“Not what it used to be”

OverallI used iSqFt for a short while before their last major overhaul and it definitely needed to be updated, but they took out a lot of features that make it almost as difficult to work with. I rate software based on the number of clicks it takes me to get something done and the last update has actually added more clicks. Customer Support often has their hands tied because the system "was designed to work that way."
ProsA much easier platform to work with. It has an updated feel to it, but this is probably the only good thing about it. I can navigate fairly easily between tabs such as bidder's invite list and the details of the project. I can see fairly easily who has received the invite and who didn't.
ConsSince the update, I have to now add contacts such as the architect, engineer, general contractor, etc. for a project individually instead of pulling from the contacts list. Some projects have up to 10 different professionals between the architect, mechanical eng, electrical eng, structural eng, site, GC, owner, etc. We even have to enter our own information if we want to add the estimator to the list. Second most frustrating part is the bidder's list. We don't usually invite all bidders so we have a condensed list that we pull from. The site has a main directory and then we can add contacts to our personal directory, but sometimes the actual person isn't the one that we deal with. We can't modify "our" contacts because everything is saved by the email address. If the bidder changes anything, we have to manually sync with our contact list. I believe before, all contacts were "our" contacts. The bidder's invite process is also time-consuming because I have to click a button to expand the spec section and then click the bidders from that section. Then click the next spec section to expand the bidder's list and click the bidder's I want to invite. Clicking individual bidders has always been ok, but the extra step I have to take is opening each spec section rather than just a complete list of bidders. This can add up to 20-30 extra clicks when I'm sending out bid invites. Finding bidders that aren't on our condensed list also takes a lot of work. I have to search for a bidder (maybe by company name, phone, email, etc.) and then select them to add to the bid list. That takes me back to the list of bidders I'm inviting. Each time I add someone, it always takes me back to the main list and I have re-open the search window again to find the next person, not on our condensed list. So the steps are to (1) open the search window (2) type in and search for the company I need (3) select them from the search results (4) add to the list at which point that search window closes. Start back at step (1) again if I have more than company to add. The alternative is to not select bidders from our condensed list, to begin with, but that list is vast and would take just as long, if not longer, to scan through when I'm adding a handful of bidders from one spec section. One other thing I wish they would change was the home projects screen. It shows all active, inactive, and archived projects. I can uncheck the inactive/archived or check the bidding only projects, but it changes back to the default to show all projects every time I log in. I wish I could start each session with just the active bidding projects. They also changed the way documents are saved. Once I upload drawings or specs, I have to manually edit each file with the page numbers. This is minor and I've noticed that most other companies don't even bother to specify the number of pages in each file or the page size. If you upload each spec section as a separate file, making this change (which involves in several clicks per edit) can be very time-to consume.
Recommendations to other buyersI know a lot of companies use this, but there has to be a better option out there.

“iSqFt - Good basic Program”

OverallI have used iSqFt every day for the past 3.5 years. It has been a very handy tool, and there are always new features that I am discovering as I use it.
ProsIt is relatively straightforward to use. Copying projects is a huge time saver, as well as being able to search for companies that match the trades you are searching for on any specific project.
ConsEditing company information and contact information is not always the easiest. Sometimes it is hard to delete a contact or change the information and people who do not want to receive invites, still receive them.

“Excellent”

OverallISQFT is an excellent investment if your company is bidding a lot of projects. You get a personal account manager who is always available to help you customize your software.
ProsI love ISQFT! It makes doing takeoffs on projects simple and helps us win more bids on jobs. I love having all of the project information in one spot.
ConsThe only negative would be the cost for small businesses.

“Decent option for organization of the bidding process.”

ProsIsqft really helps to connect you to bidding opportunities and general contractors. It helps you keep track of what you are bidding and in what stage of the process the bid is in.
ConsWish they would update bid info sooner, although I understand that sometimes they are at the mercy of people sending them the information.

“Great way to find new business ”

ProsWe use this program to find new jobs that are coming out and to look at plans for jobs that we're working on. It's easy to use. The search can be narrowed or expanded to get a wide variety of plans. They have a bunch of great information online to use.
ConsISQFT needs to promote themselves more, so we can get more projects to bid. I'm not sure their Risk Management assessment is the best either.

ProsI like the national contractor listing that allows for a database as we travel into new markets with our team.

OverallI've worked in construction for almost eight years, and I know the value of a software that works and helps you do your job efficiently. As an estimator, software that lacks adequate training support but costs less can actually add up to greater expense in terms of time and money. Fortunately, iSqFt is user-friendly, affordable, and comes with training support that is customized for us. When I started with Hill & Wilkinson, I inherited an application that was not iSqFt, but learned that the company had used iSqFt in the past. The reason for the change was to save the company money. But the software was hard to navigate, and training support was limited to generic online sessions. I would call customer service and was told to watch a video. That was both time-consuming and hard on our team. So I reconnected with iSqFt. Our representative, Jeff Underbrink, walked us through how to use iSqFt and answered all of our questions. We negotiated a good contract that enabled us to call or email anytime we needed training support - with a real person. What a difference! Using iSqFt, we can set up projects, trades, and find and invite subs in half the time it took us with the other software. Bottomline, iSqFt helps us excel at what we do. As a large general contractor in the Southwest region, we can get bids out in a timely manner and manage our projects efficiently. It's great to have iSqFt supporting our growth and success!

OverallVogel Bros. Building Co. has been using iSqFt for about 8 years now, as of early 2013, and it has given us an easy way to get more and better bids, improved our efficiency, and helped us communicate with our subs. Before we signed up with iSqFt, we had trouble reaching enough subcontractor bidders to provide competitive pricing. iSqFt has let us reach way more subcontractors, and has helped us find subcontractors with specific skill sets or specialties. Just that has helped Vogel Bros. Building Co. grow and has increased the number of jobs we've won. iSqFt has also given us the tools we need to do more in less time, reducing stress levels and increasing our work rate. In a tight economy, companies need to find efficiencies and take advantage of the tools that help them work smarter. iSqFt has done that for us. Our team can now do more with less, helping us quickly communicate with our subcontractors. This communication can be one-to-one, but iSqFt also makes it easy to send messages to everyone working on a project, with just a few clicks. In fact, our project assistants appreciate the ability to quickly update addenda to subcontractors in a matter of minutes. The bottom line is that using iSqFt in our daily work has helped us save both time and money. Prior to using iSqFt, the work that we handle now would've required adding an extra full-time employee, making iSqFt one of the best values around.

“iSqFt ”

OverallWith the Con listed above, once you get iSqFt set up the way the works best for your company, the program is a time saver when putting jobs out to bid, you can set automatic reminders to go out, you can quickly add bidders to your projects.
ProsiSqFt is a better alternative to Building Connected, while it does require a bit more involvement than BC, I like that it offers more options and tracking. I like that your database is yours, but you can also pull from the iSqFt database as well and add those contacts into your database for future use.
ConsI would say the con would be that the program requires more involvement and you need to be a little more tech savvy than other programs out there. the program take a little time to set it up the way that works best for your company.

“User-Friendly File-Sharing Platform!”

ProsThe best part of this program is the ease of use and the simplistic nature of how files are distributed from clients or to clients. The layout of the program is easy to understand for everyone and it is also very organized.
ConsThe only complaint that I would have on this software is that sometimes the program likes to log you out after only a few days of non-use. Otherwise this is a great platform.

“It gives me the ability to access plans and do a takeoff on my compute”

ProsThe software allows me to review jobs to determine whether or not i want to bid them. It makes it very easy to bid jobs right in my office and compiles all the measurements on spreadsheet for a comprehensive review of the job before i submit a bid. The software is easy to use foe a person who is not computer literate, and the technical support is available within minutes of a phone call.
Consthere is nothing I don't like about the company or the software
Recommendations to other buyersI am not very computer savvy, but the company does video training and gives me access to a tutorial on any aspect of the program, and will log into the program to help me understand something i cannot comprehend. I really like this program and it allows me to bid more jobs than i was able to before we purchased the software.

“iSqFt is old, outdated and unreliable.”

OverallI think my cons remark pretty much says it all.
ProsWhen if first came out 10 or 12 years ago it was very good. But now it is old, outdated and unreliable.
ConsYou gave full access to the subcontractors which made your system unreliable. Many of the subcontractors and suppliers went into the system and tagged themselves for every trade on the list instead of their specific trade. This made your system very unreliable at best for monitoring sub responses. And difficult and time consuming when selecting specific subs for each of the trades. Just as example, when you look up electrical subs you also have landscape subs, roofers, door suppliers, drywall subs, painter, plumbers, HVAC sub in the electrical category because you let subs tag themselves for all trades. Instead of sorting through 300 electrical subs I have to sort through 900 subs, most of them not electrical subs. Not sure if that was your intent but it is what has happened.

“I get most of my business through iSqFt”

ProsOh man, where do I begin... I love iSqFt! I recently started a new business selling/installing window coverings for commercial buildings and I have won most of my bids using iSqFt. It's easy to use, functional, and has tons of users (GC's). My dad works for Atlanta Flooring and also uses iSqFt. He loves to software and gets a large percentage of business through it too.
ConsThe only complaint I have is that sometimes when viewing PDFs it can be a little sensitive, especially when trying to zoom in on large floor plans. However, this could just be user error!

“Working Well”

OverallOverall we are very happy with ISqFt for our bidding and plan room. The people are great to work with and readily available for questions.
ProsISqFt streamlines our bid process which saves us time and gives us real time feedback on bidder activity. We also like having access to subcontractors in the ISqFt network. Their training and customer service is excellent!
ConsWe are also signed up to have access to bid opportunities that ISqFt lists on it's Bidding Jobs section. In many cases the jobs show up late and not in enough time to bid the project.

ProsThe program is very user-friendly. The learning curve seems shorter with iSqFt professional customer service and technical support. I'm able to easily find a lead, get plans and specs for the project, get accurate material and labor prices, request bids from subs, and submit the bid all with the same product and great customer service from the vendor.
ConsI personally have not found anything that I'm unhappy about with the product or vendor.

“Good stuff”

ProsThe best benefit of this software is the network of subcontractors that is included. It allows for expansion into new markets or locations and makes the transition much easier.
ConsInformation could possibly be shared. When you implement the software, you provide them with your subcontractor database. It's hard to believe they wouldn't extract some information from this for their own expansion purposes.
Recommendations to other buyersLook at all the alternatives. There's a lot of software options out there tailored to different company styles. ISQFT is good, but their are others such as Smartbid that can do the same thing.

“iSqFt is helpful in many ways.”

ProsThe vendor was friendly and worked with the price of the product, allowing our company flexibility with multiple options. The product has given us quick access to documents, as well as the ability to reach others in the construction community.
ConsThe search function can be difficult to navigate and requires very specific input to get the type of bids you are looking for.
Recommendations to other buyersThis software has a lot of ins and outs. Educate yourself thoroughly before you commit.

“iSqFt is easy to navigate and manage with very little training.”

ProsThe easy to use layout of iSqFt is the best thing about it. All of our contacts are in iSqFt so that we can easily send out bid invitations, manage documents, and update the bid status for subcontractors.
ConsFor the most part, iSqFt is in a "data silo". They are starting to dabble in their integration with Procore but before that, there was nothing else that it would talk to.

“Poor chose of for General Contrator”

ProsSubcontractors like it the best so we went with it.
ConsUnable to quickly chose subcontractors from your private directory and import them into your project without having to search for them. When you want to add a trade and subs to a project you need a paper copy of your private director and enter names or fax number into your project. Very time consuming.
Recommendations to other buyersBuild a template project instead of a private directory and delete the trades and subs you don't want with just a click.

“Good system if it fits your market well”

OverallNice system for finding jobs to bid on and reviewing specs/plans. The problem with our market (South Dakota) is they seem to be a little weak in our extremely rural market. If you try the demo and there seems to be a good fit for your market it would definitely be worth the price!
ProsGood for having plans/specs on jobs advertised. Ease of use is good. Good support network.
Consseems to have less jobs in extremely rural areas. Pretty expensive if they don't have the number of jobs in your market.
Recommendations to other buyersTry it and if it seems to have a good amount of jobs then definitely buy it!

“Don't waste your time and money ”

Overallcomplete joke called and voiced or concerns and was basically told to bad you are stuck in a one year contract
ProsNothing this is the worst scam and rip off possible
ConsWas promised that this would be a great product to find low voltage jobs when you find them on the platform you have to weed through 20 pages of documentation only to find out even though it's listed its not being bid so you spend 30 min to 2 hours for nothing

“Excellent Plan Room and Service”

ProsThe software is very user-friendly, and it's easy to find information regarding projects.
ConsThere's nothing I don't like about iSqFt. If you know how to put it to work for you, it will give you more of what we all need most: time.
Recommendations to other buyersLet the system work for you; use it to maximize your results

“Love the database!”

OverallThanks to the database of subcontractors on iSqFt, we have seen a nice increase in a number of bids we received from subcontractors. It has allowed us to form great working relationships with new subs as well. Also, our account rep is always quick to help us with any questions we may have.
ProsThe database of subcontractors available
ConsNothing
Recommendations to other buyersIf you are looking to increase the subs you invite, resulting in more bids received per trade, iSqFt is the program to use.

“Easy App ”

ProsJust started using iSqFt. So far it has been easy to find the information needed for a project. All the contractors info is available. I like the set up. Easy to use
ConsMore difficult to learn my way around but once I took the tutorials it was easy! Communication board between gc's and subs might be nice.

“Terrible Customer Service”

OverallNo benefits if the customer service is horrible.
ProsThere's not much we actually got from Isqft. other than being able to connect with a few other contractors and such.
ConsI have tried to reach out to our area manager numerous times and no response. I then reached out to his boss and no response for her. Terrible customer service and wouldn't recommend anyone to use this service.
