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.

Pros

The company and people are fantastic and are certainly head in the right direction with a lot of great ideas.
I can now keep up with all quotes & take offs, time is saved massively. Not too mention I can attach all my contracts and save all my templates from all my suppliers, I love it.
My business management has improved and able to stay on top of my estimates, its ease of use. Professional quotes which make you stand out to others.

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.

Cons

I had try to learn and use for long time but it was waste money and time and customer service annoyed enough to make me crazy.
When you want to cancel your account and unsubscribe they can stall you.
The variation function is limited at times as you cant use recipes to price them up quickly.
