Overall Satisfaction with CMiC Construction Platform

As a small, commercial Construction Manager and General Contractor, the CMiC Construction Platform is being implemented by most of our whole organization. We have in house I.T., accounting, contract administration, and construction project teams. We currently use CMiC as part of our construction project teams management of our projects.

Using CMiC to help administer our projects allows the office and field to consistently be on the same page. Daily information is being constantly updated and it helps keep the flow of information in one, reliable place. In an industry that's almost gone paperless, it's key to keep all the project information in an online file that can be accessed by all members of the project team.

Our company went from the old school way of yellow tablets and excel spreadsheets before finding a construction management program. We read many reviews, sat through many demos, and discussed the best options for our needs. Our final three (3) options we looked at were Procore, CMiC, and RedTeam. The opportunities, flexibility, and pricing is how we decided to go with CMiC.
The support is an area that can be improved. All support is done through tickets and attachments, with an occasional phone call mixed in. Answers are often movie snips or manuals for work done by the customer. Support is also not available 24/7 like other places. When you do have issues, there is automation so you know it's being processed.

The people that work in support are friendly and knowledgeable, but the overall delivery could be improved.

The CMiC platform has allowed us to spend less labor hours on project administration. We're not only getting bang for our buck, but it's helping us reduce support staff hours. It also helps with workflow through automated reminders and responsibility notifications. It also keeps a record of when revisions are made and by who made them. The break crumb trail is very helpful when looking at the cycle or history of an item.
For what you pay and what the opportunities can be, CMiC Construction Platform is cost effective way to help streamline your construction company and its operations. Use as many of the modules as you see fit, or just use a specific tool. They're constantly updating and trying to improve their products. They have multiple user platforms and groups for their clients to collaborate, share ideas, and voice opinions. CMiC is a value that can be a big asset to companies big and small.
Whether it's in the field, or in the office, the CMiC Construction Platform is well suited for daily project management of construction projects. From a project inception, to project closeout, the tools and modules available will help keep your project running smoothly. All aspects of the construction process can be tracked and accessed for real time information.

CMiC is a very robust program and we haven't explored all of the modules that are available to us at this point.
