Linesight (formerly Bruce Shaw) Ireland

"CostX is our preferred estimating tool and we are currently using it on every continent we are present in. Our first interaction with Building Information Modelling took place in early 2010, and since then our experience is that Exactal have ensured that they are up to date with the latest developments within the Design Industry. Our suggestions to improve product functionality are properly considered and, where appropriate, are implemented in new product releases and feedback from Exactal’s support is always timely and comprehensive. "

Nicky Dobreanu, Senior Cost Consultant (IRE)

Willmott Dixon United Kingdom

"Before CostX, I was using other competitor software. One of the appeals of making the switch to CostX was the added advantage of having CostXL available to us. CostXL can link into Excel spreadsheets and directly connect Excel to the data within the CostX program. This is a great benefit and makes the overall system very easy to use for my requirements. Very simply, it is easy to use, accurate and does what it says on the tin."

Caroline Williams, Precon Surveyor

CTS Shopfitting United Kingdom

"Before CostX, we were using Microsoft Excel. A major client decided to roll out BIM Modelling on all future projects and that's why we made the decision to switch to CostX. Now, we are compliant with the client's requirements and can comply with their BIM roll-out; plus we have the capability and experience to cost BIM models in the future should other clients implement BIM too. Overall, CostX is a powerful package that can provide sophisticated costing with clarity."

Iain Bartholomew, Estimator

DCWC Australia

"CostX has focused our core business of cost planning and cost advice into the 21st century compared to other IT solutions in the marketplace. With CostX we can quickly analyse drawing revisions and simultaneously provide the cost impact. CostX are continually evolving the program and their maintenance program provides the necessary backbone to continuing those core business solutions for our offices nationally."

Mark Mammarella, Managing Director (Queensland)

Multi Span Australia Australia

"Multi Span Australia has been using CostX for a number of years now and it is embedded into our project delivery cycle from initial project conception through to providing on site quantity control. With our in house 3D Design capabilities, CostX provides a great tool for working on the cost planning and control of our projects. It is easy to use and is accessed from various levels of people within our organisation. CostX has been a very stable platform for us and we get great product support."

Martin Hood, Business Development Manager

Mitchell Brandtman Australia

"CostX is an integral part of Mitchell Brandtman's 5D Cost Planning business and workflow. It has been that way since 2004 when we first implemented version 1.0. It was easy to decide to leave our previous provider because CostX had so many incredible features. There is always pain in making a shift but that's all history now because it was one of the best decisions we've ever made. The 3D capabilities of version 2.20 in 2006 and the support of the team have made it so!"

David Mitchell, Partner & 5D Quantity Surveyor

The Estimating Department Australia

"A really good estimating software package, CostX successfully ties in all the key components:
- Digital take-offs
- Inter-linked and composite rate libraries
- Intuitive measuring and pricing
- An outstanding audit trail for materials orders
- A powerful drawing revision & update system
Without exception, every Client I have worked with has been impressed with the power and potential of the software. I highly recommend you get a demonstration. "

David Palmer, Sole Trader

Steele Wrobel Australia

"CostX software has become an integral process of delivering our PQS services to clients. Accuracy of measurement is fundamental to many of our basic services and CostX gives us the ability to take-off from the drawings and file our electronic take-offs. It is particularly useful for similar projects or for project revisions, where we can readily identify drawing changes and updates. We are also beginning to explore the 3D modelling capabilities which is the future direction of documentation."

Grahame Wrobel, Director

Beacon Consulting Australia

"Beacon Consulting was formed in 2007 and had been exposed to all other estimating and take-off software packages prior to this time. At the time we made a strategic decision to adopt CostX early based on our experience in Dubai and Ireland using BIM models for the purposes of Cost Planning and Estimating and the early promise that CostX showed in this area. Since 2007 we have nothing but praise for the Exactal team for the pace and regularity at which new versions and features have been added to the software, all of which have significantly improved both the software and our productivity. It is a fact that CostX saves us time, money and resources and is a cornerstone of our service delivery."

Greg McDonald, Director

Akalan Projects Australia

"I would like to thank you for all your work the other day and most importantly for finding a solution. You have made my life easier and it puts me at ease knowing if I require help in future, you will find a resolution immediately. I am so happy with the CostX program and especially the support from Exactal. I have used many different programs for Cost Planning/Estimating and I can honestly state in my opinion- CostX is number 1. Keep up the good work!"

Joseph Campo, Senior Estimator

"I have really enjoyed using CostX since our purchase, 2D measurement has never been so easy."
