Excellent software and even better customer service

The experience has been great !! [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is a life saver to start learning this software We set up a few morning meetings for about a month and after that, I was able to get a bid done by myself.. We have really tightened up our numbers and are starting to see ourselves be more competitive in this crazy plumbing bidding world. So a big thank you and a high recommendation to Wendes Software and [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] for all your efforts and continued help! Thank you!

Pros

Once everything is set up it’s pretty easy to use Just click and drag and everything is priced within that line

Cons

Set up has to be done and then you have to learn it.. as with any software program.

Reasons for choosing WenDuct and WenPipe

Seemed to be more in tune with the plumbing world.

Great product and outstanding customer support team.

Pros

We've been using Wenduct for over 2 decades and have had great success with it. We actually realized about a year ago that we hadn't updated in years, but the product still worked very well. Now that we've upgraded, we have even more functionality. It definitely requires some training, but we've been able to on-board 4-5 employees on it relatively quickly (3-6 months with close training by a seasoned estimator).

Cons

The hardware fails from time to time, but the software has been pretty reliable. That said, setting it up initially takes a lot of legwork.

Crucial to our business

Great software, it has our bids right where they need to be.

Pros

Easy to use and customizable enough to take off any project. Seems to be a very accurate way to bid small to very large projects.

Cons

Needs better real-time updates. Some of the equipment that we use on projects are not included in the software that I have found.

Easy-accurate Estimating

Both programs are easy to navigate through and we can bid jobs twice as fast.

Pros

This software makes estimating so much faster and very accurate, When I have question or need an answer to anything on the program Gene and the whole crew at Wendes are there to help every time.

Cons

I haven't found anything I dislike about the software, I was hesitant at first estimating the old fashion way because I don’t like change but I’m very happy we purchased the soft ware.
