Quick Bid

Price estimates can be assembled quickly, reviewed and revised with updated material & labor pricing.  Create your own custom material database for the specific types and sizes of jobs you bid. Quick Bid streamlines the estimating process by automating and consolidating many functions, minimizing data-entry errors, miscommunications, duplications, and manual calculation mistakes.

MEP contractors can quickly calculate every detail they need to estimate and bid. For a finished bid, you can also manage the burden & add markups such as overhead and profit. Quick Bid provides an email quote process, eQuote, for suppliers to submit updated material pricing. 

On-Screen Takeoff has dramatically improved the accuracy and ease of our takeoffs. There isn't any more guesswork.

Digital Production Control

Incorporate all the actual estimate data, from takeoff, to bid, to build. Digital Production Control (DPC) integrates the takeoff and estimate data from On-Screen Takeoff and Quick Bid and brings it all together for real-time analysis of your job and a jump start on future bids.

DPC continuously displays project data for percent of confirmed work in place and compares that to actual labor hours used for that work. Detailed documentation of completion stages helps to clarify decisions and approvals to help protect your budget and completion schedule.
