BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

BuildingConnected is a great tool for construction managers and general contractors working over a wide area that rely on collecting multiple bids. BuildingConnected does a great job at presenting new contractors that may fit the bill for who you need to look at and price a job. Its simple interface allows you to easily see who the main point of contact is at a company, and place comments for your team to review after corresponding with these companies.

eTakeoff

eTakeoff for Multinational Construction companies has a challenge to overcome with the communication of package between shared resources, shared folders that came from the Server Solutions and also to declare new information without disrupting the pace of work from one to other estimator. Needs to cover the compression format view for Terminal Server users

Pros

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

  • Helps keep track of multiple jobs at once
  • Helps sort your bid invites into won/lost/pending/archived etc.
  • It is a central location where general contractors can put all their updated files and addendum
  • Lets you see which contractors are bidding the same job so you can coordinate your estimating
Matthew Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

eTakeoff

  • Organize measures of a project.
  • Create formula to measure various items including pitch and board sizes.
  • It can connect to estimating software like Sage.
Nelson David Sanchez Villasmil | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

  • There was a previous glitch where bid forms have been updated by subcontractors that have accessed a former version are not able to access the updated/new bid form.
  • I would like to see the ability for BuildingConnected to automatically send a bid reminder to bidders at a set amount of time prior to the bid date.
Melanie Dodson | TrustRadius Reviewer

eTakeoff

  • eTakeoff for Construction companies that work with client-server architecture the experience for the end user can be rush between lag or slowness to access to the shared folder resources within WAN access, VPN SSL or IPSEC connections
  • eTakeoff can presents several tips and tricks to share project traces, common access for all the estimators can be overwhelming in case that the main shared folder is not set.
  • eTakeoff requires at least 100 Mbps for remote branch office to connect to Terminal Server station. The format and consult method of shared configurations and footprints can drain the network bandwidth.

They are constantly reaching out to see if there is anything they can teach us. It can be a bit aggravating when it is constant, but I know that they have our best interest at heart. They also had all of us do multiple Skype meetings with a support rep to make sure we understood the software.

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

Have used BlueBook Construction, which has a smooth, quick search for local contractors. Still, they don't allow us the client project creation. I even had issues with them displaying proper project descriptions based upon was receiving inadequate and or erroneous bid proposals, and the engagement manager was not flexible in resolving the problem!

eTakeoff

eTakeoff is a software with only one basic function which is project measures and this is a prominent differentiator. Taking measures in Revit it requires a lot of more steps, so eTakeoff is a single task software, that performs it's single task really well.

Return on Investment

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

  • Allows our company to accurately estimate the cost of a project.
  • Helps us to reach out to qualified subcontractors based on past experience and history with our company.
  • Contains bid leveling capabilities to ensure that all proposals cover a full scope of work.

eTakeoff

  • I strongly recommend to declare a design and scaling plan before making the purchase the eTakeoff Basic license has several limitations that will drive you to make a forced upgrade before even kicking out the app for the estimators
  • Affordable at a regular cost considering that Autodesk Solutions like Revit will be a much higher fee per services.
  • The ROI can be achieved after the first 6 months of the initial set up of traces, custom settings and list of items to be used on the construction project.
