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.

Sage Estimating

Sage Estimating was initially created for the construction industry and many of its current users use it to estimate buildings, but it has adapted quite well for the oil and gas industry. If the user is willing to invest the time and energy to develop and maintain their database, I can see it working for any industry.It is very easy to adjust and adapt the database as estimating methods and project designs change. As an example, our accounting department sometimes changes the way projects are reporting in our accounting software. Because I can go through our 9000 line item database in a couple of days, I am always ahead of the curve and can report my estimates in the format they require.

Pros

Dashpivot - By Sitemate

  • Site induction works well to capture all the information live from taking photos of the white card, licence and relevant certificate. Now with the new touchless system this will work even better.
  • I have found doing daily site diary is so easy to do now. To be able to capture progressive photos on the go. Also to list problems, track plant and equipment hire is a very good tool.
  • The site Safety template also works well as a quick way of capturing things and helps follow up on your own internal audits.

  • Sage Estimating is very good at providing the users (and eventually clients) with a clean, well broken down estimate of how we have come up with a specific bid amount. It allows consistency among our different precon managers in how they present the final numbers of a bid.
  • The way Sage Estimating presents itself to a precon manager/user allows ease of use from the very start such that someone can build a bid with very little training.

Cons

Dashpivot - By Sitemate

  • Development Wait Times - While happy to develop and update their products to suit customer needs there can be a waiting list for features to be developed if they aren't part of the platform already. If you are in a rush and a feature you need isn't available on the app then it may not be the best choice.

  • Interface to other BIM applications
  • Reports are lacking

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.

Sage's support of Estimating is adequate though frankly we rarely need it. Outside of more complex operations such as upgrades and installation problems the program itself is so straightforward that we do not usually have any "issues" and questions that are more about usability can easily be answered in online forums. We trust Sage's capability to answer these questions if needed but rarely use it.

Implementation was super easy and dare I say fun! I thoroughly enjoyed the implementation process. We all got excited coming up with suggestions and ideas for what we could implement next.

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.

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.

Sage Estimating

  • Sage Estimating software is superior in almost every way to using spreadsheets. I have used both methods to estimate projects and much prefer estimating software. Using this software I can estimate an entire compressor station in under an hour. It literally takes seconds to generate the estimate; and then I spend the rest of the time adjusting and reviewing it. This saves hours of time and allows me to produce hundreds of estimates a year.
  • We maintain a high level of accuracy by using Sage Estimating. While there are always outliers, most of our estimates fall well within the accuracy range of the class of estimate we produce. (Our accuracy ranges are based on AACEI guidelines.) Overall, our projects generally fall within +/- 5% of the budget.
  • The accuracy and quality of the estimate is only as good as the time and energy invested in maintaining the database. The database requires quite a bit of maintenance in order to keep it accurate. I spend perhaps 10% of my time working with the data.
