This is great if only used for job costing.

Trimble
For drawing plumbing where you are usually not needing any kind of taps it does really well. Once you become familiar with it, you can draw underground really quickly. Their water closet carrier families are great! Being able to draw a restroom skid with such a high level of detail is a definite plus. Also, being able to create point files easily since their hangers, floor drains, and cleanouts have the points embedded in them. For a small BIM department I think Trimble SysQue is a good option. They manage the database and you can send a request in for more content if it is needed. For larger BIM departments or people that are doing cloud spooling with Stratus or MSuite it becomes more problematic especially on the mechanical side with needing to use taps and the functionality of them being less than stellar. Larger BIM departments are usually able to have a person manage their database internally and that helps keep the content parameters consistent. Most MEP Fabrication content that I have used does very well with taps and the piping is able to be run quickly and does not need to be processed.

Cons
Knowify
  • Syncing with QuickBooks could be a little better, only syncs to main customer and not projects.
  • Does not have the ability to be used in the field.
  • Cannot collect payment or invoice from the field, only office staff can do this which makes for a lot of missed money collection.

  • The ability to erase points that have been written to a TFL file would be a great addition.
  • Fitting to fitting placement can act up from time to time.
  • I think that the spooling can continue to improve.

Knowify does job costing which HouseCall Pro does not, it syncs with QuickBooks a little better than HouseCall Pro but does not allow our technicians to invoice from the field which is crucial.
