After working from home this weekend, creating a template schedule for our field staff, I wasn't sure how to upload this new information into Construction Suite. My rep knew just were to go to take care of my question and needs. Thank you for having the knowledge to get me up and running quickly!

Pros

Ease of use... It works almost exactly like MS Project.

Cons

Still learning the little in's and outs of the system.

If you are looking for an all in-composing CRM... Look no further.

I love using UDA both the online and desktop versions! They have streamlined our estimating and scheduling as well as increased our accuracy, communication, and the overall job flow.

Pros

so many features, great customer support (and a real person answering the phone when you call!), allows for continuity within the company and increased communication.

Cons

So many features it can get overwhelming figuring out all the details and how to best use each feature.

Advice to Others

Get UDA, it will change your world!

As a general contractor this program provides me with two ways to input data from sub contractors. The lump sum price, or a break down of the materials which I seldom use because subcontractor costs to my clients do not need that. I can schedule projects, break them up into my building types, and file ones that were decline to make finding current jobs easier. Tecch support is easy to use and they always take care of my problems.
As a general contractor , I would recommend this program to all contractors, especially general contractors

UDA was new to me when I came on board with this new company as director of construction I've used many other applications over the years but I found UDA to have a very friendly dashboard interface.
When building a schedule I like that I can bring in any other format and work with it and export back to someone in that same format.

The options are unlimited for setting up my schedule and adding new task predecessors Milestone or whatever I need simply at one click.
When building an estimate I like that it has pre-formatted estimate and all the CSI divisions as well as offering me a blank and residential and Commercial

Pros

I love the price compared to procore and others it's a phenomenal value. Thereon wine sweet application is phenomenal for connecting your field supervision with your subcontractor Base, building submittals, RFI's, posting plans excetera

Cons

To get the full value which doesn't limit you you need to buy construction suite online that gives you the ability to integrate your field supervision with your work

Advice to Others

Dollar for dollar and the support that's offered this is the best construction management estimating scheduling software I have ever found

Used primarily as for its Estimating functions. Good that it links to Quickbooks, however the compatibility with Construction Online could still have improvements. Not all functions are available/compatible with Construction Online. Better integration and Online functionality would be appreciated.
Converting an Estimate to a Proposal document to share with client works well. Proposal documents can be customized and edited. Setup takes a bit of work and there are some shortcomings, however overall this function is very useful.

Construction Suite is an amazing software with endless possibilities!

Pros

The customer service for UDA Technologies is AMAZING! They're kind, helpful, and their response time is wonderful! Construction Suite is probably the best computer software I've come across in the 4 years I've been working in the Project Management industry. It includes everything you need in a job from beginning to end; scheduling, estimating, cost data, project management, ect. The fact that they have a YouTube channel dedicated to teaching you everything about the software is genius!

Cons

There really isn't anything I don't like about the software. It is a little complex and takes a lot of reviewing and practice to figure the program out completely, but I think that's only because the software offers so many different products in one software. I would have liked to have a longer trial period for the software. 10 days just isn't enough to decide if this is the software I want to pay a pretty penny for. It is a little expensive, so a longer period of time to try out the product would be productive and proactive for the company to offer. I think they could pull in more business if they extended a trial to 30 days.

Advice to Others

If you need a program that has it all in one, this is it, and quite frankly, the only one I've ever found to include estimating cost data AND project management rolled into one.

Advice to Others

UDA is constantly updating and adding new features. I believe you have to "keep up" with the changes or you will quickly fall behind.

We have been using Construction Suites for over 3 years and it gets better every few months with upgrades. As an Architectural firm with project management this fits our needs in many ways that reduce our workload and also keeps our information on projects in a central location.

Pros

The ability to track all projects within one program

Cons

limited controls on certain online features in the Punch list module

Advice to Others

Spend time with the free online download and make sure you understand how it works. It is easy! Once you buy it, it gets even better as you develop your own database.

Very powerful software.
Product specialists are knowledgeable. ONE ISSUE I HAVE. WHEN THE PRODUCT SPECIALIST ANSWERS THE PHONE THEY NEED TO TELL THE CUSTOMER THIS IS GENNY, HOW CAN I HELP YOU. WE AS CUSTOMERS WOULD LIKE TIO KNOW WHO WE ARE TALKING WITH.

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

The colors need to be more vibrant. For example the menu on the left side showing all the choices I.e. Estimating, projects, contacts etc is not sharp. It has more of a faded look.

It is good software

compatibility with Quickbooks eliminates double entry. Schedule and job tracking built in as well. No need for separate scheduling software. And best - they are SO responsive and quick to handle questions and issues.

I haven't found any issues yet and like the parts that I am involved in. The vendor has been great.

Recommendations

determine whether you want to spend time with double entry into your accounting software and whether the risk of errors out weighs the cost

I am new to the product Construction Suite, and have benefited from the online instructional videos. As I have started using the product and had more feature specific questions, I always received quick responses when I called for help. Today I had another great experience-I was having trouble logging in from the cloud. It was determined that I needed to add another user...but every time I tried to do that, I got stuck in an endless circle. I am OK using online chat to resolve issues...but our rep sensed that this was not the right time and suggested we speak over the phone. Once we got on the phone together, we were able to resolve the issue in less than a minute. As working people who communicate with texting, online messaging, emails, etc., I think it's important to remember that the phone is sometimes the best way to communicate and resolve a problem.

I don't have any specifics that I don't like, but you have to learn how to use the software to get all the benefits.

Recommendations

I chose to purchase the software for a trial period to be sure that I was comfortable with it. I think this is a valuable option if you are unsure of your needs or the performance of the software.
