Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Corrigo

Corrigo is great for managing work orders and PM Schedules. Additionally, if you need to track KPIs, Corrigo's reporting is spot on—with automated reports and notifications, it is one of the strengths of this program. I don't recommend Corrigo for Asset Management, however, which is tricky since the PM Scheduling is such a strength.

Pros

Project Estimator

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

Corrigo

  • KPI Reporting: there are some great canned reports that you can utilize but you can also build your own reports using their very simple report writer.
  • Report Notifications: you can set up automatic notifications for reports. Additionally, you can set up schedules for your reports and attach notifications to those report schedules as well.
  • PM Scheduling: you can automate your PM schedules thru Corrigo and set up multiple schedules.

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!

Corrigo

  • Asset Management: for such strong PM Scheduling, I would like to see better asset management within this product.
  • Managing users: his isn't the most intuitive process and could be simpler.
  • Support: once they get back to you, they can be very helpful but I find the wait time is too long.

Alternatives Considered

Project Estimator

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

Corrigo

We chose Corrigo for the PM Scheduling and Reporting capabilities plus its ability to integrate into other systems and provide a customer portal. This product is superior to others for those reasons. Plus the cost is on point for our size organization. Overall Corrigo was the better choice.

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.

Corrigo

  • It has helped us automate processes with multiple clients, making us (and them) more efficient
  • PM Scheduling and Reporting has saved us time and resources
  • We've had to figure out a way to manage assets however since Corrigo isn't really great for this. That has cost us extra time and resource.
