Comments: I love the take off / measurement feature of HomeFront, it is very easy to use and very helpful for the way I use it. I'm sure there are many more features to this software that I am not taking advantage of - I have only been estimating for about a year. As I continue in my profession I will certainly use and explore HomeFront to help me complete my work more efficiently.

Pros: It is very easy to use, for what I use it for - take offs on architectural plans. I have a senior estimator that shows me what I need to know, so that helps a lot with navigation.

Cons: I have not had a lot of success with finding answers myself using the help resources. It has a quirk that makes the plan you are working on unaccessible at times, I have not been able to figure out why, or figure out any other way to resolve the issue without rebooting my computer. However, I have not attempted to contact any help support.

Pros: This software is easy to use and integrates with a number of different accounting systems. It was a quick implementation and their consultants were extremely helpful with getting everything up and running. The functionality of the system is second to none. They have thought of everything when it comes to the building process to make our life easier. I can't say enough good things about how well this software works.

Cons: I would be interested in seeing a Software as a subscription pricing model for it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure to check references on the software and to ensure that the software will meet all of your needs not just the most pressing ones. This software has thought of all the little things we do as well as the major items
