Aspiring to even higher levels – New Version V7.82 raises the software benchmark

Version 7.82, our current software version, is currently being rolled-out and represents further confirmation that we are meeting our key deliverables. The strategic features and improvements of our new version V7.82 are specifically designed to elevate your organisation to even higher levels of profitability, productivity and professionalism.


Feature focus – Project Explorer & Item Filter

Navigating your bill of quantities (BOQ) is very easy with Benchmark’s Project Explorer feature. You can quickly expand to the Item and Resource level of your project, and switch between BOQ Items with speed and simplicity. This intuitive feature saves estimators time, and also makes it easier for new users to learn the software.


Rising to the challenge of changing job prospects

Benchmark Estimating Software and its sister company MIEngineers were privileged to collaborate with the University of Sydney’s, Uni 2 Beyond, internship pilot program and are extremely proud of the great success achieved by this pioneering initiative. Uni 2 Beyond is an inclusive education program that aims to develop both ‘work-ready’ skills as well as broaden the social networks of students with an intellectual disability.


Information security is the new competitive advantage

Protecting your company’s intellectual property is a non-negotiable business practice. Security of data and information has become the latest global business battleground with daily reports of hackings, viruses, phishing and Trojan horses invading and causing in some cases, irreparable damage to corporate and government systems.
