Pros: Specifically designed and run for Technical Documentation associated with Document Control/Configuration Management processes.

Assai uniquely blends process with the technology, no need for customisation to vanilla enterprise solutions. The integrations allow documentation to be managed dynamically without altering the underlying Enetprise system. This halfed the effort we were spending on maintaining two systems overnight.

When compared to Enterprise Vendors the support offering is on a different level, the CEO visits your site regularly. In my experience none of the competition come close to providing the same opportunity to build a relationship with and influence those people who control the evolution of the critical systems which we utilise daily.

Documentation supporting Assai is extensive and very well detailed to cover every aspect of their offering, including otherwise tricky deliverables like UAT. The content is clear and can be understood by all levels, it saves a huge amount of support time and internal effort during Projects.

To sum it up, I found Assai to be an off the shelf Document Control tool where the processes are already part of the system itself. The system is reliable, support always reactive and of course effective.

Cons: The old AssaiADMIN interface, but this has been completely rewritten and designed in the present generation. It's actually an example of Assai listening to their customers and thereafter rebuilding a better interface, which saved money on Oracle Forms licences. We as customers paid nothing other than our support and maintenance, but instead saved on licences as well as benefitting from a simpler interface.

Overall: We primarily moved the Document Control work outside of our perimeter.

Reduced our manpower by 80% and doubled throughput in terms of deliverables.

Assai gave us the opportunity to unify our systems through their connecter, saving time maintaining two systems and removing the inherent risk of data mismatches.

We moved from a manual distribution of deliverables for comment to semi-automated and finally onto automated, this was all enabled and managed by the Assai product enabling a step change in the way we handle documentation pertaining to our Assets.

Pros: Fit for purpose out-of-the-box. Highly configurable and automated. Designed around the business process. Intuitive, fast and easy to use. Comprehensive functionality to support Documemt Control & Management, BIM, Contract Admin/Supply chain compliance though full project lifecycle and throughout Operations.

Overall: I have succesfully deployed Assai on multi-billion£ programmes such as Highspeed 1 (CTRL), Dublin Airport Expansion and the London 2012 Olympic Park construction. Assai is unique because it was designed from the inside out around proven best practice business processes. It is highly user configurable. The reporting suite is comprehensive and powerful. Assai can interface with Primavera P6 to roll up accurate progress to the plan. Assai is better eqipped for BIM than any of the many pretenders on the market; the Asset and Data Management suite is second to none. It is also scaleable from the smallest project to the largest programmes. There were around 2 million records throughput on 2012 and CTRL and even greater volumes on the ongoing Shell Sakhalin Island projects. Contract Admin & Legal love Assai for its ability to monitor and report on supply chain compliance and for the forensic data analysis and processing capabilities for launching and defending claims, adjudications and litigations. From my own experience Assai will pay for itself very quickly particularly when used to support 'proper' Document Control principles designed to assure reduction in revisions, design clashes and resultant re-work. Assai can be securely hosted in the cloud or installed on your own network or data centre. It is very fast to implement and very light maintenence. Engineers/Reviewers can be trained quickly as it is intuitive and designed around the typical engineering project review/commenting scenarios. It's very flexible and users can both redline and/or text comment. Assai's rich functionality is unparalled, it's faster than anything else, it's more configurable and more automated. In my 30+ years working in multiple engineering sectors i have yet to see any solution that compares or delivers to the world class standard of Assai.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you need convincing I would suggest asking for a free trial and test the system against your current solution(s). Run KPI's against your standard processes and compare the speed and efficiency . Look to at the power of the reporting which should be the major deliverable of a good Document Control function.
