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.

Quire

Quire implements the concept of Kanban boards to give companies the ultimate control of the workflow. With
Quire it is pretty easier to create a personalized sub-list. To-do list is the plus point for managing the overall task before assigning the task details. Attaching files, setting up assignees, due dates all can be done with a single click.

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!

Quire

  • As Quire lets you to assign priorities, and delegate tasks, the entire process seems confusing.
  • You need a little extra knowledge to cope with the Quire environment.
  • Spotting the obstacles with Kanban boards is much of a hectic job, unless you are a techie.

Alternatives Considered

Project Estimator

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

Quire

Quire is completely different than other competitive platforms, as its comes with no price tags, the pricing for Quire is free and can be used without any charges.

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.

Quire

  • There has been a lot of time saved
  • Overall clarity
