    Over a year with no response. Interesting, must be an odd software company. Beam check we have and use.

    I used Plan Analyst when I was reviewing plans. It helped immensely when I was starting out and then I found I did not need it for the majority of small simple projects we where seeing here. I just purchased the 2012 edition since we will be adopting the 2012 codes and I have someone who has moved from the inspector slot to the plans examiner position. I believe it will be a good tool for him to train with.

    We use it here for big stuff...no training makes it tough to use, plus we have to go back in and edit everything for our state amendments. I think the boss likes it because it gives an impressive looking report. Most of what I see it doing, I can check faster manually.....
