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.

Sage 100 Contractor is a great solution for contractors. In the construction industry, many companies fail because they are not tracking actual costs to budget. Sage 100 allows for this tracking. It enables a contractor to identify where change orders might be applicable.

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.

  • Payroll processing using Sage Timesheets. Makes online timesheets available to an employee anywhere he/she has an internet connection. This results in better record keeping.
  • Project costing. Between what I do in Sage and what I do in Sage Timesheets, I can project cost in minutes instead of making the data work in the clumsy and time consuming way it is done using just the Sage 50 or 100.
  • Project reporting is now streamlined using the same pairing of software.

Cons

Oracle Aconex

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

  • The Equipment management feature needs some serious updates. Searching for specific equipment shouldn't be this difficult. Example Lets say I'm looking for a "12' step ladder". If don't type in the name of the item exactly it will not return. So if I searched for "ladder" or "step ladder" my "12' step ladder" would not appear.
  • The entire system is not very intuitive or user friendly. At least not what you would expect from a sophisticated program in 2017
  • Needs a mobile application

The cost of Sage 100 Contractor software is relatively inexpensive compared to some higher-priced options like Foundation and Microsoft Dynamics GP. But more importantly, the cost of implementing new software is costly. Implementation costs include testing and training. There are also risks involved with switching software such as missing data after conversion. Plus, there are always some unknown downsides to switching that are not apparent until the switch is made such as perceived capabilities that really don't exist. For these reasons, we will likely stay with Sage 100 Contractor for a long time. If we grow (say double) in size, we would consider other options.

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.

If we ever have issues with Sage 100, the live chat is an awesome tool. However, most of our live chat inquiries are not because of the issues we have, but more for us to better understand how we are supposed to use the software. Sometimes we ask ourselves "what if we" and if we need guidance, the live chat will provide us with the answers or resources to figure out what we need. They always follow up to ensure the problems we encounter have been fixed. If our issue is an indicator of an upgrade that could be made, Sage 100 C offers a way to submit the idea for review and improvement of the software.

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.

It is top of the line for the cost.

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.

Sage 100 Contractor

  • It's had mostly a positive impact - solutions to my problems with accounting integrity.
  • Solutions for happier employees because they have portable time sheets. This makes me happier because I've made it work so I have less to do.
  • I can quickly report on any project with a combination of software.
