Worth every penny

Great product for my needs as a contractor averaging in 3mil in sales a year. It has sped up my estimating process by 3x.

Pros

Ease of use with the ability to make your own custom assemblies, training is available regionally and over the phone if needed. Customer support is very efficient. And no monthly hidden fees!!!!

Cons

It isn't cloud based yet. I think it has catered to the residential side on certain functions that I wished I had for the commercial side, that would be helpful.

Solid program thats logical, easy to use, and vey flexible

Pros

it is extremely flexible in breaking a job into many parts and being able to change things as needed throughout the bid process. You can always pull portions out of the main job should change orders or alternate options need to be estimated along with the main part of the job. take off is easy and flexible. Job extensions are quick and you can verify pricing on large $ materials quickly. Form letters make the final bid preparation painless and help to provide consistant format across proposals.

Cons

A couple of items although they are definately not reasons to stay awaywould be: -> Pricing is not updateable with Trade Service (they have some bad blood between them) so i have to use their price updates. -> It would be nice if they had a report generator so one could generate some reports that are not available in the program -> would like to see more format options in the form letters. Rich text formatting would be a nice addition to an already useable feature

Well rounded and easy to use electrical bid software

Overall this application is ready to compete with other top electrical biding software developers.

Pros

great integration with windows, if you are familiar with Microsoft Windows and the office suite, then it is really easy to navigate the software. You can also utilize windows commands like copy and paste within the application.

Cons

Upgrades and customers request could be developed faster. Customer service is friendly and knowledgeable but you have to wait for a callback, which tends to be 20 to 40 min after the initial call.

Does the job

Pros

The program is quite easy to navigate and find your way on it. We liked it very much and felt good to get out money's worth.

Cons

What we like very least of it, I would have to say the Customer Service is very complicated. After the first call you have to wait for a call back from one of the representatives.
