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.

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.

That ConstructionSuite and ConstructionSuite Online are two separate programs.

Construction Online is capable of a wealth of functions, so take time to explore what it can do for your business.

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.

I use the project files and gallery all the time for various projects. I really like being able to print a report so I have a hard copy.

Pros

Being able to access this program from pretty much anywhere.

Cons

One thing I don't like is once something has been uploaded for example photos, they aren't easily downloaded. You can't download a group of pictures, it has to be done individually which can take a while.

SNR Contractors & Associates started in 2009 as a family run business with 3-4 people. Today we have over 120 people working for or with us in one capacity or another. Our business has doubled each year for the last 4 years. Construction online has been incredibly helpful in keeping our Owner and PM's updated on daily activities and in conjunction with our Foundation accounting program will give us the incite to grow even more in the coming years.

Pros

Easy to use and update. Expandable. You can use only what you want or practice with the newer options until you are sure you want to use them.

Cons

Occasional outages through the Construction Online sometimes slow down the input and receipt of information. No formal training for mobile users.

Advice to Others

Ask yourself what it is you want out of the program. If it's just logging and calendaring or the whole project management enchilada, Construction Online has it all. And if it doesn't, just ask them about an update. In most cases it's coming up in a new version soon.

N/A

A very organized manner of keeping job information and history logged and accessible. When logging on to the Construction Online version of UDA from another location it seems a little difficult and messy to navigate. I have no issues using or navigating the office/main UDA program. It is a bit frustrating that there are 2 separate programs to have to maintain in order to completely utilize the program. It just seems to be more work than what it should have to be.

Pros

Ability to access and utilize job information from any location.

Cons

The thing that I most like about UDA Construction Online is the QuickBooks compatibility.

Likes Least

The thing that I least like about UDA Construction Online is the multi-user limitations. Newworking UDA is not as streamlined and easy as what it could be.

Recommendations

Ask others who have the software and are using it what they like/ don't like about the software. How has the software helped streamline the flow of estimating, or has it been useful in that way?
