Pros: Superseding of documents as new ones are issued is a very useful feature, communication between different teams being all in one place reduces a lot of confusion, having all project documents accessible from a single source is extremely useful throughout the project as a PM>

Cons: Not very intuitive to use, requires extensive training sessions to be able to use it proficiently, document control heavily reliant on all contributors following the naming convention.

Pros: easy of finding information for any document or workflow I look for, zip download is easy too to download all files together.

Cons: - The relation between documents and workflows is not practical, you should copy the link or text from documents and go to workflows to find information, there should be a way to do that automatically.
- If I'm not in the workflow and want to download documents, there is no way except going to the original mail.

We only use it as a subcontractor.

Pros: Very easy to track conversations and contract instructions. The search function is easy to use and brings up all relevant info. The document register is very easy to use as well.

Cons: The software itself is good. I do find that main contractors tent to send out contract instructions to all subbies even when it doesn't affect some.

Pros: Aconex is used by all entities involved for our project. This make document control management efficient and productive.

The best thing about Aconex is the document register : unlimited size of files, easy access to previous version of a file, link to all transmittal used to exchange the file and, the search is powerful. Easy and fast to update files for all document register that have already received a file.

Cons: Having to ask for a report of our distribution list, we should have this accessibility. The Insights should be editable by the project Management to represent what we should see.

Overall: Reduce document controller, reducing email communication with large files as well. Centralization for all document control management.

My experience in the document control field for oil and gas spans 12+ years.

Pros: What I like most about this software is how easy it is to use. I also like the quality standards it offers with recording every change that is made within the system. The dashboard has all the relevant information needed to make your daily tasks easy to manage. I also enjoy having the ability to process documentation en masse with the bulk upload function. The drag and drop feature for uploading multiple files is also appealing. Utilizing this software for our document control functions and repository has been the best experience in all my document management software experience.

Cons: I would like for org admins to have the capability to add their own projects into the software module. While I understand that to have the ease of use features on this software, it may be required for Aconex to create the projects in the module, it would be nice if org admins had that ability. But it has not been a real hindrance, since the projects were created fairly quickly once the request was made.

Pros: Document management is a key aspect for the efficiency and productivity of organizations and ACONEX has been fundamental for the magnitude of the project in which I currently work.
Aconex fully complies with internal needs and also allows the organization to be up-to-date with ISO 30300 and the best practices in the documentary field.
Documentary management how "the strategies, tools and methods used to capture, organize, store, preserve and disseminate content and documents related to organizational processes, is much easier to achieve with the vital support generated by having Aconex with this tool .

Cons: It is difficult for me to trace - match the documents to each other for topics.
While there is a chance to download spredsheets, the is quite limit the report, could be better considering something like dashboard or something similar for all the categories of the documents.

Overall: The best practices in the documentary field for my daily job.

Pros: As i am frequent user on Aconex. helping me much easiest way to handle the document how i required.
Document search and bulk upload option is much easier to handle

Cons: There is still more clarification or home work required on report taking.
For example in supplier module, if we required to get a report of Document received date and document return back from supplier/Subcontractor/Designer in one step it is not possible - here we get the result only if we search the document with history. - for one document this option is ok but we need to search large number of document it will take a lot of time to get the actual report

Overall: As i am working in a field of Document management . This software will help me a lot in my future job profile.

Pros: This is a Web Based application that can be accessed via any internet connect as well as mobile access. Reports can be set up for individual use or organization use for all users. They are trying to update features in workflows to be closer to Bluebeam. My direct Support contact is very responsive and always willing to help.

Cons: There are several cons, you do not have the ability to do bulk changes to date field and clear the date completely. Workflows does not allow multiple comments per sheets, it bulks them all together as one comment. The comments need to be tracked/closed individually and when its all bulked together that is not possible. There are certain fields that are listed Print Size why can't this be turned off? Mail does not currently have workflows. Mail is hard to run reports, you need to do it from Inbox and sent to get all necessary information. Workflow Comments is only available to vie in workflow, this should be visible in the document registry. Markup tool is not user friendly.

Cons: To be honest, I would like the Document Register screen to mimic the upload screen where the label fields are in sync with each other.

Pros: The workflow submission is very practical and suitable for project engineering. It reduce paper usage and helps to monitor the progress. The uploads and downloads file is unlimited which is very good for drawing submission in CAD format. It is also summarized the submission status because every submission is reviewed by many trades. Good job Aconex.

Cons: During workflow submission process, there is a bug which appear unidentified codes. It required to refresh page but it will return to the beginning and we have to start all over again. Aconex should fix these issues.

Overall: It helps to reduce times and make works easier.

Pros: Aconex ensures ease of navigation about the site, with superior document control. The ability to upload a model to the bim section of aconex is also helpful.

Cons: Aconex needs to update the app to ensure it is more user friendly. Organisations should also be able to add pictures to their signatures as a standard thing. This should then be able to be seen in an email client.

Pros: I think the best thing about Aconex is the document registry. All drawings in one place and you can see previous versions of the same drawing and how it has progressed. Also being able to see emails on a specific subject and tracking RFIs is a very good option.

Cons: The automatic numbering system of documents is not very useful. I wonder if this option can be changed from within the system. In my company we have a very specific way of naming files so it's not very useful to have automatic naming.

Pros: Workflows are easy to navigate. Document library is easy to search and update. It is also very helpful to have an easy to access document history.

Cons: It is very expensive which excludes it from many projects of smaller scale which could benefit from the software.

Overall: It allows me to keep track of project documents easily. It facilitates document review processes without having to download and reissue documents to multiple teams. It allows me to distribute project documents without having to use multiple systems to reach multiple organizations. It clearly defines personal responsibilities per workflow.

Pros: Combination of emails & Document Register

I like the multitude of options it provides at a faster speed than most document control software available

Cons: Less options with searching drawings & documents

Keyboard short cuts; if the keyboard short cuts are enabled in this software, it will be benefited by document controllers a lot. Required additional search query options to search documents.

Using Aconex is easy provided a user training is given. It has many awesome features.

Pros: The fact that it gives you the opportunity to share vital documents with not only persons from your organisation but also persons from other organisation and thereby fostering collaboration and joint ventures

Cons: Having had problems trying to log in before, I will put it down to ease of access. After the problem, I try contacting our administrator to solve the problem but he could not find what the issue was and told me everything was fine with my details and I shouldn't be having any problems.

Pros: We can access anywhere. We can show traceability on the history of each document. We can conveniently create transmittal to transmi the document. The workflow is functional and worl well in the project.

Cons: Like the other software it is also has its downtime, sometimes it is slow, sometime some functionality is not working especially when doing the bulk upload.

Overall: Aconex is one of the useful tool in document control. If used with full efficiency, we can trace the history of not just the document but the project itself. It already has the workflow and its own transmittal

Pros: Aconex is so intuitive that most people do not need formal training prior to using the application. Support Central is very helpful for those who need to use it extensively. From a Document Control perspective, the best feature is the ability to upload and send hundreds of files in a matter of minutes.

Cons: The main improvement I would like to see is that both a native file and pdf can be kept in the one record as opposed to requiring 2 separate records.

Pros: The document managenent feature is excellent with the ability to superseed documents and control access to documents. This extends to the document library which is great for finding project documents from other disciplines (provided they have been transmitted).

Cons: File download is a little clunky - it would be better if there was a desktop app for users that could choose to sync with specified documents or document types so that it was easy to keep up to date. Also it would be good if there was an outlook plugin that enabled Aconex mail to be sent / recieived and replied from within Outlook.

Pros: A lot of simple organizations and as such is easy to use. For example: a basic screen in the form of a table with all the necessary data.

Cons: There is no table listing all design reviews. For instance: the rows would be entered in the codes - the names of all the designs and the column numbers of the revisions. The dates of the revisions would be entered in the fields of their cross-section. Nevertheless, whether the table will be updated automatically (based on the code and the data of the document itself) or the document controller on the project will do so. This would easily and quickly find the required revision of a document that has huge number on large projects.
Second: notes when my tasks are approaching should be on INBOX screen in the form of a light signal - a bright-colored button, because the inbox screen is open for most of the time.

Pros: Ease of use. One can access mails easily, can review drawings, mails and attachments in chronological order without any problems.

Cons: The one problem that is irritating is to log on every time one has to read any mail. To search for the e mail ID's of persons in the loop also takes a lot of time.

Overall: No Comments

Pros: "My task" listing lets me see at a glance what I need to do especially those that are in a workflow.

Cons: There are some very old tasks that cannot be closed especially when some addressees have left the project.

1- Better management of documents in workflow review [ especially superseding marked up documents]
2- No way to retract message once sent our even if in error.

All data and information always there whenever we need them.

Overall: Saving lots of time.

Software works well, however loading issues occur frequently

Pros: Ability to track and locate correspondence is probably the most useful aspect of Aconex, storage of documents is reasonably straightforward.

Cons: Reports cannot be tailored to suit my requirements as they cannot be specific enough. One problem is the RFI trails, once someone has responded there is a danger then as this becomes no longer overdue or outstanding. This is most critical if the response is an automated one. There needs to be a method to reverse it.

Overall: Collation and capture of specific information is far easier than ordinary email systems.

Generally a really great experience.

Pros: Ultimately the job it performs. It is a great way to track correspondence and documents. Mostly it is a good user interface with straight forward logical steps.

Cons: Some things are not so straight forward or clear, particularly with document superseding and some more "helpful tips" at each step would be good.

Overall: Quick and easy uploading, tracking and communicating documents and correspondence with team members.

Aconex is a great collaboration tool for workflow, document and correspondence management.

Pros: Users have the ability to create a project from the tender phase through the the completion of the project. There is the ability to create tenders, coordinate correspondence, share and store documentation, and defect management.

Cons: Difficult in getting subcontractors to sign up for a user account. There are also issues for project administrators having the ability to remove temporary / users no longer involved in the project. The mobile app is difficult to use.

Overall: - Use from start to finish on the project
- Control of tendering module
- Clear document review process under the workflow module
- Mail correspondence can be controlled under mail types
- Continual document register automatically updated on document transmittal

Pros: I like the interface. It's clean and easy to maneuver. The sheer amount of options available are staggering, in a good way. Revision history, super search, etc.

Cons: Many, many bugs. Can't attach document when a mail is opened in a new tab. Can't go back in certain places. Certain words used are unfamiliar outside of the system's software . Can't find documents containing words in Search (must be the beginning of the document's name)

Overall: Ease of use; online accessibility, capturing version history and tons of megadata, variety of document types

The overall use is great for a building site and organising documentation and correspondence.

Pros: Documentation and correspondence control.
Able to track old correspondence by topic.
Able to see who was issued what documentation and when.

Cons: Sometimes unstable to use and crashes.
It doesn't go back to the same spot if you go back a page.
If you have multiple pages open and you search say architectural in one and hydraulic in another. When you go back to the previously used one it changes to the former format. It doesn't stay on the one it was opened too.

Overall: Being organised
