Pros

Flexible, intuitive, simplistic, encompassing, always refining and redefining and listening to the user and the client to ensure the best program for the best outcome.
It is a great way to track correspondence and documents. Mostly it is a good user interface with straight forward logical steps.
Best for traceability and sharing of large files. Very good customer support and works well with Aconex Field.

Pros

Love It, Love It, Love it. It provided all of the features and functionality that one would need in a CRM.
In general I liked the intuitive software, it is a very useful tool for small and medium size companies, excellent tools and very good integration for MAC and APPLE users.
The customer service over the years has been improving with its response-times and helpfulness. It was great when I first started using Daylite and has exponentially improved since then.

Cons

The one problem that is irritating is to log on every time one has to read any mail. To search for the e mail ID's of persons in the loop also takes a lot of time.
Terrible performance - seriously hinders productivity during the day. Uploading files, loading correspondences and workflows load at snails pace and always unpredictable.
Since there are thousands of documents and emails, it is difficult for me to memorize everything.

Cons

Problems in integration with Zapier, poor integrations, unable to sync with google calendar, old fashion face, limited functionality of the mobile version.
My only real frustration is the inability to create customised views and reports across objects - without developers assistance.
Also being restricted just to Apple products made it very difficult to use it company-wide.

Aconex fully complies with internal needs and also allows the organization to be up-to-date with ISO

The best practices in the documentary field for my daily job.

Pros

Document management is a key aspect for the efficiency and productivity of organizations and ACONEX has been fundamental for the magnitude of the project in which I currently work. Aconex fully complies with internal needs and also allows the organization to be up-to-date with ISO 30300 and the best practices in the documentary field. Documentary management how "the strategies, tools and methods used to capture, organize, store, preserve and disseminate content and documents related to organizational processes, is much easier to achieve with the vital support generated by having Aconex with this tool .

Cons

It is difficult for me to trace - match the documents to each other for topics. While there is a chance to download spredsheets, the is quite limit the report, could be better considering something like dashboard or something similar for all the categories of the documents.

Pros

It has most, if not all, functionalities that all relevant project teams require for day-to-day communication and running of project.

Cons

Sometimes the search engine for documents is not very smart. For eg., by entering key words/characters or asterisk (wild card), it still doesn't throw up specific results. This occasionally applies to mail searches also.

I found Aconex to be quite functional and easy to access. It's workflow and document control systems were quite robust. I particularly liked Aconex Field. It is a punch list or snag list tool that uses QR Codes to ID building area, smart phones and tablets to take pictures that you can annotate by drawing on the picture with your finger, and then assign it to a company or even and individual. Great, easy to use product.

Pros

Incredibly robust and adaptable to any situation

Cons

The very robustness makes it time consuming to change for different approval processes.

Reviewed 5 years ago

- Use from start to finish on the project - Control of tendering module - Clear document review process under the workflow module - Mail correspondence can be controlled under mail types - Continual document register automatically updated on document transmittal

Pros

Users have the ability to create a project from the tender phase through the the completion of the project. There is the ability to create tenders, coordinate correspondence, share and store documentation, and defect management.

Cons

Difficult in getting subcontractors to sign up for a user account. There are also issues for project administrators having the ability to remove temporary / users no longer involved in the project. The mobile app is difficult to use.

Complete construction project document and messaging management

Pros

Very thorough, one-stop-shop for email, document management and defects management. Web interface ensures no need for installation on computers.

Cons

The interface can be hard to navigate for some people. Standardising and formatting for messages is difficult. The need to refresh the document search after superseding has led to old drawings being reissued from our company and other consultants.

With automated workflows, I am no longer manually routing documents for review, leaving more time for other tasks.

Pros

I like the multitude of options it provides at a faster speed than most document control software available.

Cons

I least like that there is no out of office function. If someone is on vacation, there is not an automated way to divert any workflows sent to them at that time. If someone leaves the project, there is not an automated way to remove them from existing workflows. I have found work arounds.

- The relation between documents and workflows is not practical, you should copy the link or text from documents and go to workflows to find information, there should be a way to do that automatically. - If I'm not in the workflow and want to download documents, there is no way except going to the original mail.
