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.

If needed, you can easily share your file with a coworker if you need helps...

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.

SAPPHIRE is way more complete and precise than EzCad. You can't just draw a bunch of lines and make it works( even if in reality it doesn't work). Your work needs to make sense in order to design it. If you make mistakes the software will tell you and you will need to correct your mistakes.
