Pros: This software is only limited by your own imagination. Estimator 360 is packed with features, but when I have any kind of problem or think that something is missing I just send a quick message to Paul or Chuck. They have been so fast to add new features when needed and to nicely point out where I have overlooked features that are included. They are a 10 on a 1-5 scale!

Overall: Estimator 360 is cutting our estimating time in half, and as we learn the system we expect to further reduce our time from lead to job start.

Unbelievable customer service- follow up. Proactive in seeking feedback. Serious about my success.

Pros: Well constructed by a real world user....their company commitment to help you succeed by modifying elements for your needs is refreshing. The fact that the software design is flexible for the user-an actual contractor who uses his own product and-"gets it" shows the careful thought and commitment to excellence.

Cons: I think that any cons in regards to this software are simply related to the age of the company and not any theoretical limitations. The flat-form will adapt to any user needs.

Overall: Tremendous value for very reasonable cost.

Overall the software is great. The more I use it the easier it becomes to use, it is a great.

Pros: After I use it a couple of times it remembers the cost from past proposals completed. So, I am not always starting over from the beginning.

The proposals I create need to be broken down by different areas, this is the perfect software for this.

Cons: It is new to me, hard to start with something new, as always. It just takes a little effort to learn the software.

Absolute best overall estimating, scheduling and project management solution. Period.

Pros: Automatic scheduling based off cost data
Different approach to quantity take off
customer service
Flexability

Cons: Still work in progress

Overall: These guys are great! They¿re doing what every program out there should¿ve been doing all along. They are taking cost code data in time (hr) format to automatically generate a production schedule on a calendar so you can visually see what should be happening and when. This allows human resource allocation to be much more efficient which of course saves money! This to me has been something I¿ve searched hi and low for and promises have been made by other companies but none have delivered until now.

Customer service is top notch, need something answered? They¿re on it within minutes. They have years in the industry both on the computing side and actually running their own construction companies, not to mention their programmer is a coding ninja! I had an issue where I needed a certain feature and they put it into the program within minutes just for me, that¿s customer service!

You can upload blueprints or your own chicken scratch drawings into the program, it doesn¿t matter as you can do takeoffs quite easily once you input a few simple dimensions. Gone are the days where I need to point and click a million different points on a blueprint to get accurate quantity takeoffs. Sometimes my projects simply don¿t have blueprints as in the case with a simple interior remodel where none are required.

They still have work to do and they have some great plans for very useful features such as quickbooks integration, crm, etc. which makes this the perfect time to jump on board as they take requests for features very seriously. I highly recommend this program to get and keep your company organized and profitable.

Exactly what I was looking for.

Pros: Ease of usage, Management features, Web base, Nice views, Product support team

Overall: Estimator 360 is the product that I was looking for. I was in need of a estimating system for my construction company that could produce a estimate quickly and easy to use. Estimator 360 has filled the quest. I now can produce a construction estimate for a client in minutes with many management features consisting of, estimate to signed contract, Job in progress, time management is just naming a few.
Estimator 360 is the first program that I open in the morning and the last program to close at the end of the day at a day to day basis.

Pros: Intuitive design, simple system, always growing and being refined.

Cons: I would like to see employee timesheet tracking added.

Overall: We are a small custom remodel and construction company. We started looking for a new software solution for bidding work last year. We tried about half a dozen different options over a couple of months and two very seriously for about four months. In the end, Estimator360 won our business very easily. The design of the system is very intuitive and easy to learn. My favorite part of the system is the way it walks you through each part of the project, from project services to demo to the building/construction/finishing of each part of whatever project we're bidding.

The other reason we decided to go with Estimator360 is the people behind it. They respond almost instantly to questions. Whether it's a question on how a part of the system works or if it's a specific material or brand of product we need added, they have offered incredible customer service from beginning to end.

Recommendations to other buyers: The developers and crew behind it offer an incredible level of customer service and are always adding to and growing the system.
