    I am a low voltage estimator and have several customers. It is flexible enough for me to have all the various assemblies, rates, parts and reports that I can export out to my customers. In my opinion it is one of the easiest and most flexible low voltage software products on the market today.

    Pros

    The ease of use mainly. After a few quick tutorials I was able to start doing my take-offs on screen. I created assemblies that made the job much faster and accurate.

    Cons

    I have to go to the Estimating page to create or add parts and assemblies. It would be nice if I could enter them from the take-off page. Minor change but would help out with the speed of take-offs.

    Esticom allows us to do more takeoffs in less time. This is great because many programs out there are not geared to Structured Cabling and this is. It made my job and those of my estimators so much easier. Our time to push out takeoffs have been improved by 87% and counting.

    Pros

    I love the ease of use and how easy it is to teach team members to use the system. Anyone can get up and running in under 2 hrs at a moderate level from zero experience. They have done an excellent job with making the program user friendly.

    Cons

    There are features that the program lacks and it does not integrate with Autotask (our CRM). Hopefully it will in the near future.

    It had all the features a Structured Cabling company need to complete takeoffs and ease of use. The program is so simple to use someone who have never done a electronic takeoff can learn in under 2 hrs.

    Good Procure Add On, unavailable for free licenses

    Great until it ended

    Great until it ended

    Pros

    Easy to use with Procore, eliminates multi platform data transfers and work processes.

    Cons

    Esticom has become an integrated Procure tool recently, however during the transition Procore users with non-profit or free licenses are not able to use the tool. I'm hoping that changes over the next year because this is the main function that Procore lacks and I currently pay for a separate third party app integration to compensate.

    I love that Procore has a non-profit program that enables us to train new trades employees for adoption of digital construction tech, so it's a minor annoyance that this functionality is not yet available for free!

    One of the best estimating softwares we have used!

    This has been a great experience working with esticom, i would definitely recommend it to others.

    This has been a great experience working with esticom, i would definitely recommend it to others.

    Pros

    What I like the most about the software is that it remembers the rates and descriptions we use in each of our estimates. This makes it easier to keep our quotes consistant.
    We also like that we can bring in drawings and measure from there, before we had to either print them to scale and get the square footage or we had to upload them to a seperate software.
    Also like that there is margin as the percentage. Not mark up. Most other softwares use mark up.

    Cons

    The only con we have with this software is that you cannot put different percentage margin on the labor side per line item. We can only do that on the material side.

    It has given us a way to keep everything digital and increase our accuracy on counts.
