An Hour to Put Together a $150,000 Addition

We have been using LiteningFast since 1997 and I can tell you that it paid for itself on the first job. I am not great on computers yet this is so easy to use. The two best things this program has offered us is to help our customers gain trust and confidence in us and to also protect ourselves from having to give our customers any extras without getting paid for them. With the easy to generate detailed estimate we now incorporate our estimate with our contract so it takes all the guessing and assuming out of the equation. If it’s not on the detailed estimate then we didn’t charge you for it therefore we need to generate a change order. The second thing is our customers love it. When we bid against other contractors who come in with this lump sum price that sometimes leaves them sticker shocked we come in with this estimate that’s broken down in every aspect of construction and they can see how we arrived at this lump sum price rather than something we just pulled out of the air. Our customers are impressed and feel like they can actually see what they are getting for their money before we even start. The best thing is they thank me for spending so much time to give them such a detailed estimate when it has really only taken me an hour to put together a 150k addition. Thanks Nick!!!!!

I Really Like is That It Speaks to Microsoft Word

My name is Sal Versaggi, Versaggi Construction, Sonoma, California. I’ve been using LiteningFast Estimating for over 10 years now. It’s so easy to use, I don’t know what to tell you. The support from the designer, Nick Hurd, is wonderful. I put an email to him, he responds quickly. I call him, he responds. He’s always been wonderful. My computer’s crashed along the way, several times, and I had to reset the software up and every time Nick has been there to help me out. So, the software is easy to use. It’s compatible, very compatible, with QuickBooks which is really good to have. It allows me to job cost and stay on top of my profit, or my losses. So I know where I’ve made my mistakes and where I’m profitable. The other part about it I really like is that it speaks to Microsoft Word. It speaks to Microsoft Excel. That allows me to incorporate or transfer the job cost or the estimate into my proposals and into my contracts, so that we have a guideline of payments that the customer or client feels comfortable with. And, as a result, I end up with a good software. Any software, especially estimating software needs to be accurate and versatile and I’ve found that LiteningFast is both.”

Thank You for Making Our Business Much Easier

“This is Norm Labrie from Charleston, South Carolina. My business is N. C. Labrie Custom Builders. We’ve been in business 32 years and we’ve been using LiteningFast for about the last 5 years. My projects range from $700,000 to $2,000,000, mostly residential projects. We’ve found Litening to be really easy to use, easy to set up, and probably most important, easy to modify, which we do, it seems like monthly. The support line is just fantastic and we can honestly say that if somebody is looking for a simple accurate well priced, easy to use, estimating system, then Litening is what they should get. We do thank you for making our business much easier. None of us like to do estimating and this makes a mundane job much, much simplified. Again, thank you much.”

I Was Able to Put Out My Estimates in Probably Half the Time

“Hi, my name is Bob Obermeyer I’m a builder from Cape May, New Jersey. I just called in to talk about the estimating program. I have bought Litening Software. It was very easy to set up and learn and once I had everything set up the way I wanted it, I was able to put out my estimates in probably half the time I was taking before hand, but that really saved me a lot of time doing it that way. I’ve never had a problem with the actual software. The only time I actually needed support was when my computer had a virus and I had to reload the program and I was able to get ahold of Nick and even though he was on vacation, he worked things out for me and got me the numbers I needed so I could get the program back up and running and I really appreciated that. So that’s all I had to say, thanks.”

The Ease of Use is Incredible

“Hi, this is Gary Krause and I would like to give a testimonial for Litening Software, which I’ve been using for several years now. It has the ability to create quality estimates that are on budget and help sorting out all the complex, complexities, of creating an estimate. Details are very important in estimating and LiteningFast software has a tremendous amount of detail. The ease of use is incredible. I’ve trialed a few other estimating software in the past and it was all way too complicated. LiteningFast with the Browse n’ Build catalog is so simple, anybody, even computer illiterate people can figure this out. Also, the program is so helpful with the video tutorials that there’s almost no learning curve. The support that Nick Hurd offers is exceptional and it’s so great when you call and not get somebody in India. You can call and talk to the owner of the company or one of his associates and get great answers and quick fixes. That’s so important when you are estimating and you have deadlines to meet. Again, I would like to compliment Nick and his staff for excellent customer service and creating a product that is actually helpful and useful. Exporting into QuickBooks has made it even more advantageous for me to use the program. I would highly recommend it to anybody in any trade. I’m in the landscaping trade and it’s been very very useful and helpful in winning bids and that’s what it’s all about. Getting the jobs. Nick, thank you for your wonderful program, I appreciate it and I will continue to use it as long as you have it out there. Thanks.”
