Pros

My overall experience with Esticom has been wonderful. Having a tool that is so easy to use has let us focus more on how to improve our estimating rather than on how to use our software.
I do recommend this to whoever is in need for big projects. I do like the idea that you could change colors when estimating for easy understanding.
Cloud based - I can estimate and track projects on any computer wherever I have a good internet connection. Economical - Low monthly or annual costs allow a great ROI.

Pros

The customer service is absolutely amazing and better than any company I have ever worked with. The App in itself is brilliant and is so easy to use I would recommend this to anyone.
I love that they are paying attention to what I am doing constantly and suggesting ways to improve how I'm doing it.
It's really great that it puts all the information into a nice, neat Excel spreadsheet so I can easily add my costings and work out my prices.

Cons

Sometimes when using this software to do bid management it can be confusing.
The price is a little high and dependency to internet access could be a problem sometimes.
I'd say the two small things that bother me most are. Not being able to add one-time-use items to the estimating section.

Cons

Autocount is somewhat unreliable so have to check very closely for any missed items, this however does not take long.
I was dubious how well this product would work and how accurately the software would find the symbols for my electrical drawings.
It requires the use of a dropbox which might not always be practical in companies which have limited internet browsing.
