Great program and very customizable

Reviewed on 2019-10-31

It does 99% of what we want and need.

It does 99% of what we want and need.

Pros

Takeoffs are saved, uses excel as a final output, which allows us to customize a great deal.

Cons

Don't move fitting buttons during software updates! Allow for more customization of fitting button locations.

It would be nice to customize the job list(bidding) screen. Be able have maybe a checkbox to confirm a project has plans, or a takeoff has been completed.

Reasons for Choosing FastPIPE

It did not offer everything in one package. We would have to take off with OST and then use a spreadsheet to record all of our takeoffs.

On-Screen Takeoff

Reasons for Switching to FastPIPE

They did not have as good of a sales pitch, there GUI isn't as easy to deal with, and I believe it was more expensive.

Response from FastEST

Thank you for your review, Jay. We appreciate your feedback!

In our latest version of FastPIPE, we now allow users the ability to customize the first 21 fitting buttons per material spec.

We are also working on the ability to add job header fields to your program, which would allow you to further customize the job list screen.

Please call us anytime at 800-828-7108, if you need help with any items large or small, or have additional feedback to offer.

Thanks again, Jay!

Best Bang for the Buck

Reviewed on 2019-11-01

Pros

FastPipe is the most user friendly and flexible estimating program out there. I have used all of the different estimating software systems, over the past 25 years, and FastPipe is always my first choice. Mark and his team never forgot the KISS principal for estimating, keep it simple. I don't want or need the program to do everything for me, but I do need to know everything that is going into my takeoff. The onscreen takeoff and the ease of creating nested assemblies has taken FastPipe to the next level.

Cons

I would like a couple more reporting options, but over the years they have eliminated all the main issues I had with the program.

Response from FastEST

Perry, thank you for your review! We value your feedback.

Please reach out at any point if we can help you with any program issues, or if you have any questions or suggestions as well!

Fast Pipe Review

Reviewed on 2019-10-31

Pros

Easy to use. simple layout of the spread sheet.

Cons

Not enough different types of piping systems

Response from FastEST

Thank you for your review, Darrell. We appreciate your feedback.

Please reach out to us at any point at 800-828-7108, if you have any questions about our material database.

We have about 100 pre-built specs that come with the program, but if you aren't finding a particular piping type or material, it might well be in our database, but just needs set up within a spec. And we'd be happy to help with that (usually only takes a couple minutes!).

Thanks again, Darrell.

We use FastPipe to bid complex and simple piping and plumbing projects.

Pros

IT was very easy to start right out of the box. Their support staff quickly helps you get up and running with custom features.

Cons

Would be nice to have more localized costing, the parameters they have do allow for it, I just don't know how easy it is to implement.
