    Has anyone used Quick Estimator? I am giving it a try and I am assuming it is similar to QB Contractors Edition? I currently use QB Pro but I was given a 30 day trial of Quick Estimator, I am just looking for some feedback from you guys/gals. I don't know if I should get the QB Contractors (b/c I am familiar with QB) or if QE is better.

    I have been trying it over the winter, and I will be using it next year for my estimates. I love the cost book, it would be a PITA to have that many items in Quickbooks. I also like the fact that I can base my estimate on the cost of my items, and adjust the markup percentages very easily.

    I have noticed some minor glitches with the software, but I have come to accept that with most software.

    I give it a thumbs up!

    It looks like a pretty neat program. I was hoping to do something like that with quickbooks but have not yet had the time to play with it.
