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.

Viewpoint, a Trimble company

ProContractor is a great fit if you are looking to make the jump to an ERP (accounting) system that offers a higher level of complexity and controls than what QuickBooks or Xero have to offer. However, some of those increased features of accounting controls, vendor compliance management, project contracting and documentation, come at the cost of lost integrations. ProContractor is completely siloed and does not openly communicate with other platforms (project management, bank accounts, etc).

Pros

Autodesk

  • 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.

Cons

Autodesk

  • 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.

  • More of a project management "vibe".
  • Less spreadsheet and complex processes to do things.

    Support Rating

    Autodesk

    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.

    Viewpoint, a Trimble company

    ProContractor support has gone through good times and bad times. However, now that ViewPoint is owned by Trimble the support has been great and stable. Support is good to respond on average urgency tickets. The only complaint is that for urgent tickets communication can be slow even though the support team is working on the issue.

    Alternatives Considered

    Autodesk

    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.

    Viewpoint, a Trimble company

    Procore beats Viewpoint hands down but can integrate well with Viewpoint Vista accounting software. I think that if the Viewpoint software was more flexible if they were more interested in patches, updates, and hearing customer feedback in the way the Procore does, that they would actually have the opportunity to corner the market.

    Return on Investment

    Autodesk

    • 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.

    • Procontractor allows our company to visualize the site and figure out the problematic areas that can't be seen just from plans.
