Pros

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.
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.

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

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.

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.
