So far, so good

2021-02-09

CF offers lead tracking, estimating, online signatures, project management, change orders, job costing, SOV creation....and the list goes on.

Pros

We're just getting through the free trial, but so far have had a great experience. While still in the learning phase and haven't used many features yet, the customer service and training has been top notch. As a small business, we chose CF because of the wealth of features at a more economical price than many other comparable companies.

Cons

Though it checks the box for all the features we desire, the user interface could be a bit more friendly at times - the process of navigation can be a bit clunky to learn.

Thank you Dimitri for the review. We do provide one of the best Daily Log features of any construction management Service. It's not included in the basic plan you have but it is in all other plans. We can enable this for you or we can meet with you and show you how it works.

Response from Contractor Foreman


One of the great things about Contractor Foreman is that you are more likely to grow into it than you will out grow it. We all want to succeed and when we get a point, sometimes the systems we started with no longer meet our needs. Contractor Foreman is different. The price is excellent for smaller and new companies and the features also fit the need of large established companies. This reduces the need to look for alternatives as you move from Residential to Commercial or as you grow and add new employees.

Hopeful

2018-12-10

No QB integration, on online invoicing, on integration with "my" website to include new customer inquiries.

Pros

There's plenty of effort hacking at the core of what's important to construction project management and reporting.

Cons

It's a great product, but not mature for daily use.

Hi Garret. Surly there was a mistake on rating support a 1/5. We talked for 30 minutes and I thought things were going great. I mentioned that QB integration would not be out for two weeks and you said OK and you even asked if you could be a guinea pig. In the review you made the comment that it isn't for daily use but yet, you didn't even create a single item and you used the system for less than 10 minutes. Something is odd about this review - maybe it's from a competitor or something else fishy...

Great Package!

2020-04-12

Great!

Pros

Contractor Foreman allows us to customize templates which we have used for simplifying change orders, and we think we can use templates for warranty and release of claims statements for subcontractor closeout.

Cons

Contractor Foreman is easy to use but, it is not the easiest system to use on the market.

Amazing software

2019-03-29

I got it mostly for the scheduling but now use it for estimates, invoices, change orders, punch lists, and pretty much every other aspect of project management.

Pros

It is a great scheduling and project management software. it is also great for the financial side of the business such as estimates, invoices, change orders, work orders, etc.

Cons

For example if I create a contact and put in all of the contact information for that contact I would like to not have to put in that same contact information when I create a project for that contact.

Response from Contractor Foreman


Thank you Jordan for the great review. Regarding the 'Con', when creating a new project or a new estimate, the system will prompt you after selecting the customer and ask if you want to use the same Customer address for the Project address so that there is no need to type the same values again. Time is money and we want to save you as much time as possible by automating as many tasks as we can.

Highly Recommended

2019-10-08

Communication issues with the field, the clients, the office become integrated into 1 place also allowing for miscommunication. change orders, punch lists, estimating, job costing...etc. again to be integrated into 1 place.

Pros

Project Management, Time Clock, Budgeting, Job Costing...etc.

Cons

The ramp up was a little cumbersome - Free Training solved the issues Personally my biggest con is the inability to customize the actual layout of the estimates/invoices...

A lot of features, great support staff

2020-03-25

It has been somewhat frustrating being so used to how Quickbooks online is setup and functions and then having to try and reprogram my brain to setup all of our systems in this new software's terms. Fortunately the customer support team is extremely responsive and very helpful.

Pros

The ability of being a one-stop shop for all our project management files for our crew foremen is excellent

Cons

Unfortunately for us it seems like this program is more focused on large scale general contractors and is almost too advanced for our needs.

What we have been looking for

2020-03-20

having timesheet, project reporting and statusing all in one platform

Pros

i am a small business owner that runs a electrical contracting company, we have grown and currently use several different platforms to manage our operations, we looked into CF and saw we can have all in one. the price for unlimited was lower than what i spend for all my other platforms.

Cons

the estimating section is a bit weak would like to have at least upload plans so we can do takeoffs
