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.

It is good in my mid-sized environment. It would probably work well in a small business. Not sure about a large or multi-location business.

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

iOFFICE

  • It is very good at plotting out office seating.
  • We also use it for mail and package logging and notification and tracking.
  • It is very useful in creating seating charts and floor plans.

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!

iOFFICE

  • The thing I would like to see is the ability to add the office or room dimensions and plot out seating such as in conference rooms.
  • The version I have requires me to have to contact the company rep to make changes to the configuration in the software.

Alternatives Considered

Project Estimator

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

This was recommended to us and the only package we considered.

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.

iOFFICE

  • It has given us the ability to track package delivery and require employees to sign using an electronic signature.
  • It automatically send an e-mail notification to the package recipient and also reminders if the package is not picked up and taken out of the system.
