See what our customers are saying about CMPRO
In my experience, CMPRO is the best CM tool on the market. The workflow engine is extremely powerful and very flexible. it enables us to create very complicated custom work processes to track documents and drawings through their revision processes. It allows us to track software and hardware parts/programs over the products lifetime from design and contracting through manufacturing, maintenance/sustainment, and ultimately through disposal. We can store every type of document related to the process (MSWord, Excel, CAD, .pdfs, etc.) It is flexible enough to allow a range of processes from simple document storage in a repository, or to require strict revision control of changes to drawings and software updates.
A user can become proficient in using CMPRO’s functionality with minor training. The function/format of the search, create, and detail screens is standardized across the product. If you can use one, you can use all of them. Professional Systems Associates (PSA), the tools creator, is responds quickly to problem reports. They are also extremely responsive to user suggestions for new and/or improved user interface suggestions from their clients.
Over the 15 years that I have been involved with the tool, they have made major changes to the software multiple times to make it more flexible, and powerful so even the most complicate workflows could be designed and automated by on-site administrative users.
Reporting is made simple by making all standard search screen results exportable. The user can simply choose between a variety of output formats (including, xls, xlm, txt, pdf, etc.) before running the search. In addition, there is an ad hoc reporting feature that makes ALL fields in a table retrievable and allows more complicated criterion filtering and more extensive formatting possible.
Overall, I have been extremely pleased with the tool and have NOT found any other tool we explored to be superior.Sophia P.

As a CMPRO DBA I log a lot of hours on CMPRO. I find the software very easy to use, but only gave it 4 stars because some of my users disagree with that. In response, the CMPRO user interface is being changed to make it easier for the average user to perform their jobs.
One of the big Pros of CMPRO is the Customer Service. I know that if I need some help or changes or explanations or training, PSA is there to help me out. Using the built in issue reporting I get my issues straight to our dedicated contact or I can also call them direct. The issue reporting also allows regular users to turn in their issues.
The training for CMPRO is also well done. We were able to set up monthly training sessions with one of the CMPRO trainers that is done on-line. The Users Guide that is built into CMPRO is well written and easy to navigate. The CMPROficiency website contains lots of information and tutorials to help with everything from process to just use.
The annual CMPROficiency training introduces users to new developments and also allows users to connect with other CMPRO users and learn of ways that they are using CMPRO.
One Pro and Con is that the software is continually evolving, from a different user interface to make it easier to navigate to added built in forms that follow CM requirements to new privilege structures.
Our group has also requested a few customized forms to be built for our use. The process is easy and the support throughout is excellent.
CMPRO is the most comprehensive end-to-end CM database I have used. From the intelligent, process driven, workflows to the dynamic asset associations, this tool drives efficiency into evey aspect of business.Todd L
