Kommentare: I had been putting off getting any sort of software packages for a long time as I really liked doing manual take offs and using spreadsheets. Cost X was very easy to change to after doing these type of take offs. I wouldn't look back now. I have had a new graduate start with me and it is very easy to teach them (as most of it has already been set up by me), this also keeps uniformity over take offs.
One of the biggest advantages for us being a residential / light commercial building company is that we seem to have a lot of revisions over a job up until contract stage - the revision tool has been great for this and makes doing a series of changes from one plan to the next a breeze and a report can give a detailed breakdown of the changes at these revision points.

Vorteile: - Really easy to get started, just set out dimensions as you would manually, set out your spreadsheets and link the two up. The more you use it, the more you learn, and it just keeps getting better.
- No need to save all the time as all your work is up to date.
- Easily relates to excel spreadsheets.
- Data from spreadsheets can be exported or imported with ease.
- Importing of .dwg files directly from the drawing team makes measurements exact. Any mistakes in the drawing files can be picked up and relayed back to the drawing team before another revision.
- When working on multiple build projects, it is a lot easy to open and close jobs from the same place compared to other applications where they would all be seperate files needing to be opened.
- Being able to compare drawing files, ie; site plan over a subfloor plan to work out pile heights easily.
- The ability to do measurements, add a legend with quantities, save as a PDF and provide to subcontractors. ie; joist layout for builder, measure of a full drainage plan for the drainlayer.

Nachteile: The only thing that I have found hard work is the report software provided with Cost X. This is mainly because I just haven't had the time to put into it. I can see that it will be very good, but can see that this is going to take some time to get what I want from it. Other than that I still was able to make up functional reports easy enough, just not to the level I would like yet.

Hi Charlie, thanks for your great review! We're so happy to hear that you're loving CostX! It's great to see you're getting full use from the functionality, and that the revisioning tool is making your life easier! With regards to the reporting, we do offer the standard report writer which allows you to create basic reports, but the custom report writer can be a little more complex. Because of this, we do offer training for it, so if you are interested in exploring it further that may be worthwhile. Thanks again!

Terrific software - just wish I could sort by rates to allow detailed review process

Kommentare: Measuring - big tick
Cost Planning - ditto
Speed in a Citrix environment is at time slow and / or crashes
Pure rating and estimating - needs work

Vorteile: Intergration of measure
Abilty to sort by element / trade / component
Ease of review of take off

Nachteile: When power pricing - live link library rates are great - however the ability to rate on the fly and sort projects according to common rates would allow "estimators" a more diliginent and powerful review process

Kommentare: It is a high efficiency tool. If used properly, it will make the job easier to take-off and the estimating comes easy afterwards. I like it very much.

Vorteile: It is a very complete software that includes almost every aspect of the estimating/construction business development. It will make a bid proposal and estimation look easier.

Nachteile: One of the issues I experienced is while sharing files. It can be tricky and very easy to make mistakes while transferring the CostX file to other party. It takes several steps in order to save and export your final product, and make sure it is compatible with your other party's version.

Vorteile: CostX has good features in terms of estimating as it supports 2D sheets and 3D models. It supports PDF, dwg, skp and other file formats. Calibrating feature and snapping feature while using 2D sheets is very helpful. Spreadsheet with costX maintains the data and organizes the project.

Nachteile: Model based takeoff in cost X for simple projects is achievable. But I have struggled when it came to projects with complicated geometry. 2D to 3D collaboration for the same file is not as suitable as it is in Assemble Systems.

Hi Zohair,
Thanks for your review! We're happy to hear that you found CostX to be helpful in a variety of ways, such as calibration and snapping. We're also glad you found the fact that we import a variety of file formats to be useful! In regards to your comments on model-based takeoff, this is suprising as we are often complimented on our advanced yet easy-to-use BIM functionality for takeoff. We would love to chat with you further about how you could use our Model Maps feature to assist with more complicated geometry. Please contact our US office on +1 (512) 768 8111 and ask to speak with one of our qualified Product Specialists.
Thanks again!
