Pros: Which was totally a wrong decision. Cos this is the best estimating software that I have ever used. I have experience utilizing different estimating software but Chief is the most user friendly one. The functions are very handy and the reports are incredible. Most of the other software transfer the result of the estimate as a dump sheet to Excel, but Chief has a high intelligence to make the best reports directly into Excel and you don't need to work on that Excel file with different functions like VLookup or Sumifs as Chief is already did for you .

The other valuable advantage of Chief is the resource file which is created by the developer with more than 40 years of his experience of different construction sites and projects.

The data is really reliable and easy to update.

You can easily transfer your WBS or even a complete BOQ with a tree view format into the software and start to create your estimate as fast as you want and save a lot of time.

Cons: Maybe it needs a little bit work on the feature of the software to improve the visual aspect of the software.

Chief Estimator, it is one of the best program to work with and it is very versatile.

Pros: Easy to learn just by looking at the tutorials. I like how easy it is to create estimates, change labour costs to suit your country. Import or export files into excel and back and the accuracy of the program, plus it is got many different languages that it can be used with. The customer support is very, very helpful.

Overall: Enormes time saving.

Very simple yet powerful.
