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

It's been a welcome asset to our business, improving efficiencies and producing great quality, take-offs, plans, and drawings.
From day one the team has been an awesome help with an awesome solution that works out with great customer feedback.
Ease of use and I like how once plans are uploaded its so to zoom in and out of plans to read fine print. It also has cleared up the mess on my desktop making plans easy to find on the go.

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

Being an electrical contracting company, counting symbols off a plan can be tiring on the eyes as well as problematic if you miss something you did not see.
If your a Simpro user, Groundplan is a must as all your pre-builds are synced with Groundplan, so no double entry.
