Pros: i am able to track literally every cost that my job has, and easily run detailed reports, and even charts. i can even pull charts at the click of a button.

Cons: there aren't a whole lot of things that i don't like about this program i would say the only thing is that sometimes the system bogs down and is slow. the other thing i don't really like is that your company need to buy licenses, and you get booted when you are in there.

Overall: i am able to track every move, every purchase, every expense, and every detail of the job with this program.

Comments: We use this product to track our job cost. keep job notes as well as report our time cards to payroll. it is a very useful tool for tracking notes and change orders.

Pros: Easy to use with a job site tablet and manage from the office. Total control of our projects.

Cons: Pictures are not easily accessible after the project is running. Notes are only able to be listed on the overall timecard. if you could list notes with cost codes and add pictures to cost codes it would be better.

Recommendations to other buyers: Work with HCSS to set things up correctly the first time. Trying to go back can be an issue once you have your library's set up they are not easily changes with out completing a job and removing them and revising the library.

Comments: I have used the heavy job for about 8 months and it is a great tool for tracking the job on the field, controlling costs and managing your budget. One of the biggest advantages of the heavy job is the customer support. Every time I call the help line I get an answer and a great service. Tracking job in the field using time cards is painless with the heavy job and production analysis features help you manage your costs and stay on a budget.

Pros: Great customer support and easy to use. Very useful to track material received and installed and subcontractors. If data is accurate, Heavy job is the most important tool when you are self-performing.

Cons: Nothing

Recommendations to other buyers: Focus on training employees that create and review time cards. If data is accurate this tool will help you stay on budget and finish your projects on time.

Comments: The HCSS suite of products are by far the best in the construction industry. Our company has been using HeavyJob since 2007. Each year we utilize more and more features of the product. We started using the mobile feature three years ago and the data received from the field is substantially better. Not to mention they have the best support ever.

Comments: We have spent this past year introducing the software to our field crews and implementing its use in our day to day operations. Changing to a software based operation from the old standard of manual operations has not been without some challenges. The HCSS implementation team worked patiently wih us and the technical support team is second to none. The simplicity of use on the mobile devices has made it possible for even our most "technology challenged" field personnel to make the transition without too much trouble. Great products, great company with excellent customer service that has your companies' operational needs at the top of their priority list.

Keep up the good work.

Comments: Heavyjob has wonderful support, that is not only available on the fly, but can provide the proper answer on the fly. Support is wonderful, but if the support isn't knowledgable, it defeats the availability.
Comment on scheduling. I would like to see a more robust scheduling software to communicate with productions and work done that can communicate with Primavera P6 or Microsoft Project. This is a very critical field of work to forecast works, look at job completion, and help mitigate delays and lost time.

Comments: We implemented by ourselves 9 years ago but did not use any direct HJ to payroll download. Last year HCSS assisted in a full implementation including a DIS box. This has and will continue to change our company because of the abuility to know what your to date costs are on your construction activities. I would recomend using HCSS for implementation with this product due to the complexities of connecting to another system.
