WIPanalytics is our flagship product designed to keep the entire WIP process within the Vista system and eliminate the need for using spreadsheets for your WIP process. WIPanalytics seamlessly integrates with Vista Project Management and Job Cost systems to make the job of generating monthly WIP schedules faster and more efficient while providing improved visibility of historical WIP data for managers and executives.
Our fully-integrated solution eliminates WIP information silos by consolidating all monthly WIP data into a single managed data source. The overall result is a far more efficient WIP process that simplifies WIP review meetings, and make it easier to forecast future needs and opportunities.
WIPanalytics includes a variety of components to provide a complete tool set for managing your WIP process. Components include:
Grouping Control - A feature provides very flexible means to group and aggregate jobs and contracts into WIP items to meet all your WIP reporting needs.
WIP History - Full history of WIP data by month and tracking of information not currently stored in Vista such as earned revenue and profit. This historical data allows us to provide highly effective management reports to improve the effectiveness of management review at all levels.
Workoff - A tool that allows you to calculate the burn off of unearned cost, revenue, profit, and man hours in to the future. We provide automated methods for this calculation, or it may be manually overridden, giving you an accurate forecast of future revenues and manpower requirements.
Grouped Jobs - An alternative WIP process for small jobs that allows you to quickly review and adjust small or short term projects. These small jobs are rolled up on WIP reports by Company/Department/ and Project Manager, allowing you to review these jobs in an efficient manner.
ASC606 Support - Full support for ASC606, allowing users to select types of costs be deferred, and the progressing method by job. Once set up the system automatically calculates the recognized and deferred cost and revenue each month.
Multiple dashboards based on historical WIP data provide valuable information to help you better understand how projects have performed over time.
vpPROJECTIONS was developed as an alternative method for users to maintain cost projections in Vista by Viewpoint. It offers a variety of features to make the process of projecting units, hours and cost fast, accurate and secure.
vpPROJECTIONS offers a variety of tools and methods for calculating accurate cost projections. The system allows projections to be performed at the Phase-Cost Type or different roll-up levels including Cost type. Roll-ups are maintained, so even when calculating at the full detail level, projection data is summarized at phase group, cost type and job levels.
System generated flags indicate a variety of conditions to alert you to items that require attention, such as negative cost/hours/units to go, over-budget conditions, and gross profit drop. Automatic projection updates can be generated that correct conditions such as actual cost/hours/units exceeding projected amounts. A job close-out function spins through projection detail and sets projected amounts equal to actual amounts at the end of the project.
The projection forms allow for various inputs (% Complete, Units to Date, Projected Cost/Hours, Cost/Hours to Go, etc.). Cascading computation methods are controllable by user and can be set at the selected projection level.
vpPROJECTIONS offers a fast, reliable alternative to existing Vista projection systems, and when used in conjunction with WIPanalytics offers a complete solution for the monthly WIP process.

Bidding new work is one of the most critical processes for any construction firm. Accurate tracking of the status of all upcoming bids can make the difference between winning a job, and coming in second. BIDanalytics is a powerful solution for tracking bid information and providing a flexible workflow to insure that bids are moving through the process efficiently.
Some of the key features of this product include:
A form that allows you to set bidding and capture goals by department by month, and reports/dashboards that compare the goals to actuals.
A Bid Board that tracks and manages bidding activity. The Bid Board tracks a wide variety of pertinent information such as key bid dates, prequalification requirements, pre-bid meetings, and categorization information such as bid tier, size category, owner type, project type, etc.
An attribute tracking system designed to tracks all attributes of a project such as OCIP, LEED, Safety attributes, Market Recovery, etc. The system ships with a substantial set of attributes, but attributes can be added and edited to meet your specific needs. This information is available in Job Cost if the bid is awarded.
A flexible workflow tool is also included to track and ensure that critical milestones are assigned and completed in a timely manner.
The ability to add highly probable jobs to our Work-Off system allowing you to project future revenues, gross profit, and manpower requirements of both existing WIP jobs, as well as the highly probably bid jobs.
When combined with our vpDASHBOARD product, bidding trends, comparison to competitors and other key information can be viewed to improve how you bid in the future.
Setting up security for new users and related Project Managers can be very time consuming requiring the involvement of several people and working in multiple Vista forms. SECURITYmanager consolidates the user setup into a single form and automates the setup process making the task of adding new users, and maintaining security for existing users, simpler and far more efficient.
When combined with our vpDASHBOARD product, you can quickly review your system security in a variety of ways to spot potential issues.
In today's construction environment every software system is designed to collect data, but unless you can properly use that data to visualize how your projects are running, in a timely manner, that collected data can quickly lose value.
vpDASHBOARD is a tool that is fully integrated with Vista by Viewpoint, yet runs independent of Vista in an environment that is accessible from your desktop, tablet, or phone. The dashboards in vpDASHBOARD have been designed by industry experts to provide you with key project data to help insure timely recognition of potential problems that may affect project outcomes.
A wide variety of visualizations are available to present information in an intuitive manner.
