Overall Satisfaction with Vista by Viewpoint

We use Vista by Viewpoint for project costing, payroll, invoicing, etc. As a construction firm, [we use] Vista by Viewpoint tracking project costs, subcontracts, and change orders. Having all of this data in custom reports helps track the costs effectively.
  • Custom reports
  • Financial accuarcy
  • Managing change orders
  • Hard to learn to use
  • RFI, Submittals, Drawing logs
  • Not being able to integrate with field operations
  • Accurate project costing
  • Managing change orders
  • Integration with our payment software has been helpful
We evaluated a few different software options [including] Procore and Trimble ProjectSight and decided Vista by Viewpoint best suited our needs and the price was good.

Do you think Viewpoint Vista delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Viewpoint Vista's feature set?


Did Viewpoint Vista live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Viewpoint Vista go as expected?


Would you buy Viewpoint Vista again?


Once you learn to use Vista by Viewpoint, it is good. The implementation was a little rough but once we began learning how the different modules worked together we were in better shape. We wanted a lot of customizing done so that may have slowed the process a bit.
Vista by Viewpoint's support can take a while sometimes. The online database doesn't always point you to the problem therefore you have to reach out to a live person to get an answer.
Vista by Viewpoint is good for cost reporting. Vista by Viewpoint is not that great for project management and field integration. We use separate software to manage the project.
