LoadSpring Solutions, Inc.
LoadSpring is great for managing licenses so that a user who hasn't been utilizing the software can be placed inactive so the license isn't being occupied. Managing services and applications is great. You can easily change access through the management portion of the service. Uptime is also very good.

For outstanding project managing and operational assistance, Oracle Aconex is an incredible program. The budget that suits every project are met and followed. More so, Oracle Aconex takes the permits required, for instance, the insurance permit and the license tracking. The contractor management feature is also encoded on Oracle Aconex, making the investor and the contractor have the same objective.

  • Interface needs work; graphically inelegant, somewhat non-intuitive.
  • Process controls could be better 'templated' for industry standards.
  • Dashboard/to do for project managers - it's still too hard to see who is slowing the project down.

Support Rating
LoadSpring Solutions, Inc.
LoadSpring support is very quick to respond. They have self-service for support which is great for quick fixes on the end-user side of things. They will respond with a good solution and if they need further assistance from an administrator, and they email them so they can assist the end-user with their issue.

We're delighted with Oracle Aconex's functionality, UX, capabilities, and feature offerings. The only thing that keeps us from giving it a perfect 10/10 is the price. There are other options out there that won't burn as deep of a hole in your pocket, but then again, you get what you pay for.

LoadSpring has a great up-time compared to our old hosting service. We haven't had many outages and very few issues while running our concurrent sessions. Automated license management has been great so our active licenses stay very low. I wasn't involved with the purchase and migration but I feel this was the better option.

Oracle Aconex seems to be tailored for our specific needs since it supports construction project information and all related type of data. It is secure and compliant which makes it crucial for real-time collaboration and control of job site processes. Other platforms that we have evaluated are still well designed, but much more generic which is not favourable for our engineering projects.
