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 However, it is now becoming outdated with the introduction of the BIM 360 platform.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

Trimble Accubid

We use Trimble Accubid to do detailed cost estimates for larger jobs. If a job has a set of blueprints, the software is designed to go through each page systematically to aggregate a bid. Where it is less appropriate are for smaller service jobs. It takes a lot of setup for a new job there are other solutions better suited for service work.

Trimble Accubid

  • Needs to update a data base for new emerging markets in energy.

Trimble Accubid

Trimble Accubid 7.1
Based on 6 answers
Accubid can sometimes fall short when it comes to CS. The correct departments aren't always properly delineated, making it difficult to get ahold of the individual most appropriate for your issue. To that end, it has been outsourced to people with accents sometimes difficult to understand. This is my biggest critique

Alternatives Considered

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.

I was not involved in the decision-making process to purchase Accubid.
