I would think that any service or construction outfit could utilize this software effectively.

TurboBid

TurboBid is well suited to serve as an on-premise estimating software solution for small and midsize contractors. The type of work associated with the project may include new residential, light commercial, remodeling, service work, flat-rate pricing, or just about any application! The software is less suited for large contractors that may wish to communicate information within a network domain.

I would give it a ten, but I had a bad experience with a support person the last time I called, so I'm lowering it to 67%. I am 100% satisfied 2/3rds of the time when I contact support

I dealt with one individual and the owner. After making me feel stupid for not being able to get an up to date price list from my suppliers, they decided to try. There were unsuccessful as well. The right thing to do would have been to refund my money, but they refused to do that. I was lied to and basically called a liar on many occasions (including in emails). I have never had an experience like this with a company before. Most of the other companies guarantee their products and would refund your money if something was wrong, didn't work or you were unsatisfied. Not this company! They could care less once they have their money.

Esticom

I believe Bluebeam Revu has several more bells and whistles compared to Esticom. However I believe the simplicity of Esticom was its biggest selling point to me. It is extremely easy to use and even easier to train others on how to use it. I also believe it has a better price point.

TurboBid

Turbo bid is perfect for small and midsize contractor users in need of estimating projects. The software comes with excellent customer service and is easy to understand program navigation within a short period of time. The program goes into extreme detail with many capabilities for accounting and estimating. For example, the software has the ability to calculate the material installation time, which not all program competition can do.

  • It has allowed us to adjust any aspect of a quote and thus become more profitable.
  • This platform is far more organized than we previously were.

  • It cost me money for the software that I will never get back.
