Pros: We're a construction company, so we use A-site as an information distribution website across our construction site teams and external consultants alike. I like the ease of setting up colleagues & distributing to multiple members of the site team and their ease of access. I believe that uploading drawings and superseding is very simple and the amount of information you can put onto the site when setting up projects is great. The layout is incredibly easy to use and I like that you can select the folder permissions to allow certain team members to see certain aspects etc. Thats a great feature if used appropriately. The overall presentation of the drawings is excellent and I love that you can view an overlay of 2 different drawing revisions so that its easy to spot where revisions & changes have been made - great feature. When I have had issues, your team have been quick to react and very informative and helpful, I cannot fault them!

Cons: It can be quite complicated to set up new projects and sometimes the drawing uploader crashes. On some occasions, drawings have not uploaded at all. frustrating. Additionally, the build of the site with classic view and Adoddle 17 view is rather frustrating, as the classic view looks very dated - I believe steps should be made to incorporate the old style database into a new website - or at least revamp it. If you hadn't had any training on A-site or not taken the time to navigate you would get lost easily and make mistakes. Luckily I am well versed in classic view now so I find it relatively easy to follow.

Overall: As a company, we have benifited from using this softeware quite well. We use it as a drawing issue and distribution cloud - So that our site teams and external consultants have a simple way of accessing the most up to date drawings we have issued. This obviously saves time for ourselves from having to distribute multiple drawings to multiple people at multiple times via multiple emails etc. But also on paper costs of having multiple drawings posted to consultants etc. The site is relatively easy to set up (With proper training) and navigate, so we have never had any issues from anyone trying to find something - but that is more to do with us setting appropriate file names etc. Although A-site does give us the opportunity to do that.

Pros: I like the ease of moving files, copying structures, metadata is my favourite new function. Great for super users like myself that created the projects and sets all permissions. The idea of checkout works well too, combines multiple programs into one. Is easy, simple and multi-functional. The Adoddle Help robot is fabulous, on all of my training sessions to new consultants i tell them about this as works well as it changes depending on where you are in the software and you can have help within seconds.

Cons: Least the lack of admin settings, attributes, workflows, purpose of issue etc. Having to change interface back to classic when i am so utterly satisfied with adoddle is inconvenient. Not being able to 'unlink' is extremely annoying, simple reverse functions are lacking. Deactivating works so well for removing, activating incase you made a mistake. The use of linking is used in my day to day document control but not being able to unlink is not as easy, also multi-links to more than once location done with one click would be a great idea. I link files to multi projects and to repeat multiple times is time consuming.

Overall: A better learning platform, made training alot easier as everything is a right click away. Saved me a lot of time also, more time to learn new apps on Asite and less time figuring out functions myself.

A good collaborative software tool for the storage and submission of contractual documentation.

Pros: The software has customised features to administer NEC3 contracts effectively. There's a convenient section for the project contract data which is updated as compensation events are submitted and approved/rejected via the system itself. This makes it very convenient to monitor the financial health of a project. It also has built-in sections to submit and respond to requests for information, early warnings and general communications that need to be tracked and archived. Very convenient tool to manage projects effectively.

Cons: The user interface and mobile app are horrendously poor experience in this day and age. Although we only use the project forms element, the website is very slow and dated. Pages and documents/attachments are not intuitive to navigate and download. Could be much much better with a clear redesign. Up time has been an issue recently too, many server timeouts although support have been good at responding with the typical 'just wait please'.

Overall: Convenient project management tool to communicate, upload and store archived project data.

Pros: Easy login and relatively good markup tools. Ability to set up dialogue in application and follow up on changes.

Cons: Search facility is very poor and relies too much on the user directing it to the location. Front end is very unhelpful and does not easily allow full visibility of project tasks outstanding. Classic view is much better, however administrators and the company clearly have an agenda to promote Adoddle interface as the system defaults to this on login. Drawing comparison tools are not as slick as other packages and dialogue on markup tools is not very versatile. Running discussions on drawings can be frustrating as it doesn't have a natural conversation feel due to being difficult to view all comments and responses at the same time. Used it on and off for the last nine years and never seems to get any easier to use compared with other software tools.

This is one of the better collaboration software systems out there but still lacks functionality.

Pros: Ease of use and availability of files to all user when uploaded. Intuitive interface for the most parts.

Cons: This software still has a long way to go to be good as there are several major functionality problems, noted as follows. Searching is different to expected and needs to get used to and should be improved to be more user friendly. Folder displays sub folders content which is rather confusing and not like any other software such as windows explorer and there should be a toggle to turn this "feature" on and off. Uploading files is complex and there is no intelligence in the software so all data has to be input manually. A large amount of the uploading could be automated from file names using a input mask or similar which would automate uploading for ease. The file viewing system is total rubbish and several users in my practice could not get it to work at all and it crashed a lot of the time so we had to resort to downloading all the time.

Overall: Collaboration is marginally better than email as the files are all in one place.

Pros: Document control is very good once people are up to speed on the software. The ability to find documents especially on larger projects with numerous participants is very useful to us. Document Audit/ history is very good.

Cons: Security on folders is cumbersome - need some means to propagate rights form a parent folder to a sub folder. Audit system is very good but Distribution system could be improved - difficult to get the distributions like we would have on a traditional architects transmittal register where we can cross reference documents by date it was distributed. Can be done is reports but reporting system also needs improving.

Forms are good once setup but not intuitive for users unfamiliar with how they work.

Overall: Provides excellent document control among design team members and provides compliance with PAS1192-2:2013 level 2 BIM standards.

Pros: Saved searches are good could be improved by allowing users to set the content of the search too as a quick link, Adoddle view is intuitive but you have to stop looking at the document to perform any actions on it (all the right click on the search result actions would be handy), also would be really good to be able to write comments in the panel on the left with the document view open . Being able to see the document history is good but perhaps could be improved with filters (dont' always need to know when anyone has ever read the document)

Cons: Email notification summary isn't particularly useful, could perhaps be a grid with required/Overdue on one axis and action type on the other? If I have an action to review its much more important than 'For Information'

Pros: This is a great way to centralise and securely store all important documents and provides a platform to distribute within the company (and also externally if required) and being a cloud platform it enables the transfer of larger documents. It also means your hard drive doesn't get filled up with these larger documents and they can be accessed directly through the internet if you need access but perhaps no connection to the company network

Cons: I think the Classic view was easier to use than the new Adoddle view but it is still a very good tool. It is also not entirely user friendly.

Overall: Adoddle may not be as user friendly as the classic version was but it is still a very valuable document control tool

Pros: The systems is very much easy to use even if you are a first timer user, in just a few days or session you can easily understand the system and operate it on your own. Then, if you master the system you can creat your own system so your data can be easily access by other members in your organization that has access in your system.

Cons: There are some boundaries where in you must have access in order to explore more the system. Also add some tutorials features on some access so you'll know how some things works.

Overall: Smooth circulation of data files, perfect filing of documents and unlimited storages of your data files.

Can be a bit difficult to get into, but once you are familiar with the set up it is fine.

Pros: I think it does mostly what we expect of it once you know how to use it. The support has been good and quick when I have needed it on the odd occasion. The Adoddle home page is good to use once you know how it works.

Cons: It is not very intuitive to use. The file structure has always seemed odd to me although perhaps it was the Environment Agency who determined that. The files for a job are not all presented when you go into a job. You need to expand to 'all files'. That is not very straight forward on Adoddle.

Overall: Ability to manage the information on my projects effectively.

Pros: fantastic depository for files , well structured and easy to navigate

It's nice to have files kept in a central place; and even though you can easily get separate document management solutions for your business, having that central location be your project management system, just makes sense.

Issue Tracking

If issue tracking features are an important selling point for you, you should know that Adoddle allows users to resolve issues through multiple workflows. This means that hiccups in your new product development project can be handled differently than bugs in your latest IT implementation.

Cons: Gantt charts don't come to mind when you think of things you'd miss if you didn't have them. However, it's tough to see project management software like Adoddle that handles aspects of traditional project management, but leaves out this important tool.

Overall: collective organisation of large project teams is visible to all

Pros: As a cloud store for project information such as drawings, it allows a sensible folder structure and easy searching, the key benefit is the ability to view drawings/models using the built-in viewer without needing specialist software.

Cons: It's not intuitive, the project forms and workflows are clunky and hard to navigate. Too many notifications. I suspect this product can probably do more and be better than I have experienced, but that depends on the skills and experience of the administrators. I will be sticking with our in-house designed and customised sharepoint sites for future projects.

Overall: Not so many. The ability to view drawings within the browser rather than using specialist software is the only thing I've found to be a positive.

Pros: It's better than Asite Classic. The site is generally fast-loading.

Cons: Some parts of the site load very slowly (forms etc). It's unituitive; you never know quite which tab to look for something, so takes longer than it should to get used to the system. Workspaces are OK but there are key features missing (e.g. why can't I easily see which users have access to a file?). The BIM Common Data Environment is not bad, but feels hacked together (for example, when I add a new user to the workspace I have to manually distribute files to them; they can't just see what's already been sent to that role). PPMT is slow and hard to use. Adoddle still doesn't have the full suite of administration tools so I still need to delve into Asite Classic for certain tasks. Reviewing, marking up and commenting on documents is very tricky, and although the audit trail is there it's hard to unearth and to understand. Even though I've turned off notification emails I still get them occasionally. The incomplete/overdue actions counters never seem to work as they vary depending on which workspaces you've got in your filter, so they're useless for quickly getting to the things you need to do to clear all your actions.

Overall: It provides a workspace compliant with BS1192. Other than that, it's a pain to work with and manage.

Pros: fast. Convenient. Easy to use. The upload options are adequate and the options for configuring the system suit the business

Cons: RFI and tech subsection needs enhancement. Sharing/transmittal options needs more alternatives, eg if one member of the team views a document, then all member of the team (ie same company) have it as viewed. More attributes required in the RFI section and tech sub section. Options like to be able to stamp status of drawings or reply to RFI without need to start a discussion.

Pros: The ability to share comments and track drawing and design progress using an online platformis great. We regularly go back and forth within the design team to create and design the best overall solution for the client.

Cons: The file viewing applet can sometimes take time to load but works well with patience. Sometimes when downloading files the QR code that is automatically applied to downloaded PDFs obscures details and text.

Lots of notifications for irrelevant parts of the project when we do not need them. Difficult to find just the elements required. Time consuming to manage in a busy office. Difficult for a specialist like ourselves to use. OK for multinationals that can afford all the extra staff needed just to use and manage this software.

Setting up and making comments is another whole management process with this system.

Would we recomend it NO but all these systems involve a huge admin effort that takes away importent time from your paying work.

Overall: secure collaboration, single place for information holding

It has been really helpful using Asite in terms of communication

Pros: It is user friendly and it makes communication very easy between the client and its contractors. Also, it gives reminders about action to be done or overdue.

Cons: It is sometimes not that fast especially when you are trying to go back to the previous page you want. You may need to click the home button to go back.

Overall: Easy Communication

Asite is a parasite the work keeps coming in ...

Pros: Classic view is usable and meets most of the requirements for our projects. The mark up function is user friendly and can be helpful if a little rudimentary.

Cons: Abosolutely, can't stand ADoddle. I have been using Asite for ten years now and whilst classic wasn't as good as some of their competitors, Adoddle seems to be even worse. There seems to be an impression that the user always knows what they want. with adoddle you can't spot things you may have already skimmed over that you may want to re-visit. Despite selecting classic view, it still insists on opening in adoddle.... which part of I don't like it don't they understand??? Forcing us to use start with it wont improve this dog of an interface. It's like tinder setting you up on a blind date with Anne Widdicome, and despite being told she's not your type, they set you up again. The constant clashes between the software and others over which version of java to use means most of the time it doesn't even open drawings without phoning the help desk, who to be fair are helpful but inconsistent. As someone who uses conject, 4projects and others I can confirm it is one of the poorest.

Overall: Meets basic requirements

Overall happy, customer service is mostly very good and pleasant.

Pros: Document management is really good, ability to create our own forms is great. We do like the customization in having what we want o our forms.

Cons: When creating forms we are stuck using InfoPath 2013 which isnt great, we're still waiting for the HTML form builder to see how far we can go with it.

It is a good software to use & store all the data at 1 place. I like it and its easy to use.

Pros: User friendly. Lots of features with good scope for development and improvement. Good app integration.

Cons: Implementation is drawn out and confusing. At the consultation stage everything is simplified however when it actually comes to the crunch there isn't much done right and you then have to discover the issues yourself as and when they crop up - rather than things being done correctly as specified on the matrix.

Pros: Storage capabilities and amount of information you can upload and download from ASite. the old format is very easy to use, no problems for a beginner navigating around asite to find drawings and information

Cons: The new format doesn't seem to search the criteria properly. if the word is not found it will pull up all the drawings in the file and this takes some time to load up

Asite is a very 'clunky' system to use. Not intuitional set up, with too many features.

Pros: Good search engine and very well trained support desk.

Sadly I have no more positives to fill in 100 characters count

Cons: System frequently crashes. The highest critocal failure rate of all systems I worked with

Files and communications disappear from the register

No feature allowing tracing contractual responses to document submissions

Very complicated and not user friendly reporting tool

Too many hidden functions but not easy to find

Not being able to associate documents together - such as document and comments sheet

Large number of errors

Bulk upload fiddly

Problems with the control over auto numbering

No capacity to correct errors

Actions often confusing

Overall: In comparison to other systems I have used (Aconex, Encompass, 4Projects) Asite does not come up as reliable software, due to number of errors and outages occurring. 2 critical outages only this year.

My experience is very good with Asite. This is stress relief (mind cool) site.

Pros: Easy to use interface still trying to find my way around the system, but hopefully once it comes in fully will be able to implement into my daily tasks more.

Cons: As a QS used to using DWF as a way of viewing drawings so that we are able to measure, as opposed to PDF that we can only view

Overall: Hopefully will help to make my day more efficient

Pros: Asite Adoddle is great because the cloud-based project management helps to offer fixes for kinks in employee communication, management of documentation, cost/benefit analysis of potential projects, portfolio analysis, and supply chain tweaks and updates within a suite. Bottlenecks are increasingly limited and Adoddle is perfect as far as providing efficiency to various segments in construction contracting; home builders, heavy-highway, utility...all the way "up" to skyscraper projects.

Cons: The search function is in need of some tweaking. Adoddle could benefit in an update because it is reliant on the user influencing the actual end location, as opposed to a detailed search being performed. Though, Asite staff is helpful and available for contact if issues arise.

Overall: Dashboards are the name of the game for Adoddle. The helpful gauge system can assist employees in decisions regarding cost analysis as well as relevant project information and metadata. The integration of documentation with useful information on various projects is phenomenal.

Pros: ASITE has always been an excellent place for easy storage and retrieval of documents and drawings without trying to compete with other communication systems.

Cons: When I look at a list of drawings in Adoddle I don't immediately see dates when the files were uploaded. I like to scroll through and see what's new.

Asite is a friendly user application software. However, some features aren't yet available.

Pros: Easy to use. The system is self explanatory. You can markup the documents and directly send to the recipients for coordination.

Cons: In terms of bulk uploading, it takes too much time as the information still need to fill-up manually.

Overall: We can easily get the information anytime we need it without any hassle. Good for coordination.

Pros: It is intuitive compared to other document management platforms. Also looks relatively modern whereas other platforms have dated appearances given that they've been added to over a number of years.

Cons: The zoom slider bar on the PDF viewer isn't a good idea, a plus and minus would be far better. Also the PDF viewer is quite slow and laggy.

Pros: I love the automated e-mail notifications - it really helps save time in not having to constantly follow up manually via e-mail.

Cons: I wish the interface was a bit more user friendly. It seems very jumbled and intimidating. I would get rid of everything and only keep the most essential features/options.
