Adoddle Software


 

With Adoddle by Asite, project management teams can collaborate on projects in real time from any location, allowing complete visibility into all critical project information, from documents to deadlines, milestones, budgets, and more. Adoddle is unique in that it centralizes all key financial information and project data within a single, easily customizable dashboard.

The system is completely cloud-based, so that users don't need to pay for new hardware (or maintenance). As a web-based system, Adoddle can be accessed from any device, including iPads, tablets, and smartphones, as long as there's Internet access.

We like that Adoddle can integrate all project information into a single point of access, including procurement and document control. The document control feature helps users to keep all important documents, pictures, reports, and notes secure and easily accessible from each project dashboard. Adoddle also features unique project templates, so that projects can be created in a single click - fully configured, and ready for customization. Adoddle can easily open over 300 different file types, so that any necessary project data can be viewed and edited directly in the software.

Adoddle provides an advanced procurement module, so that users can view all transactions made in real-time. A company’s purchasing team can shop for materials in a format that is similar to a traditional online shopping experience, browsing all online catalogues with the correct rates, and creating a seamless experience for purchasing materials. The system is a great fit for a variety of business types, and we often recommend it to general contractors, heavy contractors, universities, and more.

Pros

Search feature, download feature and print features are all nice and easy to find and use. I especially like how you can download parent files.

Cons

The colours are a little bit bland. but other than that I cant find any Cons really. The site is good for what I use it for.

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.

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
Actions often confusing

Pros

There is absolutely nothing positive I can find about this site. There is not one single thing about it which, even remotely, strikes me as a good idea. It needs a complete rethink from the end users point of view, not the programmers ego.

Cons

The use has clearly been designed by a geek & is probably brilliant in their eyes. However, as an end user I don't have the time to spend mucking about trying to get logged in or password verified just to get some drawings & a specification.
It is not rocket science & does not need a level of security far in excess of the FBI.
It is not well thought out, it is over complex & unintuitive

Meets basic requirements

Pros

Classic view is usable and meets most of the requirements for our projects. The mark up function is user friendly and can be helpful if a little rudimentary.

Cons

Abosolutely, can't stand ADoddle. I have been using Asite for ten years now and whilst classic wasn't as good as some of their competitors, Adoddle seems to be even worse. There seems to be an impression that the user always knows what they want. with adoddle you can't spot things you may have already skimmed over that you may want to re-visit. Despite selecting classic view, it still insists on opening in adoddle.... which part of I don't like it don't they understand??? Forcing us to use start with it wont improve this dog of an interface. It's like tinder setting you up on a blind date with Anne Widdicome, and despite being told she's not your type, they set you up again. The constant clashes between the software and others over which version of java to use means most of the time it doesn't even open drawings without phoning the help desk, who to be fair are helpful but inconsistent. As someone who uses conject, 4projects and others I can confirm it is one of the poorest.

Ability to manage the information on my projects effectively.

Pros

I think it does mostly what we expect of it once you know how to use it. The support has been good and quick when I have needed it on the odd occasion. The Adoddle home page is good to use once you know how it works.

Cons

It is not very intuitive to use. The file structure has always seemed odd to me although perhaps it was the Environment Agency who determined that. The files for a job are not all presented when you go into a job. You need to expand to 'all files'. That is not very straight forward on Adoddle.

read the report!

Pros

Very high potential.
There are a lot of good features
Local support has been good
Archiving and retrieval is very useful

Cons

The "BASIC" system and setup is far too complicated thereby causing new users to shy away from it. We have had it for 2 years in a company of 100 people and still only about 3, maybe 5 people use it!!! I have had to withdraw from using it because no one else in the company uses it of even understands how to use it.

There are too many features which are only accessible via hidden or complicated menu.
Linking/sharing information with outside professions is too complicated. (ie Dropbox is far simpler)
Basic Training is poor.
