Pros: As a mid-sized contractor, we run a lot of fixed price contracts so we have to watch our costs and margins very closely. 4castplus has given us amazing visibility into everything that's going on all the time. It's all real-time too which is a great plus; and the fact that it's all on one centralised platform with great reporting is an astounding improvement on the mess of spreadsheets we used to use. We also like the fact that we can run all our subcontracts along with our self-performed in the same system, which is a huge help for contractors like us.

Cons: We run a lot of mid-sized projects, so there is some functionality in 4castplus designed for mega projects that we can't take advantage of (like some of the project controls and forecasting), but everything else is excellent.

Great program for Project Management and Procurement.

Comments: Reporting features are excellent. I would highly recommend 4castplus.

Pros: I use 4castplus strictly as a Procurement tool. It is very easy to use and very flexible. I do not require any of the PM features so it is nice I can use only what is required in 4castplus. Support team is responsive and I have been able to get help when I need it.

Cons: I only use it for Procurement and the project management features are of no use to me as I do not need to track project related data.

Pros: The system allows for a wide range of data entry and custom reporting that aligns with the requirements of an engineering firm. Customer service is by far the best I have dealt with for a software company. New features are regularly being integrated into the system based on the needs and wants of the customer base.

Cons: Regular addition of new features can lead to momentary bugs in the system. Additional learning resources could be added or updated more frequently to limit the amount of correspondence with Customer Service.

Pros: The team at 4castplus is extremely responsive and clearly dedicated to solid partnerships with their clients. This is a refreshing change since my past experience with software vendors hasn't been great. Their software is fast, easy-to-use and you can see they are committed to top quality in every module. This is a very well built system that I'd highly recommend.

Cons: Any cons I might have are small tweaks that are pretty minor. And the 4castplus team has been very responsive about implementing my suggestions in their regular releases, so those cons don't usually last long.

Comments: 4castplus' team is excellent. Support (when needed) has been great, no complaints about this product.

Pros: Very powerful tool that has been locally developed here in Alberta. Great user interface which makes recording your billable time incredibly easy.

Cons: Very robust solution and I only use it to record billable time. A little overkill for what I need but you can't beat the price.

Comments: The company has great support staff. Implementation was smooth and training post go-live was very thorough for what we are utilizing the software for.

Pros: The UI is intuitive and easy to use for our field staff. You can access the tool anywhere, even offline. Reporting functions are great, especially for the diversity of divisions we work with.

Cons: 4castplus has a TON of features and we do not use all of them due to the nature of our business. You would need to complete the training in its entirety to utilize the whole system.
