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. The platform comes with a sorting tool, which enables users to create and categorize estimates data using customizable fields.

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.

Plus, the system supports integration with various third-party applications, such as Autodesk BIM 360, Power BI, Navisworks, Microsoft Excel, and more.

Extreme Flexibility

Reviewed on 2022-10-14

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.

Alternatives Considered

Sage CRM, RIB CostX and CostOS

Reasons for Choosing DESTINI Estimator

Sage wasn't keeping up, didn't offer a solution that would accomplish what we needed to going forward as a company.

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.

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

Promising Software that needs to focus on the Takeoff Module

Reviewed on 2022-02-10

Pros

This is one of the best estimating software packages in the market. We were able to develop a very detailed and powerful cost database and align several different regions to make our estimates more uniform throughout the company.

Cons

The Takeoff module is not efficient and needs significant upgrades. We will continue to need to have a separate takeoff software until this is improved.

Response from Beck Technology

Aligning your regions and creating uniform estimates is a fantastic win! Glad to know the cost database is assisting in this effort, too.
