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 - Tracking Jobs has never been easier

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: As a new user a 3+ years ago to Vista, I was able to easily jump in to get an understanding of the system overall. Today I am still learning new ways to improve our processes as each module can have so many options for tracking jobs.

Vorteile:

The software has sooooo many options for tracking jobs. All components of a job (AP, payroll, billing, etc) are able to be tracked in Vista. The reporting is easy to track and understand. The options for customization are endless. We are able to create custom reports on the fly to accommodate our needs specific to job type or PM.

Nachteile:

There are so many options and features that it can be confusing or hard to learn all the steps. There are so many features that have to filled out when entering data into the system in order to get accurate data out of the system that a new user can feel overwhelmed. For example setting up rates for job cost can easily be entered incorrectly if you do not enter every possible combination.

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 letztes Jahr

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 7 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 6 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.

Using the Vista software

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

The ability to manage security in different ways so only the data you want users to see is a huge benefit. Email capabilities for sending invoices to AR Customers was a huge improvement. The AP invoice approval process saves a lot of time tracking down people to get an invoice approved for payment.

Nachteile:

The ability to have more than one MS Invoice Edit batch open with MS Invoices to deliver has been a challenge as the software will send blank invoices to customers. Since moving to the cloud environment with Viewpoint One the users have complaints of lagging data entry times and payroll processing has been slower.

Vista, Field Time Console Product Review

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

The best thing about Vista is the "one-stop-shop" vision they have been striving for. Everything Accounting (AP, AR, Cash Management, GL, Job Billing, Payroll), Document Management (RFIs, Submittals, Purchase Orders, Subcontracts, etc.), Project Management (PM, Job Cost, Service Management, etc.) including a host of other options including Equipment Management, Inventory management, a Business Analytics & reporting feature. It is also highly customizable.

Nachteile:

The only downside I would say is that some of the training for customization is considered billable or is outsourced to a third-party developer / partner

Have been using live on Vista by Viewpoint since Sept 2012

4,5 vor 9 Jahren

Vorteile:

The best part is the amount of customization that can be done. You are not limited to the fields "out of the box". It was the only software that we tested that allowed us to do that. Also, in accounting I like that you can bring a transaction back into a batch to be able to "fix" it if necessary. The amount of information at your fingertips is also great. What we needed was something that brought Accounting and Project Management together - and Viewpoint does an excellent job of that for us. Also, we have always had excellent support when needed. Now that we have worked with Viewpoint for almost 3 years - I can't imagine what I would do without it.

Nachteile:

The initial set-up was time-consuming and somewhat daunting, but that would probably true whenever changing software from 1 vendor to another. I honestly can't think of anything I like least. The amount of customization available means that I can change things if necessary to suit how I would like to use the product.

Good for a broad range of companies

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

They have modules for most aspects of any construction business. There are tools to allow adding custom fields, validations, lookups, and even complete custom tables for those who want to go beyond the canned software. We built an extensive safety program on their custom tables. Being a standard SQL database has allowed us to integrate with other software as well.

Nachteile:

They are playing catch-up on the mobile side. They've got several components they are working to get integrated into the back end that should provide the needed mobile access.

I have used Viewpoint software since 1995

4,0 vor 9 Jahren

Vorteile:

I like the fact that with the exception of our bidding software and blacktop plant tickets software, everything is integrated so information entered hits every required module without duplicate entry. The information from our blacktop plant and bidding software can easily be imported into Vista.

Nachteile:

Viewpoint is sometimes, in my opinion, slow to add processes being used by many of our customers and vendors. For instance, we cannot bill our vendors electronically or add attachments to employee payroll checks sent by email. They sometimes have steps that seem to be unnecessary. For example, when entering cash receipts, if you wish to record a discount taken you must go to a second screen (Payment detail) to enter the discount. You must then check a box that says "remove input restriction". It should not be necessary to go into another screen to make changes and you should not then have to do an additional step of checking a box to record discount.

Review of Viewpoint Software

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, we love Viewpoint. It is one of the better construction software on the market today. Viewpoint listens to the needs of its users and is always striving to improve the product.

Vorteile:

Viewpoint is very user friendly and easy to use. It allows you to integrate the accounting functions without having to use a different software. It is a great fit for the construction industry.

Nachteile:

I did not like the Financial Management system. But viewpoint listened and they are coming out with a new financial software.

Highly Customizable Construction ERP

4,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

The customizability of Vista is by far my favorite. We have created a variety of custom reports to help increase efficiencies and present information according to a user's desire.

Nachteile:

Vista sometimes pushes out updates that don't seem to be completely vetted. Updates will sometimes create more problems than they fix and users have to wait until Viewpoint fixes the additional issues.

Kommentare: Great Software, it you want to customize it they can do it or have a third party vendor that can do it.

Vorteile:

Extensive Import Module - Saves tons of data entry time Allow tons of 3rd party vendors to create great supplemental products Great customization so it can be set up to what is important to your company

Nachteile:

I wish every form had a grid tab view available In Material Sales, I wish you could enter multiple products on 1 ticket

Robust but Very Difficult

Vorteile:

Very robust software that can do just about anything from finances (contracts, purchasing, forecasting, billings, etc), project management (RFIs, submittals, drawing tracker, etc.) to HR (timecards, training, etc.)

Nachteile:

VERY difficult to learn and get used to the dynamics. It takes a lot of stick time to understand how things work and the best way of doing them.

The Positive Review are Not Possibly Legitimate

1,0 vor 6 Jahren

Nachteile:

This software is a joke. It is so extremely limited in what it can do. In the case that you can actually get someone on the phone from Vista to discuss your concerns or suggestions, you will always find yourself hearing the words "this is a known issue", resulting in a "case closed" mentality. I'm convinced there are less than 3 people on their entire support/customer service team. We routinely won't hear back for 3+ weeks on urgent issues, even if we call to "escalate" our case and despite paying per month for support. I wouldn't wish this software on my worst enemy. Don't buy their lies about the exciting features and flashy demos: the software does not do what they claim it can do.

Vista Review

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

I really do like working in Vista. There may be some tasks that take a bit longer than in our previous operating system but then Vista makes up for in in other areas by far. The online help (Chat) is a great help and the Knowledge Base is a wonderful resource.

Nachteile:

I think it takes too long for support to get back to us. By the time they do, I generally can't remember the details about the ticket I put in and sometimes I can't even remember the issue. I have to go out to Clearview, log in and look at my ticket.
