Overall Satisfaction with Viewpoint Spectrum

We use Spectrum as our accounting software company-wide. We have three separate entities that we run so having Spectrum be the common denominator for all our accounting needs makes it easy for our management and staff to have info at their fingertips.
  • AP - we can run reports to show outstanding balances by the vendor or by the project. This helps our PM's know exactly where their budgets are by line item.
  • Job Cost - real-time information can be provided by our accounting staff for project cost reviews.
  • HR - being able to track certifications and training by an employee is very helpful, especially when we hire new employees who bring their documents with them.
  • HR - although we can track the training and certifications, the available 'canned' reports don't give us a lot of useful information.
  • By having one platform to run three different entities, it is so much easier to be able to review each company because we process the information in the same way for each one. This saves time because job cost reports can be reviewed at a glance without having to compare and contrast between different report types.
Spectrum does so much with easy entry, data retrieval, and detailed reports. Our accounting staff are able to answer questions, provide information, and give summary or detail as requested.
When setting up different entities, we were able to copy over the basic structure and employees, vendors, etc as needed which made the process relatively easier than anticipated.
There are a lot of modules that we don't use to their full potential which is just a matter of training for specific users. Spectrum provides real-time in-person training, webinars, and online sessions for just about every topic we have been interested in.
