An amazing product and team!

Its been an excellent experience to date. I highly recommend their product.

Pros

A key requirement from our Project Management software was that it would allow for all functions to be undertaken in the one platform as opposed to using multiple platforms to achieve the same end result. The key benefit of this being efficiency and accuracy. I undertook considerable research to find the best software that would allow an 'all encompassing' Project Management Solution for our business, from quotation to completion. After shortlisting other software and undertaking trials, it didn't take long to see that Orbis was the correct decision. It had a lot of features and modules that are all linked within the platform software and provides a 'near complete' solution. Whilst it did not have all of the features that we required initially, the development team at Orbis have been great in accommodating upgrades and new functions that allow for a continued improvement to our business operation. They are a great team with a great product, a winning combination.

Cons

As it touched on briefly above, the software is a 'near complete' solution. This is only the case as it is continually being developed/improved. The ongoing development is in fact a pro though i have raised this in the con section as it is an acknowledgment that whilst the product is already great, it will be even greater as development continues. The development team listens to the feedback provided and either offers a current solution that may exist in the software or provides an insight into what features can be added to achieve a complete solution. A perfect example of this is that we schedule tasks to up to 20 staff currently each day. When we committed to using Orbis a function did not exist within the software. The team at Nexvia listened to our requirement and have since developed a Resource Scheduling module that now allows us to complete this task within Orbis. I estimate that Orbis currently meets 90%-95% of a 'complete' Project Management solution and with continued development this is moving closer to 100% each week. Its noted that most other software systems that were trialed only achieved up to approx. 60% of a complete solution.

Orbis streamlines the administrative tasks of project management into an easy to use web browser.

Orbis allows you to move through the monotony of administrative tasks at a breeze. Creating a tender is a simple data entry task. A scope of works is generated and automatically generated templates mean easy and simple tender submission document preparation.

This is seamlessly shifted to a project staging area, following a reassuring, easy point and click approval process. From the project management area you can check and agree negotiated budgets that have come from tender, raise your purchase orders with ease, attach quotations received to each tender budget allowance and track live job costs. There are other management features including a platform to produce a program of works, a document control center where you can upload all project related documents, as well as automatically generating a drawing register as you upload plans. Variations and Request for information can be generated online and issued to your clients or contractors as simply as ordering a fast food take away from your tablet.

Site records can be directly inputted, from site register, health and safety audits, photos and videos of site progress and site induction register records. Arm your site foreman with a smart phone and you can get these uploaded daily and on file, accessible anywhere so long as you have a Wifi connection or some data to log on to Orbis.

You can also give your client access (at your discretion) to the contract program, variations, RFIs and there is a tool to enable you to produce client reports. This gives your client the satisfaction of being able to login and monitor the progress of his project.

You can track and sign off defects using simple data entry techniques. Again, because its online, those contractors responsible for attending to defects have access to photos and reports that you can easily upload.

You can genuinely manage a project from inquiry to sign off of defects from this one online platform. It streamlines the administrative day to day tasks of project management into an easy to use web browser format.

It also essential to highlight that the customer support staff are friendly and proactive. Even willing to incorporate/modify features up on request.

Orbis is definitely worth the investment of time and money to incorporate into your operations. It will save time and effort in the long run and help to keep you in control.

Pros

Log on anywhere online and manage your projects.
No need for large data Storage.

Cons

You have to get your contractors to buy into using the system. It can take a little persuasion but once they are on board you can use to its full potential!

The key to managing our projects in one centralised location

Used Daily for 1+ year

Review Source: Capterra

Our experience with Orbis Pro has been extremely positive. Previously we had very little process for Collectivus and with numerous spreadsheets & communication outlets things were getting missed or translated incorrectly. Now with Orbis Pro implemented, we can centralise all parts of the business in the once place to ensure consistency across our design works.

Pros

Orbis Pro brings all parts of Collectivus together in one place. The Nexvia team customised Orbis Pro to suit our needs, allowing us to quote our jobs and then track & manage our hours and expenses against each project. Here we can see exactly what we are making from each job and identify trends for future projects to better our processes. Orbis Pro also makes invoicing and tracking payments super simple!

Cons

Adapting to Orbis Pro was a challenge for team members at first however with the on-going support and guidance from the Nexvia team, it is now second nature.

From a management perepsective to overlook project financial performance in realtime anywhere I am in the world is fantastic. First time in 15 years of owning my business and 25 years looking at project management software, this is the first time I have been able to do this

Pros

Its functionality, web based, ease of use, Estimating, Project Management, Purchasing, Accounts all in one package that is tailored to my industry is awesome. Real time information is great also.
Considerable amount of Pros

Cons

Its ability to handle big Joinery estimated projects, this tender can create issues. Its not perfect, what is though....minimal cons

Customer Support is what sets Orbis apart.

Pros

It brings all parts of the business together in one place. We can immediately see what we will make form each project and manage expenses as the project progresses, we can then review each project once completed and get all cost and profit information easily. The customer support has been amazing the team has traveled to meet wiht us and they are always available to us either on the phone or email.

Cons

Like any new software system it takes a while to learn and change what you are doing this system is no different especially with so many moving parts.
The time tracking of employees is a little clunky and the ability to report and follow up on tenders is taking a while to learn. To the teams credit at Orbis they are happy to change add and grow the system whey they see a good idea or a better way to do what they have been doing, they have done this several times for us.

Response from Nexvia

Hi Tristan,

Thank you for your feedback. Now that Xero Payroll is integrated with the system, this process should be easier for you and the team moving forward. We've also recently added new features to time tracking such as QR code scanners.

If we can provide additional training or support in these areas please let us know at [email protected]
