Custom Cabinet Estimator-DESKTOP V8
ATTENTION: This is the DESKTOP Version.
There are two distinct versions of Custom Cabinet Estimator:
First there is the ONLINE version that we host on our servers (a Cloud version), for the Online version you pay a one-time setup fee, then a recurring (monthly fee) for having it hosted in the “Cloud”.
Then there is this DESKTOP version that you pay for once (no recurring fees of any kind) and install on your PC.
NOTE: there is an additional cost if a new version is developed, and you want to update to that new version, typically these new versions are offered to existing users for 40% off the selling price of the new version, but these new versions are optional, you only purchase them if you see value in the new features added.
The advantages of this DESKTOP version are:
- You do not have to have internet access to use it
- There are no recurring fees, it’s a one time purchase (unless you choose to take advantage of future upgrades)
The disadvantages of this DESKTOP version are:
- There is no multi-user version of this DESKTOP version, if you will have multiple concurrent users, you will need the ONLINE version.
- You can’t access this version from multiple machines, so if you want to do Estimates and/or Proposals from a machine at your home office, and another at your office, you will either have to use a remote connection, or choose the ONLINE version instead.
Free support for this software is provided in the form of Video Tutorials. All other support is billed on an hourly basis, and must be scheduled in advance. You can schedule one-on-one support/consulting here.
