Vista by Viewpoint is used across the company. This includes core accounting functions such as AP, AR, Payroll, GL. It is used by Operations for project cost controls and purchasing, field time collection, and progress tracking. Our service department uses the Service module for dispatching, work order logging, contract management and customer billing. An extensive Safety program has been built on the software, which allows full integration with project and employee info.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We utilize Vista throughout the entire organization to managing our GL, AP, AR, EM, JC, JB, PM, HR, IM and UD. We have been using Vista with integration to our field data capture for over 5 years. Vista gives ample methods for getting external data into the application, which is very useful during initial setup as well as ongoing integration.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Vista mainly for accounting, our whole organization inputs data but the accounting department are the #1 users in our company. It keeps our project managers on-time and on-budget for our projects by displaying any issues before they become huge problems. Reports and dashboards keep us office folks up-to-date on what's happening in the field.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Vista is currently being used mainly by our office staff, but as we implement Keystyle and Viewpoint Team, it's moving across the entire company. Viewpoint itself is very customizable. We've added plenty of additional fields and some tables. Keystyle is amazing. Keystyle is allowing us to go more and more paperless, while also pushing documents directly into Vista. Team we've just purchased, so I can't go into that much, but it should be extremely helpful for our field.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Vista is a great software that allows users to easily enter and access information pertinent to their roles. Vista also has a great tool that allows users to search a database of information and see tutorials based on what they are searching for. The customer service is not the best at times, so this database of information is very helpful.

We use Vista by Viewpoint (VP) across all departments. It has created a lot of efficiencies and collaboration. We came from a 2 system environment which created a lot of duplicate work. We also use VP Team.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Vista by Viewpoint is used as our main project management software. Project Managers, Project Engineers, Project Assistants, & Project Accountants are the main daily users, but other users have access to the software and occasionally will utilize it. The problem it is used to address is documentation and project management through the course of a construction project. It excels in some instances but falls short in others.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Vista is our company wide ERP. We utilize almost all the modules of the core product such as Accounting, HR, Job Cost, Project Management and many others. In addition we have purchased several of the add-on integrated solutions to compliment the product such as Team, HR Management, Field Management and cloud hosting in the VEC environment. Through Vista and the add-ons almost every person in the company uses it daily or weekly.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use it for payroll time entry and keeping hours worked matched up with job numbers and pay rates. Also use it to monitor fuel type used and for which piece of equipment or vehicle. For meter entries to keep up with when maintenance is due on equipment/vehicles. Since we use it with the cloud it addresses all sorts of business issues such as things getting turned in on time and not getting lost.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Vista to track job costs, billings, productivity and other user-defined data points. We use something called regions at our company that drives a lot of JC reporting for us. That is defined by a user-defined table and user-defined fields. This ability of Viewpoint to allow major customization to their product to allow us to run our business how we want to is very helpful to us.

My company uses Vista by Viewpoint to track cost, change management, invoicing, and hourly employee time entry.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Viewpoint across our whole organization (minus workers in the field). We are in the Process of Implementing Field Management where we will have even more users inputting data into the system. Viewpoint allows us to track costs, quantities, and so much more from the field. We then can calculate cost and revenue projections at project completion to make sure we are staying on budget. We input data into many different places, and all of that information can feed into one report that gives us a snapshot of how each project is doing month to month.

Vista by Viewpoint is GBI's go to software to manage all aspects of our company, from AP to PM to PR to GL and all that is in between. It helps with increasing our cash-flow, our project profitability, employee - development, empowerment, and fulfillment. HR Management, Field Management, and Financial Controls solutions are exactly what our field employees and managers have been screaming for. I often hear "They Just Work!" and "They are so easy to learn and use!" from our field employees

We have implemented Viewpoint across the board, and it is our sole accounting software. We use it for HR/PR/AP/PO/AR/EM/Jobs/Contracts/PM/Inventory and much more. We love the flexibility. We can add custom fields onto any of the standard forms. We can also build custom databases that can link to everything else.
