Overall Satisfaction with CMiC Construction Platform

CMiC Construction Platform is used for managing expectations on the job site across the country for management to understand what is going on, on a daily basis.
  • Simplicity of reporting.
  • Collaboration.
  • Process Flow.
  • Accounting.
  • Meeting expectations.
  • Support.
  • Improved field reporting.
  • Improved accounting functionality and workflow.
  • Decreased mobile field expectations.
This was a major selling point. The whole process is within one application. Adhering and the ability to adjust to our individual needs were another factor that played into the decision. It's a matter of meeting and delivering on expectations on newly enhanced modules. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and I hope we can all get there.
I gave this rating a 9 as the overall product is scalable for our business. The ability to add users and work with the CMiC Construction Platform to increase productivity is our main goal. They provide a substance application that is reliable, we use it. Cannot wait to see what future enhancements they bring to the table.

Using CMiC Construction Platform

70 - Field users, to Project Management, to Safety Directors, to Plan Production, to Accounting, to VP, and President. They all have a usage purpose to see what exactly is happening at each and every project.
1 - Someone who is tech savvy. Such as a Business Analyst with a touch of System Administrator background. The level of support provided needs to be interpreted from CMiC to management. And visa versa. When a system needs enhancing or changed, the BA would need to quantify the distinctness of the change and find means to. All while making sure accounting and field users are still doing their daily jobs.
  • Field Reporting to PM's
  • Accounting to PM and visa versa (invoices)
  • Plan Production to Project Engineers (drawings)
  • PM's to upper management (tracking of finances)
  • Simplicity (removing unnecessary items)
  • UX
  • Enhancing the Mobile App
This is a platform that would continue to be in the best interest for our company. I just hope that CMiC support removes the gaps between the enhancements that they create to better the system to what they currently have.

Evaluating CMiC Construction Platform and Competitors

Yes - ICPM. This was a mom and pop manufactured online service. When I came on board it was either CMiC or Procore.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Product features include an all around function between everyone. From field, to management, to accounting, to upper management. Usability in that you can use the product on most devices was another key component of the decision.
Don't get over hyped about their mobile field application......just yet. It's not there to be used reliably on a daily basis...... YET.

CMiC Construction Platform Implementation

Within six month, I was able to learn the system, apply the necessary changes and get this company onto the CMiC platform without missing a beat.
Yes - We had a particular unique case where we had to implement in random order than the normal roll out of the product. Because we needed the field side of the house completed first, then accounting, drew a lot of complexity in the implementation.
Change management was minimal

CMiC Construction Platform Support

Quick Resolution
Knowledgeable team
Kept well informed
Poor followup
Escalation required
Need to explain problems multiple times
Support doesn't seem to care
We are on the cloud and therefor a small tiny fish in a big pond of other fishes that have their own issues and problems.
Yes - I had bugs from the time we started 3 years ago. Most of our issues are mobile application related. To which they had to reconstruct the whole application from the ground up. So the level of confidence that a freshly constructed application would work out of the box, is not plausible. It's now a matter of when they are able to fix the application to meet the needs of today's use.
Mary Jo was our account representative. She would fight for our support tickets to be looked at and be resolved. We miss her.
They need to work on expectations. When enhancing a module, they have been known to deliver gaps between the new enhancement and the old one. The support is no longer available as they direct their full attention on the enhancement part while leaving the gap in between those projects empty. This causes issues and discrepancies.

Yes - Yes, but it doesn't work. Well sort of. They had to reconstruct the application from the ground up. To expect the application to work right out of the box for how CMiC mobile application division would be an outright miracle. They don't meet expectations and sell on functionality that is years away from being manufactured.
It is a very easy to use system. When you remove all the additional fluff that other cloud based companies use, and simplify the user's experience, the platform works exceptionally well.
