Quick Bid Feature Reviews

6 reviewers had the following to say about Quick Bid's features:

Vanessa Moffett

It has been difficult to learn, but it is getting easier the more I play with the program.

2017-08-08

Our company benefits with putting bids together faster and creating a proposal with the cost and scope of work there.

Pros

It also has Units of Measure that comes in handy when working on a bid. I also like that I can create a proposal and send a breakdown of cost for the material for each project or field.

Cons

The codes and sections are the most difficult. I have had to create different codes for the same type of material with different styles because the cost will not adjust to the style. Although there are Units of Measure there is not one for tons. And our company works with tonnage but substitute it with EACH.

More powerful tools available

2016-10-03

This software is a good tool to aid in estimating. There are more tools than we are really equipped to use.

Pros

Flexible for our needs

Cons

Getting help if something goes wrong requires putting in a help request and waiting for an appointment with a specialist.

Another let down customer

2016-08-19

Fairly dumb program in that to do a complete build up estimate you Either have to pay another 4K for quick bid or develop a excel spreadsheet and live link the data which is sometime temperamental .

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

Cost versus life span disappointing

Response from On Center Software


We apologize for your negative experience. Numerous phone calls and emails regarding the change from dongles to activation codes have been attempted but it appears that the phone number we have on file is no longer in service. Please contact Crystal Barger, Client Services Manager, to update your contact information and to upgrade to your free On-Screen Takeoff version that utilizes activation codes.

SHAME ON YOU - ¿ON CENTER SOFTWARE¿

2016-06-28

I tried my best to stick with them for over 20 years and remained frustrated the whole time.

Pros

I trained myself and never used any other programs so I cannot compare to others.

Cons

I had to make a report the BBB to get out of the $6000 upgrade cost.

We bought this software for estimating projects. It hasn't been the easiest for our company to use.

2018-01-18

Pros

After getting the proper training it is easier to use and there are plenty of videos to help if a problem arises.

Cons

You only get one license, it is very confusing if there is no training, it is not user friendly, the cost is very high and to maintain the software up to date is costly.
