Well Researched Collaboration Software
Kommentare: I use Onware on a daily basis to perform contract administration on large and small construction projects. It has given me the power to move information quickly, track everything, and keep all the project participants current with all the information in one spot accessible to everyone. This software has helped prevent me from being the bottleneck for information on my projects. There is a large construction project management component to this software as well that was developed with a subsidiary of Turner Construction.
Excellent Customer Support
Excellent tracking and information management
Access everything everywhere through the cloud
Automatic email notifications that are nearly infinite in their configuration
Third party tracking ends arguments over timing of submittals and RFI responses
Nachteile: There are some features in the bidding and negotiation portion that are not developed. They are working on this and it should be resolved in the then version.

We have been users of this software for the past 5 years, its ease of use is it's key selling point
Kommentare: The use of this software package eliminates duplication of parallel document tracking that previously occurred with conventional documentation processing. This tracking process is now updated in real time as a function of the database software.
Vorteile: We utilize and access this software during Construction Progress Meetings from applicable sites. Having the software accessible with real time updates and universal web access through site infrastructure is invaluable.
Nachteile: I find it inconvienient to not be able to see/print all the linked documents, without having to drill down into the various documents and print hard copies or create a compiled PDF. We have identified this shortcoming to the software in the past, and were advised that this function would be added in future updates. Hopefully, the next update will include this requested function.

Overall my experience is good.
Vorteile: Documents stored in one location and tracking of each document is barred none the best reason for Onware. The favorites buttons are useful. Customizing our own forms is amazing! Although this doesn't pertain to software, Onware help support is excellent.
Nachteile: Main menu in v9, in my opinion, is not helpful anymore, I find it confusing. I preferred the previous straightforward main menu that captured my 'to do list'. I dislike the viewer screen and not having the capability to copy text from a previously issued document. New users have a difficult time setting up their account and I'm not familiar with the steps they require to go through therefore I cannot assist them. Many non-internal Onware users are just waiting for an excuse not to use Onware.

A software program that many Engineers and Architects dislike
Kommentare: There are many more features within this program that my colleagues, consultants (Engineers of many disciplines) do not like that there is no room to express it's pitfall. This program was created by those I believe working at the University of Alberta, who in my opinion do not have the full depth of the contract administration process. The program they have created is a small window of what they understand in the construction and architectural industry.
Vorteile: That it is a cloud-based program that you can log in to online.
The linked documents is an annoying features in that if you pdf a document such as a quote or change order, it shows up on the document as "attachments" which are not attached to the pdf document. The link is very sensitive, if you hover near the link a new window opens up.
RFI: If you are a contract administrator, sometimes you are not always notified via email when a consultant has responded. But before that, the notification does not indicate if the RFI has been sent to the consultant for review or not. The worst is if you pdf the entire RFI with the responses for your files, it can be an unneccsarily 2+ pages long because of poor formatting features from the developer. This features applies to shop drawings as well.
Change Notices: has field boxes to write out in to generate forms. However this is not always a good idea as contract administrators have our forms with the legal description and fine print. So in turn we have to attach our own forms on top of copy and pasting the verbiage in the field boxes. This creates double the work and when all pdf'd together, creates more paperwork for the contractor and client.
Email notifications: serve little information as to what the notification is in regards to.
Submittals: The use of the word "Conforms as Noted" is not a widely used term in the construction industry. Typically it is Reviewed as Noted, Reviewed, Revise and Resubmit, Rejected, Not Reviewed, Information only, Records only - most of these terms are not used.

I find the system useful and easy to find stuff when the user submits it properly
Vorteile: Keeps everything under one roof. Can send large files in one issuances compared to through email. Works best if contractors use it as well.
Nachteile: Contractors are not willing to change from their system to ours. Makes us have to enter the things we receive from them as they won't do it. When returning submittals back when they are revise and resubmit, we keep them open to keep a record of upcoming revisions we should be getting. Although it just says open in Onware and counts against us as not done yet even though we are waiting on a revision from the contractor. A button for return and aviating a revision would be nice as we only have issue or return.
