CostMANAGER Express and Enterprise Feature Comparison
Posted on: November 28th, 2012 by

What is Kildrummy® CostMANAGER Express?

Kildrummy® CostMANAGER Express (KXP) provides smaller projects and businesses a way to deploy Kildrummy® CostMANAGER in an efficient and timely manner. To aid in this, KXP is designed around a standardised database template and a pre-built operations guide. These elements shorten the time from purchase to your team being able to use the application. Express also includes our import and export technology: Kildrummy® DataEXCHANGE (KDE).

What’s the difference between Express and Enterprise?

Express is designed to be deployed quickly and without configuration, so the training course is one and a half days, rather than the four required for a full Enterprise course. Express is pre-configured, and is deployed without an implementation phase. This streamlines the deployment. Furthermore, Express is cheaper. The trade-off is that Express configuration is locked to an initial configuration, and does not support the flexibility that Enterprise provides.

Kildrummy® CostMANAGER Enterprise (KCM) expands upon what Express has to offer. Whilst Express offers a simplified version of the Kildrummy® CostMANAGER, Enterprise is a fully featured and customisable system. An example of this are Document and Budget Item configuration. Enterprise allows you to edit your fields and columns, to configure to your needs. Express has far more limited database customisation.
