Share. It's the Right Thing to Do.
Contacts, projects, items, and files - they're all there and they're all the same when you connect your employees with the ConstructionSuite system. In ConstructionSuite Pro, you can network up to four licensed computers to share information throughout your company. Increase productivity and avoid costly mistakes by centralizing your information in a single shared database.
With a shared database, your entire team stays up-to-date on project changes and important activities.
Networked computers share a single Items Database, so everyone has access to the most recent cost information.
Note: You must purchase an additional license for each installation of ConstructionSuite. The Pro version can accomodate a network of up to 4 licensed computers.
Out of the Office. Into the field.
In the construction industry, mobility is key, and never before has it been so easy to go mobile and stay connected. With multiple choices for optimal mobility, UDA ConstructionSuite has you covered no matter where you're working from.
Laptop and Tablet PC
UDA ProjectSync, available with the purchase of additional licenses, is a powerful utility designed to keep everyone up-to-date on project-related information. With bi-directional synchronization between multiple licenses of ConstructionSuite, you can take your laptop or tablet PC to the jobsite, make changes to project and contact information, and easily update the central shared database when you get back to the office. Starting at only $350 for ConstructionSuite Pro editions, additional licenses offer the best options for ultimate mobility.
PDA or Pocket PC
Mobile Integration is back - bigger and better than before in the new UDA ConstructionSuite 2009. Like in previous versions, you can still create optimized read-only copies of your estimates, schedules, contracts, specifications, and other documents to take with you on your PDA or pocket PC. But with the breakthrough technology of ConstructionNet CRM, you can now synchronize the UDA Integrated Calendar with Microsoft Outlook, so you can view project schedules in the field and manage Activities in Outlook before synchronizing back to UDA ConstructionSuite. Mobile Integration is included with all versions of ConstructionSuite.
Sharing a database is easy with UDA ConstructionSuite. If you have purchased additional licenses or a multi-user version of ConstructionSuite, follow the simple steps below to get connected and start saving time by having all of your employees work from a central shared database.
Note: For this process to work successfully, you need to have either a peer-to-peer network or dedicated server in your office.
Step 1: Set up the primary computer
Decide which computer you would like to designate as the primary database.
On the ConstructionSuite interface on the primary computer, go to Tools > Configuration > User Configuration.
Click the [add new] link in the list to open the User Information window.
Enter a Username and a Password. Verify the password.
Designate an access level: User or Administrator. An administrator can force check-in a file if it is opened by another user.
Enter a First and Last Name for the user and click OK.
Step 2: Share the primary database
Open ConstructionSuite on the licensed computer you would like to connect to the primary database.
On the login screen, enter the Username and Password for the primary database.
Click the Server > button on the right.
Use the drop-down menu to select the primary computer's name from the list and click OK.
The computer is now logged in to the primary database. The name of the primary computer will appear in the top right of the interface under the Server heading.
