  • 1.  Field Software - Looking for advice

    Posted 08-25-2019 10:33
    We use Sage 300 CRE. We are currently using Oracle's Contract Manager software (previously Expedition) and we are looking to replace our field software. We are looking at Procore, RedTeam and Oracle Aconex for PM. If anyone is using one of these and can answer the questions below I would appreciate the feedback. If you are using something you love and I didn't list it, I would love to know more about it. 

    In selecting a field software which software's did you evaluate? 
    What made you select the one you did? 
    What was the implementation process like? 
    How is customer service? 
    What items integrate well with Sage 300 CRE? If you don't use Sage, what is your ERP?  
    What items did you think integrated with your ERP that don't work or work the way you thought? 
    Does operations like it?
    What features does operations use the most? 
    What features did you think you would use and don't, why? 
    What has been the ROI, benefits of implementing it? 
    What was biggest expectation or purchasing the software and did it measure up? Why?
    How are the internal controls?
    Does it have easy to use customization? 

    I appreciate your time.

    Stephanie,
    We use RedTeam, and have found that it doesn't do most of what they sold us on. Reports are nowhere near what they need to be, the WIP is incomplete.  It's a great software for a very small company and integrates well with QBO.  The phone app is also not very well done.
