Competitors & Alternatives

Two major competitors of Plus Series software are Aconex Construction Management Software and Project DocControl Construction Management Software. Compared to Plus Series, Aconex only offers the modules of project management, estimating and integration. The features that it offers under these modules are also less than those offered by Plus Series.

The project management module of Aconex does not offer the features of change orders, daily log and punch lists, all of which are available on Plus Series. Additionally, Aconex only integrates with Microsoft Excel.

The other competitor, Project DocControl, offers only two modules. These modules are project management and integration. Unlike Plus Series, the deployment model of DocControl is not online but “on premise”. It is generally suitable for projects with budget less than $10 million.

The features offered under the project management and integration modules of both systems are similar. However, other modules offered by Plus Series are not available on DocControl software.
