What do you like best?

In theory, the ability to immediately import your takeoff to Accubid Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A lot. The measurement process is clunky and has too many steps. Options that should be available in a "right click menu" aren't available. The inability to customize your measurement data for a CSV export. The inability to group/organize your measurements. The inability to click on my measurement in the totals box to highlight said measurements on the drawing. How slow drawings are to load. All in all, I feel like people who are designing this product aren't using it themselves, because issues that one would encounter would be easily reconciled by implementing simple changes and adding features that aren't there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try other products to see what is available and if they solve your problems/meet your needs. LiveCount feels inflexible to me but it may be exactly what you're looking for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well, you can get more accurate takeoffs, but the process is clunky. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
