A firm I worked for 4 years ago (120 employees) used Sema4 www.sema4.com with apparently much success.

I'm not sure how the software has evolved since, however.

: are you looking for "scheduling" software or "job cost accounting" software ?

Sema4 was acquired a while back by Deltek Systems ... I doubt that Deltek will continue to support Sema4 for very long.

If you are looking for job cost accounting and financial management software, I recommend that you take a look at Deltek Vision.

and ... I can't imagine why you would want to undertake a custom programming effort ... that's a massive and expensive undertaking and will have no end of support issues.

I'm looking for total management software
Document versioning, CAD file review (review dwg with a tablet pc, then the new layer with remarks is automatically put into Autocad), Accounting related to project, Correspondances oriented around projects, Scheduling oriented around projects plus actions possible, to do lists, time tracking, file archiving, scheduled printing etc.etc.

good luck ... let us know what you find

several larger gc's use constructware. it provides everything you are looking for (except a built it scheduling function). I find the document control via their file director to be a fantastic tool. We use it for extensive MEP coordination exercises and I think it would work well for architects as well.

For design team co-ordination and one site works we use thrid party software administerted by external specialists. The contractor or the client pays on a project by project basis. Large projects only.

What makes you say that? Can you be specific? I've been looking for something for awhile, too.

Im not sure, it just seems too general and doesnt have many specifically architectural document managament features, review etc.

This one looks hot although i'm not sure how well it's integrated with windows apps, but it looks like it makes good use of OS X

Hello friends,

Project management software is a term covering many types of software, including estimation and planning, scheduling, cost control and budget management, resource allocation, collaboration software, communication, quality management and documentation or administration systems, which are used to deal with the complexity of large projects.

Best regards

Most project management software sucks. This one doesn't: http://liquidplanner.com

Newforma.

Newforma isn't project management software. It's document and file management software. There's a big difference between those things, and if you try to use Newforma as a PM/PPM tool it won't work (I've been using Newforma for almost 10 years now).

My bad... I was responding to the criteria in Adelz posts, which Newforma handles well.

Have you tried Paypanther.com or Zoho? They are great CRM software for managing architecture projects!

Anyone tried Basestone? basestone.io More of a mark up and review tool. Also does anyone use Slack and Trello for project management?
