Pros: The accounting department likes it. For overall billing workflow it is pretty simple. Also, the customer service attentiveness is great. They are always there to chat to try to solve the inevitable problems.

Cons: Where to begin... Useless for Submittals, RFIs, Daily Reports, Meeting Minutes, PCO Tracking. Double, triple, and even quadruple work for each. The interface is unattractive, the button sensitivity requires the skill of a surgeon. No sorting is available. Menus are not intuitive and different reports are located in different places. Each week (it seems) there is a new glitch, a poorly conceived or implemented update, or some other quirk that requires a day long chat session to resolve. This is the fourth project management software I have used, and I honestly try to stay out of it as much as possible for everything I do as a PM. Unfortunately it must be used for our billings and front end budgets. Perhaps if your firm runs only small tenant fitout type work it may be exactly what you need. Anything larger than that though exposes its multiple and egregious weaknesses.

The implementation team is fantastic! The system brings so much professionalism to our business!

Pros: It's simple to use for those not super tech savvy. The team at Paskr is incredibly responsive and helpful at implementing the system. Using default items for bid assembly items saves an incredible amount of time and the bid notes. Oh the bid notes. Subs should never not know what they are doing. You can also use these as a work order for in house work. All in all, an amazing system!

Cons: There is a lot of set up. Building templates and cost code assembly defaults is very time consuming but saves a ton of time on the back end.

Overall: We have officially removed ourselves from spreadsheet! This makes every job we have mobile not only for administration but also for our field guys.

Pros: Designed by a contractor for contractors. The training and support are awesome. Works with Quickbooks.

Cons: Only thing is that the timesheet feature does not have a GPS stamp to verify location during mobile application timesheet or job check in.

Overall: more time, better project control, better management, better scheduling, better sub contractor management

Cons: Nothing yet, other than then lack of gps phone location of timesheet entering on mobile app. Would be nice to have that feature for verification of employee location.

Overall: Time, accuracy, control of projects, supervision, tracking, scheduling, all aspects of our business has been improved.

Comments: I highly recommend Paskr and their corporate team for your construction project management and estimating system. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Customer service is second to none. Very personalized and paced so you get the information into the system as you learn how to use it. The people i have dealt with have all been great, from sales, to teaching, etc. They include cost codes like we use, they downloaded our subcontractor, suppliers, and customers from our Outlook so we could hit the ground running. The platform is very clean and well laid out. They think the way contractors do, not the way programmers do. The phone/table application is simple but very efficient and powerful for any level of user in the field, from laborer to foreman to project manager.

Pros: It can add, subtract and do percentages, but not such a big deal. I really DO NOT care for this program. Might be good for a general contractor, but not for sub contractor. I will pass on Paskr billing on future jobs!

Cons: You are at the mercy of the general contractor and he will have to tell you when to bill. I want to send in invoices when I am done with the job, not in two weeks when everyone else is complete. What is wrong with regular invoicing?

Overall: NO Benefits

Vendor Response

by Paskr on May 24, 2017

When the Subcontractor bills, in this case, as soon as the GC approves the invoice a Lien Release is sent to the Sub for signature and notary stamp, then can upload the Lien back into Paskr. The GC does have to approve the receipt of the Lien Release prior to the Sub being able to submit a new bill. The Sub is notified once the GC approves the Lien Release and is notified that they can proceed with billing via email. The benefit to the Sub lies in that it makes the paperwork process for the GC much faster when standardized and simplified. Thus allows the GC to spend more time focusing on getting new business instead of being bogged down with paperwork. Thus, providing more work for Subcontractors.

Great Project Software!

Comments: PASKR has been amazing to work with throughout the process. We are still learning the software but are getting training as we need it and any time we need it. We are implementing it slowly by projects to try to get the most out of it.

Pros: Great interface - great time saver! Powerful from job setup and bidding all through the project to project closeout. Great online easy access from anywhere Great app for Site Superintendents

Cons: It is a little confusing at first in the submittals. Would like a custom report writer to adjust some of the reports.

Easy even if you forget a step - live chat is right there.

Comments: Hope more contractors use this instead of a lot of hard copy paperwork for invoicing.

Pros: It's not intimidating. The screens ask for just the basic info required. Doesn't require uploading docs.

Cons: I just don't use it but a few times a year and often forget one basic step (to click on Project Status first).

Pros: Portability, access from anywhere, anytime, and that it limits the bells and whistles and focuses on project management needs.

Cons: Doing drawing changes in the field is a little cumbersome, but maybe its not meant for just anyone to easily make drawing changes since they are official documents.

Overall: Over the years we have been using Paskr, they continue to improve our experience. From the field, all project information is easily accessible and daily reporta are a breeze because of the mobile apps. In the office, it is a powerful solution from project conception to closeout, handling and keeping all contracts, POs, change orders, submittals, drawings and drawing changes. All of our subcontractors present their bids, submittals, execute contracts, change orders and submit pay apps and lien releases in the system. Our AE folks respond to submittals and RFIs with ease. Its all paperless and immediate.
I love that a change order can be made and executed within 5 minutes, even from the field. I love that RFIs can be made in the field and responded to by the required parties, even from a smart phone. And Paskr keeps up with all of it electronically significantly reducing clerical time.

Comments: The problems I have with PASKR are related to the fact that the real world doesn't always follow the best practice model. We often estimate for budget, go to contract, release a few subs then go back and put the project out to bid after the CD's are complete. There is no way to go back to the same project and fill in the blanks. I realize this is not a best practice but it is the fast paced world we live in here in this booming time in our city. The format is not very intuitive and when you go from one Task to another during the course of a day on different projects it can be difficult to remember which ones require you to check a box or not to save something. I have lost several RFI's after entering data because I didnt check a box before i moved to a different screen. That is time lost.

Dear Jennifer, Thank you for your feedback as your opinions are very valuable to us. We take feedback and use it while we update Paskr as we continue to make it a better product. In response to your comments: The tools in Paskr are there to help minimize the risk for the GC. The rigidity that you are experiencing, in not being able to Subcontract on a project prior to Owner Contracts being signed, is protecting the GC from entering into contracts with Subs prior to the Owner agreeing contractually to the project. The process is such in Paskr so that it can be replicated over and over, project after project, to make sure that the GC is in control of the flow of information at all times, and to minimize errors and omissions. We consider this to be one of Paskr¿s strengths. Kind Regards, Paskr Team

Comments: I had never heard of Paskr (P for short) until I started at a new company. I use P for Project Management and some estimating/bidding tasks. There are a couple of things that P does well but many things it does bad or isn't user friendly AT ALL. For example: 1. The menus are all slightly different and organized different. In one menu "pay applications" are called " billing". And "meeting minutes" are called "project minutes". Who calls them that? 2. The menus are all very sensitive to rolling your mouse over/down them. I am forced to go very slowly to navigate where I want to. 3. When building an estimate I cannot arbitrarily rename a cost code if the description isn't really accurate. I also cannot use the same cost code multiple times. I might want to do that if I am breaking an estimate down into multiple phases or areas. 4. Estimating is very rigid and not user friendly for reporting how estimates evolve from conceptual through final bidding. When you do create an invited bidders' list it will invite subs for multiple cost codes unless you tell it otherwise...every single time. This is a product of our sub data base being overpopulated with subcontractors performing work associated with multiple cost codes. But, for example, to assign a subcontractor only one division 5 cost code and not all division 5 cost codes I have to remove him from all the other Div 5 codes that I may be using in the estimate. 5. When I right change orders to the subs they are not grouped together but only in sequential order. And if I write an Owner CO with the sub CO's grouped together they show up in different parts of the screen so if I'm looking for a subs' last CO I have to look in two different places 6. Meeting minutes are horrible. You cannot simply create a new/updates status for items that get tracked from meeting to meeting. 7. Generating my Owner billing can be a huge pain because it will not let you bill more than a SOV line item has left in it. What if I needed or was required to bill more in Div 6 and less in Div 12? The only way to do that would be via creating a change order and then billing the added/subtracted amounts under a CO heading. 8. Reporting is a joke. One of the easiest and most often used reports is a "committed cost report". It doesn't exist when you go to the "reports" tab. However, you can print one if you go to the Purchase Order tab and run a report through that module. Stupid. Now for something good: 1. Reviewing and approving subcontractor billings is easy 2. Paskr will automatically pull in subcontractor billings into my Owner billing which can be handy or a pain in the ass if you want to do something different. 3. RFI's are relatively easy to create, but who can screw that up? 4. Writing subcontracts is pretty effortless. Although, writing a subcontract to a cost code that wasn't in your final estimate can be a pain in the ass to make happen. And you cannot write a subcontract/PO to a vendor who doesn't have that particular cost code associated to him already. Overall, P is rigid and not user friendly or flexible to how different Project Managers want to set up and run our jobs. I have used Timberline in the past and although Timberline is poor when it comes to customer support I would beg, borrow, or steal to have it over Paskr. I cuss P every single day and I use it for as few things as my company will allow. My number 1 goal for next year is to try and get away from Paskr.

Recommendations to other buyers: Avoid at all costs.

Andrew, This is great feedback. Thanks for taking your time to review the software. I think you would make a great addition to our Customer Research Team. This team helps drive our product direction by reviewing our ideas and giving feedback. I will call you to get you involved if you are interested. I would like to address your concerns as listed: 1. Inconsistent nomenclature ¿ We are in the process of upgrading every module in Paskr to take advantage of new technology. As this upgrade continues you will find fewer of these inconsistencies. You will also find some great new functionality. 2. Over Sensitive Drop Down Menus ¿ Excellent observation, one we have made ourselves. Look for these to disappear as our upgrade continues. 3. Cost Codes a. Arbitrary renaming of cost codes ¿ Unlike any other Construction Project Management software, Paskr integrates all modules by default. These integrations restrict us from granting your request to be able to arbitrarily assign cost code descriptions on the fly. The benefits of a fully integrated suite are repeatable processes that reduce risk, the ability to truly have paperless processes and the elimination of over 100 menial tasks. That said, you can create your own cost codes and we can show you how to do this. b. Using a cost code multiple times in a project ¿ Paskr provides several ways to use cost codes multiple times within a project. We will reach out to you to get you up to speed on this. 4. Paskr assigns all available cost codes to a bidder ¿ This is a real time saver and convenience for most of our clients. For a simple example, let¿s say you have assigned both Interior Lighting and Exterior Lighting to Joe¿s Electrical Company in your contact database. You then create a project with both of those bid items in it and invite Joe to Interior Lighting. Paskr goes ahead and assigns Exterior Lighting to Joe¿s bid form also so you don¿t have to. In the case that you wish to remove one, it is quite simple to do. I think you are on to something when you said ¿This is a product of our sub data base being overpopulated with subcontractors performing work associated with multiple cost codes.¿ We will reach out to you to show you how to quickly remove cost codes from a bid form and more importantly, to get your contact database structured correctly. (So you won¿t have to worry about this in the future). 5. Change order sequencing ¿ If a Subcontractor change order is not related to an owner change order they are listed in the order in which they were approved. If they are included in an Owner change order, they are shown nested under the parent Owner change order. There is a subcontractor filter which allows you to quickly see all change orders issued to a selected subcontractor. We will add this to the list of things to show you. Screen appearance is very definitely a preference and everybody has a different one. I look forward to hearing your preferences and incorporating any ideas that will help our client base. 6. `Meeting Minutes are horrible¿ ¿ We know this module needs to be updated. I look forward to your input as to how to improve this when we upgrade it to the new platform. 7. Owner Billing Rigidity ¿ Paskr¿s owner billing follows the standard set forth by AIA. This format is very accommodating for lump sum projects but lacks some flexibility for cost plus projects. This is true also for any owner billing software other than Excel. If a project requires a nontraditional Continuation Sheet, some clients create this with excel and attach it to the cover sheet that Paskr creates. 8. Committed Cost Report ¿ We have a Committed Cost Report on steroids. We call it the Job Status Report because in addition to committed costs, it gives you information that helps you compare your estimate to your buy out and see your forecast as well as any potential Revenue and Expenses in the form of RFPs and Change Orders awaiting approval. This allows us to go a step further than your typical Cost Commitment Report by showing not only Total Uncommitted but also Pending Profit and Forecasted Profit. This has proven to be a great tool for both the Accountant and the Project Manager. If you will open any project In Progress and click the reports tab, under Accounting you will find `Job Status Report¿. If you find that this report does not meet your needs, we are always happy to create a custom report for you. 9. Writing a subcontract for a cost code not in your budget ¿ You are right about this. Your Accountant would have real heartburn with Paskr if we allowed you to do that. So, we created a super easy way to add a cost code to your project in seconds. This is something I will add to the list of things we need to show you. Andrew, I have checked our training logs and see that you have not watched any training tutorials or taken advantage of our live webinars. If neither of these appeals to you, we also provide one-on-one training via webcast or onsite if you prefer. I also encourage you to take advantage of our support team who are some of the best consultants around. I am going to ask our Training Manager to help you understand how to best utilize Paskr for your specific needs. Thank you again for your feedback and you should be hearing from us soon. Very Sincerely, Krista Phillips Product Manager Paskr Software

Comments: I liked the original platform PASKR was using, up until a couple of weeks ago, now it is harder to find who has bid the job, with the companies number and such. Now it is almost like a search engine, which does not help whatsoever. Also they do not list the companies by trade any longer but in alphabetical order, which does not help.

Hi Jakeb, Thank you for your review of our software. I wanted to take a moment to address some of your concerns with Navigation. To find Sub Quotes: When you are on the Estimate>Base Bid worksheet, click on the Gavel icon to reveal your bidders that have submitted their quotes. Click on their company name and it will open their bid form so you can see all of their numbers and any notes for Exc/Qualifications they added. Click on their cost to add their number to your Estimate. To see a list of your Bidders by Trade, go to Tasks>Bid Invitation Wizard>Send Invitations. You will see a list of Trades in Division Order. Click on the Trade and it will reveal all Bidders invited to bid on that cost code. You can also print the Report called Bid Invitation Detail Report and that will allow you to print the report by cost code as well. We are always happy to help should you have any questions. Thank you, Paskr Support

Pros: Not only easy to follow along, but the screen display is easy to read.
The selection of subs and pricing is great. The selection of subs for bid invitations works well.
Our superintendents use it daily for file access, daily reports and time cards.

Cons: Some reports need to have information added or modified. The estimating and project start up are well managed. The management of actual costs and hours during the project need some added reports to be able to monitor costs, not just set a budget and let it go.

Overall: We have been using them daily for the last 8 months, as we learn what it can do, we continue to use it in more ways. The Customer Service is the best of any program I have used. They may only be online during the day, but the chat box method is great, for issues after they are gone, we just email a note and they address it first thing in the morning.

Recommendations to other buyers: The team at PASKR is constantly working to improve the program and updates are often. If you create a project before an update, the update will not apply to that project. We have started to deleted projects and created a new project to be able to use the updates. Not hard just a note to be aware of.

Pros: Bidding, billing, chat support, training library

Cons: reporting, contact database, sales tax

Overall: Our PM team has seen increase in productivity due to using Paskr. The bidding module saves time & is excellent for managing invitations & compiling sub bids. Paskr is fundamentally a solid tool for tracking the project's bottom line, housing documentation, & overseeing progress. There are endless possibilities for growth/improvement within the software with respect to document control, reporting, & accounting connectivity. Innovations can't come fast enough, as we are excited for the potential we see in Paskr.
The staff at Paskr has bent over backwards to please us & train our staff on Paskr processes. They are attentive & responsive to both us & our contacts. L1 needs more training to avoid providing misdirection. The support staff is amazing, but limited by the program itself & its functionality. More often than not our requests are left with "future enhancement" as a response.
As with any software there is a learning curve. We are slowly learning the Paskr process & developing work-arounds for its limitations. The platform is rudimentary & user-friendly but not necessarily intuitive. Therefore, it takes time to learn its idiosyncrasies (thank goodness for the chat feature).
Features & functionality are lacking from my perspective (accounting) as I rely heavily on reports. All reports are in pdf format & not customizable or interactive. Developing reports that allow you to click on figures & see what is behind them would be a huge leap in functionality for both the PM & accounting depts. Printing pdf reports & manually searching for data to audit is very time consuming for accounting & leaves the PM blindly accepting his/her entries.
The QB web connector is what drew us to the product over others, however it is very basic & requires manual massage of data to correct some glitches in the data transfer. Again a time consuming process (yet still quicker than our prior fully manual system).
Example of an area needing enhancement that would have tremendous impact: dashboard calendar. It could be a highly effective tool for PM team if it integrated task from all project for which they were assigned, allowing them to have full view from a single pane of glass.
Overall we are better with Paskr than we were before it. There is potential for Paskr to be so much more. As it improves our productivity will also improve, as will our staff¿s ability to convey the pulse of the business to our owner which was our primary reason for selecting Paskr software.

Pros: the functionality of all the modules

Cons: the hover menu dropdowns and that it opens multiple web browsers when you are working on different things in the software

Overall: We have tried multiple different project management softwares and paskr is the most functional. The look of the platform is not as flashy as others, but we have come back to paskr for their well thought out functionality. Every step of the project is taken care of. We once switched to procore thinking that they must have all the functionality that paskr has, but we were greatly disappointed by all the constant "work arounds" that needed to be performed to use procore. Don't make that same mistake. The staff at Paskr is great to work with and always willing to help with employee training, support, and anything we may need. All in all a great product.

Pros: Bid process, estimating, change order and rfi tracking, daily logs. There are still a lot of features we have not been able to try out yet.

Cons: Schedule (the feature is clunky, moving around the screen is difficult and it does not always update properly based on daily logs). Client interaction (not user friendly). Notifications, (I do not receive them anymore, and the clients are not receiving them either.

Overall: Overall we like the product. I think it could be more user friendly for sub-contractors and customers. The page for contractors seems more user friendly than the sub-contractor page, simpler is better for them. Also all customers want to be able to access their info from their phones through an app. All they really want to see are the daily logs, photos, schedule, and approve CO's, and most are on the go and not in front of a computer. As far as the features for us, we love them. It has definitely made us more organized, and we are tracking our budgets much better. It has also helped with protecting ourselves in making sure we were contracted properly and had all the correct paperwork.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just improve the above cons, other than that it is really great. One of the main things I like is that this software has the ability to update and can improve.

Pros: It makes project management more efficient. I don't have to enter the same information over and over on various documents. It also gives multiple reports to track a project and watch the changes in profitability. It also is easy to prepare bills each month.

Cons: The scheduling module is very difficult to use in my opinion and the connect between scheduling and daily job logs could be better. Having to approve each schedule change individually is very time consuming, especially while the screen refreshes

Overall: I've been using this management software for most of the last 6 years. Overall it is very helpful and makes me more efficient managing projects. There have been some recent changes that I feel have taken away some valuable functionality, but they have been very willing to listen and explain the reasons for the changes. They are also willing to look at my concerns and consider restoring some of the functionality that was lost.

Recommendations to other buyers: Overall a very good option for project management, but in some areas I feel it does not provide enough flexibility. All companies do not do things the same way.

Pros: Contract Management

Cons: Progress in updating software, computing errors, changes to necessary features, lack of accounting integration

Overall: Overall, PASKR had been a great program with great support, but lately the features and functionality has been slipping. PASKR seems to have problems with their computing and we have change orders, estimates, owner bills etc. that have numbers consistently not adding up along with glitches in PASKR generated reports that our clients see. The most recent occurrence led to the decision by our leadership to move away from PASKR and find a different program.

Beyond the computing errors, I believe PASKR puts too much effort into adding bells and whistles as opposed to fixing the bare bones of the system that needed attention/updating. The progress that is made seems to be very slow as well.

Its a great program for contract management and subcontractor payment applications, and they have great customer support, but there are too many errors and too little progress beyond that to encourage our company to continue using PASKR.

Recommendations to other buyers: No

Justin, Thank you for your feedback. Client feedback is invaluable to us and has helped us make Paskr great over the years. Your request for time cards by employee and the plan room link when in progress are both in programming and will be released by year end. Your request concerning the cost worksheet modifications cannot be accommodated given the current platform. We communicated the plans for these requests to Brad.

Pros: Ease of use and access from any internet location

Cons: Our company assigns multiple contracts to the same Cost Code because our accounting keeps track of money per cost code and this software we will not be able to do this.

Overall: Where should I start; Our company is still in the set up phase and will be going live soon. The ease of the software is evident once your in the system. During the implementation process we have had run across some minor glitches and issues. These were handled and taken care of extremely quick, professionally and with little delay. Live support staff is probably tired of hearing from me but I have contacted them with the smallest of questions and with some complicated issues. The support staff, programmers and our contact Traci, has resolved all of my questions no matter how small.
The software is very user friendly and easy to understand. Once you are in the system the first time, data entry goes quickly. We are now able to store our Drawings, Specification, RFI, Contracts, PO's, Subcontracts, invoices etc at one location. The ease of access from any location with internet access will be a tremendous asset for those involved across the country. Online training was very clear and informative. Although we have yet to go 100% on the software I feel that once the ease of use and reliability of having the entire project at one location would prove its worth.

Pros: It has all the important and necessary functions needed for any type of project

Cons: The dashboard is not user friendly and it does not allow 1 person to have all functions of the project. Owners should have this override.

Overall: This software is geared towards offices that have several Individuals responsible for the different stages of the Project. They do not take into consideration that some offices may only have 1 or 2 people doing the administration. Therefore, each person requires at least 2 separate sign-ins and has to sign in & out each time they want to perform a particular function. Their customer support is excellent though and they will walk you through the process as needed.

Recommendations to other buyers: For smaller Companies allow a version to be used that gives one single person the choice of handing out responsibilities as they choose.

Pros: Cloud based
encompasses all aspects of the project
logging all views for drawings and such
if we need a special report, they will generate it for us. (for a small fee)
the ability to create a unit costing list for budgets

Cons: The estimating portion needs some work
wish it sync with Peach tree
The costs can add up if you do a lot of work

Overall: The one of the best things about Paskr is the fact that they are always bettering there product and releasing updates without making us pay for updates.

Another great point is the fact that it encompasses everything we do as a GC and since its cloud based we can work from any where.

I would recommend this product to any GC.

Recommendations to other buyers: With the cost per month so cheap there is no reason to test the system out

Comments: There is no central scheduling software associated with this project. Sure, you can schedule each project individually, but finding the overlaps in subcontractor schedules is cumbersome. The software also requires you to input a base bid in order to even start scheduling. For our use, we do not use this software for bidding, so it adds an extra (read unnecessary). The time it takes to work with this software just doesn't make it worth it in the end.

Pros: Our company explored several options for new project management software in order to streamline our process. We were using multiple programs which caused some confusion between field staff and subcontractors. Paskr was able to combine our document storage, scheduling, accounting and project management functions under one umbrella. Customer service is excellent and very responsive.

Cons: After using the software for several weeks, we did uncover some small issues that we thought could be improved upon. The mobile app forces you to log in every time you open it. You are also limited to the default numbering system for RFIs and submittals. The software works best when you have complete buy in from the design team and subcontractors. While it is possible to circumvent this if a sub doesn't use the software, it can be cumbersome to manually enter the information in.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's not perfect and you will encounter some bugs as you work your way thru it. However, these growing pains will be overcome after repeated use. Do your best to get your entire team (owners, design team, subs) to fully utilize the software. This will help diminish the number of issues you encounter.

Paskr has been an integral part of our business.

Pros: For the most part, the site is very user friendly and has saved us time and money over the years by simplifying and organizing steps required to complete a project.

Cons: Our site has been shut down several times without notice after payment was not received by the due date, even though it was sent in a timely manner. Our CFO prefers to issue paper checks, and there should be more of a grace period, or at least a phone call before the site is shut down. This has been an inconvenience on several occasions. There is also some minor "clunkiness" to the site, though Paskr has worked to make improvements. I prefer the old user name system, where users could select their user name, versus using their e-mail addresses. Some of the menus are also very close together and it's difficult to hover over the correct menu without opening up the drop down for the adjacent menu (beside, above or below the intended drop down menu).

Recommendations to other buyers: It's difficult, if not impossible to find a product that will fit every single need of the customer. I would recommend identifying a list of "must have" features and then comparing the different products to see which most closely meets those needs. For us, Paskr was the solution that worked best for us, and we have been pleased with it over the past 5-1/2 years of business.

Cons: What I like most about the product is that it is pretty intuitaive and user friendly. I have also always gotten great costumer service and support. They go above and beyond.

Pros: Paskr in general is a great software, it does take time to learn the ins and outs of this software and a year later we still learn more. The Team at Paskr is constantly upgrading things to make the GC lifes easier. I believe firmly because they all have lived our life before Paskr. The understand the ups and downs and frustrations that comes with the life of General Contractor. The support team at Paskr is second to none. They help anytime of the day or night and never are upset for having to do so. The Paskr team really believes in the product and wants the General Contractor to succeed. They are fantastic!

Cons: I dont have bad things to day about the Paskr product. The issues we have is trying to get our subcontractors on board. Thats not a Paskr issue, they even offer to talk with our subcontractors to help them. Change is difficult for a lot of older generation contractors but when they do engage in Paskr they realize that they also save money by using the system.The ones that do love it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look no farther..this system does everything you need and then some. We looked at all systems out there and none compare. Last year our company had 1050% growth and there is NO WAY we kept up with all that growth without Paskr and the Team over there. I attribute a lot of our success last year to Paskr.

Pros: - The billing and approval process for the subcontractors to bill completely electronically. It makes the process quick and painless once the subs do it once! - The ability to send bid invitations and track the process. - Customer service! I always have the help I need when something is not working or I need help figuring something out. LOVE the Chat window!

Cons: There are often "hiccups" that happen (random mistakes in billing numbers, etc). Sometimes it is user error...sometimes it has to be fixed by the tech team, I have to clear my browser history, make sure I'm using the correct browser, or its just the "the internet being wonky" that day. It can be frustrating and keep me from getting things done when it needs to be done, but I always have help when I need it, and it's usually prompt. Sorting Drawings - I hate that you have to move just one at a time. It takes for ever!! Would be great to move groups of them at once. :)

Pros: Responsive customer service. Bidding module is very efficient.

Cons: Inability to approve COs out of sequence, automatic renumbering would be a good revision.

Recommendations to other buyers: To best evaluate software similar to this, I suggest you simulate a project from bid to closeout.

Pros: PASKR has the ability to import all of the sub billing into QuickBooks even if you don't have your vendor loaded into QuickBooks just yet. We like the budget importing option into QB which allows us to be more efficient in a team environment. We also opted to import the item list so that we can effectively cost code all of invoices. And, invoices in QuickBooks that were previously coded with the old QB cost codes were very easy to correct manually. Over all the experiences we've had with PASKR have been excellent.

Cons: Well, being a new customer and since our entire set up is new we want the training program to be a little more tailored. It's not so much the software but the need for training many employees who are all at different levels. After speaking with some of our "new-bees" we have all concurred that we need the training on the go type program on not really prior to all of our necessary applications. Because as you may very well know, it's much easier to retain something as you need the information. If you don't need the information right then, it's most likely not going to be retained.

Recommendations to other buyers: Tailor your training programs for very busy office set ups so that employees can actually retain what they've learned, especially if they've never used the software system before.

Pros: We travel all over the country working at airports. Paskr gives us the ability to complete and manage work where ever we are working. It has reduced the size of our office staff by automating many of the normal day-to-day processes.

Cons: The integration with accounting systems. However, Paskr listens to us and is developing new interfaces with many accounting packages.

Recommendations to other buyers: For an internet-based construction management system, it cannot be beat.

Paskr = less paper.

Pros: They have thought of almost everything. I wish I would have had this ten years ago. The support team has bent over backwards to make sure we understand and get the most out of the system. I'm not sure about other companies, but Paskr really wants you to know how to use their system. Although they do web conferences and you can watch the recorded versions on you own, they don't leave you to figure it all out on your own. That's nice. I like that.

Cons: The chat support isn't always available. I would like to have vendors bill against a PO, but there is a workaround for that. Plus, I think that they are working on this feature.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's a great product, especially for the price. I'm almost over the learning curve, and I love it. It will save our company so much time, and it's a great way to keep all of our project information in one place.

Pros: It takes 16-division commercial construction and molds it into a manageable format that anyone can use. These divisions can be set up to be as simple or complex as you need them.

Cons: The payment and subcontractor section could improve.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be patient. With anything of this nature, Paskr has breadth and depth in its layout, so you must go into it knowing this upfront. Stay positive through the face-to-face training Paskr offers.

Just implemented and loving it!

Pros: I like the collaboration with subcontractors and client/architects.

Cons: I have to be careful setting up cost codes. After you use them, you cannot change them. There are a few glitches that are being worked out. There's too much clicking with mouse; it needs more hotkeys. They need to fix the sales tax issues.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be very careful when setting up cost codes and putting in your vendors.

Great system. Easy to use. Changed the way we do business.

Pros: Low upfront cost. The Paskr fee is captured at the project level and not with general overhead. No long term contracts. Customer Service is over the top. All calls and emails are returned in an expeditious time frame. The learning curve is minimal. Paskr is as easy to use as any app i have on my iPad. Customization of software available with their programming team for a minimal cost. Reports generate critical information to our management team that we were never able to run before. Total oversight of your company employees. Great document control system from bidding to closeout.

Cons: I don't think there is ever going to be a perfect system out there that 100% completely satisfies every function of the construction management, process but this sure is to be up in the top 3.

Recommendations to other buyers: Upfront costs are minimal. Customer service is over the top. It's easy to use. Great system. This changed the way i do business as a general contractor/construction manager.

Comments: We are a General Contractor in the Chicago area that was looking for a system that would keep our projects organized and eliminate repetitive entering and incorrect billings. I was looking to find something that could organize the information we receive from our subcontractor¿s proposals to the owner¿s contracts and the billings that I produce to the owners. I wanted to be able to store documents that were accurate and easy to find. Paskr Project Management actually exceeded our expectations. The database they have formulated is so complex and every item that is entered into Paskr interfaces with the next document needed. Billing is so simple now and all of my subcontractors love using this system. For them, it eliminates all billing questions, change order questions, and waiver questions. We have received great support from Paskr. They offer great training on the program basics, and their support is there when ever I need it. I would recommend this system very highly and our company and staff all feel the same way.

Comments: Our company is a small, woman-owned business. We are a commercial general contractor specializing in tenant build-outs. Prior to Paskr we were using Excel to track costs and estimates. This caused multiple entries of information throughout the jobs. We were also not tracking subcontracts and change orders with any consistency. Subcontractors and suppliers were billing on multiple types of forms without a purchase order or subcontract to back it up. Binders of paper were kept to organize project documents. When we first started looking for a new program, cost was an issue. There were many different options available. However, a small company like ours could not afford the start-up and annual renewal costs. By investing in Paskr, we committed to new procedures that streamlined our processes and kept them consistent across all project managers. The financial investment was affordable and ongoing costs are based on use. I have personally been using Paskr for over five years. I was new to construction project management when I first started using it. In that regard, Paskr taught me the proper progression of a construction project. It aided in keeping the job organized and forced subcontractors to sign subcontracts prior to billing. With Paskr being Internet-based, there is no software to purchase or maintain; I can access Paskr from any computer that has access to the Internet. The owner of our company can "look in" on all jobs to see how they are progressing and with the consistency of the way all jobs are handled, it limits the number of questions. The company's customer support is remarkable. Whether it is a username/password request or an error message, the response time is close to immediate. Overall Paskr has provided us a solution for tracking documents and costs for our projects. It has also allowed owners and architects to easily see information regarding the project that keeps them informed. Having this ability with Paskr has helped us "seal the deal" with owners.

Comments: I have been a CFO for a commercial general contractor that uses PASKR for four years now, and have realized the benefits of this system. -PASKR streamlines the process. -PASKR provides full disclosure of financial information for each project on a real-time basis. -PASKR reduces mistakes and thereby increases profits. -PASKR has enabled both the accounting department and the project management team to work more efficiently. After PASKR is implemented and employees are appropriately trained to use the software, we had a lot more success ensuring that important deadlines were met and budgets stayed on target, greatly increasing our ROI. PASKR can't replace a dedicated or experienced project manager, but it can help make him significantly more productive and allow him to manage more projects at one time. As head of the accounting department, I have significantly more confidence with my financial forecasts because I can access all projects on a daily basis. I also have real-time access to pending/approved change orders for our owners and subcontractors. I can also hold my project managers accountable for the post buy-out budget, and easily track overruns. Prior to implementing PASKR, the month-end closing process consisted of tracking down each project manager and discussing every single expected future costs and change order. I had to rely on the project manager to fully disclose the financial information. With PASKR, all of that information is readily available online. One of my favorite processes within PASKR is the subcontractor billing process. Subcontractors represent 70%-90% of a general contractor's costs. PASKR provides added audit protection because it requires a subcontractor to sign his subcontract agreement before he is allowed to submit a pay application for a project. Also, it will ONLY allow a subcontractor to bill up to the amount of his contract, plus or minus any approved change orders. Over-billing by a subcontractor doesn't exist with PASKR. My next favorite process within PASKR is the owner billing process. The project managers build the original schedule of values, and monthly create invoices for the owners based upon the percentage of work completed. All the accounting department needs to do at that point is review the owner pay app, notarize it, and distribute it to the appropriate parties. No extra Excel spreadsheets or wasted time trying to get the information from the forever-busy project manager. I love being able to access any document (contracts, change orders, correspondence, drawings, etc.) from any computer at any time for any project. I don't even want to think about life in the construction industry without PASKR.

Comments: As a woman-owned company trying to expand and grow our business, we were looking into many project management programs to help us manage our workflow. After numerous demonstrations of different systems, our company decided to go with Paskr. Paskr is easy to use, and works great for small to large projects alike. The customer support is one of the best available, answering any questions that may arise.

Comments: Paskr has really changed the way we operate our construction projects. Before Paskr, we would have to write contracts, price work, track changes, and send invitations along with various other tasks by using different programs from Microsoft. Once these items were done, we would then print out and try to organize files to make sure all documentation was kept. We can now do all of the items above online and from anywhere. We store them on Paskr¿s website and allow our clients access to certain files. It is very convenient to have access to any file you need with a few mouse clicks. Our project managers are no longer dependent on an assistant for tasks that Paskr makes easy. This has saved the company money by eliminating a position that is no longer needed, and making our project managers more efficient when running or bidding projects. Paskr offers templates of most documents we need, that we can modify slightly without having to type a tremendous amount of additional words. Another benefit is that our project managers are less likely to make mistakes than the assistant inputting data, because the project manager knows the project better and can make sure to protect the company with proper wording. And, because this does not take a lot of time with Paskr, it is very easy for project managers to do this. We purchased Paskr about 4 years ago, and our tenant division has been using it ever since. We start the bidding process with Paskr, and we use the system all the way through to billing. It is our project managers' lifeline, and assures that critical items are not missed. It protects from mistakes by tying the contracts to the bidding documents. The software does not allow sub-contractors to bill changes that are not first approved by us, or that have not been approved by the owner. Paskr takes us from start of project to the end, including close-out documentation. It then stores all of that information for us or the clients to review. In my opinion, project managers are only as good as their system. Paskr has been a way for our company to reduce mistakes and create more efficient project managers. More efficient project managers and less mistakes equals a more profitable company. In other words, Paskr increases our profits. Our bottom line: Paskr works well for flow construction.

Comments: Our company has been using Paskr for approximately two years and we have been extremely pleased with our experience. Paskr took us to a completely new level in project management. Previously, we used two different PM systems. One was integrated with our accounting system and the other was not. Paskr made these two programs look like dinosaurs. Paskr is written by project managers for project managers. It encourages me to have a disciplined approach to how we execute our projects and it keeps other personnel out of our accounting system, unlike many other project management systems. Implementation took us approximately one month and the Paskr team has been quick to respond to any question we have had along the way. What used to take me an entire day getting a project bought out, now only takes me about two hours. Paskr has kept me from hiring another project manager. So without a doubt it has paid for itself again and again in the length of time we have used it. Its internet based approach and paperless qualities have saved my time and money. I can use Paskr anywhere and anytime and I have recommended it no less than one dozen times since I purchased it.

Comments: The Conseco Group is a general contractor specializing in ground up commercial projects. Why are we different? When you arrive in our offices, the first thing people notice about our organization is the lack of paperwork and our organization. We¿ve used Paskr over seven years. It has become the rule, not the exception, for bidding, billing, subcontractor maintenance, issuing contracts, budget maintenance, project management and electronic database management. Paskr provides timely, accurate data, protecting our organization with the correctly populated contract terms and amounts. It sets controls that require a subcontractor perform certain tasks when a bill is submitted. These controls ensure the company gets a better return for its investment. As Conseco¿s sales increases, we¿ve never added administrative personnel to cover the extra work involved in issuing contracts, opening the mail, keying in contracts and dealing with change orders; there¿s no need. Paskr sends everyone an electronic notification, we import the documents and ready, set, go. It takes just as long to import one contract into our accounting software as it does five. Learning Paskr is easy. If you are already issuing a CO, creating contracts and building budgets, the concept is the same. Now, however, we have more protection, spend less time processing paperwork and more time managing the project or taking care the of the client. Paskr is a leading technology, perhaps a little before its time seven years ago. Now, a lot of software or sites are ¿mobile¿ ready. Our employees, subcontractors and clients enjoy the turnaround, accuracy and it¿s how we do business every day.

Comments: Most organizations fear change. However, for the sake of continuous improvement we at SouthLand looked for a tool that would help us provide better service to our customers and streamline our project management systems. With the PASKR system I have found it to be well thought out and very streamlined. Not only does it make the process easier for the project manager, but it makes it easy for the Contractors Principals to review and check in on the status of projects. The PASKR team already has a great product but they are still extremely willing to listen to the needs of the contractors and maintain flexibility to make improvements as they go to better fit the individual contractor. PASKR is a great tool and also lends itself toward a paperless project.

Comments: We are relatively new customers to the PASKR family. We considered the product for several months prior to making the decision to purchase. During that time the PASKR sales team was very helpful in allowing us to explore the product and assess its impact on our operations. Once we decided to proceed, implementation was quick and trouble-free. The system keys off of a contact database for clients and subs. We do not use the ubiquitous Outlook email client so importation was a little less automatic. The time spent in getting the contact information to PASKR is well spent. This needs to be paid attention to. We immediately jumped in and started using the system for project bidding and also set up an active project. We were able to get projects out to the subs with little problem. We had spent 2 hours or so in training, which gave us the necessary system background to understand PASKR's approach, jargon and methodology. Once you have a grasp of those concepts, and a grasp is all that is necessary, not full command, you are off and running. Our first complex project bid was unbelievable. No paper. No piles of sorted information. No struggling to coordinate pricing updates with clarifications. Literally, it is a situation of typing the information once and then having it available throughout the project documents. Our time was spent hustling sub quotes, telephone clarifications, cost adjustments. This was the smoothest bid we have ever done. Period. Project administration, contracts, subcontracts, RFI's, RFP's, Meeting Minutes....all with the same ease. You will not believe how easy this makes communication with the project team. Very pleased with the entire experience and operation of the system. When we had issues, the PASKR support was available and helpful, via phone and/or email. We have not visited the same issue twice and the assistance was outstanding. Can't say enough about PASKR. The system standardization and productivity gains are going to pay off down the road. In fact they already are.
