    ProjectWise is good for really large projects with many team members. I would not recommend it for small projects or those with a small team of people working on them. It is best for technical people and those who plan to use it daily. There are better FTP options out there if you just want to use them for file sharing.

        Alternatives Considered

        Bentley Systems

        Bentley ProjectWise from a user perspective just does not stack up to even something as simple as Dropbox. ProjectWise is powerful, it is capable, it has a ton of features. The best implementation I have seen from Projectwise is where the admins unlocked everything and let the users do as they please defeating everything it stood for and using it as a big Dropbox account, though even then the user interface couldn't be improved still causing significant workflow delays. I would reluctantly leave a good company if they implement ProjectWise, I respect that it's powerful for system admins but it sucks for users. This means 2-10% of what it is used for is well designed while the other 98-90% of its functions are just bogged down by a lack of development in its user interface and I say this as someone who has periodically used it over the last 10 years and seen no effective improvement in usability. Bentley ProjectWise was one of the first I believe to do this type of system, but as is common with being the first is you don't keep up with the times and bring a lot of baggage with you.

        Maximo is a good tool and, as I suggested, it is the system of choice for us. We continue to explore opportunities where we can replace our legacy systems in risk management and field mobility with Maximo. Maximo has to work harder to provide a clear picture of how we can do effective asset planning, strategy, and maintenance within one system.

        • Need multiple IT developers and DBA's to run the software at an enterprise level.
        • We use it for logging and taking repair work orders, handling of parts orders, and fulfillment and job scheduling.
        • The desktop version is very easy to use
