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 suitable for processing leads, transferring information to members, tracking the conversion and communicating with colleagues. Unfortunately, all these functions, although implemented in this product, but implemented little. It is very inconvenient to work with the leads of both me and the managers

Pros

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

  • IP-telephony - this feature is beautiful and helps collaborate and communicate better.
  • This software can be accessed anywhere on a cell phone just by having the mobile application.
  • It has project management. It has call management. It allows for creating custom fields. It has an option to self-host.

Cons

  • 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!

  • Interface - it currently *feels* amateur; I am sure that it's not, but the lack of customisation means that we can't improve it.
  • Time Reporting - time entries can only be logged in real-time, not post-hoc.

Alternatives Considered

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

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

  • 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.
