No software program works completely as you wish it did! This company though, works to achieve that. They listen to their Customers and work with them to make them better than they are. Their customer service is beyond expectations; sometimes beyond belief.

Advice to Others

Buy it! But don't kid yourself--a company-wide software product takes a time to implement. You need to allow the proper transition time or you will be frustrated.

I have been using UDA since we started up in 2009. I have recommended it to others several times. I have all my data stored on it since the beginning and often go back and look up estimates and schedules from the past. I have hired new staff and they have found it easy to learn and work with.

Pros

Ease of use and the power of organization. Success comes from being able to meet the expectations of the clients. This program helps you keep track of the details.

Cons

I have lost data with the hardware issue. It would be nice if it saved on its own so we would not have to remember to save often.

Advice to Others

Use the free trial. Attend the webinars.

I've been a long time user and I am often approached to look at other programs. No one comes close the functionality and the professionalism of the staff at UDA.

Pros

I love everything about the program. It goes deep and is incredibly versatile.

Cons

No program is perfect. When glitches arrive and they occasionally do the staff at UDA are on top of it.

Advice to Others

Do your homework and decide for yourself and know in the end you'll have made the right choice selecting UDA for your construction company needs.

We use the software primarily to generate bids. For this, I find the software to be useful. There seems to be a lot of extra bells and whistles to wade through. I'm an old school contractor and look to simplicity in my business and tend to rely on paper and pencil more than computers and tablets.

If you're looking for an all-inclusive package to manage construction sites contracts and personnel this software will do it all.

Pros

Included in the package that I chose it had all of the necessary legal documentation and RS Means a great tool for estimating!

Cons

It is a bit overwhelming to get started. This program does so many things including linking with quick books which are great but trying to figure out the functions and how they work together is a bit of a learning curve. Also, they seem to still be working on the cell phone apps (getting better but still a little glitchy.

Advice to Others

Use the technical support often. It's a great staff they have, that will do whatever it takes to make you successful with their product.

Now that we've used Construction Suite for about six months, I wanted to share our experience and explain why I consider it a five star program. We are a small remodeling and cabinet company that specializes in highly individualized projects, with almost all of our design work done in-house. We originally set out to find a replacement for our Excel estimating spreadsheet and to move our scheduling off of a wall calendar. What we've wound up with is an entirely new way of running the business side of things, with all of our contracts and documents, customer management, and job costing being done through Construction Suite now as well as estimating and scheduling. As the owner, I was not expecting to change how I tracked customers (Zoho CRM) or handled job costing (Quickbooks Contractor) but I couldn't be happier now with handling all that information in one place. It has been an easy transition out of our old systems and into Construction Suite by taking things one process at a time; for example we moved estimating over, then contracts and scheduling, etc. and we're now about 90% transitioned.

In the other programs we evaluated, I found they seemed to be geared towards general contractors that rely heavily on subcontractors, leaving the estimating side of things with no more utility than our old spreadsheets. Construction Suite's estimating allows us to break down costs into as much or as little detail as we need, and communicate with Quickbooks to track actual cost vs. estimated costs at whatever level of detail we need. For example, we may enter flooring for a project as one item ( a subcontractor's quote) and in the same estimate break down costs for a kitchen island down to each hinge and drawer guide, all in the same estimate. This has been a game changer for us and has cut estimating time down by at least half. Most of all, I can compare each line in the estimate to the actual cost imported from Quickbooks, and know down to the line item if we've made or lost money. If you've tried job costing in Quickbooks, I've felt your pain and I'm here to say there's a better way.

There are many more positive things I could elaborate on but I don't want to turn this into a novel, so here's the gist of it:

Programs like this can be intimidating, but Construction Suite can be approached as a collection of smaller programs with tiny learning curves. You can treat it as a contacts list to start, then master the calendar, and so on. This worked well for me.

Call them. Buy TotalCare and you'll get your money's worth in advice from people who know their stuff. Overall this has been the best single feature of Construction Suite.

Good luck with your search,

Mike Jungers, Owner

Pros

Depth. For almost every phone call to tech support, there has been a feature already in the program that does what I need. Not that it's a hard program to learn, I've just found it's faster and much more pleasant to call them and let them teach me. Top notch customer service!

A bunch more pros, but a small one that I really enjoy is it's pleasant to look at. Well done design team.

Cons

I have had a few cons, such as using assemblies in an estimate, but the version 8 update has addressed literally every small complaint I've had.

Advice to Others

Call UDA and let them give you a demo. If you do buy it, don't get intimidated, just move your contacts over and in the process you'll find how intuitive everything is and go from there.

I called in to speak with someone about product support for a program recently purchased from UDA (Construction Suite). Ben Willis from UDA answered the phone and assisted me with every question...which were many. Ben was extremely knowledgeable, very curious and a true gentleman with professional skills exceeding my expectations. His level of knowledge with this product was beyond and above my expectations. Great job Ben!!

Pros

Skills from Ben Willis-He will be my go to for all questions. Truly a professional.

Cons

Advice to Others

Buy the product, it truly has increased my bottom line. This estimating tool is way above any expectations I had for an estimating program. This is truth. You never know if your leaving money on the table until someone or a product like Construction Suite, shows you that you are. Hands down this is not only paying for itself, it is paying for itself 10 fold.
