Fluid Contract Manager

Mobile-optimized construction management

4.4/5 (5 reviews)

Fluid Contract Manager overview

Fluid Contract Manager is a cloud-based, mobile construction management system for project collaboration and documentation. Construction managers, project owners, specialty contractors, and A/E teams use Fluid CM to track all project information from a centralized location, and improve efficiency within the jobsite. The platform works best for projects that range from one million to fifty million dollars and involve teams of two to ten people.

Fluid CM allows for the streamlined, digital processing of ‘paperwork’ and can be accessed via any mobile device. Uses can prepare, issue and digitally sign off on client contracts, subcontracts, changes and billings. The platform helps workers track important documents and keep change orders organized. Construction managers are able to keep on top of budgets and projections, as well as submit billings online.

The solution helps organizations drive projects forward by sending submittals and RFIs electronically through the cloud. Construction managers can maintain accountability and download tracking logs in Excel format. The projection module allows construction teams to project costs through to the end of the project. Users can draft change order requests and submit them for approval. The billings module helps prepare project billings that are in line with industry standards.

Contacts can be imported or manually entered into the system to enable auto-filled forms. Different access permissions can be assigned to users such as owner, general contractor, construction manager, specialty contractors, architect and engineers. Daily logs give superintendents the ability to automatically record weather conditions, add site photos and files, and filter reports based on a variety of headings.

The Fluid software has been a great project management tool. It keeps track of all the documents, and most importantly, who is responsible for getting the task completed. The distribution tools make it quick to send out Minutes, RFI's, etc. to all parties involved. Customer service is a 10! Always available and willing to make modifications so the software fits our needs.

Pros
Tracking of tasks and responsibilities for each party. Distribution of Meeting notes is quick. RFI and submittal logs can be printed in minutes. Great way to track documents.

Cons
Some software glitches, but nothing that customer service can't help correct. I wish there was a bit more personalization of the documentation styles. For example, a function to add in different categories into the Daily Log documents, or RFI documents.

Ease of interface with the design team.

Pros
It's very easy to use and access, easy to log onto, easy to search, and easy to download responses from designers.

Cons
It doesn't always open from the link in an email. Many times, I have received a response from an architect and I have to log into the system in order to access it.

I recently enrolled in the Fluid contract manager. As a previous user of Primavera and other national brands Fluid is much easier for me and my team. The cost as compared to these other providers is much lower making it an extremely valuable resource with substantial savings to our company. I would highly recommend this product and their back office support team

Short Learning Curve Required. Limited!

The product was not overly complicated but I felt that it was in a beta stage of development. The product was targeted for constructors. I am a construction manager working mostly as an owner's representative. Some of the features did not apply to the services I provide.

Cons
The support was limited as well. I called the rep with issues and oftentimes the response was, "We are working on a fix for that". Otherwise, the rep. was very nice to work with.

Response from Fluid CM


Thanks for the review, however it is rather dated and the system has been significantly updated and evolved since you last used it in March. Would you like to try the system again and see if your impressions have changed?
