ConstructConnect Insight

It is very well suited for finding projects where your product is specified, and I just use my company name. but, for other keywords, great.. and then it highlights where you are on the document that comes up. Also, it tells you how many times in the specific project documents it is found so you can find all of them.Not sure, but we're not sure how legal, or ethical, it is for the database to show contact names, phone and email addresses. We don't believe those people appreciate unqualified inclusion in company databases for marketing communication.. ie e-newsletters, etc.

Pros

ConstructConnect Insight

  • Great for large amounts of data.
  • Has great filters.

iTWO costX

  • Allows multiple users to work on the same estimate at once. This is huge!! Not only can we team up on a project that has a quick deadline but we can also simultaneously collaborate on database updates.
  • Performs your takeoff on CAD drawings or vector PDFs. Your typical takeoff software does takeoff on an unintelligent PDF. I say unintelligent because the process you go through is simply to trace the boundaries of your shape. This is time-consuming and can lead to mistakes. With CostX your cursor will stick to the line lines and takeoff the exact measurement. This has cut our takeoff time by 75%. The best part is that this is done in the same software as your estimating software. There are a few software's that have takeoff and estimating in one but CostX is the only one the provides CAD smart takeoff.
  • CostX is a lot like Excel. You have the flexibility to set up your workbooks the way your project team thinks. For example, ours is set up to evaluate labor in two ways; productivity (man-hours per widget) or crew hours (3 guys for two days for a given activity).
  • Reports are very flexible and the report writers is much easier than Crystal reports.
  • If you subscribe to the full version of CostX this provides the most powerful feature of them all......Auto-Revisioning. This function will compare two sets of drawings, identify the changes on a color coded drawing, ask for you to approve the changes and then update your estimate and takeoff. You can even use this to produce custom print outs for RFI's show your design team what changed.
  • Your estimating workbooks are live-linked to your takeoff. As you make adjustments to your takeoff your estimate updates accordingly. The workbook has color coded text to hep your team understand whats behind your estimate; Black = manually input, Blue = rates linked to database, and Green = quantity linked to take-off.
  • Full integrated subcontractor comparison. We use to do this in excel to compare multiple bidders across every division.
  • This is also color coded for a streamlined review process; green = quote, blue = estimate, purple = plug, and orange = other.
  • Built in error checking notifies you if you forgot to normalize an item on your subcontractor comparison.
  • In the near future the software will be available online allowing you to use remotely.

Cons

ConstructConnect Insight

  • I would like to see the Listing date for a project in the exported excel sheet
  • I don't know where to find it, but make available and easy to find and reference the search rules.. like using the AND, OR.. type of functions.
  • I don't like it that when you open up insight it defaults to an Updated Within level. I always have to remember to turn that off before I run my searches.

  • Display your cost element summary(labor, material, sub, equipment, other) before you get to reporting.

don't know, haven't used or even courted anyone else for this purpose. Found Reed years ago at ASHRAE/AHR expo, and started it with their pitch then and their good assistance since then.
