About DESTINI Estimator

DESTINI Estimator is a cloud-based and on-premise solution designed to help construction businesses streamline processes related to pre-construction estimating, cost comparison, data management, and more.

DESTINI Estimator includes 2D and 3D takeoff modules, which allow organizations to determine costs, track changes, and update projects using vector PDFs and conceptual modeling functionalities. Key features of the solution include building information modelling, 'what-if' analysis, bid codes, and a historical database.

Extreme Flexibility

Reviewed on 10/14/2022

Pros

The ability of the product to easily mold to your company’s estimating database to the program. Most other programs are exceedingly difficult to manipulate.

Cons

Inability to easily bulk update information across all estimates without having advanced knowledge of SQL (I.e. meta data, WBS nomenclature, “data cleanup”).

Implementation takes time. They don't offer a canned out of the box database for costs or assemblies. So be ready to bring your own or build from scratch.

Pros

Beck-Tech has a tremendous support team to help with issues, bugs and general how-to's. The flexibility of the software allows the user to bend it to his/her will. We especially enjoy having all our estimates in a single database for quick resourcing of historical costs and enterprise level collaboration.

Cons

Not sure it's a Con so much as a point to before purchasing: because Beck-Tech is a leading edge software developer changes in the software are frequent (2-3 times per year). This means your team had better be comfortable with adaptation and pushing the limits of software.

Help desk is great. but seems when we fix one issue another one comes about. consist battle

Pros

Takeoff and estimator is in one location not two software's

Cons

Takeoff is terrible, not user friendly, terrible product compared to actually takeoff software, estimate version is not user friendly, change production in two places, same line items dont roll up (even with the toggle roll up). Importing rates with modified crews all screws up. Consistently finding destini glitches

Response from Beck Technology

We are excited to have improved our takeoff capabilities with our most recent version update. Thanks to feedback from our clients we can now provide capabilities that exceed anything on the market today. We also streamlined the versioning process and greatly improved the performance while we were at it. Please connect with our Support team to see how you can get the update. We have more takeoff improvements in the works, too! You are correct that our takeoff capabilities are not like other takeoff platforms because we are working diligently to streamline the entire estimating process. We are always eager to connect with our users on how we can constantly improve our products.

Destini Estimator Review

Reviewed on 11/8/2022

Using Destini Estimator has overall been a positive experience. The customer success and support...

Using Destini Estimator has overall been a positive experience. The customer success and support teams are fantastic. They are also working on expanding and developing the product. The BIM 360 integration is what we are most excited about in the future as this tool is increasingly used and as architects continue to develop their models. The new automatic pricing feature makes the software more intuitive and reduces the number of steps needed to perform takeoff and automatically link the takeoff to the line items in the estimate.

Pros

The automatic pricing functionality makes takeoff and pricing easy to gather quantiles from the plans and link to the estimate line item costs. The ability to break down an estimate into different scopes, phases, alternates and base bid or any number of scenarios using the WBS features. The BIM 360 tool is one of the most impressive features and the ability to pull quantities for the estimate from the model.

Cons

Onsite deployment is cumbersome and spotty. I would recommend the cloud base solution. The challenge with cloud based deployment and use is you loose connectivity if your internet connection goes down. The takeoff software needs additional functionality with takeoff tools similar to more mainstream products.

Great Service, they need more program developers

Great Service, they need more program developers

Pros

The features are very good, it has great reporting features and different ways of presenting the cost, for much easier analysis. Great 3D takeoff features but if you are in early stages of design you can't only rely on BIM models. You can't allow your estimate to be as good as your BIM model

Cons

Implementation needs to be more standardized, the support and implementation teams have done everything they can but the development of the program is lagging. 2D takeoff must be greatly improved. There has to be a simpler way to build assemblies. No available online tutorials. Need realistic set in stone dates for releases of required updates
