My Company has been a user of Insite software for 24 years

I would highly recommend Insite & Field General. I use Insite for our earthwork quantities, pipe excavation and backfill quantities, subgrade material quantities, finish grade quantities asphalt, concrete and topsoil. And fine the quantities to be very accurate. I use Field General for our field survey and GPS layout. I build my own TINS for our GPS machine control. They are very accurate and easy to build in Field General.

Pros

Insite/ Field General has always been on the cutting edge of the technology. Whether it's been digitizer takeoff, PDF takeoff or CAD takeoff

Cons

Some of the reports could be a little more detailed. But all in all everything is okay

Response from InSite Software

Rick: We appreciate your kind words. We are just about to launch new classes for building models with Field General. Watch the newsletter for details. Let's screen share and find out what it is you are looking for in reports.

Timesaver

Overall I really like the program. I would recommend it to anyone

Pros

This program has saved me a ton of time. The accuracy and the speed of the software is a real help. I am the owner\estimator and do the work in the field so finding a program that saves time is a game changer. The 3d model it provides helps with my crew to visualize the project and the customers like to see that as well.

Cons

When there is a list of drawings to choose from on the left hand side to import, the program doesn't scroll smoothly through them. Its hard to search for the drawing you want. If you see 5 drawings on the left, you have to click on the bottom one, and then it will let you see the one underneath of that.

Reasons for switching to InSite Elevation Pro

Earthworks for Planswift would take forever on a job with many grade lines. There have been jobs where it would take me 4-6 hours to compute the cut & Fill. With InSite, that same job takeoff takes 10-15 minutes. to see the 3D model gives you comfort in knowing if you made an error as well.

Response from InSite Software

Bryan, thank you for your review.

Production Efficiency

InSite SiteWork allowed us to speed up the take off process and simultaneously expand the use of machine control equipment. Additionally, the used of the modeling function post bid reduced the amount of time spent in the field with layout, staking and establishing grade stakes.

Pros

Speed of take-off when using vector PDF, quick 3D production to check for errors, improved reporting, ability to export to machine control model,

Cons

Lack independent function to align sheets, spot elevation input glitch after moving image, lack of ability to select and edit pipe input

Reasons for choosing InSite Elevation Pro

Cost, ease of use

Reasons for switching to InSite Elevation Pro

Modernization of software

Response from InSite Software

Cole, thank you for the review. We have recently overhauled the entire PDF alignment functionality to make it easier. Look for a roll out later his year. We will reach out to you for clarification about the other issues.

User Friendly Program

Overall this program has helped our company feel more confident about the cut/fill numbers we are using.

Pros

I appreciate how straight forward the program is. I am able to use this product to visualize the proposed site which is useful in figuring the logistics of the project.

Cons

Sometimes reading the reports can be a little confusing but it takes practice to understand.

Reasons for switching to InSite Elevation Pro

I had previously used InSite at a previous company and Earthworks did not have all the functions InSite offered.

Response from InSite Software

MacKenzie, thank you for your positive review. If you would like help clarifying the reports, we recommend taking the class Earthwork 2 available at https://insitesoftware.com/training/

Long Time User

We can prepare estimates quicker and make changes to bids if there are addendums to tender.

Pros

The paperless takeoffs have really decreased the time required to prepare a takeoff. Secondly I like the continuous improvement that Insite puts back into the product.

Cons

The arrangement of files and naming process was my least favorite part but I see that is now changing as well.

Reasons for choosing InSite Elevation Pro

Price when compared to the features we needed.

Reasons for switching to InSite Elevation Pro

Insite was able to offer us everything we required at a more competitive price.

Response from InSite Software

Maurice, thank you for your nice review. Stay tuned, there are big changes coming to file management!
