Great Product!

Pros

We use this daily for our roofing estimating. It really helps that it syncs with our local supply company and prices constantly update.

Cons

Price point was had to adjust at first. but if you really think about the time it saves you having do it all by hand. It is worth it.

Make a Mac version!!!!!!!

Pros

The product worked fine before no one supports it anymore. It is useful when it could be used after you learn it.

Cons

Does not work with my MacBook Pro. Way behind in technology if can not even have a Mac version. I lost lots of money paying others to run my X8 invoices.

Pros

The multiple line items are great. They could 3xpand slightly in some areas but overall it's pretty comprehensive.

Cons

A major drawback would be the so called market rate. They go by contractor bids in an area. Some contractors have no clue how to bid a job so they in turn drive the rates down.

Pros

Xactimate have a complete prices list that includes all trades required for the restoration industry and described in the CSI's 16 divisions in construction.

Cons

Xactimate needs to improve their takeoff tools in order to make the software more easy to use at the time of calculating quantities.

Pros

It's Great and accurate. It's updated every month, and very efficient. A lot of the adjuster's we work with use the same program,, so i definitely feel like we are on the same page.

Cons

I wouldn't say the price is a " con" even though it's pretty expensive. It's worth the investment. One difficulty we experience is, when adding to line items.. it will place what i'm typing to the bottom of the page no matter where I would like it to be placed on the page.

A must for anyone doing insurance restoration or remodeling

Pros

Recognized by most insurance companies, it is kept current and pricing can be modified by zip code. Excellent sketching tools

Cons

Steep learning curve, some glitches in import of pictures into the new version of Xactimate. Does not have some higher quality items and is probably a little low for commercial use.

Pros

Consistently updating prices bases on zip-code & since we work with insurance companies so much, having the same tool that adjusters use is super helpful. You can generate reports that correspond to what they have.

Cons

You have to go to training course to learn, it's very time consuming and expensive. Finding the right line item in the report is difficult, if your construction knowledge isn't vast.

Having the current fair market rates for almost any work that needs to be done on a home is priceless. We work with insurance companies so it has allowed us to generate over in supplements last year.

You need to attend training to be able to use the program properly and to its fullest potential. The training is time consuming and expensive but it is well worth it.

Why did you send this to me? I haven't uses xactimate for years.

Pros

The fact that Task pricing is in the program, and yet they can be adjusted. So the prices are a good place to start.

Cons

The cost is too much for the amount of times that I would use it. When I was doing insurance repair it was ok. But now I don't use it enough.

Pros

Easy to learn, use and to export information. The program allows you to embed photos and attach information, another good feature is the 3D sketch.

Cons

Tricky to sketch multiple roof slopes, specially when there are different highs too. There is no waste factor when replacing flooring.
