Overall Satisfaction with CMiC Construction Platform
CMiC Construction Platform is being used by the entire organization. It is primarily used for field management and reporting back to the office. Daily Journals, Submittals, and photos make up the main uses for CMiC. We also use it for Request for Information (RFIs), which help us get on the fly answers from owners and architects.
- We are still struggling to see the advantage
- Hoping for additional upgrades to improve user expierence
- GUI still needs improvement
Procore is still my top management tool. The interface is easier to understand/but more importantly, easier to teach to novice users. CMiC and PlanGrid would tie for 2nd. CMiC has a very old school database feel to it that is hard to teach. If the user interface can be upgraded and more user friendly, CMiC has potential.
The interface is the main problem. People who are not familiar with how a database works are the ones who struggle to use this product. Upgrade the GUI and I believe users will have a more positive experience--fewer steps to get a picture uploaded, easier ways of viewing photos/reports, one-click technology.
Do you think CMiC Construction Platform delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with CMiC Construction Platform's feature set?
Did CMiC Construction Platform live up to sales and marketing promises?
I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process
Did implementation of CMiC Construction Platform go as expected?
I wasn't involved with the implementation phase
Would you buy CMiC Construction Platform again?
There is potential for this software to get on the same playing field as Procore and other management platforms (PlanGrid, etc). For construction, the CMiC GUI can be quite difficult for novice users. I highly recommend making this more user-friendly, and I can see CMiC Construction Platform gaining traction in the industry.
