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.
Easy to use - great customer service and integration with buildertrend. Great way to track jobs and estimates.

Pros

My overall experience with Esticom has been wonderful. Having a tool that is so easy to use has let us focus more on how to improve our estimating rather than on how to use our software.
I do recommend this to whoever is in need for big projects. I do like the idea that you could change colors when estimating for easy understanding.
Cloud based - I can estimate and track projects on any computer wherever I have a good internet connection. Economical - Low monthly or annual costs allow a great ROI.

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.

Cons

Sometimes when using this software to do bid management it can be confusing.
The price is a little high and dependency to internet access could be a problem sometimes.
I'd say the two small things that bother me most are. Not being able to add one-time-use items to the estimating section.
