Call it a REPEAT!
On-Screen Takeoff and Quick Bid were once again named to the FrontRunners Quadrant for Construction Estimating Software by Software Advice for September 2020, Ranking in the top 10 vendor quadrant means OST and Quick Bid excelled in terms of Usability and User Recommended scores.
What’s it about? FrontRunners is based on reviews from real software users and is designed to highlight the top construction estimating products in North America. With the goal of helping construction businesses make more informed decisions, only products that earn top user ratings make the cut as FrontRunners.
Usability and Value Cited
Using a data-driven assessment, FrontRunners identifies estimating tools based on real-world users. Powered by Gartner methodology, FrontRunners assesses and calculates a weighted average of scores. The criteria includes ease of use, the value of tool relative to its price, and how likely users are to recommend the software to others.
To even be eligible for consideration, a product must:
- Have at least 20 unique user reviews in the last 24 months to provide a sample that is large enough and recent enough to be valuable to buyers.
- Be a stand-alone construction estimating software productserving North American users based on product reviews submitted from that region.
- Be relevant to software buyers across industries or sectors—no “niche” solutions that cater exclusively to one specific type of user.
Must also offer these features:
- Proposal generator
As such, user ratings are collected by Software Advice using various scales (usually 1 to 5 or 0 to 10); all ratings scales are translated to a standard 5-point scale. Newer reviews are weighted more heavily, and products with more reviews are advantaged over those with fewer, to provide a sample large enough and recent enough to be valuable to buyers. Scores are then translated from a 5-point scale to a 100-point scale.
