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

    Trimble Accubid

    Trimble Accubid is incredible for when you need to take your time and get a bid out for a job. It allows you to create templates and reuse a lot of information for future work. However, sometimes for a smaller job, it can be a lot of information to enter, which becomes time-consuming when on short time frames.
    Gavin Scott-Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    Trimble Accubid

    • Provides accurate NECA labor units for materials.
    • Keeps accurate costs of materials through regular updates.
    Jay Handleson | 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

    Trimble Accubid

    • While the tools provided are great, there could be more to allow more imaginative users to build their own.
    • The user interface is old and clunky.

    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.

    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.

    The training packets are thorough and they are easy to understand. Live support is harder to come by, however, I haven't had any major problems that I have needed to overcome. The best support is not needing to have support in the first place. Ease of use makes this mostly not an issue.

    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

    Trimble Accubid

    McCormick is an accurate estimating solution, but is far too bulky too compete with Accubid. Pricing reports and breakout options in Accubid are far superior to McCormick. McCormick's on-screen take off may be a benefit to some, but not worth the trade off of Accubid's robust suite.ViewPoint is a small contractor solution that cannot compete on the scale of Accubid.

    Return on Investment

    Cosential

    • Allowed for common tracking by business developers in different regions.
    • Helped us quantify effort.
    • Provides great reports for management.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Trimble Accubid

    • Helps produce more accurate estimates.
    • Allows us to break scopes out without having to re-perform an estimate.
