    Constructware is well suited for many different types of projects in both real estate and infrastructure. However, it is now becoming outdated with the introduction of the BIM 360 platform. I think even Autodesk may plan to slowly stop rolling out subscriptions to Cnstructware since most of its functions are now getting added on to BIM 360.

    Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Tanmay Bhalerao | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cosential

    • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
    • Report writing could be more intuitive.

    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.

    Constructware (discontinued)

    Better than Unifier:1. Better UI2. Everything else is about the sameBim360 is now the go-to platform for all functions previously provided by Constructware.
    Tanmay Bhalerao | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cosential

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