Clients call Smart Documentation a problem-solver and time-saver

Since Agacad began developing software for Revit® in 2007, users have given us a lot of feedback in many forms – from detailed case studies to simple video remarks and emailed quotes. Here we share a collection of written comments we’ve received over the years from clients working on building projects all over the world.


Engineers, architects and BIM managers all over the world praise the “lifesaving” tools in our Smart Documentation software, which they say makes documenting Revit projects “fast and easy”.


In their remarks, given below, they also say Agacad’s support helps them get maximum value from the technology.


Here’s what users say about specific features of Smart Documentation (some parts of this toolset were formerly single Revit extensions: Dynamic Legend, Excel2R, Smart Assemblies, Smart Sheets, Sort Mark):

Smart Documentation reviews

User testimonials voluntarily shared with Agacad by current and previous clients.


Tom Dorner

BIM Specialist, USA


“Very professional software company concentrating on Revit add-ins. I use their Smart Documentation software which saves me an hour or two a day and produces better construction documents than I can do with Revit out of the box. They are so good it makes you wonder why Autodesk has not purchased them.” (feedback from Google reviews, left in April 2023)


Martynas Toleikis

Head of Engineering at Glasma Services UAB, Lithuania


“We need to number quite a lot of elements, sorting and marking them by type and phase. We found Agacad’s Sort Mark tool makes that fast and easy.” (2021 feedback)


Mikael Rupponen

BIM Specialist at ALA Architects Ltd, Finland


“We have used the Sort Mark software daily, and it has been working very well. We have found it extremely useful. Actually, it is a must have for us.” (2020 feedback)


Freddie Kleiner

IT/Drafter at TJP Engineering, USA


“Our company develops Excel schedules far ahead of our model design, so it is necessary for us to include those schedules with our Revit projects. In the past, we would use AutoCAD and its datalinks to export a CAD file that we would import to Revit which [gave] inconsistent and bewildering results. Now we can update our schedules with the push of a button and even see at a glance if schedules are out of date. Beyond that, Agacad’s support is amazing. We encountered a formatting/display issue which we informed them of, and in a very short time the issue was resolved in the next version of the software. I haven’t experienced anything like that with any other software company. Incredibly satisfied!” (2019 feedback)


Donovan Young

CEO and Architect at Donovan Young Architecture, South Africa


“The software works fantastically. I really cannot do without it.” (2019 feedback)


Julian Phoon

BIM Manager at NDY (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, Malaysia


“Excel2R is a time saver when generating tables and schedules. It works seamlessly.” (2018 feedback)


P. Todd Thongeiam

Architectural Designer at Stir Architecture (formerly Altoon Partners), USA


“Excel2R is simply a helpful and user-friendly Revit add-in.” (2018 feedback)


Jason Wallis

Technology Process Manager at Hanssen Construction, Australia


“Smart Assemblies is a critically important tool in our business and Agacad’s support has been amazing. What makes the tool for the production of shop drawings so powerful is it’s open/sandbox design. The users’ imagination and willingness to experiment are its only limitations. It has enabled our different departments to solve problems and increase drawing outputs.” (2017 feedback)


Tarmo Lähdesmäki

Construction Engineer at Insinööritoimisto Savolainen Oy, Finland


“Sort Mark is an essential tool when creating complex structural elements with lots of components that all need to be numbered. Smart Assemblies is an essential tool in creating and managing assemblies. Without its dynamic update, making changes to multiple similar assemblies would be impossible. After setting up, creating shop drawings becomes very easy.” (2017 feedback)


Cenk Erkoçoğlu

Architect/BIM Manager at A Tasarım Mimarlık, Turkey


“Sort Mark is a real lifesaving tool. We were working on a high-rise building, which has 7 basement floors, one podium and two towers, and we were supposed to renumber rooms and then doors according to given revised marking numbers of rooms. There were 3,500 of doors and we revised all room and door numbers in 5 seconds. Annotating dimensions is also a very important process. Even though it is a simple job, it takes a long time. Quick Dimensions is very helpful tool. You can easily annotate dimensions with one click.” (2017 feedback)


Mike McGinn

Building Information Modeler / Plumbing Designer at PACE Collaborative, USA


“Our company utilizes both Smart Sheets and MEP Hangers heavily. MEP Hangers has saved us countless hours placing hangers on piping and ductwork. There is a small learning curve, but Agacad was there to help explain and make recommendations based on our company’s needs. Smart Sheets has been a great time saver when working on larger projects with many floors or areas. For example, a large hotel complex. We would recommend these products to any company that places hangers or works with larger scale projects.” (2017 feedback)


Dominique Compagnon

CEO and Architect at Agence D. COMPAGNON, France


“Vos produits sont indispensables. J’ai surtout utilise l’outil “Legendes” car autant que je sache c’est le seul a permettre la separation Droite/Gauche pour les legendes de portes et fenetres.”

Translation: “I found your tools essential. I’ve mainly used Dynamic Legend. As far as I know, it’s the only one that allows left/right specification for door and window legends.” (2016 feedback)


Doug Mahoney

BIM/CAD Leader at KPFF Consulting Engineers, USA


“I am very happy with both the Smart Sheets and the Excel2R add-ins. I’ve only had the need to use each a couple of times, but the time I saved on just those projects more than paid for the software.” (2016 feedback)


Ian Kidston

Owner of All Extension Design Service, Australia


“Of the ones which I am now using daily, Dynamic Legends is one of the tools I was really keen on. I now provide graphical schedules for pretty much anything I schedule – I love this tool. Quick Dimensions is quite good at speeding up the dimensioning of face of walls, openings, grids, etc.  All in all, I am happy with the tools. They seem to be robust and haven’t caused any problems in Revit itself.” (2015 feedback)


Chester L. Morgan III

HVAC/Plumbing Designer at Integrated Facility Services (formerly Air Masters Corp.), USA


“Excel2R is very easy to use and helps me get what I need quickly. Everything works perfectly on the formatting. Great job to your team! And thank you for taking the time to look into the issue I was having and make the adjustments I needed. Thank you for all the wonderful support.” (2015 feedback)
