Pros: I love that it has all the cost for lots of remodeling tasks already in the program based on your specific zip code. If you do a wide variety of things it's really helpful because you don't have to guess on prices you should charge for trades you're not familiar with. It's also easy to edit your estimates and when you send it to your customer it's presented in a very professional way. It also integrates with Quickbooks for easy book keeping.

Cons: I wish BlueBook Pro Estimator had a mobile app. They have a mobile site but I find I always need to log in twice on my iPhone when I use it and that's a huge annoyance. I also wish the program had a scheduling feature as well as a way for clients to sign the estimate electronically. There is a way to "accept" or "deny" but the window for that pops up before they have viewed it so I've found clients think "accept" means just to view it, not that they agree to the contract

It's great for smaller companies.

Pros: We liked that it has its own directory that you can locate and contact subcontractors of different trades through. It's usually really up to date as well, so we like that feature a lot.

Cons: Not as collaborate and doesn't integrate with the estimating software we now use. That was the primary reason that we switched.

Estimating software that is very user friendly.

Comments: Once I was able to generate an initial bid. It was all downhill from there.

Pros: Being customizable is the biggest thing. Being able to access everything on the cloud helps me when I'm in the field. After that, the cost is a big plus with the boss.

Cons: I don't have any real cons. Our super sometimes has problems looking at things on his Surface while in the field, but I think that might be a connection problem.

Good Program, Accurate and Detailed

Pros: Program is accurate and detailed in marking up plans and accessing RFIs that are built into plans. Edits are also easy to use.

Cons: Can be a bit hard to use, the free trial is also very very limited. When you are provided invites to plans from someone that uses this it is again very limited.

Great software- saves me hours a week!

Pros: Very very easy to use, saves me so much time in a week it gives me more time to get more work. Anything that does that is aces in my book! The Rep explained everything thoroughly and made sure I knew how to use it.

Cons: Would like to see a little more options for marine type work that I do. I'm sure it's coming, but niche services would be greatly appreciated!
