    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 2 years 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.

    Reviewed 4 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.

    Difficult software to use and generated ZERO takeoffs for our office. We wasted nearly $6000!

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    If they offered a Free Trial, there is zero chance I would have purchased the software. Mid way through my ownership they rolled out the cloud based application of the software and it was garbage, lost of glitches, very slow response, etc. If they dont offer a free trial, there is no money back guarantee (not even 24 hours), etc., you should probably ask why this is their policy. Anybody can get a customer, only the best can keep them.

    Pros

    There was honestly nothing I liked. It was a very bad experience, not to mention lightened the company bank account by almost $6,000.

    Cons

    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. Setting the software up on my desktops was very time consuming and took their IT guys a few attempts. Its not as simply as downloading an executable, running it, entering the serial key and off to the races. The time investment was in the hours to set up PER machine. During demo is wasnt mentioned that building assemblies required programming of formulas to build the assembly.

    Excellent Software

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    I was looking for a powerful software that we could use to build a system for our estimating process. ProEst was exactly what I was looking for. We are able to build a custom database that we can use to quickly and easily estimate projects with accuracy and consistency. I am very happy with my choice.

    Pros

    Ability to create a custom database and can be used to consistently produce quick estimates. I love the onscreen take off.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to set up the database, but this is to be expected with any software. It is a lot of work up front, but then makes things more efficient on the back end. I would like to see a year off free tech support included to answer question about how to use the product. Most of it is intuitive, but there are somethings I would like to do, but it takes me a while to figure out how to do them. It would have been nice to be able to pick up the phone and quickly get answers for the first year while I learned how to use all of the features.
