Oracle Aconex

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.

Very good for easy project management without too many details and administration work. In comparison to e.g. JIRA, it's much less complicated which can be a big advantage for e.g. a design team like mine but of course, it can also be a disadvantage for complex IT projects. This is why we're using both in our company.

Pros

Oracle Aconex

  • 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.

Planview Projectplace

  • It allows larger objectives to be split up into smaller tasks which can be assigned to individual team members. This helps in getting one big task done in a more streamlined way.
  • I really like the task scheduling option which sends you an email each morning outlining the tasks you have to do that day.
  • The schedule overview is also very helpful. This shows the main tasks you have to do from a more bird's eye view to see which overlap. Helps with resource planning.

Cons

Oracle Aconex

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

Planview Projectplace

  • Reporting and Dashboarding - Initial presentation of the solution had us believing reporting / dashboarding was all set up ready to go when in fact it needs to be set up by the user.
  • Training documentation mainly all video and online - helpful but challenging for users that prefer manual type instruction

I have loved using Projectplace the last few years, however with recent budget issues, we likely need to cut costs in this area, and Projectplace is on the higher price point for project management platforms. There are also a lot of features in Projectplace that our team doesn't utilize/doesn't apply to our workflow needs.

No downtime-issues since the implementation. It has been very stable

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

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.

Planview Projectplace

I prefer the way ProjectPlace is layed out and it is way easier to navigate than Clarizen. However, Clarizen does allow you to add fields to a project (i.e. configure it for your use case) while there is very little configurability in Project Place. Additional reporting out of ProjectPlace would be a plus too.

Return on Investment

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planview Projectplace

  • Projectplace allows us to avoid a large number of those daily opportunities for confusion and/or loss of time related to emailing new file versions, having to integrate changes in multiple documents, or dealing with file management and data backups.
  • We can carry out conference calls and online meetings with a range of functionality beyond simple screen sharing in order to improve the effectiveness of our communication and time spent during meetings.
