"Stunning tool for managing long project documents"

What do you like best?

The clear and simple user interface makes it easy to use tool for managing a large number of complex project documents. I really like the drag and drop file upload option which could be used to upload multiple files in one shot. The dashboard feature makes the control management effective and more productive for larger teams.

What do you dislike?

The cost is high compared to a number of other document management and team collaboration tools. A portion of the regulatory confinements keep the administrators from being as controlling as they should be (i.e. can't restrict users, can't change the status of documents, can't make and include our own user defined statuses or record types, restricted dashboard).

Recommendations to others considering the product

The primary enhancement I might want to see in Aconex is that both a native document and pdf file can be kept in the one record rather than requiring 2 separate records.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before we started using Aconex, it used to be a problem when a team member leaves the team or organization. Tracking the past communication on some documents was difficult to maintain. With Aconex, document information and communication remains forever and is never archived or deleted. It is helping the team to reduce time spent on document modification and management

"Solid and Powerful !!"

What do you like best?

Neutrality, Workflows, single source of truth. Process driven, brings efficiency, reduce turn around times, accuracy. 1st class Product. Consistency. All project documents structured and visible to all Team users on different Organizations. Fully trace ability of who did what, when. Fast. Easy to learn. Self customization according with Project needs. Transparency. No Hardware needed.

What do you dislike?

Increase the length of field to customize Mail-numbering scheme (currently accommodate 8 characters only) in order to accommodate mail numbering schemes like Proj Code-Org Code-Mail Type. The length of 8 characters is not enough, should be at least 20.

Combine Workflow Mail Treads up to WF final Transmittal. Include supplementary files on those WF Final Transmittal. WF step back, and last but not the least being able to start a Sub Workflows from parallel steps on WF’s. Report Insights to be improved.

"Aconex Review"

What do you like best?

The thing that I like the best about Aconex is the ability to share with the entire team on a project to keep everyone current and up to date.

What do you dislike?

One thing that I would like to see is the ability to better work on documents and update them live as opposed to having to download and reupload them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is nothing specific that I would have to say or recommend when using Aconex. Just like any new piece of technology, make sure that it is the solution that you are looking for and have a strategic Implementation program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main problem that we are solving using Aconex is having remote sites and/or remote employees that need access to the information of the project that we are working on in real time.

"Letter and Communication Database"

What do you like best?

I love that we can use this at work for multi-functions. It tracks communication and keeps all communications in the same series. You're able to include different people in different groups. This software is versatile that we can also use it to communicate with other companies, and send out request for proposals.

What do you dislike?

Without any training this software can be somewhat hard to navigate, and not very user friendly if you're not familiar with the function or purpose. It also doesn't support the "back" button in my browser, which drives me nuts!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely have someone on staff who is trained and knows there way around, users will need additional support in navigating this software. However, very useful for multipurpose business needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this to invite subcontractors to bid on bid packages, it tracks when they receive and open, and who was invited. Gives them access to upload their bids, and for us to transmit several documents for them to access. It also allows us to transmit official communication with the owner on our project, keeping everything secure.

Internal change management is essential.

Carry out thorough scoping with your key operational teams. Factor in change management if you've got a large, distributed team.

Replacing several legacy systems with Oracle Aconex has allowed us to consolidate our Group projects in one place and gives us greater engagement and transparency with our clients, consultants and supply chain.

"Great program!"

What do you like best?

I like that I'm able to communicate with and send info (large files) to our subs through the program. I can easily track the open and closed RFP's for future reference.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that after I've read mail in the program, it disappears. I have to click on my mail only and search every time. I'm sure there's a way to adjust this, I just haven't found the settings for this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take some time to click around in Aconex. There is a lot to absorb but you will find it beneficial to use the full program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think it's a great program to blast RFP's as it is easy to follow and allows me to invite specific DBE firms.

"Oracle Review - Nice product"

What do you like best?

Very nice interface for project management. Very useful tool for follow ups and been up to date on every project

What do you dislike?

sometimes it requires too many software updates and reboots of the soft to get up to date.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should switch from whatever your using to Oracle, honestly is the best business tool that you can use. Ask for any uses of this software and there will be a positive answer for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically my daily basis. project management is the most, also pricing, quoting, proposal and data filing. follow ups, keep track of everything

"great for managing files over a lot of users"

What do you like best?

it centralizes all files from different contractors into one place

easy to access

What do you dislike?

Hard to search for data. it could be better defined but it also depends on how the person who updates it on what sub codes they apply to it (so its more of a user error on the other end)

Recommendations to others considering the product

its just like sharepoint in my opinion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

sharing all files (that are made public to the group of course).

Benefits, download everything so when the job is done you have your records... the main GC owns Aconex not you.
