    Pros

    Easy login and relatively good markup tools. Ability to set up dialogue in application and follow up on changes.

    Cons

    Search facility is very poor and relies too much on the user directing it to the location. Front end is very unhelpful and does not easily allow full visibility of project tasks outstanding. Classic view is much better, however administrators and the company clearly have an agenda to promote Adoddle interface as the system defaults to this on login. Drawing comparison tools are not as slick as other packages and dialogue on markup tools is not very versatile. Running discussions on drawings can be frustrating as it doesn't have a natural conversation feel due to being difficult to view all comments and responses at the same time. Used it on and off for the last nine years and never seems to get any easier to use compared with other software tools.

    None whatsoever

    Pros

    Closing it down. I don't like anything else about it, and I never look forward to having to do anything with Adoddle or Asite or whatever it is this week.

    Cons

    It is labyrinthine and nothing seems to work. Too many acronyms, no screen tips, no simple view. I hate it. It takes too long to do things which should be fast. It is a hoop I have to jump through and is massively less effiicient than the old ways of doing things.
    Even the front page is annoying. If I never had to use it again, it would be too soon. I am not a Luddite with no idea of 'systems', I am perfectly comfortable with database systems, but this front end is truly dreadful.

    Pros

    There's not a lot to think about that is a positive here. I can't think of a feature that we use as a user that is actually any way better than competitor products.

    Cons

    Folders as a paradigm for upload.
    UI/UX is inconsistent.
    UI is bloated and not focussed on critical path - style over function.

    It was a very easy system to navigate. i am waiting on feedback from the customer on the documentation.

    Pros

    Ease of use & support. I found the site very easy to navigate. It was my first time using the system. I also received a lot of support.

    Cons

    I haven't any cons to report at the moment. I have just begun using the system so I haven't come across any problems as yet.

    It seems to have a lot to offer and I like the customisable dashboard. Compared to other programs our clients use this feels more modern!

    Cons

    It is very hard to use - functions are strangely placed and hidden or require prior actions like putting documents in basket. Also different functions seem to be available depending on which view is used.

    Files can be indexed and are easy to search. Multiple versions and revisions are easy to find and compare.

    Cons

    Further work is needed on outputting of reports. Whilst the inbuilt systems give an overview in order to produce meaningful reports you need to extract the data and use external systems.

    Storage of large and complex data sets to which access can be controlled.

    Pros

    You have at least 2 options for carrying out each operation. The bright colours on the screen help to energise you while working on the data. Its multifunctionality for different data types.

    I provided feedback on Asite which will hopefully get taken into account to improve the system.

    Pros

    The information I want is there, provided that I can find it! I can share data with my project team, including client, consultant and contractor staff.

    Cons

    I find it difficult to navigate around and find information. It's too complicated and not intuitive enough.

    I don't like this system at all. The best thing about it is that I don't have to use it on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Not having had any training on it, every time I have had call to use it ended up using an alternative system because it fails. I keep getting emails from regarding projects that have finished over a year ago and no one seems able to stop them, which is very annoying. This seems to be system for the sake of a system and I see no point in it.

    Not so many. The ability to view drawings within the browser rather than using specialist software is the only thing I've found to be a positive.

    Pros

    As a cloud store for project information such as drawings, it allows a sensible folder structure and easy searching, the key benefit is the ability to view drawings/models using the built-in viewer without needing specialist software.

    Cons

    It's not intuitive, the project forms and workflows are clunky and hard to navigate. Too many notifications. I suspect this product can probably do more and be better than I have experienced, but that depends on the skills and experience of the administrators. I will be sticking with our in-house designed and customised sharepoint sites for future projects.

    As a company, we have benifited from using this softeware quite well. We use it as a drawing issue and distribution cloud - So that our site teams and external consultants have a simple way of accessing the most up to date drawings we have issued. This obviously saves time for ourselves from having to distribute multiple drawings to multiple people at multiple times via multiple emails etc. But also on paper costs of having multiple drawings posted to consultants etc. The site is relatively easy to set up (With proper training) and navigate, so we have never had any issues from anyone trying to find something - but that is more to do with us setting appropriate file names etc. Although A-site does give us the opportunity to do that.

    Pros

    We're a construction company, so we use A-site as an information distribution website across our construction site teams and external consultants alike. I like the ease of setting up colleagues & distributing to multiple members of the site team and their ease of access. I believe that uploading drawings and superseding is very simple and the amount of information you can put onto the site when setting up projects is great. The layout is incredibly easy to use and I like that you can select the folder permissions to allow certain team members to see certain aspects etc. Thats a great feature if used appropriately. The overall presentation of the drawings is excellent and I love that you can view an overlay of 2 different drawing revisions so that its easy to spot where revisions & changes have been made - great feature. When I have had issues, your team have been quick to react and very informative and helpful, I cannot fault them!

    Cons

    It can be quite complicated to set up new projects and sometimes the drawing uploader crashes. On some occasions, drawings have not uploaded at all. frustrating. Additionally, the build of the site with classic view and Adoddle 17 view is rather frustrating, as the classic view looks very dated - I believe steps should be made to incorporate the old style database into a new website - or at least revamp it. If you hadn't had any training on A-site or not taken the time to navigate you would get lost easily and make mistakes. Luckily I am well versed in classic view now so I find it relatively easy to follow.

    Pros

    Saved searches are good could be improved by allowing users to set the content of the search too as a quick link, Adoddle view is intuitive but you have to stop looking at the document to perform any actions on it (all the right click on the search result actions would be handy), also would be really good to be able to write comments in the panel on the left with the document view open . Being able to see the document history is good but perhaps could be improved with filters (dont' always need to know when anyone has ever read the document)

    Cons

    Email notification summary isn't particularly useful, could perhaps be a grid with required/Overdue on one axis and action type on the other? If I have an action to review its much more important than 'For Information'

    In comparison to other systems I have used (Aconex, Encompass, 4Projects) Asite does not come up as reliable software, due to number of errors and outages occurring. 2 critical outages only this year.

    Pros

    Good search engine and very well trained support desk.

    Sadly I have no more positives to fill in 100 characters count

    Cons

    System frequently crashes. The highest critocal failure rate of all systems I worked with
    Files and communications disappear from the register
    No feature allowing tracing contractual responses to document submissions
    Very complicated and not user friendly reporting tool
    Too many hidden functions but not easy to find
    Not being able to associate documents together - such as document and comments sheet
    Large number of errors
    Bulk upload fiddly
    Problems with the control over auto numbering
    No capacity to correct errors
