What is out there that is being used for estimating in general?
My shop runs moldings, has a pre-hung door line, and we are starting to produce custom cabinetry and some interior/exterior doors.
I am currently working with the Tradesoft bundle of programs(as the bundle came with a recent business aquisition) and am not thrilled with it. It does not seem to be geared to a custom shop.
I tried to get them to sell me on the software at IWF for what I am doing and they wouldn't push it on me either.
Tradesoft is a fantastic company, with software built specifically for custom Job shops. Perhaps you need to pony up for some training on it before you spend more money trying to replace it. As far as estimating, it's the best software I know of for estimating in a Job shop environment.
What did you find deficient? Once trained in its use, I think you'll find you can create the data you'll need to estimate the way you want.
I'm president of TradeSoft. I checked your record and you are current with support, so please contact our help desk and they can get to the bottom of whatever it is you are struggling with. It could be that you need some training, or at a minimum, check out our myriad tutorials and training videos. ProjectPAK is an awesome estimating tool and it is designed to do custom, one off estimating. Or if you prefer, contact me at 800-289-6326 so we can figure out what is preventing you from realizing the benefits of ProjectPAK.
