CCTV Design Tools: JVSG Vs IPVM Calculator

I've looked at IP Video System Design Tool 8 as well as JVSG, both seem to have most of what one would expect. I'm wondering if someone who has experience with either or both of these could suggest why they might be a better choice than the camera calculator tool built into this IPVM site. Thanks.
