We switched from an older Estimation system. The QuoteSoft system makes it much easier to start a new job and customize reports.

Pros

Once the standards are set up for exactly how you install a system, starting a take-off, stripping off drawings, and getting to a report are very simple.

Cons

It takes some time up front to get the standards customized to your particular standards. The "canned" standards are a good starting point, but it works much better is they are customized. There are almost too many options for customization.

Great product!

Pros

Easy to learn. Allows you to provide fast and accurate bids. Technical support is also very helpful and quick to respond to any questions or issues you may have.

Cons

It takes some time to get set up with the software. Key access only allows you to use the software with the physical key in hand. I wish it were a server version with a certain amount of seats available so that when you are working from a different computer you don't have to take that key with you.

Pros

Everything about this software is great. We have used it since day one of opening our Commercial Department

Cons

The only con I would think of would be it takes quite a while to setup the software with all your pricing and part categories but once it's done you're good to go.

Pros

Easy to learn, easy to use. I really like how you can tailor the software specific to your company, such as labor rates/hours. The biggest pro would have to be the Customer support and training.

Cons

While this software is going to save you time when bidding projects, it takes a great deal of time to learn all aspects and features the software has to offer. We have had the software for about 6 months now, but I'd say to get our moneys worth it will take us a year to fine-tune the system in order to make the estimating seamless for our estimator.

The program is very easy to learn and has many ways to sort out reports for estimating. You can really break out a job to its nuts and bolts. The service is next to none. Anytime you need help with a situation the quotesoft team is there to help you understand what you need to do. I have worked on quote soft duct previously and now I had to learn the piping program. The piping program is a little different but once you understand the steps necessary to set the job up it is not that bad. Remember you always have help a phone call away!

My only problem is the time difference. I am in Pennsylvania and there is a three hour window. But I have called earlier and was accommodated by one of the representatives on the east coast.

Recommendations

Try other software like I did and you will quickly realize that this software is a great product that you will enjoy using.

Quote Soft has gone to On-Screen only for all of their products leaving some us who like the Digitizer boards behind

Recommendations

With the type of work we do, a lot of design build, budgets, incomplete plans, we are still in need of a digitizer based system, or a combination of the two. If you are comfortable with On-Screen only, then I would advise that you look into Quote Soft as a very viable option

So far, it's been great. We've had no real problems. If anything, the manuals could be improved.

Recommendations

We researched ten other programs, narrowed it down to five, and ended up picking QuoteExpress. They were not the cheapest, but they had all the features we liked. Do your research and arrange as many demonstrations as you can

We are a commercial plumbing contractor in Orlando FL, and have been in business for 37 years. Projects include hospitality, Disney, Sea World, schools K-12, multi story office, medical and more. During my 5 years in estimating we have gone from scale rules and markers, to what I believe to be the best onscreen takeoff available today with Quote Express Piping.

The ability to customize the program to fit our needs along with the time saving on screen takeoff, we have been able to cut estimating time by 30% or more.
The tech support offered is second to none, and we always get a call back within a very short amount of time (if we even need support, which is not often as the program works great)

I would tell anyone still using blueprints and scale rulers to try this program, it is so user friendly and easy for even the most computer challenged person to learn (believe me, I have had to train people who can barely turn a computer on)
All in all the best product out there in my opinion, and the yearly user conference shows they do care what the customer wants and listen to our suggestions.

We knew we were making the right choice with QuoteExpress after the demo, which was clear. Something we were not counting on was the ease of implementing the system. With other brands of software in the past we would send our estimator's out of state to learn the software, and they would come home confused and had more questions than answers. With QuoteExpress they learned the system via webinar, and in the comfort of being in front of their own desktop. This helped tremendously to expedite the learning curve, and they had comfort within the software almost immediately.

We use both the piping and sheet metal take-off programs here at Walker-J-Walker. Both programs are complex enough to take off whatever you need to while also simple enough to not over complicate the process. Quote Express is always updating the software and adding features. For large jobs, the on-screen take off helps speed up the process. Quote Express's customer support is exceptional. Every time I have a question, simple or complex, I call them up and they have me fixed or answered in no time.

I have been using QuoteExpress for the past 4 years. Coming out of the field, I was surprised to find how easy it was to use the software. QuoteExpress is very user friendly and the tech support is great. We have also been using on-screen for close to a year and I find that to be even easier. The only downside is that it can be a little slow and has a few glitches, which could be my computer not exceeding the software requirements.

We've been using Quote Express Sheet Metal for 10 plus years. It's an easy and comprehensive program. The most beneficial to me is the reporting. With little effort and skill you can create a report that gives you exactly what you need and no more. You don't need to sift through long lists of data looking for what you want. Tech Support is outstanding! If you have a problem, one phone call and in 10 minutes you are back in business and doing productive work.

I'm all about ease of use and keeping things comprehensive but simple. QuoteExpress is the easiest estimating system to use and to teach. I've had interns figuring change orders in less than an hour of being introduced to the product. QuoteExpress allows me to no longer hire or fire based on who can operate software. In addition, I've found customer service to be outstanding. I've had issues in the past and brought them to the programmer’s attention on Friday and Monday morning they call and download the solution. Nobody does that. You will find no better mechanical estimating product period.

We are a mechanical contracting company that has used the QuoteExpress piping program for the last 3 years. Being a Canadian company we examined the ability to use our pricing service very carefully and were impressed at how easily this could be implemented. Another area of importance to our company is tech support and the QuoteExpress tech support team is second to none in our eyes. With the ease of setup, the short learning curve, outstanding tech support and constant future vision, the decision to switch has been an extremely rewarding one. Well done!

On-screen take off for HVAC Estimating.

Pros

The most valuable features of this software are the capabilities to do on-screen take off without the need to print or have physical blueprints. Once the database is populated with your shop standards and prices, estimating is made simple and extremely quick in comparison to older methods. Multiple pressure classes may be created to draw the most relevant data for whatever standard you are required to build to. Set permissions on users so weaker users don't get into the data file and make costly changes. All in all this is a great estimating software for HVAC.

Cons

With the amount of features this software boasts, it does have a tendency to crash. Further to this some of the more simple glitches that you think they would fix and focus on seem to be pushed aside for more marketable feature upgrades.
