Before paying the price of Fast Track Estimating, it is necessary to understand if it is worth the investment than the other construction estimations tools in the market.
  • Functionality: One of the major competitors of Fast Track Estimating is the EZ Construction Estimator, which has a database of 2000 plus assemblies and components. EZ Construction Estimator offers estimates by area, estimate lists, assembly lists, and contracting. Although the feature list of Fast Track Estimating is similar, but the interface is not that user-friendly. The EZ Construction Estimator has a simple drag and drop interface, which gives it an edge over Fast Track Estimating. Another great competitor is ACCEO Estimation. It offers excellent features that include creating distributor orders, client invoicing, quotations, and integrations with accounting software. In addition, the overall interface is user-friendly. The ACCEO Estimation is although specific to the construction industry. However, it also offers some distinctive features for plumbing, heating, electricity, and ventilation estimations. Stack is another tough competitor of Fast Track Estimating as it is a cloud-based construction estimation software. It can be accessed from anywhere. Although there is a Desktop version available, the users need to pay for every update.
  • Pricing: The price for EZ construction software is $150 for a single-user license. You can reduce the price further if you have a coupon code. Although the price seems lesser than Fast Track Estimating after 12 months of unlimited upgrades, you have to pay for each upgrade. The price of ACCEO Estimation is around $1000 per year with a free trial. At the same time, the price of Stack is around $1999/year for a single user.
  • Support: Fast Track Estimating offers video training support along with 24/7 live support. EZ Estimator offers 8 am to 6 pm Est customer support along with complete training videos. ACCEO software offers in-person training, videos, documentation, and live online training.
