Comments: The software has helped us to control change order costs, allowed us to become more efficient in our construction inspections, and streamlined our invoice review process.

Pros: This software tracks all of the pay items on my construction contract in real time, allowing me to know exactly how much of any item has been placed on the project, where it is located on the project, who inspected the components of that item, which materials were incorporated in that item, and tells me how much I owe the contractor at any given point in time. The software integrates my bid results, manages my contract quantities, creates and incorporates change orders and invoices. The ability to run reports on exactly what work has been done on a monthly basis has allowed me to better control the invoices that I receive from the contractor.

Cons: As the software is very robust, there is a learning curve to mastering how the individual items, materials, and materials approvals interact.

Comments: I highly recommend the use of APPIA.

Pros: Use of APPIA for bidding allows bidders to change their bids litterally up to the last minute from their office. Bids are transmitted electronically and all math is performed by APPIA. APPIA analyses the bids and shows the amount/percentage each bid item is above/below the estimate or the low bid in a matter of seconds. Also, any bid documents that are required are highlighted and the bid won't be accepted until all did doc's are loaded. The daily logs that are required by the inspectors must list any of the bid items that were constructed that day and the daily has to be approved by a specified manager. At the end of the month, APPIA scans the approved dailies for that month and provides a basis of invoice, which has greatly reduced haggle time with Contractors; and provided very good information on many people were working that day, what machines were used, etc for time delay calculations, etc. We also use it for estimating from our own data and the local FDOT District offices.

Cons: Once bid tab numbers have been used on a project, all projects must use those same numbers for historical purposes. This is an unforeseen constraint and we are attempting to solidify out bid tab. If an inspector hasn't forwarded his dail log for approval, there is no way to approve it in his absence for billing purposes. Also, we fitted our inspectors with laptops to use in their pick-ups so that the dailies could be filled out in the field, rather than transcribed later from notes. So there were additional, rather minor, costs involved. In my opinion, these are relatively small items that don't in any way over shadow what this application has done for us.
