Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

  • Ease of tracking cost throughout the estimate - The software enables the user to quickly pull up reports and verify, crew hours, equipment hours and the total cost of these items. We can look at our labor and equipment budget on a project in a matter of seconds.
  • Pay item and Proposal Screen columns - This enables the user to quickly look at the overall estimate from a cost and margin standpoint. There are a lot of features to choose from in the columns which give the user choices to share in a group setting when reviewing the final bid proposal. some key elements that we like to use are: Total Cost, Margin, Forecast Qty, Subtotal Amount, Subtotal Description, Lock Price, and Rounding Precision.
  • PBS Screen - This screen is a great resource for quick snapshots at direct and indirect costs on a project. We also use subcontractor and vendor status frequently.
  • Job Properties - This is ultimately one of the best features in the software, it lays the groundwork for each project and gives any user the background for the project.
  • It is hard for someone who does not use the software to understand. I have found over the years that if you do not use In-Eight on a daily basis it is very confusing to show a non-user what is going on.
  • It takes a long time for someone to be proficient in the software, I have a college graduate from USC who has a high learning capability and he struggles with it.
  • Understanding the information on the screens, a lot of people have a hard time digesting the information on most of the pages.

  • Tagging segments of work.
  • User defined views and descriptions for all screens.
  • Customizable ribbons to provide an efficient use of the software.
  • Multiple layers/dependents to allow for an extreme drill down of the work and the ability to roll up to a more useful level for upper management review.
  • You can bid the work as you would build it, in detail.
  • Tie into QTO software such as blue beam or Planswift.
  • Better training of users and continuing education.
  • Links to plan sheets for CBS lines for reference.
  • Ability to have pdf link in assemblies for basis of assembly.
  • less cumbersome copy and paste issues in the CBS
  • Better tax structure to allow certain line items or resources to be taxed in an estimate. Washington state uses a very complex tax structure that can be daunting to cover taxes on mixed projects for first-time users.

  • Helps keep track of scheduling
  • Project history, what we've completed
  • Helps keep track of deadlines and what we need to do to complete.
  • Some of the best features are hard to find
  • It's hard to train people to use.
  • The whole layout needs to be more modern. It feels old and outdated .

  • summarizing project completion and tasks that still need to be done
  • projecting staffing needs
  • organizing schedule/prioritizing tasks
  • forecasting upcoming task "cliffs"
  • The import/export buttons are exactly the opposite of what you would expect. not intuitive and the logos for these should be swapped.
  • The software is hard to train users upon. New users require 3-6 months of use before getting proficient. I think this is because many of the best features are buried in menus, three clicks deep.
  • The claiming exports immediately default partial claim items to the user who claimed previously. You need to update your name every time you update a partial claim line item.
  • There are many add-ins that should just be included with InEight Standard, instead of having to install extras to make the software usable.

  • XL Upload tool is fantastic
  • Bulk upload and editing metadata
  • Fully customisable
  • We would like to be able to workflow documents without them being restrained or maybe have a view that shows restrained and unrestrained as latest/current. We treat our Project Contractor's "As Received" documents as the latest/current whether we've completed our review or not.
  • We'd like users not to be able to reply to the transmittal system generated email address as emails go into unregistered mail
  • Documents - Comments Register - Request to have Default values available for specific fields
  • When we issue reviewed Contractor documents to Teambinder - External Contacts they are required to download the document, download comments (if applicable) and if we've made redline mark ups click on Red Magnifying glass and print document to PDF (and this won't include any comments made with mark up note). They could end up with 3 separate files per document. Also, on the sent transmittal after you select "Download all Transmittal files" button, the "Download All" button only downloads the documents and the "Download Comments" button doesn't include comments made by redline markup. I don't believe this supports the "single source of truth" and could easily lead to confusion. How can I be confident our minor service providers, third parties, government departments etc. will download and use the correct "as returned" version of the document, for example, if it's a drawing we've assigned review code 2 or 3 too they need the drawing and comments to use. TeamBinder document review options consist of:
  • Download: (mark up a hardcopy scan and upload it as an attachment), Redlines: mark up (red-line) the document and make text comments and Text comments: Click the Add/Edit link in the Comments column to add electronic comments to the documents. Teambinder transmittal "Download Comments" should include ALL comments no matter which combination of review options was used. We don't use redlines as we cannot ask our external recipients to produce their own PDF's.

  • InEight allows us to management scope and cost change with the change management functionality.
  • InEight Document provides excellent integration with Outlook which significantly improves user satisfaction.
