The program is very easy to learn and has many ways to sort out reports for estimating. You can really break out a job to its nuts and bolts. The service is next to none. Anytime you need help with a situation the quotesoft team is there to help you understand what you need to do. I have worked on quote soft duct previously and now I had to learn the piping program. The piping program is a little different but once you understand the steps necessary to set the job up it is not that bad. Remember you always have help a phone call away!

My only problem is the time difference. I am in Pennsylvania and there is a three hour window. But I have called earlier and was accommodated by one of the representatives on the east coast.

Recommendations

Try other software like I did and you will quickly realize that this software is a great product that you will enjoy using.

Quote Soft is a very user friendly system and the tech support is great, truly believe it is one of the best on the market

Quote Soft has gone to On-Screen only for all of their products leaving some us who like the Digitizer boards behind

Recommendations

With the type of work we do, a lot of design build, budgets, incomplete plans, we are still in need of a digitizer based system, or a combination of the two. If you are comfortable with On-Screen only, then I would advise that you look into Quote Soft as a very viable option

The training we have received has set us up to be most productive when using the software. We like the adaptability of the program to suit our needs. The reports have been very useful when evaluating a tender.

So far, it's been great. We've had no real problems. If anything, the manuals could be improved.

Recommendations

We researched ten other programs, narrowed it down to five, and ended up picking QuoteExpress. They were not the cheapest, but they had all the features we liked. Do your research and arrange as many demonstrations as you can

We are a commercial plumbing contractor in Orlando FL, and have been in business for 37 years. Projects include hospitality, Disney, Sea World, schools K-12, multi story office, medical and more. During my 5 years in estimating we have gone from scale rules and markers, to what I believe to be the best onscreen takeoff available today with Quote Express Piping.

The ability to customize the program to fit our needs along with the time saving on screen takeoff, we have been able to cut estimating time by 30% or more.

The tech support offered is second to none, and we always get a call back within a very short amount of time (if we even need support, which is not often as the program works great)

I would tell anyone still using blueprints and scale rulers to try this program, it is so user friendly and easy for even the most computer challenged person to learn (believe me, I have had to train people who can barely turn a computer on)

All in all the best product out there in my opinion, and the yearly user conference shows they do care what the customer wants and listen to our suggestions.

We knew we were making the right choice with QuoteExpress after the demo, which was clear. Something we were not counting on was the ease of implementing the system. With other brands of software in the past we would send our estimator's out of state to learn the software, and they would come home confused and had more questions than answers. With QuoteExpress they learned the system via webinar, and in the comfort of being in front of their own desktop. This helped tremendously to expedite the learning curve, and they had comfort within the software almost immediately.

We use both the piping and sheet metal take-off programs here at Walker-J-Walker. Both programs are complex enough to take off whatever you need to while also simple enough to not over complicate the process. Quote Express is always updating the software and adding features. For large jobs, the on-screen take off helps speed up the process. Quote Express's customer support is exceptional. Every time I have a question, simple or complex, I call them up and they have me fixed or answered in no time.

I have been using QuoteExpress for the past 4 years. Coming out of the field, I was surprised to find how easy it was to use the software. QuoteExpress is very user friendly and the tech support is great. We have also been using on-screen for close to a year and I find that to be even easier. The only downside is that it can be a little slow and has a few glitches, which could be my computer not exceeding the software requirements.

We've been using Quote Express Sheet Metal for 10 plus years. It's an easy and comprehensive program. The most beneficial to me is the reporting. With little effort and skill you can create a report that gives you exactly what you need and no more. You don't need to sift through long lists of data looking for what you want. Tech Support is outstanding! If you have a problem, one phone call and in 10 minutes you are back in business and doing productive work.

I'm all about ease of use and keeping things comprehensive but simple. QuoteExpress is the easiest estimating system to use and to teach. I've had interns figuring change orders in less than an hour of being introduced to the product. QuoteExpress allows me to no longer hire or fire based on who can operate software. In addition, I've found customer service to be outstanding. I've had issues in the past and brought them to the programmer’s attention on Friday and Monday morning they call and download the solution. Nobody does that. You will find no better mechanical estimating product period.

We are a mechanical contracting company that has used the QuoteExpress piping program for the last 3 years. Being a Canadian company we examined the ability to use our pricing service very carefully and were impressed at how easily this could be implemented. Another area of importance to our company is tech support and the QuoteExpress tech support team is second to none in our eyes. With the ease of setup, the short learning curve, outstanding tech support and constant future vision, the decision to switch has been an extremely rewarding one. Well done!

The system is perfect for our business and very user friendly. It is easy to teach to others, who use it part time for project managing. We have had it for 5 years and use it for piping, and it is doing everything that I expected and wanted it to do, when we purchased it. We switched to QuoteExpress because we were looking for a program that more people could use and understand, without having to spend a fortune on training, and still get the detailed information that we required. The technical support is great, especially Brian Saylor. We have used his help for training at our office for the new full time estimators.

QuoteExpress took our estimating department into the 21st century. In the last 4 years our speed/accuracy has increased tremendously (sure beats the blueprints and colored pencils). With the implementation of the onscreen takeoff and our own group of assemblies, we are able to simplify the takeoff process and guarantee that all jobs are taken off the same, no-matter who the estimator. The way they listen to the customer’s feedback and ideas sets them far above the "big" companies and the customer support is outstanding. The WebEx feature allows us to show the problems in real time and come to a quicker fix. QuoteExpress has changed the way Tharp Plumbing Systems estimates and will continue to in the future.

I have used several other estimating programs throughout the years, QuoteExpress was by the far the easiest to learn, implement and be productive with. Back in 2006, I was presented the opportunity to change from a very popular Windows based piping/plumbing program to QuoteExpress. After evaluating QuoteExpress for several weeks, I was sold. One of the biggest advantages of QuoteExpress was the ease of use and the ability to use the software without much training. I believe if you are an experienced estimator with a solid understanding of basic computer skills such as Windows and Office, you can be productive with QuoteExpress within less than a week.

I knew at the time I was evaluating the software, the company I was with, would be adding staff for estimating. I knew with QuoteExpress, we could add an experienced estimator or a person with knowledge of the trade and computer skills, and that the individual we chose would not have to spend a week out of the office at training and then still be unsure of the software. I knew that within a couple of hours of demonstration in the office and a online training session or two, they would be ready to be productive estimators with Quote Express. I also love that almost all of the data from QXP is delivered to Excel, allowing customization of final estimate reports and sorting data in many different ways.

As for customer support and the rest of the staff, they are by far the best in the industry. They are always polite, helpful and knowledgeable. QuoteExpress has the staff with the ability to provide routine daily support for issues that pop up during an estimate to providing major program database customizations. QuoteExpress's Advanced User Conference is a great place to learn from other users and for users to communicate with QXP on wish list features that would make the program better and more productive. They also do an excellent job of listening to the customers and implementing the ideas that are presented.

We are a medium sized sheet metal company working in a range of industries from heavy duty industrial ventilation to high pressure commercial ventilation. Our client’s request prices from us often with very little preparation time, so being able to quickly manipulate our numbers is crucial. Prior to using QuoteExpress Sheet Metal we did all our estimates by hand, which left much to be desired in terms of accuracy and time management.

We purchased QuoteExpress Sheet Metal when it was still in the Gold revision many years ago, and have followed through with the software package all the way up to today. Quote Software has continually improved their software in terms of making it easier to use and more capable. Whenever I have required support be it in the form of a quick reminder or in a drawn out explanation and demonstration of one of the software's functions I have always found the Quote Software support staff to be of the highest caliber in terms of knowledge and communication.

I am an estimator for a Mechanical Contractor in the New Orleans area and have been using QuoteExpress for around four years. I have enjoyed learning the software and getting to know the Quote Express team. Quote Express has allowed us to vastly improve the number of jobs we are able to bid. Not only is it very user friendly but the Tech Support team is very knowledgeable about the software and is always very courteous. Wish we would have heard about QuoteExpress sooner.

Besides QuoteExpress being the easiest and most complete quoting software for a HVAC Fab Manufacturer, the Customer Service and Tech Support is Superb. While working with other company's Tech Support, it can be hard to communicate (speak a technical type of language) - NOT the case with QuoteExpress. Thanks QuoteExpress for all you do.

We use QuoteExpress Piping and Sheetmetal software on everything from small bathroom replacements to powerhouse installations. The software adapts easily to our various needs in different markets. QuoteExpress is hands down the most intuitive estimating software on the market. It is quick and easy to train new users on and the customer service is top notch. Database maintenance and updates are quick and easy. The onscreen takeoff options speed up takeoff and allow peer reviews to be more in depth. Having used multiple estimating products I can say with confidence that QuoteExpress is my first choice in software.

Streimer Sheet Metal is a Union Sheet metal contractor in Portland, Oregon. It is one of the largest and longest running sheet metal shops in the state. Our company uses both the Sheet metal program and the Fab Shop program. We were one of the first companies to start using the QuoteExpress product back when it was first created. I have used many different estimating programs in the past and not been satisfied. Since I started using the QuoteExpress onscreen take off software I have seen a huge increase in accuracy and I am able to bid twice as much work due to the user friendly on screen system and the speed at which I can take off drawings.

I've also found the program very useful in conceptual design build budgets as I am able to load the floor plans into the system, then physically draw, estimating and designing a complete HVAC system all at once. Saving myself many valuable hours that I can now spend building relationships and networking much better with my contractors. Thank you QuoteExpress; you guys are great and your tech support and training are second to none.

I have been using QuoteExpress, for piping estimating, for over three years. The program is very easy to learn to use, almost intuitive. There are many powerful features and options that can be mastered with limited experience. The design of the program is simple to the point of being elegant. The end user has been considered in the software development and the program continues to evolve with many of the changes being suggestions from estimators actually using the QuoteExpress program. The On Screen piping take off system is a great method of accurate reviewable piping takeoff.

The training and customer support is excellent with live WebEx and real time shared computer control for teaching and troubleshooting. In this age of smaller ice cream cartons and the shrinking candy bar, it is refreshing to see a product go above and beyond what one would expect for quantity and quality.

I have been using QuoteExpress for 4 years and have attended the User Conference and the advanced training held last October in Las Vegas. I have found the software easy to learn and I continue to learn more all the time. The tech support and the office support have been excellent since we bought the software. I always get a call back quickly, even if it is Kerry himself to help me with any issue I might have. I don't get to talk to the guys in tech support very much because of the great job they have done in the past with training me, but I know that when I need them they will be there to help.
