    Constructware is well suited for many different types of projects in both real estate and infrastructure. However, it is now becoming outdated with the introduction of the BIM 360 platform. I think even Autodesk may plan to slowly stop rolling out subscriptions to Cnstructware since most of its functions are now getting added on to BIM 360.

    Quotesoft again is very well suited to any estimating department. I recommend a large screen monitor, but it's far more convenient than the old quick pen table or other methods. It's been great for jobs post mortem as well, we'll go back over as builds and make sure we captured and adjust estimates or change orders. It's also great for illustrating changes, and having all be very accurate.

    Pros

    Constructware (discontinued)

    • Provenance. Keeps track of changes and the people/companies who made those changes.
    • Collaboration.
    • Work [is stored] in the cloud.

    • Once you're over the learning curve, it's fantastic at getting accurate material takeoff. Because one is working off the real PDF prints of the project, it's very easy to get a good material list and takeoff.
    • Excellent for giving options of transitions and allowing the user to account for the actual 3rd dimension of the project by being able to click and add the sections needed to transition between floors.
    • The speed in which the user is able to takeoff is so much faster than traditional methods, and more accurate and easier to use than the other options on the market. Prints out great reports showing materials and hours, and lets you color code the systems while estimating so you know you aren't duplicating efforts.
    • Very flexible as far as how it adjusts for your desired estimate. You can identify per floor, side of the building, system, etc.
    • Allows for fast on the fly adjustments of sizes, materials and types of transitions with ductwork.

    Cons

    Constructware (discontinued)

    • UI can be improved, as shown by improvements made in BIM 360.
    • Only works well with Internet Explorer.
    • Steep Learning Curve due to confusing UI.

    • I'd prefer an 'all in one' as opposed to modules. I believe it's offered in that fashion but it was a touch more expensive. I was able to negotiate a footage takeoff tool for piping, to make it easier and more economical to our specific use, which is 95% dry side hvac estimating.
    • Would be great if it could be preloaded with Smacna or MCA factors for labor, and also would be great if there was a faster way to update material costs. You do need to stay on top of your material factors and make adjustments per the price of steel and other consumables. The industry has been stable lately, but if for some reason you were lax in updating labor and material factors, you could be off on the estimate. That's true of ANY software or even standard old school estimating approach.
    • It does require a dongle and a per seat license. The one drawback I don't care for, in a small company with tight cash flow, I do have estimators sharing the seat and scheduling takeoff around each other. Pretty standard though.

    Better than Unifier:1. Better UI2. Everything else is about the sameBim360 is now the go-to platform for all functions previously provided by Constructware.

    QuoteSoft

    We were looking at this, as well as quick pen, and other industry standard programs like Wendes.QuoteSoft was far more versatile, user friendly and has proven to be the right choice. No specific equipment outside of a bigger monitor, ease of use, and tech support as well as the online training aspect was fantastic. Felt well supported while we rolled it out.

    Return on Investment

    Constructware (discontinued)

    • Saves time.
    • Eases collaboration.
    • Increases accountability.

    • First positive impact is time saved. We're able with our small team to estimate..ACCURATELY far more projects, thus winning more projects.
    • Accuracy once we had our factors programmed is fantastic. It's tightened up our material and labor hours and made us more competitive
    • Definitely has had a great return on investment. Helping to land more projects out of the sheer amount of available time to bid more, as well as being more confident in material costs.
