What are the best aspects of this product?
ConsturctionOnline is a great tool but you can further optimize its performance if you use it complementary to ConstructionSuite. The entire suite of solutions works together to help you implement projects faster, easier, and in a more coherent workflow. For estimating costs, tapping suppliers, and staffing, ConstructionSuite will give you a helping hand. Once this is done, ConstructionOnline does all the work thereafter and with client relationship management services. This is made possible with the client portal which allows clients to view all the information they need about the progress of the project. For this, we provide performance reports which we can present with more organization and more visuals for better appreciation. Apart from better communication with clients, it also improved collaboration internally as top management could just draw up a to-do list that can be downloaded to everyone in the team and for each of us to work on.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
The ConstructionOnline is not sufficient when used independently of ConstructionSuite. However, integrating them is not that easy and requires technical assistance. Also, it sucks that it still doesn't have a financial system, giving us no choice but to make do with outdated tools like Quickbooks.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
ConstructionOnline enables everyone to be up-to-date on the happenings within the site, whether or not they are physically on the site. This promotes transparency and accountability in the system and an overall more efficient way to perform tasks. It boasts a slew of advanced cost, profit, and margin tracking tools that enable us to make exacting computations, thus reduce cost on extra material purchases, among others.
