Since I've been using it, so far it has been a good overall experience. There are always bugs in everything that need worked out but it seems to always work and it gets us job.

Pros

It's accurate, it's quick. Seems to be straight forward on how you use it.

Cons

Getting into the program to change pricing is a little tough, finding out what your changes do to the program is sometimes time consuming. Seems to be a lot of windows to get into the system and maybe a few too many duplications. When you make a change it is sometimes hard to tell if it actually worked, especially on the labor / hours.

Thanks for the feedback. Feel free to contact support for a web session. We are always here to help!

I have used Wendes duct estimating a long time ago. I am so impressed that they have a piping estimating program now.

Pros

The products are very user friendly, the take-off process flows very nicely. The help desk is always ready to help with any questions/problems.

Cons

I wish if you were transitioning from one size to another, that it would recognize and keep the size you are transitioning to instead of having to tell it to go to the new size.

Reasons for Switching to WenDuct and WenPipe

Mainly because Trimble was kind of complicated to use.

Response from Wendes Systems

Hi Ron, suggest when you takeoff a transition is just use the large size and the program has formulas to automatically figure sq feet and weights based upon the large size. Then just enter the smaller size when you select the next piece of duct. Support is always available to help you.

the review above is based on Wenduct only, I purchased WenPipe a few years ago but honestly I don't use it. My piping estimator does not like the product at all and has the same dislike of their screen takeoff. I am considering switching to another software.

Pros

The support is outstanding but the program is very outdated and I have bee waiting for the new 64 bit program for years. I have been using the product for 15 years and have become very familiar with it.

Cons

Takeoffs tend to take too long due to a number of issues starting with the dislike of the screen takeoff and constantly needed to restart from freeze ups.

Response from Wendes Systems

Hi Mark, Thanks for taking the time to fill out the review. The good news is we are just finishing up final testing of Wenduct 64 and should be available very shortly. Currently Wenduct will save as you go and will not need to restart. We would love to hear from your piping estimator to find out any issues he has. The Wenpipe 64 Program has tremendous capability and many times just a support training session will very quickly change opinions. Our support team always here to help!

The experience has been great !!

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is a life saver to start learning this software
We set up a few morning meetings for about a month and after that, I was able to get a bid done by myself..
We have really tightened up our numbers and are starting to see ourselves be more competitive in this crazy plumbing bidding world.

So a big thank you and a high recommendation to Wendes Software and [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] for all your efforts and continued help!

Thank you!

Pros

Once everything is set up it’s pretty easy to use
Just click and drag and everything is priced within that line

Cons

Set up has to be done and then you have to learn it.. as with any software program.

Pros

We've been using Wenduct for over 2 decades and have had great success with it. We actually realized about a year ago that we hadn't updated in years, but the product still worked very well. Now that we've upgraded, we have even more functionality. It definitely requires some training, but we've been able to on-board 4-5 employees on it relatively quickly (3-6 months with close training by a seasoned estimator).

Cons

The hardware fails from time to time, but the software has been pretty reliable. That said, setting it up initially takes a lot of legwork.
