About Estimating Link

Estimating Link is a construction estimating and bidding solution. It’s suitable for heavy highway, environmental, bridges, site-work and civil projects, and both state and private commercial work.

Estimating Link allows users to create and re-use task data from previous jobs and scale tasks to the appropriate amount of work being done. The solution features subcontractor/material and rate table comparisons as well as a fuel worksheet that automatically recalculates the appropriate resources. It also offers the ability to move revenue sources in order to take advantage of quantity overruns or underruns. Users can check their bids for possible errors and the program will report potential pitfalls and oversights.

Daily User

The system is simple to use and I rarely, maybe once a year have an issue and when I do, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is quick to figure out what is going on and help solve the problem. Most of the time it's been user error. I think this system is awesome and will continue to use this system here and will invest in the system for my own company when the time comes.

Pros

The ease of being able to copy a previous project and make minor changes and go with it or import line items from other projects to keep from trying to remember what I did the last itme. I bid on avaerage three to six projects a week.

Cons

I honestly don't dislike anything with the system.

Reasons for Choosing Estimating Link

I did a trial with Bid to Win program to consider purchasing before using or learning The Estimating Link, however Estimating Link is basically the same thing, just the layout of the system may look different, they have the same capabilities and the cost of the Bid to Win program about gave my boss a heart attack. Even if I had the money, I would purchase Estimating Link and save a tremendous amount of maney.

TCLI Review

Pros

The program "thinks" like an estimator would think. That is it is easy to assign the five items almost every bid item would take. Labor, Equipment, Material, Sub-contractor and miscellaneous. I tell people all the time, We have an easy business. You either make a mistake in the estimating or in the field. This along with "Field Link" pretty much give you the feed back on a daily basis so you can address the problem right away.

Cons

On large bids the program is somewhat slow.

Estimating Link Software Review

Overall, our experience has been very positive. We are building a repository of easily accessible estimates that can be analyzed, compared, and tracked.

Pros

I liked that we could get up and running in a fraction of the time it took to set up other software solutions; it was easy to train others to use; and the customer service staff have always been very accommodating and helpful. Consistently, customer service would not only solve the problem for which I was asking help, but also would make additional suggestions on what we could do with the software.

Cons

Though not really a con, it is probably important to know that the software does not have a take-off module. The estimator inputs take-off quantities done outside the software into the estimate.

Reasons for Choosing Estimating Link

Lower barriers to entry. Seemed much simpler to set up, use, and maintain. Seemed like an overall better value for the cost. Seemed like less of a risk if it did not work the way we hoped. (It did work out as we hoped.)

Reasons for Switching to Estimating Link

We investigated the product because of a recommendation of a user. We liked what we saw and decided to switch believing it would provide a better system for us to use.

Great Software, Easy and Powerful

Easy to use, easy to teach. If you can work in Excel you can work in this program.

Pros

No nonsense program. Easy to build projects and to create professional proposals for bid.

Cons

I wish there was a multi-screen or multi-instance way to operate the software. Besides that its fantastic.
