I'm looking for a complete estimating software package. Does anyone have any experience with Xactware Xactremodel? It seems fairly complete and they have a great reputation in the insurance/restoration sectors.

Can anyone in south/eastern ontario comment on the accuracy of the price lists for our area?

Any input is appreciated.

Hi Jeff,

I'm a former Insurance Restoration Professional who has used Xactware estimation tools for over 15 years and I can honestly say that Xactimate / Xact Remodel is the ferrari of residential / light commercial estimating tools on the market.

For most applications and the price, it's virtually unbeatable.

I went through this exercise last year and reviewed several programs. Depending on your intent, the best may be one that you create. I use Excel and make formulas that apply to what I am doing. I also contact several suppliers to get current pricing. Further, I connect with local contractors to establist a fair and average rate for my services. The "programs" do the same basic function but have some extra bells and whistles such as pictures and some pre-made forms.

The advice I received and pass on to you is to think about what you want a program to do and consider making your own, taylor-made to your situation. It can save you some money and be a better fit.

Good luck.

I have used it now for five mths. Xactware is definetly good, some of their prices are out of whack and editable but all in all its fast and efficient which plays much importance these days.

I'd defenitly consider it if I were you.
