We have used Viewpoint ProContractor for 11 Years to manage all departments of our General Contracting company
  • Integrates all departments
  • We just changed over to the cloud based system. In my opinion, it a disaster- It does not work
  • Program is not responding- complete company shutdown
  • Tech support is not responding
Its a great program when it works. In my opinion, the cloud based system that Trimble is pushing is broke. We changed from in house server to the cloud 2 weeks ago. Since then the system has been down three complete days. Despite reporting a complete company shut down, Tech support took over 24 hours to get to our "Ticket"

We use it for accounting, dispatching, keep track of workorders and job.
  • Purchase Orders
  • Job Tracking
  • Accounting
  • Only thing is not knowing to not add hyphens, if you add one codes for purchase orders do not apper,
The amount of PO's we have going, its nice to be able to type a job name if you cannot remember the number. Or vice versa. I learned a new trick the other day to see all parts ordered for the job instead of having to look through individual PO's which is amazing.

I use Viewpoint Pro Contractor daily to help me stay organized with all the projects that we have currently and on going. It helps me stay on top of supplies that I need to order, schedule appointments with sub contractors. It also helps me find bills that need paid. I am able to see what sub contractors need to send me updated information for their liability insurance to make sure we can pay them on time.
  • They help keep me organized to see what job are coming up as well as ones in progress.
  • They help me see my bills that need to be paid to vendors.
  • They help me find invoices from us that still need to be paid.
  • Expanding the amount of information about a job to be entered.
  • More online classes about latest greatest tips.
  • Being able to set alerts for customers when their information is expired
The Viewpoint ProContractor is great. I am able to see everything I need to help our company be successful. I am able to look at a list of jobs that have not started, jobs in progress and jobs complete that are ready for billing. I have the ability's to look up customers quick and easily for their information anytime I need.

ProContractor is used as our primary business ERP for both company level and corporate level accounting. We utilize the accounting features, the payroll features, the project cost accounting features, the vendor management (compliance and contracting) features, and some select project management features. We do not use the estimating, equipment, or materials features.
  • Performs most project cost accounting features required.
  • Performs vendor contract management well.
  • Allows for multi-company/division and intercompany accounting.
  • The program is siloed, so connecting to other software or databases is not going to happen.
  • When hosted, the program can run slow.
  • The program is not going to perform complex accounting tasks with subledgers.
  • The program does not do much in terms of HR other than payroll.
ProContractor is a great fit if you are looking to make the jump to an ERP (accounting) system that offers a higher level of complexity and controls than what QuickBooks or Xero have to offer. However, some of those increased features of accounting controls, vendor compliance management, project contracting and documentation, come at the cost of lost integrations. ProContractor is completely siloed and does not openly communicate with other platforms (project management, bank accounts, etc).

ViewPoint ProContractor is our main accounting software for handling job cost management. Our accounting department spends the most time with the software but project managers and engineers use it to help track job costs and budgets. Idea is to create PO's and track purchase to be able to understand the current and proected costs of your project.
  • Lots of reports available to generate
  • Software processes run very slowly
  • PO receipting can be cumbersome, especially if you have to make changes on the fly.
ViewPoint ProContractor provides lots of options and seems to have the ability to handle most tasks required for the accounting department as well as for project managers. Overall the system is cumbersome and a lot of time can be lost trying to work through the software and find areas/options that are needed. Limited in handling unexpected changes though this is probably by design but does not suit our needs as a site contractor with ever changing needs. While they do respond to comments and add new features the process is slow.

The product was used across the organization in operations, however, we have transitioned to another product that was a bit more user-friendly. ProContractor was a great software because it required no energy to integrate with our Viewpoint accounting system, however, just like Vista, it was still glaringly obvious to most users that it was developed specifically with accounting in mind. While this is important, it was more important for us to have software that was project management based that could integrate with accounting rather than use something that felt "accounting-ish" in nature.
  • Accounting.
  • Budgeting.
  • More of a project management "vibe".
  • Less spreadsheet and complex processes to do things.
I think it might work for smaller contractors that have less stringent management requirements, policies, and procedures. To get buy-in from project managers to use, it would need to be a little bit more user-friendly, but if your biggest concern was project accounting, this is a great tool. Smaller projects often have lower levels of RFI and submittal requirements, fewer subcontractors and commitments, etc. meaning that where this software is weaker, they will have less use for it anyway.

Viewpoint ProContractor is used at our company for earthwork and large area takeoffs. It is used in our estimating department and is then used to help our crews understand the site when working on the project. ProContractor is able to speed up the takeoffs when a CAD file is available for direct import.
  • Procontractor is great with direct imports from CAD files.
  • It is great with balancing sites or specific areas on site.
  • Procontractor has multiple views and reports that help you to view the dirt movement on the site (grid, profile, 3D).
  • Procontractor could do better with the quality of plan images it allows for importing in. We have plan sheets that will be downgraded in quality once imported. This makes the contour lines difficult to trace and see.
  • Takeoffs for trenching could be added with greater detail options (cut classes, etc.).
Procontractor is well suited for earthwork takeoffs, but not as well suited for pipework & cut class takeoffs.
