Overall Satisfaction with CMiC Construction Platform

CMiC is being used across our organization.

-redundancy of data entry
-chance of errors
-inter-department communication
-produces timely reports
-standardizes our procedures

-most things are pretty easy to learn, however there are certain parts of the system that are not intuative
-not all error messages are clear
-a lot of the reports that we need to create/alter cannot be done using MIP, and it can be quite costly, and the turn around time is very slow

Despite the cons, I would still give CMiC a 7.5/10. All ERP systems will have their drawbacks, the important thing is that the positives outweigh the negatives, and I believe CMiC easily does that.
  • Tracks Financial Health
  • Fully integrates Finance and Project Delivery
  • Allows for collaboration through IO email with Third Parties
  • Reduces data entry
  • Adds the perfect level of controls
  • Issues can take some time to be fixed
  • Customization can be expensive
  • Not user "friendly" - takes time to learn
  • Error messages are not always clear
  • Increased profitability through cost tracking.
  • Time Savings have increased productivity.
  • Project forecasting has never been easier, as PMs have the data at their fingertips.
Customer support is great at responding (for the most part), however I still believe it takes too long to resolve issues. Certain issues are not considered "urgent" can sit for months. Even when we pay for custom things to be added, we find ourselves waiting quite a while to get things up and running.

Would you buy CMiC Construction Platform again?


It meets the majority of our needs. It works best on larger projects, where the full breadth of CMiC can be utilized properly. On shorter projects it can seem more time consuming than beneficial fully utilizing everything CMiC has to offer.

It also works best it you have a dedicated CMiC team to help roll out and support users.
