Overall Satisfaction with HCSS

The company utilizes HCSS HeavyJob to track and analyze daily costs and production quantities. It is provided companywide; however, adoption and use of the product to full capacity is definitely not reflected in the data.
  • Production costs
  • Production tracking
  • Equipment allocations
  • Appears complicated at initial onset; messy interface
  • Not very user friendly, even after training
  • Cumbersome when used in conjunction with other platforms
  • Forecasting
  • Production
The company utilizes several platforms to achieve their overall project control goals.

Do you think HCSS delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with HCSS's feature set?

Yes

Did HCSS live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of HCSS go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy HCSS again?

Yes

As mentioned, user interface appears messy and complicated at initial onset. Training is necessary but becomes easy to maneuver through after solid daily use.
Top notch. The support is very thorough when used. HCSS will stay on the phone with you, circle back after researching, whatever it takes in order to work through any issue.
HCSS HeavyJob is a great program that caters to, well, heavy jobs! Being what seems to be the only software for heavy civil construction, it makes sense to the company, and with good reason. HeavyJob has some really great features: the production reporting and forecasting are vital field tools that, when used as intended, can put your teams ahead of schedule, provide invaluable information on where the lag is or keys on how to pick up production for the next day/week, all in real time.
