It is well suited for tracking multiple things in one place. In the case I use it, I do recommend it on a theory level for linking financial events to tangible building events. When anyone on the project team brings up an issue, it can be tracked from meeting minutes to RFI or submittal to potential change to change in both subcontractor and owner contract values.

CMiC Project Management is being used by our organization to manage contracts, budgets, and changeorders with owners and subcontractors. The whole organization utilizes it, but primarily, it's used by project managers, controllers, and executives. It addresses business problems dealing with contracting with owners and change orders and is tied with payments and budgets.
  • It actively tracks contracts and change orders to give a real time budget for projects.
  • Information is saved per project to easily write multiple contracts to subcontractors withing the same project.
  • Master Agreements are saved at the admin level, so all contracts written within the company include the same language.
  • The interface is cumbersome and not intuitive to new users.
  • Reasons for contracts or reports not compiling can be ambiguous and difficult to rectify.
  • The ability to copy and paste text from Word documents can be improved to have better formatting and legibility.
CMiC is well suited for having structure and uniformity in regards to writing and issuing contracts. However, it suffers from a difficult to use interface, as well as, ambiguous error messages when inputting incorrect information. Ultimately, it is a very useful tool once the syntax is learned, but the learning curve can be steep for new users.
