With so many construction estimating software products on the market, many buyers often wonder which products are used most often by their peers.
To answer this question, we ranked the top 10 most popular construction estimating software products by overall popularity.
This will help buyers can see which estimating applications are used across a range of business models and sizes:
To arrive at the rankings above, we analyzed vendors according to the following metrics:
Adoption rate: This factor reflects the number of people using the product on at least a weekly basis. We conducted an original survey of software users to gather this data. We weighted user adoption level the most in calculating overall scores for products.
Online searches for brand: This factor reflects the number of times the product name and related phrases are searched in Google per month. We weighted this factor more than social followers, but less than user adoption.
Social followers: This factor reflects the number of people who’ve “liked” or “followed” the accounts of the vendor on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. We weighted this factor significantly less than the other two factors.
This popularity ranking includes those products that have both a wide range of functions and a strong presence in the market. However, since popularity is a vague term, we came up with a methodology for assessing it.
The most important factors in our popularity score are:
- Number of users
- Search traffic
- Social followers
Based on Number of Users: Top 10 Construction Estimating Products
Based on Monthly Search Volume: Top 10 Construction Estimating Products
