It’s tougher than ever out there. Margins are razor-thin. Schedules are ultra-aggressive. You compete against more firms on every bid. To win more work and ensure the profitability of every project, you have to build estimates with more speed and precision than ever before. One thing is certain: Yesterday’s estimating methods will no longer cut it.
Microsoft Excel, while a great tool, doesn’t protect from user error. It leaves a question of data accuracy and security.
A database driven, estimating system, standardizes your estimating process, enabling your data to be accurate, secure and documented.
Once we win the job, accounting has to manually key the job budgets into our accounting system (redundant data entry, error prone).
By integrating your estimating system with your accounting system, you streamline the process of setting up a job and increase its accuracy.
Not able to report across estimates for better analysis.
A database driven, estimating system, allows you to report across estimates, locate the estimate and the information more quickly, and to develop metrics of performance.
