Hello all,

What do y'all use for document management / drawing sharing with others in the project team inc client and contractors...? I am specifically in interested in finding out about online products that teams use for collaboration and even a bit of project management....? 

I've asked this question before sometime ago and am wondering if things have since developed... 

Many thanks,

Such a pity that our profession generally uses antiquated-feeling stuff like Constructware and Buzzsaw. I use Basecamp for my freelance gigs, and love it. Clients love it too.

We use Newforma. The interface is a little dated, but it works pretty well and keeps e-mail in a central place while merging duplicates. I'm not sure how expensive it is but I have a feeling it isn't cheap. I think the tipping point came when a state law from a couple years ago required archiving communications for public work.

Correct decision for use online construction software. Use Web based Construction management software

Are we talking about sharing drawing files?  Or are we talking about

managing the construction process?

Submittall exchange is nice, but expensive I think.

There is  also Procore

I'm surprised no one has mentioned plangrid yet. Seems to be popular with contractors.
