Rform Feature Reviews

13 reviewers had the following to say about Rform's features:

LeeAnn C.

Rform is easy to use and creates a single source of information and documentation for Contract Admin

2018-05-11

Saves time and money in Contract Admin and works well to communicate clearly with the client and contractor.

Pros

I love that Rform organizes Contract Administration files into a single, trackable source making the process clear and transparent to the client.

Cons

Lack of adaptability for alternate construction procurement forms such as Construction Management. Lack of ability to "pause" a project if it experiences delays.

RForm Construction Management Online Form

2019-02-26

Other clients have used other online forms and found them to be too intense and difficult to maneuver around, RForm can be followed without training, it's that easy.

Pros

It's an excellent way for all required parties to watch the scope, schedule and budget of a project anywhere at anytime without the haste of transferring large files, waiting for circulation, or waiting for change order management turnaround times.

Cons

My only concern is that it stay available and I'd like to see the archive work more efficiently.

Rform packs a lot of punch for the price, and its really easy for anyone to learn.

2018-05-08

Reduced a lot of waste in our CAFR processes, allowing the Contract Administrator to focus more on value-adding activities.

Pros

We really appreciated the hands-on approach they took with helping us understand where the software fit in our current CAFR processes, and then helping to on board the first round of staff, the contractor, and client.

Cons

The two things I would like to see improved with the software are having a mobile application, or a very friendly mobile site, and adding support for digitally signing documents.

OK but needs improvements

2018-09-25

Its the best we have found so far but lacking in many features that would make it easier to use.

Pros

Made in Canada for use with CCDC style contracts

Cons

Clunky ftp based files sharing - we end up making separate pdf of all issued documents and manually email them to Contractors so they can use them without having to log-in and download each item.

R-form Review

2019-03-05

We have a hard time convincing the client and contractor to use the software, so an easily digested summary and explanation of uses and benefits would be great.

Pros

It allows us to track projects in one place.

Cons

The number of errors I receive. The page is often down or the features are not functioning properly. During construction these delays are not insignificant. The amount of control often feels limiting. For example, I made a draft revision of a PCO, then when I decided not to make the revision I was not able to delete it, the PCO remained as R1. I never know when actions are permanent and which I can undo/edit.

Hi Elyse,

Thanks for your review and ratings on RForm. We appreciate your suggestion to provide a summary to other team members and we will work on improving that.

We don't know if you noticed, but there is a quick start video attached to invitations that are sent out to other project team members to bring them up to speed quickly.

Regarding the PCO, there has since been a feature added that allows for the removal and complete deletion of forms.

Yes, the exporting excel functionality was down temporarily for upgrading, but is back up and functioning correctly. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other difficulties with it.

Again thanks for your review and comments and thanks for using RForm.

This has simplified the process of Project Communications

2018-05-09

Pros

Ease of use, Customer support, Communications functionality and of course the low monthly cost vs the product you get for the money

Cons

Would be good if you could split the Schedule of values for each sub trade without having to give overall project financials

Satisfied customer.

2019-03-01

Very favorable. Not perfect but close enough.

Pros

The service is an excellent way to manage contract administration for any size design and construction project.

Cons

These form part of the contract as much as the RFI's and PCO's.

Produces solid documentation quickly.

2018-05-08

Rform saves us time and produces accurate documentation.

Pros

Producing contract admin documents with typical office software is slow and inaccurate compared to Rform.

Cons

Some contracts are more complex than others and telling a client or contractor "our software can't do that" is not an acceptable excuse.

Use of RForm

2018-09-26

I've really enjoyed my overall experience with RForm as someone who is neither Contractor, Lead or Owner it took a while for me to totally understand RForm but your videos really helped.

Pros

it keeps the contractors and leads and the Owner in touch so nothing is missed by any of them

Cons

when it goes down. I'm thinking a notification should be sent out to everyone involved with RForm letting them know that it is not working and how long it is anticipated to be before it is up and running again

Much more user friendly than a previous tool that was being used for the same purpose.

These are now permanently on our project and cause clutter.

Great for Contract Administration

2019-02-15

I no longer need to process, or have someone in my office process and file the forms and other paperwork involved in the construction process. Particularly with Certificates of payment. This used to be quite laborious and is much better. It also allows the Owner (or client) to follow everything in real time.

Pros

Allows the users to work anywhere with internet access

Cons

At times can be very slow and is reliant on the quality of the internet connection or other cloud issues. downloading mini-site or excel files so I can work off line don't seem to work or are ridiculously slow
