Great App

No more paper on our jobsites! I would give my overall experience a A+!!

Pros

The easiness of operation is the best part about this application, it is very easy to start from scratch a master.

Cons

The lease appealing thing about this application is the was that I couldn't delete RFI's when I was using the app...

Increases our productivity and the ease of distributing plans tremendously.

Pros

The ease of uploading large files and being able to set up the filing system the same way that we have it set up in house means that all of our employees already understand how the skysite filing system works. I also really like being able to keep track of who has ordered what, and who has downloaded what. The auto-hyperlinking feature is also very neat, but still needs some work in regards to reading sheet names correctly.

Cons

The software struggles reading our sheet names which means that we have to re-type the sheet names every time we upload a set of drawings. Specifically, the software cannot distinguish the letter "I" and instead reads it as a "1". Our sheets are all labeled TI-X.X but the software reads them as T1-X.X and always assigns the discipline as "telecommunications" when it should by Tenant Improvement or Architectural. The software is pretty consistent when reading our engineering sheets and usually gets those correct, both sheet names and discipline.

SkySite allows us to effectively manage and share a lot of projects with our team

I can effectively manage many projects and large construction plans myself without relying or waiting on someone else

Pros

I like the ability to index Plans by page and easily have the latest set at any point in time with an option to print the narrative at any time. I also like the open software and ability to integrate with BlueBeam.

Cons

I don't like the effort and time it takes to upload a document. Once uploaded, it can't be moved and is very cumbersome if you make a mistake. When dealing with plans over 500 pages, the system bogs down and hard to send links easily. I've encountered many problems where the system will not send links with the correct time frame requested or linked information. When sending links, I wish I could type in a date instead of scrolling through calendar OR have a "never expire" link option. I don't like the default only see 50 pages at a time and I can't scroll through a document without the screen needing to regenerate, which takes more time. I dislike the effort it takes to switch projects views, that I can't have the option to permanently pin the folder tree to my toolbar. I dislike the search or filter feature that it doesn't retrieve documents efficiently or sort them by relevance and hard for users to search. Since it doesn't operate like windows, many of our users have a difficult time using it.

I have used this site for two projects and have had great success.

Easy file sharing. Communications made easy.

Pros

Ease of use. Most all subcontractors can easily navigate the software. I like the ability to set alerts for individual files.

Cons

The submittal files could use some additional ways to monitor the activity of the submittal. Make the availability to check out a submittal, stamp it and check it back in, somehow indicating that it has been reviewed by the appropriate person.

I honestly can not complain about the software. It's the first project that I had to use it on.

Pros

It definitely is a great complement to hardcopy plans. The hyperlink aspect within the sheets are amazing. From the hyperlinks on the Table of Contents to the detailed hyperlinks within the individual sheets along with the hyperlinks to the growing 700+ RFIs on this project.

Cons

There has been bugs we've been dealing with, however your customer service have been great to work with and have been communicating with me on a timely/immediate basis. In additional, not having the power to package drawings (PDF set, sheets 1 to 300 +) on our own. When we download drawings, you only have the power to download individual sheets. When you download the whole set, they are not in order.
