Overall Satisfaction with CMiC Construction Platform

We use the CMiC Construction Platform across the whole organization. It has brought synergy to our business in collaboratively being able to better communicate and produce exceptional business results to our internal and external customers.
  • The budget process for jobs is exceptional at keeping track and modifying when needed.
  • The mobile feature is exceptional to use in tracking employees.
  • ECM utilization with drawing management is phenomenal at modifying updating and notating changes/comments.
  • Financial Position in the CMiC analytics is a helpful tool
  • Implementation
  • Importing documents: some of the templates are not functioning correctly
  • Security: too many areas and not one source for control
  • Improved workflow
  • Better project management
  • Team Collaboration
  • Streamlined Financials
CMiC was more robust and met more of our needs in comparison to Foundation Software;
Could be a little better at updating information on the help site.

This has been beneficial to the company as a whole due to the functionality of the software to integrate the multiple modules and processes that intertwine to produce a positive outcome from our projects reporting finances and productivity.

From a financial perspective, CMiC Construction Platform is very helpful to put the analytics in place to see at a glance the projections and actuals of the company's business. We do like the project management field side for our Engineers to be able to access drawings and make notable changes.

Evaluating CMiC Construction Platform and Competitors

Yes - Quickbooks; it was very inefficient in providing critical data for our business operations.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
  • Analyst Reports
  • Third-party Reviews
The product features shown during the demo was most impressive and exactly what we were looking for in our business.
Asking more questions regarding the implementation as there was some confusion.

CMiC Construction Platform Implementation

Lots of confusion between sales and implementation regarding what was included and not included...the security encountered a "bug" and made it extremely difficult to set up roles and individual responsibilities.
Change management was a minor issue with the implementation - All was great with exception of security user maintenance and setup.

Yes - Security issue that is currently being worked out
I was disgruntled about a "training session" as it produced nothing but errors without the trainer being able to resolve. I contacted the Sales, Implementation Manager and the VP came in on the call to help provide a team of experts that could and did resolve the problems.
