Esticom overview

Esticom is a cloud-based estimation solution for the construction trades and in particular those projects around electrical and network cabling. Featuring core capabilities for handling material take-off and the accurate estimation of required material quantities and types necessary for a proposed project build, Esticom promises an intuitive take-off builder. The material and labor database is loaded with over 4000 pre-built assemblies, updated with the very latest price information and a real-time materials pricing check for Home Depot. Design tools are simplified with drag and drop operations, leveraging a database of AIA standard MEP symbols and the ability to draw legends directly onto plans.

Being cloud-hosted, Esticom can be accessed anywhere, from any internet enabled device, making the solution suitable for seamless office and field deployment. This centralized approach with automated job management capabilities also makes the software collaborative in the assignment of team member tasks, deadlines, peer reviews, approvals, floorplan highlighting, note sharing and much more. Users can create professional proposals and quotes that can be exported to Microsoft Word/Excel and PDF, while built-in analytics tools offer reporting and sales pipeline tracking options.

Review Source: Capterra

I am a low voltage estimator and have several customers. It is flexible enough for me to have all the various assemblies, rates, parts and reports that I can export out to my customers. In my opinion it is one of the easiest and most flexible low voltage software products on the market today.The ease of use mainly. After a few quick tutorials I was able to start doing my take-offs on screen. I created assemblies that made the job much faster and accurate.

I'm actually suprised that we've found a estimating software that does EVERYTHING that we need it to do.It's easy to use. We have gone from two to three days of putting together a bid to 2 to 3 hours. It's simple, clean interface, and the support is great. We've tested out 5 different softwares and this is #1 by far. Oh and it's web based so feel free to access it from anywhere.
