UDA ConstructionOnline Software


 

UDA Technologies’ ConstructionOnline offers a web-based, integrated approach to project management, project scheduling, and customer management. Designed for emerging construction businesses in the homebuilding and remodeling industries, the system allows users to remain apprised of all project changes and updates.

The solution includes Gantt chart style schedules, where tasks can quickly be converted into groups. The project management module provides photo management features, includes document control and helps with budgeting and cost management. The customer management program provides customized buyer portals, contract management, and home configuration.

Punch list items are automatically updated and shared complete with documents and photographs through a fully-integrated mobile application, and nothing falls through the cracks with the To Dos interface. 

The client portals feature helps customers view project calendars, approve upgrades, make change orders, and even see files and photos of their project through a secure, password-protected online portal. Each client interface is branded with the buyer’s company logo and color scheme, and the company retains complete control over what each client sees.

ConstructionOnline is available in a web-based format and is accessible on Mac and Android mobile devices. The system works well for small to medium-sized businesses and up to 50 users. ConstructionOnline is best suited for commercial and residential design and build firms, custom homebuilders, real estate developers, and residential remodelers.

So far, so good. We have only been using it for about a month but the customer service and training was exceptional. We feel it is fairly customizable and fits almost all our needs.

Pros

Custom fit your needs.

There is a bit of lag on the scheduling portion as it updates.

I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I don't find the software to be that easy to use. I am glad that the customer support is good though and that really helps. Also, I don't have a reference with which to compare UDA to another program.

We purchased this product to help us estimate and manage our residential field activities. We looked at several products, test drove a few and Construction Suite was hands down the best for end to end estimating and performance measurement.
Not only is the product easy to use, but the sales, customer support and technical support staff are awesome. Everyone is knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful. Wait times to speak with a representative are minimal and no matter who answers the phone they either help you right away or get you to the right resource very quickly. No need to leave a message and have someone call you back.

Pros

Seamless integration between the office and staff in the field. With punch lists, it's easy to check on the daily progress of our crews to keep them on time and on budget. The absolute best QuickBooks integration. We have several products that interact with our QuickBooks accounting software but none works as seamlessly as Construction Suite.

Cons

We really struggle to find things that we don't like.

Advice to Others

Talk to the UDA Staff. They're honest and want to build true win win relationships. All my reps have all been fantastic.

The first recommendation was co-construct but at at price a month wasnt in my budget. I was looking for something to clean up my business. I currently use xactimate for estimating and import excel sheets into UDA and our clients love it. The selection tool saves a bunch of time and is so easy to track, the change orders are awesome and you dont miss small changes which im starting to see better percentages. However i wont recommend it to any compettitors in my area haha. Pays for itself and the scheduling is fantastic. I actually have real timelines for clients that we actually meet. Seriously its awesome.

Pros

Everything, schedule Change orders sketch overlay. Client selections

Cons

No time cards at the present time

Advice to Others

Buy it. Unless you live in London ontario,

My experience is for the most part a good one. It did take us a while to get comfortable with the product. Now that all the staff are using it, I can see how useful it truly is.

Pros

The schedule and mobile items

Cons

I understand that it's web based and this happens...but updating data changes seem to take awhile. Also when UDA makes changes we don't always know when or how to access things we once did.

Implementing UDA has made our team more effective and more efficient in every aspect of our projects.

Pros

Budgeting/Scheduling/Photo's/Reporting

Cons

The only thing I would like to see get fixed is to see an overall Report for every project, at a high level. Especially when it comes to scheduling. With respect to the Gantt Chart, if we can see everyone's projects on a timeline, we can see where we need to allocate more resources.

We gave this a try for a few months as we were in the process of figuring out best software for our business. We liked it's platform and useability, but weren't sold on the app like nature of the product. Still stuck in the world of CPU based software. That's to no fault of the program-- probably just our old-school habits.

Pros

Very aesthetically pleasing platform, comprehensive utilities, and good accessibility from everywhere through internet based program

Cons

Price was a bit painful, and the interface seemed like it was built for a very large market-- I'm looking for something a little more tailored to me and my context.

Advice to Others

Definitely give it a try in your search for software options. It didn't work for us, but might be a perfect fit for someone a little more hip of mind than us :)

We have had UDA in our office for a year and I am still finding new ways to simplify the sharing of information in our office.

Pros

Very user friendly. Icons easy to understand.

Cons

I have not even scrapped the surface of what this program can do.

Advice to Others

If someone is starting a fresh QuickBooks data base - it would be easier to sync contacts. If different people are imputing data in both UDA and QB at the same time it may get a little messy to combine an older QB database.

So far this product has helped my remolding company. It is a pretty complex software and is more than I need, but is a good fit to grow into. You really have to figure out what aspect is most important to your needs and just start with that. If you try and learn the whole software capabilities, one would be overwhelmed. I have had this software for 7 months now and use it everyday, and still just am hitting the basics.

Pros

customization.

Cons

complexity

Advice to Others

Be prepared to spend a lot of time learning how to use this software, if you want to gain all the attributes of it. You could easily spend an hour a night for 6 months, until you start to get a handle on it.

Perhaps the most efficient use of my time filling out inspection diaries and attaching field documents like certs and photos.

Pros

The speed of delivering field information to all the stakeholders is near to real time as one could desire.



Cons

Still working on the needed forms and being able to approve the diaries.

Advice to Others

For construction administration and the value of your service very beneficial.
