UDA Envoy - Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does it work? What does it do?
    Envoy automatically pairs with ConstructionSuite on your primary computer, moves the database and license to Envoy, and allows you to work anywhere by simply connecting Envoy to a secondary computer (laptop, home computer, other office computers, etc.).
  • How many computers can I install Envoy on?
    After pairing with ConstructionSuite on your primary computer, Envoy can be used with an unlimited number of different secondary computers.
  • Will Envoy work with multiple licenses of ConstructionSuite?
    Envoy is designed to pair with a single computer and then offer seamless portability by simply connecting Envoy to a secondary computer.
  • How is Envoy 2.0 different from the original Envoy?
    Envoy 2.0 features enhanced UDA Portable Database Technology 2.0 which offers significantly increased database stability, faster access times for ConstructionSuite and project files, improved reliability, and better safeguards for use with laptops and portable devices.
  • How do I upgrade to Envoy 2.0 OS?
    The new Envoy 2.0 OS is included as a free upgrade for Envoy users with the latest version of ConstructionSuite. Envoy users with an earlier version of ConstructionSuite who would like the added benefits of Envoy 2.0 can upgrade to the latest version of ConstructionSuite.
  • Does Envoy require any wireless or web access to function?
    No. Envoy does not need wireless or web access to function.
  • How do I transfer information between computers?
    Envoy contains all of your data, and allows you to access all of your information from any secondary computer that it is connected to.
  • Do I need ConstructionSuite installed on the secondary computer(s) to use Envoy?
    Upon connecting the device to a secondary computer for the first time, Envoy will automatically install ConstructionSuite. The only application requirements are Microsoft Office and QuickBooks (if Quickbooks Integration is required on the secondary computer.)
  • How many projects can Envoy hold?
    Depending on the complexity of a typical project, an 8GB Envoy can hold between 150 - 250 projects (2000 estimates, 4000 schedules, or 20000 documents), a 16 GB Envoy can hold 300 - 500+ projects.
  • Is Envoy just a copy of your Database?

  • How many primary computers can be paired to Envoy?
    Envoy is designed to pair with only one primary computer at a time, but can be used on an unlimited number of secondary computers.
  • How Secure is my data on Envoy?
    Envoy features solid-state memory with no internal moving parts and will typically retain data for approximately 10 years. Additionally, all data on Envoy features the same password protection you have instituted for ConstructionSuite.
  • Do I need Microsoft Office and/or QuickBooks on the secondary computer(s)?
    Both primary and secondary computers require Microsoft Office and/or QuickBooks (if QuickBooks Integration is required).

    After Envoy is paired with a primary computer, Envoy must be attached for the computer to run ConstructionSuite.
