On-Screen Takeoff

I think most of the reasoning was just provided on the previous pros and cons questions. On-Screen Takeoff (OST) is well suited for doing either quick takeoffs or getting into an elaborate, detailed takeoff. All though the viewing tools are quick and easy, I would still very much prefer using BlueBeam for looking through an overall set of drawings. With all of the hyperlink and bookmark functions of BlueBeam, OST doesn't compare and I rarely use OST unless I'm actually doing a takeoff.

It seems that Oracle Aconex is particularly well suited for small to medium-sized businesses. For our company size, at least, Oracle Aconex is more than capable of providing all of the operation management needs that we could ever conceivably need. However, I can see how some of its flaws wouldn't work for a larger company.

Pros

On-Screen Takeoff

  • The biggest thing for me is that it is so easy to use, which allows it to be used widely throughout our organization without a lot of intense training.
  • Another great thing is that it does not matter how big or little the scope of the take off may be, it works just as well for a whole 12 story building take off as it does for a stretch of sidewalk.

  • Anything can be easily managed from any mobile device, no matter if it is iPhone or Android.
  • It is a self sufficient platform incorporating cost and schedule with drawings and construction models.
  • It allows us to create digital operation and maintenance manuals necessary for seamless handover.

Cons

On-Screen Takeoff

  • It would be nice if you could select an object that occurs on multiple sheets, copy, and paste it into change orders or alternates.
  • If you could search for where a certain condition is being used (which sheet) and go directly to that page or pages, that would be cool.

  • Mail close out features.
  • Document searching.
  • Document selection for transmittal.

The On-Screen Takeoff support staff has helped several coworkers and myself on a wide array of issues. They are typically fast in their response time and willing to help no matter the issue. During one call in particular, I was able to get my issue resolved and even learned a feature of the product that I didn't previously know about. A++ rating!

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.

Alternatives Considered

On-Screen Takeoff

Being able to train individuals in a single afternoon on the program and trusting them to get you something usable as soon as possible is quite invaluable. It is also something that I feel is unique to this program. It is just easier.

Oracle Aconex

I am currently using file sharing such as Egnyte and ShareFile which are useful but don't have much of a transmittal or inmail functionality so I can't really speak to other products in the same league as Aconex. I don't typically like proprietary contractor solutions due to their non-neutrality and embedded agendas, which often are not consistent with the owner's interests.

Return on Investment

On-Screen Takeoff

  • The software has more than paid for itself because the company has been able to save lots of money when awarding to subs since it is easy to verify quantities to qualify their bids.
  • Less of a chance of under-ordering products since the visible audit trail improves accuracy. Also you spend less since you aren't ordering more than you should be.

Oracle Aconex

  • Increased accountability for all tracked areas within the platform is very beneficial in our case.
  • A visible increase in process management quality could be noticed.
