Pros
B4C was great in taking our existing work and implementing it into the program. Software is quite user friendly and has been a great addition to our team.
I loved it so much that I suggested we use it to my supervisor and now the entire team of project managers loves using it to.
Budget4Cast is a one-of-a-kind software solution that allows simple and efficient, yet powerful and comprehensive management of project financials.
Cons
Moving between modules causes some lag as the contents populate, which is dead time waiting for data entry fields to be useable.
The auto forecasting feature proves to be confusing to users if used incorrectly. Always have to be aware if this feature is on/off.
Laborious initial deployment and very limited reporting options as of now.

budget4cast Review

Reviewed 4 years ago

Software is meant to be increase efficiency, and Budget4Cast checks that box with flying colors.

Pros

Budget4Cast is a one-of-a-kind software solution that allows simple and efficient, yet powerful and comprehensive management of project financials. It meets the needs of our development projects both small (<$5M) and large (>$100M) and it’s simplicity allows us to spend more time managing the project, and less time wasted on remedial data entry tasks.

Cons

It's a catch 22, because the software is so easy to use and efficient, sometimes there are features that we wish existed but do not. Reporting exports could be a bit more professional and customizable to allow for them to be used client facing.

B4C - Review

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall I like the software, however my previous software was so restrictive that it seems like a major improvement. There are a few functional issues that make the software not too user friendly. But at the same time, it is customizable and changeable to allow for quick corrections and creation.

Pros

I love the flexibility to update and make changes to entries on contracts and payables.

Cons

I don't like the project summary page, it has way too much information and then at the same time not the essential information that I need for my uses. It doesn't even fit on the default page size.

Vendor response

Geoff, thanks for your review. There are ways to pare down the amount of info on the Project Summary. I would be more than happy to go over some of that. Just send me a Contact Us form, and I'll get right back to you!

Easy to use Budgeting software

Reviewed 4 years ago

overall a positive experience. Able to work around most of the deficiency of the system.

Pros

Easy to implement and use. Did not have all the levels of approvals in similar software.

Cons

Not enough options for reporting and not strong in accounting features

Vendor response

Thanks for the review! We will continue to improve our reporting capabilities, and I really appreciate your feedback. Also, we do offer some integrations with common accounting software. Let's discuss if you have some time.

Reviewed 4 years ago

I primarily use Budget4Cast as an Owner's Rep, tracking the budget and giving monthly reports on budget health, current change orders, pending change orders, reallocations of savings/overruns. Sharing budget viewing permissions adds a great level of transparency. And of course having a intuitive tool to generate draws is especially useful.

Pros

The report generation and disbursement register tools are most useful to me. Being able to upload documents during data entry and download them as attachments to budget reports or draws is a major time saver.

Cons

Moving between modules causes some lag as the contents populate, which is dead time waiting for data entry fields to be useable. This is especially noticeable on larger projects where Actual Costs can take just enough time to load that it's annoying. It's also tough to track a single budget with two separate funding sources. My solution has been to run a separate budget for each funding source, which is not ideal.

Vendor response

Thanks for the great review, Tanner. budget4cast does offer a Funding Sources add-on, that I'd be more than happy to offer a free trial for you to look at.

Construction Budget Consistently up to Date

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

We love several things about the software. The first thing is that budget4cast is easy to use and user friendly. As we enter any expense, the system automatically calculates the project balances. All of our users can also log in from anywhere (from the office or the project) and add any expenses and see in real-time the balance remaining on the project. For years we've been using excel to organize and keep track of our budgets, but of course, budget4cast is more efficient, and you can see results in real-time.

Cons

I only dislike one thing, I wish that there was a small memo or note spot to add or leave a note along the way.

Vendor response

Thanks for the great review! I'm glad you love our app. There is support for adding notes to both actual and forecasted costs that you enter. Please reach out if you need any assistance in using these.
