ConstructConnect Insight

It is very well suited for finding projects where your product is specified, and I just use my company name. but, for other keywords, great.. and then it highlights where you are on the document that comes up. Also, it tells you how many times in the specific project documents it is found so you can find all of them.Not sure, but we're not sure how legal, or ethical, it is for the database to show contact names, phone and email addresses. We don't believe those people appreciate unqualified inclusion in company databases for marketing communication.. ie e-newsletters, etc.

Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.

Cons

ConstructConnect Insight

  • I would like to see the Listing date for a project in the exported excel sheet
  • I don't know where to find it, but make available and easy to find and reference the search rules.. like using the AND, OR.. type of functions.
  • I don't like it that when you open up insight it defaults to an Updated Within level. I always have to remember to turn that off before I run my searches.
Woody Dickinson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cosential

  • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
  • Report writing could be more intuitive.
  • The company seems to cater to larger users.

Cosential is very intuitive for the AEC industry and has the ability to be customized for your specific needs. The reports are especially helpful, with good visual dashboards.

My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

don't know, haven't used or even courted anyone else for this purpose. Found Reed years ago at ASHRAE/AHR expo, and started it with their pitch then and their good assistance since then.

Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.
