Competitor's products (aside from charging exorbitant membership fees) are very limited in terms of actual management tools, and in terms of who you can share and communicate with. ConstructionSuite user or not, anyone can sign up for a free ConstructionOnline account, so you can always communicate with anyone you'd like to keep in the loop.
