Overall Satisfaction with Constructware

It is being used on an infrastructure project in New York City. The use was mandated by New York City Transit Authority and it's being used by all companies working on the project. The business problem of coordination and data access across different companies gets addressed by using Constructware.
  • Provenance. Keeps track of changes and the people/companies who made those changes.
  • Collaboration.
  • Work [is stored] in the cloud.
  • UI can be improved, as shown by improvements made in BIM 360.
  • Only works well with Internet Explorer.
  • Steep Learning Curve due to confusing UI.
  • Saves time.
  • Eases collaboration.
  • Increases accountability.
Better than Unifier:
1. Better UI
2. Everything else is about the same

Bim360 is now the go-to platform for all functions previously provided by Constructware.
Constructware is well suited for many different types of projects in both real estate and infrastructure. However, it is now becoming outdated with the introduction of the BIM 360 platform. I think even Autodesk may plan to slowly stop rolling out subscriptions to Cnstructware since most of its functions are now getting added on to BIM 360.
