Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Bid Our company began the transition to HCSS heavybid about 2 years ago. This software has increased our bid volume because of its ease of use. Very happy with the product so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply, the Best I've been an estimator since 1970, before computers, before calculators! In my career I've used three different estimating soft wares. Hard Dollar, Bidtowin and Heavy Bid. There really isn't a comparison between them. The others are years old used cars compared to the Ferrari of Heavy Bid. Heavy Bid is fast, easy to use and powerful. The reports alone set Heavy Bid apart. During reviews, I can produce document after document to support my bid. I would recommend Heavy Bid to any estimator looking for a software to use. In fact, I've told several that they're not using the right one. There's only one right one, Heavy Bid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful bid program I have used Timberline Estimating, as well as just MS Excel, for estimates before. HeavyBid is more user friendly in terms of setup, and the training and customer tech service is great!! After attending a User Group Meeting, you will learn more than you thought you would, plus there are so many HCSS people to meet that will become good resources to contact after the training.
