    Pros
    Overall it is a great system, they have an awesome trainer that will work with you until you got it. Customer service is also real helpful.
    I have been using ProEst for the last year and have for the most part been very happy. The customer support has been very good.
    I liked that this software is very simple and easy, and we had free training sessions which was very useful. I also find the take off system and tools very powerful and the database is huge.
    Cons
    Terrible schedule program; visually unable to have clients and vendors understand it.
    I do have one complaint which may seem petty, but it is an annoyance.
    Building an assembly from scratch is so difficult that they now have someone in house that does this for their customers because its so difficult, think about that.

    ProEst is a Pro Software

    Reviewed 10 months ago
    Pros

    The most impactful features in ProEst are the formula variables and algorithmic equations you can used to rate your own assemblies. This allows the user to essentially create their own take off software within ProEst. Customization is amazing!

    Cons

    ProEst is cloud based. This means you can not use the program while offline; this may not be a problem to most people, however if you do not have internet or would like to work without an internet - you cant.

    iICON Const Procore Revirew

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Overall experience - I would rate the product 8 of of 10 for user capabilities. The scheduling program lacks tremendously; the estimating and couple other modules are completely unused, otherwise very capable program for managing vendors and clients. One of the better systems I have used (JE Edwards, Sage, Premivera, ect)

    Pros

    Vendor management, budgets, change events, change management, cost integration, document management, submittal processes, RFI processes

    Cons

    1, excessive separate modules rather than single page options as was 2017 version 2, lacks home page full client contact, lists only project info not people or their contact info 3, excessive message 404 errors and too much downtime on system 4, terrible schedule program; visually unable to have clients and vendors understand it

    Vendor response

    Thank you, Brian, for taking the time to review ProEst! We appreciate your feedback.

    Do not purchase this system unless they fix it, it is horribly slow

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    The software started off ok, I liked using it but they have done something and it is the slowest estimating system I have ever used now. If you need your days to be productive and don't want to watch wheels spin while it thinks then go elsewhere for your software needs. If you want to see a video of me opening a big job and what you can expect from ProEst. E-mail me at slowsystem1@gmail.com. I would guess my video will be different then the demo they will show you. but my video is reality

    Pros

    I like the system when it works correctly.

    Cons

    It has become the slowest system that I have ever used. and the developers can't seem to figure out what's wrong I only hear we are working on it. Which doesn't help an everyday user trying to do his job

    Estimating Software build from the point of view of the contractor

    Reviewed 7 years ago
    Pros

    The software is easy to understand and it truly meets and exceeds all of our expectation when it came time to turn in a bid . We are a building and design firm, the range of the work we bid goes from electrical, plumbing, HVAC to complete turn key. We appreciate the fact ProEst is constantly improving its functionalities and overall performance.

    Cons

    The issues we had over the years are the same issues we get with other software in our systems, updates sometimes fix one program but conflicts with others. Happy to said the issues were not critical nor catastrophic in our daily use of the program nor cause major delays in our bidding process.
