In 2017 I was tasked with the responsibility of identifying a construction software program that would suit our needs. Humphries Construction undertakes all construction activities including small residential alterations, large multi property development projects, to multi-million dollar commercial builds.
The features that we looked for were ongoing (local) support, a cloud-based system to ensure access at all times and for a tendering process, reasonably priced and easy to use for all of our staff (on-site and in the office.) After researching many products available, we narrowed the potential software down to four, which included CATProjects. CATProjects ticked all of our boxes and came out the clear winner.
The initial set up and transferring of our projects into the new system seemed overwhelming; but the CATProjects support staff assisted us through the process and were easy to communicate with. We had initial training and although we had some doubts that our staff would handle purchase orders and timekeeping via a tablet (rather than a paper system), they all found it extremely easy to use right from the start.
We are still in our first year of using the software and are still discovering (with delight) some of the functions. The ongoing support of the CAT team has proven to be excellent – they are always a pleasure to deal with. Using a cloud-based system has changed the way we do business and made us more efficient. We also use a lot less paper, which has fit with our sustainability and environmental policies.
I have no hesitation in recommending CAT software…
