Mosaic unites project management, accounting, HR, document management, estimating/digital takeoff and mobile apps for time tracking, purchasing, T&M tickets, tools, drawings, daily reports and custom forms on one system, built specifically for specialty contractors.
Companies with annual sales ranging from $5 million to over $1 billion are generally the best fit. The majority of Plexxis customers are in the $40 million - $200 million annual revenue range.
Very detail software with multiple layers of information
Still learning at the processes, but so far I like the real time aspect of the software
It would be cool to have multiple tabs open at the same time.
The Mosaic Enterprise Suite has enabled MKB to streamline many of our key processes. This has freed up value time (=$) and allowed decision makers to have instant access to vital information. The partnership with Plexxis has been fantastic.
The ability to have access to real information in real-time. Another key feature is the ability to sort the data through numerous reporting functions. Our vendors are much happier with the purchasing process out of the Enterprise Suite.
In the PO function, the software allows you to select any user as the purchaser, I do not like this and feel the “purchaser” should always lock on who is entering the data.
Mosaic is a powerful toolset for our organization. All our accounting, payroll, purchasing and contract management is handled inside of Mosaic.
Having a single data source across all departments and all branch locations is invaluable. The visibility to drill down allows any user to get more info from any view point without having to ask another department.
Integration with other systems is direly needed to keep up with the tech landscape of the day.
Plexxis links management, accounting, and the field to provide instance reporting and tracking information along with “real time” information. The oracle platform is the best that I have used.
user friendly, tracking abilities, reporting!
multiple inputting platforms
Was using Sage prior and a decision was made to go to Plexxis and based on my experience over the last 2 years using Plexxis allows me to work more efficient, complete more tasks in a day and keeps our accounting department up to date at all times.
The smooth flow of how all aspects work together.
The reports are printed so small I have to go to cheaters to read them.
Plexxis ERP is a complete end-to-end software solution for construction subcontractors. Other construction software providers claim to have this capability but Plexxis truly delivers.
Plexxis was developed with the subcontractor in mind. Most of the popular construction software is developed for the needs of large General Contractors. There are significant differences between what a Subcontracting company needs and what a General Contractor needs in a software solution for their company.
The number of transactions and number of jobs is much larger for a Subcontractor as compared to a General Contractor for the same annual revenue. Plexxis handles all of the transactions - slices and dices the data in the way you want to report it without getting bogged down in the process.
User friendly and easy to train.
There is a very comprehensive takeoff and estimating system available.
Project managers can: create budgets, create change requests and turn the change request into a change order with the click of a button. When the change order is approved, Plexxis automatically updates the budget cost (by labor and material cost code) and updates the contract amount.
Job related data entered by estimators and project managers is the same data that will be seen by purchasing and accounting. When a change is made in Plexxis on the material, labor or equipment for a project, the result of that change is instantly available across all departments
Budgets can also be adjusted internally if needed and each adjustment has an electronic “paper trail” to let you know who changed the budget, when they changed the budget and what the changes were.
Some reports have advanced settings for a report that allow the person running the report to change the structure of the data and date ranges associated with the reports.
Want to know how much an estimator has sold and at what profit margin over a period of time? How much volume a project manger handles and what their gross profit was for the year? Want to know who your most profitable and not-so-profitable customers are? What types of jobs are most/least profitable for your company? Plexxis reporting can provide those answers!
Some cost reporting that is live on the screen will provide the capability to drill into a cost to show exactly what costs were included to make up the number shown on the screen. This feature is very helpful when you have the need to dig deeper.
Cost projections can be entered and tracked on larger projects. These cost projections will help you spot potential negative trends in time to turn them around. A recap of prior month’s forecasts are available to look back and compare.
Reports are available for field supervisors that show labor budget dollars (or hours), dollars (or hours) used and the labor dollars (or hours) remaining - by cost code.
Another feature for the field is the Plexxis Mobile APP. This mobile app can be used on an IOS or Windows device. Mobile APP features: Time entered daily by job and by cost code - Facial recognition of field workers (clock-in/clock-out) - Several levels of time approval before posting - Field reports to track the job with just the click of a button - Daily Reports - Safety Reports - Purchase Order Requisitions (supervisor approval can be designated within setup) - T&M Tickets with electronic signature approval - I found the deployment of the app to be very easy -
As others have indicated, the inventory component could use some improvement.
Additional date range availability for some reports.
Helps create efficiencies in your day to day operations. Connects each department to streamline communication while reducing the need for multiple entries and/or pulling information from one system to populate in another.
Creates efficiencies in cross department communication. Reduces the time required for “data entry” instead allowing for “data analysis.” Stores information in a central location (huge for multi-branch companies)
Had to replace/upgrade a number of computers to operate efficiently.
The integration of everything in one place is great, we use more features all the time.
Like that we can make notes & save documents/emails within the program, for quick reference (entire story can be found quickly)
Inventory module needs work, year end inventory count is less than ideal. It would be nice to have more details for item setup in Winbid for estimating purposes (same setup as items in Plexxis), then imported into Plexxis, if it becomes an item that will be “purchased” (after job is awarded). Need to have cost code area for material requests, in the “Foreman app”.
We love how everything is in one place (easily switch between purchasing, Project Management, etc) and how Winbid (the estimating software) integrates seamlessly into Plexxis!
Tracking of change orders, and how everything related to the change order is in one place. And the Foreman app for the guys in the field
Inventory module needs some work
Plexxis ERP is great at giving you a strong projection of your profits on demand. We often need to wait for month end to know how the Company is doing. Not ERP, it is on demand. ERP will run projections based on committed cost when you enter PO’s, Time card, or the Foreman App.
Mosaic Enterprise Suite, is very easy to use because the windows all look the same for the most part, it doesn’t matter if you are picking a job out of the job center or picking an employee form the payroll tab. They did a great job with this, it makes it easy to find or do things in the program with out calling for help!
In payroll we often have to change the tax setting with employee for many reasons and we have to call in order to make adjustment.
It is an all-inclusive software for accounting, estimating, and project management.
Love having everything in one place.
Paperfree AP needs some work still…
All in one subcontractor Accounting and Project Management suite with foundation for big expansion.
I like the interconnectivity of having all modules running on the same database. Plexxis is also always dreaming up new ideas to try to push the envelope.
Some modules are not fully developed to work in our specific uses and new features and updates seem to take longer than hoped for.
it helps consolidate all your information in one spot.
it makes tracking jobs easier and more concise. puts all your information in one program and not multiple like we used to.
They system is very user friendly and has many benefits. It has streamlined our process here and its awesome that everything is in one place. the reports that it can produce are very awesome. The trainers that train you are very knowledgeable and friendly.
All the information for each job is right there and at your finger tips.
Crashes at times.
