Pros: It is very easy to upload, manage and send files to clients and subcontractors. It is also awesome that it OCR's plans and specs for you!!

Cons: It doesn't do full on project management including invoicing, owner billing and wip reports. Would also like if you could create and manage schedules.

Overall: ease and time saving with document control.

It's very easy to use.

Pros: We are transitioning from paper to digital. Love that is saves paper, printing time, mailing time, etc.

Cons: Some of our contractors have had trouble getting into the link and call us. We have forwarded them to your IT dept. It's probably user error!

Overall: Major time saving

I honestly can not complain about the software. It's the first project that I had to use it on.

Pros: It definitely is a great complement to hardcopy plans. The hyperlink aspect within the sheets are amazing. From the hyperlinks on the Table of Contents to the detailed hyperlinks within the individual sheets along with the hyperlinks to the growing 700+ RFIs on this project.

Cons: There has been bugs we've been dealing with, however your customer service have been great to work with and have been communicating with me on a timely/immediate basis.

In additional, not having the power to package drawings (PDF set, sheets 1 to 300 +) on our own. When we download drawings, you only have the power to download individual sheets. When you download the whole set, they are not in order.

Skysite's desktop web access is a very efficient way to manage the plans for our projects.

Pros: The ability to add plan changes, both current and "mid-stream" has been a favorite feature of this site. Ordering prints direct from the file or folders has also been very efficient.

Cons: Currently the desktop sync sorts the files alphanumerically and not by ordinal numbers, so generating a multipage pdf of the most current set takes additional page sorting efforts.

Overall: Cloud access and storage along with the project plan history is very useful

Pros: The ease of uploading large files and being able to set up the filing system the same way that we have it set up in house means that all of our employees already understand how the skysite filing system works. I also really like being able to keep track of who has ordered what, and who has downloaded what. The auto-hyperlinking feature is also very neat, but still needs some work in regards to reading sheet names correctly.

Cons: The software struggles reading our sheet names which means that we have to re-type the sheet names every time we upload a set of drawings. Specifically, the software cannot distinguish the letter "I" and instead reads it as a "1". Our sheets are all labeled TI-X.X but the software reads them as T1-X.X and always assigns the discipline as "telecommunications" when it should by Tenant Improvement or Architectural. The software is pretty consistent when reading our engineering sheets and usually gets those correct, both sheet names and discipline.

Pros: Downloading files is easy and quick. I like being able to save downloaded files to staff's email or other internal folders. All fields feature allow me to search by various fields. I find the software user-friendly, manageable and I enjoy using it.

It takes a while to get used to the features. Not as easy as I envisioned it to be.

Pros: It is organized into facilities and sets within a facility. There are other ways to group files and or folders. Files are downloadable. It has a lot of features that are usable. I like the zoom and pan features.

Cons: Features are not as easy to use, and perhaps need some definitions/explanations. At times it's difficult to look for the files I need. Not as complete as I imagined. The folders are fused at the beginning of a facility, which is ok, but it should have been explained or defined better. Need to download faster and/or should be able to group files.

Overall: I was able to view and obtain the files or drawings that I need.
It help me manage my projects when I have archived files that I can use.

Pros: Sharing the construction drawings with others is easy and efficient. It is easy to upload and download drawings using the skysite drive tool.

Cons: Costs our prime subcontractors and architects money for unlimited access. The search function is basically useless. There are glitches with the tool that auto detects callouts on the drawings.

Pros: I like the ability to index Plans by page and easily have the latest set at any point in time with an option to print the narrative at any time. I also like the open software and ability to integrate with BlueBeam.

Cons: I don't like the effort and time it takes to upload a document. Once uploaded, it can't be moved and is very cumbersome if you make a mistake.
When dealing with plans over 500 pages, the system bogs down and hard to send links easily.
I've encountered many problems where the system will not send links with the correct time frame requested or linked information.
When sending links, I wish I could type in a date instead of scrolling through calendar OR have a "never expire" link option.

I don't like the default only see 50 pages at a time and I can't scroll through a document without the screen needing to regenerate, which takes more time.
I dislike the effort it takes to switch projects views, that I can't have the option to permanently pin the folder tree to my toolbar.
I dislike the search or filter feature that it doesn't retrieve documents efficiently or sort them by relevance and hard for users to search.
Since it doesn't operate like windows, many of our users have a difficult time using it.

Overall: I can effectively manage many projects and large construction plans myself without relying or waiting on someone else

Pros: Ease of use. Most all subcontractors can easily navigate the software. I like the ability to set alerts for individual files.

Cons: The submittal files could use some additional ways to monitor the activity of the submittal. Make the availability to check out a submittal, stamp it and check it back in, somehow indicating that it has been reviewed by the appropriate person.

Overall: Easy file sharing. Communications made easy.

Pros: It's fairly easy to use and has ample storage for our projects. Set up of a project is straight forward. Nix-Fowler Constructors has four users in the office.

Pros: This software is good for keeping all of your data in one place. It also give the user or company a place to have data located with out taking room or space on your own computers.

Pros: I like the ability to be sift through different projects from the one tab at the top quickly and easily.

Cons: No Bluebeam PDF viewer is available in the preview option. Therefore we have to download plans to bluebeam, edit them and reupload. this takes too long.

Pros: Like having all of our information at our fingertips. It's easy to find, view and share individual sheets.

Cons: When things were scanned in, they were filed strangely and can be tedious to get to. Also when a file is downloaded, it is placed in a series of folders instead of just the plain file.

Pros: We used this database as part of an overall large scanning project so we could recycle all the paper

Cons: I wish the office could have access without changing anything vs me finding files for them. It is not a big deal but would be nice if they could have read only/email access.

Pros: The ability to link documents together. The ability to reference drawings, specs, and sketches anywhere on a tablet or phone. When you leave a message for a support agent, someone typically gets back to you quickly and the customer service people are friendly and helpful. They seem receptive to constructive feedback.

Cons: The uploading and indexing process is extremely tedious. Once you accept the hyperlinks to documents that Skysite finds, you cannot edit the links individually. If you upload documents to a folder that connects to "latest documents" you cannot remove it from "latest documents" without deleting the whole folder and re-uploading it. Making hyperlinks maunally is also tedious. You cannot copy and paste a hyperlink shape or destination. It is time-consuming and annoying to link documents together.

Comments: I have used a number of competitor construction project management softwares to manage documents. However, they were lacking in some features or the other. A colleague suggested about SKYSITE and now I am completely dependent on the software. This software┬┐s is exclusively designed or AEC/O professionals with advanced features like auto-sync, auto-hyperlink, submittal and powerful search helped me efficiently manage construction documents, share and review the same.

Pros: This software is cost effective and extremely user-friendly. It is also easy to maneuver through the various features. I can also work on the go and assign tasks to my team.

Cons: Nothing that I can list the moment. Would like to see some more features in future updates.

Pros: SKYSITE has a very simple & user friendly interface which made it easy for us to use. What we particularly liked was that it helped us to upload and download all documents with an excellent speed. We could zoom into construction blueprints & docs which has good clarity. What appealed to us the most is that we worked from the jobsite and all team members were on the same page. Looking for specific information was also quick and painless. Our account was quickly opened by the vendor and a monthly billing process was set up seamlessly. Overall good show

Pros: Easy to use and it has many features that we can use in our company . The document management and the ability to upload and save different file types are great. We received training very promptly from the local Skysite customer service staff. They cam eback again and trained more staff in office .

Cons: Nothing to complain at this time. Vendor was quick in opening an account for us . they set up a monthly billing process and did not ask for a credit card .

Recommendations to other buyers: Their prices are great. Unlimited data storage. We moved away from Plangrid. It was a rip off . When you share a project with the subs , the fee is so affordable.
