"Pro Contractor a Maybe"

What do you like best?

I reviewed this ;product along with some others for a client so that they could have choices and options. I found that this is a reasonable program that does many of the things that we look for like PR Management,, Reporting, Charting, Estimating. The thing I like best is it does all these things in a single product package.

What do you dislike?

One thing I can say the mobile app that we tried, is very shaky. For some reason the data does not sync up/ The reports are not showing the complete layout as opposed to the PC version. After my review of this product, I did find out that they since had updates to the app and I hear it runs better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As I mentioned earlier in this review. If you are a small business and you want to get basic management and accounting started, etc. You can achieve it. If you are planning to use it in conjunction with the mobile app, make sure to get the updated version..

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

It did not solve any business problems, however for a small business looking to get a basic job done, this product could help.

"Good contractor software package with some aggravating Quirks:"

What do you like best?

It makes doing takeoffs much easier than doing so by hand and allows importation of CAD files or images (.pdf). I haven't used the digitizer feature (despite having one in my desk drawer), so I can't comment on it's effectiveness, but that functionality also exists.

What do you dislike?

There are some aggravating quirks that make the software more difficult than necessary. One is the double/triple/et cetera clicking when tracing lines on a plan. This creates unnecessary and sometimes deleterious points. Another problem is the program defaults to autosave every minute or so and there is just enough delay to be distracting and annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't spend the money on the training to go along with the software package, it's incredibly costly and was not as helpful as what I have since learned from colleagues with previous experience with the software.

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

We the program for estimation for the purposes of bidding new projects.

What Construction Suites solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"A Good contractor software package "

What do you like best?

It makes doing takeoffs much easier than doing so by hand and allows importation of CAD files or images (.pdf).Consistent cost metrics with management of the catalog pricing. Ability to create assemblies that allowed quicker estimates Easy comparison between estimates. Automatic and error free estimate calculations.

What do you dislike?

One of the reasons that we purchased the software is that we thought that it was compatible with View Point. We wanted to be able to download our starting estimate into View Point directly as the starting budget for the project. There is no compatibility. The solution to do this was a custom Excel sheet that View Point wanted to charge us for.

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

It helps me make estimates for my contractors when they have irrigation jobs. Everything we need is in one location from takeoff, estimating, project management and accounting.

"Great Product! Great Support!"

What do you like best?

Easy to use! Nice reporting and nice electronic approval system. We also use the mobile component which has allowed our field personal to better communicate job site performance to the office staff.

What do you dislike?

Report/Software modifications are somewhat challenging. It's expense. Cost is per license. Unused licenses are not refunded.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's expensive, but well worth the money. Each component that you add on costs additional money. Whether it be estimating, mobile, inventory, etc.

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

We have automated several processes: payroll, a/p approval, a/r invoicing.

"Too much work"

What do you like best?

Coming from american contractor, it doesn’t seem like there is anything that procontractor has to offer that is better

What do you dislike?

Very time consuming and too detailed. Finding simple reports takes a lot of time to find. Too much detail is asked and the set up of the program is horrible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out other programs. Pro contractor takes a long time to set up and implement

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

No benefits so far. We recently migrated from American Contracors and it has been a headache

"Good software but complicated interface"

What do you like best?

The software was good for financial subcontracts, and kept a great record of everything.

What do you dislike?

The interface was clunky, though I had to use a VPN to access the software as it doesn't work on Mac. Also, learning curve is incredibly steep.

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

I created contracts on there. It was able to produce calculations without error easily enough.

"Bully and cumbersome "

What do you like best?

It ties things together better than the previous construction software we used before

What do you dislike?

There are way to many screens and places to enter the exact same information. Way to many steps involved to do anything.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Think long and hard before you switch. It's bulky and cumbersome to get anything done quickly

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

We replaced Sage with this. Some things are better yes but it takes way longer to do anything.
