B2W Estimate

For larger-scale projects, using estimating software like B2W is perfect. The way you can break down your bid into multiple WBS levels helps organize everything in a structural way. You can see where the money is going to in certain buckets, and make adjustments accordingly to that specific line item.

PlanSwift

I use PlanSwift for all my projects - it has just cut my time by a major percentage when it comes to quantifying a blueprint. At times there are funky areas, which are just hard to calculate on paper. It also has a great tool for scaling according to the dimensions, so if a drawing is missing a scale, you can always allot a scale by giving directions and then marking the points. I use this tool to check the scale as well - sometimes the drawings say something but the scale if off and you are left with an incorrect take-off. The dimension tool is a good way to check that. We don't use it much for pricing purposes though, we have found other software which are more robust when it comes to estimation, but we can see using PlanSwift for pricing sometime in the future.

Cons

B2W Estimate

  • Better integration.
  • Crashes here and there.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

PlanSwift

  • If you go beyond the basic functions (linear foot & square foot takeoffs) it becomes very antiquated and not user-friendly. It's not intuitive whatsoever for users lacking backing computer knowledge.
  • The technical support is lacking in my opinion. The software feels dead, and the support team is hard to schedule. Also, if you do not pay for support per hour, it is impossible to get help.
  • Their training videos are limited and hard to follow. This software is unnecessarily hard to be proficient at. There should be more simplistic ways to utilize this software.

I have called once needing support. I was asking about the "compare" tool to compare different versions. They told be about their desktop app and I downloaded. They answered quickly, you could understand them, and they took care of my question

CostX was far too expensive. Vue360 doesn't have the functionality. Bluebeam Revu wasn't very intuitive and was all too hard to get it do what I needed. It was good for document control, but not very good for estimating.

  • The estimators' productivity is greatly increased, I do takeoffs in less than half the time with more accuracy and detail captured.
  • Easy sharing of what was taken off, I'm able to ensure everything is captured.
