Customer service is the main target for organisations where Buildsoft global is the perfect software. I am totally amused by this software. Cost accounting of the organisation can be easily done which is helping most. Sometimes it is lacking some criteria. With this software, we can not enter the total journal entries which are making some problems. However, it is great software.

For outstanding project managing and operational assistance, Oracle Aconex is an incredible program. The budget that suits every project are met and followed. More so, Oracle Aconex takes the permits required, for instance, the insurance permit and the license tracking. The contractor management feature is also encoded on Oracle Aconex, making the investor and the contractor have the same objective.

I am currently using file sharing such as Egnyte and ShareFile which are useful but don't have much of a transmittal or inmail functionality so I can't really speak to other products in the same league as Aconex. I don't typically like proprietary contractor solutions due to their non-neutrality and embedded agendas, which often are not consistent with the owner's interests.
