Excellent software

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: FastDUCT overall is an excellent choice to make if you want speed and detail. The price is also very reasonable

Vorteile:

This product has all the bells and whistles you need, fast and easy to learn, on screen takeoff, and the ability to customize to suit your style of working. The people there are always ready to answer questions when the need arises. This product along with Fastpipe is used daily by me and I highly recommend you give it a try.

Nachteile:

I can't think of any at the time of this review. This product has it all covered.

FastDuct is a quick and intuitive estimating tool

5,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

The ability to make a multitude of different takeoffs/sections for a project

Nachteile:

The Quick Pick Menu could be better customizable

Antwort von FastEST

letztes Jahr

Bruce, thanks for the review. About the Quick Pick Menu -- the buttons can be customized within the fitting spec editor, but we realize that can be a tedious process across multiple specs and sizes. If you have any ideas for how it could be easier to use, give us a call at 800-828-7108. We are always looking for ideas of how to improve the software, and we get most of those ideas from users like you. Thanks again.

Sheet metal Commerical use.

3,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: The one biggest benefit of this program is the time it saves.

Vorteile:

This product is really easy to use. It save a lot of time and you can teek it to match most of your needs.

Nachteile:

You are unable to create your own catalogs and pricing. Some of fast Duct prices are way out of line. An example would be to insert a metalbetsos catalog ,or a norfab. Also the workbook they provide is full of errors that take time to fix.

PSM - FastDUCT Review

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I'm our HVAC Estimator, I commonly put together estimates in the mid six figure range and I can't imagine trying to do this without FastDUCT. We had looked at other software solutions but this is the best one we found hands down.

Vorteile:

The software is very easy to use and understand. Product support is excellent.

Nachteile:

Wish there were keyboard shortcuts for common functions and the ability to click two end points to fill in duct.

Antwort von FastEST

vor 4 Jahren

Thank you very much for your review, Mat! We appreciate your feedback. We added a larger, more customizable menu of keyboard shortcuts to our latest software version, which I believe your company is currently running. So please let us know if you have any questions about those. And we don't currently have the AutoConnect feature in our FastDUCT program (like we do in our FastPIPE system), but we will definitely put it on our requested features list for prospective development down the road. Thank you again for your review, Mat!

Fastduct Review

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Outstanding when you add up all the benefits. I'll never stop using it.

Vorteile:

I have used Fastduct and Pipe for several years . I not only am able to produce extremely accurate bids and take offs, But I use the recap sheet for quick change out bids for service and construction. Once I set my parameters, its remarkably fun and easy to produce bid after bid and be in the middle with all my competitors and be awarded 80% of my bids. Plus they keep updating with new features which I usually find some of the new features helpful depending what area I am focusing on at that time.

Nachteile:

When setting up your export file to send to a vendor for pricing , it can get a bit overwhelming as the vendor doesn't want all the details as they have to input it into their computer and their computer adds all the little details. So you have to edit it then send it. But for that extra step I can accept it Fastduct and Pipe is awesome !

Best customer support I have ever dealt with.

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I am in the plan & spec business. Pre-Bid changes are becoming more frequent. I used to dread this especially when the addendum plans are not clouded. With FastDuct this problem has been solved. Bring in the new plan with your previous take off and the changes are obvious and easy to make. I have never dealt with better customer service. I was working on a Sunday Night and had recently updated my home PC to Windows 10. I tried to open FastDuct and got an error message. 10pm on a Sunday night and not only did I get a phone call from the president but he had me up and running in a few minutes.

Vorteile:

The speed accuracy and customization has allowed us to not only bid more projects but also to handle change orders more efficiently.

Nachteile:

Honestly I cannot think of any negatives.

Excellent product from an excellent company

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: We noticed with our old system that many of our estimators were spending time running reports for operations instead of estimating cost for new work. FASTDUCT immediately removed that waste because it creates all reports natively in Excel. We also noticed that the way to setup specs for duct were MUCH more streamlined in FASTDUCT than other products... you could tell the developers had sheetmetal experience.

Vorteile:

FASTDUCT is easy to start, easy to use, provides all reports in native Excel format, and an excellent value for the money. Though it is rare that we need assistance, the customer support is second to none. We have always received immediate responses to our questions, and that matters in today's fast-paced world. I highly recommend this product whether you are doing $100k or $100M bids. The ability to carry multiple tables for labor (shop or field) is also a nice feature if you do different kinds of work or have your own time-studies for certain products.

Nachteile:

I would like some more options when estimating double-walled duct, but they are minor.

FastDUCT is an excellent tool for the HVAC indusrty

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: My background is HVAC duct fabrication/installation and learning the fastDUCT takeoff software was easy and fast.

Vorteile:

I really like the simplicity of learning the software and the how simple it is to customize my take-offs.

Nachteile:

A feature I would like to see is when taking off rectangular duct system and I choose a square to round fitting, to automatically go into the round duct take off mode.

Antwort von FastEST

letztes Jahr

Dave, thanks for the review! Great idea of automatically switching to the round spec when you take off a square to round fitting. We will get that in the next version.

Excellent Value

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: i am able to bid a lot more jobs in a shorter amount of time. pulling up records, making modifications and performing change orders are much easier using the program

Vorteile:

not as costly as other programs on the market but it still has tons of features that provide accurate and detailed estimates for jobs. staff is very quick to respond to any requests for help or troubleshooting.

Nachteile:

because it is set up using national averages it does not reflect local data for the market i work in so we need to constantly make adjustments to multipliers within the program to compensate for the differences. once the multipliers are set up in the program it works fine though.

Kommentare: I've been using it for 7 years here with very good results. I've been doing mechanical estimating over 40 years and I wish I found out about FastDuct earlier on in my career.

Vorteile:

It's very easy to understand & use. Customer support is just a phone call away. Catalog/pricing updates come automatically and keep you running smooth.

Nachteile:

Hmm, not so much on software but material systems such as different pressure class aluminums, FRP ductwork, PVA coated ductwork

Review of FastDuct by Daily User

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Over FastDuct is a very effective tool at performing estimates on projects. It saves time and allows us to be more thorough then previously.

Vorteile:

FastDuct allows me to quickly and accurately perform take offs of most any project we have come across. On top of this when we are completed we can quickly look at projects floor by floor and generate detailed excel spreadsheets of the project. Within this spreadsheet we can also keep track of all additional costs allowing for a very details project breakdown.

Nachteile:

There is no shortcut keys within this software. That means all repetitive tasks need to be clicked through step after step.

Kommentare: Very good customer service and good price

Vorteile:

It is simple to use with images of the parts, our junior staff can easily become operational with a short training. The reports are clean and simple to use. We purchase our ductwork and we enjoy the flexibility.

Nachteile:

The settings are flexible but it can be difficult to navigate in the options. Also some softwares have an option of a auto select the elbows etc... And the fact we have to create new sections for acoustic liner can be time consuming.

FastEST was the perfect solution for our needs!

5,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

The takeoff features have been vital to our day-to-day since using FastEST. We came from doing everything on paper, and now it's so much more convenient, accurate, and easy to do it all digitally.

Nachteile:

I use FastEST in a virtual machine on a mac. Sometimes the software can start to lag if I have a lot of takeoff items already.

Kommentare: FastDUCT has enabled me to bring more consistency to our bid process by giving me a tool to estimate our man hours better. FastDUCT has also given me a tool to get a pretty good sheet metal estimate together for quick turnaround bids that my vendors can't get out in time.

Vorteile:

The interface is pretty easy to learn. The customer service is the best I have encountered.

Nachteile:

I would like to see more video tutorials or online help that I can refer to. I work all hours and it would be nice to have those resources available.
