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

    Navisworks

    Navisworks is a key tool if doing any 3D model coordination with other trades. It will allow you to view your model content with others to know for certain that your design is accurate and can be assembled. Navisworks also comes with a lot of additional tools to make this process easy.
    Aaron James | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Cosential

    • Inputting of companies and leads who may become prospects.
    • Creating specific opportunities for construction projects.
    • Tracking opportunities through the entire sales cycle.
    • Inputting detailed notes and activity by the Sales team.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Navisworks

    • Model Viewing, the navigation tools are really easy to use for walking through the model, especially if viewpoints are set up for key locations.
    • The take-offs work really well and can be very quick and easy if the model was built right.
    christian Maxwell | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    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.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Navisworks

    • A link to BIM 360 Model Coordination is a serious shortcoming. It used to be easy to link to models loaded to BIM 360 Glue for more in depth clash detection.
    • I would have liked the ability to export a simulation created in Navisworks to 3DS Max for a more immersive animation with decent material mapping and better animation tools.
    • I would like to be able to view/create BIM 306 Docs/Field issues directly in Navisworks. In the current workflow we have to use other file formats to work within BIM 360. It would be more productive to be able to navigate the model through Navisworks and to create viewpoints and issues from within Navisworks.

    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.

    Autodesk owns Navisworks, and it seems to have a pretty good support network. A lot of the troubleshooting or support information is provided through an online database, so you most likely would not be getting any personal attention with your issues. Since there are so many users for Navisworks, there is a lot of information on the web.

    Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Navisworks

    Navisworks is a master tool if we want to do any 3D model coordination with any trade of a building. It allows us to view our model content with all elements to visualize and understand for certain where our design stands in terms of accuracy and how all things can be assembled on site. Navisworks also comes with a lot of additional tools to make BIM process easy.

    Return on Investment

    Cosential

    • Allowed for common tracking by business developers in different regions.
    • Helped us quantify effort.
    • Provides great reports for management.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Navisworks

    • It helps in coordination on BIM projects. We have had major project coordination saving millions on jobs.
    • Helps us win more projects as we can coordinate them
    • Used to use the animation tools for site logistics. Now we use game engines.
