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.

On screen Duct take off made simple for Sheet Metal Estimators.

On-screen take off for HVAC Estimating.

Pros

The most valuable features of this software are the capabilities to do on-screen take off without the need to print or have physical blueprints. Once the database is populated with your shop standards and prices, estimating is made simple and extremely quick in comparison to older methods. Multiple pressure classes may be created to draw the most relevant data for whatever standard you are required to build to. Set permissions on users so weaker users don't get into the data file and make costly changes. All in all this is a great estimating software for HVAC.

Cons

With the amount of features this software boasts, it does have a tendency to crash. Further to this some of the more simple glitches that you think they would fix and focus on seem to be pushed aside for more marketable feature upgrades.

Great Product

Great product!

Pros

Easy to learn. Allows you to provide fast and accurate bids. Technical support is also very helpful and quick to respond to any questions or issues you may have.

Cons

It takes some time to get set up with the software. Key access only allows you to use the software with the physical key in hand. I wish it were a server version with a certain amount of seats available so that when you are working from a different computer you don't have to take that key with you.

Quote Soft

Pros

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!

Cons

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.

Our Go To Software for Mechanical Estimating

Pros

Everything about this software is great. We have used it since day one of opening our Commercial Department

Cons

The only con I would think of would be it takes quite a while to setup the software with all your pricing and part categories but once it's done you're good to go.

Highly customizable

We switched from an older Estimation system. The QuoteSoft system makes it much easier to start a new job and customize reports.

Pros

Once the standards are set up for exactly how you install a system, starting a take-off, stripping off drawings, and getting to a report are very simple.

Cons

It takes some time up front to get the standards customized to your particular standards. The "canned" standards are a good starting point, but it works much better is they are customized. There are almost too many options for customization.

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.

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.

Takeoff is so much simpler

Pros

What an amazing product! Going from doing takeoff by hand to this is like night and day. I make way less errors because I can color code everything and get a count on exactly how many of each type of fixture I need as well as how many feet of pipe, how many of each fitting, and the current cost of them. I can submit an order to my supplier with confidence knowing I didn't miss anything.

Cons

It is expensive, so if you do not use it on a regular basis you may not consider it, but it you use it weekly, the time it will save you will pay for itself.
