Robust & Intuitive

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: While it is tough to gauge, our efficiency & productivity has increased for better time management and more effective processes.

Vorteile:

The software can handle just about anything! It has drastically changed our efficiency company-wide, especially with the projection/forecasting for our project teams. Having our teams getting live data and immediate access helps them more effectively manage their projects.

Nachteile:

Some of the features within the EM & IN seem to be less of a priority for functionality and user-friendliness.

Very poor implementation and support

2,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Extremely frustrating -- we had multiple on site consultants during our conversion and go live process. We spent more time re-doing what the previous consultant set-up because each one had a "better solution". Be prepared to have an onsite programmer or hire a consultant to help you with custom features. Viewpoint support is TERRIBLE! They expect you to read through numerous "articles" (if you can get the links to open) to solve your own issues. They're based in Portland, OR; therefore, if you're located on the East coast --- forget any help until after noon. They rarely respond during the same day.

Vorteile:

Has robust capabilities and custom reporting options

Nachteile:

The setup was a nightmare and we still have a few issues that are ongoing after nearly 2 years of using the software.

Viewpoint Vista is a cost effective and powerful ERP for contractors

5,0 vor 4 Monaten

Vorteile:

Using Vista

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I am pretty satisfied with Vista.

Vorteile:

The Project Management/Accounting Integration.

Nachteile:

The amount of training it really takes to be successful. Also, if you are not a report writer or large enough company to have one on staff, it can be costly to hire that out.

Great for Task Lists, Hard to Navigate

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I like it better than Sage 100 contractor, but it still seems based in the 90's. it could be much easier to navigate. the people that have been using it for 3 years or more seem to still have some issues with navigating the system.

Vorteile:

I like that you can set up your own task list for the items you use the most.

Nachteile:

its difficult to find reports, unless you know the name of it, or where it is located. it would be nice to be able to run a targeted search.

Vista Support

3,0 vor 8 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall it has been positive. Last year was hard but with the new customer service initiative there has been a big improvement, although there is still a long way to go in that regard.

Vorteile:

There are a ton of options for customization and it's super easy to use once you know how each form works. The grids are amazing and the reporting options are great for customization. The learning base can be a bit confusing when it comes to finding information, but when it comes to actually learning a new feature you can usually figure everything out without needing to place a call to Vista. Also, the knowledge base articles are good when they are sent from support. The main pro of Vista is the possibility. There are a ton of other products with other vendors and within Viewpoint and the options are great.

Nachteile:

With the customization comes a lot of room for errors. Also the release notes for next versions don't feel complete and when you get an issue half the time they tell you it was fixed in the next upgrade and their recommendation is to update as a fix. Also the customer service has come a long way but it still needs work. In the opening speech they mentioned the response times and the resolution times and I don't think I have ever had someone call me back in less than 3 days for my initial contact. Also there are multiple cases created for the same issue anytime it is transferred to a new department. So I have a case that has been open since May 2016, but I'm on my 4th case number so whenever someone gets the new case it looks like its only been open since September.

Extremely customizable software

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

The software itself is customizable and very good overall. Their knowledgebase is extensive, but the search features in it don't yield correct results as often as they should. Vista is very customizable, which is extremely importane. You can create user defined fields and tables. You can also connect to the data via SQL, Excel, etc.

Nachteile:

They have a suggestion box but getting anything implemented takes multiple years the vast majority of the time. Chat support gets a needs improvement. Far too often in the middle of the day no one is available (including today at 2 PM EST).

Antiquated and Bulky

3,0 vor 9 Monaten

Kommentare: I haven't used vista for anything beyond time keeping and basic invoicing, but I feel like it needs an overhaul, but in terms of UI, but also functionality.

Vorteile:

It has many features and groups them all together in one place

Nachteile:

Filling out forms and records is an arduous task, the software balks at the user when fields are not filled out in the precise manner that it expects. Often after filling out an entire record, it is deleted because one field is incorrect or missing.

Great for Large Scale Asphalt Construction Companies!

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: We weren't sure what the best course of action was but ultimately decided to move forward with Vista, instead. After seeing a demo of the product, the decision was a no-brainer. This is a great piece of software, and Vista overall has exceeded our expectations. We have multiple asphalt plants, a concrete plant, trucking company, and asphalt installation crews, so Vista has been a perfect fit. As for the technology, most people are used to the style of windows, which makes for a pretty easy learning curve with Vista. The grid functionality is top-notch as well, being able to switch from an informational view of one item to a list of all items. Viewpoint also offers a cloud environment to host your enterprise system. It's a small fee to pay for peace of mind, and limited IT management on our part. We haven't even taken advantage of everything that it offers yet, and we are STILL thrilled. We can't wait to implement more in 2017, and see what else Vista can do for us.

Vorteile:

The integration across accounts, companies, departments, etc. We've only scratched the surface and been incredibly impressed. Really, I cant say enough good about this product. We love using the cloud environment as well - access Vista from anywhere via browser, if necessary. Makes it easy to work from home on a snowy day!

Nachteile:

Nothing in particular about the product, but we've had responsiveness issues with the billing department - some people are great others, not so much. The tech support department could be more knowledgeable about technology, and IT management in general. Fortunately, we don't need them very often. The cloud environment is clunky with printing in different browsers - always a mixed bag. Checks don't always line up right but using the actual cloud app, no problems what so ever.

A big upgrade from our previous system.

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, we are pleased with our product and the initial training and setup. Most of our problems have been resolved on our own researching compared to having to file support cases. Viewpoint has allowed us to provide better reports to our managers.

Vorteile:

-Intercompany features allow for easy reconciliation and few entries. -Drilldown reports allow easy access to individual transactions -Knowledge Base and Clearview online help are incredible with step by step instructions including screenshots -Shortcut keys allow for easy lookups and use of a wildcard (*) without knowing the exact description -Well organized layout of the modules/programs vs. reports -Able to maintain one vendor master among all companies has helped significantly in our accounts payable department

Nachteile:

-There is a large amount of reports but it's hard to determine which one to use and which parameters to use -Invested time in their financial reporter which is now being phased out and will not be supported in another year -Security setup can be time consuming (separate program for Reports, Forms, Data, etc.)

Great Software!

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

Heavily integrated and breaks down facets of construction industry well using the modules that feed information to each other. I work with the AP module and it is easy to use and understand. The reports offered and useful and easy to manipulate. The equipment module is fabulous as well though we don't use it to its full potential just yet.

Nachteile:

It is difficult to make a change to something posted in a closed month. I was able to find a way to remedy this online and fixed it immediately. Sometimes it does take customer service a while to call you back on a service ticket, however, most answers can be answered by doing research individually in clear view.

to Vista from a custom app

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: The heart of Viewpoint is it's people. There are many software packages with lots of features in the market. The big difference it the staff that you work with before and during conversion as well as the support staff afterward. Viewpoint technical support people are knowledgeable and take the time to work with you to resolve any issues.

Vorteile:

We had spent a decade with a custom built application. The Vista (Viewpoint) system was able to provide all the function we had and needed as well as giving so much more in features. The system is very flexible and can a few setting adjustments can be tailored to fit our needs. The information provided ranges from very detailed to summarized as needed. A powerful system.

Nachteile:

The only cons I can think of revolve around the ability to customize the system. If you are moving to Vista from another app, take the time needed to work with your Viewpoint rep before and during the conversion. We had a few changes to make afterward that would have not been needed had we talked them over with our conversion rep. It will be time well spent.

Viewpoint Vista - A good product but some work to do

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Good integration for a multi-faceted business. Cloud based product with good security and single sign on.

Vorteile:

Viewpoint One web-based project management and financial controls, solid payroll, general ledger and accounts payable package.

Nachteile:

Analytics Reporting on Viewpoint One is very clunky, BI is very limited. Dispatch board from the Service Management module needs more flexibility to prioritize calls and tag/flag calls on the board. Projection tools within Project Management module don't provide real time functionality and are not easy to use.

It's a failure

2,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: So sorry to many of our hundreds of subcontractors that I had originally recommended to this product...several made the jump. All are very unhappy.

Vorteile:

Possibilities to work with Microsoft platform. SQL based and therefore we have the ability to get to the information we really need (all-be-it backdoor).

Nachteile:

Poor execution and support. No system based financials. Poorly structured work flow. Weak asset management. Weak scheduling. Three years later still not working as well as Computer Ease. Just paid to go back top Computer Ease (although it has its own issues).

Goods and bads

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

Great functionality for project management with estimating and accounting integrates between modules and companies extremely well

Nachteile:

Payroll setup needs better documentation/training from Viewpoint. setup can be cumbersome. Project Manager is great for simple jobs but when there a lot of change orders it can be fickle. Support is terrible it takes days for them to get back to you. They get it working yes but always a huge inconvenience if you are a manager with lots of duties

My Review

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

The entire software is simple enough to use while at the time time provides best practice functionality and controls. The Vista accounting module is very strong. Their cloud model is stable and secure.

Nachteile:

Support can be improved. Although they have many support options, I seldom get an answer on first contact. Many times tickets will go 5-7 days before getting a reply.

Vista is useful

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

Integration went well with the help of trainers. It takes several years of using Vista to really get use to it. We are about to move to the cloud version, so there will once again be another learning curve to battle through.

Nachteile:

We've found that the standard Crystal Reports are not very good, and writing custom reports using Crystal Reports is not user-friendly.

Weak on the HR Side

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, it isn't a bad system, especially for payroll, tracking of costs and equipment. It just isn't tops on the HR side.

Vorteile:

Entry of data is easy (Microsoft Access style of entry). Canned reporting features are okay with several exporting options.

Nachteile:

The HR side isn't the most spectacular piece of software. There's no easy way to create your own custom reports. Some access issues exist; such as if you have access to HR but not payroll and there are reports HR needs that are tied to payroll, you're out of luck. One such report is the EEO-1 Report which HR typically handles but it's tied to payroll reporting.

Vorteile:

I like the adaptability of this software. The reports are configurable easily an it is very flexible. The software has many items that are making our team very informed and knowledgeable on the cost status on each of our projects.

Nachteile:

Still learning ALL that it can do and provide. The training processes that VIEWPOINT provides helps to overcome the initial issue of understanding the new programs.

Tool is exceptional

Vorteile:

Easy to use and follow. You can customize your windows how ever you like. Reports are also easy to follow

Nachteile:

Depending on number of licenses that are purchase sometimes is an issue to sign in. Also when everyone is using Viewpoint it takes longer for batches to post.
