My Company has been a user of Insite software for 24 years

I would highly recommend Insite & Field General. I use Insite for our earthwork quantities, pipe excavation and backfill quantities, subgrade material quantities, finish grade quantities asphalt, concrete and topsoil. And fine the quantities to be very accurate. I use Field General for our field survey and GPS layout. I build my own TINS for our GPS machine control. They are very accurate and easy to build in Field General.

PROS

Insite/ Field General has always been on the cutting edge of the technology. Whether it's been digitizer takeoff, PDF takeoff or CAD takeoff

CONS

Some of the reports could be a little more detailed. But all in all everything is okay

Vendor Response

Rick: We appreciate your kind words. We are just about to launch new classes for building models with Field General. Watch the newsletter for details. Let's screen share and find out what it is you are looking for in reports.

User Friendly Program

Overall this program has helped our company feel more confident about the cut/fill numbers we are using.

PROS

I appreciate how straight forward the program is. I am able to use this product to visualize the proposed site which is useful in figuring the logistics of the project.

CONS

Sometimes reading the reports can be a little confusing but it takes practice to understand.

Reasons for switching to InSite Elevation Pro

I had previously used InSite at a previous company and Earthworks did not have all the functions InSite offered.

Vendor Response

MacKenzie, thank you for your positive review. If you would like help clarifying the reports, we recommend taking the class Earthwork 2 available at https://insitesoftware.com/training/

Elevation Pro Review

I'm happy with it. Certain things such as a freehand mode could make it easier to use, but it allows me to perform takeoffs quickly and accurately.

PROS

Takeoff can be done very quickly. Alignment is easy. Simple to make adjustments if there's a mistake.

CONS

When using some messy vectorized PDFs, the magnetic feature can jump around a lot.

Reasons for switching to InSite Elevation Pro

Insite is much better (It was Insite SiteWork at the time)

Vendor Response

Adam, thank you for your review. You can see why we decided to develop an entirely new product using our years of experience. We appreciate your business running both. "Messy vectorized PDFs" often have layer management. A good technique is to select a feature to find what layer it is on and shut of the rest. If it's not layered, the magnetic selection is really there to help, but you need to learn the technique of effectively using it. There is a really good video called "Magnetic Endpoint Selection" in Help/Video Tutorials that explains the technique really well. Learning this will speed your takeoffs even more.

22 years of Insite!!

InSite has been great. I started my career using InSite and when I moved to another company, they were using Paydirt and that really was a downgrade. After a couple years, i was able to convince them to switch to InSite Sitework an everyone has been happy ever since.

PROS

I have been using InSite Sitework since I graduated College way back in 1998. This software was so easy to learn by a kid who didn't really know anything about dirt at the time. It really did help me learn about the industry from a hands on experience from the office to the field. I don't recall how many times I have called support, but each time has been a great learning experience.

CONS

Not to many, but i would only suggest adding perimeter lengths to subgrades since we need to know some lengths around buildings and parking lots. We have to trace some of these twice to get the info we need. Also add the surface area of rock alert so we could figure out areas to drill. (this has only been an issue a few times over my career). Lastly, the shrink/swell is a little different thinking than us dirt guys use. We tend to just do this by hand on our own. The theory is close but we approach it a little differently than the software.

Reason for choosing InSite Elevation Pro

Past experience of InSite was my selling point to Ownership and probably the high price of Agtek.

Reasons for switching to InSite Elevation Pro

As stated above, I used it InSite at my previous employer and suggested the change.

Vendor Response

Cory, thank you for your review, enthusiasm and suggestions. We are happy to have you as a long time InSite customer. Many of the recommendations are already in process!
