My experience to date with dashpivot has been a really positive one, as somebody who is not a real lover of technology I was impressed by how easy and user friendly the software was. This has resulted in us managing to continue to come up with new uses for the software that we would not have thought of when we originally brought dashpivot on board. It has allowed us to have faster and better access to records onsite, which would have once been created hard copy and manually scanned and saved to a server, and has allowed us to better collaborate with our clients on projects.
The best feature of the Dashpivot software is how user friendly it is. You don't need to spend time or money on IT consultants or tech support to establish and later modify/set up the software to meet your needs. Creating your own forms/templates is very simple meaning that it is relatively easy to transfer a paper system across to a digital format/database. Because it is so easy to generate new forms it also means that it is easy to continue to grow your systems as you find new ways to utilise the dashpivot functions or new functions become available.
Dashpivot is still relatively early in its development which means that there is still a lot of potential in the software that is yet to be realised. However, the team team at dashpivot is always open to hearing your ideas on possible functionality improvements and trying to implement those where possible.
Generally I only use Dashpivot for storing photos of on site activities and for daily diaries. From an engineering perspective the ability to digitally document this information is very useful. As you are already aware Engineers are quite time poor, so the usefulness of Dashpivot is directly related to the time spent entering data into it.
It is easy to use and very helpful for tracking site activities and storing photos. The iPhone app makes it a perfect tool for an Engineer working on site to upload photos of day-to-day tasks.
When viewing a photo, it would be good to add a swiping functionality in order to more easily move between photos - especially when in full screen mode. Ability to rotate 90 degrees when in full screen mode would also be a good addition.
For the daily diaries i find myself generally typing everything into the comments box as opposed to manually selecting the drop down lists for things like labour, deliveries and plant/equipment on site as it is much quicker and easier to modify. Although if there was a timesheet functionality that was directly linked to the input fields in the daily diaries then we would be encouraged to manually enter it. I.e. The name of each labourer and the hours they do each day could be entered by the foreman into the daily diary. At the end of the month you could generate a timesheet template, select the labourers name, and it would display every day that labourer worked and the hours he did.
Outstanding. Dashpivot has grown its capabilities so fast since our first use under two years ago.
Pictures, tags, filters, sorting, etc is available for ease searching
It is very user friendly and personnel from all levels of the organisation are able to see what has been uploaded to the cloud and also do their own inputs.
Initially our project started to use it for progress pictures of the project in different areas, however due to its properties we have expanded our use to digital forms minimizing paperwork and streamline processes.
Form or pictures are able to be reviewed immediately by multiple users in the organisation.
One more good feature is that the software is available on PC web site base or through apps in mobile devices so pictures and forms can be uploaded or edited in any device.
No Cons, always improving so any suggestion has been always taken in consideration.
- Dashpivot has changed the way our business operates. Have only received positive comments from both our office and site based staff. Overall it is a superb product and highly recommended.
- User friendly web and mobile interface
- The photo and video option is excellent. Media is uploaded and updated almost instantaneously. Can add photo tags and descriptions which make searching much easier.
- GPS option on photos is great when working on a large road project.
- Drag and drop option on templates makes it simply to create forms and workflows.
- The analytics are extremely valuable to our business
- The formatting on some forms could be improved.
- The software is developing at a rate of knots and even though the updates are outstanding, you need to spend the time learning what the changes are.
The Dashpivot team has been very proactive in providing support, gathering feedback and communicating the upcoming feature improvements in an open environment.
We look forward to a long-term future with the Dashpivot team
The implementation of Dashpivot has shown immediate benefit and return of investment. Key features include:
- The ability for all of the project team to capture and share information for any form in an instant from any device;
- The sharing and capture of the site activities via the photos page and the site diary;
- The quick setup of the program and each user;
- The ease of use of the software with each user quickly learning and adding in content;
- Value for money
- The communication not only within the project team but also to the construction management and support teams.
We prefer the old name - Construction Cloud. We also look forward to the integration with our other software systems over time.
Dashpivot has been a great asset in allowing us to organise and manage both site diaries and photographs as well as providing the ability to tag them for easy reference where required. It has also made the process of creating plant requisition forms much easier by providing a ready made register and giving a unified template for all subcontractors and suppliers.
- Easy to use and understand
- Good options for saving and storing both photos and text diaries for site activities
- Ability to tag photographs for easy reference
- Mobile compatibility
- Flexible form templates to record multiple aspects of site works
- Good help and support system if required
N/A can think of no negative features of the software
Mainly due to developers constantly updating it based of comments from users
Dash pivot is great, it is friendly and easy to use software and you do not need to be a computer wiz to get the most out of it.
That you can see what other people are doing on the home page other people might be doing something that relates to you but you may have forgotten about
You can create a template that will suit your needs and then incorporate it into the analytics.
Tagging of photo's for task and place and that the photo will show you where it was taken on google maps
The exporting of the excel andPDF Docs for sending to contractors.
Easy to contact for support
Being able to open one form on multiple devices and lose the data from the form you filled out on the previous devices.
You can't see who took a photo on the mobile app.
Some of the settings on the computer are not the same on the app ( mainly date created and subject date )
I have one many arguments with subcontractors trying to charge variations as I have time stamped proof of what was done on a given day & time stamped photos to back it up.
I Have used it to prove variations to clients & have attached video evidence of latent conditions
Really saves time when processing staff hours & claims
Love the fact I can also use it in the field, on I phone
It's great not having to use paper that can go missing or be unclear.
Dash pivot is quite easy to use. Even better when it's set up. It saves a lot of time & helps with invoicing as well, the analytics feature is great for quickly confirming hours on every trade. I also love the fact I can be out in the field & log photos in real time, it saves arguments with both clients & subcontractors. The safety of knowing that all my data is backed up is great also.
Not much, if anything I'd say the date should auto populate on the PC template.
Great! I would highly recommend this application to anyone in the construction industry. It has streamlined our business and made communication in our team a lot more fluid and transparent.
The ease of use is a huge asset to our business. Since the introduction of Dashpivot to our construction team, the visibility and communication through photos and online forms has increased exponentially. The whole team has live updates of works being completed in real time and with exact locations.
The platform has also made the process of prestarts, permits and Purchase Orders a lot more streamlined. No more needing to physically take a piece of paper around to numerous different parties for sign off, with this platform the nominated party get's informed automatically.
Being able to link with other app, I know most applications cannot do this either.
It has been excellent. We have been able to digitise our HSEQ and commercial processes and engage with our clients and partners on the platform. It has improved the efficiency of our project delivery and allows our engineers to get back to doing what they should be doing.
Its adaptability and the ease with which we were able to roll it across our business. The form builder is excellent and the analytics provide for real time and informed management review.
We are looking to expand the applications of Dashpivot into more areas of our business but it is not quite there just yet. We are working with Sitemate however to address this.
DashPivot works very well. It simply does what it promises.
The ability to add forms and include all site personnel to work on it from the supervisors to the PM is great.
>The ability to use it on site and the app is able to pick up GPS co-ordinates.
>Breaking work areas down and being able to see tags for the photos taken.
Depending on the speed of the mobile network - sometimes it can be too slow or laggy but most of the time the app works just fine.
Our business has effectively eliminated paper documents for almost all our processes. We have freed up hours spent previously on paperwork to concentrate on more important tasks.
The form creation is so versitile and customisable that there were few processes that couldn't be transferred to Dashpivot.
Customisable forms and workflows
Simple to create and change forms
Easy collaboration with teammates
Good analytics for our purposes
Usable mobile version
When creating PDF/printed copies of files the formatting and layout can be a little confusing compared to viewing it online.
- Dashpivot has improved the pothole tracking by making the captured data accessible for use on the ground when it is needed
- Has changed the way that the Site Diary is being captured and is in the process of streamlining the recording and tracking of daily costs and production rates
- User friendly and flexible interface lets you customize forms for your own uses and to align with existing systems
- Easy to learn and pick up on. Intuitive user face
- App was initially slow and clunky to use. Has since been updated
- Still some functionalities that are only available on the web platform
Dashpivot has been been great with keeping our on-site day to day operations organised. It also allows for easy accessibility to that information in a short amount of time, which anyone can access at any given time. The tutorial videos and articles have been the key factor to my team's ability to use this software effectively. Will definitely be recommending Dashpivot to others.
The simplicity of Dashpivot is one of the biggest advantages to oragnise your company's day to day operations. It is extremely easy for anyone to jump on and start using right away, and if you have trouble with anything, the customer service/video tutorials will help you in any situation.
Overall with my experience with the free trial, the only complaint is that I was limited to the number of templates. However, that issue will be solved once I purchase the full version.
We are improving our quality management more effectively - whilst saving time in the process - and this improves our project management outcomes.
Ease of use, broad application, live information and review, effective databasing, provides improvements in efficiency, great customer service with a team constantly improving the software.
Still a young software/system, but it exceeds our expectations and any suggestions for improvement are addressed quickly by the development team.
Dashpivot makes tracking daily site progress easily collaborative and efficient. It has made the tracking of images easy, being able to input information straight from your phone with only a few clicks. Overall my experience has been very positive and I would recommend to my colleagues.
- Extremely user friendly
- Build-able and dynamic templates
- Great customer support and constant communication
- Ability to upload bulk photos from mobile and have them sorted into respective days automatically
- Use of tags to track specific progress
- Able to see edits made to templates
- Having images take up 1 x A4 page when downloaded as pdf
- Having to regularly save to allow co-workers to add information or risk superseding their input
- Also could be handy to have an option to 'flag' certain images as they are taken with mobile e.g. if there was a pic of an enviro issue among a whole range of images, being able to easily identify and action.
Dashpivot provides our core business the ability to go paperless and add stream lined service that is based onsite. All documents and procedures in one place that every level of management can have visibilty across each discipline. User friendly and the team is very helpful
The ability to Taylor bespoke documentation to our organisation and for the onsite staff to be able to access that documentation in real time
Nothing really is or was an issue for the dash pivot team. Slow to load in certain situations would be my only concern
I have been able to keep accurate diary's and have been able to customize them for each sub project , the analytics have also come in handy tracking progress.
Its ease of use, you don't have to be a wiz on any IT level
There is not a part of dashpivot that I dislike the few issues I have had have been resolved quickly by the D/P team
Very easy to use with great capabilities. Has been a great asset to the business.
- Ease of use
- the benefits it has brought to the business
- Support from the team when in need
- Very friendly staff
None to mention at this time. Software has accommodated to all our needs with good execution.
Dashpivot has saved time for our team by allowing forms to be completed in the field and it automatically populates a register. Dashpivot templates have eliminated the need for paper forms which is a sustainable outcome. Dashpivot makes it easy to recall data and photos which is useful during audits.
It's flexible to our needs and can be used to replace hard copy forms and registers. It's been helpful for storing and recalling photos.
Dashpivot has continued to improve over the last year so when we've identified that something is lacking we have made suggestions and most ideas have been taken on board.
My overall experience has been very positive, the customer support has been very active in answering my questions and queries. My use on site when using the software has also been positive and effective
I love the simplistic nature
The user interface is engaging
Customer support is fantastic and hands on
Not as many features on the mobiel platform of dashpivot in comparison to the web
Using to keep track of Purchase Order requests. Excellent tool as quotes and PO details all on one screen. Also, permits PO requestor to see status of PO.
Easy to access and use. Takes only a few clicks to navigate between screens.
Have yet to have a negative experience. Perhaps a pop up telling me that I appear to have a problem logging on, when I am not having any issues.
Highly recommended to others
- Easy to use
- Great promt support from Dashpivot team
- Easy to customise - tailor to need
- Versatile tool for construction projects
- Quick -> no lags or delays when loading/downloading
- Too much visibility as the 'team' grows - no selective privacy function
- Mobile App not as good as Web version
Very convenient to have a cloud space to store work pictures on the go.
Very easy to use
Mobile app works great
Should have recognising feature, instead of copy and pasting.
Excellent. It is a program that everyone can use.
Ease of use, it is very user friendly and structured in a logical manner. Uploading documents and supporting photos is very simple and not time consuming. It is a good way of keeping records and making them super easy to find, based upon who created them and what date.
Nothing to be honest. It is a good program to be implemented on a big project such as NorthConnex for records.
