Dashpivot - By Sitemate

We are in Construction, but I recommended Dashpivot to my IT guy this morning. I could see a million ways that it could be used by anyone in just about any industry. We have just set up a template to track a specific (very large) variation. Each time spoil is taken from the site, the tonnes, docket number, date, time and rego number of the vehicle are recorded. The Site Manager is also taking a photo of the truck docket and attaching it. We can use the analytics function to track the progress and amounts as we go along. When it came time to bill, all the information will be right there at my fingertips. We are using Dashpivot for Site Diaries, Purchase orders, EOT's, RFI's, Concrete pour checklists, toolbox talks, variation requests, and the lists goes on.... the ONLY thing that our Site Manager has said it is not really suitable is the sign-in sheet. He said that really need to be something that the site visitors and Sub Contractors physically sign. Might work with Dashpivot is we had a "sign on Ipad" or something, but at this point, it is being done manually.

DocStar

It is well suited for billing service storage and retrieval. It ends the need to pay extra for a storage space. It also makes for easy cleanup of files on a yearly basis.

Pros

Dashpivot - By Sitemate

  • Manages photos via the use of tags
  • It's intuitive, so even a user who has basic computer skills can utilize it.
  • Punch listing - a great tool to do your inspection with Subbies, take pics, load them into a form, and workflow the form to them.

DocStar

  • Templates - By being able to create templates for each document type, it made organizing files much easier. It also made the titles similar in format, which also allows for better organization.
  • We were able to scan documents directly into docStar, which helped us eliminate extra steps. For example, if we were missing a page from a document, and we received it at a later time, we could scan just that page into docStar as opposed to scanning the entire document again.
  • The functionalities are straight forward, so it is not hard to use the docStar system.

Cons

Dashpivot - By Sitemate

  • To send the induction template to every sub contractor to fill out and send back to us before entering site. Once we have the basic information we then can do the induction and sign off after completing the induction. Each induction could generate a number and it could form a list of names to a number on a register.
  • Site safety audit. If we could carry over a problem to create a list that has to get signed off ones done. That would be very handy.
  • Every one of our files generated is to be able to be re detected back on our own business server.

DocStar

  • Cost is an issue, pricey for what it's essentially glorified cloud storage.
  • No ability to lookup vehicles by stock number or phone number.

It is so simple. I put off getting an online system for sooooo long because I dreaded the thought of getting a new system, having to set it all up and having to teach everyone how to use it. I also envisaged me being the port of call every time it stopped working or people didn't know what they were doing. I now wish I had done it a long time ago. The set up was so basic. I had 45 minutes of training over the phone in front of my PC and I was set to go! By the end of the day, I had already gone from "I'm just going to start off with Site Diaries and implement everything else gradually" to "this is bloody amazing, everything is now on Dashpivot and everyone is using it!" We converted our entire site and internal systems over to Dahpivot by Site Mate in the space of a day! True story.

Customer support has been amazing. Every time I've even had a question it is resolved very quickly either through the live chat function or a phone call to their friendly team. A lot of companies strive to have good customer service most of the time. In my experience, Dashpivot has great customer service every time I need it.

Alternatives Considered

Dashpivot - By Sitemate

I don't think I have used a product like Dashpivot before. There have been times and projects where I've used different types of online databases but none were as flexible and as well suited to our needs as Dashpivot has been. Being able to adapt to situations we use it for and willing to further develop the app for situations that we desire to use it for in the future makes this one of, if not the best construction-related app that I have used.

DocStar

A former employee of our company chose DocStar after much research and Q&A with the DocStar seller. I believe she truly put a lot of time/effort into choosing this system, but the end result is that it is not a good match for our company. After reviewing her notes, I believe she chose the system due to its ability to be customized through the template system

Return on Investment

Dashpivot - By Sitemate

  • Dashpivot helps keep track of the resources and finances being used in a project making it easy for us to make well-informed decisions.
  • It usually would take a day to get the report to the Project Engineer, but with the Dashpivot the reports are almost instant with a good internet connection.
Cema Talei | TrustRadius Reviewer

DocStar

  • We have saved almost 10,000 dollars a year just in toner cost. We had to implement some up front cost for tablets and other computer aspects but the initial cost of this was about 3,000 to 4,000 dollars. docStar has saved us an instrumental amount of money and will so in the future as well.
