Garret Brown

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.

Response from Contractor Foreman


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...

Jordan Savage

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.

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

I would like to see a customizable daily report that is one page, no tabs.

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

Perhaps we will get there over time and evolve with the software to start tracking all the metrics that this program is setup to track.

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

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...

Contractor Foreman Review

2019-03-28

We have been looking for a software to help with communication between the field and the office. We were also looking for a way to keep daily logs and photos. We looked at a lot of software programs to help accomplish this feat, and they all came up short. Contractor Foreman is the best we have found.

Pros

The support has been amazing and the "Live Chat" feature is really helpful.

Cons

There are a few things in the calendar functionality that could be improved.

Well-designed Software for a Growing Business

2020-03-31

Pros

The monthly cost makes Contractor Foreman a viable option for businesses that are on the smaller side of the spectrum unlike some of its more expensive competitors.

Cons

Although the software is intuitive once you understand how things are done, it still takes some time to get used to how all the various moving parts fit together. Plan to take advantage of the free one-on-one training before you get started in earnest with Contractor Foreman.

2019-10-07

It's transformed our estimating and to-do list of estimates and following up with clients.

Response from Contractor Foreman


Thank you Jason for this great review. Geofencing was added in the September update. You can enable it in Company Settings > Time. The range is defined in Project > Details. New features are being added for it including the ability to allow users of certain roles to not be required to be within the geofence area to clock in - such as a supervisor who is away from the job for a meeting about the particular job or buying materials, etc. We will continue to make the time card function even more beneficial and recently added overtime tracking. More features are on the way!

Great Product for the Cost

2020-06-02

Pros

Another piece we love is the project management aspect. The cost codes, being able to separate “leads” and Customers” is very helpful!

Cons

It’s quite large with a lot of areas we probably won’t use right away or ever. It’s a little confusing to navigate with all the links within links to complete tasks/set-up.

Contractor fore man

2020-04-23

i have been using it for 2 weeks. so far it seems the right product for my company. would recommend a new more customization which has been communicated to Contractor foreman team. i was glad that they are already working on these recommendation and should be incorporated soon.

Pros

Tracking the project cost, the option of assigning your job cost and then tracking it is nice. this way you exactly know when you are about to go overboard.

Cons

Invoicing system can be a bit better. it has certain limitation.

Learning curve of course, they are willing to help.

2020-04-02

We are now able to build estimates and budgets in 1 platform and we can integrate our quickbooks too.

Pros

Unlimited training at not additional cost. Much lower in price to competitors.

Cons

Limited CRM capability. Not much in automation. Still have to use a separate service for mass emailing and texting of our current and potential clients. Does not help with marketing to clients.

Cons

I feel like there should be more flexibility to customize the dashboard

Always Improving!

2019-10-08

Contractor Foreman is well worth the investment. I like the constant improvements that the developers are always working on. Customer service is very responsive. I have made multiple suggestions to development and have always received a response whether it be for more info or sometimes, what their plan is to implement my suggestion.

Pros

I like that the user can has to do a minimal amount of setup in order to start using the software.

Cons

Reporting is somewhat lacking but the user has the ability to create custom reports with available data.
