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.

I like the estimating & communications aspect of this software. This is a great communication tool from the office to the field, and the field to office and client!

The estimating program has also helped us to control our costs on projects, and we are seeing more profit with more volume now versus more volume with less profit.

OUr schedule is also a lot easier to stay on top of, and it has helped us to know where we are at with things with the awesome Gant chart scheduling program! I have a lot less stress now than what I did before we started using this program, as I was still doing all estimating and scheduling on paper. I have a lot less stress in my life this year!!

The photos should be a little easier to upload from the Ipad in the field.

Recommendations

I think you need to be comfortable with the program you choose....I like the way that UDA works with Quikbooks, it even has a similar layout to Quikbooks so its not hard to figure out how to navigate the program.

I like the simplicity of the software. The newest features that allow for creations of submittals is very helpful as well, I can manage multiple facets of a project through one system which is very convenient. The operations are very simple to understand and use. It has been very helpful with keeping records of ongoing work as well as the creation of punch list work. I like that subcontractors information can be centralized as to make notifying/distributing information much easier.

Likes Least

I have been unable to find project logs from previous projects, when i look for work logs created in the past months, the entry has been recorded but I cannot open or view the details of the log created for that day.

Recommendations

If you are looking for software program that is very easy to understand and use, look no further. UDA is great for managing all construction activities in and out of the field.

All of UDA's function's work very well. I use this mainly for scheduling and budget/change order tracking. The project logging function is great. The report's that UDA create are also very clean and save me a lot of time from creating. Not to mention, upper management likes the simplicity of them as well.

I have had some trouble uploading photos from an Ipad due to the software not recognizing each photo's individual name.

Recommendations

My only recommendation is to test the software before you buy it. During the testing phase we tested other companies and UDA stood above all others.

I like the scheduling the best. Breaking down the order everything happens is very important in planning a project. I will be using the punch list feature a great deal, I like how it is shared and other people can cross off items from the list.

Likes Least

It is a bit clunky. What I mean by that is difficult to navigate, specifically the scheduling. When I click on Projects & Files and choose the project I want to work on, I would like to see a snapshot of the schedule right there, or at least a link to it. Instead I have to go back to the bar on the left side and click scheduling. I may be missing something here.

Also, when I am typing in dates, percent completed, and predecessors I wish I could use tab and enter or the arrow keys to move around the spreadsheet. I have to click on every single box that I need. Also when I try to resize the Gantt view vs the list view so I can see the predecessors and the Gantt, my mouse always disappears. It will still click but I am just kind of guessing.

Recommendations

I live and die by my schedule. If you could add notes to it that would be cool. You could give more details on what is remaining or if something was missed and needs to be revisited.

As a commercial contractor I would like to see documents more in line with Industry Standard Commercial Documents.
I Really don't have any issues with the Vendor, Always very Helpful.

Recommendations

DO your Homework, and if at all possible try to use the software for a while before purchasing.
I've been through 3 softwares prior to this and each one promised the world and never delivered.
UDA is at least Honest and does deliver what it claims to.
It's not perfect but right now nothing is.

It is a slow learning curve for field staff but that may also have to do with their lack of tech knowledge.

Construction online has allowed our project mangers direct control over scheduling which has had a huge and positive impact on the production department. Change orders are sent and received at a click of a button and the job log feature keeps my finger on the pulse of every project.

Likes Least

I do not like that the construction online is separate from construction suite and that transfer of information is not automatic. This often has created difficulties in ensuring most recent and relative information is available to the office staff. Our field staff also have had difficulties with the UDA online apps, they seem to seize from time to time.

Recommendations

I recommend the software in conjunction with Construction Suite. There is huge upside to the program as a whole but do be prepared to learn the program piece by piece. There are many functions which all add value to your company but take time to implement.

Glitches that cause information loss, however with a phone call we usually recover it.

Recommendations

Make sure that the accounting is appropriate for the work that you are doing. Without the appropriate feedback on profit and loss versus original estimate software can be useless.
