Using Viewpoint Team
I used this app during a summer job in between teaching - I like to stay organized so I can see how this helps workers on the jobsite stay up-to-date on their operations.
I am just so impressed by all the features included: materials and service management, finances for each job, and organizing equipment rental. This app has it all!
Because there is so much data to consider, I would recommend using this app with an iPad not necessarily the best for using on a smartphone.
Not quite there yet
Not great for project management documentation/site supervision. Its difficult to use and train those who are not familiar with computers to use. If you don't know the right tricks it just doesn't work.
Viewpoint for Projects has good layout and organizing functions. A lot of options available for security of various files and documentation processes.
It is very cumbersome, difficult to up load and view files. No thumbnail options for viewing pictures make it difficult to preview photos before selecting them to add comments to etc. The internet link is always slow, creating issues with their desktop app and opening and saving files. Also not compatible with AutoCAD or current design software. Not practical for construction documentation management.
No tasks for Romania
For me not good experience because no taskq for west Romania Arad
It looks like a good service, I like to give feedback online but for România looks like no customers joined the platform so no tasks fotbwest of România
You should be able to provide feedback to the companies when they develop new services or new products
Should be panel
It's been solid to use at work and in my personal life there could be a few improvements but it's pretty damn good
It's very sufficient very easy to use can be frustrating from time to time and the main menu tends the lag
Takes up a ton of data and a lot of storage on my phone to keep could have a little better organized main menu
Collaborative Software Works Great for RFIs and Submittals
We've been using Team for over a year now for RFIs, submittals and daily reports. As a project manager/project engineer for the general contractor, I think Team is a huge improvement from using Vista in the past. We have several subcontractors that are uploading submittals and inputting RFIs directly into Team, but I've found that most subs will still use email to transmit these documents. Even if the subcontractor does not use Team for uploading, I like the Team email reminders that are sent out to subcontractors for submittals coming due or late. Design team's use of Team has been more involved. I will upload a submittal or input a RFI and notification is immediately sent out to the design team for review. The design team will then upload the reviewed submittal or the RFI response and notification is sent back to me. I have found that notification from Team may not be sent immediately to me but usually by the end of the day.
Submittal and RFI markups cannot be made directly in Team. The submittal or RFI must be downloaded to Bluebeam, edited/marked up with review comments or responses, and then uploaded to Team again. It would be helpful to have editing features in Team so there isn't an extra step.
Great project management software
For building construction needs
If you're looking for something to help manage your construction needs, look no further. This software helps you track budgets quickly and easily. It also digitalizes your field so that you have a better understanding of the layout you are working with.
Didn't use it long enough to find any cons.
Good support, great implementation, excellent integration into Vista.
The product has come a long way since the original version that just produced submittals. The integration for creating projects in TEAM directly from Vista has so far been seemless. Getting dashboard job cost information from Vista has also been a well received feature. Being able to tag markups on drawings and create Issues on the fly is also a great tool.
TEAM has the potential to be great. There are other very similar products on the market that much stronger feature set. No reason TEAM couldn't easily step up to their level, especially now that Trimble is the owner. It was a very hard decision for us, do we go with Procore and get all the features we need now, but at a higher price and buggy integration, or do we go with TEAM, which has an excellent integration and is cost effective and hope that one day they complete the package. We chose to wait it out with TEAM.
Good only if you have another software that can help with time track/reporting for field employees
easy of printing checks, enrolling employees and pushing it into payroll or Hr module easily.Ease of use and integration between modules and with other applications. We use several other products that we import from and export to.
current reports leave out a lot of necessary data, crystal reports not customized.Lack of strong financial statement writer. Currently using FRx . . . we know that we need to move, but haven't found anything that is as flexible. We cannot get good cost analyst report on equipment use.
Viewpoint For Projects review
Accounting Is EASIER
Decent ERP System for the Construction Industry
Viewpoint is our ERP system for better or worse. The functionality is there for just about everything needed in the construction industry; however, it's not always the most user-friendly. When Viewpoint introduces updates and there are bugs, it can take months for Viewpoint to fix them in a new release. If it's something you need to be fixed now, be prepared to pay Viewpoint to fix the problem.
Covers almost all aspects needed in the construction industry
Easy to create custom reports
Database isn't locked down
Viewpoint will find every way possible to charge you for support
They have a bad habit of pushing out updates without thoroughly testing them
Wasn't fast enough for me
Submittal and RFI modules make it very easy to upload and track the information.
I do not have the ability to select multiple people from contacts to send out a mass email. I also do not have the ability to notify individuals on a project when an urgent document (such as an addendum) is uploaded or changed.
Large learning curve.
Very precise and good financially. Drill down reports are extremely beneficial. It is super helpful to tract costs and collaborates well with heavy bid.
Not user friendly at all and needs what seems to be a good amount of work in order to create good, clean, and professional looking documents for businesses.
