"Solid tool with an ever growing list of valuable features"

Comments: We are able to drive our goal of industry leader with the tools being afforded to us by B2W. We find new ways of use daily, we are able to get information to our field personnel quickly. Responding in minuets to issues not days and weeks. it is a platform we plan on building upon aggressively for a long time.

Pros: I truly appreciate the integration among the entire product line. It truly streamlines our approach to doing business

Cons: While I enjoy the integration, I do feel it could be better, the limited functionality of certain parts of the programs limit its full potential.

"CB, Inc. - B2W Estimate Overview"

Comments: We went from Excel/ Pen and paper to using a standardized database that will integrate with out new Viewpoint Vista Accounting package.

Pros: Best ease of use cost to price Construction Estimating Product out there. Best bang for the buck. If familiar with cost coding, production rates, cost to price estimating; the setup and go live can be achieved in a relatively short time span. Being able to have a standard with the entire team (Estimating, Project Management, Accounting, & Field personnel) is worth the purchase alone.

Cons: MSA and Blanket contracts are challenging to build in Estimate.

"Potential is there"

Pros: The best thing about B2W is how the different modules communicate with each other. Estimating flows into Track and Schedule to reduce redundancy.

Cons: There is a long learning curve to adapt to using this product. Setup is seemingly easy until it creates problems later and you have to start over. Not enough training is provided with the product and the charges incurred for additional training and setup is painful.

"Estimate Review"

Comments: Overall it has been a great experience. In the end it is up to the user to determine how much that they want to get out of the system . You get what you put into it (if you put in a lot of time and effort your results should be great).

Pros: Usability and user friendly. Easy for new employees to pick up. Security - we have the ability to allow user different levels of access. Also, integrates well with our accounting system.

Cons: Takes a lot of time and effort to get the system up and running. Have had some issues with mapping to our accounting system.

"Pros & Cons of the B2W Estimate Software"

Comments: We are solving every estimator utilizing company wide set parameters for labor cost versus the old method of each estimator generating what they believed to be the overall burden cost for internal labor. It also helps create historical cost for ease of reference for future projects.

Pros: The features that I like the most are the ease to create task templates and save them for later recall and use in different bids. These helps cut down on the time needed to put together an estimate / pricing for a project enabling you to bid more projects.

Cons: When a user is just starting to utilize the software it can be a little intimidating since there are so many options and features to customize your estimate. The very specific detail for a new user would be the biggest draw back that I could see but it is easily overcome by time using the software, as well as, the additional help provided by B2W.
