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.

Hippo CMMS

I have recommended to colleagues. It is well suited for a small to medium size plant or multiple plants. A very large company may not be a good fit due to some of the slight issues with reporting. It is very good with managing equipment, good at work order management, and good and spare parts inventory management

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!

I have had responses within minutes or hours whenever I have needed support. In the 3 years there has been only 1 issue that wasn't quickly resolved. The reporting feature was down for a few days on one occasion. The rest of the functionality remained. I use this software daily, and have made only a few contacts for support. Mostly at the beginning of my time with the software. They are easy to contact and offer quick solutions

Alternatives Considered

Project Estimator

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

Hippo CMMS

I can't remember the names of other computer maintenance software, but the main reason for the selection of Hippo CMMS was cost. Hippo CMMS came in much lower than the other CMMS' while still providing the same features and functions.

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.

Hippo CMMS

  • Allows tracking something that we did not have before
  • Decision making is now with hard data
  • Replacement and repair cost have been reduced with tracking of maintenance.
