Pros
I have extensive experience creating takeoff assemblies inside the program and have been pleased with the ease with which it can be done. Creating reports seems non-user friendly.
The features are very good, it has great reporting features and different ways of presenting the cost, for much easier analysis.
Another great pro is the support staff from Beck Technologies -- the best customer service I have ever had from a software company.
Cons
Another complaint we receive often is how it is inefficient needing to open/close multiple windows in order to add, modify and copy assemblies.
Don't really have any, just the internal struggle to keep up with their releases.
Additionally, we ran into a lot of issues with crashing when our department first began using estimator, due to this many of our estimators are still hesitant about using the software.

Extreme Flexibility

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

The ability of the product to easily mold to your company’s estimating database to the program. Most other programs are exceedingly difficult to manipulate.

Cons

Inability to easily bulk update information across all estimates without having advanced knowledge of SQL (I.e. meta data, WBS nomenclature, “data cleanup”).

Leading Edge Estimating

Reviewed 2 years ago

Implementation takes time. They don't offer a canned out of the box database for costs or assemblies. So be ready to bring your own or build from scratch.

Pros

Beck-Tech has a tremendous support team to help with issues, bugs and general how-to's. The flexibility of the software allows the user to bend it to his/her will. We especially enjoy having all our estimates in a single database for quick resourcing of historical costs and enterprise level collaboration.

Cons

Not sure it's a Con so much as a point to before purchasing: because Beck-Tech is a leading edge software developer changes in the software are frequent (2-3 times per year). This means your team had better be comfortable with adaptation and pushing the limits of software.

Vendor response

Jan! We appreciate your review of DESTINI Estimator! It's great to hear that you've found lots of value and help from our support team. Continuously innovating our product is a goal of ours and we appreciate the feedback on how to enhance the process on the customer side! -Beck Technology Team

DP Review

Reviewed a year ago

Help desk is great. but seems when we fix one issue another one comes about. consist battle

Pros

Takeoff and estimator is in one location not two software's

Cons

Takeoff is terrible, not user friendly, terrible product compared to actually takeoff software, estimate version is not user friendly, change production in two places, same line items dont roll up (even with the toggle roll up). Importing rates with modified crews all screws up. Consistently finding destini glitches

Vendor response

We are excited to have improved our takeoff capabilities with our most recent version update. Thanks to feedback from our clients we can now provide capabilities that exceed anything on the market today. We also streamlined the versioning process and greatly improved the performance while we were at it. Please connect with our Support team to see how you can get the update. We have more takeoff improvements in the works, too! You are correct that our takeoff capabilities are not like other takeoff platforms because we are working diligently to streamline the entire estimating process. We are always eager to connect with our users on how we can constantly improve our products.

Destini Estimator Review

Reviewed 3 months ago

Using Destini Estimator has overall been a positive experience. The customer success and support teams are fantastic. They are also working on expanding and developing the product. The BIM 360 integration is what we are most excited about in the future as this tool is increasingly used and as architects continue to develop their models. The new automatic pricing feature makes the software more intuitive and reduces the number of steps needed to perform takeoff and automatically link the takeoff to the line items in the estimate.

Pros

The automatic pricing functionality makes takeoff and pricing easy to gather quantiles from the plans and link to the estimate line item costs. The ability to break down an estimate into different scopes, phases, alternates and base bid or any number of scenarios using the WBS features. The BIM 360 tool is one of the most impressive features and the ability to pull quantities for the estimate from the model.

Cons

Onsite deployment is cumbersome and spotty. I would recommend the cloud base solution. The challenge with cloud based deployment and use is you loose connectivity if your internet connection goes down. The takeoff software needs additional functionality with takeoff tools similar to more mainstream products.

Destini Estimator

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great Service, they need more program developers

Pros

The features are very good, it has great reporting features and different ways of presenting the cost, for much easier analysis. Great 3D takeoff features but if you are in early stages of design you can't only rely on BIM models. You can't allow your estimate to be as good as your BIM model

Cons

Implementation needs to be more standardized, the support and implementation teams have done everything they can but the development of the program is lagging. 2D takeoff must be greatly improved. There has to be a simpler way to build assemblies. No available online tutorials. Need realistic set in stone dates for releases of required updates

Vendor response

Carlos, Thank you for the 5 star review of DESTINI Estimator. We are glad to hear that you've enjoyed the service from our team and 3D takeoff in DESTINI Estimator! We've relayed your feedback to our implementation team. Also, the upcoming version release of DESTINI Estimator will include major enhancements to our 2D takeoff capabilities. Stay tuned for more information! -Beck Technology Team
