Cosential

Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.

EstimateOne

EstimateOne is well suited for subcontractors or builders alike to streamline the process of tendering on projects. It is a fantastic platform for anyone really, whether you are starting your business and need to build a client base or have an already established business and want to find more projects to tender on. It can be difficult at times to know where you stand after submitting a price, a strong follow up process or CRM is something you should consider before using the platform to keep track of key contacts and jobs you have priced.

Cosential is very intuitive for the AEC industry and has the ability to be customized for your specific needs. The reports are especially helpful, with good visual dashboards.

EstimateOne is easy to use, the user interface is designed to be simple yet functional - many other platforms I have used are much more cumbersome to navigate and don't offer as much functionality. Everything has been thought out well with EstimateOne - it seems to have been designed by people who have worked in the industry.

My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

EstimateOne Support is fantastic; whenever I have a question or need something done, it is almost instant. Wait time on the phone is almost non-existent every time I have called, and when I send an email requesting something it is generally followed up within a couple of hours. Can't fault their service yet!

Alternatives Considered

Cosential

Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

EstimateOne

We have used many other platforms, but none are quite as intuitive or have a clean and easy to use interface as EstimateOne. Our company uses BidContender, BCI, Procore, Aconex and many other platforms for tendering etc. I highly rate EstimateOne when it comes to looking for work and submitting tenders, it is by far the best for collaborating and keeping track of work.

Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

EstimateOne

  • Lead generation: 200%
  • ROI: TBC as our project timelines have been extended due to COVID.
