Good till called customer support.

Lack of help from customer support was lacking, but the program is user friendly.

Pros

Ease of use and navigate thru the program.

Cons

Can not do somethings that would help in the visuals. Being able to rotate the 3-D image would help along with a few other things.

Shocked at how easy it was to learn.

Looking forward to all of the updates.

Pros

Very easy to use. They thought of everything. Very impressed with customer support! I love the demo videos within the program.

Cons

So far it has been a very good experience. I can not complain. Would be nice to have an phone app just to access the reports.

Earthworks On Screen is a great product.

For the cost, this was the best choice for my needs. I compared several trial versions and this was the clear choice.

Pros

Easy to use, fast digitizing, intuitive commands, and accurate scaling to ensure quantities are calculated correctly.

Cons

It would be great if this was directly linked to estimating software to the entries and calculation would be shared.

Earthworks

I had a trial offer of Earthworks software and I thought it was a good program. I had a little trouble downloading it at first but your IT person was very helpful. I would have chosen your software for purchase but the one thing that persuaded me to a different company is the 24/7 support. We are in a different time zone and it could possibly lead to a big problem if I have a deadline and a problem with my software and not be able to fix the issue if I am working into the evening. Other than that is was quite comparable to the one I actually invested in.

Pros

It seemed easy to use.

Cons

The customer service hours were too short, especially in my time zone.

Excellent. Very easy to use. Very accurate compared to manual takeoff

Pros

I like the layout and the ease of use. Brian at Tally Systems is great; he will help you anytime. He explains it so you can understand it very easily. This program makes doing takeoffs enjoyable. For an old country boy, this is definitely worth taking time to try it out. If you try it out, you will more than likely purchase it.

Cons

I definitely do not have any complaints at all. And let me tell you, if I wasn't satisfied with the program or the vendor, I would let someone know about it.
