Constructware (discontinued)

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 However, it is now becoming outdated with the introduction of the BIM 360 platform.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.

eTakeoff

eTakeoff for Multinational Construction companies has a challenge to overcome with the communication of package between shared resources, shared folders that came from the Server Solutions and also to declare new information without disrupting the pace of work from one to other estimator. Needs to cover the compression format view for Terminal Server users

Pros

Constructware (discontinued)

  • Provenance. Keeps track of changes and the people/companies who made those changes.
  • Collaboration.

Tanmay Bhalerao | TrustRadius Reviewer

eTakeoff

  • Organize measures of a project.
  • Create formula to measure various items including pitch and board sizes.
  • It can connect to estimating software like Sage.
Nelson David Sanchez Villasmil | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Constructware (discontinued)

  • UI can be improved, as shown by improvements made in BIM 360.
  • Only works well with Internet Explorer.
  • Steep Learning Curve due to confusing UI.
Tanmay Bhalerao | TrustRadius Reviewer

eTakeoff

  • eTakeoff for Construction companies that work with client-server architecture the experience for the end user can be rush between lag or slowness to access to the shared folder resources within WAN access, VPN SSL or IPSEC connections
  • eTakeoff can presents several tips and tricks to share project traces, common access for all the estimators can be overwhelming in case that the main shared folder is not set.
  • eTakeoff requires at least 100 Mbps for remote branch office to connect to Terminal Server station. The format and consult method of shared configurations and footprints can drain the network bandwidth.

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.

eTakeoff

eTakeoff is a software with only one basic function which is project measures and this is a prominent differentiator. Taking measures in Revit it requires a lot of more steps, so eTakeoff is a single task software, that performs it's single task really well.

Return on Investment

Constructware (discontinued)

  • Saves time.
  • Eases collaboration.
  • Increases accountability.
Tanmay Bhalerao | TrustRadius Reviewer

eTakeoff

  • I strongly recommend to declare a design and scaling plan before making the purchase the eTakeoff Basic license has several limitations that will drive you to make a forced upgrade before even kicking out the app for the estimators
  • Affordable at a regular cost considering that Autodesk Solutions like Revit will be a much higher fee per services.
  • The ROI can be achieved after the first 6 months of the initial set up of traces, custom settings and list of items to be used on the construction project.
