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.

The main issue I have had is in the customization after the first login page. I would like to be able to customize subsequent pages by each type of visitor (student, employee, guest, etc) wherein based on their visitor type, they are presented different options that open below or on subsequent pages. For example, if a student is checking in for a skills practicum course, they should be sent to a page where they can choose from a pre-set list of available courses, then when they select the course, they then see a list of the instructors for only that course. An employee, however, would not necessarily see all of those options or might see them in a different order.

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

SwipedOn

  • Great example of innovation for visitors to the business. We often hear remarks from visitors how impressed they are.
  • Simple yet effective method for employees to sign in out.
  • Simple administration tools to add/remove employees.
  • Information can easily be extracted into Excel.

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!

  • Kiosk mode doesn't work well. iPad frequently goes into "Sleep" mode regardless of kiosk setting.
  • Connection to printer via WiFi isn't great... loses connection frequently. Bluetooth works awesome!

Alternatives Considered

Project Estimator

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

SwipedOn is in a different league to this and we found it to be better for our needs.

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.

  • Increased security and visibility around visitor comings and goings in our office
  • Improved guest check inexperience.
  • Searchable visitor logs stored in the cloud as opposed to paper.
