"No support, constant glitches."

What do you like best?

It has the potential to be great. It is an organized program with many different reports.Allows you to maintain a customer database, keep a calendar, upload files all in one place.

What do you dislike?

There are always glitches. Our balances are always off because the system has a glitch and changes a number and then you spend hours trying to figure out why the balances are off. When you try to contact support they always tell you 'I have created a ticket for this item' or 'it is in programming' and if they fix anything, it takes months. They try to charge you for any little change you want in a report. We have one report that is always off because of a glitch in the system they can't fix so we have to use a different report but the other report doesn't have everything we need displayed on it. They said it would cost $4,000 to add two columns to a report.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'm not aware of what other software is out there but if you're between CMIC and another program that does everything else CMIC does, I would go with the other program. It is not worth the hassle of dealing with support, and having them try to charge you every time you need them to fix something within their flawed program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keep records of all accounting processes, maintain a customer database, run reports to view different balances.

"Solid but Clunky"

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

CMiC can be very powerful but also can create an equally powerful headache. If you want a permanent system move, look to other softwares since this one seems to be lagging behind.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Subcontract awarding, cost updating and approval, project accounting. CMiC has created a centralized data source for us but at the same time has

"Simple yet powerful with a few issues"

What do you like best?

I like that the software encompasses all parts and items of construction accounting. The software allows you to enter whatever information you'd like and will highlight red if it is incorrect. Other programs will not let you input information due to the settings - but many times there are exceptions!

What do you dislike?

I dislike that quite often I will go through every line item needed and enter a value for the retention for example and when I refresh the page, the values entered do not save and are recalculated to the base 10% and I have to go and re enter the information all over again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a good software that most will be able to catch on with ease. It does have a few glitches that mighht be considered annoying but if you can deal with that, it is okay.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software streamlines the construction accounting process. It also helps keep you organized and on track with your tasks as it requires one thing to be done in order to complete another.

"CMIC Review"

What do you like best?

CMIC is a great software to track clients, design firms, owners, and subcontractors. It is great that everything is linked from meeting minutes to subcontracts. I also like that you can jump between multiple jobs at once.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how the software is not "smart" in the fact that if a firm is entered even slightly different by someone, then a new firm in CMIC is created. You can end up with 40 of the same architect!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I use CMIC, it is for project management needs. I use it for meeting minutes, RFI logs and submittal logs, as well as managing subcontracts on multiple projects at one time. It is not the most user intuitive software, and it could definitely be made easier to interface with. However, managing all of these project management needs in one program is a huge benefit I realized. From the alternatives my peers in the industry have used, I would say that CMIC is the most beneficial out there at this time.

"Great Construction-Focused ERP System!"

What do you like best?

I love that this system is specialized for the Construction industry. The Project Management and Subcontract Management modules are some of the highlights

What do you dislike?

Though I love the system as a whole, I think some of the reports could use some work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're in the Construction industry, this should be your go-to system!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This system is able to get all of our accounting needs completed. Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Payroll and even Subcontract Management and Project Management are all done in CMiC.

"Very outdated but easy to use. "

What do you like best?

I like that it's very easy to use, simple and straight forward however it seems like its very outdated. Makes a nice template for sending out RFI, submittals and tracking transmittal.

What do you dislike?

You need java for it and it crashes very often on you. I highly recommend moving to a different and more up to date construction software like Procore.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Just sending out RFI, submittals and tracking transmittal.
