User Reviews of maestro* Construction

Submitted on December 16th, 2013 by an anonymous maestro* Construction user.

Complete ERP for heavy construction company including project management, preventive maintenance scheduling & accounting.

The Good…

All inclusive, no need for a third party product for our needs. Work order, contract management, project analysis, preventive maintenance all in one software bundle.

The Bad…

Some bugs in the beginning, still some to sort out. Support is slow at solving issues.
