It is clear CFMA members have provided you an abundance of options to consider. To answer your original question, there are several blog articles available that may help you with your decision found at https://www.corecon.com/blog.
Have you considered Corecon Technologies product 'Corecon V8' and their integration with QuickBooks Pro, Premier, Enterprise, QuickBooks online, SAP Business 1, Xero, and Sage 50 Canada? You will find that the price of Corecon's offering is far more palatable than the Products you listed and requires no additional plugins or apps that most of the products you mentioned require? Estimating, Lead Opportunity Tracking, Scheduling, QC, PM, Contract Management, Procurement, HR, Equipment Management, Safety, Corecon Mobile and TeamLink Portal are all part of the Flagship product. There 'all-in-one' pricing means there are no additional Modules, plugins or apps to buy.
Corecon allows you to use these integrated accounting software packages to manage your General Ledger, AJE's, AP, AR, Banking, Credit Card, G&A Expenses, Balance Sheet, and Income Statement. This provides Finance, Project Management, Production, Contract Admin, Procurement, Estimating, Engineering, HR, Field Personnel, QC & Safety team members the means of managing their processes and data on a User Interface designed specifically for their role. Corecon was designed for all of these user roles and continues to provide the Finance team the internal controls, integrated data, analytics, dashboards and executive level reporting they need. In addition, Corecon has developed a highly evolved Internal Control, Document and Workflow Approval Process that users can easily custom design and manage. Corecon tracks and manages Prevailing Wage and Union Labor. It is also easier to find finance and accounting candidates that already know the accounting packages that Corecon Integrates with. Your Public Accountants, Auditors, Bonding Underwriters usually know these accounting packages and will not have to maintain additional staff that can navigate the far more expensive software you listed.
I have implemented and trained users on Sage 300 CRE, Sage 100 Contractor, and Corecon for many years. I also served as a Controller or CFO in Construction for many years before that. From these perspectives, I can offer insights on these products and your decision-making process. If you want to discuss any of these options further, please reach out to me.Thank you,
