In a recent survey of AQ subscribers, more than half of the respondents said that they now “sometimes,” “often,” or “always” include drawings or models as part of their proposal process. In the same survey, almost 58 percent plan to provide drawings or models because “it will help ensure accuracy.”

If we didn't have the Designer side of AutoQuotes we wouldn’t be able to keep up with the clientele that we have. We have a large volume of business so I would say that it at least doubles our capacity.

- Tom Parker, President, GenX Consultants

I would say that JLR and AutoQuotes moving forward in the future will help us much in the way of integrating our own office into Revit and continuing the ease of use that comes from the equipment information that AutoQuote provides.
