Pros: It brings all parts of the business together in one place. We can immediately see what we will make form each project and manage expenses as the project progresses, we can then review each project once completed and get all cost and profit information easily. The customer support has been amazing the team has traveled to meet wiht us and they are always available to us either on the phone or email.

Cons: Like any new software system it takes a while to learn and change what you are doing this system is no different especially with so many moving parts.
The time tracking of employees is a little clunky and the ability to report and follow up on tenders is taking a while to learn. To the teams credit at Orbis they are happy to change add and grow the system whey they see a good idea or a better way to do what they have been doing, they have done this several times for us.

Hi Tristan, Thank you for your feedback. Now that Xero Payroll is integrated with the system, this process should be easier for you and the team moving forward. We've also recently added new features to time tracking such as QR code scanners. If we can provide additional training or support in these areas please let us know at support@nexvia.com.au.

Pros: For the administration team, the processing of both supplier and third party invoices is easy and being able to link the documents to the project has made searching much easier.

Cons: Administratively, there are some common errors made by the Administration Team but we are unable to fix them ourselves, we have to contact the Nexvia team to undo the error. We believe they are working on giving us access to be able to undo these errors ourselves.

Pros: The thing i like most about the software is the easy with which a quote can be produced due to the drag and drop functionality of the items and fixtures. This feature only saved time from the very beginning

Cons: The thing that i liked least was the integration between the mobile app and the portal which was a two way sync but that is now being changed so not really an issue anymore

Overall: Time saving and also the ability to see where a project budget has got it right and where we have got it wrong

Pros: I like that things cannot be deleted and there is an easily accessible log to see where something might have failed. The overall system is easy to navigate and use.

Cons: Some of the features still need tweaking as there are occasional glitches. It is a hassle to make sure that all bills are approved, as this does not work within our team environment but all issues are small issues.

Overall: Progress is easily to track

Pros: The software is easy to use with only basic training, having full access to every team members workings whilst being anywhere in the world is a huge advantage. Live budget tracking allows us to proactively work on efficiencies in real time.

Cons: Not being able to drag files from emails direct into documentation adds some time needing to move this file to a documents folder, not being able to dump multiple files into documentation creates a similar very small issue overall.

Overall: The capability to manage a much larger volume whilst having live access to accounts, PO's scheduling & documents uploaded by any team member.

Pros: Log on anywhere online and manage your projects.
No need for large data Storage.

Cons: You have to get your contractors to buy into using the system. It can take a little persuasion but once they are on board you can use to its full potential!

Overall: Orbis allows you to move through the monotony of administrative tasks at a breeze. Creating a tender is a simple data entry task. A scope of works is generated and automatically generated templates mean easy and simple tender submission document preparation.

This is seamlessly shifted to a project staging area, following a reassuring, easy point and click approval process. From the project management area you can check and agree negotiated budgets that have come from tender, raise your purchase orders with ease, attach quotations received to each tender budget allowance and track live job costs. There are other management features including a platform to produce a program of works, a document control center where you can upload all project related documents, as well as automatically generating a drawing register as you upload plans. Variations and Request for information can be generated online and issued to your clients or contractors as simply as ordering a fast food take away from your tablet.

Site records can be directly inputted, from site register, health and safety audits, photos and videos of site progress and site induction register records. Arm your site foreman with a smart phone and you can get these uploaded daily and on file, accessible anywhere so long as you have a Wifi connection or some data to log on to Orbis.

You can also give your client access (at your discretion) to the contract program, variations, RFIs and there is a tool to enable you to produce client reports. This gives your client the satisfaction of being able to login and monitor the progress of his project.

You can track and sign off defects using simple data entry techniques. Again, because its online, those contractors responsible for attending to defects have access to photos and reports that you can easily upload.

You can genuinely manage a project from inquiry to sign off of defects from this one online platform. It streamlines the administrative day to day tasks of project management into an easy to use web browser format.

It also essential to highlight that the customer support staff are friendly and proactive. Even willing to incorporate/modify features up on request.

Orbis is definitely worth the investment of time and money to incorporate into your operations. It will save time and effort in the long run and help to keep you in control.

Recommendations to other buyers: Easy to learn.
