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

Illumine was easy to use and very convenient. I love that I can communicate with the school efficiently and effectively.
Overall is is great , good initiative to consolidate all of the schol information at one place. In short this is like an ERP system for schools.
Also a lot of followups on emails, SMS are saved by using this product. The experience has been great and their support team at times has gone out of their way to help.

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

It can possibly do something more on the live interaction feature adding; at the moment as I know it’s all about posting content but no live interactions are there.
Need Internet connectivity which may be difficult when Internet is not available.
Doesn't show the history of comments on assignments; should enable feature to have 1:1 chat with teachers to clarify doubts.
