12d Synergy

12d Synergy and its ability to handle all file types really suited the engineering industry.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

ProjectWise

ProjectWise eliminates the extra burden of keeping a record of deliverables, and users may gladly delete the "SS" folder from their local/network drives, since ProjectWise offers the ability to archive the prior copy, thus generating a new version. Especially for someone in the position of Project Manager or Team Manager, ProjectWise is advantageous owing to its dynamic nature, since it enables the user to determine the overall number of changes made to a project and also keeps track of who worked on a specific file. The degree of control (approve/reject a file) is an excellent feature that enables a project to choose who may really approve a final after it has gone through the necessary Check & Review procedure prior to being sent to the Principal customer, ensuring that each item sent out is technically sound.

ProjectWise

  • It works for collaboration
  • The backend is customisable to do work that other document management systems just cannot do.

Travis March | TrustRadius Reviewer

ProjectWise

  • Loading of large files might take some delay time

Alternatives Considered

12d Synergy

Hands down prefer 12d Synergy. Bentley ProjectWise is overly complex, expensive and has a very cluttered interface.

ProjectWise

It offers us larger and more secure storage space for our data, and all kinds of files may be saved with ease. We may simply share our files with others without fear of losing data, and it ensures the security of our data. After years, projects are readily discovered.

Return on Investment

12d Synergy

  • 12d Synergy has solved our multiple office syncing issues, adding the ability to have staff from remote offices collaborate together on projects.
  • Email saving used to be a nightmare, however, staff finds 12d Synergy's email saving easy to use and are able to search for saved emails quickly.

ProjectWise

  • Provides a central place for people to store files.
  • Incredibly long time to fill out forms to initialise a file. 4 hours to update files instead of about 10mins.
  • Significantly longer to open drawings. up to 1.5mins to open vs about 10seconds.
  • Can't easily batch script over files, thus making this workflow either ineffective or redundant. Scripts can take 10mins to do an hours worth of repetitive tasks.
  • Restricts you to 1 file at a time, so rather than in the morning opening 10-15 files at once and doing other work while they open you have to site their and open via dialogue boxes each and every file. This can take 10-15mins of your morning run.
  • People seem to email more documents unofficially now, which kind of defeats the first point.
