RS Means is definitely who I turn to and rely on for the most up to date cost date in the construction industry. It can be very challenging keeping an accurate log of unit costs, and RS means give a more general understanding of these unit costs, location multipliers, etc. for knowledge gaps.

What do you dislike?
I wish at times that we could know the source of their data compiling, that way we could know for sure how accurate it is, especially for our location. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Definitely consider RSMeans as a tool for data that is updated, at the very least, once a year - which is more frequent than at my own company, personally. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Knowledge gaps and scope gaps, especially for trades that are used less frequently so unit costing is not recently upheld internally at my company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
