I would recommend HBXL to anyone, the quotation that it gives out keeps me in front of my competitors.

I get more work because of the quotation it breaks all the work down and the clients love it.

Also the back up from customer care team is the best, they will sort out any problems with a friendly customer service that makes me happy.

Would I recommend HBXL? YES YES YES.

Happy user.

Original Trust Pilot Review

Les Hough, L Hough Building and Roofing Services Ltd

I have used Plans Xpress for a few years now after moving from AutoCAD lite. Originally I was drawn to HBXL for the multiple tool plug ins and bought PlansXpress and EstimatorXpress which was a great time saving tool as long as you input all the details into PlansXpress. A change of circumstances meant I didn't need the additional tools, but will be sticking with PlansXpress. Training and support is first class and I would happily recommended HBXL building software.
