Pros: One of the biggest pros for us with ClearCalcs is that our engineers have access to the most current work templates. This is mainly due to the fact that ClearCalcs is could based as opposed to a downloadable program. We don't specifically need to employ IT specialists because the software updates on it's own. Team members have access to quick and efficient means to cooperate and finish tasks in short time. Organizational sharing on multiple formatted devices is another extended benefit.

Cons: ClearCalcs, on the whole, is great. I will say that there are a few small glitches that could be worked out. Once in a while we have to do a remote reset of the webpage. A positive to offset this would be that one can request certain things to be added on to the software package, and ClearCalcs attempts to assist in any way possible, sometimes even adding on your request.

Overall: Simplification is the end game here. ClearCalcs is able to easily channel somewhat difficult engineering mathematics while maintaining reliability and yielding few to no error. This allows the user to spend more time and energy focusing on decision making, and not equations. Overall the items are displayed as to how each sum was totaled and calculated and it also gives in-depth reasoning as to "why" the ratio is provided and what it represents in each case.

Pros: Rep and the team have been amazingly helpful, any issues are resolved almost instantly, faster than any other commercial calculation software I have used and they actually care.

The support team are here in Australia and Rep has taken the time to personally contact me to see what my needs were and how ClearCalcs could assist my engineering design.

The regular updates and Beta versions for upcoming are amazing.

I have been able to provide feedback on some of the features I thought would benefit my experience and Rep and the team have worked their magic to include them.

Its been a very rewarding experience and I should have found ClearCalcs sooner!

Cons: The only real negative is that when switching between calcs it does take a couple of seconds to re-run the numbers and provide the results. I'm not sure if thats just my internet connection, the servers or what. But considering I can really only nit-pick a 2-3 second delay when switching between calcs, the software is pretty flawless.

Overall: Faster design, more accurate design, easier to modify calculations, just all around better than a spreadsheet and hand calcs and significantly cheaper and more reliable than any other calculations software I have used.

Very easy to use, makes my work quicker

Pros: This software is very easy to use and makes doing many computations at once a breeze. The customer support is especially good as it seems any issues I have that arise are solved within only a couple of weeks. Seems to be a far superior product to other similars I've used in the market and appears to be improving much more rapidly than the others too.

The front end is also especially nice looking and easy to read and the cloud server makes it really easy to use from anywhere which is a major benefit over competitors.

Cons: The software is still missing a couple of features which would be nice additions but I imagine these will get added soon (for example I requested the option for T-Lintels to be allowed point loads and this got added in)

Capterra-loader

Simple and easy calculations for simple framing, extremely useful when engineering quickly.

Pros: All calculations are backed up in real time, and accessible anywhere. It is simple and easy to understand and there are explanations of what each of the available fields are used for.

Cons: This software is still in development and many of the features are not quite finished yet, but whenever I contact their support team I receive feedback quickly and they have even added features in after I have requested them.

Overall: Quick and simple engineering that is accessible and backed up.

Pros: Speed and no cumbersome model setup leads to increased design options and profitability.

The maths is all set out, so it's easy to follow when I get an usual result - usually due to an input error on my part.

Cons: I would like more calcs developed so I can get rid of my other software. Concrete columns, suspended slabs, beams and cantilevered block retaining walls would be wonderful to have. I know the team is working hard and the calcs are progressing well.

Overall: increased profitability

Very Pleasant, and efficient

Pros: Ease of use, and efficient templates make repetitive calculations a thing of the past. Also since its cloud based it makes access to calculations simple and easy.

Cons: I have noticed sometimes the software glitches and a page reset is needed, otherwise only 'crosses' are shown.
