Comments: I will be able to price jobs a lot quicker and more accurately, no concerns about accidentally leaving something out.

Pros: Time-saving, accurate, professional, comprehensive. Representative on the other end of the telephone was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble, very polite and friendly. Definitely onto a winner with this.

Cons: Nothing so far, have just started with this software, but from early days and the demonstration I can't see any problems with it, it is just what I was hoping it would be.

Comments: It has saved me a great deal of time and money, preventing ommisions and errors in the quote process.

Pros: It is a powerful tool which can be adapted to suit your own way of working. The job profiles and the quote letter, once edited, save time on every time.

Cons: It takes a while to work out how to adapt it. The libraries were confusing to navigate at first as there were general libraries and job specific libraries. The new versions have become far more clever than my needs demand and keeping things simple can be a problem in itself

Comments: We find Easy Price Pro an excellent software programme. From start to finish their customer care was very courteous and informative. Even once we had downloaded the software which came very promptly they kindly gained access to my computer and activated all the programmes including an amendment to my excel settings , which I would never have been able to do . We find the programme very user friendly and becomes easier with practice. We would recommend their products anytime.

Pros: Ease of use of the programme and knowledge of customer care representatives.

Cons: Sometimes a little confusing , until you become familiar with it

Comments: EasyPrice Pro do the job as offered! There is no much to add other then it is working guys. They have a good support so yes you can learn with them. Honest opinion guys from www.first4build.com !

Pros: To start with I would like to point that we did some research on the current market. From all of the available products, we chose Easy Price Pro. The support and additional products made the difference. The cost is also the advantage.

Cons: The only thing that we don't like is that the software is based on Microsoft Excel. So you must have Microsoft Office installed on your machine... (I recommend 2016 licence - do not buy the M.O. 365 crap- search on eBay ;) ) So it is a ''spreadsheets'' based software.

Pros: We have used Easy Price Pro products for over a decade to enable us to provide accurate quotations, schedules, and health and safety information compatible with each project which are accepted by across both domestic and commercial environments. The programmes are adaptable and user friendly, and the support I have received in the past has been second to none, instantaneous and patient which was greatly appreciated. I have always recommended this product to fellow builders and tradesmen alike and will continue to do so

Cons: There's really nothing to dislike, as I have already stated Easy Price Pro is easy to use, has excellent features and you can customise your package to suit, together with an excellent support team

Comments: A very good user friendly product.

Pros: This software is easy to use, made easier by the fact that the staff at Easy Price Pro are very friendly and helpful.. If you are use Excel this is the platform on which their software works and so it is both familiar and user friendly. I have used the system on and off for in excess of ten years now and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it as a realistic, effective, and not over complex tool.

Cons: The product is easy to use and historically there have been minor glitches which you discover on checking but they have been few and far between

Saves time and money on re-entering information that we use regularly.

Pros: After using many different pricing software, by far this is the best one. We have been using this system for a few years now and the customers love the fact they can see what they are paying, right down to the last screw! We don't even use architects no more we do it all on Easy Price Pro! Saving time and money

Comments: We bought 2 packages (total build & New houses and extensions) for our small team of estimators. The added bonus we found some months later when we enquired about any training was the speed and high value for money that the on-site team that was sent to was to provide the support we desperately required. Both the rep spent as much time with us as we required and across all areas of the software to ensure that when they left that we had a full and thorough understanding of the product and the benefits and features that it had. They also offered telephone assistance and help whenever we needed it which gave me the confidence that we had indeed bought.

Pros: 1) Speeding up the time it takes to create an estimate 2) Improving the accuracy of the estimates we produce 3) Improving the project management at the later stages involved in organising a successful job which is been won.

Another call to save the day.

Pros: The software is powerful and little by little you go deeper into its resources. I got a little stuck, more so with the navigation of files in Windows than anything else (you know the feelings that come when you are not sure what you saved and what you should delete etc) so i called customer care and he talked me through my mis steps, and he offered to come and help me next time he was up this way. He did. He helped me not only with the software but with some general business nouse and has inspired me to get this thing we are building down.

Cons: windows as appose to Mac operating feel/smoothnes is not as nice as IOS but that is a problem for any indi software.

Pros: easy to use interface, detailed quote for you and client, can do a quote in a evening, very good support staff and the demo before you buy

Cons: i can't think of any cons about the product really, maybe it is a bit expensive at first but to more than pays for itself after a few quotes

Great software programme. Despite the high cost it is worth it given the time saved in producing quotes manually. Support staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. It is a valuable tool for the efficiency of our business.

Comments: The staff have been really helpful with the software and more. I'd recommend on the level of service alone, but the product is great too when you get used to it.

Pros: I really like how everything is done for you and thought of to the finest details - perfect for my busy mind while trying to do everything else that's entailed in running a business.

Cons: It is a very complex system behind it all, and it's taking me a bit of getting used to to train myself to use it to my full advantage, but that's still miles better than the way we used to do things.

Easy to use software, well worth the investment in your company and your time that you will save.

Pros: Easy to use software, we won a building project with the help of using this software, (first time we had used it!) as the client commented how professional it looked, along with everything else that we offered as a company.

Cons: Nothing we can think of, perhaps more flexibility of adding costs quickly from the central library but it is still very good

Pros: Easy Price Pro, as the title suggest Easy pricing software all functions easily used. Saved loads of time preparing quotes using this software. Each section of works carefully thought out and presented. Diagrams are a great help too.

My experience of this product is very positive, it has saved me time in the office and my business is more profitable because I can spend more time onsite.

Comments: At first, I needed help to put the software into practice and this was provided by my local rep, in a way that was easy to follow. If I have any questions I can always talk to the Customer Care Section, and both have been very helpful, and have always been able to deal with my inquiries. It has helped my business grow and I would definitely recommend this product.

Pros: I have greater accuracy in my pricing, and it taught me about things I had not factored in before, for example my cement mixer. When my jobs became larger and more complicated greater accuracy was very important, and Health and Safety. Clients like to see in detail what I have included in the cost.

Cons: Making changes to script, I found I could not change just one word. The program would only provide a paragraph or a sentence as an alternative.

Comments: if you were thinking about buying the programme, I can highly recommend this system to small and large builders.

Pros: I use this to run my building and estimating business and i have been using this for the past 10 years. i have tried other programmes but non of which come any where near the quality that this programme produces in a very short space of time that is very accurate and user freindly

Pros: I like the layout (in order of the build) and the reports it produces which impresses our clients. Support team always friendly and set everything up for you which helps as we are not good on computers.

Cons: It cost us a fair bit but saying that we made the money back after the first 2 times of using it as we won the work.

Comments: Cost us more in time and money than doing the estimates the old fashioned way. We've spent a fortune on hardware trying to run it but it hasn't helped. They're always apologetic but the software just doesn't work properly and will very soon be out of date!!! DON'T BUY

Pros: The actual principle is good and would work but the technology isn't there. We do often have to tweak figures as it isn't quite flexible enough.

Cons: Had countless problems with it crashing, losing information, freezing. None of the main suppliers price lists can be automatically upgraded into your library so have spent hours manually entering them but as the files are too big it takes hours just to do a handful, only for it then to crash and lose it all. Had to have support take over to sort problems countless times and they can't always fix it which has meant uninstalling and reinstalling. Had to send back laptop they provided, new one was no better, so bought a new high spec pc and still can't run without errors. Won't run on Office 365 so despite having this on my PC I had to purchase a DOWNGRADE to Office 13. So my PC no isn't up to date so when Office 13 becomes obsolete my pc will be useless. They have no intention of upgrading their software to work with 365.

Comments: I first purchased Easy Price Pro in 2010 and have saved a lot of time using it. It helped me win more work and even paid for itself after the first 2 quotes I produced. Definitely worth its money as I don't have to spend as much time in the office and spend more time on site. One of the best purchases my business has made.

Pros: Easy to use compared to others I tried. Easy to understand with all the diagrams

Pros: The best thing about this software is the concept of it! I loved the the idea of it and what it could potentially do for my company. I no longer use the product, this is because I was drawn by its potential but let down by the reality.

Cons: You will find holes all through out this software, the fancy bits they show you are how their build modules calculate the cost automatically and at first glance this looks great until you realise that you won't build practically the way they have set up their modules. The trades are different as are their work packages. You'll end up with a ball park estimate but the detail of how you got it will be unreliable. Pointless! If you wanted that then just multiply your overall footprint by the national build average or lick you finger, hold it up and take a rough guess!!

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not buy this, it's a huge waste of money!! Every decent merchant will do you a bill of quantities or a materials list pretty cheaply in order to win your business. They are more accurate, save your money and use them.

Vendor Response

by Easy Price Pro on December 05, 2017

Dear CJ, I work for Easy Price Pro, and I am operating a new Customer Care team, we are calling all existing customers to ensure satisfaction as well as looking at any bad reviews to find out what has gone wrong. I would really appreciate some feedback to find out what has happened and how we can help you. The only information I currently have is notes of guidance given on different occasions as well as some call recordings where you said you weren't called back and therefore felt compelled to write a bad review, however, upon further investigation it has shown Easy Price Pro always called you back (but there might have been some confusion with Pro Estimating Services, who did not call back). I really look forward to hearing from you to find out what exactly you aren't happy with and how we can help. Kind regards, Rachel
