What do you like best?
It is simple to upload drawings and sketches into, set a scale, and start pulling together basic quantities. It is useful for high-level designing where rough areas/quantities are needed. Exporting to Excel is also very useful to base estimates from.
What do you dislike?
The floating licenses, file back-ups, and the export product into excel is often cumbersome. As stated, the program is great for high-level estimating which only requires basic quantities. Some details (Different wall types, formwork calculations for columns, etc. must be externally calculated. This is acceptable if the end user is the same as the individual that's doing the quantities. It can be hard to trust otherwise.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The program offers simple quantity take-off which can be organized, and formatted to meet many needs of our company. It is primarily used for conceptual design, or in instances of rough-estimating. We have put in a notebook sheet with a couple of sketches, which we in turn were able to put together a list of several basic quantities which we could use as basis for one of our estimating products.
