Comments: Overall for my small roofing business with only one estimator I found this software really affordable, easy to use, and a new huge asset to our company. Will recommend to my fellow contractors for their estimating and take off needs.

Pros: This software is easy to learn and use, especially for a beginner (like myself) with take off software. Great for our small roofing company that needs simple tools. Biggest bonus is this software can calculate cost in materials, labor and print off easy to read reports. Great software for the price since many other companies will charge much more and tend to be less user friendly. Great for specialty companies that have specific products they use because they will add any of your items to your special items list for you if it is not already in the program. This software is accessible where ever you go (compatible with google earth), so if you work from an office or work from the field you will always be able to get accurate numbers to your customers in a timely fashion.

Cons: It is a yearly subscription and also you have to pay per user per year

I've been using for 3 years. Could not be happier with this program

Pros: Easy to use interface and software is user friendly. Updates released every couple months just keep making it better.

Cons: Can't say there is a whole lot of things about this software that I don't like. I can't think of one thing I would improve on.

Overall: Makes estimates laser accurate. A+++++ product.

Pros: The ease of being able to use the software with little time to take getting used to it. Time is of upmost importance, and it took me no time to learn this program

Cons: Printing seems to be a bit more arduous than it could be. I would like to be able to print directly from the screen I am working on rather than having to populate a file to be exported for printing.

Overall: Time, time, time management.

Comments: I probably would have liked it better with better training so I was comfortable with it.

Pros: The interface seems (on paper) easy to use once you get to grasp the options. I love the cloudbased option because my company has issues with servers losing connections onsite.

Cons: The learning curve seems very steep. Drawings took a long time to load, switching between drawings also takes a long time. The reporting needs to be enhanced or modified to allow more updating by the user.

Our company has used this program for over a year now and it has simplified the takeoff process!

Pros: This software is easy to understand, quick and efficient. But most importantly the constant tracking of values that you are taking off is probably my favorite feature and benefits me the most.

Cons: I do not like the fact that on some browsers this software does not work as fast and/or efficient as other browsers do. I'm not sure why that is.

Pros: Stack is a great product for doing takeoffs efficiently and at a great price. The features that come with it are great, and they are constantly adding new ones.
I love the fact that you get immediate attention from the developers whenever you have a question or comment. The only thing better than their product it the customer service!

Cons: It can be a little buggy when using different browsers. If I remember correctly , I was using Firefox and had problems, they told me to switch to Chrome, and when I started getting comfortable with Chrome I started having issues and they told me to switch to Firefox! I currently use Chrome, and there can occasionally be a little bug here or there (ex. trying to select one of my items to edit - hint: use the multiselect!).

Pros: One of the many reasons I like to use this software would be to check measurements I've made on plans, especially in the case of trying to write up fully inclusive scopes of work for our vendors.

Cons: Cons for me would be more along the lines of learning everything the software does so I can more effectively use it.

Pros: Being able to download a set of plans and start doing Takeoff in just minutes is nice and keeps me from spending extra time in the office.

Cons: The print process isn't the easiest after you have created your own layout or design. Other than that I have been satisfied and will continue using this program

Overall: I was able to be more competitive with my bids and not waste time having drawings printed off and having to manually do takeoff!

Pros: The quick measuring and the scales are listed so you can chose which one you need. If you have any questions, the small icon is in the corner and the customer service reps answer your questions in less than 3 minutes.

Cons: If you miss measure, you have to go back and delete almost everything that you've worked on and start all over.

Overall: Less measuring time than physical plans. The customer can submit a bid and estimate quicker.

Pros: I don't have to waste time going to get blueprints and doing takeoffs anymore. Once you figure out how to use it, it makes things much less complicated and more accurate than doing by hand using a take off tool.

Cons: just getting to know the ropes is challenging. At first I was on the phone constantly asking questions because I would forget stuff or confuse myself or make a mistake I couldn't figure out how to fix

Overall: I will save money and time and I can provide better customer service now. I don't have to email to our reproprinter, wait for them to get printed, go pick them up, or get them delivered, then wait forever to my boss to get the takeoff to me, then send it to the customer, by the time I have the bid ready, we miss the bid date 85% of the time. We can provide much better turnaround time, especially when they are in a time crunch and need the takeoff done 911. I hate having to tell them, sorry I still don't have it, oh darn, I guess we missed our chance to bid your project, sorry!

Pros: It is so easy to use and makes visualizing our take offs 10000% easier. We can designate different colors for different materials and export to confirm install areas with our clients. Customer service is always very quick and attentive to any questions or issues and the updates have continued to vastly improve over the time we have used the software. This has changed how our business operates at every level!

Cons: In future updates, it would be nice to be able to paint over certain take off areas with patterns to demonstrate what will be installed (wood, tile, etc). This is in no way necessary, but would add tremendous value to how we communicate with our clients.

Overall: Time saved, enhanced communication with clients, and visual PDF output to ensure accuracy.

Pros: I like the fact I can get square footages off large diagrams quickly and efficiently so I can perform proposals for clients and prospects.

Cons: I can't think of anything if I have a question I call and get immediate support. Once they talk with me it's generally me forgetting something easy and they remind me.

Overall: I am able to get extremely accurate square footage's off large complex building diagrams for specific rooms etc... very quickly and then I can use this in my proposal calculations to respond to my clients and prospects quickly which is very important in our industry.

Cons: It won't allow me ability to figure rebar at the price I pay so always back to the old fashion way of running takeoffs at least for the rebar part. Can't really justify spending more just for that.
Can't print the page you are working on.

Overall: Time savings, Plus saved money not having to purchase paper plans. Can zoom in real close on things.

Pros: The clean look and intuitive nature of the take off.
Collaboration potential is huge. Connecting teams of preconstruction/estimating in larger organizations. I think you have only begun to tap this.

Cons: I'd like if it could tie directly into estimating software.
I understand why everything has a time component, but I don't like that you have to search the calendar for the project I am working on. Most of our projects do not have a firm due date.
An actual enterprise solution with multi users would be good without trying to sell a "seat" cost would make it more of a viable option. You want to have individual users for tracking purposes, but if we have to pay for each individual, that would make us keep our current selection of Blue beam
Comment - I don't know if it can but revision control would be great for both document and take off.

Pros: For me it has to be the speed at which it allows me to get through a large scale take-off. The way I can customize my labels makes it easy for me to separate areas and alternates for each individual project, and then sort them and pull information from with in those labels easily and quickly.

Cons: Not many Cons, but it would be nice to be able to use my delete key on my key board once I have takeoff highlighted versus highlighting the take off then going over to the menu bar and then taking the cursor down to the delete function. It would also be nice to hold down command/cntrl key and select multiple take offs to copy and or delete. Finally being able to highlight a takeoff area and change what that take-off is with out deleting it and re- drawing it, this would be a huge time saver for me when dealing with addendum and design team changes.

Pros: what I like about Stack is that it is easy to use and you can custom label the take offs and to enter it into a detailing estimating software.

Cons: The only thing I have encountered is that sometime when you are speeding threw doing take offs it will lag behind just a bit.

Overall: It makes doing take offs so much easier.

Pros: I love how easy STACK is to use. I literally can hop on my computer and generate a takeoff and reports of a pretty complex drawing within minutes. I don't have to calculate anything, as this software does the math for me. Additionally, I haven't had to ever use technical support for STACK because it's always live and working when I am, but there is always a button to talk to a representative present on the screen in case I do run into trouble. Another thing I love, is that it's online browser-based, and I never have to worry about saving anything. It automatically saves wherever I have left off on a project. Speaking of projects, STACK also allows one to organize different projects on it's calendar very easily, and things can also be edited/changed/deleted efficiently. Without STACK my job would be a lot harder, and take a lot longer. I'm not even sure that I've taken advantage of everything that STACK has to offer, but as you can see, I am thrilled for what I use it for. I am fairly new to this application, and career, but as you can see, I love it. I'm sure it has paid for itself many times over.

Cons: Sometimes STACK can lag a bit, but I'm willing to say that it has to do with some of the drawings/prints that I have had to upload there, and not necessarily the fault of the STACK application.

Overall: Generating accurate takeoffs and reports as an estimator, to get accurate pricing on materials for our projects is a main role of my position

Pros: In addition to being able to learn the fundamentals of the program quickly, there are many tutorials on You Tube which help to enable to use Stack even more accurately and efficiently.

Cons: It would be helpful to have both a vertical and horizontal scale, as this would allow to quantify measurements on storm profiles, and cut and fill profiles.

Overall: Our estimates are timely and accurate.

Pros: Just Inputting and using program to enter ships and drawings of ships in for each class of ship we are working on. once more jobs are entered would like to end up witha square foot to S data base so in futur we can ask how many sqare foot pf bilge in the AMR on a WMSL Class ship and wbhat did we charge as an average for painting by square foot. Now have Started to measure 2s square footage but have not seen or understand hoe to correlate that to job.
Much less how to enter it and pull it out to make a bid I supose that will come in time. First we are verifying what we have and then there will be more data base building from old and new bids as we go , including machinery and equipment needs to use and the material required. The we should be able ask " the customer want us to paint the forward bulkead in the bosn locke dark ble using xxx paint prepared to SSPC SP10 what will the cost be for bid... hpw much profit can we make and also what is the average marie rate for that.

Pros: It's easy to use and it keeps all your work available to pull back up at a later date. Everything can be color coded and made as simple or as complex as needed.

Cons: I am not a fan of only being able to log one computer in at a time. There should be a business version that allows for multiple users on the same login or all have access to the same plans downloaded.

Overall: This software saves us so much time in our bidding. We used to order paper plans and to take-offs the old fashioned way where there is much more human error. That usually took 30-45 min. This software allows us to do the same thing in just a few minutes.

Pros: STACK allows the user to import files of various types and is a great aid to the takeoff process. Solicitations for estimates and the files that come with it can be difficult to manage and with STACK we can keep everything together. The calendar is extremely helpful to an estimator working to deadlines as well.

Cons: Some features of the program are not user-friendly. Specifically marking up a takeoff lacks some features that are offered in other programs. Often times, my takeoff file is a JPEG or PDF of a Google Map...It is much more efficient for my purposes to use a simple Paint program. This marked up drawing becomes part of our contract by defining the areas but also becomes a sales tool in my case. Owners love the overhead view I can provide with the areas clearly marked out and specifications noted...Yes, I understand that STACK does the same thing, however, it just does not look as good and takes too long to achieve the final drawing.

Overall: File organization.

Pros: Its easy to use and helps process the bids a lot quicker when it seems to actually want to run properly.

Cons: Inconsistent. I'll create a wall and flip to another page and come back and the wall no longer exists on the takeoff after I just traced it. I'll create an area of polyseal and move it to locate something underneath it and the polyseal will disappear from the page. Seems as if there is a lot of small issues that need to be fixed. I will create a takeoff and type instructions into the box below and it will immediately delete what I just wrote. I try and pick a specific color and it refuses to make the color what I chose it to be most of the time and I have to go back in and edit it until it finally accepts what I'm trying to do. I would also like to see changes where I can cut out part of the lines that are traced instead of having to delete the entire traced wall. Similar to being able to cut out a boxed area. If I had the option I would give zero stars for the value for our money. We should not being paying as much with so many issues.

Pros: I like the takeoff and reports funstioms he best. The amount of time these save you compared to flipping through pages and pages prints, figuring out scales, doing calculations, make stack pay for itself very quickly

Cons: A few weird bugs here and there, rendudant commands at times. I feel like there could Be an easier way to flip through the prints. The page that shows little thumbnails of every page isn't very helpful because it is to small to read. A magnifying feature would really help there.

Overall: Saves me time, which allows me to submit more bids and increase sales. It also reduces the chance for user error. The support is great!

Pros: Ease of use and training. One of the easiest estimating software I've used. Makes estimating projects smooth and simple. The copy/Paste function is very helpful, as well as the tag function.

Cons: I come across bugs almost daily. Whether it's the copy/paste function not working properly, or the tag function glitching. There's rarely a day that goes by where I do not notice a bug.

Pros: All files remain for me to refer back to. I am able to do take offs on any files including those without a set scale or correct scale.

Cons: Cumbersome. Too many steps to get to the point where you are doing an area take off with a set scale. It can take up to 10 minutes before you are actually working.

Overall: Lowers stress and driving around looking for plans to measure.

Pros: Once you have all your partitions, assemblies and materials combinations set up, estimating time is easily reduced by 75-80%

Cons: The time that it takes to setup all the elements to works properly is really a bummer. Not that it would be easier with any other software, but I would've like to have the possibility to download the most commonly partition assemblies as an example.

Overall: My estimating time is reduced by 75% which allows me to focus on management more

Cons: Take-offs should allow for multiple selections once it's created without having to create a separate take-off for minor changes in data.

Pros: It's easy to stay organized and sort takeoffs to fit my needs. It's very easy to learn and to use. I really like the calendar on the beginning screen that sorts projects. I also like the geometry takeoff summary report that makes it very easy to see the measurement of each takeoff and to locate where each takeoff is at.

Cons: It glitches from time to time. And it usually takes multiple tries to upload plans 20 MB or more. Large projects are nearly impossible to upload unless each sheet is it's own file.

Overall: Makes me much more efficient at my job.

Cons: I have trouble with the zoom function. I try to zoom in and out like you would on google maps or google earth.

Overall: I really have only just begun to scratch the surface. I need to get some more training so that I can harness the softwares features. It would be great to have a user's manual or to have online demos. The customer support is great, but sometimes it would be nice just to reference the manual.

Pros: The best thing about this software is the ability to add items and assemblies to the takeoffs. I use Stack for landscaping estimates. When I have an irrigation system to install, I can add in the cost of each valve component and the labor involved as one assembly, and then do a take off counting valves. When I look at the item list in reports, which translates to a shopping list really well, it tells me the total cost for each item and assembly.

Cons: I would really like the ability to create a quick circle in the takeoffs. Also the annual cost is pretty steep. To add a user is the same cost, which seems absurd to me. We share and have to coordinate so as not to get bumped out while working.

Pros: I don't have a drawing/ drafting background. This was my first taste of material take off from a construction drawing. I like how easy it is to use and how I can collaborate online with the rest of my team who are in different cities.

Cons: I'm sure there is a good reason behind this but when you get an estimating software and see this at the bottom of a report, it just doesn't sit well with me "STACK Construction Technologies is not responsible for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of this report. Results are not guaranteed."

Overall: Saved me time which saved me money.

Pros: Cloud based

Cons: Can't have two people logged in at the same time

Overall: The software is easy to use and the Stack employees have always been there for me when I need help. They have several options to reach solutions to questions and that makes my life easy. There is telephone help, live chat and short simple video's to watch. I have been using Stack for nearly two years and thoroughly happy with the software. I am curious to learn about their services to perform take-offs but haven't yet had a chance to look into it. For my business it is key to have a cloud based software that I can log in to from anywhere.

Pros: Ease of use.

Cons: Tutorials cover to much info at once, hard to remember all of the information.

Overall: I have used a lot of estimating software over the years, starting in the 80's when estimating programs were in their infancy. I worked with programers in an effort to develop better, more user friendly software. After using the Stack Estimating package for a while now, I am very pleased with the ease of operation and quality of the results produced. It is very user friendly and has all of the features I need to put together a concise estimate.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it for a couple of months, as you learn how to use all of the features it will become more and more valuable to you.

Comments: Very user friendly, but did not like how it later required paid membership in order to estimate. The software should not have to require a paid membership. It was very inconvenient to not have access to our project on slack because we were not paid members.

Best investment!!!

Pros: I think it is user freindly

Cons: Nothing to dislike about the software, the estimating quotes seem to have no rhyme nor reason

Overall: Freind of mine introduced me to stack, thought it was the second coming of slice bread as the computer is not my thing and their take offs are great, first couple of jobs where in the ball park of what my friend paid, then I got quoted for a job , which was more than I expected but still worth me having the team at stack do the take off, have not used the service for six months, got calls asking what do we need to get your business, decided to get a quote on my next job, got quoted which was disappointing when you consider I ended up printing the blueprints and did the take off myself in under 3 hours. Would I renew my yearly subscription probably not

Comments: I was a little nervous when I first start using the Stack Takeoff because it was so different from what I was use to. However it was so easy learning how to use the Takeoff and now I would never go back to my old ways. Anytime I needed help from support they were always close by

Comments: I have been fortunate enough to carry many titles throughout my carrier as a certified and journeyman carpenter, on site Foreman, Project Manager, and Project Estimator. (All with the M.R.C.C. Union). I also have also owned my own construction company throughout the years.
So, with all being said, it is very important to me to know that i can rely on a program or system that i may be using for all my project print breakdowns and estimating. i have spent most of my carrier in this trade putting together bid packages the old school way, and it was the only way that i felt comfortable UNTIL now. recently i was introduced to the STACK Estimating program and i couldn't believe how quickly that i caught on and not to mention, the entire STACK team worked with me every step of the way with complete patients.
Now i cant imagine any other way to break down or simply create a take off from a project print other than using the STACK program. It saves soo much time and keeps everything organized for you and i am still learning because there is so much that this program can do. But it was designed so simple and easy to use. i just cant believe that it took this long for something like this to come out and be affordable.

Pros: Cloud based and simple to use.

Cons: I wish there was a hatch feature and the description window always seems to be interfering when I'm working.

Overall: I have used 10 different programs the past 20 years. Stack Takeoff is the best out there! It was very easy to learn and uses. The best feature that they have is a cloud-based program. There has been multiple times that I have worked from home and not needed my work computer. Thanks!!

Over all great.

Pros: cheap

Cons: miss some features from the old version. glitchy sometimes.

Overall: We have been using stack since it was cloud take off. Great value. i do miss some things from the old program like the magnifier glass that makes the take off you are looking for blink.

Recommendations to other buyers: buy it. its worth the value and they are always working on improvement.

Have greatly enjoyed working with Stack
