Overall Satisfaction with Bentley ProjectWise

My whole organization uses Bentley ProjectWise. It helps us archive files or create different versions of the same file. Anyone can access any file unless they are locked or blocked. The software is good for helping us organize our projects by discipline and the audit trail gives us a restore point if someone accidentally makes a change they shouldn't have.
  • organize projects
  • create restore points/audit trail
  • locking files and not providing access to certain users
  • collaborative files
  • many users cannot be in the same file at the same time
  • files are not automatically freed upon closure
  • copying files to another ProjectWise folder is complicated. There is an option to copy, another to copy to, etc.
  • It has saved us time in archiving and versioning documents
  • It has saved us effort in backing up files and restoring them when mistakes are made
  • It has had an overall positive impact on our bottom line by helping with file sharing and collaboration
I think ProjectWise is better for technical users than Dropbox, one drive, or SharePoint. It is less intuitive than any of the others though. It is better for restoring files and creating an audit trail than any of the other programs. It is better for sharing large files in a short period of time than SharePoint or one drive. It is also better for larger teams and larger projects than SharePoint or Dropbox.

Do you think Bentley ProjectWise delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Bentley ProjectWise again?


ProjectWise is good for really large projects with many team members. I would not recommend it for small projects or those with a small team of people working on them. It is best for technical people and those who plan to use it daily. There are better FTP options out there if you just want to use them for file sharing.
