I think the complexity and cost of the program make it particularly useful, in situations where: the project is relatively large, with a wide variety of specialties that interact and depend on one another, and with specialists who are not physically together and whose communication and understanding is vital for the proper development of the project. If the project does not meet these characteristics, it is preferable to use less complex tools, cheaper, and that require less effort training the staff to use the software in question.

Easy to use, one-stop for all construction-related tasks. The best thing is the split-screen, during the Bill of Quantity verification users can see for what part of the design Bill of Quantity is generated. Auto-updating of Design is another good feature.

Pros

Bentley Systems

  • It allows the different specialists or users, to make virtual and quick analyzes that have been translated into the rapid resolution of problems.
  • Bentley Navigator allowed me to incorporate and manage important amounts of information that were key in the design phase, and that being inputs for different areas could be a source of conflict. The conflicts that have been generated are much smaller than those seen in similar projects previously carried out without the help of this tool.
  • Allowing the visualization of the information in 3D models, added to its capacity to export 3D models as PD files, has allowed to increase the fluidity and communication of information with the client, which has translated into a reduction of the hours invested by the technical manager in that activity.

  • Allows multiple users to work on the same estimate at once. This is huge!! Not only can we team up on a project that has a quick deadline but we can also simultaneously collaborate on database updates.
  • Performs your takeoff on CAD drawings or vector PDFs. Your typical takeoff software does takeoff on an unintelligent PDF. I say unintelligent because the process you go through is simply to trace the boundaries of your shape. This is time-consuming and can lead to mistakes. With CostX your cursor will stick to the line lines and takeoff the exact measurement. This has cut our takeoff time by 75%. The best part is that this is done in the same software as your estimating software. There are a few software's that have takeoff and estimating in one but CostX is the only one the provides CAD smart takeoff.
  • CostX is a lot like Excel. You have the flexibility to set up your workbooks the way your project team thinks. For example, ours is set up to evaluate labor in two ways; productivity (man-hours per widget) or crew hours (3 guys for two days for a given activity).
  • Reports are very flexible and the report writers is much easier than Crystal reports.
  • If you subscribe to the full version of CostX this provides the most powerful feature of them all......Auto-Revisioning. This function will compare two sets of drawings, identify the changes on a color coded drawing, ask for you to approve the changes and then update your estimate and takeoff. You can even use this to produce custom print outs for RFI's show your design team what changed.
  • Your estimating workbooks are live-linked to your takeoff. As you make adjustments to your takeoff your estimate updates accordingly. The workbook has color coded text to hep your team understand whats behind your estimate; Black = manually input, Blue = rates linked to database, and Green = quantity linked to take-off.
  • Full integrated subcontractor comparison. We use to do this in excel to compare multiple bidders across every division.
  • This is also color coded for a streamlined review process; green = quote, blue = estimate, purple = plug, and orange = other.
  • Built in error checking notifies you if you forgot to normalize an item on your subcontractor comparison.
  • In the near future the software will be available online allowing you to use remotely.

Cons

Bentley Systems

  • It could give alert messages warning that the information that is of shared use, has the latest version, with all the updated modifications.
  • The information contained in the visual reports currently generated by the software could be expanded.

  • iTwo Costx has 3D features that may require enhancement in terms of Look and feel perspective.
  • The eye Function section view feature may require enhancement. But I am not sure how much more we can bring it to scale
  • Not seen Cloud base service. So that easy to use from any where.

      Alternatives Considered

      The tools and functionalities that have been used previously, are not commercial software, they have been software developed internally, of course much simpler and less functional than commercial software such as Bentley and its competition. This fact clearly obeyed a guideline of the organization that aimed to minimize the costs associated with the acquisition of software such as the Bentley.
      As you learn from the experience and mistakes, once you lost a lot of time and money because you did not have the necessary tools to guarantee the timely flow of information, between personnel who were physically distant from each other but who needed of a very high technical interaction. As a result of this fact, the use of tools such as this was proposed as a test, in order to evaluate its real usefulness over time.

      We are not aware of another software that has fully integrated take-off, subcontractor comparison, estimating and reporting besides CostX.

      Return on Investment

      Bentley Systems

      • The frequency and quality of information flow between field and office staff has improved.
      • The costs for cellular use concepts associated with the sharing of information associated with the projects where the software has been used have been reduced compared to projects where more traditional control tools have been used.

      • Easy to Collaborate Between the Team members. Saves a lot of work
      • Integrate with multiple types of data drawing which saves efforts in converting the design.
      • Bill of Quantity export can be done based on the Design section and can share with contractors for Quotes. Instead of just downloading the whole report and then editing for the required pack.
