A Review of Adoddle.

Dashboards are the name of the game for Adoddle. The helpful gauge system can assist employees in decisions regarding cost analysis as well as relevant project information and metadata. The integration of documentation with useful information on various projects is phenomenal.

Pros

Asite Adoddle is great because the cloud-based project management helps to offer fixes for kinks in employee communication, management of documentation, cost/benefit analysis of potential projects, portfolio analysis, and supply chain tweaks and updates within a suite. Bottlenecks are increasingly limited and Adoddle is perfect as far as providing efficiency to various segments in construction contracting; home builders, heavy-highway, utility...all the way "up" to skyscraper projects.

Cons

The search function is in need of some tweaking. Adoddle could benefit in an update because it is reliant on the user influencing the actual end location, as opposed to a detailed search being performed. Though, Asite staff is helpful and available for contact if issues arise.

Clunky and non intuitive

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.

A shockingly bad user experience. Too complex, too cluttered, no guidance

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.

Hamstrung, repetitive, slow, backward

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.

Cons

I found the site very easy to use

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.

There are no reminders for expiring certificates, so we are marked down by the client. This is terrible. Even the most basic systems we have experienced send reminders to update expiring certs and poilicies

Fairly easy to navigate. Visually looks good. Good way of sharing documents.

Pros

The ability to start and share discussions on a document. The way actions on the document are tracked

Cons

Find it difficult to find folder locations at times using the search functions. The on line help system is not always easy to navigate

Pros

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.

Fairly easy to navigate around and find what you need, be that through searching or otherwise.

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.

Easy to Use Document Control System

Pros

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.

I used Asite to upload, review and store data about bridges. The instructions were easy to follow.

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 use Asite to view invoices, to approve payments and to view project documentation.

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.

Do not know how this system works, keep getting emails everyday and don't know why

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.

Whilst I use Asite on a monthly basis I would value a user guide ( it probably exists somewhere) in

Pros

Asite provide both up to date information as well as a good historical record ( mine is a 25 year project)

Cons

Changes to front access screen and associated functionality made my use more complicated especially as I only use the system monthly

Has potential, but frustrating

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.

With training this program is easy to use, I've had a few problems but nothing that wasn' sorted out

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.

Generally Good but have some suggestions for features

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'
