Clearview and Unanet combine to accelerate development of InFocus. Read more...
 

In my last post I reflected a bit on my first year and how thrilled I am to be here. I unpacked a bit around how well customers are supported and how fair our pricing and policies are as compared to other products in our space. I also hinted at how exciting it was to find a ‘Super Car’ engine under the hood when I got here.

 

 

 

I joined Clearview Software just over a year ago and have received an increasingly large number of requests asking me to explain what I found after joining. “So, how does Clearview compare to Deltek” is a weekly – if not daily - question.

 

First off, you need to know that prior to joining Clearview I had an inkling that the ‘engine under the hood’ would be impressive. This was due to the fact that I had previously worked with one of the co-founders and developers. He had developed a real-time accounting/project management system decades ago that was ahead of its’ time. Therefore, I had a pretty good idea that it would be impressive. To be frank, I found it to be way beyond what I imagined it would be and indeed, has functionality surpassing not just ERP software in the Architectural/Engineering/Professional Services vertical markets, but in any market.

 

Sounds bold and self serving, I know. However, after 25 years of working in the A/E ERP space I do not say that lightly. It is an untold story that I will begin to unpack over the coming weeks and months here – and one that I enjoy showing off. Why untold? Well, let me just say that when a company is run by a team of software developers ‘marketing’ is not high on the list of preferred/enjoyable tasks. I think they rate it right up there with raking leaves or putting on suits to attend a large social gathering (sorry guys, had to say it).
