Candy from a Post Contract Perspective

4,0 vor 2 Wochen Neu

Kommentare: As a Post Tender Manager, our projects are build from 40% sub contractors, for which a relook at the sub contractor manager would make a huge difference in the usage. The estimation, planning and forecasting module is more than adequate and shines above all other applications. I would not attempt to commercial manage a Project without the presence of Candy in the estimation and live cycle of the Project, in terms of pricing Variation orders, EOT, and financial management and reports functionalities available.

Vorteile:

The ability to clearly identify resources, pricing from first principle and being able to evaluate the overall estimate from many angels. Candy has a very powerful reporting function and works smooth and efficient, which allows the user to ensure all elements are considered prior to tender submission.

Nachteile:

The Sub Contractor Manager does not allow for flexibility to execute the works and a different procurement strategy without huge rearrangement of the architecture of pricing methodology. The QTO does not allow a multiuser function, allowing multiple measurement clerks to measure simultaneously.

From an expert-level user

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

- I love having the level of information to which I can do costing, be as accessible to me as this software does it - the ability (though very very very under-utilized) to convert omney to a timeline is exciting

Nachteile:

- the support line is geared to the average user. Not much in the wat for expert users - the inability to integrate with other big-name financial packages is a downer - a one fits all fee structure is frustrating. Because we're not all on the same level of skill.

Vorteile:

One of its standout features is its comprehensive suite of tools that cover every aspect of the construction process, from initial cost estimation to project management and control. This level of integration helps streamline workflows and improve efficiency for construction companies. Another aspect that users often appreciate is Candy's user-friendly interface and intuitive design. Despite its robust capabilities, the software is accessible and easy to use, which is crucial for ensuring widespread adoption within construction teams.

Nachteile:

One potential downside could be the learning curve associated with mastering the software. While Candy is known for its user-friendly interface, its comprehensive suite of tools and features may still require some time and effort to fully understand and utilize effectively.

Candy as an Estimation Software

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I always recommend to my colleagues and friends that CCS is the best estimation software for estimation purpose. I do believe that developer will maintain the quality and keep updating it as per the new requirement of digital era. We have variety of estimation software in the market and the developer are giving attractive packages to sell their product but CCS is still the best option. I believe that it would enhance the demand of this software if it becomes more competitive.

Vorteile:

I have used many estimation software but I found CCS more User Friendly and the reason behind is that it's developed by the estimators keeping in mind the requirements of best estimation practices. I am using it since 2013 and never experienced that I was unable to furnish any type of report/summary which was requested by my employer.

Nachteile:

When the CCS file get bigger the software functionality get slower. Recently, I have worked on a project with around 77 buildings, each building comprised very extensive BOQ and there were around 19,500 pay items. It was taking quite extra times to finalize the worksheets and I spent many extra hours to generate the excel version from CCS file. This issue must be resolved.

Vorteile:

Dear Lulanga Thank you for your review on Candy. Your feedback and continued support is highly appreciated and important to us here at CCS. Have you tried our new and improved Candy QTO3? Changes include: 1. Automatic vertical scrolling to Variable and Detail sections of Take-off sheet 2. More intuitive drop down box to Units of the Variable section of Take-off sheet 3. Option to preserve line colours for PDF and DWG formats. This is a tick box on the drawing page (Drawing list) 4. Snap selection stored as per latest user selection. Does not change when "Count" tool used 5. Measurement bill default setting is Full description with No Blank lines. User may alter this setting 6. Copy and Paste from one drawing to another now available 7. When updating the Measurement bill, the system now does not close all drawings

Candy review

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Have been using Candy from when it was still known as "Marsbar" in the 1980's, in tender planning and project control & monitoring in both building construction and civil engineering projects.

Vorteile:

01. Can use a bill of quantities to allocate resources to tender- or construction programmes and therefore come to sensible programme activity durations very quickly. 02. Access to help (have built up a good relationship with the reps over the years & have always had excellent service). 03. The ease of using macros, saves me loads of time, especially when linking multiple activity strings.

Nachteile:

Used to be able to import more fields when importing new programme activities; would like the option of importing text 01 to text 05 as well.

Candy in my workspace...

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I would definitely recommend Candy to any Construction business. You have to keep up with changing times to stay ahead of your competition and Candy is one of the best ways to do so. The courses that you can do with the program is also fantastic and you learn so much.

Vorteile:

What I like most about Candy is the ease of using the product. Once you are set up and start going it makes your work a lot easier. It safes time and money, and in business time is money. I love how I can do my programming, subcontracting and pricing all at once. Project Management is made more efficient with Candy.

Nachteile:

Initially getting all the "meat" for estimating of projects (Masters) can be a challenge. Pricing per license can get a little expensive if you do not make use of the program a lot.

Life with Candy

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Time saving, multiple project management and ease in project management and control

Vorteile:

Working with Candy the past few years has increased the accuracy of the estimates, valuation and project control and management incredibly.

Nachteile:

The only concern I have with candy is that if an error is made it is not easily correctable. The full integration of CCS and Buildsmart and QTO is complex and knowledge of the system and integration is learnt with numerous errors and trails. The course provide cover the scope but the executions differ from project to project.

Awesomeness of Candy

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: It has been great. I am pleased with the ease with which I manage my projects.

Vorteile:

The link between Estimating, Planning and Valuation is the best for me. A project is easily managed and the cost is accurately monitored. In the same program, one is able to manage the subcontractors should there be any.

Nachteile:

Creating several duplicate files because of the inability of the software to keep a trail of modifications.

Candy- A better alternative software for Project Management

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: It is a good alternative software for project management. Please try it, recommended.

Vorteile:

I have experience with MS Project and Oracle Primavera for project management works and during the initial period, I struggled a lot to learn these softwares. But recently I got introduced with Candy and it is really simple to understand and more powerful to work. It is the most suited software for the construction firm and price-wise also the preferable option to go with Candy.

Nachteile:

It always difficult to correct the mistakes and functional wise, MS Project is far better to compare with Candy. The popularity of this software is very low and there are very limited numbers of online tutorials available for Candy.
