HeavyBid Customer Reviews

HeavyBid is rated 4.72 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Note to TJ Phillips re: Review TJ - Looking at your comments it seems like you are missing out on some of the great features that are already part of the Heavybid experience! Everything you are suggesting is already part of the program. A lot of these "little" tricks of the program are covered during Usergroup meetings so talk to your boss and get there next time. You will find it both fun and informative!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please Fix these issues with Heavy Bid I am writing this negative review because support told me there was a place on the web site to give recommendations on how to improve Heavy Bid, but was unable to find it. I have 2 computer screens and Heavy Bid does not allow a user to have open 2 different jobs at the same time. This feature would be very beneficial while working on an estimate. It would also be great if I could have 2 jobs open, and be able to copy from one and paste to the other. Many bids now are unit price projects, and having common excavation as a bid item is common place. In large projects it is also common place to have the same activity multiple times in this common excavation bid item. Heavy Bid however, does not allow you to input the same activity more than once into a bid item. There are ways around this common problem, but it should not be necessary. I think if Heavy Bid made these changes their software would become a lot more user friendly and easier to create estimates.

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!
