    Pros
    The amazing feature of this project is the links which help you to reach your project up and downs in seconds.
    Access to help (have built up a good relationship with the reps over the years & have always had excellent service).
    I have work with Candy more then 9 years. It was very good for the tender pricing works and also latest updates versions are very help full.
    Cons
    Earlier our business used to suffer because of lack of resource planning and accurate estimation process.
    Its hard to undo stuff if you have changed it accidentally.
    The only concern I have with candy is that if an error is made it is not easily correctable.

    Candy - The Estimators friend

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    For us as a Civil Construction company Candy is helping us be more efficient with our time and money. To follow the process of a project with time and money is really helping us achieve our goals in a project. Doing a quick course in Candy does help a lot in understanding the program. What is also very efficient is if you priced an item once, the data is in your program and you just use the specific code to price the item. Overall I think Candy is a great Design and very effective and I will definitely recommend it to other Construction companies.

    Pros

    What i really enjoy about Candy is the time you save by pricing on Candy. Once your Candy is set up and running with you Master file, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3!!! Being able to load your Subcontractors on Candy and having them there is your best friend. Doing a program by using your information of your priced Bill of Quantities and being able to follow your cash flow all in one place is just brilliant and very efficient to you as Contractor, Quantity Surveyor, Site Agent and Estimator.

    Cons

    If you don't have a Master File to work from and you need to build your own Master file, then it can be quite a nightmare. Getting a Master file from another construction company and changing it to your standards and way of pricing and working is the easiest way to go.

    Sweet and Satisfying: A Review of Candy Construction Estimation Software

    Reviewed a year ago

    Overall, Candy is a great construction estimation software. It's easy to learn, user friendly, and provides accurate estimates quickly. It's also packed with features and options, making it suitable for a wide range of construction businesses.

    Pros

    Candy's intuitive and user friendly interface makes it easy to learn and use. The software's automated processes save a lot of time, allowing me to quickly create accurate estimates. The comprehensive help documentation provides detailed instructions and troubleshooting advice, making it easy to find answers to any questions that arise.

    Cons

    The software can be slow and unresponsive at times, and the help documentation is not always up-to-date with the newest features. Additionally, some of the features are difficult to find in the interface and require a bit of searching to locate.

    Vendor response

    Old and outdated

    Reviewed 8 years ago

    Horrendous user interface. Old, convoluted software, stuck in the nineties. Costs an arm and a leg, and requires extensive training before it can be used.

    Best Project Management Software

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I am using Candy to do simple project management programs.

    Pros

    Candy is a very powerful and very user friendly project management software where so many software such as MS Project, Oracle Primavera tries to be the leader. Out of all these products I like Candy because it is very easy to handle and less complicated. Price is also lower than the Primavera.

    Cons

    Candy is still less popular software when compared with other project management software. But Candy is moving fast towards the bigger market. So files needs to be compatible with other management software.

    Vendor response

    Dear Thehani, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Your valued feedback is very important to us. With regards to compatibility, please be aware that programs created in Candy Planning Module can be exported to other planning tools like Primavera / MS project in "xml" format, similarly we can do an import into Candy from other planning tools in "xml".

    Great Software

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    If you have the right input, then Candy is the best software to translate your inputs into priced job with great analysis and review reports

    Pros

    This software is made by people who practiced estimation, they took care of everything you may think about while pricing including the inputs and analysis reports.

    Cons

    I believe we must have the UNDO options in the coming versions.
