  • Very easy to use.
  • Can search with any keyword.
  • Links people to items or equipment and jobs.
  • The onboarding has a few glitches, and not everything transfers to the spectrum—some manual steps are still required to enter.
  • Have item tracking not linked directly in HR - so non-HR members can issue and return items.

  • Creating Reports about our profits for our different office locations
  • Tracking change orders
  • Customization of status for COs & Subcontracts
  • The user interface is a bit rough, and can be difficult to find things/navigate through the pages.
  • Would be nice to have the option to have a separate page for Sub COs & Client COs, right now they are all tracked on the same page.
  • Signature lines on the Purchase Orders would be beneficial because we currently have to add them to the PDF in a different software.

  • pull together equipment and inventory results
  • makes writing and tracking checks so easy
  • Detailed reports makes finding specifics very easy
  • The order of things could be better sometimes I'm working backwards
  • document imaging isn't always clear and working

  • nothing in my opinion
  • help menus
  • reporting
  • In my opinion, un-user friendly
  • In my opinion, the initial set-up and training a joke
  • Had to "pay" for help that we shouldn't have to pay for in my opinion.
  • Screens can't tab to fields; non existent shortcuts; have to "mouse" fields and hilight or nothing can be entered in my experience. Extremely inefficient in my opinion.
  • In my experience, Retention doesn't show on Draw Billing screen unless you "override" retention on every line item. Otherwise, you can't see the amounts on the screen in my experience.
  • In my experience I can't adjust "templates" to delete fields not used; e.i tax

  • You can make different note sections.
  • You can rearrange columns to show the data you want.
  • Inefficient (think multiple things have to be clicked to view/edit).
  • In my opinion little to no automation or notification capacity.
  • The search function rarely yields the results you want.

  • Scheduling - being able to drag items around and drop into a schedule is nice
  • Having an app to go with the computer software
  • Being able to search by name, address or anything
  • The app seems to have a lot of issues currently. It likes to log people out and lock them out, especially when bouncing from wifi to cell service
  • The billing can be cumbersome
  • Looking at images takes a long time to load each one, cant just download all of them

  • Well organized job layout/Easy to navigate to necessary components of a project
  • Comprehensive accounting software
  • Construction management software provides easy access to drawings & specifications for field employees.
  • UI is fairly bland and monotonous, so it is easy to get lost in drop down menus

  • Security is well thought out, users can be extremely locked down or have very specific access down to a certain job or department.
  • They're trying to expand so that users don't need to integrate other products
  • Support isn't readily available. You can submit a ticket and wait days before it's picked up. Even critical issues (system outages) can wait an hour or two before someone responds.
  • Large companies will feel limited. This product wasn't designed to handle large amounts of data, and performance seems to slow when there are more than 80 concurrent users.
  • The new developments are limited. HR Management is less robust than a third-party product specializing in HR Management. Viewpoint Analytics is nowhere near as robust as Power BI or Tableau.

  • The software has a great user interface and new users find the software easy to learn.
  • Importing data is relatively straightforward with the use of data exchange.
  • There are a variety of third-party applications that integrate well with the software.
  • The user interface for job cost projections seems to not have been updated for decades and is very difficult to use.
  • There is no way to automatically allocate overhead cost to jobs based on hours charged or percentage of cost.
  • Most users purchase third-party financial reporting software.

  • Module Integration
  • Clear, concise reporting
  • Secure Single Sign On Capability
  • Subcontract Kiosk can be glitchy - allows subs to overbill on subcontract billing items
  • Document Imaging can be glitchy - often says users do not have adequate security to view/add documents, but they do - if they sign out and back in, it works fine
  • At times, support can be lacking - sometimes case responses are delayed or you get an incorrect answer
