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.

Celoxis

Celoxis is an extraordinary PMS, no doubt. I like that they keep the rundowns and reports basic yet still amazing. It is agile in light of the fact that it utilizes message instead of a lot of illustrations impacts and so forth. You can create a wide assortment of reports. It includes free customer entries which my customers love. It has an exceptionally ground-breaking highlight where you can characterize your own application with its very own work process, custom fields and so on. It has a trigger system too to change conditions of applications when reactions are given, which is extremely valuable.

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!

Celoxis

  • Support is at times slow to respond.
  • Not new user-friendly.
  • Not able to pull in closer or zoom the interface.

Alternatives Considered

Project Estimator

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

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.

Celoxis

  • Management has been easier with little need to hire more help.
  • Accounting and tax returns.
