I'd give 15 out of 5 if I could!

I've never experienced the level of service and support from any type of company, especially a software company. We're very excited to work with DADO and implementation has been a breeze! They respond almost immediately to any and all communication, and they value feedback like I've never seen before. They're truly making this a top of the line product FOR their users and it shows. Invaluable in my opinion. I can't imagine NOT having DADO after having used it.

Pros

I love that it saves me so much time on a day to day basis. It really creates a clear path to information we've never had before. Our field staff is more efficient and our office staff is able to focus more on operations rather than assisting with finding information.

Cons

I would love a bit more automation, although I'm told this is something the team at DADO is working on implementing and based on their track record of superior responsiveness, I've no doubt life will get even easier thanks to DADO.

Overall, I really like DADO. I like how user friendly it is. This makes it a lot easier to get people using DADO. I would just suggest finding a way to get DADO to read info on documents a little better. This would save me even more time.

Pros

I like how user friendly this software is. It's pretty easy to navigate and upload documents in DADO, as well as, show new users how easy it is to use DADO. MY favorite thing about DADO, is how documents automatically sync from BIM. This saves lots of time on my end.

Cons

Sometimes DADO can't read info on drawings I upload. For example, it can have a hard time reading dates when I click on 'Identify Info'. If I'm trying to upload 50+ drawings, and I have to go through and fix dates on each one, that can be a little time consuming.

Thank you for your feedback Breana! We are working on some improvements to text recognition that should help reduce the amount of manual work you need to do to make your documents searchable. Keep an eye out - they're coming soon!

Office to Field Application

Tedious at times but seems to be getting better, especially as more users jump on.

Pros

Getting our Supers the Prints and Specs and Misc Documents.

Cons

I wish they could use it as a form fill, like daily reports, mark up drawings. Filter buttons on the home page to be able to filter down by PM. More customizable categories to upload into.

DADO delivers the goods

The Cons are not major strikes and the team ad DADO has been very proactive and engaged in working to remove any pain points. I feel that any construction company would benefit from working with DADO to help make their field teams, where we all make our money, more effective and efficient.

Pros

DADO delivers on its value prop. Taking all of our project documentation and providing easy, reliable, and industry specific search so our field teams can locate the information they need quickly to do their job. Our project teams spend less time sifting through file folders or calling back to the office to get their questions answered. Excellent document viewer and search.

Cons

Two things that need a bit of refinement, and they are working on it, are file syncing from other datasources and working to lighten the administrative burden to get documents published.

Using DADO

I very pleased with the ease of use with DADO. very easy to find spec and drawings

Pros

I really enjoy using the DADO site. I allows me to walk through the site without a set of drawings. I can show coworkers the drawings or pull up other trade drawings to try and locate and conflicts before they take place.

Cons

I have noticed that I constantly get kicked off the DATO site. Not sure if this is a DADO problem or an iPad problem. I make sure my iPad is always updated.
