I've used the SEC estimating at three different companies now, it works wonderfully.

Saving time and accuracy

Pros

Live prices and the fact I can always talk to someone if I need help. I've also taken a number of one on one training courses.

Cons

Nothing at all, It now links with contract planning which was a feature I was particularly interested in.

Excellent all round software package for any electrical contractor

Pros

Its easy to use, well designed.
It can be tailored almost any way to suit the way a user runs their business as all companies have different requirements from what they require from software.
If other modules i.e. job costing, procurement & Invoicing are purchased then it makes an excellent 1 stop shop for job costing analysis and comparing estimated costs against actual job costs.
The vendor SEC are excellent at a quick turn around of any enhancement request that a user feels would benefit them (sometimes there is a cost, which is understandable) sometimes there is no cost for these, which is always appreciated by a user.
If a user finds a glitch in the software as all software sometimes has, then SEC fix it almost immediately, there is no waiting for endless approval from other departments as can sometimes happen. Its as if their software designer is always on hand to fix any issues instantly. Their support line is always helpful and are pro active with every issue no matter how small the query.
It does what it says on the TIN and more besides

Cons

No issues with Vendor Excellent all round service
Software posting to other software (I.E. Accounts Package & CIS) Sage for example. Does not always post into it as you require or maybe expect. However there are many accounts packages on the market and every user wants different things from software and as said above, SEC work with you as a user to enhance their software, therefore the posting to other software is constantly being reviewed.

SEC Cypher review

Pros

the integration into Sage accounts is very good. Since installing on a terminal server the speed improvement was a god send.

Cons

SEC is very good and responsive.

The biggest issue is the modifying and editing of reports, its just fiddly.

We work to many reactive customers who wont issue a po but we cant raise a value without an invoice and so we have to raise an invoice and this creates accounts confusion. One of the features our previous package did allowed a DRAFT invcoice to be created - we moved 5 yrs ago and still wish we had this facility.

Electrical Software Review

Pros

This is a complete Package which deals with the job from enquire right through to final invoicing, We have used this product for 15 years and very rarely have we encountered any problem. The advice line is excellent an you get to speak to a real known person. I have previously used other versions of software from other suppliers and have had some real nightmares.

Cons

If I have ever had any problems SEC have always tried to accommodate them where possible in future releases
