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 However, it is now becoming outdated with the introduction of the BIM 360 platform.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

It is very adaptable to our business plan. Also, it is very cost-effective than any other software I used while working with previous companies. Also, as previously mentioned it helps a lot with our takeoffs, customers know what the job consists of, and what our costs are, and make it easy to pass on job management items to others.

I dealt with one individual and the owner. After making me feel stupid for not being able to get an up to date price list from my suppliers, they decided to try. There were unsuccessful as well. The right thing to do would have been to refund my money, but they refused to do that. I was lied to and basically called a liar on many occasions (including in emails). I have never had an experience like this with a company before. Most of the other companies guarantee their products and would refund your money if something was wrong, didn't work or you were unsatisfied. Not this company! They could care less once they have their money.

Better than Unifier: 1. Better UI 2. Everything else is about the same Bim360 is now the go-to platform for all functions previously provided by Constructware.

We selected TurboBid because it was very cost-effective. The adaptability to use this program is also very easy and guidable. The database has a very large capacity. Along with the accuracy of the program as well. As you can see there are many reasons to go with TurboBid as it delivers to the contractors with ease.
