All areas of business from accounting to project management to payroll. We replaced Viewpoint accounting with CMiC Construction Platform and much of what we were doing in Procore from a project management standpoint. We are in the process of getting rid of Procore entirely for CMiC Construction Platform. CMiC Construction Platform is a bit more powerfull in terms of reporting and meets out needs of a "one stop shop".
  • Custom Reporting
  • Access from anywhere
  • Journal Entries
  • Change Order management
  • Speed
  • In my opinion, converting is difficult to put it lightly
  • In my opinion, submitting cases can be slow to get solutions to issues that arise
CMiC Construction Platform is a good software for a one stop shop so to speak. We are very happy with the ability to do all of our project management functions like budgeting, cost reporting, subcontract and change order management, billing, etc. It is also a highly functioning accounting software. Previously we were using procore and viewpoint and the ERP was not always seemless so it is nice to have everything in one place. There are a lot of places where we can import and export data which makes life easier in many respects.

CMiC is used by FCL for tracking activities on commercial construction projects in Field and managing financial tasks in Enterprise. Activities include everything from buy-out to writing subcontracts and change orders to daily site journals and checklists. The system also stores information regarding project contacts, documents and drawings. The subcontract and change order amounts flow over to the Enterprise where CMiC is used to process subcontractor payments, general AP and AR, job billing to owners and charging labor time to jobs. CMiC is also used to forecast project progress and address potential issues proactively.
  • AP processing utilizing Image Manager
  • Budget and Cost Management in Field to process subcontracts and change orders
  • Security roles to manage access
  • Forecasting can be inconsistent depending on configuration
  • Security set up can be complicated and tedious
  • Job Billing can be inconsistent depending on configuration
CMiC is a robust platform best suited for large companies with resources for implementation and management of the program. One analogy is CMiC is like a droid phone where the user must decide how to use all the features of the program (as opposed to an iPhone where most configuration decisions are made for the user). Smaller companies with limited resources can struggle with CMiC both with the expense and configuration.

CMiC [Construction Platform] is being used by the entire organization. Payroll uses it for processing payments. Accountants use it to pay our vendors and subcontractors. Project teams use it to track production, contracts, costs, and much more. The entire organization uses CMiC [Construction Platform] one way or another. It helps keep the teams organized.
  • The contract platform is user friendly and spits out the correct information.
  • It is easy to pull reports in CMiC enterprise for cost.
  • Easy to submit invoices for payment.
  • CMiC needs to work on the very outdated labor transfer platform. It is so old and not user-friendly [in my opinion].
  • [In my experience] there is a glitch that happens very often. You won't be able to log in if you don't close out all tabs and try to re-open the platform. Sometimes multiple times.
  • The user face could be nicer and more professional.
It is well suited for accounting. It could be better on the field side for project teams to be organized, it can be complicated.

CMiC Construction Platform is our main accounting, payroll, asset management and field management program. It addresses the issue of information being in many different locations. It is used by all levels, divisions and departments at our company. Deletion of information is restricted to a few users and employees are restricted to the areas they primarily work in.
  • Tracks Costs
  • Reports Cost
  • Ties source records to additional records
  • In my experience, setup of program is very cumbersome. Multiple Consultants sessions are required at an additional cost to demonstrate how it could be setup. A more in-dept, strategic approach would be better then try and see approach.
  • Programming changes to the program cause issues in daily usage.
  • In my opinion, Support is lacking. Tickets can be submitted but many times the issue is not clearly understood. I think it would resolve issues more quickly to speak with someone rather than weeks of back and forth.
In my opinion, expect to invest a lot of money and time in getting the program up and running. Staff shortages are significant so implementation and resolution of issues is slow and frustrating. In my experience, upgrades haven't been smooth as daily operations are stopped until fixes are applied. Also, in my experience, integrations with third-party software, like Kofax, are problematic.
I have found that it's a several year process to get the programing going. I think, if it wasn't for the regular glitches the overall concept is commendable.

We use it from pipline planning to end of job, in the future we hope to start using it for warranty. Just by moving to this product we were able to double our workload and keep relatively the same number of staff, whereas before we were looking to hire more people. The workflows and MIP's create a large amount of efficiencies.
  • Workflows
  • Reports
  • Access
  • Ease of use
  • Daily Logs
  • Customizable Workflows
  • Easier to follow documentation
If you have more than 3 jobs running at once this is the ideal product, if you are only doing one or two jobs a year than I would look elsewhere as it might be overkill. However if you are looking to expand without taking on a lot of new staff this product can help with that.

Our company implemented CMiC to bring the field and corporate together on one consolidated platform. It is the primary Project Management and Accounting system for the company. We complete our payroll and union payroll reporting in CMiC. We also utilize the Equipment modules in CMiC for costing and billing. The job cost, subcontract commitments, and job billing data populate the contract forecasts, which flow into the WIP. We store some documents electronically in CMiC; however, many are outside the system.
  • It stores the company's main data in a central location.
  • In my opinion, Payroll support response times for critical issues are far longer than specified in the contract 90% of the time. Other issues have taken up to 18 months to resolve.
  • In my opinion, patches always break at least one existing functionality. Patches are a major issue for most companies using CMiC Enterprise or PAAS.
  • In my opinion, clients are responsible for testing ALL functionality used in every patch. Time demands are excessive.
  • In my opinion, CMiC trainers are often unknowledgeable. A few are good, but we received more than one trainer who was in their first or second week with CMiC.
  • I believe the description on CMiC's billable Contracts and Work Orders are purposefully short and deceptive about hidden costs. This has been a fight since day one and never improved.
  • In my opinion, users receive a ton of obscure error messages and may be system issues.
  • In my opinion, performance is often slow and problematic.
  • In my opinion, implementation takes over a year for the majority of companies. In our case, over two years.
  • In my experience, payroll tax reports were not fixed until right before or even on the due date.
  • In my experience, this ERP requires the company to have full-time people dedicated to the implementation, upgrades, patches, user training, and reporting/handling of support issues. The upgrade process had so many issues it became known as a downgrade at our company.
  • In my opinion, the customer success team was unhelpful.
  • In my opinion, CMiC Construction Platform focuses on creating new features instead of fixing the existing features with problems.
  • In my opinion, CMiC does not listen and enact positive change.
  • In my opinion, promises are not kept.
In my opinion, CMiC Construction Platform is not well-suited for companies unwilling to dedicate overly patient full-time people to supporting it. In my opinion, CMiC Construction Platform is not well-suited for companies unprepared to spend more than originally expected to implement and support it. In my opinion, CMiC Construction Platform is generally more appropriate for large companies in the ENR top 100 willing to deal with long wait times and not worried about the cost. In my opinion, having a programmer on staff is necessary, but it is almost impossible to find one.

We use CMiC to manage the construction documents for all of our projects. This includes financial modules for billing clients and paying sub-trades. We manage the additional cost impact through the enterprise module, which affects the financial module keeping all costs in line. We use the platform across the whole organization, connecting our Projects Department and our Financial Department. This helps us ensure costs are updated in real-time and prevents confusion between the two departments. We also use the system with our field operations—documents are added as they are received and our Field Team is able to stay up to date with real-time information.
  • Cost management.
  • Meeting minutes.
  • Invoicing.
  • Contract management.
  • Change records management.
  • Document management.
CMiC is well suited for companies that have can integrate multiple departments with it. For example, we do not have to share cost status with our financial department—they have real-time access to it. This ensures that departments are retrieving real-time information and prevents a lag or misinformation between departments. CMiC would not be suitable for an organization that does not heavily depend on project management, with cost and document management being crucial parts of the business. For a financial-only company, CMiC has a very simple system and is not the best when creating reports for finances.

We use CMiC Construction Platform as our main project management tool. We run RFIs, submittals, and meeting minutes through it as well as tracking our project financials and change orders. CMiC Construction Platform is missing a drawing management module that most other construction software has.
  • Financial forecasting.
  • Document tracking.
  • Financial organization.
  • Labor forecasting--this should automatically update the forecast as each pay period rolls.
  • No drawing coordination.
  • More flexibility with documents. Meeting minutes are tough to organize in a flexible manner.
CMiC Construction Platform brings a good amount of horsepower for the program's cost. It definitely lacks some of the additional tools of more expensive products and is not the most user-friendly. However, once you learn the ins and outs, it can be a good asset.

Construction companies(clients) need a complete understanding of ongoing projects ( building construction). That includes, how much construction is completed, what are current tasks and applied human force, and the Inventory level. Also, planned activities/Tasks and it's allotment along with expected dates. CMiC Construction Platform Provides a complete picture of the project if required inputs provide the proper way. Labor/ Humanforce can easily understand what task they have been assigned and its tentative completion date.
  • Task Creation & Sub Task Creation
  • Logical Tasks Grouping
  • Tasks Implementation in sequential manner and parallels way
  • Vendor/Labor allotment on Tasks
  • For New user, it need time to understand the navigation & Control
  • Add to Favorite sort of functionality need to be added to access repeatedly accessing features
CMiC Construction Platform maintained a focus on automating functions – such as enterprise planning, human capital management, and asset management, field operations, project management & controls, and collaboration. Project information is on a real-time basis, so all information is always complete and accurate and this is the reason construction firms can keep multiple projects running smoothly, and on time, while better controlling their projects.

We are in the implementation phase for CMiC Field tools. We are replacing ProLog and adding mobile capability with CMiC. CMiC provides integrated project management modules that our current system does not offer. Our next phase is to implement mobile time tracking within CMiC, followed by contract forecasting.
  • Subcontract/PO management with Docusign integration
  • Submittal/RFI management
  • External partner portal for collaborators
  • Easy to use mobile tools
  • Forms/checklists feature unused because lacking basic functions
  • Submittal/RFI reviewer table as taken time to understand to fit our current processes
  • Some fields are hard coded which require UDF workaround
Well suited for companies that require a tailored system with the ability to make changes in-house as needed.

We use CMiC to run a large portion of our business, from tracking project budgets and costs, to HR, to equipment, and accounting. We run all invoices through workflows and can tie costs directly and instantly to jobs. We collect time and process payroll which also ties to our project costs. We take advantage of the subcontractor qualifications module as well as opportunity management to monitor subcontractors and track pursuits. We especially take advantage of the unified data structure and have created over 60 BI reports that we use to help monitor all of our departments. Our processes in CMiC allow us to collect clean data, which we use to help make decisions on how to run our business. The ease of access and consistency of good data is a great benefit to using CMiC.
  • Reasonable price for what it offers
  • Connected database, especially with accounting and operations
  • Ability to configure the platform to fit our business needs
  • Needs to be more user friendly on the mobile side of the platform. Ease of use is key here.
  • There is not much instruction or support in standing up some programs like deploying ECM for outlook, making Collaboration Gateway work, or setting up the system for getting Plans available on the mobile devices.
  • Security configuration is extremely detailed and spread throughout the system. It is extremely hard to make adjustments to a person's security unless you know exactly where to look, which requires years of experience but shouldn't.
  • The platform is well suited for tracking project financials. The direct tie between the project budgets and costs on the accounting side makes this platform extremely valuable as we have real time cost data to make decisions from.
  • The platform is great in that it integrates the majority of our major processes. We can track a pursuit in Opportunity Management and push that information directly to a project. We hire people through the system and they are available to input on a project. We track time and pay people through CMiC and even manage our equipment fleet. This one platform satisfies a lot of our business needs, which makes our technology stack a bit easier to manage.
  • The platform as it stands today is not well suited for mobile consumption. We have users not use the mobile platform due to issues with losing data when not in wifi and issues with not understanding how to use the system.

We are a commercial construction company doing business in all of the western states. We use CMiC for our accounting, payroll, project management, and field. Before switching to CMiC we struggled with being able to connect with our guys in the field and being able to access our data from outside the office. With CMiC Cloud it has given us the ability to access our data from wherever we are. We constantly struggled with our field being able to see the latest information. CMiC Field has given them access to see the latest data and also easily submit daily journals and various reports.
  • CMiC has really good customer service
  • CMiC is constantly trying to evolve to meet the new and everyday needs
  • Willingness to collaborate with users on how they can improve
  • They provide a wide array of useful tools
  • The ability through the cloud to work from anywhere
  • Depending on what module you are in, there are a lot of issues with continuity. It appears that each screen was designed by a different programmer and there wasn't a basic structure to follow. The save button on one screen is at the top and on another it is on the bottom. Then on other screens the save button is called "process". Also on most date entry fields, you can enter the date as MMDDYY but on others, you have to do YYYY-MM-DD. I would really like them to make things consistent through all of the modules. It makes training new employees more difficult when there isn't consistency.
  • I’m hoping this has been fixed with the new CMiC Connect App but but mobile field in the past has been very glitchy. Every time there has been an update to the apps our employees and subcontractors have had to delete and uninstall the app. This has caused a lot of frustration and an unwillingness to use the app.
CMiC Construction Platform works great as an all-in-one solution. However, due to the fact that CMiC can do so many things well other programs that specialize in just one thing are oftentimes a little cleaner or more polished. The thing that has helped our company the most is being connected to the cloud. We are able to work from home, on the road, or in the field. Our connectivity with our field superintendents has never been better. They are able to see updated sub-lists, submittals, RFIs in real-time, not needing to rely on the project managers to either print or email the documents to them. For the price, there isn't a better all-in-one solution on the market.

It is our construction management software. We use CMiC Construction Platform to manage drawings, specifications, RFIs, submittals, contracts, change orders, meeting minutes, punch lists, warranty work requests, and the list goes on. Our Construction Management department utilizes the PC and remote device applications interchangeably to ensure and strive that the most current data is available at all times throughout our projects.
  • Maintaining a web base platform to house various project related documents.
  • Navigation is fairly intuative after initial use.
  • If/when there is an error, it is very clear that the sitation has occurred.
  • Timely programming repairs.
  • Software consistency - Seems to glich sparadically
CMiC Construction Platform continues to work out "kinks" and become more users friendly, however, the glitches are the largest pain point. Especially during late east coast afternoons when the entire continent is active.

We use CMiC for Project Management, Payroll, Accounting, Invoice routing, and Time recording. The advantage of using CMiC is that all our data is centralized into one database. This means that everything talks to each other without the need for clunky 3rd party integrations.
  • Project Management
  • Analytics/BI
  • Accounting
  • QA patching
  • Support
If you are looking for a natively integrated ERP platform built specifically for the Construction Industry, then CMiC is for you. There are many other solutions out there, but only a handful that integrates financials into project management. The advantage of this is that you get real-time, accurate financial data along with Project Management without the need for 3rd party integrations.

I used CMiC for project management including, but not limited to, submittals, RFIs, document control, tracking safety issues in the field, and monthly billings to the owner/client. CMiC Project Management also sends us email notifiers if we were paid, if an RFI was responded to, and/or if a submittal package was approved by the design team.
  • Organization.
  • Approving of misc. invoices/sub invoices in workflow.
  • Notifications.
  • Making sense of billing to the owner.
  • User interface.
  • Ease of use for 3rd party design team/owners.
CMiC Project Management is a web-based database for project management. My team used it for tracking RFIs, submittal package approvals, safety issues in the field, and mainly billings. My project team was the first team at our company to formally use CMiC Project Management for 100% of the owner billings, instead of partially outside the system (excel) as previously project teams used. My lead PM ran into a lot of issues and glitches with this aspect of CMiC Project Management.

  • Handling RFI's.
  • Reporting Tools.
  • Creating Workflows.
  • Lacking an estimation function.
  • Scheduling tools need some improvements.
  • Needs optimization for older devices.
CMiC Construction Platform excels in dealing with tasks that are related to the construction sites in the core. For example, CMiC Construction Platform gathers all Requests for Information (RFI's) of the project in a single centralized location. This allows the engineers to have better follow up on these RFI's especially when multiple RFI's are connected. On the other hand, when it comes to variation orders (VO's) the program has a slight disadvantage when compared to other alternatives.

CMiC is our ERP platform to consolidate everything in one database, from the initial lead through the sales process through the final warranty in the construction process. It is also our filing and data storage system, as well as our communication platform with our external clients and business partners, all in a cloud format that allows for multiple site access, critical for the transfer of information among scattered job locations. This software helps us implement SOPs for all of our processes, and then provides insights through its measurement capacity and Business Intelligence reporting functionality.
  • Data collection & retention.
  • Management process & intuitive interfaces.
  • Robust and flexible accounting features.
  • Implementation and training process.
  • Bid management process.
  • Use of all hardware platforms (MAC and PC).
This software is appropriate when you're looking for a completely integrated ERP for the construction management process—multiple projects across multiple vendors and collaborators. It is less appropriate for trade contractors who don't have the burden of managing multiple subcontracts, or multiple collaborators, and would be overkill for their typical construction process.

We use CMIC to manage our subcontracts, Change Orders, RFIs, submittals, Transmittals, daily logs, and most of all of our project documentation. All of our superintendents and project managers use CMIC. We do not have the financial side of CMIC right now, but have been talking about it however some of our management is not comfortable with switching from the financial software that we currently have and some are also not comfortable with having our financial software be on the cloud, some of them prefer to have all of the financial information stored locally on our accountant's computer and not even on our company network. Right now we are not utilizing CMIC as much as we could and I would like to try and get the company to use it more. I really like the software and it was much less expensive than other applications. The CMIC support has been really good at times but early on it was a bit rough. We had some issues getting a good response from support but for the most part, I have been very satisfied with their support folks. The user interface is similar to that of other project management software applications so folks in our company that had previously used other applications have been able to switch over fairly easily.

  • I really like the software and it was much less expensive than other applications.
  • I like the mobile application so that our superintendents can view the documentation on their phones.
  • I really like the punch list capability mobile field, however, we have a hard time getting our superintendents to use it for some reason.
  • We have had issues with their support from time to time but recently they have been great.
  • They have had quite a few times where the system and features have gone down or been available over the past year or two but before that, it was always good with no problems.
  • I wish there was an easier way to customize all of the forms and reports and not have to only use Excel or Word MIP templates.

We use CMIC to integrate our accounting and construction management operations.
  • Tracks contracts and change orders.
  • Tracks owner changer orders.
  • Supports monthly billing using AIA type documents.
  • The platform is large so operation is pretty slow.
  • Field management (daily reports, material tracking) is a little bulky and hard to use.
  • Invoicing can be a little glitchy.
The CMiC Construction platform works well for tracking costs and financials. It makes job buyout relatively easy. It does not work as well with field management. The daily report module is not particularly user-friendly for field personnel.
