Overall Satisfaction with Trimble SysQue

We use Sysque to create detailed piping models, hanger placement, point files for robotic total station layout, and spooling for fabrication. Having a library of fitting, piping, valves, and hangers allows us to create models that go into minute details and achieve a level of accuracy that has not been possible in the not so distant past. Like the saying goes, "aim small, miss small." Construction always has hiccups that are unforeseen in the modeling environment, but with the capability to get into the level of detail with SysQue, we can try to avoid more mishaps than we were able to before.
  • The content library is vast.
  • The support team is very responsive when problems arise.
  • In the latest update, the spooling is more efficient.
  • 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.
  • Being able to fabricate has a HUGELY positive impact on ROI.
  • Point files is a massive time saver for laying out hangers and ditches for underground.
From my experience, ANY mechanical contractor can benefit from SysQue. We use so many different types of material, sizes, and fittings that the content for these items is a HUGE positive. In speaking with electrical contractors, they can benefit from SysQue, but the materials and sizes that they typically use do not vary nearly as much as a mechanical contractor's does, so for them to make the switch is a little harder to justify.
