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...

Amazing App!

2018-10-16

This helps me set estimates,fix budgets, generate invoices, note down retainer amounts and keep every contact and business transaction in check without having to note down anything separately as the app is comprehensive in meeting all my business needs.

Pros

The team behind this app is amazing. They're responsive, helpful and quick to resolve any queries that I bring to their notice. The app itself evolves to include features that will add value to businesses and this is something that any company would love to see. The app is intuitive and works really well with complex features that not a lot of apps offer with this much ease.

Cons

Calendar functions could be improved to make it the perfect app!

Thanks Johny for your kind words about our Support team. We know that it is one of the many factors that sets us apart from others. We do plan on adding more features to the calendar. Being able to used fixed and variable retainage held is something that many of our competitors do not offer so we are glad it is a valuable feature for you.

Big Bang for the Buck

2018-11-16

I even signed up with a different company before coming across Contractor Foreman however after I learned more about Contractor Foreman I knew it was the right system for us.

Pros

I love all of the different features offered by Contractor Foreman for such a low price.

Cons

I have a few industry specific features I need that are not available through Contractor Foreman however the developers have been very helpful and will work with me to create a template to capture all of the data I need.

Be careful with free trial!

2018-08-25

Although they have a descent program their customer service is horrible. I have so many very unprofessional emails from this company its ridiculous. We have been in business over 10 years and are looking for a scheduling program to use, and be loyal to, but because of their dishonesty and unprofessionalism, I would never use this company.

Pros

Software seemed easy to use, and makes sense for a typical contractor.

Cons

Contractor Foreman advertises a "free 30 day trial."

The best construction management service: Contractor Foreman

2018-10-16

All the issue everyday without contractor foreman, we would still struggle with everything.

Pros

For instance, i am the owner of a company, so my safety manager came to me and said he loved the safety meetings in this application, it is easy to use.

Cons

Some times, the system is very slow. Customer support gets to you at one point, sometimes to late, but overall their their for you when you need them.

I love that they listen to our suggestions and impliment them into the updates.

Pros

The developers are consistently improving and making changes based on the users requests.

Cons

Because it is new it still doesn't have all the features we are used to. However, I see it improving frequently.

Excellent Tool One Stop Shopping

2018-10-17

I have 10 different inputs for a single job that all roll up / out to various business functions. CF took me from 4 different APPs to one!!

Pros

The ease of use- and the fact that it's available for desktop and app. I need both from an administrative perspective and for my job Foremans.

Cons

The same thing that makes the tool SO attractive, which is TONS of different options and items to integrate is the item I would like to be able to customize to reduce.

Thank you Candi for the great feedback. To hide items from the menu that you do not plan to use, go to Settings > Roles and set the item's property to No Access. This will hide it completely. Later, if you decided you are ready to use it, you can return to the original setting. This helps you and your crew ensure you are focusing on the features you use.
