    Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    Pros

    Cosential

    • Inputting of companies and leads who may become prospects.
    • Creating specific opportunities for construction projects.
    • Tracking opportunities through the entire sales cycle.
    • Inputting detailed notes and activity by the Sales team.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    EstimateOne

    • Simple layout; very user friendly.
    • Preferred choice for a lot of vendors, which makes communication very easy.
    • The customer service team are proactive and return phone calls and e-mails promptly.
    William Choi | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Cosential

    • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
    • Report writing could be more intuitive.
    • The company seems to cater to larger users.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    EstimateOne

    • Could do regional areas rather than state-based, we are based in Northern Victoria and we find it useless to have to pay for NSW access. We are not interested in anything more than 150 km north of the Murray River on the NSW side.
    • Subscription could also be regional based, rather than just state based.

    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.

    Abby Tuong is an incredible employee who is EstimateOne. Her proactiveness, willingness to listen and help, and customer focus is second to none. With that level of support, it is no wonder EstimateOne has such rave reviews and is clearly the choice in the market.
