CoConstruct Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about CoConstruct's features:

Raymond Sundberg

Very good experience - unsurpassed Tech Support

2018-02-27

Into our 3rd month - it's been going better than expected - short learning curve even though it's quite powerful and feature packed

Pros

Able to bring out Business Management - Project Management under one program to eliminate redundancy and time wasted

Cons

Often, we provide a baseline budget which we save and then need to use it again to do an iteration due to design modifications to bring the project cost down.

Old Dog, New Tricks

2016-10-10

I am an old school paper person. I like having something in my hand that I can file away and always go back to if necessary. I have a tons of boxes & job books full of paper notes. Many of these are duplicated with info I sent to my superintendent. I can see great benefit in using this program once I get accustomed to it. That is my biggest, making it do what I am used to but in digital terms, 30 years the old way.

Pros

Tracking daily activities, that I can see each day, with out having to visit the job site.

Cons

No paper trail and concerned about data loss.

I am just starting to use this program and it will take some time for me to get it fully implemented. I plan to stick with it because I see a lot of good in it. So if you decide to try this give yourself plenty of time. Don't expect it to fall into place over night.

Response from Donny


Ben -- Thanks for the note. We did want to let you know that there are several ways to create change orders in the system. If you have all of your selections in the system, you can, with a couple of clicks, turn those decisions into change orders. If it's a non-selections item, you can simply create a new document, type in the change, put in the amount, and click who needs to approve it. So, whichever route you go, Co-construct has a secure way to quickly create COs and get digital signature signoffs on them. Regarding QuickBooks, we do support a subset of QuickBooks Desktop features for users on Canadian Edition. We are looking at updating that to include the full feature set in the not-too-distant future.

Remodeling contractor

2017-02-22

I have used CoConstruct for about a year and it has been great for keeping track of projects

Pros

- works well for large projects - Project calendar works for aspects of the project 1 day or greater in size - Time log is a big +

Cons

- No way to base calendar on Man-hours (for small projects this would be helpful) - For those billing different people at different rates (skilled treads men/apprentice) Multiple reports need to be exported as this information can not be displayed on a single spread sheet the way the system is set up - To add a higher level of data tracking the cost jumps up fast.

Look at each step/part of your operation analyzing each team members strengths and weaknesses and how you process your proposals/ bids, so that you can intelligently compare what you do and how Co-construct handles that process. From your teams stand point an "in take" sheet that converts the modules of your software to bite size chunks with real world examples...i.e if you communicate with your clients like this.... our software will allow you to do that by x & y plus we offer this benefit as well.

Ronnie -- Good news on the timesheets... you can control who in your company has the ability to modify time entries. Many times that will be limited to a project manager and the person who approves the time. With our ability to track location via GPS and to push the time data directly into QuickBooks, hopefully we can help you eliminate the need for a separate time app.

A fantastic tool, built by someone in the business, with over the top amazing quick response customer service.

2018-04-06

I love the push notifications to clients and field to keep people informed.

Pros

This is a management tool allowing incremental implementation.

Cons

I wish the scheduling was a little more robust. The minimum unit is man days. I am used to man hours which allows scheduling accuracy and multiple tasks on different projects in the same day. They are working on that.

Dan -- Thanks for being dedicated to learning more and more about CoConstruct so you can make the most of it. We'll reach out to you directly about the mobile app to see if there's some training we can offer, since we have a whole set of field-focused mobile app (for phone and tablet) features, including time clock, job logs, photos (which you can draw on), schedules, client/trade communication, and even letting your PMs track budget-to-actuals. I suspect that your field guys are busy and may not have seen some of the announcements about our latest features. So, we'll make sure you have the info you need to take advantage of it!

Overal great value for the money, lacking a some robust features

2017-12-08

I would recommend this for projects that are NOT customer centric, i.e track homes, or commercial jobs.

Pros

There is a customer portal however it is lacking features. site design is simple, relatively easy to use.

Cons

ClearEstimates Plan "rooms" are difficult because you need to have separate files in multiple locations for various people.

CoConstruct has benefited our Company

2017-06-15

Overall, we are glad we made the switch. The comparsion between BuilderTrend and Construct is close.... We have not use the estimating tools yet as we still use excel. Plan to make the change soon... This could be the tool that sets CoConstruct apart from BuilderTrend....

Pros

The Gantt chart is first rate in scheduling. If you are a MicroSoft project user, this is a perfect fit. Customers seem to like it so far as does the sub Contractor base. We ended up making a switch from BuilderTrend to CoConstruct mostly due to the scheduling features.... BuilderTrend lacked Subtask in the Gantt chart viewing each task as a separate line item. I want to total duration of the foundation installation with each subtask involved. Not just have Foundation as a single task....... outside of those few items, everthing is worked good. I would definitely recommend trying to see if it fits your needs........

Cons

No way of tracking sub contractor insurance certificate expirations under the vendor section.

We could not do what we do with co-construct.....period.

Pros

Keeps everything organized, in one place and helps the clients stay on track to make their selections when we need them.
