What do you like best?
CMiC allows for the capturing of data in a rigid format, meaning you won't miss/lose important pieces of information. If you have someone who is skilled in software integration, you can set up a system that writes strong, consistent subcontracts.
What do you dislike?
It is often difficult to drill down the information you need and has a steep learning curve. The rigidity also makes it difficult to integrate with other software. When doing cost reviews from the enterprise side, you will often have to have multiple windows open and be prepared to wait if you are a larger contractor because the system often takes a while to load. Also, if you are every doing cost surveys, you will need to use CMiC and discoverer BI in tandem which can lead to headaches.
