Corecon overview

What is Corecon?

Corecon is a comprehensive cloud-based construction software suite designed for small to mid-size construction and engineering firms. The solution provides complete visibility into every facet of a firm's operations with modules for business development, estimating, bid management, contract administration, procurement, time tracking, correspondence, document control, and scheduling. Corecon can be accessed via browser or mobile device (Android and iOS). In addition, CoreconLink utilities integrate Corecon with popular accounting software such as QuickBooks, Sage 50, SAP Business One and Xero.

Corecon’s cloud-based software suite helps small to mid-size engineering and construction firms manage their job opportunities and awarded projects. The solution helps people with different roles and responsibilities work together regardless if they are at the office or jobsite. The software suite includes modules for business development, estimating, bid management, contract administration, procurement, time tracking, correspondence, document control, and scheduling. Corecon’s entire product line utilizes a single database which results in no synchronization and provides collaboration capabilities that are unmatched in the industry. This platform consists of Corecon, Corecon Mobile, CoreconLink Utilities for accounting system integration and the TeamLink Portal. The latter being used to collaborate with outside project team members such as clients, architects and vendors.

The solution is primarily used by commercial GCs, custom home builders, specialty contractors and engineering firms. Many of these firms struggle with job costing and are tired of all the spreadsheets, documents and emails that are scattered across the organization. Corecon’s cloud-based solution will alleviate all these pains and maximize job profitability.

Outstanding Project Management Software

Review Source: Capterra

We purchased Corecon for two reasons: 1) It integrated with Quickbooks, and 2) It had over 90% of the project management features we were looking for. The wealth of reporting data that we are able to get from Corecon helps us with timely & accurate billing, scheduling, workload projections, and much more. When we find a report that isn't readily available, their custom reporting tool can typically get us the info we need within 20 minutes or so of tweaking some numbers. If we hit a dead-end, their support team is timely and extremely knowledgeable about the product. Above all of that, the project management functionality is great. It takes some time to develop a system that works for your specific company, but the program allows for a good amount of customization and has really improved our efficiency in managing jobs. Overall, this product has improved our reporting abilities, the look of our documents, our project management abilities, and our interoffice communications. Couldn't ask for much more!

Pros
Huge amount of features to improve project management capabilities, and reporting possibilities are endless.

Cons
It's a bit clunky to use at times, but it is always improving. That said, on-boarding new employees isn't always the easiest thing.

It was very useful.

Pros
PO/Bill entry and conversions were seamless. Being able to customize your reports to business needs was awesome. Payroll processing was as easy at it comes. I believe that this software has some amazing potential which is why I would love to see the finished product. I think that is definitely user friend as long as you aren't afraid of software. The customer service is great outside of the IT department. They could use some patience for there customers. I will say that for the most part, they do have a lot of self help options so make sure you utilize your resources before you call. They do have software the exports to most accounting systems which I thought was super useful. We used Quickbooks.

Cons
Because Corecon is still under contruction, you can run into a lot of issues that only one who pays attention to detail will notice. - Reports requiring date spans would pull the day before and the day after the selected dates. -Importing time sheets would not import on the right dates. - After one of the updates in November, you could not copy a PO or Bill to a different project. - If you enter bills dated with future months, it would apply the expense to whatever month the expenses were entered versus what the invoice(bill) date was causing the budget reports to be incorrect. -Error code from Links to QB don't have an index and you have to google them most times.

Pros
The Employee time ttracking, the project setup, basic HR setup and employee information. It is straight forward to use.

Cons
Limited ability to make the software work for your particular processes. Link to Quickbooks, US based does not work particularly well with Canadian taxes. We have to correct for rounding errors manually.

Best value for money if you are willing to put the time into setting it up.

Pros
Works with Quick Books, and has a good all around PM tools from estimating through to project completion.

Cons
New interface is a bit confusing, tried to be more friendly and pretty but actually made it more difficult to navigate.

Project management software

Reviewed 2016-07-07
Review Source: Software Advice

Pros
It was comprehensive. It handled 4 major projects at the same time. My subcontractors had access to just what I wanted them to.

Cons
It is time consuming and challenging to learn. There has to be a daily time allotment. If you don't use on a daily basis you will lose the know how.
