Comments: very complicated not for beginners, not very easy to use however it gets the job done, would recommend procore instead.

Pros: its a place to store your data and retrieve it when necessary. folders stay organized. lots of areas to store information for daily reports.

Cons: very complicated to use. not all folders are titled for items you're looking for, interface looks like your dealing with the old 80's MS dos. Sometimes will not let you upload items or pictures.

Comments: Take your time to really test and vet through your software before rolling it out to the masses.

Pros: I have been using CMiC for 16 years and it has definitely evolved for the better over that time. I am looking forward to moving to the ADF platform by next year. I usually get quick responses from CMiC when I have a problem with the system. The connect user conference is also a big plus.

Cons: 1. The Submittal process in CMiC Collab is not easy to use 2. It is not intuitive for a new user 3. There is a lot of functionality that users still don't about

Comments: Well integrated system overall, but everyone needs to pitch in to make it great!

Pros: - Business Process Integration - Job Billing module is fantastic from my experience. We can customize our contracts/bills ALMOST any way our users need (with the exception of some change order options). - Gords passion - Constantly trying to evolve/innovate CMiC to keep up with what people. No one wants users to go and find another program to do something that they feel CMiC cannot do. Mobile and BI are some of the newer things that have kept us from having to explore other options.

Cons: - Performance/Speed is overall a bit slow - We have BI in our DEV environment. It is on its way to becoming very useful for us, but it's not quite there, but I know it's still being developed. I wouldn't say that it's really the least favorite of mine, just that I am really excited to see what else is coming.

Comments: Go through the tutorials and play around with it. It takes some time to get used to, and I can understand the frustration when something doesn't work the way you want it to.

Pros: CMiC's software is very user-friendly, and navigating through the software becomes easier the more you go through it. There are some redundant components with regards to submittal logs, but the tutorials CMiC offers help ease the difficult portions of the software. I like how user-friendly it is, especially for beginners that have never used the software before. It is also very adaptable and the organization throughout the software makes it easy to navigate through the different sections.

Cons: There is some redundancy throughout the different sections. The amount of information within each section can be a little overwhelming. Saving after each step can be a little irritating.

Pros: CMiC is a highly customizable, versatile ERP for General Contractors. High level of customization, in an integrated solution, specifically targeted to general contractors.

Cons: Once you post there is no way to make a change (for mistakes). finding the right report.

Pros: As a new user, learning the system was a bit challenging and there are many items we have yet to utilize. There is a lot of potentials, and it seems like it is being constantly improved. I really like: - Real-time job cost data - ability to import/export from Excel - Cloud-Based

Cons: Ease of use in certain areas (e.g. "select all" buttons would be nice), inconsistency in advice/set-up from trainers, would like there to be an interface for paying payroll liabilities.

Pros: My experience with the software has been good, however, there are some kinks that need to be worked out. Unfortunately the performance of the software varies where identifying a problem in CMiC has to be escalated to support. 1.) Ease of use. 2.) Ease of journal entries. Clearly formatted. 3.) Internet-based - can be accessed from anywhere.

Cons: 1.) Lack of consistency in some of the processes such as job billing. 2.) Slow downs in the software that we are not notified about until we contact support.

Pros: CMiC is a great ERP solution for the construction industry. The cost management portion is great and easy for the user to comprehend. CMiC also does a great job supporting their customers and have top-notch account reps.

Cons: 1. Hidden costs - i.e. adapters 2. Error messages are not always intuitive, which wastes our time troubleshooting as well as the CMiC support teams.

Comments: Glitchy beyond belief. Terrible IT support that can┬┐t seem to calculate our payroll and report job costs accurately on a regular basis. We are almost a year into dealing with ongoing software issues.

Cons: Miscalculations in their reports!!! We create spreadsheets that provide more accurate reporting. Ongoing software issues has cost thousands in lost productivity. We are less efficient using CMiC software.

Pros: I mainly use the CMiC database for accessing data, occasionally entering equipment into the Equipment module, and entering my time sheet. For the most part, CMiC seems to work well but it would be nice if there was a consistent interface amongst all the different modules.

Cons: Too many interfaces (Forms, ADF, JSP, etc.) to access data.

Cons: There is a learning curve with CMIC. Some things are intuitive where as others are not. We are trying to use more and more of the system but get to a point when we have to start customizing reports or we have really good ideas and we have to pay for enhancements.

Pros: General payroll needs met by software. Would like to see more standard payroll reports. For data I can't get from a report, I have to download data from view screens, and create excel reports on my own. Would also like to see historical pay, hire/term/rehire data in a sub screen within the Employee Profile Maintenance screens, instead of having to go to Employee History Adjustment screen in Utilities. Three things I really like about CMiC: 1) Ability to download data to excel. 2) The system is able to recognize state reciprocity/non-reciprocity and withholding tax accordingly 3) Ability to find specific data using query operators/functions

Cons: User should have proficient excel knowledge to get desired data from system.

Pros: For the most part, CMIC meets our needs. It has come a long way in the 11 years I have been using it and I like the direction it's going in. When ADF gets all the little nuances worked out it, it will be a great replacement for the old Forms screens. I think the JSP screens need to get a face lift next which mobile is helping with that. All in all, I've used a few other construction ERP systems and CMIC, while quirky at times, is my favorite.

Cons: Take the time to understand why the system is doing what it's doing. Once you understand the "why", then it makes determining your process easier. Sometimes, minor tweaks to processes can make the world of difference in how something is done and makes the process as a whole work better within the system.

Comments: We have been using CMiC since 2005 and our overall experience has been very positive. Over the years, the solution continues to evolve and is part of our competitive advantage. When implementing for the first time, it is important to redefine workflows to be consistent with the system so that the full benefits can be achieved.

Pros: 1. A centralized enterprise solution that includes Finance, HR, CRM and workflow as well project management. 2. The collaboration functionality enables us to engage all project participants anywhere, anytime. 3. Integration with other applications such as Plangrid and Docusign.

Cons: 1. New releases sometimes result in loss of existing functionality that we have been relying on. 2. Training for new releases is not provided free of charge creating a disincentive to upgrade.

Overall: Training was thorough and assisted me in getting my project setup and even followed up with me after I was using the program for several months. Initial learning curve is a little steep, but using the program daily helps, just like learning a foreign language -- usage creates more ease with the program. I used it mainly for communication with all of the project players and as a repository for all project documents.

Pros: People that work at CMiC, overall, are all awesome. Paul in sales, and Chet in support, are (2) especially solid individuals that come to mind. The ECM Plug In is great! That tool alone is worth CMiC. Support staff is usually very responsive when issues arise. TONS of features and capabilities! I like that CMiC has updates often - makes you feel comfortable that they're continually trying to support their clients and improve their product.

Overall: I think CMiC is a solid solution with abundant features and capabilities. We have only "unlocked" about 10% of the tool, so I hope we keep growing and leaning the CMiC solution. I wish our company used more of the program - there's so many helpful tools. The CMiC team has been a pleasure, overall, to work with. We look forward to growing with CMiC in the future.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure your whole company is on board so you can unlock the robust features of the product and use it to its full extent. Invest lots of time into the training and try to get your complete team to attend. Be prepared for a learning curve for your team, your consultants, clients, and subcontractors.

Pros: The ease of use.

Overall: We just started using the software a year ago and it is a continuous learning experience. There are so many options/opportunities for us to streamline our business. We have just begun to touch the surface of everything CMiC has to offer. I believe CMiC has already made our team more efficient in so many areas...ie; time management, communication, paperless and much more.

Recommendations to other buyers: Test everything in a test environment before you use it in a live environment.

Pros: Having the data in real-time for PM. ADF is a powerful technology allowing us to customize the software. Being able to import/export from Excel is great. It should be available in almost all screens. Log Builder. It does everything: payroll, AP, AR, PM, ....

Overall: CMiC is a really powerful tool. The product itself is really good. The data flows between all different modules without any problem. It is great to be able to run the pay for a week than being able to track our cost in real-time. CMiC also provides us a way to implement different standards in the company. Instead of having multiple ways of doing things, we now have "THE" way.

Overall, CMiC is a great product built towards GC. CMiC does everything, or almost. It will give any construction company a clear advantage over competitor if enough time and resources are spent to make it fits the need of the company

Recommendations to other buyers: Enough time and resources must be spent on the implementation/management of the system to work 100%. If you do so, it is great.

Comments: As a project engineer, I used the CMiC software mostly for RFI's and submittals. The format is customizable. The tracking on the submittals is excellent. There was a lot to the program that went unused and seemed to have potential given more time to explore. Overall I found it to be a very good tracking software with the tools necessary to produce forms as you prefer.

Pros: I was able to pick up and learn the software with no formal training

Comments: Beck is a long time user of CMIC, and we rely on the Job Costing and Job Billing modules to bill our customers. Beck uses almost all of the CMIC modules and we most recently added the 3rd Party Payment feature to our ACH and check printing procedures. We utilize the forms, JSP and ADF screens, and Beck has a large number of custom forms, JSP queries and reports. We utilize over 100 user extension forms. As a database developer, I am impressed with the open architecture of the CMIC system. We are able to do many enhancements (or implement restrictions) that might be impossible in a closed system. The CMIC system is easy to manage, and there are a large community of users and 3rd party support partners. I really get a lot of information from the annual Connect conference

Pros: open architecture billing options ease of management and support

Recommendations to other buyers: Check out the job costing and job billing options and features.

Pros: The invoice data entry mod is great, whether it be registered or voucher. Kind of hard to mess that up which is nice. Vendor detail reports are key to tracking - love them and that I can get them in any format I choose.

Overall: My primary use is in the accounting portion of the software which at times can present a challenge but I believe it is like that with any and possibly all specific software. We always want it to be easier than it was a week ago. Some of the necessary steps seem redundant in some ways and could just be safe passages to get the end result, I do not know. For my work in this system, I can get my job done easy enough, answer questions through the available info access points accurately which is what the leader want. Is there room for improvement - Yes, when is there not?

Recommendations to other buyers: Be patient when you are first learning how it works and buy the complete package, I think that is important. Only having part of it makes end results more difficult to come by.

Pros: Project data can be stored within a single system instead of using multiple systems.

Overall: I am using CMiC in a construction project manager role. I like that the system stacks submittals and RFIs and is easy to enter this information and track the status. I am also using CMiC to track PCIs and write change orders. I like that the costs can be entered as received from subcontractors, and the subcontractor costs as well as the owner costs can both be tracked within a single process. I don't need to track subcontractor changes separate from owner changes anymore.

Recommendations to other buyers: Have someone who knows the software walk you through using it the first couple of times instead of trying to figure it out by yourself.

Pros: Integrated systems, reliable with plenty of checks and balances. Room for personalization is nice feature thus not being too limited.

Cons: Old Oracle technologies and reliance on Java (can't wait for us to get to ADF and mobile).

Overall: CMIC is a powerful tool constantly improving. Recent conference displayed mobile, resource planning and the future thereby allowing us to react at our pace. We often lead the pack is utilizing the software suite but have taken a more relaxed state to prepare internal SOPs. We often learn about things from support and customers we didn't know saving us time and money. The past along with the future product enhancements makes the investment worth it and nothing beats an ERP suite for our industry.

Recommendations to other buyers: Play and not be afraid of limitations. The system is as powerful as you want it to be. Go for it!

Pros: CMiC has the capability to capture as many details as the user desires and then provides exceptional reporting capabilities. I especially appreciate the uploading of documentation to CMiC and linking it directly to applicable records.

Overall: I have been using CMiC since 2009 and was a member of the Pirtle Implementation Team. I assist with training, procedure and reports of the Project Management module. At first some new trainees can be overwhelmed, but they soon find that this software can automate many tasks and improve efficiency. Employees who have moved on to "non-CMiC" companies have expressed how much they miss the software.

Recommendations to other buyers: Implementation is key; don't get too detailed at the start. Make detailed user customizations after you go live and understand how you will use the software

Cons: it can seem overly complicated when you first get started to send RFI's this is relieved after some experience.

Comments: We have been in production with CMIC for almost three years now. As we have become more adept at the function and features, we continue to find more value and benefits to the application. We are impressed with the scope of the application, as CMIC handles almost all aspects of our financials, human capital management and project management. New features for mobile, dashboards & analytics and digital signature are all very positive additions to the product.

Pros: CMIC is highly integrated and was designed as such from the very beginning. Nothing in CMIC feels "bolted on". The quality of the software is high and scope and breadth of the system are excellent.

Cons: Output & reporting is a bit weak. We are anxious to see the new dashboard and analytics feature to see if the new module will help to address this issue.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is vital to re-think and re-engineer your business processes when implementing CMIC.

Comments: Once you learn how the systems works and remember the steps that are necessary for the task you are doing, then everything starts to make sense. At first, I wasn't wanting to let go of the old software that our company was using but now that I've learned and keeping learning how to use xProjects I'm liking it more and more.

Pros: It's cloud based! That is a huge pro for me, I'm always on the run and going between job sites and it's very nice to be able to log in anywhere I have the internet.

Cons: The software will error or null when trying to do things...I understand software is going to do that but it gets very confusing when you can't figure out why or what field was missed.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a chance and don't give up using it. When you have questions ask for help, don't try to work your way through the struggle.

Comments: I have so far liked my general use of the software.

Pros: My favorite part of CMiC is that the whole project management and superintendent side of the job can be encapsulated into one easy to use software program.

Cons: redundancy in some of the functions and the inability to go back (like coding invoices) to prior activities after they have been finalized.

Recommendations to other buyers: Repetition really helps to improve navigation of the system. Keep working through all the issues and you will soon master the interface.

Comments: This package is the "Full Monte" for medium to large general construction and subcontracting companies. My only concern is the forecasting tool which is combined with the budget is somewhat difficult to learn. Several of my finance colleagues that were super users in other products had a difficult time learning this product. I used this package with another national contractor in earlier versions and was very pleased with the ease of navigating the menus and it was easy to use once learned. This package is not as intuitive as some other packages, but the features far outweigh the time taken for instruction. Support was very good with this software.

Pros: I loved the reconciliation feature. It allows the user to tie the budgets to invoices that are not produced by the system, such as AIA and owner forms. I liked the report formats.

Cons: Again, I found forecasting reports in recent versions depend on the user's ability to learn, a major factor in spotting problems within the reporting budget status and revenue.

Recommendations to other buyers: I was part of a CMiC conversion mapping data transfer from another program. The conversion was not easy. Again, some parts of the program are easier to learn than others. Accountants need to have a very good understanding of WIP components and accurately validate program input or procedure errors in order to ensure budgeting and revenues for each project are accurate.

Pros: The idea that it is an all inclusive software for Contract Management and Accounting

Cons: CMiC is great at sales but lacking in efficiency and honest product representation. The product itself - CMiC Cloud - has not been developed for the Architectural industry and requires tons of customization (at a hefty price) and software accommodation.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do NOT allow salespersons to push into purchasing with ambiguous statements of product function. It is a very complex system that is designed for the construction industry. It is clunky and difficult for the majority of personnel to master without intensive training.

Pros: I wanted the cloud hosting and didn't want to have to have a 25 seat minimum. The three seat minimum was great for our size company and our current needs. The contacts I had with the company seemed more helpful than I had with some of the other companies I was looking in to.

Cons: The start up / implementation process seems to be lengthy and slow BUT thorough.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be sure to check out the email / collaboration abilities.

Pros: Good customer service. The product applies very well to our needs. Unlike other products, this software doesn't try to cover all the possible aspects in the industry, which makes it easy to use and understand. It doesn't over complicate things. We are still learning how to use it, but my colleagues and I, we are pleased with the way the training is going so far.

Cons: To date, it is a very pleasant experience. We are in the trainning phase, but it went very smoothly so far.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try. You will be pleasantly surprised. I love the simplicity and it is not overloaded with useless information.

Pros: We came from a QuickBooks and spreadsheet environment, and this is a whole different world. I love the product and the people we've been dealing with. The product really is light years ahead of everyone else.

Cons: There are lots of options, which on the whole works well once you know what's going on.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take the time to actually learn the software before trying to process live transactions. Save yourself the trial and error game.

Pros: We implemented really fast. That was a key feature for us. We had ample training, and being a cost cautious company, we were able to get what we needed on budget. There are some really useful apps that you can add onto the software that we are looking to upgrade with. Also, the SaaS model helps a lot by reducing our operating costs. We appreciated being able to call in when we had a question, and the support staff were always available, that's a big plus for us.

Cons: We were a little confused at first about how cloud-computing worked, but our sales person was able to narrow down the benefits and that helped. We were used to working with Excel and hadn't used Accounting and Project Management software before. I think it's not what we liked least, but more that cloud technology is not what we're used to. But we were able to pick up on the differences and benefits really quickly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Let the HIKUU sales staff really explain the benefits of a cloud-based service. When you really understand the real-time integration, accounting, project management, and the other apps, you'll have a clearer picture on what you want. For us, we'd recommend HIKUU to other firms. When something works, it works.

Pros: The Outlook integration! It makes it so easy to manage all my documents and change orders. Cloud access allows me to work from anywhere and allows Subcontractors to fill in quotes online. The reporting is very extensive.

Cons: It's very robust. There's almost too much functionality for our size, but we can hide the parts we don't need.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you choose the full ERP, consider starting Project Management first. Learning everything at once can be overwhelming.

Pros: Not really anything. It still works like a beta program with major problems throughout. We were unable collectively to use this software.

Cons: It still works like Beta program. It has many glitches that always baffled all of us.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do a month trial of any software if you're going to to invest a year into it.

Pros: It is cloud-based. There's no need to do periodic updates and maintain the software ourselves.

Cons: They're still working out a few kinks. Mouse and data entry isn't as smooth as it should be. It's somewhat sensitive and I get kicked out often. Different web browsers work differently. I'm constantly changing web browsers due to this.

Recommendations to other buyers: Training and implementation takes time. Make sure you have a team and time dedicated to this.

Very user-friendly product and timesaver for our organization.

Pros: It's easy to use, connects all different departments, and makes it easy to manage a project. Our subcontractors and architects can collaborate with us. Implementation was a breeze!

Cons: There isn't anything that comes to mind; we are very happy with the choice we made.

Recommendations to other buyers: Research your options. Come up with requirements from your employees that will be using the product to make sure it meets everyone's needs.

Comments: I work for a medium sized general contracting company based in Toronto. We have implemented CMiC's SaaS based xProjects solution. We are using xProjects to manage all of our communications, RFI's and Change Orders. I used CMiC's xProjects for the first time last month. I was very impressed with the implementation/training services that the CMiC team proved. CMiC's I/O Technology is fantastic and has helped streamline our collaboration efforts across the company. xProjects just works as you would expect it to. The fact that's its a SaaS based product allows me to access my data from any computer with an Internet connection. We have only been live for a short period of time, but I have nothing but great things to say about CMiC's customer service and their product.

Comments: After 20 years of searching, we finally found an application that covers all of our needs. We appreciate the personal service we receive from CMIC and are happy with the results and quick ROI we have gotten from simply using this software. We have replaced accounting, Project Management and share-point with CMiC Pro Software. We were able to go live in about five months, including payroll and human resources.
