Adoddle van Asite is een cloudplatform voor naadloze samenwerking tussen disciplines, van concept tot voltooiing en daar voorbij.
It is compatible with several other platforms such as CAD so it is easy to review submittals as well.
Poor customer support led to several issues going unsolved and work arounds having to be implemented internally.

Cloud-based collaboration platform
Opmerkingen: Features such as AppBuilder or the BIM project portfolio manager optimize the desired results. They are associated with planning and follow-up commands.
Based on the SaaS cloud, Asite allows you to manage BIM project portfolios, develop custom applications, develop your own workflows. It is also possible to work remotely and synchronize with different stations. Integrates HTML, PDF, and other documentation formats
Access to the most advanced functionalities is conditioned by an increase in the financial charge for the premium acquisition.

DDG Review 2022
Opmerkingen: I have used Asite over a number of years now and completed some big projects, as a user/administrator my experience has not been too bad. Certain features that do not give the administrator the opportunity to correct a form and Asite supports refusal to help with this is a frustration and taints the experience a little.
Easy enough to learn and use, sets up commenting periods and records against it. Can set up distribution groups to make things easier with large documenation that needs distributing.
Some functions are better/can be done in classic view, some functions are better/can be done in addodle view, shame these 2 are not more in sync and that you as a user have to be switching between the 2 reguarly. No basket option in addodle view means classic will always need to be used when wanting to compile a download of information from different folders and or producing exported reports off of them. Also would be handy if it was easy to delete documents from time to time from the system rather than having to move them to an obsolete folder or making the documeny inactive. Inability to not be able to change incorrect user reference numbers in application forms such as RFI's & NCR's are frustrating and even more so when Asite support wont help you with thgis or want a fee for doing it.....

Thank you for your review, Darren. We are sorry to hear you had some frustrations, but we really appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. We love hearing from our customers and we're always looking for ways to improve our product. We've passed along your valued concern to our product team.
Love the ease, and accessibility for all levels of users. Lacks admin functions that were on classi.
Opmerkingen: A better learning platform, made training alot easier as everything is a right click away. Saved me a lot of time also, more time to learn new apps on Asite and less time figuring out functions myself.
I like the ease of moving files, copying structures, metadata is my favourite new function. Great for super users like myself that created the projects and sets all permissions. The idea of checkout works well too, combines multiple programs into one. Is easy, simple and multi-functional. The Adoddle Help robot is fabulous, on all of my training sessions to new consultants i tell them about this as works well as it changes depending on where you are in the software and you can have help within seconds.
Least the lack of admin settings, attributes, workflows, purpose of issue etc. Having to change interface back to classic when i am so utterly satisfied with adoddle is inconvenient. Not being able to 'unlink' is extremely annoying, simple reverse functions are lacking. Deactivating works so well for removing, activating incase you made a mistake. The use of linking is used in my day to day document control but not being able to unlink is not as easy, also multi-links to more than once location done with one click would be a great idea. I link files to multi projects and to repeat multiple times is time consuming.
We use Asite for design phase of projects generally and it includes most of the features we need.
Opmerkingen: Provides excellent document control among design team members and provides compliance with PAS1192-2:2013 level 2 BIM standards.
Document control is very good once people are up to speed on the software. The ability to find documents especially on larger projects with numerous participants is very useful to us. Document Audit/ history is very good.
Security on folders is cumbersome - need some means to propagate rights form a parent folder to a sub folder. Audit system is very good but Distribution system could be improved - difficult to get the distributions like we would have on a traditional architects transmittal register where we can cross reference documents by date it was distributed. Can be done is reports but reporting system also needs improving. Forms are good once setup but not intuitive for users unfamiliar with how they work.
A good collaborative software tool for the storage and submission of contractual documentation.
Opmerkingen: Convenient project management tool to communicate, upload and store archived project data.
The software has customised features to administer NEC3 contracts effectively. There's a convenient section for the project contract data which is updated as compensation events are submitted and approved/rejected via the system itself. This makes it very convenient to monitor the financial health of a project. It also has built-in sections to submit and respond to requests for information, early warnings and general communications that need to be tracked and archived. Very convenient tool to manage projects effectively.
The user interface and mobile app are horrendously poor experience in this day and age. Although we only use the project forms element, the website is very slow and dated. Pages and documents/attachments are not intuitive to navigate and download. Could be much much better with a clear redesign. Up time has been an issue recently too, many server timeouts although support have been good at responding with the typical 'just wait please'.
Clunky and non intuitive
Easy login and relatively good markup tools. Ability to set up dialogue in application and follow up on changes.
Search facility is very poor and relies too much on the user directing it to the location. Front end is very unhelpful and does not easily allow full visibility of project tasks outstanding. Classic view is much better, however administrators and the company clearly have an agenda to promote Adoddle interface as the system defaults to this on login. Drawing comparison tools are not as slick as other packages and dialogue on markup tools is not very versatile. Running discussions on drawings can be frustrating as it doesn't have a natural conversation feel due to being difficult to view all comments and responses at the same time. Used it on and off for the last nine years and never seems to get any easier to use compared with other software tools.
This is one of the better collaboration software systems out there but still lacks functionality.
Opmerkingen: Collaboration is marginally better than email as the files are all in one place.
Ease of use and availability of files to all user when uploaded. Intuitive interface for the most parts.
This software still has a long way to go to be good as there are several major functionality problems, noted as follows. Searching is different to expected and needs to get used to and should be improved to be more user friendly. Folder displays sub folders content which is rather confusing and not like any other software such as windows explorer and there should be a toggle to turn this "feature" on and off. Uploading files is complex and there is no intelligence in the software so all data has to be input manually. A large amount of the uploading could be automated from file names using a input mask or similar which would automate uploading for ease. The file viewing system is total rubbish and several users in my practice could not get it to work at all and it crashed a lot of the time so we had to resort to downloading all the time.
Has potential, but frustrating
Opmerkingen: Not so many. The ability to view drawings within the browser rather than using specialist software is the only thing I've found to be a positive.
As a cloud store for project information such as drawings, it allows a sensible folder structure and easy searching, the key benefit is the ability to view drawings/models using the built-in viewer without needing specialist software.
It's not intuitive, the project forms and workflows are clunky and hard to navigate. Too many notifications. I suspect this product can probably do more and be better than I have experienced, but that depends on the skills and experience of the administrators. I will be sticking with our in-house designed and customised sharepoint sites for future projects.
Opmerkingen: file share is useful
Folder structures work well, I can drill down to narrow my search should I require. in addition I can easily download
slow, clunky, but mostly the screen that tells you there are no forms to view in a folder-it doesn't tell you if there really isn't any forms or if your profile doesn't have access
Asite is a very 'clunky' system to use. Not intuitional set up, with too many features.
Opmerkingen: In comparison to other systems I have used (Aconex, Encompass, 4Projects) Asite does not come up as reliable software, due to number of errors and outages occurring. 2 critical outages only this year.
Good search engine and very well trained support desk. Sadly I have no more positives to fill in 100 characters count
System frequently crashes. The highest critocal failure rate of all systems I worked with Files and communications disappear from the register No feature allowing tracing contractual responses to document submissions Very complicated and not user friendly reporting tool Too many hidden functions but not easy to find Not being able to associate documents together - such as document and comments sheet Large number of errors Bulk upload fiddly Problems with the control over auto numbering No capacity to correct errors Actions often confusing
Mostly positive experience
Opmerkingen: collective organisation of large project teams is visible to all
fantastic depository for files , well structured and easy to navigate It's nice to have files kept in a central place; and even though you can easily get separate document management solutions for your business, having that central location be your project management system, just makes sense. Issue Tracking If issue tracking features are an important selling point for you, you should know that Adoddle allows users to resolve issues through multiple workflows. This means that hiccups in your new product development project can be handled differently than bugs in your latest IT implementation.
Gantt charts don't come to mind when you think of things you'd miss if you didn't have them. However, it's tough to see project management software like Adoddle that handles aspects of traditional project management, but leaves out this important tool.
I have been using Asite addodle for 2 and a half years as part of my job role.
Customer support is always eager to resolve my queries and the responses I get are mostly satisfactory leading to the resolution of issues.
Functionality as it is counter intuitive, complicated and not user friendly. Also the certain pages keep refreshing while I am looking for something making things hard to find thus wasting time.
All file are systhematic
Opmerkingen: The benefits is flies are secure, no worries for copyrigth
All file are send to other companies are secured. No issues has been encountered in our daily routine communication with other company.
The most least i like is the zooming in and out. You can not used the mouse (scrolling to enlarge) instead used the plus and minus zooming.
A fairly simple web based solution
Intuitively easy to use. Backed up by a powerful search engine that made locating different document versions straight forward.
Although I understand why watermarking is used it did become a nuisance in some cases, making some documents and drawings difficult to read
Nice and easy to use!!
The format, it's simple and intuitive!! I have used the software for the last 2 years and it really works. Good presentation, easy to use, it's functional. In a few words it's Nice and Easy to use.
Overall happy, customer service is mostly very good and pleasant.
Document management is really good, ability to create our own forms is great. We do like the customization in having what we want o our forms.
When creating forms we are stuck using InfoPath 2013 which isnt great, we're still waiting for the HTML form builder to see how far we can go with it.
It is the worst download site I have ever used
There is absolutely nothing positive I can find about this site. There is not one single thing about it which, even remotely, strikes me as a good idea. It needs a complete rethink from the end users point of view, not the programmers ego.
The use has clearly been designed by a geek & is probably brilliant in their eyes. However, as an end user I don't have the time to spend mucking about trying to get logged in or password verified just to get some drawings & a specification. It is not rocket science & does not need a level of security far in excess of the FBI. It is not well thought out, it is over complex & unintuitive
Very good platform to use while finding drawings
Storage capabilities and amount of information you can upload and download from ASite. the old format is very easy to use, no problems for a beginner navigating around asite to find drawings and information
The new format doesn't seem to search the criteria properly. if the word is not found it will pull up all the drawings in the file and this takes some time to load up
Just started to use but looking forward to implementing it fully
Opmerkingen: Hopefully will help to make my day more efficient
Easy to use interface still trying to find my way around the system, but hopefully once it comes in fully will be able to implement into my daily tasks more.
As a QS used to using DWF as a way of viewing drawings so that we are able to measure, as opposed to PDF that we can only view
A Review of Adoddle.
Opmerkingen: Dashboards are the name of the game for Adoddle. The helpful gauge system can assist employees in decisions regarding cost analysis as well as relevant project information and metadata. The integration of documentation with useful information on various projects is phenomenal.
Asite Adoddle is great because the cloud-based project management helps to offer fixes for kinks in employee communication, management of documentation, cost/benefit analysis of potential projects, portfolio analysis, and supply chain tweaks and updates within a suite. Bottlenecks are increasingly limited and Adoddle is perfect as far as providing efficiency to various segments in construction contracting; home builders, heavy-highway, utility...all the way "up" to skyscraper projects.
The search function is in need of some tweaking. Adoddle could benefit in an update because it is reliant on the user influencing the actual end location, as opposed to a detailed search being performed. Though, Asite staff is helpful and available for contact if issues arise.
It is intuitive compared to other document management platforms. Also looks relatively modern whereas other platforms have dated appearances given that they've been added to over a number of years.
The zoom slider bar on the PDF viewer isn't a good idea, a plus and minus would be far better. Also the PDF viewer is quite slow and laggy.
Clear contract management audit trail for processing compensation events and changes to target costs.
Not intuitive making it difficult to find the information I need. Too complicated to set up the correct security/access to information leading to security breaches. Internet based systems are slow to access from my usual office
A very good product with too many "hidden" features.
Opmerkingen: read the report!
Very high potential. There are a lot of good features Local support has been good Archiving and retrieval is very useful
The "BASIC" system and setup is far too complicated thereby causing new users to shy away from it. We have had it for 2 years in a company of 100 people and still only about 3, maybe 5 people use it!!! I have had to withdraw from using it because no one else in the company uses it of even understands how to use it. There are too many features which are only accessible via hidden or complicated menu. Linking/sharing information with outside professions is too complicated. (ie Dropbox is far simpler) Basic Training is poor.
I use the software as a client. The tool offers all functions required to administer contracts
The software is easy to use with little or no training - the interface is very intuitive to navigate to find what you are looking for.
Abilities to batch approve drawings. This is probably more associated with upload procedures/ behaviours and possibly could be resolved through additional training.
