A cloud-based accounting and construction management solution for small to mid-sized contractors
One of the biggest strengths of Viewpoint is that they will move mountains to help get something corrected or make improvements to the product. They really want to provide the highest level of customer service and we have pushed the system to its outer limits with our company structure and they have been patient and worked with us. They recognize our level of commitment to ProContractor and tenfold have paid it back to us.
Having the entire package — integration of Estimating, Accounting, and Project Management in a single solution — was clearly so valuable. We’ve been able to set up fantastic business processes! We also received really good customer service right off the bat. We are able to make ProContractor fit the way we work; that right fit allows us to easily modify reports to be the way we want to see things.
Our company has experienced significant growth in both our people and project size over the last five years and we expect this growth to continue. Prior to Viewpoint, we employed several different software programs to support our day-to-day operations. It was our goal to implement one solution to improve overall efficiency and to streamline processes across the company. Viewpoint’s strong reputation and excellent customer references helped support our decision to select ProContractor.
Everything takes to long, setup in horrible, it’s not designed for an estimator seems to be a better fit for an accountant.
Estimating module, project management module, accounting module.
Great software which integrates all main components of running my company
Interface among estimating, accounting/financial, HR, and project management. The mobile module is a plus. All payroll is imported on the daily field reports. The customer service and support is awesome.
I would say there are some reports among hundreds of them that don’t provide the proper information. Specially the unit price reports. It has something to do with the way the data entry is done. The software might seem hard to understand at the beginning but actually is quite simple. Proper training is required.
extremely hard to get training now that clear view has taken acquired product line
We like the digitizing software .
The estimating portion is not user friendly .
Software in not user friendly and difficult to navigate. The take-off software does not compare to other take-off software such as Planswift The training that is offered is very trial and error-ish. I would not recommend this software.
The only thing i like about the software was one aspect of the take-off software that multiple take-offs can be completed simultaneously.
Difficult to use. Noticed a few errors with the estimating side that have to be corrected by support.
Not automated at all. It’s like putting paper on a computer. Too hard to use.
I’m a preconstruction manager. Previous to ProContractor we were simply using Excel which does have it’s drawbacks. It’s tough to sort estimates, and Excel can have the tendency to make mistakes if you’re not dragging across the right cells. It led to us having to triple-check our work.
I had concerns about having one program to do it all (estimating and project management) but ProContractor has eased those concerns. It was a seamless transition, and the handoff went a lot better than expected.
I like the sorting features to sort my areas and alternates. Having the database built into it has been huge. We can capture historical costs a lot better and keep track of them and update them quickly, which is available for every estimator.
