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

File storage/organization for project quotes is not very user friendly - it just lists out what your templates are if you save them as an iteration.

Co-Construct allows me to be on top of the all aspects of my projects regardless of what stage they are at. Single data entry is fantastic and the program synchronises well with QuickBooks.

Pros

Simple data entry that is done once Quality project management system Easy to develop specification presented in a professional manner Simple and effective financial management system that includes invoicing

Cons

The ability of the program to ingest data from estimating software is limited.

Response from CoConstruct


Hi Craig -- Thanks for the feedback. We've got some upcoming enhancements later this year on importing estimates for our builders and remodelers who prefer to do their estimating elsewhere. We also have some other tools coming to add even more power to our fully integrated estimating solution within CoConstruct. So, either way, it sounds like we're working on some new features that should help you get more out of the system.

Co-construct is easy way to manage client communications

2019-10-31

The program has been really great for improving our tracking and management of changes and decisions.

Pros

This has great communication tracking for keeping track of decisions and changes between the clients and the project managers.

Cons

As with any project management software there is a learning curve and it take a while to figure out how to organize your information and become efficient with your data entry.

Truly a fully integrated program...

2019-01-09

As someone who is constantly on the road or at a project site I would love it if the mobile application worked more consistently.

Pros

CoContruct lives up to his brand of a fully integrated system by providing all the important project management features from financial management to client management.

Cons

However it is very glitchy like most mobile project management software.

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.

2016-12-13

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.

A Must for Construction Project Management

2020-01-28

I have to say that every time I call into Tech Support, the tech who answers has always been able to solve my issue or answer my question without passing me to someone else.

Pros

Our clients, trades and entire team have ONE site, both computer and mobile, to visit to access all of the necessary information, specifications, budgets, jobs schedules, etc.

Cons

I need additional estimating integration with my estimating software and currently have to manually enter my estimates vs. pushing takeoff data real-time directly into my estimates.

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.

Free Trial is a Scam!

2020-05-26

They don't provide any real experience with use of the software.

Pros

Some general functionalities were okay but you can never try the actual software without purchasing the trial, so it looks good on the surface only.

Cons

Major flaws in accounting, scheduling and day to day job management such a submitting variations via phone.

Response from CoConstruct


Sean This is Donny Wyatt, Founder and CEO at CoConstruct, and I wanted to personally respond since we'd never want one of our customers to have what sounds like a bait-and-switch situation. I am having our team confirm that your refund was processed. If it wasn't for some reason, we'll make sure it is. Secondly, I want to clarify about the "free trial," since we have never offered a free trial in our 15-year history, nor used that "trial" language on our website. Some of our competitors do use that term (even though they don't actually offer free trials, either). So, I wanted to dispel concerns about our offer. However, you did sign up at a time when we offered a money back guarantee, which we'll absolutely make sure we fulfill. Finally, I hope we can reach out to get your concerns about the product itself. We don't try to be all things to all companies, but we can't improve if we don't ask. Thanks for posting, and I hope this addresses at least the most pressing of your concerns.

very powerful features with a lot of support which contain all sides to make it easier with some changes in UX and Guide and tips will increase new customer rate within 20% at least

Cons

- Not multi-language product - and expensive little a bit - UI is good but Ux not perfect for someone first user

Wouldn't run a construction company without it

2020-04-23

CoConstruct has allowed us to integrate all project related information in one, web based platform that can be accessed from anywhere, including a fantastic mobile application for use in the field.

Pros

It completely integrates all aspects, from initial lead intake, estimating, specs, bid management, proposals, financial integration, project scheduling, task tracking, employee time management, and the list goes on and on.

Cons

From an overall perspective, the software has more available in it than we have been able to use currently, which gives us runway for future continual improvement. When we have had concerns, the CoConstruct help team has been able to quickly assist with answers, and they have even implemented some ideas for improvement we have suggested.

Pros

If you are a growing company then you need Coconstruct for better organization and management.
