Pros
Used in my organization for the continuous administration of projects, allows you to be aware of all the details of the Project thanks to its variety of tool, has a very good technical support. It allows you to get details of expenses, cost, quotes and has a very solid and reliable system. recommended

Cons
It is important to maintain good speed on your computer since the software tends to be a bit slow when you use it. Expensive depending on what you need in your organization. It is important to be clear about waiting for this software before acquiring it, since it tends to be expensive.

Understood where our company sits with needs of software.

Pros
If you want one software for everything, this is a great tool for your business. It has every department covered.

Cons
It's too much for a sub contractor. Price, features, everything is just not designed for a small to medium business. This is for the big boys.

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.

Pros
Beck has used CMiC Enterprise and PM for many years. We love the integrated database, strong financial and job costing and the ability to customize when needed.

Cons
Either go all in and really get behind leveraging the power of the system and making improvements needed, or don't use it. If you are only partially committed and keep using other systems at the same time, you will continue to be frustrated.

Review Source: Software Advice

Take time implementing the software, do not do it all at once as this was challenging.

Pros
We have been implementing and using CMiC now for 2 years. While challenging to implement at first, CMiC has grown into becoming an excellent communication device between field and office employees. With the added enhancement of the financials, CMiC benefits both field and office employees when tracking costs of each project. CMiC has been worth the time and money that was invested to implement the software.

Cons
1. The cost and time to edit and change certain report formats. 2. Slow support time when tickets are submitted and at times it is difficult to speak with somebody.

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

Tricky Customization

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2018-09-21
Review Source: Capterra

We've been using another similar software for many years and recently switched to CMiC. The transition has been time consuming but the end result should justify the cost. We're looking forward to having the software fully implemented.

Pros
I love that we're able to replace 3-4 different softwares with 1 (CMiC). We were able to combine most of our company's departments into this one software which allows more seamless distribution of information. It's a powerful software that can be customized to meet our company's individual needs.

Cons
Customization was a very long process and we're still discovering issues as we roll it out to our employees.

CMIC is powerful and a key find but be careful

Used monthly for free trial
Reviewed 2017-12-22
Review Source: Software Advice

While we found it to be very impressive, also found it to have many little things that only came to light after significant due diligence. For a large GC, this should clearly be in the final round for selection but if not a large GC, be cautious as there will be gaps and struggles for fit.

Pros
CMIC is an impressive product with tons of features, functionality, scalable to a large number of users and stable. It also has the ability to integrate with a few of our key platforms.

Cons
While the pros are there, it comes with a price. The implementation will take atleast 6 months and often times close to a year based on all of the configuration and training needed. Also, become very dependent on the CMIC team for custom items and going forward. Make sure your business demands this level of enterprise application and that you've done enough homework to have everyone on the same page. I can see it very valuable for large GC's however any specialty trade or smaller construction will have a challenging time.

Review Source: Software Advice

This software was in operation when i joined the company and the internal IT department messed with it on a weekly basis to try to modify a round peg into a square hole. It was a daily nightmare. Maybe if it was unmolested and used for what it was intended it may be useful but that was not my experience. I am no longer with that organization and thankfully no longer using Cmi C

Pros
Unfortunately I have nothing positive to say about this software based on four (4) years of using it on a daily basis.

Cons
Way too complicated for simple procedures Same info has to be manually entered on every line on the same project Way too many drop downs to enter a simple value Not remotely use friendly No cell were auto populated - everything had to be entered multiple times Excessive waste of time entering the same basic info multiple times

Familiarize yourself with the software before going live, if possible.

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.

Review Source: Software Advice

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.

Review Source: Capterra

CMiC is certainly not the easiest software to pick up and start using. There are a lot of little nuances, and quite a few features that have more issues than uses. That being said, it handles the finances of a project VERY well.

Pros
The main thing I like most about this software is its wide breadth of abilities, and how it handles the finances of the projects.

Cons
Tough to learn and use; lots of nuances; not 100% reliable. Most recently I found that in the potential cost section that when I mark the overall COR as approved or cancelled, etc, that it doesn't waterfall down through all of the costs. No end-game failure of mechanics, but things like this that make it hard to trust this software.

Pros
We are on the cloud based version which seems to be going well. It's a new version, so it is constantly being updated/improved. Support team is easy to reach and nice. We generally get the same person which is huge since they are familiar with our setup.

Cons
The implementation process was tedious, time consuming, and slightly painful. We thought we were setting up things correctly, but since then have had to make a lot of corrections. Setting up our accruals should be fairly simple but have taken a long time and are still not calculating correctly. Very little customization. Getting a custom report is expensive and takes months.

Reviewed 2015-03-10
Review Source: Software Advice

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.

Lean on other users and user groups.

Pros
Very robust system with strong features and capabilities, if you throw enough money at it. $$$$$$$$

Cons
Terrible implementation leadership. Expensive. Overgrown and understaffed. System requires a lot more resources than the company represents. Requires a lot of consulting resources and in-house resources. Information output is useless in the base product. Requires outside resources and training to build useful information tools to run your business. Getting a response from your implementation team is a challenge. Company does not perform quality assurance on its product, you end up performing quality assurance for them.

It is very easy to use, just becoming familiar with the tabs but the software itself is very helpful

Pros
I have been using the CMIC software for 3 months now and I do enjoy how it links all the components of my projects together. I am a Project Manager for a Real Estate Developer in South Florida. I like the cost status query option to input a change order and then have it show as pending in the query even if it's not posted yet. I also like how the log-in is secure and how I can link multiple projects to one dashboard. Lastly, I like the way we can attach back up to the change orders or subcontract tabs.

Cons
I really enjoy the software as a whole. It would be great if it could link to outlook so emails on my mac would upload immediately into the communications folder.

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

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, ....
