Onware is a construction software solution that can be deployed in the cloud or on-premise. Key features include modules for project management, design, bidding, contract administration and project close-out.
Onware’s primary feature is its project management module. It includes automatic alerts that notify users when they need to complete tasks associated with their projects. The system has a company directory, a person (or user) directory and a project list. It also includes a documentation feature, and users can submit and share documents and reports. Users can also track meetings and share meeting notes.
Onware’s design module includes an equipment list and a feature called the “Master Door Schedule,” which includes all aspects of construction phase doors, such as drawings, hardware sets, methods of operation and security.
Onware has a module for bidding and negotiation. Users can request clarification, request alternatives to the originally specified materials and submit letters of acceptance. Users can ensure quality by scheduling site visits in the system. Contractors can upload quotes for review.
Onware can also help users close projects. Documents that can be stored in Onware for close-out include: sub-consultant compliance verification certificates, certificates of substantial performance, certificates of total performance, certificates for construction completion, facilities take over and project warranty notices.
Onware can be licensed in perpetuity or priced per client per month. Its on-premise deployment is compatible across a variety of operating systems.
