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.

TickTick

TickTick works well for personal use - managing daily and/or recurring to do's through a variety of lists. These can be renamed as needed. This has contributed to an increase in the completion of projects for me. TickTick also works well for collaboration on a list by list basis. Say that I have a project at work that I need to work with a teammate on - I can create the list and share it with my teammate. From there we can tag-team the project. There is the option for adding to-do lists inside of a top-level list and areas for commenting by the collaborators. This allows us to bypass unneeded meetings or emails to remember what needs to be done next on the project. TickTick may be less suited for situations where photos or files need to be shared for a project or for more complex project 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!

TickTick

  • The task reminders are in the form of a notification - it would be nice to have an email option.
  • All tasks due on the same day/time show up as one notification versus separate - this can be hard to separate as far as task planning goes.

In all honesty, we have never needed to reach out to TickTick for support.

Alternatives Considered

Project Estimator

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

TickTick

In researching options for our task manager, we chose to use TickTick because it was the most user-friendly. The platform made sense to us, is intuitive to use, is affordable for our needs, and has "smart" features that make our jobs easier. Trello is a great program and has the option for lists and things, but wasn't best suited for what we needed. There are a lot of other great features that Trello has that we don't need so chose to stick with a simpler program. We found Todoist after implementing TickTick and it looks like another great program but didn't have other things that we needed so we didn't consider switching.

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.

TickTick

  • Our spaced out, recurring projects are getting done ON TIME instead of sporadically or not at all.
  • Our team is 20% less stressed about tasks because they are reminded of tasks and projects that need to be completed, instead of going off of memory. This has increased morale.
  • Ideas for business development are remembered and implemented more frequently because we have a place to write them down - instead of talking about them once and forgetting about it altogether.
