Complete ERP for Construction Companies

2017-06-13

It meets or exceeds all our needs for managing construction projects and providing financial data.

Pros

The payroll module is awesome, a must for a union contractor who works in multiple states.

Cons

Purchasing module could be improved on. The interface could be made more user friendly for non accounting type personnel.

Best Value ERP integrating operations and accounting

2017-06-13

Access to data across departments increased alleviating the need for review and reconciliation steps for many processes.

Pros

Full integration between operations and change management to accounting/financial reporting.

Cons

Customization/Support at times can have lengthy lead times when not critical to daily operations. Based on IBM iSeries so IT staff used to a Windows only environment have some training to do. (we have gone to their cloud based SAAS model to alleviate these concerns)

Our company has been a user of the eCMS for many years and have a good working relationship with CGC

2017-08-14

By becoming a "hosted" customer we've been able to save many dollars by not having our accounting staff maintain an in-house iSeries.

Pros

The software is very user friendly. We also like that it is cloud based. The support staff of CGC is very knowledgeable, patient, and quick to respond to customer issues.

Cons

The ever changing functionality of the software sometimes is overwhelming, but we'd have those issues with any software.

Steve Pack

Satisfied user 10+ years. Robust functionality. Excellent data imaging. Good support.

2017-09-15

Solid ERP system with excellent data imaging capability and customer support.

Pros

Converted to eCMS initially for data imaging ability, which is well integrated with all modules but especially AP.

Cons

Because eCMS is so detailed and provides so many options to collect/enter data, setting up can be a challenge.

Overall Very Satisfied

Pros

The product is constantly growing with the rapid demands in the Construction technology world. This is a moving target with todays needs ECMS does a great job keeping up to date on this.

Cons

As all software struggle with finding a mobile solution, it would be great if ECMS could find a solution to this age old problem.

Luther Burrell

Computer Guidance eCMS

2015-02-25

Pros

The product is web-based and can be accessed from any machine with an internet connection through an encrypted VPN back to our servers. The product is fully integrated and maintains a great amount of detail on transactions so we can follow everything that goes on within the system as well as the fact that it runs on a very reliable backend platform.

Cons

I dislike the length of time it takes to get to a complete resolution on issues that are found in the software.

Recommendations to others considering eCMS

Take a hard look at how the applications work in relationship to your business. It is so flexible in many parts of the system. You need to make sure it is configured to meet your needs as a company. If it's not done right the first time, it could be painful going back and changing the way the system operates.

eCMS ERP

2018-05-10

Pros

My company achieves the ability to truly analyze the organization and gain insights across the different areas of production.

Cons

Training users who are not computer proficient can be costly and not an easy task. A lot more can be done about support.

ECMS works for us

2018-04-24

Good tool for accounting.

Pros

It works for what we do, it is difficult, however, to run a query but I have yet to see something that was easy in this regard.

Cons

It is a dated program that is clunky. It also could be the way that our accounting department has things set up. They have been known to make sure we stay in the 20th century.
