    Autodesk Bim 360

    Autodesk Bim 360 is well suited to the majority of construction projects in my opinion. On the construction side I could see how the straightforward nature of the platform would be well liked. The new update with the widgets is a great touch and allows for ease of site visits by showcasing good to know info like project location on a map and the local weather. You can also customize the "widgets" as you see fit to add more information if necessary to the home screen. From my experience as a LEED consultant, Bim 360 does not differ much from other platforms used for submittal review like Procore. It is easy enough to search for what you want but searches do take a while and you need to move the cursor over every time you search and do not find what you're looking for, which seems very unnecessary. Overall it is fine for reviewing documentation but isn't anything extraordinary.

    If you've never used software before and have low expectations, then you might be able to make it work out.

    Pros

    Autodesk Bim 360

    • Live updates between design teams. This keeps the team up to date for quicker design and frees up personnel from having to do file transfers.
    • The cloud-based platform gives your company a little bit of a break on computer requirements.
    • Allows multiple offices and/or cloud-based consultants to collaborate on a design as if they are one office or one company.

    UDA Construction Suite

    • The beautiful user interface. It looks good.
    • Their videos are professional.
    • They have webinars.

    Cons

    Autodesk Bim 360

    • Bim360 is extremely unintuitive and frequently confusing to end users.
    • There are multiple avenues of sharing and collaboration for models and information. The advantages/disadvantages of each and how to perform even the most basic of tasks requires extensive training and mentoring for even the most advanced of users.
    • There are many enormous limitations and constraints to BIM 360 that are not immediately obvious and even contrary to published marketing materials and even product naming.
    • Development cycles of the product are seemingly monthly, but incredibly minor. This makes the desperately-needed and glaringly obvious massive usability, capability, and performance improvements into deal-breakers and hair pulling events. Change cannot come fast enough.
    • There are no integrations into Microsoft's Azure AD SSO or other 3rd party SSOs available for SMBs. This makes the provided MFA a huge headache for all SMBs.
    • There are no integrations into the Microsoft 365 ecosystem for SharePoint/OneDrive or Outlook. This is desperately needed for most organizations using Bim360.

    UDA Construction Suite

    • Their spell checker creates a squiggly line to tell you that you have a misspelled word, but, doesn't allow you to correct it.
    • The spell checker lets you add custom words to a dictionary, but, it can only use one dictionary at a time to check spelling. So the default dictionary gets used, and your custom words still show up as being spelled wrong!
    • You can't select-copy addresses, in order to paste them somewhere else.
    • Using duplexing on my printer doesn't work right. It works for every other software I own, but not in UDA.
    • There is a bug in the WIP date range that doesn't pull accurate data.
    • "Options" in the estimate show only cost, not margin. So if you show your customer that report, you are revealing cost info, not selling price!!
    • You can't import a PDF into bid notes, even though the premise of UDA is to try to make it a single repository for all your information.
    • You can't use the arrow key to browse photos in UDA. You need to close, and click into the next one. No inuitive functionality.
    • The estimating module separates material and labor, in ways that create a very confusing Scope of Work. You need to select the labor item from your database, then separately select the material from your database. You end up with two line items in your Scope of Work for the same thing. Instead of writing, "Supply and Install a new window" you have "Supply a new window" and then "Install a new window." It's hard for my estimator, and confusing for my client.
    • UDA will WREAK HAVOC on your contacts in Outlook.
    • It does a terrible job of managing husband/wife or partner/partner situations. You can't mail merge them properly, or, you get forced into combining their contact into into a single contact-- and then how do you know whether the cell phone is his or hers???
    • There is no good way to credit design fees against the construction contract, if you happen to use that paradigm for your contracts.
    • There is no way to filter contracts by their date created. So, how do you find your newest contacts for entering them into something such as Constant Contact?
    • If you try to use integration of QuickBooks(QB) and UDA, your ITEMS list in QB will either get expanded to hundreds or even THOUSANDS of items... or, your POs in QB will get created in a summary form such that they are virtually meaningless.
    • The "lead funnel" graphic may look cool, but there is not a good way to actually report on the lead status, track the activities and calls that you make, note significant emails that you write, or keep track of when you send out thank-you cards or spiffs/gifts!
    • They might tell you that these things work, but, after spending MONTHS with UDA, I found out that these problems are deal breakers.
    • Within their customer service department, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. They do not use a structure such as Zendesk that so many other great companies use. Even though I was paying for priority support, there were often days going by where I could not get a call or email back to assist me with a support request or provide a tutorial on how to do something. Had I not paid extra for support, this would be acceptable. But when paying for "TotalCare" priority support, there are times when the software had me stuck, and I was stuck for a day at a time waiting for an answer. Sometimes no answer ever arrived.

    AutoDesk support is slow and if you are not an enterprise customer they will likely tell you to go to forums and post for help pushing the support on the high-level end-users (some of which are AutoDesk employees). I haven't actually had issues requiring support with docs altough there are some features I wish it had

    Autodesk Bim 360

    The saving in reduced field changes/mistakes quickly paid for the license plus some. The software allows for easy data collection, especially at project completion for field software by checklist creation. Furthermore, the internal punch-list tracking, tracking completion lists and punch lists created for us by others is optimal compared to the competition. We chose Bim360 over other options due to its ability to import out of other software programs directly into the system, adding reports in one location and then distributing it to subcontractors and internally from there to fix deficiencies. It does the tracking, importing, markups of pictures and document viewing well and fulfills our needs.

    QuickBooks has great quality assurance and while they don't provide support, their software is nearly flawless. Co-construct provides great support and solves problems. In comparison, UDA Construction Suite is full of flaws, and their customer service department is disorganized and overworked.

    Return on Investment

    Autodesk Bim 360

    • Positively we use for all safety items, so its potential to save money is really something cannot be quantified. It has helped document trends, big items leading trends and odd ball cases which overall helps perfecting process to eliminate those trends and save time.
    • Negative impact is we need to pay for another program to handle budget, submittals and bidding so we are paying for two systems and paying for all employees to learn each system and possible make errors since there are differences in the systems.

    UDA Construction Suite

    • All my money was wasted. I could not get a refund.
    • All my time was wasted. I spent much time on customer support, and even more time "stuck" where customer support could not be reached.
    • My staff time was wasted, because it was hard for them to implement and then we ultimately abandoned it.
