About Project DocControl

Based in Tampa, Florida, Project DocControl was founded in 1994 and specializes solely in the creation, development, and implementation of its project and document management software. Staffed by a small team of architecture, engineering, and construction technology professionals, Project DocControl has hundreds of clients in the United States and Canada with an annual retention rate of more than 90 percent over the last five years.

Made by subcontractors for subcontractors, Project DocControl project document management software allows users to create, manage, and track documents across all sorts of projects in one easy-to-use application. Since project information is securely stored in one centralized database, the document tracking software enables users to maintain a clear audit trail for improved productivity, reduced expenses, reduced risk and potential associated legal costs, and a more professional company image. Project DocControl clients can track requests for information (RFIs), submissions, change orders, emails, correspondence, pay applications and more. An executive dashboard function gives managers a top-down, visual overview of risks and opportunities company-wide by providing graphs and charts with prioritized items or occurrences featured. A unique application by Project DocControl allows phone conversations to be tracked and summarized so important issues can be logged. An add-in for Microsoft Outlook enables seamless integration with your company email system. Customizable templates allow the standardization of documents across your organization.

What do you like best about this product?

All the info in the same place is nice but a lot of work to get it there. Everything work (kind of) but it’s either very basic or very cumbersome to use.

What could be improved about this product?

Installation (for us at least) is a matter of copying folders and files from one place to another – very cumbersome.
So much that seems outdated. The layout (although customizable) is not very appealing.
A lot of unnecessry clicking seems to be required to do basic tasks:
– Like having to open Change Orders to check/uncheck the “Critical” checkbox
– Also, we need to delete and recreate calendar tasks, instead of just being able to drag to a new day
– The whole interface (menus, info windows, etc) looks and feels dated, like it’s coded in an old (non-drag and drop) programming language.
Reports
– The excel plugin could do with some Options like ability to turn on/off the Diaglog box to save every single email you send to PDC…maybe a bit smarter wherby it could look for specific words in an email and Autosave to PDC.
– Huge menu ribbon seems unnecessary on an already cluttered screen. Each set of menu items could easily fit on one line. Instead it’s 3 lines deep with all items clumped together on the left and tons of space to the right of each….taking up valuable screen real-estate.

Just a few of many issues

What was your main concern about buying this software?

My employer bought it…not me. Me and my workmates are kinda frustrated with it at times. It should work a lot better tan it does for a subscription product.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

It’s creates a little more work than should be neccesary. I’d recommend you try other products before you buy this one. Remember that a lot of your tasks will be repetitive, so the less clicking required for each one the better. Project DocControl fails in this areas.

How likely would you be to recommend this software to a friend or colleague?

2/10
