Ashley's CMiC review

2017-03-15

I have been using this software since 2004. CMiC has come a long way not only on functionality but in customer service. From day one I have recommended CMiC to other Generals. I am looking forward to all the new functionality we have yet to implement and what the future holds for CMiC and our company.

Pros

Integration: Accounting, Human Resources/Payroll and Project Management Collaboration with the project team (internal & external users)

Cons

It is not always easy to extract the data into 'reports' Changes/enhancements to the software can sometimes be a tedious process

Outdated interface

2018-12-05

I would dread the days I needed to print and provide my weekly reports because of how many man hours it would take to get all the necessary information sorted and produced for our update meetings.

Pros

CMiC is definitely capable of being your one stop shop for your construction management needs.

Cons

Like most mass data collection and sorting software, the user interface could use some work.

Clunky, but gets the job done!

2018-12-20

Pros

A great array of choices as far as cost and document management.

Cons

Some wording used in the software should be clarified, and there should be a way to transfer files/data from one project to another project.

Miron Construction Co., Inc - Review

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.

Excellent management of architectural projects

2018-05-19

Very good experience, the project management department works more comfortable since they started using this platform, some things to improve but we trust that they will achieve it

Pros

Excellent tool for the administration of architectural projects, Great technical support in billing.

Cons

An interface somewhat complicated to understand, but its main counter is that it has problems with the development of reports when we want to extract important data

Integrated Accounting and Project Managment Solution

2017-11-21

If you are an operations-oriented firm (as opposed to an accounting-driven firm), this is the right ERP system for you. It is also the best commercial construction ERP system for your dollar. Like most ERP systems and large-scale software implementations, CMiC will take significant resources, planning, and training to deploy and maintain.

Pros

The fact the CMiC provides an integrated platform for our accounting and operations personnel to have real-time visibility into our projects without the need for custom-built integrations is the primary reason that we switched from Viewpoint to CMiC.

Cons

- Environment Management (patch testing, hot fixes, bugs)

Overall satisfied with the CMiC experience

2017-02-13

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.

CMICProd

2019-09-23

We’ve been using it to collaborate with our design team and owner reps and everyone has gotten through the initial growing pains of the program

Pros

It is the only software I’ve ever used for project management.

Cons

The software appears to be very outdated and can be glitchy. You may also have to click through 5-7 things before getting to the thing you need.

CMiC

2019-04-11

Our management loves the ability to get real time accurate and detailed reports of exactly what they need to make business decisions.

Pros

CMiC's greatest contributions to our organization are that it provides a powerful and scalable infrastructure that allows everyone to collaborate, stores all our organization's data and documents in a central location, and has excellent reporting capabilities to analyze our data.

Cons

The implementation process can be long. The distribution and segregation of the software settings to multiple locations makes it difficult to manage the system and troubleshoot issues. One central control panel would make it much more user friendly.

CMiC - Finally we’re Mobile

2019-10-28

It’s been a learning curve, but I think overall, we’re happy.

Pros

I love the Mobile Field app for our in-field users, it’s clean and simple and still improving.

Cons

I also wish I had more control over how reports look or generate.

CMiC Review

2017-11-21

It makes your job easier.

Pros

(i'm hoping that mobile increases this functionality) 2) That is geared toward the basic functions of a general contractor (workflow is good) 3) That it appears like continual improvement of the software is a focus (technological advancement is never ending)

Cons

(I'm working on MIP and hopefully will soon have access to oracle or jasper reporting tools to customize reports) The 'Captive data' aspect of the JSP data entry.

CMiC Review

2017-02-17

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.

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

Great for project teams

2018-12-29

With this system I am much more efficient in tracking documents and project financials all on one platform.

Pros

This comes in handy when you have multiple subcontractors and/or project team members who all need to view the same documents.

Cons

Although a great tool, CMiC is a fairly robust software.

Pros

Once there is an understanding of the product, it is very easy to use.
