OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES. DISCOVER HOW YOU CAN BENEFIT FROM software features, tailored for the asphalt industry.

The solution for the asphalt industry

1 – “ONE-STOP-SHOP” FOR ALL ESTIMATING, PRICING AND ANALYSIS NEEDS

Benchmark Estimating Software provides asphalt companies with a “one-stop-shop” for all estimating, pricing and market share analysis needs.

Benchmark Estimating Software works effectively for all types of projects, at all stages, from construction through to maintenance projects. One software system that is easy to use and tailored to your asphalt operations.

2 – GENERATE PROFESSIONAL QUOTES AND INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

Benchmark Estimating Software overcomes the need to start from scratch for every new estimate, thus leading to significant increases in productivity and efficiency.

Benchmark Estimating Software generates professional quote reports which you can email directly to your client as a PDF document. All quotes can be customised with your company logo and you can include your own standard and project specific conditions.

For projects where pricing varies from region to region, the Regionalisation feature allows you to automatically select costs appropriate to a particular area.

3 – PRICING FOR REPETITIVE DAY-TO-DAY PROJECTS

Pricing repetitive asphalt projects with many parameters is made easy with Benchmark Estimating Software’s Routines function. Equally suited for day-to-day quotes through to more complicated items in larger estimates, Routines take the guesswork out of asphalt and spray seal estimating.

After answering a list of questions, our software calculates your Labour, Plant, Materials and Subcontract quantities and costs, and builds your estimate automatically.

Watch our demonstration video, featuring Routines, for more details.

4 – PRICE LARGE MAINTENANCE TENDERS

If you price large asphalt or spray seal (surface dressing) maintenance tenders, where you have many roads to price and where there is a similar operation at each road, Power Routines can save you hours of work.

Designed specifically for the asphalt industry, Power Routines streamline the consistent preparation of these types of estimates, giving you more time to review and fine tune your pricing.

5 – GREATER SECURITY AND AUTHORISATION

Key for sustainable business operations and maximum profits is to issue quotes within your target margins. If a user generates a quote outside of their authorisation limits, Benchmark Estimating Software notifies their manager by email asking them to approve the quote.

Ultimately, this ensures greater accountability and control of your quoting processes.
