The Best Plan room Software in the Business

I have tried the competition. There is honestly no comparison. As a company - I feel man hours are saved on the bidding in - because every bit of info we need is all in one place. Pipeline is a great tool for sending out notices, RFI's, etc as well as a place to promote the project with initial drawings and specs.

Pros

Ease of Use. If you can point and click with a mouse - you can become a pro and organizing your projects and staying on top of your sub participation. Accountability with Subs. We have used tools in Pipeline that have helped us solve disputes with subcontractors in terms of drawings and notices they have received. It will keep you on the forefront to know what sub participation you have for each project, and a subs percentage of response/number of times they actually turn in a bid. Did I mention customer service is bar none?

Cons

I'm still hopefully waiting on a shareable V-card of subs.

Reasons for Choosing PipelineSuite Bid Management

There really is no comparison. Other programs I have used are Pantera, BlueBook and Planhub.

Pipeline Gets it Done

Pipeline is definitely one of the best solutions out there in my opinion. The ability to manage and see every interaction (with time/date stamps) along the process is very beneficial. It is simple to use and intuitive so that makes bringing people up to speed easy. Overall we are very pleased with Pipeline.

Pros

I like that the program is web based, this helps make it possible to access on the go. Also we don't have to have our subcontractors download any software or set up any logins. Ease of access and use is a major plus.

Cons

We sometimes have difficulty with the invites not going through to our subs. Certain companies have increased security measures on their email and getting the messages through can be difficult.

Pipeline Suite User

Overall, it was a good program to start our bid invite process on or if you are a smaller company it would be good and cost effective. However, it's very manual. We have since changed to a more automated and user friendly program for our own needs.

Pros

This software is simple to use and is effective. It's user friendly and a beginner can learn quickly how to operate all aspects of the program.

Cons

This software is very limited and repetitive. If we want to send invites to a specific vendor, we have to list that vendor in each sub category and select from the sub category. This would in essence drive us to set up each vendor and then go through an incredibly long sub list for each vendor. We have hundreds of vendors an this takes an immense amount of time. Very manual.

I could sum this up with one statement, Pipeline Suite is Great!

We are sold on Pipeline Suite. We researched numerous products to help us solicit bids. No company was so responsive as Pipeline and no company exceeded our expectations, and continues to do so, like Pipeline Suite!

Pros

We are a general contractor who has been around 75 years and we have been soliciting bids pretty much the same way for all that time. We really didn't realize what a colossal waste of time and effort our old system was until we started using Pipeline Suite. We used to try to get plans and specs to our subs and suppliers by email, on dropbox, by fax or even by snail mail. Now we just click on the star to add them to our project and they have access to all the project information. Our subs and suppliers love it. I head comments like, "If more contractors did this I wouldn't have to pay for an online plan service". This program has been a real game changer, and in a time of increased competition, this gives us the edge we need! Thanks Pipeline Suite!

Happy Customer

It's been a useful software but their customer service is FANTASTIC. I always feel like my questions are given priority and handled in a timely manner.

Pros

It's an easy to use smart tool to communicate with lot's of clients at once. We use it to send out large drawings files for subcontractors to bid from.

Cons

The search capabilities for phone numbers has to be exact instead of partial. I wish software would help identify duplicates as your are entering them.
