  • 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  • CMiC needs to work on the very outdated labor transfer platform.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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

CMiC at a Glance

  • 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.
