User Reviews of WinBID and Remote Takeoff

Being a long time user of the “Other Software”, there are 3 things that WinBid does not do.

1- Doesn’t take hours to “Convert” drawings. 2- Doesn’t become disconnected from the “other” software 3- Doesn’t get disconnected from drawings/database

After a little getting used to, I can’t see using any other take off software.

The Good…

Too many things to list

The Bad…

Adjustable sized count icons

The only estimating software in the universe that actually has a seemless connection to the accounting software

The Good…

The best feature is the single source database that completely unites your entire team onto common ground instead of everyone having their own data base that they can steal from you

The Bad…

The worst part of the software is that it has an overwhelming amount of reports you can run. After you get your favorites it turns into the best feature
