Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • It's easy to use. Performance is great. Compatibility is great as well. Is known and used all around the world.

  • Easy to use and very user friendly and effective

  • Cons

  • Although some commands are simple to use, others can be very difficult and to use to so require specialist training

  • Not the easiest software to learn but once you got the hang of the menus, it was excellent.

  • Pros

  • The flexibility of the program to handle custom WBS, and to be able to flip back and forth. The ability to create alternates within the spreadsheet and then to turn them on or off is very valuable.

  • WinEst is a fantastic way to organize and quickly prce jobs. They offer pre made and customizable assembly systems that decrease the amount of time needed building a budget.

  • Cons

  • I did like everything about this software, I ended up using Sage at a new company, they were very similar and the costs were too.

  • The way the software manages custom views, layouts, etc through it's Config and INI files can be aggravating. Almost too many minute settings too.
