Awesome!

Amazing just amazing, from everything they do from top to bottom they will work with you and help you and bend over backwards to satisfy you!

Pros

The program is really easy to get started and use. It also will do thing you never thought about doing for example (demo parts of the job)

Cons

The only thing I can think of is that its another to take in at first and to try and do this all alone but that is where the customer support is extraordinary, I mean they are Johnny on the spot I wouldn't use anything else for my take offs.

WinEx Master won the bid!

I recently used the program for a proposal on a project with several sites and a wide range of scopes of work. The client had provided quantity take-offs for cut and fill and import materials. We were able to double check their quantities and determine that the client's quantities were high by about 20%. We submitted our proposal with an alternate and take-off backup, reducing the overall cut and fill, and import costs considerably. Having confidence in our take-off's allowed us to go to the client with this project savings and ultimately helped us win the bid.
The technical support has been an incredible help. They take the time to understand my take-off requirements and offer solutions. I do a lot of my take-off's after hours, so most of the time, its just support getting back to me very promptly with a few pointers to help me work more effectively.
I have become more confident with my take-off results when I use the program. The more I use WinEx Master, the more indispensable it is becoming to the estimation process.

Pros

I like that the software will work seamlessly with different types of electronic media, pdf or AutoCAD for example. The visualizations are high quality and very detailed, making it a very effective tool to explain a take-off to others. The program is easy to manipulate to allow "what if" scenarios. There are built in features that make previously difficult tasks easier (Alt Plan). The on-screen prompts are very helpful. The program support has been incredible and very knowledgeable about their product and my industry. The program is not a drag on my laptop resources.

Cons

I have not found an aspect yet that I can say needs to be improved. I would like to see more help videos and a little more detail in the manual, but neither of these items have been a problem because the support has been incredible.

Too many processing errors.

Pros

Line tracking is is a good feature. Data input screens are well-thought-out, and graphics seem to be pretty good.

Cons

Too many processing errors. They just can't seem to get topsoil re-spread to calculate correctly. Software design seems to be a long way off from end user in terms of knowing what kind of info an excavator wants. We are excavators. Keep it simple and stop adding functions that don't work. Many other software packages cost much less with little or no yearly subscription fee.

One Of The Best Takeoff Software Programs

Using WinEx has been outstanding for my company.

Pros

It's easy to use but if you do run into problems you can reach a rep almost immediately for help and their explanations are easily understood (especially [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]).

Cons

Not applicable, I like everything. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is an asset to WinEx.
