How did you choose CMiC?
CMiC provided us with all the information, requested materials, and demos we asked for. Paul educated us on the system, the current market, and was patient in our research and progression as a company. His persistence, willingness to help, and CMiC’s workability on price points, gave us the comfort and confidence to move forward.
What solutions from CMiC do you use for the successful operation of your business?
At this point, we use xProjects daily to help manage our projects. We use the Submittals and RFIs the most. We have also used the PCIs. I also use the project reports every week. The more time I spend in the system, the more I learn.
What improvements were seen after CMiC became involved?
I think our organization has been better. CMiC has allowed us to have a “virtual” file cabinet of information. Also, in a technology age, we are able to process electronic documents and the old days of paper are going away. It is nice to provide collaborative memberships to architects, consultants, owners, etc. and gets the project team on the same page.
What are the benefits as they relate to day to day operations, management team, efficiency and growth?
I think the efficiency has been solid. We love the Outlook Plugin and the ease of preparing and processing documents. In a “lean and mean” team approach, our managers and superintendents are able to take on more materials with ease and success.
