Project Estimator

If you are considering purchasing this (very expensive) software, there is a 100% chance you are doing so because you have been awarded a Government contract that dictates you use 4Clicks Project Estimator. There are plenty of easier to use estimating packages out in the world, but you can't use any of them if you have a contract that requires 4Clicks.

Bitrix24

Bitrix24 is well suited for any organization that needs a project management tool that can grow with them. I cannot stress this enough! This software works for startups and large organizations! That's important considering the learning curve, and the amount of time that it takes to set up a company-wide software. The software is set up to support all internal teams, as well as have folders/tasks specifically for dedicated teams (ie- executives, marketing, etc). The approvals process also helps managers to track each step of the way.Bitrix24 may not be well suited for an organization that is looking for a quick-to-use, temporary project management solution. Its layout is very detailed and requires a commitment to not only learn how to use but to manage. This may not be great for someone who is looking solely for a task manager.

Pros

Project Estimator

  • The estimates it produces are simple and easy to follow. The formatting is good.
  • The tech support provided is very attentive.
Tim Corbett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bitrix24

  • Huge opportunities for customization, integration with other services. Easy search for solutions to setup questions.
  • The ability to write letters directly from the system with the help of a binding for working mail.
  • The presence of an application for Android. This helps to get access anywhere.

Cons

Project Estimator

  • The software feels 20 years old. It has not kept up with modern times, and practically functions like an old DOS program.
  • Clunky interface, arcane commands.
  • Even their training info focuses on hotkeys like this is 1995. Even though I am of an age to remember computers in 1995, the younger generations of managers/estimators are not. It is time to bring the software into the new century!
Tim Corbett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bitrix24

  • Malfunctions
  • System impediments of leads
  • Technical support is not competent
  • No sync with mobile app
  • Confusing interface takes time to sort out
  • For the sales department, the system is badly sharpened - managers do not need to enter information in 2-3 clicks

Alternatives Considered

Project Estimator

WinEst uses much the same database (RS Means/Gordion type) and has a similar interface. It is a bit cheaper.
Tim Corbett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bitrix24

Bitrix stacks up beautifully and goes beyond others in certain features. Just like any other software it has its own pros and cons but overall is an excellent software to work on if it can satisfy majority of your needs. Overall it can do very well with just a few minor improvements and more exposure in the corporate world.

Return on Investment

Project Estimator

  • As stated before, if you are buying this software, it is because you have a contract forcing you to. While it does work, it is clunky, awkward, and very expensive.
  • The price of the software and databases has always been high, but with the fairly recent acquisition of 4Clicks by Gordion (who also bought RS Means for their databases), there is literally no competition. Prices will continue to be very high, with no check on how high they can go.
  • Again, can't fault 4Clicks tech support, as I think it is the best in the industry. They know their product and they respond to issues immediately. Considering what we spend a year for this product, however, you would expect nothing less.

Bitrix24

  • Positive impact: very easy and fast deployment on cloud version. Very low investment to set up and start to use. Chance to test the product before start paying to use it.
  • Positive impact: ease of use and intuitive system (no need to train users to perform basic tasks). People started to obtain benefits very quickly.
  • Positive impact: free version up to 12 users/low price for additional users and/or other paid packages.
