    I have been using Best Bid Software for approx. 14 years. There Service is second to none. Anytime i have had a question or needed technical support they have been there for me. We have since added to our estimating team and Upgraded to Hybrid Pro Networking. Thru the whole transition Steve and his team were there to help us and out IT guys in Setting it up and having it run Flawlessly. I would recommend this software to everyone big and small companies. The software is flexible, easy to use and has features that the other guys don't offer such as having a take off program built into the Hybrid version. There are no hidden fees or fees for supports or updates.
