Has Potential

2019-07-13

Good support, great implementation, excellent integration into Vista.

Pros

Getting dashboard job cost information from Vista has also been a well received feature.

Cons

It was a very hard decision for us, do we go with Procore and get all the features we need now, but at a higher price and buggy integration, or do we go with TEAM, which has an excellent integration and is cost effective and hope that one day they complete the package.

Large learning curve.

2017-05-11

Pros

It is super helpful to tract costs and collaborates well with heavy bid.

Cons

Not user friendly at all and needs what seems to be a good amount of work in order to create good, clean, and professional looking documents for businesses.

Collaborative Software Works Great for RFIs and Submittals

2019-06-21

Pros

We have several subcontractors that are uploading submittals and inputting RFIs directly into Team, but I've found that most subs will still use email to transmit these documents.

Cons

Submittal and RFI markups cannot be made directly in Team. The submittal or RFI must be downloaded to Bluebeam, edited/marked up with review comments or responses, and then uploaded to Team again. It would be helpful to have editing features in Team so there isn't an extra step.

Great Product!

2018-11-19

Pros

Submittal and RFI modules make it very easy to upload and track the information.

Cons

I also do not have the ability to notify individuals on a project when an urgent document (such as an addendum) is uploaded or changed.

Decent ERP System for the Construction Industry

2017-01-17

Viewpoint is our ERP system for better or worse. The functionality is there for just about everything needed in the construction industry; however, it's not always the most user-friendly. When Viewpoint introduces updates and there are bugs, it can take months for Viewpoint to fix them in a new release. If it's something you need to be fixed now, be prepared to pay Viewpoint to fix the problem.

Pros

Covers almost all aspects needed in the construction industry Highly customizable Easy to create custom reports Database isn't locked down

Cons

Viewpoint will find every way possible to charge you for support They have a bad habit of pushing out updates without thoroughly testing them

Recommendations to others considering Viewpoint

I would highly recommend having someone on your staff that can handle inhouse bug fixes or customization of the database; otherwise, you'll be paying a much higher rate to Viewpoint for anything you need. This is compounded when you start adding in applications that integrate with Viewpoint, like Mobile Field Manger (now owned by VP, but still has major integration issues).

Basic

Pros

I really like the capability and functionality of the available reports

Cons

For some of the spreadsheets, certain cells are frozen which makes entering data harder when those unwanted frozen cell can't be moved
