Pros: I like the ability to assemble my own library of services and costs. We perform a wide variety of commercial service work which requires a firm grasp of costs and history.

Cons: Would like to be able to access from various devices. Web based application or mobile app to access and edit completed files.

Natural move from Excel and very easy to learn.

Pros: It's simplicity and quick implementation. Easy to transition from Excel to Sigma. Love the outline format and ability to copy from other estimates. Runs very stable and very easy to install.

Cons: Does not have a perimetric takeoff solution. The report writer is very complicated. Wish they offered other databases than RSMeans. No real integration to a 2D takeoff tool.

Overall: Accurate and complete estimates i could rely on.

by Sigma Estimates on May 28, 2018

Thank you for your feedback and thoughts on improvements. We came out with a live integration to PlanSwift for 2D takeoff. The integration is free and can be downloaded from our shop - https://sigmashop.sigmaestimates.com/. We're happy to set up some time to show you how it works as well. Let us know and we will be in touch.

Very complete databank with easy to use functionality.

Pros: Sigma Estimates has a very competitive database with accurate estimates. The software is also easily integrated with other software such as Revit and Navisworks, to use for BIM and project management.

Cons: Sigma Estimates is not as developed in stand-alone modelling, as compared to other competitors like RS Means.

Pros: I love the scripting and the ability to "nest" assemblies within the system. This ability is so powerful and blows the doors off of anything else out there. The ability to import price lists and update libraries is critical to keeping your estimates up to date.

Cons: Documentation is being improved. More details on the scripting is always helpful. The online help is good but examples and templates using all of the commands is helpful for someone who is not a programmer or wants to see what each command does.

Overall: I use this daily and cannot estimate my projects without it.

Excellent, low cost software that integrates Revit models with Means data for accurate estimates.

Pros: Extremely easy to use and save tremendous time using Revit model data for estimates. We are able to easily export our Revit models to link with data from RS Means and create very accurate estimates. Workflow is very intuitive. Software cost is very reasonable.

Cons: There really are no negatives. We have been using Sigma for years and have had excellent results. It is extremely user friendly and when we run into issues, the company has been extremely supportive in giving assistance. Great product and great company.

Overall: Easy to use software for accurate estimates from Revit models. Integrates easily with RS Means data.

Simple easy to use software.

Pros: What I like most about Sigma is that I was able to pick up on it very quickly. I had no problem turning the software into my own, and making templates so my estimating went smoothly.

Cons: Its hard to say what I like least because I have not run into any problems where it has changed my thoughts about the software.
