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.

Pros

Love the layover feature in order to do changeorders. Also love the ability to have many screens open for the same project in order to look at details.

I only used Stack for a couple of days, but I really liked the ease of the takeoff tools. It was very user friendly to navigate.

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.

SW

Seth W.

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.

BB

Brandon B.

Cons

Terrible abominable customer service, unethical, dishonest thieves. Manager was the worst, she uses dishonest interrogation techniques to avoid any liability, fault and to escape offering any refund.

There also is no undo feature so when you make a mistake on a takeoff you have to delete it and redo the entire thing. There should be a ctrl z type undo feature.

I can't determine if its the software or the hardware of my laptop, but when I use it I find that the documents/image lags on medium to large files.

Reviewed 4 years ago

They are helpful and available. Still think that the price is high but seems comparable to others

Pros

Was easy for me to pick it up but had some experience with ProEst prior. I like the on the fly takeoff options and if needed one can get into the items and assemblies. Given the ease of use it has significant power in reports. There is always room for more but for now it seems to provide enough and again was easy to understand.

Cons

Lately there is a glitch with the plan naming tool and no resolution has been made or at least I don't know. If they have a fix they should have informed their clients...
